  1. It's because of salinity. I went to pt. lookout right before the pier was opened on that weekend. I had to fish out of the Solomons instead. Ended up catching cooler full of HUGE catfish and gave them away. Angler's Fishing Report says it too. https://www.anglerssportcenter.com/chesapeake-bay-fishing-report-may-24th-2019/
  2. $175 shipped or $165 PU Need $$ for new rod..
  3. Up For Sale Brand new in box Avet SX 5.3 Lever drag casting reel I received this as a gift but I already have a similar sized reel. Asking $185 shipped via USPS priority mail or $175 pick up Since I am pretty new to the forum, I prefer to meet up around Baltimore, DC metro or NOVA area. Thanks.
  4. I bought one last year out of curiosity. The quality is good but nothing special about the rigs. You can definitely DIY it. it is bit overkill for fluke IMO. I prefer bucktail with teaser.
  5. https://www.amazon.com/gp/BIT/aapromo?ref_=pe_24416190_409470770_bit_v2_a0054&tag=931156-20&bitCampaignCode=a0054%2Fref%3Dpe_btn_b%2FPromo_landing_page&pldnSite=1 amazon assistant extension deal. you get $3 off on $10.
  6. Water is warming up. Is it little early for Tog?
  7. This is great! Thank you!
  8. I know this topic has been brought up many many times. I tried to read most of them if I did not miss anything. I am looking for a spinning rod that will be paired with daiwa BG 3000. it will be mostly used as back up on the fluke party boat(no deep water fluking) for friends. Here is the list that I gathered from searching all day. I am trying to stay around $100 but I would willing to spend extra if the rod can serve as blackfish jigging rod as well. Which one would you recommend? Also open to any other recommendations! Tsunami Trophy Series Slow Pitch Jigging Spinning 661MH ($90) Tsunami Trophy Series Slow Pitch Jigging Spinning 701H ($90) Trevala Butterfly Jigging Spinning ($130) Jigging World Nexus Spinning 701S-MH ($140) Trevala S Jigging Spinning ($180) Black Hole Charter special 6'8" spinning (I would consider it if it is still $185 but looks like the price went up to $240) Black Hole challenger 701L ($350) Thanks in advance!
  9. You can’t go wrong with both Tranx and Lexa.
  10. NO. They are apple and orange.. Well, at least to me.
  11. Got a new pair of ugg boots for wife.
  12. Thanks for super quick reply! Would you recommend cabo ptse 50 over slammer iii 5500? Found a good deal on both
  13. I went out yesterday and tried out gosa 8k and ssv 4500 on 9’ mojo surf rod. you were right, gosa 8000 is way too big for the rod and I feel like ssv 4500 was little light. forgot to bring shimano socorro 5000.. So I am thinking to get under $300/size 5000-6000 range reel. I am looking at slammer 5500, gosa 5000 and 6000. (I am also open to other options) Which reel did you find works the best? I fish mostly at pier and jetty. Thanks, J
  14. Lots of great information here and I learned a lot! I got 9' mojo surf mmf rod and it looks like gosa isn't gonna work anyway. I will just put shimano socorro 5000 to see if it works
  15. Uh no! I thought gosa 6000 and 8000 are the same. Difference is just line capacity so it is a tad bit heavier. Do you think 10 ft Triumph would work better with the reel?
