About NPV

  1. I just bought this Penn Torque 5 from another member on the forum less than a month ago and I have no used it at all. I have found out since then that our boat is gonna to need a new fuel tank so this has to go. The reel is in perfect condition and comes spooled with 40lb. PP. It has all of the Penn upgrades and the original parts will be included as well. Asking $400 shipped, this is what I paid for the reel. Not looking to make any money.
  2. Is this the same knot that goes by the name of No-Name knot, Yucatan knot, and Worm knot? If so I can attest for the strength of it, though I only use it in 30 lb. leaders and greater.
  3. Tying lighter SS (20lb) to heavier flouro (50lb) using an Albright has been a recipe for disaster in my experience. I have found that the braid doesn't seem to bite into the harder flouro. With that said I have been using the knot described above with 20lb SS tying to 20lb flouro and it has been 100%.
  4. Tentatively going up for sale is our 2000 Contender 25 Open. This boat was purchased in late 2016 and has had a host of upgrades and maintenance items performed in the time we've owned it. If you have any questions feel free to PM me at any time. Boat comes with a triple axle trailer in good shape. Asking $90,000.

  5. Pretty slow day from the rocks. Got one but the pods were small and sporadic, they didn't show themselves much at all.
  6. Hmmm, I will take a look at mine tonight.
  7. I've done very well fishing central LIS during the day (mid-morning) with eels on a three-way-rig. Here's and example of a daytime bass caught on an eel.
  8. What time was that, looks like late morning or early afternoon.
  9. Bunker spoons are very productive but require specialized equipment. If you are looking to use stanadard rods and reels with braid I recommend Tube and Worm with a weighted keel or Mojo Rigs.
  10. I saw some fish on them a few weeks ago. I didn't think they were Albies but who knows, pretty cool to see regardless.
  11. Still plenty of fish around. Got this nice bonus this morning too.
  12. Gibbs 2 3/4 Pencil. Believe it or not that fish measured out at 48" easily my biggest out of the surf and getting it on a pencil made it that much better.
  13. That reel will treat you well for years to come. Other than the occasional washing I haven't done anything to mine and it has been dunked, reeled under water, etc. and it keeps on ticking. Mine has seen time on a 7'6" Tidemaster Heavy, 10' Triumph Surf, and an 8' E6X Inshore and I have notice no rotor wobble with either (I have two Gosa 6ks).
  14. ^This guy is spot on get the 150.
