  1. Penn hands down. Shimano reels start to act funny after some abuse. I’ve been shimano my entire life and the quality is not the same anymore.
  2. I use sports tape. $3 at Walmart. Has never failed me. If I need to keep my cranking hand warm I just put on my hunting glove
  3. Small chunk. Big hook. Let it take it and set hook. Guaranteed catch and gut hook
  4. He is definitely the guy to watch. He actually covers and talks somewhat in-depth on using various plugs unlike others who just tell you what to use
  5. The master fisherman John Skinner on YouTube will show you everything you need to know
  6. Been a week since the hatch here in RI
  7. Idk is they could do that anyways but i’ve seen plenty of people swipe 40+ shorts everyday for weeks haha crazy stuff
  8. Thank you sir. I really appreciate your help. Just saved me over a Benjamin on repairs lol
  9. When you say glass, do you mean something like those glass beads used on certain fishing hooks? Something of that nature?
  10. Yes. Both main and pinion gear were replaced at the same time. Can you enlighten me as to what a shim is lol I’m guessing it is that brown copper looking ring?
  11. I try not to lmao but sometimes I just wanna try new things but never get to them. Only one that ever made it to the water was my metal lip and it got addicting
  12. Awesome catch man. Hope to join the club one day fly fishing to get a hog like yours
  13. I have already heard a lot about the redfins. They seem to run super shallow right on the surface for the most part or just under. Never used them and probably never will but considering carrying one just in case it’s the money plug on any given night. Would like to see how you guys fish them, under what conditions you fish them, and what your particular thoughts are concerning the plug. I know everyone does things differently and I always fish all my night plugs exactly the same but seeing how everyone else does things would be helpful
  14. So my stradics have some play in the handle and my gears have some play. Don’t know why cuz i just replaced the pinion and main gear on every one of them. Only thing I can think of is maybe the idle gear needs to be replaced. Anyone have any knowledge as to what could be the problem?
  15. I’ve been a Shimano guy my entire life so I wanna recommend shimano but man so many problems with handle idle and gear idle after a while. I recommend Penn or Daiwa. the slammer is a beast of a reel if you can find one. The clash is nice too. Just my two cents.
