  1. Thanks for the input guys, great info as always
  2. So I recently got a 11ft Lami GSB1321M. I know the rating is technically in the 2-5 area. But Ive seen guys throw lighter stuff with this rod such as 1oz- 1 1/4oz bucktails. Whats your guys experience with this? Or can I get away with using my 9ft ODM DNA to throw light bucktails up front on the open beach? Obviously I will eventually find out when I finally get down to the beach but Im just curious.

  4. I have a DNA 9ft paired with a VR150 and its a sweet rod, so Im sure the 8ft is just as nice. I also use to pair it with a Penn Spinfisher V 4500 bailess. But I now have the Penn on a 8ft Mojo Surf which pairs up nicely with that reel. I also replaced the handle with a Penn Slammer handle for a more powerful knob. But I would personally get the 9ft just cause you can get away throwing light stuff in the open surf with it as well. 8ft is fine as well if you only stay in the back bays.
  5. I do well with the dark green tubes, But I really like painting them black and removing the tube and replacing it with a 7/0 Mustad dressed with black and purple bucktail. But its probably more or less a confidence thing
  6. I personally landed a 20 pounder last fall at night, and my buddy landed a 30 the same night. Both were at the end of extremely far casts as well. Im not saying its the best choice but I wouldn't be so quick to shy away from tin at night. It should be considered another weapon
  7. I don't understand why there is a misconception about throwing tins/diamond jigs at night. I have had a lot of success at night with them. I feel like if sand eels are around its a no brainer...
  8. Fake news brainwashes another victim. RIP
  9. Anybody have any new news as far as beach access or closures due to this crazy world we live in?
