  1. Where’d you get those kits? They actually look really good. The white/unpainted ones are probably my favorite.
  2. Are there any good books on lure making. I’ve tried to make my own in the past and they looked like something out of a horror movie. I’m just looking for books that can really explain how to turn a good lure.
  3. For cranking I use 12lb Sunline Sniper fluoro. Almost everything else its 20lb Power Pro with Sunline Sniper as a leader.
  4. Curado is great I mostly use it on the 2 setting that's minimal breaking because I still like to control the spool with my thumb its mostly just habit at this point. The 4 setting is also really helpful when throwing really light lures, they don't go as far but you also don't have to worry about a wicked backlash that would take up most of your fishing time trying to pick out.
  5. Daiwa Legalis 2500 size and a Favorite White Bird 7'2" MH. This rod is mostly used for the lighter stuff i.e ned rigs and wacky/neko rigs. However it'll have no problem throwing larger lures.
  6. Old Shimano Bantam, I don't really know what I was thinking when I got a bait caster as my first reel. First cast I ever made with it the reel backlashed beyond use. Seriously the reel just didn't work anymore after that, it sat on my desk for a while until one day I decided to fix it. It is definitely a fun reel to use now that I have experience.
  7. Thank you that cleared up a lot of questions. Im actually excited to try it out now.
  8. I was at my local tackle shop and I saw one of these. Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to buy one. How are you supposed to fish these lures? I was looking at it and thought you fish it like a walking bait. I realized that its best to ask this question here before I actually try to throw it.
  9. I really do miss Sports Authority, I got my first ever Rapala there. That basically started my passion for fishing was that one tiny little Rapala minnow.
  10. Does anyone know the name and company of this plug? Ive tried to do a little research myself and came up with nothing.
  11. Does anyone know what company makes this plug? Ive tried to do a little research myself and came up with nothing.
  12. Does anyone know of any good quality and moderately priced surf bags that hold a decent amount?
  13. Thank you everyone for your help, I decided to go with a Penn Spinfisher VI BLS 4500 size and a Tica TC3 9ft M. I never expected this post to get so much attention and I want to thank everyone who replied to it.
  14. Does anyone know any tackle shops on Long Island that sell Tica Rods? Id rather see them in person before I buy one, rather than online.
  15. 11ft cheap Daiwa rod from Dicks. It was definitely way more that I could handle. The beaches that I fish are pretty much just boat ramps with a little sand plot. That being said its mostly just larger schoolies with the occasional big fish.
