  1. Need advice on how to build vertical jigging how to space the guides and the size guides I should use maybe it can be spinning or conventional IDK. just look for advice on this topic.
  2. I've seen one up close but my worry is that I do alot of nearshore fishing and would it be able to handle Seas if it gets like 4ft All of a sudden. And would it be possible to do near offshore on good days. Also if you don't mind sharing what's the going price.
  3. I was looking into getting a new boat. Does anyone have any experience with savannah boat ss21? what does it ride like in ruff water?
  4. Any albe sightings yet
  5. i have made my choice its going to be conventional is there a preference on where you put the reel seat I was thinking at like 19" feels comfortable. also I'm using a size 16 spinning seat fits the reel would that be fine for a conventional setup? Also, I was wondering why some reel seats are put on thread facing forward any know the answer.
  6. All advice is valid I only bought material for the rod. So im bouncing back and forth should it be a conventional or spinning. But what I have available is spinning gear. But what I'm thinking is it worth getting a conventional with this build.
  7. I'm in the market for a new boat anyone have recommendations for a center console that is 21ft something does light offshore runs and jump around the block. I was looking at a maritime 20 pioneer 2003. Does anyone have any experience with these boats what can you do and how do they handle in hair waters?
  8. I was thinking to put a vr 150. But I just realized that I bought a slow pitch. Would a spinning reel work or just build it as a conventional. Also has anyone built a rod using cork instead of eva?
  9. so i changed my plan on the rod I'm going to do spinning on a REVSJ66M-CW-CG with kw guides does the spacing from the reel to the first guide matter that much? also what the max size guides should I be using for the first reduction guide I was thinking something like 25-16-10-8-8-8-8
  10. Would I be able to use the ngs system for a vertical jigging setup?
  11. I was looking at a 6'6" slow pitch mxh from mudhole
  12. Probably want to do a conventional with a spiral wrap
  13. thinking maybe 200g jigging may be going for an all-around setup that can go for sea bass to maybe small tuna.
  14. Does anyone have any idea how i can fix my rod epoxy i f* it pretty good but i have one coat on the rod already should i just let the layer dry sand it slowly and then redo it?
  15. it's not the guide it's the embellishment that got ruined but I don't want to remove the whole thing. What happened is that my hair got stuck when I was bending down to measuring some epoxy. I got most of the stuff out but it's all tacky so I was thinking to let it dry a day and sand and alcohol it then redo.
  16. usually, it can fall under car insurance but check with ur carrier first. Some insurance companies don't cover for it
  17. Anyone have experience with the CRM permit. Is it even worth getting?
  18. Was wondering of the interest in the Suzuki Jimny if it were to come to the US market. Opinions?
  19. There's Aquidneck and a guy who builds who has a boat shop next to SNUG HARBOR MARINA ask them for his phone number his been doing it for years or I would recommend trying building yourself if you got the time. Just build my first rod this year its been great.
  20. Was a good night bite every cast but 27" mostly some slots in the mix.
  21. I've fished breezy a lot and it's a hike. But for the permits, you always needed it for the fishing parking lot and 4x4 they just put the signs because people weren't following the rules and just parking where ever and it pissed a lot for the people who had valid permits and NPS got a lot of complaints and people wanted more enforcement of the area. It was a mess during the 2020 season because you would have people who had permits left without a spot to park and they pay for it and you see lots of cars without permits which if enforcement does come around it a hefty ticket. But I used to uber to the parking lot and lug my gear to the jetty and uber back in the past that's an option too.
  22. I'm looking to build my first rod that is going to be a 9' lami 50/50 but IDK where to start and what guides, reel seat, etc. and placement of each part has to be, and if there are any rules of thumbs to follow. I want to use the new concept layout for the guide placement. This is going to be a fast and simple build so I can use this rod on the jetties and light surf this fall. Thank you in advance
  23. Need some recommendations for the epoxy to use for a real seat I have some pro paste now but it's not going to be enough for the build. this is a metal reel seat. I hear people use decon 2 ton (any opinions on the use)
  24. Also when testing the rod should I be fully wrapping the guides or would tape be okay? I watch Lou's video when he did the deflection test it had just tape?
