  1. I am selling a brand new never been worn set of Korker Terror Ridge size 12 with the Felt and Rubber Soles. 160 Plus shipping.
  2. You call people jerkoffs after they tell you exactly what type of conditions to expect? I hope you do stick to Quonnie with the rest of the tourists and leave everyone else alone.
  3. As I continue to learn the hobby of fishing for stripers one thing still confuses me and that is a slow retrieve at night. I have read countless threads that will say something along the lines of "reel slow, then slow it down even more." Does anyone have a clip or good way to illustrate how slow is a slow retrieve at night? When I attempt to reel super slow at night, I don't always feel the plug working, and often feel like I lose contact with the lure. Any insight?
  4. Any taller guys have suggestions on surf tops ? I’m 6 foot 5 with long arms. I was looking at guy Cotten and stormr but they don’t seem to have a tall size. What are the taller guys using to stay dry ?
  5. How are the arm lengths ? For reference I wear a 36 inch length pant but my arms are a bit longer then normal for my height. I always run into sleeves not being long enough.
  6. I’ve used the traditional korker sandals with success on slippery jetties. Are the standard grip stud soles that come with something like the korker terror ridge enough for some of the jetties in the north east ? Or would it make sense to screw in some extra studs into the swappable soles ?
  7. BG is the answer.
  8. Thanks for clarifying, which option would you say is best for jetties and slick rock ? I have a set of kold kutters from the past. Trying to figure out if I will need to add them to any of these soles, my only experience has been with the sandal type korkers.
  9. Are you adding those studs to the soles ? What am I looking at here ?
  10. I would definitely wear at least the studs, my question is are the standard studded soles that come with the new korkers enough for jetties or would i need to add some studs to be safe.
  11. Unfortunately not.
  12. I am looking to sell my size 13 Simms FreeSalt Boots and set of Korkers. I got these this year, I used these for roughly 5 trips. I have found the type of fishing I am doing I don't end up using these too much and its time to get rid of them. I have the bag of extra studs as well I can throw in if interested. $200.00 for everything, I live in CT but can ship if you pay for shipping.
  13. If anything they might be slightly larger. I wear a 13 in sneakers and other shoes. I wear these with neoprene socks or waders and they fit comfortably.
  14. I appreciate all the replies. I guess what still gets me is every “YouTuber” I watch seems to either crank the hell out of the reel or reel moderately fast. I’ve yet to ever see one reeling as slow as people are describing on here.
  15. I appreciate all the responses. I have some new techniques to try this week. I definitely think I’ve been reeling too fast after some of these responses.
  16. A few slot fish at a little known outflow but little to no luck out front.
  17. Out of curiosity what did you go with instead? It looks like the new VSX doesn't have a right hand retrieve option and I don't really want to spend the cash on a ZBass.
  18. I recently purchased a Salt X 6000. I am a lefty so I retrieve with my right hand, without thinking I converted the reel to bail less last night. Just to be sure, there is no way to reverse either the line roller bracket or anything on the reel to make this work to pick up the line with my left hand? I have a feeling I am going to have to swap it back tonight.
  19. After spending some time searching around I finally found a saragosa 10000. I ordered a 10000swapg. What I received is a 10000pg. I’m having trouble finding info online about what the difference is. Any ideas ?
  20. Wts 2019 model Saragossa 6000sw. This reel saw moderate use over a season. There are a few minor nicks and scratches from normal use. I am looking to upgrade to a larger reel and no longer need this reel. 180 or best offer.
  21. I feel as though I have too many locations I bounce between on a weekly basis. I want to narrow down my list of locations to 3 or 4 in order to better learn them. What location type would you focus on when going after cows?
  22. As a relative new comer to the hobby, I have found some youtubers (Skinner, Tackle Advisor, S Journal) to be an amazing resource. I will say that the vlogging YouTube bro style videos that unfortunately seem to makeup the rest are insufferable.
  23. This past week seems far less weedy out front I have noticed.
