  1. That plug is through wired! It's a Tsunami talking popper. It happened when I was changing plugs fishing the other night, removing it from a clip When I got home I started to remove the brand new hooks and while removing the tail hook the back eyelet broke off also! I've had that plug for a few years and while dissecting it I noticed wherever the wire came through the plug there was a little rust.I also noticed on a brand new plug, same make and model they put a blob of something where the wire penetrates the plug. Maybe they knew about the problem and corrected it on newer plugs. Just letting everyone know. Good thing I was not fighting a fish. It would have failed for sure and I never would have known their was a problem. Mike O
  2. ANYONE HAVE A REMEDY SO THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN? MIKE O
  3. HEY GOLDY. I WAS PROBABLY FISHING RIGHT NEXT TO YOU ON THAT VERY DAY! THAT WAS A HOT SPOT FOR ME LAST SEASON. ITS PROBABLY UNRECOGNIZABLE NOW
  4. THAT'S ACTUALLY OCEAN SIDE JOE, RIGHT BEFORE GOING INTO THE BAY. THE LAST PICTURE IS THE INFAMOUS GREEN CAN. HOPE THAT GUY STANDING THERE HAD THE SENSE TO MOVE WAY BACK ON THE BEACH! LOL MIKE O
  5. HOW IS THIS FOR CLOSE! APRIL 2009
  6. I HAVE A SALT X 6000 REEL AND WOULD LIKE TO TRY GOING BAIL LESS. BEING A LEFTY I HAVE NEVER TRIED THIS BEFORE. ARE THEIR ANY ISSUES I SHOULD BE CONCERNED WITH? OTHERWISE I'LL II WILL LEAVE IT AS IS. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY ADVICE. MIKE O
  7. JUST PURCHASED A ODM BAG. VERY WELL MADE. IT ALSO RECEIVED EXCELLENT REVIEWS . NOT TRYING TO CHANGE YOUR MIND, BUT JUST ANOTHER OPTION. FYI I HAVE NOT PUT IT TO THE TEST YET, JUST PURCHASED THIS WINTER MIKE O
  8. GLAD YOU GUYS WORKED EVERYTHING OUT. I WOULD STILL MAKE CONTACT WITH TSUNAMI. CUSTOMERS SHOULD NOT BE FIGURING OUT THEIR PROBLEMS MIKE
  9. HEY LB, I THOUGHT THAT WOULD HAVE WORKED! I'LL GIVE YOU A PHONE# AND AN E MAIL OF THE GUY WHO I WAS IN TOUCH WITH. LIKE I SAID IN MY PREVIOUS POST THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS NOT THAT GREAT AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, BUT MAYBE YOU WILL HAVE BETTER LUCK. CONTACT (JERRY) JGOMBER@FOLSOM.CORP.COM 1-800-688-3481.I'M GUESSING IF THEY GET ENOUGH COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, THEY WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.BTW THE THREADS ARE LEFTY LOOSE RIGHT TIGHT. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU GET THE SAME LINE OF BS THAT HE GAVE ME. MIKE
  10. THAT TOOL LOOKS LIKE IT WILL WORK, LET ME KNOW. MIKE
  11. PS DO NOT TRY THOSE DIGITAL VERNIER CALIPERS, THEY WON'T WORK AND AFTER TRYING WILL BE GARBAGE. MIKE
  12. I WAS TOLD BY A BIMINI BAY OUTFITTERS SALES REP THAT THEY ARE WORKING ON A BETTER TOOL! HE EVEN SCOLDED ME FOR TRYING TO TAKE "MY" NEW REEL APART SAYING "WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DISASSEMBLE A BRAND NEW DRAG SYSTEM APART" THAT IT WOULD VOID THE WARRANTY! I RESPONDED BY TELLING HIM THAT AT SOME POINT IT WOULD HAVE TO BE SERVICED. I ALSO TOLD HIM I HAVE BEEN SERVICING ALL OF MY REELS FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS.SO WHEN THE WARRANTY DOES EXPIRE YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE IF YOU ASK ME. BTW I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT A WATCH BACK TOOL WOULD WORK.I'M A PRETTY GOOD METAL WORKER AND MANAGED TO FASHION MY OWN TOOL WITH MY MILLING MACHINE AND A STRONG PIECE BAR STOCK THAT WORKS GREAT. ALSO DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH WAITING FOR THEM TO SEND YOU A BETTER TOOL FOR YOUR NEARLY $400 REEL! GOOD LUCK MIKE
  13. I REMEMBER BACK IN THE 80'S THE WATERS EDGE WAS 50-100 FT. RIGHT @ THE END OF THE TRAIL.THAT BIG TREE MARKS THE SPOT TO GO TO THE LEFT TO THE ACTUAL "RIP" FALSE HOOK WAS IN IT'S INFANCY BACK THEN AND WAS VERY SELDOM FISHED! ONE TIME I DID FISH THERE WHEN I USED TO WALK THE BEACH FROM NORTH BEACH PARKING LOT ALL THE WAY OUT TO "THE RIP" I WAS INTO A SCHOOL OF SLAMMER BLUES FOR ALMOST 4 HOURS AND I WAS ALL BY MYSELF! NIGHT FISHING WAS FREE BACK THEN. ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS CHECK IN @ THE RANGER STATION THAT USE TO BE RIGHT PAST LOT C. THEY GAVE YOU A PIECE OF PAPER THAT YOU PUT INSIDE YOUR WINDSHIELD AND SENT YOU ON YOUR WAY. THAT BEACH IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO. SORRY FOR ALL THE MEMORY LANE BS. MIKE
  14. DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO REMOVE THE DRAG WASHER ASSEMBLY FROM A SALTX 6000 REEL. THE RETAINER THAT HOLDS IT ON IS VERY DIFFICULT TO MOVE WITH TH PLASTIC TOOL SUPPLIED WITH THE REEL.
