  1. @Sardinas awesome! Do you know if it is a 70/30 split? I couldn’t find definitive answer to it. In the product discription.
  2. Hi everyone! Hope there are only tight lines out there. I am looking to add to my arsenal of rods. I have a 7ft, 8ft’ and a 12 ft surf rod. I was thinking about getting a 9’6” to get more casting distance at only a fraction of the weight. I am using a VR75 20 pound power pro, slammer 4500 30 pound power pro. Has anyone had any experiences with the okuma HD rockaway, the 9’6 looks super light https://okumafishingusa.com/products/rockaway-surf-hd-rods Prefer to use the VR more and only bring the slammer for the canal etc. Any suggestions would be welcomed!
  3. Yeah I figured people would be a little sensitive to the topic. But honestly I have good intentions with this. Even if it a charter or taking a trip down to Block Island, Canal or Montauk.
  4. Hi All! I am looking to form a club of anglers in the Boston area. A group of guys that would fish together (before and after work), grab a beer or food and also network (optional). I live in boston and work remote as well as downtown so I would like to get into the city early do a little sunrise fishing and be in the office by 9 am. If this sounds appealing to you please respond or DM me. ***Fully disclosure I am not looking to steal people’s fishing spots I have plenty and will be happy to share some with you all in person if we connect and fish together.*** If anything above interests your please reach out! Tight Lines!
  5. @FallenKell this looks awesome thanks for letting us know! Keep us in the loop if you make any more changes. I still haven’t put a fixed knife on there (I am not current wading, only surfcasting from the shore). These knives feel too big on the belt. Might have to go with a smaller one like this, with lanyard hole ready. https://www.amazon.com/Morakniv-Fixed-Blade-Pocket-Sized-Sandvik-Stainless/dp/B01J7MM5M2/ref=mp_s_a_1_13?crid=HD1N8V8SOUGW&keywords=morakniv%2Bsmall%2Bfixed%2Bknife&qid=1651682116&sprefix=%2Caps%2C1306&sr=8-13&th=1&psc=1
  6. @Adam Rojek the belt is plenty if you are looking to stay light, which I am, if you add more weight it wouldn’t hurt to clip the shoulder straps to the large surf bag you are using. This belt is going to be my go to for anything even if I am no going into the surf easy to carry lures, leader, pliers and maybe even a snack haha
  7. @FallenKell look at this cheap and ultra light set up I can clip on the belt with MOLLE. I am using this for my 7”+ topwater poppers. The water bottles are super light might wrap them up with duck tape on the outside and insert them back in.
  8. @chocodove I think I was able to find it, however im not sure I have the proper tools to fasten the other end of the PVC to the base. Do you think zip ties would work?
  9. @afterhours How did you screw the piece in there. I live in the city and dont have too many power tools is there something easy I could use? Zip ties? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. @FallenKell yeah I think I’m going to stick with this “new” set up. It’s a little annoying when it moves and bangs against the leg but I can’t spend $60 bucks on a holster
  11. @FallenKell hey thanks for all the support and help. I like this and have tried it however the swinging back and forth can get a little annoying, I see other posted some great products but they are a little expensive my boga was a cheap knockoff, can’t drop $60-100 in a case for a $15 product.
  12. I am trying to finish up my surf bag and I can’t seem to find an effect, light-weight and compact way to store the Boga/Fish Griper on my belt. I first purchased a cheap one to see if I would like it and even use it. With that said please see the first picture of the dimensions. Then I tried to find a “duty belt” attachment to hold flashlights, see picture #2. This was too large and the Boga went into it and was at risk of falling through. Currently I just the bottom of a pocket on the side of my surf bag and out it there however it is still large and a little uncomfortable against my back and arm. Please send any ideas, DIYs, duty belt alternatives and anything you can think of that can help or has helped you.

  14. @cheech are you taping the rim or the entire inside component? Pictures would be greatly appreciated if possible. Thanks!
  15. @FallenKell I love the creativity here and this looks very durable and won’t hurt the bank, thanks for this! I do want to stay light currently I have 2 rapala x rap minnow, 2 SPs, a darter, bottleneck popper, regular floratinf popper, 3-4 plastic swim baits different sizes and colors, 2 bucktails, 1 Floating twitchbait, a hi low rig, 6 pre ties leaders with swivel and power pro clips. I think this may be enough to get by and if I need more I’ll just take a trip to the car and switch something out. I do have some heavy 8” poppers that I will use a MOLLE attachment when I decide to use them. I will build a tube column just like yours for them. Anything else you could think of would be appreciated. Any suggestions on a cheap boga holder? I don’t like how high the boga sticks out from the bag.
