  1. Hello, Looking for two Phenix Titan Slow Pitch jigging rods, one casting (model TJX-68MH), one spinning (TJX-S68M), new or used. Please provide price including shipping to 01803, or can meetup within reasonable distance around metro MA area. PayPal ready. Thanks!
  2. Was looking at the Shimano torium pga reels for diamond jigging and bottom fishing. I like how it has the large power handle and a Powerful gear ratio at 4.6.1 also it's got 33lbs of drag. Looks very promising. Any one use these reels and have any experience with them? I plan to get the 16 and put 65lb J braid on it and pair it up with a Okuma Cedros Mh or H 6 foot 6 jigging rod.
  3. Batson Rainshadow 1209. Built by CMS Tackle to their standard specs. In great shape, fully functional. The rod is about 5 years old, used for only a couple seasons for jigging in the Ditch. Built with fuji k-guides, Fuji reel seat, cork on handles. $275 Cash and Pick-up only. Willing to meet if location is convenient for me.
  4. Who’s ready for some shallow water blackfish jigging? Brand new Daiwa Certate LT 3000-XH spooled with 15lb jbraid and brand new Daiwa Rcs Eva power mob added (slightly scuffed getting the cap off). Original knob and box included. $400 shipped
  5. So I recently made a purchase admittedly without doing all the research I should have. I bought a Jigging World Nexus and Quantum Accurist S3 PT lefty. From what I now realize the rotation of the guides should be to the opposite side of the reel handle. I'm having difficulty finding this rod wrapped in the opposite direction. My dilemma is if having both the guide and handle to the same side is defeating the purpose of having a spiral wrapped rod and if I should make a different rod choice.
  6. So to expand my fishing knowledge base, I'm thinking of trying some jigging from my kayak on some of my future ocean, and bay trips. Now I have plenty of tackle for the version of jigging we do for Chesapeake Bay stripers, but I'm looking for advice for metal jigs to use out on the ocean over wrecks, reefs, etc. I'm not looking to break the bank, but any recs on lures in the $10-15$ price range weighing 1-4 oz max would be helpful. I kind of like the nomad line, has anyone used those? I don't think I'll be venturing into slow pitch and very technique heavy jigging, but I'm just trying to get the general technique from youtube university, and could use some lure recs, as well as tips like "replace the assist hooks since they're weak," etc. Also, does anyone routinely use heavy bucktails or jigheads, and big plastic paddletails (like eliasv), and prefer them to the metal jigs? I would probably be jigging with either a shimano 4000 or 5000 equivalent size reel, or my 4500b baitrunner, so something that has around 20lbs drag at most with around 200-300 yards of 30-40lb line, nothing major like a big Spheros or Saragosa. I don't really have the funds for a legit jigging specific rod and reel, but am looking to adapt my existing tackle as well as I can. Thank you everyone!

  8. I’ve been on two offshore sea bass trips this’s year, armed with my new jigging world black widow 150 rod and my new Saragosa 6000 and I’ve done no bait fishing, only jigging. I’ve used only 8 and 6 ounce hammered diamond jigs, both with a 5/0 vmc siwash buck tail. No teaser, no squid strip. Just the jig. Ive casted out and snapped it back as well as brought it back gently, as if I were tending a sinker. Ive gently wiggled it just above the bottom. Ive done short snaps just above the bottom, letting it flutter down, with just enough contact to detect a strike. And l have squidded. Everything worked. I really had a blast catching tons of sea bass, almost non-stop on both trips. And even some porgies. Here’s my question: Almost all all the fish I caught were less than keeper size or just barely keeper size. No big fish. There wasn’t tons of big fish coming up on either trip, but I would say my jig caught fish were definitely not “larger on average” like I was led to believe by using a jig. Now I didn’t get a lot of really small fish like bait guys did, but the bait guys on both sides of me would get the occasional 16 or 17 inch fish but I never did. Is there something I should be doing a little different to get a “bigger fish on average than the bait guys” like I read like twenty times on the internet? Is it sort of an overstatement that jigs will produce bigger fish than bait??? -Paul p.s. This is my first post. I appreciate all of you who have contributed to this and other forums, I’ve spent countless hours pouring over them.
  9. Relatively new to the surf and am looking for a heavy-action conventional rod for chunking in the surf. Preferably 10-foot plus and 10oz rated, but open to investigate. Looking for a used rod, but certainly prefer high-quality. Located in Mass. but can pay for shipping. Excited to give this a try.

  12. Anyone have a preference for high or low tide at the canal? I agree that there are some spots that fish great on a West tide and not so great on East and vice versa but from my experience I have much better luck during low. What are your thoughts? - Al
  13. I have two barely used custom spiral wrapped rods by Jigging World. Used the 350g stick 3 times, twice for tuna and once for cod. Used the Micro once jigging sea bass. Both work well, but I find I am just not a fan of spiral wrap rods. Here's a chance to steal them. JW Ghost Hunter Slow Pitch 350g - 5'6" rated for up to 30-lbs. drag for tuna, tile and other large critters. Retails for $299. Will sell for $150. JW Ghost Hunter Slow Pitch Micro Jigging Rod 100g - 6'5". Retails for $279. Will sell for $125. Both have indestructible black blanks, split but grips, Fuji seats and guides wrapped in black with gold trim and highlights. Can be seen on Jigging World website. Located in New Jersey. (*Gary, we ask folks to reserve PMs until the price has been negotiated. Thanks - TimS)
  14. Looking to buy a lot of 5 oz Jig heads. Preferably rounded heads but most 5 oz heads will work. New or used. Will be for use at the Cape Cod Canal. - Al
  15. Had a fun night of fishing last night. Caught around 10 bass with almost half being keepers. Also, ran into some blues at the same spot I was at. Nothing of great size but still fun. Will prob hit some beaches and the Ditch this weekend. Who's heading out to do some fishing this weekend?! - Al
  16. What's your favorite canal jig?
  17. Shimano Trevala tvs66-mh2- almost new, used maybe twice. Two piece for ease of travel, joins at the top of the foregrip for one piece action. The perfect rod for our inshore/light offshore waters. A blast in stripers and blues, probably the best diamond jigging rod you'll find. $80 Stingo Fish G Rod- 5'6" vertical jigging rod rated for 200g (7oz) jigs, but it fishes 250g (~9oz) jigs beautifully. Used a handful of times on amberjack in North Carolina. Also a two piece, also connects at top of foregrip. These rods are unbreakable and discontinued. Removable rubber gimbal cap. Excellent condition. $100 OTI OceanXtreme 40/60 popping rod- 7'6", two piece butt join rod rated for plugs up to 125g (~4.4oz) This rod is perfect for our offshore/nearshore topwater opportunities. I've caught smaller tuna to about 20lbs or so, mahi, and some amberjack in NC on it, but I'm confident that it could handle tuna to 150lbs or so. It would actually make a great heavy jetty/bridge rod, as its length and action would allow you to cast big plugs a long way while not being too long and cumbersome, and you could really put the screws to a fish in big current. Has one small scratch in the epoxy by the stripper guide from a treble hook during a bumpy ride (pictured), but that's it. $200 If you buy all three and get yourself outfitted for all of your NY offshore/inshore jigging and popping adventures, I'll let em go for $360. Will meet up anywhere within reason from RVC
  18. Im new to jigging and have bought myself a pile of knife jigs to get started. I figured i would build my own assist hooks since that can make em a bit cheaper and i like to play around with gear in the cold months. So first question, i bought a pile of VMC octopus live bait hooks. They have a slightly longer shank than some of the others i've seen used on assists, but the difference is minimal and the price on these is unbeatable. Anyone see a functional difference and/or problems with using them in this application? My next question has to do with hook size. I've read online that the hook width should be greater than the body of the jig. Here are two 100 gram knife jigs (green one is Hogy, the pink one is black dog) with 6/0 VMC's which are just barely wider. Here are the same jigs with 8/0 VMC's which are fairly wider than the jig bodies. Are these a better size than the 6/0's (or rather, are they the perfect size?) By the way I'll be using them to target Stripers and Blues down here on the Chesapeake. All inshore...
  19. Very lightly used Black Hole Cape Cod Special 350g jigging rod. Went on about 3 or 4 trips. Asking $325 shipped. $300 picked-up in Queens, NY. Will accept Cash, Paypal (with additional fee), Venmo or Chase QuickPay. Black Hole CCS 350g Rod: Good for Tuna up to 100~200lb, but it can handle heavier Tuna if needed.Also great for Amberjack for any size.Recommended for 20~25lb drag though it can take much heavier drag.
  20. Hi, I just bought a new rod- Major craft solpara SPS-962MH (20-50g). And I need a new reel which would be used for shore jigging of bonito, small tuna and amberjacks. I would put 20lb Pe braid on the reel. So far I've found 4 competitors: Shimano Exage 4000FD, oKuma Ceymar 55, oKuma Azores 55s and Sakura Silver Code 4005. The oKuma Azores is a bit higher in price than the exage and sakura, but is it worth it ? Which one of these is the best bang for the buck? Silver Code Gear ratio 5:1 Retrieve rate: 74cm Drag: 5kg Bearings: 4+1 Weight: 305g Price: €70 Azores Gear ratio 5.8:1 Retrieve rate: 99cm Drag: 13kg Bearings: 6+1 Weight: 526g Price: €89 Exage Gear ratio: 5.2:1 Retrieve rate: 82cm Drag: 7kg Bearings: 4+1 Weight: 320g Price: €71 Ceymar Gear ratio: 4.5:1 Retrieve rate: 76cm Drag: 8kg Bearings: 7+1 Weight: 392g Price: €53 @Alonsh87
  21. Hi, im getting started shore jigging and I don't have a rod good enough (i believe) for it. Can you give me some recommendations for shore jigging rods which aren't expensive (sub $100). And can you tell me what characteristics do I need to look for when buying a shore jigging rod. I currently have 3 rods which i think arent good for SJ Rod 1: Shimano catana dx spinning 2.1m MH 14-40g Rod 2: Ugly Stik gx2 2.1m M 1/8-5/8 oz 6-15lb line rated Rod 3: Shimano TC-II 300 3m 50-100g, thats all the info i got on that one I think they wont be good enough because those 2 are quite short and all are bendy, not stiff Help please
