RussB posted a topic in General Buy/Sell/Trade ForumInterested in picking up all-purpose rigs I can wield from the kayak to catch schoolie sized stripers, weakfish, and fluke with. I'd also be using these in land-based backwater situations. I'm a spinning reel guy, but only because that's what I use all the time. I wouldn't rule out a conventional setup. I'm in South Jersey but can help with shipping for non-local deals. I'm thinking of a setup that can throw light (3/8 oz.) bucktails and jigs, but also throw up to, I don't know 1+ oz. Something that would take 15-20 lb. braid nicely, have enough feel to work the light bucktail for fluke while having enough backbone to handle the occasional nice-sized bass. I'd consider the right 8' setup or down to 6'6". I don't need anything crazy nice/expensive and I'm not terribly picky. I have kids that like to fish and we need general purpose gear, so I'm looking for value. A decent, lasting setup at a decent price, or a known cheap but properly functioning setup at a cheap price.
Interested in some feedback pre-season, I switched from kayak to a modified canoe way back in 1998. interested in what benefits most people see to favor a kayak. I modified an old Indian river lightweight fiberglass canoe with a spring creek pontoon system. I also use an long kayak paddle and face opposite direction when alone. originally switched for two person use and stand up fishing.
