  1. Hello All, I wanted to try to give back what knowledge that I have gathered here. I figured I could help out some of the new surf fisher(wo)mens. I have been building my surf gear setup slowly for a while now and wanted to share the information that I have learned. This information is to point people in a direction for them to start since I see a lot of "I am new what should I start with?" The information is geared more towards spinning setups. Majority of the prices are from one of our sponsor. Again it is just information I have gathered and like to share. If you would like to get the same product for cheaper check this link: If there are any question or more information you would like to know, for example: what is better product A vs product B, try this link:(Must Be Logged In For Link to Work) Thanks again SOL for always being helpful.

DON"T SHINE YOUR LIGHT DIRECTLY AT OTHER FISHERMEN. AND DO NOT SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON THE WATER YOU ARE SHARING WITH OTHER FISHERMEN. INTENSE BRIGHT LED LIGHTS WILL BLIND OTHERS AND MANY BELIEVE SPOOK FISH It's best to use use a light that has a memory setting. Meaning. If you are using the red or green light function. You don't have to cycle through the other functions to turn it off or back on to a non white light. Red and green will preserve your night vision.
