  1. Rod building

    I am looking to build a saltwater medium action, composite (graphite/glass mix), for line 8-17lb, 8’ length, throwing 1-2.5oz. What are your suggestions. I would be using it to catch stripers, bonito, tautog.
  2. Remember that they are just a stupid fish, and they will eat a hook with padding from a box spring... Not much action from the material, but holds a good profile, only takes a few minutes to tie, and can be colored to match any bait around! Materials consist of sidewall padding from a box spring, lead wire, WTP eyes, and sharpies. Let's see some more flies with unconventional materials.
  3. These are the very hard to find Yozuri L-Jack 18 Gram in purple sand eel. Never available in US in this color and they feature real eyes which the US version didn't have (the whole L-Jack metal jig series was discontinued 15+ years ago). These were once the gold standard albie jigs (along with the Marias), they will outcast any Epoxy jig and don't have that delicate plastic coat. They retailed for $8.99 way back when, I'm selling them for $8 each or 3 for $21 shipped paypal or M.O.
  4. 9 discontinued Yo-Zuri Livebait minnow jigs. Small ones are 2 3/4" 5/8oz, large ones are 3 3/8" 1oz. $50 shipped, Paypal preferred. Will split into lots of three tomorrow if they don't sell today. Albies are on their way!
  5. 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
  6. Water's pleasantly warm for bathing, I was surprised by how completely comfortable I was in shorts while wading this AM at Cupsogue. Nothing biting save greenhead flies (ow). .... That said, anyone hear of any scombrid fish yet?
