  1. I just picked up a lightly used Van Staal VSX 200 from a friend, he has used in at Montauk and he has caught many 20lb stripers with it. I went to fish it this morning and on my lure retrieve I noticed that it quite loud and it sounds like something is grinding. Id appreciate some feedback. Sincerely, Sandesh Sukhdeo
  2. Does anybody have experience with IRT reels? I would like to know if they are sealed ? Sincerely, Sandesh Sukhdeo
  3. Lifetime freshwater fisherman here, but due to where I grew up, I had very little experience salt water fishing. The past few summers we have vacationed on the Cape in Dennis, near Chapin Memorial beach. The tide goes out quite a bit there, and I'd love to fish while the wife sunbathes. I cannot lay around all day. I'm pretty certain they catch striper there regularly. 3 questions for this beginner: 1. Can anyone suggest good starter equipment? It would get used a few times a year, so it doesn't have to be top end. 2. Specific bait or techniques? Do I cast bait and let it set, or is lure fishing a better bet? 3. Is shore fishing during the day a real option, I keep hearing people talk about night fishing for striper there. For what it's worth, any tips given will help this guy AND his 12 year old son who just love to fish. So thank you!
  4. So I am about to go to Hong Kong in less then 24 hours. I was wondering if I should spend some time fishing there. I will be with the wife and I have decided that this time, I am not going to bother for this 3 night trip considering that I am taking my wife to Disney land there. So I want to open this dialog for places in other countries where people might have fished. Example, I live in Cebu, Philippines now and I can tell you about my fishing experience. I can tell you what you need to bring or even offer suggestions on types of fishing there are here. For now, fishing locals that catch fish do not use traditional US fishing gear. Local hooks here do not even have eyelets. You can find some fishing gear here but it is cheap stuff good for one to three seasons max. Now if you want a unique fishing experience, bring some wet shoes that are good for walking on sharp rocks and some mud. Be ready to get wet and walk in the sea at night. You get a head lamp and a over sized fish tank net and during low tide, go catch crabs/shrimp/and some fish! You go out for around 3 hours and it is vary fun. The problem with here in cebu is that there are a lot of trash in the water and if you want to catch larger fish, you must book a boat! I am about to go out on a boat and take my first fishing trip late this month. So I will have a better idea of fishing here then! Give me you info! Where have you fished?
