  1. Hello! I’m looking to learn more about surf fishing. I have some experience with surf fishing where I would tag along with a friend of mine when he sets out to fish at the beach out on Long Island, NY. Although I have a pretty good sense on casting out and reeling in, I know that there is much more to fishing than just casting and reeling. I am seeking for more knowledge when it comes to rods, reels, lines, lures and etc. Any advice, tips, techniques and guidance for a beginner wanting to become good at surf fishing is appreciated.
  2. penn conflict 11 7000 new in box $150 ship daiwa bg 5000 new in box $110 ship any form of payment
  3. Picked up a Star Rod Plasma II the split grip one the Rod rating is 6-14lb 7ft. What reel would you put in it and why? Currently fishing in Florida and just looking at my options! Your opinions are important! Its a spinning rod!
  4. Looking for a new reel I'm interested in the penn slammer 3. Or the saragusa. 8k. PLEASE send me pictures of what you got thank you
  5. Ok I need guidance, just moved to Long Island and love fishing. I never realized how much goes into the sport. I have a lot to learn. The last two seasons i’ve Been surf fishing but with not much luck( yes, i’m a bait soaker). I have tried some lures ( buck tails, diamond jig, spoons) out a few times but since I didn’t know what I was doing I kinda gave up. I have yet to catch a fish on a lure. I would like to be able to learn the lures and someday catch a damn fish. I have been to the trusty YouTube watched a few videos in hopes that things would change this year. Watched vids on how to tie different rigs, on how to read the beach which I still don’t know if I’m doing right. My gear so far: 10’ st croix mojo surf paired with penn battle 6000 12’ penn rod with penn fierce 2 live liner 8000 the 6000 has 40lb braid I believe the 8000 has 50lbs mono i think both rods are medium to heavy what the hell do I need to do other than “ get out and fish more”? More YouTube I guess any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
  6. Have a Lami tri flex 7030 that I use for bottom fishing and currently have a penn fathom 15 on it which I like but the reel is slightly to wide for my liking. I'm looking to take the jump into the higher tier of star drag reels but I'm really looking for one that has a smaller profile specifically having a narrower spool. Does anyone have experience fishing one of the smaller Daiwa saltigas, Shimano trinidads/ocea jiggers or Accurate Terns on a Lami triflex 7030 and can let me know what they think. Thanks in advance.
  7. I'm a complete newbie. So far I have only been using trout gear I had on hand. I can't jump in at the $300+ rig level and so I am shopping around for modest setups. Durability and all that is a top concern for me since I am new and will probably abuse things more than an experienced angler would. My question is this... do you really think that a $200 reel lasts 4 times longer than a $50 reel, or whatever other math and multipliers you can think of? Why not get $30-$50 reels and consider them kind of disposable?
  8. Specifically after rinsing your reel off. I know you should use reel oil for the best results, but has anyone had any experience with WD 40 on reels for rust prevention etc?
  9. Has anyone had a chance to check out the Tsunami Forged 8? It looks like it has some decent specs and was wondering if anyone on here has any experience fishing the bigger sizes which I believe are the 10 & 12? The price on the reel also seems to be very reasonable, I believe it's around $170 which is less then other reels in it's class just based on its specs.
  10. Hello! I'm wondering if anyone could suggest some intermediate saltwater spinning reels to be paired up with my Ugly Stik elite spinning rod, its a 7 ft, medium power, 2 piece. The fish i'll mainly be targeting are Striped bass, Bluefish and Fluke. Reel sizes I'm looking for are 3000-4500 but if you have a size suggestion go ahead and tell me about it! I'm looking to spend 100$ or less, but if I have to i'll spend more in the name of fishing! ANY suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!
  11. Reel repair gurus I need your help. So just before heading out to fish this evening, I checked my Calcutta 300 D, all was well, functioned as it should have. Fast forward 25 minutes and on the first cast the spool won't turn. The thumb bar clicks up when the handle is turned, but the gear isn't engaging the spool. Got home and gave it a quick look, but can't see anything obvious that would cause the issue. This is the second time it's happened in less than a year, sent it out to Shimano for repairs last time. Before I box it up and drop the $50 for service, is there anything that I might be able to do here to get me back in business? Thanks.
  12. I have the opportunity to pick up a Penn Slammer 3 for a pretty good price. I've fished Shimano / VS forever. Maybe you guys can help. What are your thoughts about this reel? How does it fish compared to a Saragosa? Any pros / cons? Pairing this with my Lami 1081L --- Should I buy the 3500, 4500, 5500? I was thinking 4500. Thanks for the help!
  13. I have an old penn 104 reel and rod that I dug up from my teen years. I broke it down and gave her some TLC and is working great again so i threw on some left over 30 lb power pro and im going to make it the loaner rod for friends who come out with me. Most likely people who don't fish often/ ever and don't have their own gear. My question is, should I use the PP as backing and add mono on top? or just splice in more PP? I was thinking 15 lb mono. I got roughly 100 yards PP on and it should fit another 100 or so yards 15# mono. Or should i go up/ down with the mono? I'll be using a 50 lb fluro leader. I know PP benefit is its thinner compared to mono of same strength ( 1/4 diameter or something if i remember correctly) so with backing i get more line cap as long as i dropped. Primarily fishing for bass and blues inshore, both boats and from rocks around Boston/ Narraganset bay but im starting to get into albie this season with my inshore spinning setup (stradic 5k on 7' 3/8-2 oz), so i'd some flexibility. Primarily throw plugs/ softbaits. If im trolling ill use my convention setups so not for this thread. Thanks all
  14. Looking to get my kids into fishing and I’m looking for 3 reels. Penn 4-5 hundred series shimano baitrunner 3500b-4500b im south of Boston. As for rods, I’ll pair them up with ugly sticks for the abuse.
  15. Does anyone here own an Einarsson and fish it in the salt? Thanks.
  16. Hi, I know a lot of folks use line weighted over what their rod is rated, and I'd like to try putting 9 on a cheap 8 weight rod to see if it improves cast. But what about the reel? I have a reddiington behemoth 7/8. What is the impact on putting a heavier weight on the reel? Thanks.
  17. Im just wondering if the stradic sw is going to be sold in the U.S. I saw scoobydoos video on it and you can get them on eBay but i just want to know the status on them and if its worth the hassle of getting one

  23. Does anyone know of any sealed fishing reals besides the van staal that would be affordable for surfcasting?
  24. Testing the waters here, looking for the mate to the one I have..... moving the reel from surf rod to boat rod sucks... :-)
  25. Hey guys, this cold snap got me thinking about how and what to store inside during the winter. I moved into a place with a garage last year so everything has been stored out there... I have significantly increased my gear this year and had always stored stuff inside before. I have close to zero room inside unfortunately so I only want to bring in the necessary stuff. What is recommended to not keep in an unheated garage? Are reels affected? Do rods become brittle? What about plastic swimmers and gulp baits? I live in MD so we are not talking crazy sub zero negative temps. Much obliged.
