What I do for a living:

  1. Hi all, I bought a conventional setup from a garage sale 2 years ago and wondered if it's good for shark fishing at the surf. I would mostly use it to catch browns and spinners from Cape Cod or Long Island. Here's the setup: reel- Shimano Torium 20HG, Rod- Shimano TMC-E76H 7'6" Heavy power and fast action,n with 50lb braid. Obviously, I won't use it now and wait till the summer but I want to make sure that it could handle a decent shark or if I should just use it for bass and blues. Thanks!
  2. What are yalls thoughts on buying a shortened rod with a replaced tip? Plan on buying a 7'6 St Croix spinning rod for cheap with a replaced tip
  3. With the upcoming blackfish season in jersey I was wondering what size rod does everyone prefer for fishing jigs for blackfish? I typically like a rod under 7ft
  4. I am looking for a 7'-8' MH rod to pair with my stradic 5k. Specifically looking for one in that length since I have a combo for every other length. I am going to use it off piers mostly to catch spots, flounder, and sea trout but also to catch bigger fish too. It needs to be capable of throwing an ounce while still being sensitive and under the $140 price range. Any recommendations? So far my top choices are the Fenwick HMG Inshore 7'6 MH (top choice) ($103) Fenwick Elite Inshore 7'6 MH ($150) Shimano Talavera 7'6 MH ($100) Shimano GLF Series Inshore MH ($100) Tsunami Carbon Shield II 7'6 MH ($110) Daiwa TD SOL Inshore 7'6 MH ($120) Daiwa ISLA 7'6 MH ($150) not interested in the st. croix triumph or the inshore
  5. Hey yall, Im looking for a 13'-14' rod asap. Can't cast far enough at the dam I fish with my 12' rod and everyone else recommended me with a longer rod. I was looking at the "Shimano SURF GAZER 13'3" rod which goe for around $300. I would like any recommendations yall have for under $350. Thanks -13'-14' rod -Not too whippy (mod/mod-fast/fast preferred) -Lightweight (under 16-18oz) -Will be throwing 3-4 oz weights and flukes -Paring with 5500 ultegra ci4
  6. I am looking for advice on buying a conventional rod for targeting fluke in deeper water. I have a light set up, then a medium setup, but I need a rod that will allow me to fish for fluke off head boats all around Long Island and Montauk in deep ocean water. I like to jig bucktails and just regular bait #1 what should the length be? #2 what lure weight should it be rated? #3 what action and power should it be? I am open to any brand my price range for the rod alone is between $2-400
  7. Good morning, I am looking to buy a 6 foot Medium Fast 1/8 to 3/8 rod, pick up on Long Island. Thank you.
  8. I typically go bottom fishing for haddock/cod a couple times per year on a party boat. I also might go a couple times on a friend's boat. I've either rented or borrowed a setup in the past, but I want to buy my own at this point (~$250). For rod, I was originally thinking about the trevala (have experience with it and really liked it), but I've read a few posts saying it's best to get 7'6"-8' length for party boats (why? so you can fish further from boat?) which they don't make (afaik). Other options? For reel, my buddy swears by some of the Penns but I haven't done thorough research on them. I have a couple BGs and a Baitrunner, but don't have any conventional reels. For line - i assume 50lb braid with a relatively long mono leader? Thanks!
  9. I got a VSX-100 at striper day for a good deal but im not sure what rod to pair it with. Price point is 200-300 although I can go a little more. I don't know what size and spec to get for it so send me some ideas.
  10. I had a custom Batson 1418 built in October. It is 11'9" total length. Rated 4-7 and bait. It is a conventional light heaver. 30" to center of trigger reel seat. All Fuji Aconite guides. Cork tape handle. These are great rods. Any questions let me know. Unfortunately I have damaged left shoulder and can no longer fish conventional gear. My loss someone's gain. Prefer local pickup, but can make other arrangements to ship. It's been a while since I was here. Life happens. I will have other tackle up in the next few days. $300 plus shipping. Location is in NC.
  11. In between the carbon and the shadow, looking to get a 9ft medium.I think Im slightly more partial to the shadow for the grips but the carbon felt very comfortable also. Any input on them would be appreciated or other recommendations for different rods.
  12. Hi, I just ordered a Shimano Spheros SW14000XGA. Bought it to built myself the best ''value-for-money'' surf fishing combo to use on my annual 1 week trips to Cabo (that I should pursue in june 2023, last one was in 2019...) I felt like the Penn Clash 6000 I used last time wasn't fast enough at times with it's claimed 41'' per crank. I also think I'd be more comfortable with a bit more line capacity. With the 14k Spheros, I'm not sure if I'll keep using my go to 30lb braid or move up to 40lb. Don't really want to sacrifice distance. Opinions? I did not receive the Spheros yet but considering the 24oz weight and the bigger spool, I'm not sure it will pair well with the rods I already have. The longest rods I own right are: 10' 6'' Tica UEHA MH 1 - 3 oz 11' Daiwa Ardito Surf M (5 piece travel rod) 2 - 6 oz (!?) 11' Okuma Cedros CSX MH 2 - 5 oz 11' 6'' Rapala Magnum Baja Surf (4 piece travel rod) 0.75 - 4 oz 12' Tica UEHA XH 4-10 oz Below that, we move on to 10' MH Penn rods rated 1 - 5 oz I'm thinking my 11' Cedros CSX is my best bet? We'll see. Ideally, I'd want a 2 piece 12' rod that could easily rocket 2 to 3.5 oz lures way out in the surf (80 - 100 yds) and would not break when trowing the occasional 5oz lure like the 228 Magic Swimmer or 182 Stick Shads. Any suggestions are welcome. thanks!
  13. Hey, does anyone know how easily the clear coat on a rod can be refinished. One of my rods Lamiglas GSB 1321M had some of the clear coat come off over the years and I wanted to know how easily it could be repaired and what a tackle shop might run me to fix it. Thanks
  14. Has anyone given these new legend tournament inshore rods a workout? I owned 2 of the older ones and found them to be great rods but preferred the IMX pro blues. The new legends seem to be directly targeted at the imx pro blues. St. Croix has a few rods in their lineup that interest me and aren't really available in the loomis/shimano lineup. Would love to hear some input. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi everyone I am looking for these type of reel seat the only source I can find online is international any one know or have any in size #22 or #24 please let me know thanks
  16. For sale is a mint condition rod 7.6 ft spiral wrap excellent condition and daiwa lexa 400 wn hs reel only used a few times excellent condition $300 pickup queens or meet in plainview long Island
  17. Used once after snapping my rod during a blitz and needing a replacement ASAP. TFO Tactical Surf. 11’ 70/30 split. $275 no shipping. Located in NJ
  18. It's 7ft details in pictures redish brown color
  19. I was thinking that shipping would be a big problem for non-travel rods, but this one is a two piece and it looks like shipping's not terrible. It will cost $30-45 for shipping, so there's little room to negotiate on the price. I'm the first owner and used the rod only 2-3 times. Not sure if anyone's been following by posts, but that's the trend. I'm selling things that only got used 1-3 times in the last two years. It's a Century Kevlar Nor'Easter KNE1086 C. I paid $480 originally and I'm asking for $290 shipped. It's a beautiful rod, but too much rod for the type of fishing I do these days. Has minor wear and tear. Please take close look at the pictures. I'll ship it in a sturdy TD tube.
  20. I guess it's time to unload some of my unused rods. I live in Florida, so I will be listing only the travel rods here. I'm going to try to sell longer rods locally. I estimate shipping to be around $30-$40 dollars (UPS says $42 ground shipping for a random house I picked in San Diego) for a travel rod. Depending on your zip code, I may have some wiggle room on the price. Rod: Okuma Nomad Travel Surf Rod (NTS-S-1004H) I own two of these and I'm selling one. No issues with the rod and I probably fished it 4-5 times, couple times in sand. So take a close look at the pics. I didn't see any issues. Price: $120 I'm looking to trade for a light 4k/5k spinning reel to keep as a loaner. I have some trips coming up with buddies and they are flying from different places. I'll probably need to keep a couple spares, LOL.

I estimate shipping to be around $30-$40 dollars (UPS says $42 ground shipping for a random house I picked in San Diego) for a travel rod.

Rod #1: Okuma Citrix Graphite Travel Rod 7'2" Spinning (CIT-S-724M) Rod #2: Okuma Citrix Graphite Travel Rod 7'2" Casting (CIT-C-724M) I probably fished the spinning rod once. Casting wasn't used at all. I didn't take too many pics, because they were practically in new condition - Spinning rod still has the wrap, LOL. I'm selling as a pair to make it worth the shipping cost. Price: $150 I'm looking to trade with light 4k/5k spinning reel to keep as loaners. I have some trips coming up with buddies and they are flying from different places. I'll probably need to keep a couple spares, LOL.

I see something that looks like surface rust on the reel seat. Please take a close look at the pics. Price: $200 I own two Tidemaster Inshore Travel rods (One heavy and one medium heavy). Decided to sell the MH. I'm not interested in trades with this rod.
