  1. I am just beginning to get into surf fishing and I’m looking to purchase a rod and a reel. Any suggestions on an affordable set up for a rod, reel, line and etc.? What brands are best for rod and reels? Looking to spend less than $200 for everything. Thanks!
  2. 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.

  6. 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.
  7. I just jumped on the baitcasting bandwagon. I ordered a LEXA HD 400 7.1:1. I haven't used a baitcaster in a looong time, but WTH, right? I do most of my fishing on jetties, almost never use bait and most stuff I throw is under 3oz. like everyone else. I'm looking for a plugging/BT/Tins rod under $200 to learn with that will be able to get distance and handle the load. Has to be 2 piece. Has to be under $200. Is anyone plugging and distance casting with these reels? Also, what pound test.should I be spooling the reel with, I'm also getting a boat rod to maybe fish for tuna.
  8. Hello all! Thanks in advance for the help. I came upon what I believe is a handmade surfcasting rod, but I cant find any information on the maker. It appears to be well made. The maker is Beach and Bay Tackle, Inc. It has a 617 area code, but when I call the number on the rod, it is out of service. And I can't find any business info on the internet. Has anyone heard of this maker, or know the value? It is a 10' rod.
  9. So I fish a 10'6" legend 1-6oz and an avid 8' 3/4-3. I feel like the 10'6" has too much backbone for daily fishing.. I like it, but not in love with it. I'm in search for a 9'6" rod up to 4oz. My buddy swears by ODM Frontier 9'6", i'm curious what others would chose... I was leading towards tsunami Airwave Elite.. Bad ****** for the money, but I'm open to any.. It's coming into show season in the next two months so the purchase will be made then. Thanks in advance..

  12. Hello folks, This may be an odd question and not one that I had expected to be asking. My brother was the angler in the family, and an avid one at that. Sadly, he passed away unexpectedly this summer and I'm now face with selling many of his belongs, much of which is outdoor gear, fishing rods and tackle etc. The extent of my fishing knowledge extends to what Dennis taught me. I have 5 rods and a couple of reels I need some advice on. I have 3 new Sage rods, in 2 St. Croix rods all in tubes and the St. Croix in Travel Tubes, that I I'd like to sell and donate the funds to charity in his name but have no idea what to ask for these rods. Sage rods are: 2 each Model XP 490-4 Graphite IIIe Line 4 9' 0" ft. 1 each Model XP 990-4 Graphite IIIe Line 9 9' 0" ft. 1 St. Croix TideMaster Model TS70MF3 (All New and have been in storage for some time.) 1 St. Croix Ben Doer Surf System SS8m 2pc Graphite Rod with a PENN SS 055 reel on this. (Used by in excellent condition rod and reel w/tube). I apologize for the long message but wanted to give as much information as possible and hope that someone can do the same. Thanks in advance for any help. Maybe I'll keep one for myself and learn how to surf fish in Dennis' honor. Thanks all.

  14. Hi, I'm from Manzanillo, Mexico. I would like to know if anyone knows the Larsen or Kalsvik brand, since they are promoted in my country as being made in the USA by a company located in Miami Florida, I have researched and can not find any of the brand and company. Will it be a farce? I hope you can help me. Saludos amigos!

  16. Has anybody used the St Croix musky spinning rod? If so how well can it throw lures over 4 ounces? How stiff is it?
  17. Hi, this is my first post and I need a new rod. I was thinking about the new Tsunami Slow Pitch 7ft XH, wanted to know if anyone else used this rod (pros and cons). Or if anyone has any other recommendation. I’ll be using it for stripers/blues (deadsticking and jigging) and some deep ocean fluke jigging from time to time. Thanks
  18. I have a shop in my small coastal community that has hundreds of vintage rods to search thru. I saw a video of Conolon Rods being built at a factory. I am using Mitchell reels and would like to match the reels with rods. I am wondering if anyone knows how long they made Conolon rods. I want to find ones that will work in the surf. Also what colors they were made in so they may be easier to find.
  19. Hi, I wanted to buy my husband a fishing rod for Christmas but am at a loss as to what to get. We live in Annapolis and he fishes off his kayak and boat in Black Walnut Creek and the Chesapeake Bay. What type of rod should I get him? I tried looking online but all the fishing jargon is confusing to me. I have no idea what types of fish he is catching or what rod is best for the Bay. I saw a rod that was said to be one of the best out there, the Fitzgerald Versa. Would you recommend this rod or a different rod? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  20. Hi all. Looking to up my game and get 2 new casting setups that can throw at least 8oz (maybe up to 10) for Assateague. Currently using 11ft 2-6oz Penn Battalion setups but had trouble holding bottom last time. I cant always pick best weather when I get a chance off to head down from Baltimore. Looking to spend medium to decent money... maybe 600 total but dont hold back on more $ recommendations. Prefer options readily available somewhere and on short notice (maybe even buy by Friday or Sat. Rods- any recommendations on 11, 12, or 13fters? Glass or graphite? Need to be 2 piece cus I roll in a wrangler tj. Reels- im new to conventional casting so what reel is best? Considering 2 Abu Blue Yonder 7500s cus the mag cast control. Anything cheeper that still has mag control and good? I have heard Mono is prob best for conventional. 20 or 25lb? Colors like hi-vis Green KastKing ok? I usually use a 50lb big game shock leader for my 6oz setups... do I need to go to 80 or 100lb for throwing 8 or 10ozs? Lastly I am also planning on getting 4 long beach spikes... the ones that hold reel at chest level. Any instructions for self making or a guy that makes and sells them? Cheers Guys!

  24. So I've been wanting to get into Saltwater fishing for a while now, and I've finally decided go for it. I live in Massachusetts so I'll be fishing from jetties, piers, and from shore. Also I'll be fishing around the Boston area and down near Cape Cod. The fish I'll be targeting will primarily be Striped Bass, Blue Fish, and Black Sea Bass. Currently I'm eyeing the 7,6 MH St. Croix Tidemaster Inshore Spinning Rod paired with a PENN Spinfisher V Spinning Reel. My budget is $350-$400 for both the rod and reel. So what's a good rod/reel for my criteria? Also what rod length should I go for I was thinking of going for 7,6 but having it fit in the car is a concern. Lastly what line should I get? I'm currently thinking of getting 20 pound braid but I'm worried it won't be enough for striper and blue fish.
