  1. I'm going to do some fishing from shore on the pacific coast of costa rica for a few weeks and was wondering if I could get some suggestions on what tackle would be best since I'm a complete newbee to fishing from shore. I've read a lot of the existing threads and am currently thinking about the following set up: - Okuma Nomad Travel Surf Rod NTS-S-1004MH Other options are the Okuma Nomad Travel Surf Rod NTS-S-904M or the St. Croix Triumph Surf Travel Rod TSRS90M4 or St. Croix Triumph Surf Travel Rod TSRS100M4. Which of these is best suited? Is the 1004MH overpowered for the job? Or are the others underpowered? - Penn Spinfisher VI 5500 Does this reel balance well with the above mentioned rods? Too smal or big? Is it suitable for long casts from shore? - Power Pro Spectra Fiber Braided Fishing Line 30lbs for mainline Does this choice of main line balance well with the rod and reel? - Seaguar Blue Label Fluorocarbon Leader 40lbs for short leader - Spro Power Swivel 130lbs to attach leader to mainline - Tactical Anger's Power Clips 125lbs to attach lure to leader Is this set up well balanced? Am I missing anything? Which lures are recommended? Also how would I go about setting up a live bait rig and what tackle would I need for it? Any suggestions very welcome. Thanks in advance!
  2. "if I am tying knotted leaders I use Ande clear mono. Works great cheap and turns over flies. I don't use floro very often. When I do like for roosters it is usually adding 2.5' piece of 20 or 25 pound to Rio knotless 10' tapered leader. Albie fishing I use it to add on to mono leaders when the leader gets too short --but I try to avoid knotted leaders albie fishing. The fish do not care --my hands do. On a decent day you might leader up 20 albies, your hands are wet and you have cuts in your hands even with gloves - the fish makes a surge and a knot goes through the cut ---nope." Ah HA! Do I understand that roosters can be line shy?
