Recently got back into fishing and a good friend gave me an old Shimano Triton TLD 10 NIB. I’ve just started my journey as a NY surfcaster and I’ve always been a spinning reel guy but I am eager to give conventional a try. Not sure what year this reel is from but probably late 80s-or early 90s. Manufacturer’s manual describes it as lever drag reel for live bait, casting and light trolling. I’d love to try and give all of them a shot. Ideally I’d like to use this reel for a party boat/charter setup but not sure if that’s a good idea. I am open to all suggestions. I’ll be targeting fish in the Northeast. Tell me all about this reel because there’s very little information about this reel online. And if it’s not too much trouble, I’d love suggestions for rods for the scenarios like live bait, light trolling or casting from shore or boat. Since this is my first conventional setup I’d prefer to keep rods under $100. Thanks SOL
LuPork posted a topic in Main ForumHello All, I am trying to decide which Shimano Baitrunner would be best for chunking bait for stripers on Long Island. I already have the 6500A and 6500 Triton Sea-Spin. Rod is 10ft Penn Prevail 1-5oz. If I choose a different model I would sell the 6500A and Triton to offset the cost. I have a Penn Battle II 5500 I use for plugging so this question is specific to a bait setup. 6500Triton Sea-Spin (already owned, made in Japan, graphite/plastic spool) 6500A (already owned, made in Malaysia, aluminum spool) 6000OC (rumors the newer stuff isn't as durable) 6500B (less durable than Triton/A?) Don't use a Baitrunner for bait-fishing surf on Long Island (why not?) Also, does made in Japan matter enough to put the Triton ahead of other models? Thanks all!
