1000 Not a great pic but I use a 12 foot TICA with a 6500B baitrunner, 70 lb Diawa Samurai Braid, 2 feet wire to crimped 8/0circle. Most of the Browns that I have caught are cookie cutters 49 to 54inches, a couple of bigger ones at 5.5 feet or 66inches, with the circle hooks I have not needed a shock leader or with fish this size. Bluefish chunks has been our best bait. Bunker works.

 

I have never weighed any of these fish though. Does anyone know the approximate weight of say a 4 foot fish and then of a 5.5 foot fish. Just curious?

Amen Fishbucket. Thanks tpane. 6500 has 25 pounds of good drag so you might be suprised how they hold up. I may use my 525 this year and go conventional tough but it actually has less drag.
