The water temp at the mouth of the Shinnecock Canal last Saturday was 34 degrees. I am sure the flounders are deep in the mud. However, the season should really crank up the next few weeks if this mild weather stays with us. You know spring is right around the corner because my phone is constantly ringing for updates on when rods will be ready.


Currently in process are the following:


3 Bass rods on Calstar GFX700L

2 Tog rods on Calstar GFX800L

2 Cod jigging rods on Lami CGBT961M

2 Surf Spinning rods on Lami GSB1201L

2 Fluke rods on Calstar GX7

1 Fluke rod on Cape Fear blank

1 surf spinning rod on a Lami GSB1081M

1 conventional casting rod FOR ME on a Lami IM700 flippin stick. This is a real sweetie.


I spent the evening grinding and polishing guide sets for most of the above rods.

Just finished building an Allstar 1085 and Rainshadow SW 967.


Looking at building a Rainshadow SW1087, a rod based on a Rainshadow Crank Bait blank, and a Steel Head Rod based on one of Al's mystery blanks smile.gif


Also, playing with a new Conoflex rod, Gambit 24 XT XL. Much fun!!!!!

Sageguy, the Cape Fear are excellent blanks. I have several that I fish with and am impressed with their performance. They are expensive and can been a challenge to wrap and finish because of the hexagonal shape.


KML, the GSB1081M will have a #20 Fuji seat and will have Fuji YSG SIC high-frame single foot guides.
