Perfect Albie set up from shore

Rate this topic

47 posts in this topic

A luxe rod, perhaps the Weapon Jr. (?) that @Jim DE is very keen on, and a long-cast spinner with light braid and a fluorocarbon leader. Your payloads will be mostly metal, within a half ounce size on either side of one ounce.

Depends on what shore you're fishing from. I have two shore setups. One for the beach and one for the jetty. For the beach I use an ODM DNA back bay 7'6" with a Stradic 3000. I also use this setup for the boat. From the jetty I wanted something with a long reach, good back bone and wouldn't break the bank. I went with a Tsunami AWE 9'6" and a Penn spinfisher 4500. I looked at a lot of reels and that one is lightweight with a fast retrieve.

Rod = Shimano Dialuna S100MH (10’0” rated to 2oz)

Reel = Shimano Vanquish C5000XG (6.2:1) w/20# Sufix 832

 

Combo weighs 14.5oz.
It throws 1-1.5oz far, very very FAR!

And has no problem with hard tails…

Basically fishing the exact same setups 

 

Stradics are sweet but I found myself taking a lot of spray wet wading and releasing in beach surf

so I started  gravitating twds a less refined but cheaper and in my mind more durable Daiwa BG or Penn  

 

also multipurpose most of my setups so I don't really fish less than 30# braid 

With a balanced set up launching tins and the smaller reels, I was dumping a lot of the spool before lure even hit the water, so I ended up more in the 3500-4500 area depending on manufacturer 

Fishing 20lb main will probably address that - I just tend twds heavier main - easier to tie, less issues, more margin of error for me

 

Not in any way critiqueing your stuff, just sharing my own experiences for OP based on how I fish 

And where - RI sand and rocks

Dream set up... ODM weapon with either a Stella or Certate LT

 

Actual set up... St Croix 8' Tidemaster with a Stradic FL 5000

 

Obviously cost is a factor, otherwise I'd be fishing the dream set up. :shrug:

My Stradic 5000fk and 9’ Lami work well. 
There is a new, 10’6” St Croix Seage out that I’d pair with a Stradic 5000 fl if I was looking for something new.
