    Charkbait Fred Hall Sale

    Can’t beat those prices plus the staff is very knowledgeable. Fathom 2 speed getting low in supply. They got Okuma SCT jigstick for 90 bucks.

    Offshore Western Pride Full Day for Bluefin

    Congrats! Great job with the 4/0. Had similar experience many years ago and regretted having the handle slotted for speed rather than torque.

    Jig addiction

    You might need some darker colored jigs, maybe darker mint and scramble eggs iron or brown aji colt sniper type.

    Proteus 76mhf enough rod?

    I tried putting a Lexa 400 on a boat 8’ MH Proteus and the line will rub on the grip at #5 drag; better off with rods recommended here for the Lexa or komodo.

    Favorite 20yr old reel !

    Still use my Quantum IR120 for spottie, my all time favorite when Quantum Reels are made in Japan.

    Anyone know what these types of jigs are used for?

    I remember using those over 4 decades ago. Pier fishing with #4 test line with strip of fillet anchovy. Good for queenfish and mackerel.
