    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.

    Rain possibility bad for fishing??

    Same as Cubey, I had very good luck when the barometric level is rapidly going down and when the dry bulb and wet bulb temp are about to meet and a few hours after. The next day after that is not a good day.

    What would you add to my Arsenal

    Agree, then add a stealth 15/20 live bait; God knows how many times it made my day.
