    What’s up with the Seeker D8?

    I’m a seeker guy and hate the d8; there are some variations of the seeker d8 that are better than others but the rod in general just sucks. It’s a noodle - barely heavy enough to fish 30. If you enjoy getting your ass kicked and seeing your rod bend in half then that’s good for you. if you want...

    Limits question

    You fish for boat limits, people will say they caught ‘x’ amount but everyone goes him with 2/5/whatever - best personal policy is to read the room in my opinion; on a boat full of killers or a private charter ?

Just barely fit in when the Plano was extended to its max of 9feet and remarkably (to my somewhat surprise, I was fully...

    Lack of educated 2 speed users.

    Penn or shimano should make high-end 40/40n star drags again with the latest technology so we don’t need to waste money on 2 speed/lever drags to fish 40# and up
