    Need to Id an old newell reel

    if you can measure side plate height and spool width, some Newell experts will know right away. Also might help to put a known reel next to it for scale and shoot pics from a couple angles. Looks to me like a 338 or 229.

    FG Knot Performance

    With either method the results are the same. The spectra wraps around the fluoro/mono. Rizutto is the preferred finish.

    Recommendation’s For Turkey Brine

    I do the Alton Brown method. Love it. Easy enough to find his YouTube clips. Not sure how the smoke will complement, but I bet it would be pretty good!

    FG Knot Performance

    The only one I’ve had fail was when I was fishing for green bass and had tied a crappy one. Lost a tricked out umbrella rig to a tree... On the salty front, I don’t think I’ve ever broken one. I’ve had far more hooks break than FGs!

    Tady 9/0 from 80's

    Cool find! Given that a Salas 7X light is around 3.5 ounces, it’s safe to say your 9/0 is a yo-yo jig.

    Will the big bluefin eat the little bluefin that are hanging around?

    This post has me wondering what kind of responses someone would have gotten 10 years ago had they suggested bouncing a rubber flying fish under a kite! Sometimes you just never know. However, I would hope that using baby BFT for bait doesn't gain the same popularity!
