    Daiwa Luna 253 & Accurate Fury 400

    Ok. makes total sense. Let me ask you this, if you had no other alternative, would you use the black diamond youre using for jigging for say, shrimp flys, and or simple drop loops with strip baits (squid, rockfish, mackeral) And thank you! I appreciate your input, sir!

    Daiwa Luna 253 & Accurate Fury 400

    well, since i plan on using it for bait, i dont mind a more moderate tip. I plan on using the rod for bait and light jigging for bottomfish. how do u thik it would do for those applications. what would be a better choice for those applications if the Abyss isnt the optimal decision to go with?

    What rod to choose?

    I dont know if you were asking me, but I myself, usually only go with one rod. But if I did go with two, its no problem because I have a 3rd Grip. Also, when I do take two, one rod is for Perch, and the other for throwin hardbaits for the bigger species.

    Youre not gonna get nearly the same action from a LC on 20 lb test as with 10 or 12. And whether you tie a good knot or not, when the line tangles on your reel in a wind knot and you try to cast with enough force, that shit is snapping. I dont care how good you say you tie your knots.

    3rd Grip surf rod holders

    Thank you very much for the heads up, sir!!! Joy is a 10 minute drive from my house so I had to go take a look. I had $53 dollars on Joy's Bonus/VIP card, and got 2 of their last 3 3rd Grip holsters, for free. The only reason I didnt get the third, is because the owner wouldnt sell it to me...

    newbie, just bought my first baitcaster?

    You should use a trigger stick rod for low pro reels. You get a better grip, which means more sensitivity transmitted into your hand... There are some exceptional rods out there for under a hundred bucks.

    Daiwa Coastal. A good reel for a good price. Dont be fooled into thinking a certain brand of reel which costs $300 is the only one that will work. Thats simply nonsense. But then again, if you want to spend $300 on a baitcaster, get a new Daiwa Zillion Coastal. Havent tried one on the water...

    What do you like best for lingcod bait?

  476. FishinElectrician

    messed up Teramar rod

    What is the optimum size braid that you guys recommend for the Saltist 20H???
  513. FishinElectrician

    I have. Its worked pretty damn good for me, so far... 65lb. Ugly Braid with a 25lb. mono topshot is the ticket for bottomfishing with jigs and Yo-Yoing the Yellows. At least for me it is.
