Really sorry if this is a total newb question, but Im just trying to expand my knowledge on rods.... I know BTG is a composite blank and a GF is a composite built rod... "MY"common sense tells me that a GF 100J is just a factory built BTG100J. Please be kind with your responses. Thank you!!
Please excuse my ignorance or lack of knowledge... I know Cousins went out of business awhile back and the 95J mag is a highly sought after rod but my questions(s) is what makes them such a great rod and why havent other companies replicated it or tried to?
This may be a dumb question but is this additional license necessary? I went all last year without it. And when I went to renew my license yesterday that guy told me it was necessary to fish in the ocean. I’ve never heard of it.
Went to Tackle Days today and picked up my fathom 25nld2. They spooled it with 55# spectra all the way to the brim. This is going to be my 40# setup. My question is do I just app a short fluoro leader or take spectra off and add some mono?
Good Morning, BDer's
As most everyone knows it is extremely hard to find LH reel versions of some of the most popular reel companies (shimano). Curious to know do any LH fisherman use RH conventional reels and what their thoughts are. Is it difficult to adapt and are there any unforseen issues...
Total newb question as I am trying to get into jig fishing. What are the differences between the GG and Grafighter series? Is one better for surface iron fishing? Is another better for live bait/ yoyo fishing? TIA
As this season is drawing to a close, I am thinking about next year. I’m expanding my fishing from shore pounding and half days and graduating to full and 1.5 days. Which surface irons and yo-yo jigs should I buy( colors and brands) .
I recently purchased a Penn Fathom 25nld2 which will be my 40# live bait set up. Looking to see what everyones opinions are for what rod I should look into( Id prefer an 8ft rod). I know Seekers SS6480-8'CT is good but want to know my options. Thanks and Tight Lines!
Looking to get a rod built for my Penn Fathom 25nld2 for my 40# setup. I was trying to decide between these 2 blanks. Im curious to see what everyones thoughts are on these blanks. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
