    Bay Reel Recommendations

    Right on Andy, you'll be stoked with that reel! My CoastaIs are spooled with 50# JBraid. You could go as light as 40# but I like the 50 for going both Calico and inner harbor. Check out the new JBraid x8 Grand, this stuff is money!

    Favorite Saltwater Fishing Mag

    Fish Taco is another great magazine covering local salt and freshwater fishing. Very reasonable for a subscription as well. Plus if you sign up or renew at Fred Hall they have killer goodie bags.

    Bay Reel Recommendations

    Check out the Daiwa Coastal TWS. I have been digging this reel for bay bass and inshore/island calico bass applications. This reel has had tons of saltwater splashed on it from sloppy crossings to SCI and back, this reel is holding up very well. Just give it a good freshwater rinse after each...

    Seeking Long Sleeve SPF 50 Fishing Shirt Recommendations

    Check out the line up from AFTCO. They have several shirts with hoods and hood/mask combo even. I have some that are a few years old now that have held up without issue. The new Barracuda Geo is killer. When cool out I use them as a base layer. They also have a nice line up of gloves as well.

    Rod Tube friendly Airlines?

    I used a small TSA lock. I actually flew from Ontario to Houston for business then from Houston to Dallas (fished Lake Fork in NE Texas) then flew back from Dallas to Ontario. The Bazuka held up great. Even if the latch got busted the lock would have kep the lid shut....

    Rod Tube friendly Airlines?

    Flew in March on American to Texas and took a few rods to fish in a bass tourney while I was out there. Had no problems. One rod tube and one bag with reels/tackle both only count as one checked back and the rod tube is excempt from oversize charge.

    freshening up cork handles

    I've used those little sponges that have the scouring material on one side and that are pre-treated with detergent. Wet down the cork, scour, rinse real good and they look like new.....

    Braided Line On A Baitcaster

    I just spooled up a Curado 200 with Spiderwire's Ultracast which seems to be much smoother than the Power Pro. I was out in Texas and fished in a tournament with it. Conditions were windy and I only had one minor backlash. This stuff seems to cast much better. I used the 50# which is the size of...

    Spectra/mono topshot suggestions for a older LX 4.1

    I've got 65 spectra and right now it's topped with 40 mono for ablies. I've also had 30 mono on top as well. It's only been tested on fat ablies so far, but no problems.

    Leadcore line

    Thanks Steve. I looked at it and it's 18lb, I thougt it was lighter and the two reels I was trying to spool it on was a Abu 5500 and a 300 size shimano. I think I will invest in a 6500 size reel and get some 12lb. Thanks again for the info.

    Leadcore line

    Any reel recommendations for spooling up leadcore line? I've got a couple of reels that hold 150+ yards of 20 pound test but I can't seem to get more than 5 colors of leadcore on those reels.

    Looking to match a rod to a Torium 14

    I have new Torium 14 that I'm looking to match up with a rod for fishing "The Wall". I looked at the Teramar breakwall rods but I don't like how the butt section is so short. I'd like a shorter rod (6' 6" to 7') with a longer butt section, good sensitivity and the muscle to pull those bruisers...

    NPH 01/28

    Fished Newport Bay today from 6:30am until 3:30pm with a buddy. Trolled and fished plastics all day. Day started off slow with just a one 10" spottie on a Storm deep diving Thunderstick. Had a second fish hit that felt substantially better, but came off, actually the fish ate most of the lure...
