    Spinning advice sought

    Here's the thing. This year off from LR to fly fish has really opened my eyes. When I return to LR next summer, I want to be using the gear I spent years scoffing at. Yes, spinning! This is not up for discussion. My question: WHAT THE HECK DO I BUY? Looking for that 30, 40, 50# range. Live...

    Accurate ATD50

    More herd thinning. ATD 50 topless, 4:1 high speed gear. A cow yoyoing dream, but also serves very well to bring back a sardine waayyyyy out there quicker.

    More thoughts about gluing top shots

    Ok, this is something I've been thinking about for some time, I'd like the thoughts of others before I start trying this and testing this summer. UV cureable adhesives. A medium viscosity uv adhesive, formulated for flexibility and adhesion to plastics, still won't "stick" to polyethylene...

    I'm looking at a new wahoo reel, replacing a classic old newell 533, BUT, there are just soooo many reels. It needs to be able to cast a heavy jig/bomb but not concerned with light stuff. Probably close to 40" per crank retrieve. 25+ lbs drag. Can a trq300ld do the job, my only concern...

    THAT'S IT!!

    So I now find the owners/operators of this board have altered my signature and blocked me from returning it to it's original form. I had intended to leave BD as a result of the last big moderator bullshit event, but realized I still owed it to the guys who had taught me soooo much to not do...

    Kudos, of course!

    Just returned from a 15day on the Royal Star . . . off the hook fishing! As years before, every one of my Accurate ATD's performed flawlessly. Complain if you wish about having to do maintenance, no finer reels for big fish are made. Period. Thanks guys!!

    Best Mex food near landings

    We've got a bunch of guys coming down mid-Jan from Alaska to South Africa and everywhere between. So, where's the BEST mexican restaurant near the landings?? Walking distance would be great.

    Thanks Saltydawg!

    I was going to put this on the rod building board and decided, heck, those guys already know, it's the LR guys I want to talk to. Just a couple days more than 2 weeks ago I decided I really needed another 100# rod. With my rod builder no longer around I did some research and contacted Bill...

    2010 redux?

    Ok, I'll be the one to say what we're all thinking (or maybe just me?). The 2011 cow season sure is starting to look like 2010. Lower banks fish that just won't bite, and the boats are scattering down to the buffer zone and Hurricane already. Oh nooooo! Is this the new normal? Ugh...

    Sato Shifter

    For those of you listening to Garry Sato on Let's Talk Hookup Saturday morning you already know, for those who didn't (and it's on the website archives now) he talked about a modified shift button for Accurate ATD's. Garry asked me to go ahead and put it out there, it's totally a go. His idea...

    Next trips out, I'm envious!!

    I just read the Royal Star report for 11/19, WOW! For all you guys leaving the day after Thanksgiving, looks like we don't need to wish you good luck at all. Exploding masses of fish, run and gun big gear style fishing, I am so envious!!

    Go short or go thin?

    In a picky, slow maddening bite, do you feel you get bit better going to a shorter topshot, or to a lighter line? Does a fast swimming tuna notice the sardine swimming better because it's dragging less fluoro, or can it see and select the one dragging one tenth of a mm thinner line?? This...

    I'll try to do this simple direct and organized . . . this has been heavily edited for brevity. The Boat: Yes, it's big, the thing is they incorporated alot of the better features of the boats that went ahead into the Indy. The bulbous bow does improve the ride and try as I might doesn't...

    More INDY questions . . .

    Yes, I'm jonesin' bad for my departure Dec 8th, and yes maybe I'm a little obsessive compulsive . . . BUT, I was looking at the Indy boat tour video and wondered, are they cool with my putting a tacklebox with rocket launchers on the stand upstairs behind the bench/line winder? Looks like a...

    So I guess if dad won't let us fight about Ginger vs Mary Ann, how about chiming in if you are on the Dec 8th trip on the Indy!! Never been on the Indy, but fished w/Jeff some time ago. Sure hope he hasn't gotten old and soft! God, I just can't wait . . . :Exploding_Smiley:

    Independence question

    I'm taking my first trip on the Indy next Dec. Can't get down to Long Beach to look at the boat and answer this question myself. I see the tackle box area is numbered so I assume it's assigned? How big are these spots? Anybody got a photo they can post? I've got 3 boxes to choose from in...

    HX Raptor question
