    Where should the fuel level be on the front filter bulb? Should it always be at the top? Mine is not. Replaced all new pumps and filters. Idles perfect, but haven't put it under load yet. Pic below is during idle. I can fill it with the bulb, but it will always drop to around this level.

    @TexasPro88 , I averaged 40 hours a month in 2012 and 2013. In 2014 I did 40 hours all year. A new baby and a 60 hour a week work schedule has kept me from doing many things. Obviously, fishing slip to the back of the list. But yes, the goal is to get out a lot more this year.

    Throwing plastic w/ straight spectra???

    I agree with your comment on hook up ratio regarding leader vs straight, especially in stained water or low light conditions. And yeah, it's much easier to break off 40lb flouro vs 65lb braid when you just can't seem to free the snag.
  164. Reel_Newbie

    Throwing plastic w/ straight spectra???

    The Wall, 30lb minimum if your fishing jagged structure. It's important to inspect the leader every so often due to the abrasive nature of the rocks. After a nasty snag, where you've tugged, pulled, yanked on your lure to free it, cut the end off and retie. Chances are the knot has been exposed...

    In over my head?

    Welcome to your next addiction! I just started wrapping my self and am currently working on my second rod. I bought the starter kit at Acid and have slowly worked up my collection of tools. It's a blast. Do it. You will not regret it! Oh, and keep in mind that there are plrntly of good...

    Are you against flocking it? I'm assuming that would be the quick cure.

    Rod #2 Gift to my Father-in-Law (with story)

    The band on the opposite side of the guide? Just haven't gotten that far. It takes me a couple tries to get the trim lined up without overlap. I'm using the straw/toothpick trick, but I'm struggling.

    Rod #2 Gift to my Father-in-Law (with story)

    Well, since having the day off, I decided it was a good time to try my second rod build. This will be a gift for my Father-in-Law, Steve (Love you Steve-O). I've known the guy for 15+ years and He's always been fair, understanding, and forgiving. My first fishing trip (ever) was with him. At...

    Lathe Ideas for turning grips?

    So i've searched without results. I was hoping some of you could post photos of your home built or partly home built lathes. In addition, maybe a brief description of parts used. I was thinking of flipping my drill press on it's side with a roller on the opposite end. . .? Again, any...

    First Rod. Simple Inshore Rod

    Indeed. I think this was just an "ice breaker". The more time I spend reading, observing and noting different styles/techniques the craving to build increases 10 fold. I even took a "day off" from fishing to finish this rod. Thank you all for the kind remarks.

    The more I read, the more I itch for building. You're right Jimmy, it's almost as addicting as fishing. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice. Love how you set it up with a long handle. I believe I've seen you use the Alps seat on other rods. How do you like it?

    First Rod. Simple Inshore Rod

    Done and ready for Friday. The most difficult step (to me) was the epoxy. It seemed as if I was trying to hard to gain the perfect shape. I learned alot in the process so the next blank should flow more consistantly. At the end of the day, the rod feels great and with a low pro baitcaster it...

    Thanks for your kind words of wisdom. No cool intended, and you're right....there is no reason for the rig to fly out of my hands. But what the hell, :shithappens: happens and I'll be back at it tonight with less butter on my hands.

    Looking for a working used power wrapper/dryer

    Figured it would make more sense to post it here. I'm looking for a good used machine, something beginner friendly that won't break the bank. I wrapped my first rod last week and now I'm hooked. Thanks guys.

    Cool bro. Thanks. Maybe a diver someday will retrieve my set-up. I hope you guys ended up having a stellar day. We should meet up sometime for an early wall session. I'm always down there and always have an extra spot on the boat. We also just picked up another GoPro for multiple POV's.

    So we're planning a Catalina run within the next week or so. Being this will be my first time both taking my boat and fishing Catalina, I was looking for any advise/insight. Where to find the bass, what to expect, different baits or techniques. Thanks in advance, anything helps.

    Okuma Cedros Coastal Rods?

    I have the Cedros Coastal in 7'-6" H. I got it on a warranty exchange thru Okuma because my current rod was not in stock. It has quality parts, light weight, and fit and finish is on par or better than the average import rod. I use it mainly for pitching plastics at the break wall (i.e...
