    Daiwa Saltiga 30T How Much Drag?

    Line capacity it going to limit you to fish it at 40lb for the most part with spectra of course. I use mine for 30lb but mostly 40lb and it is great. You can fish 50lb on it, in my opinion, with out any problems in terms of the internals, but keep in mind that line capacity.

    Bassin, bait and more bait #2015 Offshore Fishing Video

    Thanks for the offer and I will definitely let him know about it. I miss having a guy who took pictures and documented our fishing trips and then posted them on the boats website. It was a way to share the trips with family and friends. By the way, the owner is not "big bucks", but he is a...

    Fishing cliches..

    Let us not forget that 10% of the fishermen catch 90% of the fish and don't get me started on the dumb fishing shirts people wear to go along with their goofy cliches!

    thanks to the dipshit who hit my trailer at shelter island

    I highly doubt it was illegals given where I was at, but it is wrong to hit someone and not own up to it regardless of legal status. Again it should not surprise us given the way more serious and deadly hit and runs in the news.

    thanks to the dipshit who hit my trailer at shelter island

    My cars have been hit three times in the last two years while being parked and not one note! So, sadly, I am not surprised that these idiots never leave a one. I am always mindfull to park correctly so I don't get hit. Ugggghhhhh! Man I feel your frustration.

    Abu Garcia Revo Toro Beast: Preview

    I love fishing reels, both inside and out, and I love the way you go into great detail to explain the simple, yet complex nature of them. I really apreciate it, because I service all of my reels, both conventional and low profiles and know the effort it takes to do what you do. There is...

    will shimano make a 400 size curado?

    Is this true for the Japanese market as well, because it seems that there are more lefty options in each of the reel lines for that market. Are more lefties sold in Japan vs the US?

    HB flats fishing?

    Are you kidding me, sculpin is shut down. I don't even target sculpin they are a bycatch for me, that by the way do taste good, but really is it shut down for the spawn or is there some other good reason? Just asking, as I had no clue this was the case. It seems like that is the trend to...

    will shimano make a 400 size curado?

    A 400 size curado would be great and even better in a lefty although my calcutta 401te is batting clean up for schoolie yft right now.

    Is Okuma left hand friendly?

    That is awesome news......I've always liked the andros line but never purchased one and that is now about to change. Love me those lefties. Thanks for listening.

    Left hand conversion reels???

    I am right handed and absolutely prefer the lefties. Holding the rod in my dominant hand feels more natural to me. I learned as a kid to fish conventionals as a righty as that was the only choice. Once lefties became available, as a true tackle ho, I started to collect them and happy to have...

    Is Okuma left hand friendly?

    I have both, but prefer the lefties and I have gone through a lot of expense to aquire them. I too would love to be able to purchase a few makairas in lefties and piss my wife off some more.

    Left hand retreive reels...

    I am right handed and use both, but prefer the lefties. I don't understand why, if given the choice, more people don't use lefties. I see guys reeling a righty under their right arm..... talk about uncomfortable. On a big fish you use both hands to lift the rod, but if your right hand is the...
