I had a friend in Tampa Bay request a build that would handle his inshore/nearshore grouper fishing. He will be using big swim baits and plugs with the occasional live pinfish mixed in for the finicky ones. I found a gem with this blank! I used the LS76/20-40 so he can make longer casts into the rock piles in 20-30 feet of water while targeting some gag grouper. It has some serious power to turn the heads of those fish before they find their home in the jagged rocks. I had to cut the grip down to the desired length and shaped it to fit the Posi-Lock reel seats by American Tackle Company. Of course I used my favorite set of spinning guides the MW30's. I have using these guides for several years and can not say enough good thing about them. Not bad for a NEWB!
