We were out practicing throwing some surface iron Sunday afternoon @ 56th Street... watchin some of my sons friends surf...
Ive set him up a Tern 400 with a Gen 1 Graftech 80M rod I refurbished... Itll HUCK Tady Cs and 4/0s...
Just as I call out OK LETS GO!! He freakin yells IM BIT!! WTF?? on the Jig??

Looks like the little Guy went in for the kill and got snagged... Tady C mint / white...
Glad the hook popped right out... had no gear with us... had no intention of catching anything on The Iron from the beach... LOL
Think Im gonna go back and see if I can stir up something a little bigger...

Ive never seen that before...

How do you like that Tern? Did you go with a 400 or 500? I think I am going to pick up a 500 for slinging iron.

I like em... I have (2) of the 400s now... ones a little rougher than the other but the drags are smooth and strong... freespools great on both... I had a 500 and it fished well... holds about the same amount of line as a 20 size reel... but theyre ALOT lighter than a Shimano or Diawa... Ive been eyeing the 600 Narrow for some time... think Im gonna give one a whirl...

We used to catch tons of those back in the days on Megabaits. They feel the vibration and chase it. End up usually getting snagged.

I also had an unexpected catch while trying out my new jig stick. Had a new 100j calstar and on my 2nd cast off the catalina dock in dana point harbor i hooked a solid 30 inch halibut on a tady c and was in disbelief. Was lucky enough a guy in a whaler was idling by and gaffed it for me.
