    Good advice here. I’m partial to Shimano . But more importantly , where you from in Mass? I grew up in Shrewsbury but have lived here for 30+ years.

    Yes, we came out about 6 years ago. We lived in southeast MA but had a place on the cape. I also lived in Maine when I was a kid. Did the Awesome give it away? ;)

    No, you mentioned Mass , but it was wicked obvious 😜. I spent a lot of summer weeks at my aunts place in Harwichport on the Cape. Fished off the jetties at Allen and Whychmere( sp ? ) harbors most days. Got a lot of in-laws in Maine.

    I've switched to Okuma guide select 10'6" and 9'6" downrigger rods. Some have Penn Fathom LW 25's and some have Okuma 203's. So far so good with everything. Much better than the Lamiglass I started with.

    My dad's side of the family is from Chatham. We would spend all summer at grandma's house, first house up from the fish pier on Barcliff before all the McMansions were built around it. Dad worked on charter boats in the late 50's early 60's and I grew up fishing Monomoy rips with him in the 80's.

    Just spent a few weeks back there with my wife & daughter, took my parents boat and my buddy http://www.chathamfishingcharters.com/ gave me the intel. Got my 6 year old daughter on the fish and she was stoked. Striper for dinner!
