Not meaning to come off sounding like a know it all but I've noticed two things.

One thing I noticed is many like the Penn SS reels.Why?These things are horrible.Bail flip on the cast,extremely weak anti-reverse,no ballbearing line
roller.The 1st two faults are very common in the 5500ss and smaller models hence the intro of the SSG models at an inflated rate.The Slammers are OK but why buy one when you can pick up a Shimano Spheros for less money and still have a better reel?As far as baitrunners go Shimano's is which all others are judged by.Before you say "Penns are made in the USA" you might
want to not say that.ALL Penn spinning reels are now made overseas with the exception of the 704/706 whose future is debatable.

As far as Floro leader material goes Seagar is simply the best.If money is an issue when it comes to your leaders you might as well just be using regular mono.NEVER skimp on the leader.

I use Ande flourocarbon, havent had a problem with it yet, so why stop.

My new fave rod has to be my 8.5' (custom length from a 10') Ben Doerr St. Croix surf rod. Since the tip was shortened, I can heave a little more weight with it. It loads up SICK, so now I can cast FARTHER with LESS weight, which is a plug for me when I am fishing the "Rock Bowls" along the coast and the depth of water is less than 10 feet.

And like Briggs, I love my 8.5' Ugly Stik custom InterCoastal.

Default re: where r u going to fish

I use penn 320 gti and a new 320gti Ld on a 10 and 11ft lamiglass two piece. 85lbs braid 400 + yards. And a 15 pound sett drag. It makes draging in any fish under 20 pounds kind of boring. but makes for alot of confidence with cows on the other end. were's that 50 hiding let me at her.

My go to set-up for plugging & eeling is a 10 ft Lami GSB1201L teamed with a Penn 704Z. 50 lb. Powerpro & 40 Seaguar leader.

For back bay plugging my favorite set-up is a 9' GSB1081L teamed with a Penn 710Z. 20 lb. fireline & still the 40 lb. Seaguar leader. This is one fun stick to use. I really enjoy the fight using this set-up.

I too just bought a spool of Triplefish leader material - I got twice as much leader for just a couple of bucks more than a lot less Seaguar. Seaguar is good but pricy. Just tied up some rigs with the Triplefish so I can't comment yet on how it performs. I'm sure it will be fine though.

Since my first post in this thread I picked up a Lami XS 101 MS. Without a doubt the most versitile rod I've ever owned. Paired with a 706 and 20# Fireline it's great for everything from eels and jigs to Bombers, pencils and big wood.

For Surf Fishing I use an old 10 foot diawa with a Penn 7500ss filled with 20lb stren high impact, Great for striper spawning season, when the big ones are in there.

For the Jetty for Blues and Stripers 9 Foot Penn Power Guide Series Surf rod, got 2 extra eyes put on it with a 6000 Penn Captiva(which is in the mail back to penn with an angered letter since I've gone through 2 of the same reel in a 2 month period) but I use my other Penn 7500ss spooled with 50 lb Spiderwire now

For The Jetty for Taug and other bottom fish I either use My Jetty Pole or an 8' Berkely Big Game which is a great pole for the price helped me get many a taug in for a cheap price, nice stiff back bone with my Captiva Spooled With 50lb Raptor

Going to need to get my 7500 spooled up this weekend since the captiva is gone, how is Stren Super Braid? I'm thinking of trying it i've heard alot of good things

currently a live liner on a penn spinfisher (9' 1-5oz) for plugs and light bait. Ocean master 10' 4-8 for bait.

But I'm making the switch to plugs so I'll be redoing my line up.
same penn rod w/ a 704/6 for wading and throwing mono(rocks)
amtak glass blank w/ a 710 for light plugs and wading when throwing braid
heavier amtak glass blank for jetties w/ a squidder
croix rated 3/4-4 for general plugging-when i stay dry matched w/ an abu 6500, big game cl, mag elite, or record 60 hcl.

will have to sell the bait stuff to get all this
check the classifieds in a couple weeks

Now that my season is officially done I finally had to straighten out the cave this weekend, looked like a tackle shop exploded.

After a quick count I discovered I have an exact match - 70 rods and 70 reels - what would be the odds of that (and it gets weirder)

Of the 70 rods, 29 are in regular use, one is collectable, 11 are retired (mostly fresh water) 9 rods are blanks still in various stages of construction and another 10 are waiting for repairs.

Of the 70 reels, 29 are in regular use, 7 are in the collectable cabinet, 10 are retired, and 4 are in the junk drawer.

The 29 rods and 29 reels in regular use combined with the 70 / 70 total is extremely bizzare. For the most part I don't match every reel to a specific rod. Just 2 flyrods and one freshwater setup are rods exclusively matched to their own reels, everything else is mix and match to the condition. The fact that the numbers are exactly the same is extremely freaky coincidence.

Weird

For launching meat- 12ft6 inch 6-16 ounce breakaway custom meatstick coupled with a daiwa slosh 30 casting reel loaded with 25 pound pink ande tied to a 60 pound jinkai shocker. 8 n bait!!! Doesn't matter the wind condition. My rig is commin through and staying put.


For snagging bunker and working lures- 10ft6 inch loomis medium heavy coupled with a 4500 daiwa emblem xt loaded with 15 pound pink ande. Own 5 brand new daiwa emblem xt(they don't make them anymore). The smoothest most powerful drag on any spinning reel. Which too me is all that matters on a reel


those are my 2 main no bull**** SETUPS. Dependability and ridigity are my two main concerns. Those two setups carry that out flawlessly.







The beach at 1 am, 50 fresh bunkers, 6 hours to spare, and 15 mph wind in your face........... Priceless...............

Hey ToeCheese,
So are you from the Rockaway Beach in Oregon, or Queens, NY?
Nice setups, by the way
