Thanks for the welcome, you guys have a great site. I have two, my wife is aces, both are pre reel ventures. More importantly let me tell you guys whats going on. New years eve my wonderful wife shows me on e-bay this person selling staals cheap. I've wanted a silver one for ever, the best friend says cut it out nobody has or needs three. He's right! Any ways the wife buys a silver 250 for $555, they retail for $670. Well god must have said nyut no more. Three weeks later still no reel. She's now trying to get our money back. Craig at Van Staal says if you were to find a staal on e-bay, call them and they will tell you if it's stolen. The woman who's trying to sell them goes by nurse jellews.....beware of her she doesn't even have any!

The reel looks solid

The tica libra 4000.

It feels good too. I think it would hold up to a 30 maybe 40 pound fish. I had fish tear apart a more expensive penn 7500ss. Nothing has torn up my 704Z though. At least not a stiper. I had an old Mitchell 306 egg beater that nearly was spooled. I think the fish cut the line with its gill plate . Either that or i screwed up with the drag. It was way too tight.

Eyl nut that sucks. Ebay has a fraud cancellation policy I hope.

When the fish are in real close during the Fall Run, you dont need a big 10+ foot heaver to get out to the fish. In the Fall, atleast here along the NH coast, the Stripers are chasing Peanut Bunker right along shore, and I have caught Bass 6 feet in front of me in the rocks. When the actions real hot like that, waders arent even needed. I use various 7' light and medium setups when the fish are in close.

When the fish are in the heavy surf and need to be "reached", I use 8.5, 9 and 10' surf rods. I'm not really into anything over 10 feet anymore.

In my limited surfcasting experience...I just throw bait on a fish-finder...I can throw it pretty far...works especially well in high wind conditions...

...or just large plugs

Depends on the time of summer and what the conditions are striper777. Look first to see whats running, what their feeding on ie....peanut bunker, herrin, etc...... means the difference between plugs, plastics and Kastmasters and Krocodiles. Various rubber lead headed eels are great mid summer along with Tube&worm rigs. If i myself is going to use a plug, it will be a floater. with all the other rigs out there, theres almost no reason to ever use a swimmer or a diver....plastic shad took its place easily. If your throwing plugs, work your casts in a clockwise motion, always changing spots but always coming back to where you started. If your going for Blues.... take the front set of trebles off for better release, we all know how much bluefish are maniacs when you get um out of the water.

Clambellies for me, are the best bait out there, second only to fresh eels. Use them in the morning, use them in the night, whatever. stripers will hit clambellies no matter what. When you can put a clambellie in a bucket of water, and it floats, its no good. if you buy quantity, freeze them in brine/water mix....when you thaw them out, they will be harder than when you put them in.

Hope this helps a little my friend.

Well thats easy but you might laugh.....A Simple old, "Gags Grabber Popper" Floating, Rattling, noisy sob. 5 inch, 1.5oz, chrome.

It Floats so you'll want to work this baby slow most of the time. short popping bursts work for me. i've been hit by stopping it for a second and then continueing my retrieve. you can hear it working and popping. I dont think you CAN retrieve these things wrong. another thing i learned is to keep working it until its on land basically, i've been splashed by getting wacked right in front of my face, they follow it in and their last act of vengence is to slam the hell out of it, scares the hell out of me every time hahaha. some of my biggest stripers have come out of 3 feet of water, working this popper in front of eel grass.

So Yea, nothing really extravagant for this fisherman.

This plug will also make blues go nuts, i save all my old ones just for this purpose.

I guess you dont get much Pogie up past Block island. I just love bunker. Heads especially. Eels next. Bloodworms and sandworms.
Clams in the sand though.

Love these things Craig.
