    How about grocery store mackerel for these early season Stripers? I’m thinking about a day trip from up north and I already know how bait is down there at the shops this time of year. You can’t touch anything Herring, Mackerel, Bloodworm up in the Adirondacks. We can’t even get to...

    This is embarrassing! About 10 years ago while at the tackle shop, there were these lures on the counter right near the register. They had a little propeller on them and took two small A batteries. Vin at the counter started raving about them, and sure enough I took the bait. It cost about $12...

    I just picked up a cabela's salt stalker spinning reel ss50 and i was wonder if i should spool it up with 300yd of 50lb braided line or is 150yd of it enough? This reel is for pier fishing and maybe some bank fishing. Also the reel is rated at 10/440, 12/390, 15/280

  14. Saltwater Tackle Shop
    I just picked up the airwave with a daiwa baitrunner and I was unimpressed with the baitrunner. It was cheap and was not very smooth, espcially when it came to casting. The bail would not stay in the lock position very well. I am deciding to buy a much better reel to go along with the airwave...
