  1. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    Penn battle 2 or pen fierce? Just wondering people's opinions on the two and what reel you would invest into.
  2. Hudson River
    Just brought home a fresh Okuma baitfeeder 50 series.Not sure if I should've got the 65. I'm looking to spool it with Power Pro 30lb test, then use a 50lb leader. Should I back it with some mono 1/2 full then the braid or go all braid? Would the 150yds of braid be enough after the backing or...

    If you are in a boat running to a hot spot that you know in 40' of water,what would you tie on first??Which rod, reel combo would be in your hand?
  4. Stripers 101 - The Beginners clinic.
    A question for those with experience.... Can you pull umbrella rigs on 25# mono or is it too light? Would there be too much stretch? Or can I pull planer boards on braided? I have heard that it slips but not sure if that's true. I fish an inland resavoir and I am on a budget so I wanted to put...

  6. Shorebound - Surf Beginners
    So i am looking to get a new rod for surfcasting, and i'm not sure what size to get. Im thinking about getting a 10' 2 piece. Although im told that a one piece is much better. I travel to the shore to fish, so a one piece would be hard to deal with but is it that much better to have? Also is...
  7. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    Just when I thought I had it figured out, along comes one more 'choice'. Was pretty much deceided on a Shimano Tekota 300 w/ the optional power handle for boat fishing in south Jersey for Stripers/Blues/Flounder/Tog and such. With some 30-50 PP and a new 7' St. Croix I figured I was done. Just...
  8. Cape Cod Canal
    So what do u guys use for line when fishing tougher areas such as Montauk, Biddeford Pool or the likes? Went out Saturday to test my Stable Icers on the slick rocks (they held up quite nicely by the way) but I lost 2 lures to fraying/breakage. I'm guessing such areas would call for braid (of...

  13. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    Im looking to spend around $100 for a new spinning reel. There is so much out there I am having a hard time making up my mind. How about the Baitrunner option? So I present it to you all.
  14. The Striper Forum
    Ok so this has been bugging me all night so here goes: When fishing at night with fire in the water light line and tackle are a must, that much I know. Does the fire "bounce" off bigger plugs fished fast? If this is the case then tying directly to the plug is a must correct? Also, I would...
  15. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I'll be trolling, fishing live bait and chunks from my boat. I have a 7' Tiger Ugly Stick that I plan to use. I've been trying to research reels and I'm thinking of either a Penn GT 330LD or the Shimano TLD20 or maybe TLD25. Any thoughts as to which would be a better choice? Any others I should...

    I'm having trouble finding a good,durable line for my spincast reel.I use P-line xtra strong on my baitcasters but it doesnt work well for spining reels.I tried Trilene XL which flows off the spool great but has very poor abrasion resistance and i've also tried spiderwire (which became a...
  17. Kayaking Stripers
    I'm a new member here but have been Kayak fishing for a couple years. Most of my fishing these days is eel trolling at night and I've been using both live bait hooks and circle hooks. They seem pretty equal as far as hook ups go with mabye a slight edge going to the "J" hooks. The circles...
  18. Surfcasting Central
    I had good success this fall using bunker that I would buy at a tackle shop, but I would sometimes rather avoid the trip to the tackle shop. There's a number of fresh fish stores in my area. What do you think that is normally sold in local fish stores would work just as good as bunker? They...
