    Had this discussion with a gent a bit into his cups last year on the shore at HH who told me I was going to get a ticket with three lines out. Now I just saw a mention of two lines per man in one of the informational write-ups on the Chum site. Am I all wet, or didn't this change in the regs...
  2. Stripers 101 - The Beginners clinic.
    Hey guys, I remember reading somewhere or hearing from someone somewhere that using braided line for striped bass isn't good. Can someone explain this to me? Why is mono preferred over braided line? I'm just confused, I've been using braided line for all my other fishing applications I.E...

  5. Stripers on the Fly
    Anyone have any advice for a good striper line? Just won my choice of any fly line in the Scientific Anglers '2010 Mastery Catalog' in a raffle...but not sure which would be best for the beaches & jetties.

    Well, I usually fish from a pier in Rarytan Bay, NJ. I've used mono Tectan 26 lbs with some success in small/medium sizes, sadly Tectan is hard to find in big numbers (expensive) I've tried some mono 50/40 lbs test with some dissapointments : hard to cast, lot of tangles, line is heavy and not...
  8. The Striper Forum
    I like the fishing line discussions on here. I've done alot of experimenting with different kinds of lines, and I figured I would post some of my personal experiences. I'm going to differentiate between mono used for main line (running line) and for leaders. Lets start with what I like best...

I own an 8.5 ft 8 wt rod and have two lines, on separate spools, an 8wt WF floater and an 8wt WF intermediate. So far so...

    Does anyone have a good technique for marking distances on their trolling lines that will stay in tack.? I've tried masking tape and acrilic paint and is lides or is scraped off when I reel in and it hits the rod guides. Thx:pbdoi:

    Fly Line Memory - All fly lines have "memory" - most often seen in the form of coils when line is first stripped from a reel, especially in stiffer lines made for warmer weather and distance casting. Taking the time to stretch your line in your hands after pulling it off of the reel will improve...
