    Hi All, Bought a nice umbrella rig and want to start trolling it this weekend. My reels have 80lb mono on them and my question is, do I need a trolling sinker to get them down?

    I was fishing the Cape Cod Canal last weekend and the guy next to me had come up from Texas and was casting a few. He was fishing Mackerel chunks with a pretty thick Fluorescent Green Mono and about 6 inches of clear Mono for a leader. I would think that even with a longer leader, this color is...

    This knot was developed by Patrick Sebile--designer of all the lures produced by the Sebile lure company. He saw some Japanese guys tying a version of it and came up with this knot using the basic principles from the one they were tying. I used this knot on 30 lb poer pro to 30 lb big game and...

    I spent today doing the most thorough clean-up / tune-up of my fishing equipment that I may have ever attempted, and I came across a full spool of 25# mono, a half spool of 20# and most of a spool of 25# flourocarbon all bought 4 summers ago when I first started targeting stripers. I feel like...

    What do you guys prefer over all for Striper fishing weather it would be Jigging, Plugging, Live Lining, or Bait Fishing.. I would say PowerPro just because it dosent Streatch and it is more sensitive. Also it is a big tougher for the Blues to bite through.
