  1. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    Hello, I have a Cardiff 200A, used it twice now. Both times when I get a fish of any size, I find that I can turn the reel but no line is retrieved--and i'm losing them (Tautog). The drag seems fine, the fish isn't able to take much or any line, but the handle turns and the reel picks up...

    Just bought several Stick Shadds Sz 155 floating, last week, the one in Sea Chrome I've used twice and noticed it sank slowly, where the others floated on the surface. Got home and weighed it 2.51 ozs thats the weight of their suspending lures in tha 155s now I know why it sinks. So I thought I...

  4. Saltwater Licence Registry Links/Regulations/Laws
    I read a thread a few day's ago and I can't find it. Anyhow it was about limiting striper caught to 1, slot limit, or other choice. What I gathered is that some are in fear the fish is being overfished. Well I see a solution for Sport and Commercial fisherman, I just don't know if some states...

  8. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    Hi Guys, I really need some sound advice on this one. My father-in-law gave me one of his old boat poles years ago and it had a Penn140 Squidder on it. I've enjoyed fishing with the pole even though it was pretty beat up. With no fish in the surf at this time i was looking for a project and...

My CONCERN is while I was out this morning the voltage meter was reading between 17 and 18 volts - I understand there can be a couple volt jump while the motor is running, but I...
