Re: Newbie Rod and reel setups (Nelson)

What style of fishing are you wanting to try? I am guessing from the mention of Scarborough and sinkers it's bait. A good couple of options are either going spin with a baitfeeder type reel (Okuma Avenger, Shimano Baitrunner, Penn Liveliner) that mean you can strayline and cast easily. Get a 6'6 gla...

Re: Strayline reels

It is the rod that does the work. As long as your chosen reel has a smooth drag and can hold the appropriate amount of line, it does not matter. I'd agree to a here, and chose a reel that's reasonably well matched to the rod weightwise. Both of those reels will do the trick, but I'd go with the Cor...

Re: Fluoro leader for soft bait

If you are looking to use a clip consider Mustad's fastach clips. I use fastach swivel clips on all my rigs - trolling, running rigs, dropper rigs, micro jigs. I'm not a big soft-baiter. They are small for their rating, easy (once you get used to the, secure and do not fail (in my experience). I've...

It's an Okuma Komodo 364, has stainless steel gears, 11 ball bearings, 11 kgs of drag (carbon fibre), spool driven level wind (means that the levelwind always stays lined up with line going out, meaning no harsh line angles under load when lines going off the ...

Re: buying fish finder/ chartplottrt from Ebay

Just be aware that almost all chartplotters are now "geolocked" so won't work outside of region of purchase.
You can buy an unlock key, but it will cost almost as much as the unit itself.
For a FF, that's not applicable.

Re: Chinese reels - Opinions? Experiences?

It's very much a case of you get what you pay for, less any local support in terms of parts and service. One of the things going for any of the locally distributed brands is that they do have excellent back up, parts and service available for when things wear out, as well as testing products for loc...

Re: Looking for Microjigs weighing 10g or less.

Or these, not a microjig really, but a bait jig, come in a 3 pack and rigged with singles, not trebles as shown.

Re: Are we loosing the "brotherhood "??

The original article, and it's premise, I have seen in another sport that I have been actively involved in for far too long, although the active part of my involvement has kind of gone by the way, but I am still involved. That sport is cycling, and much of what has been pointed out in the article, h...

Some good pointers here for Milford -

But I'd also suggest that you want to change your gear a little. Not that Blue Cod fight overly well, its the other critters that will make life interesting.

Re: Jigging rod length?

I'd pair it with the Metaloid 200-350gm OH model, it's 5'0 and has a great action. If jigging go short, far easier to work the jigs with. I have been using that rod paired with an Andros 5ii and it's certainly done the business. Sweet spot for me was jigs 250 gram to 300 gram. It has a ton of power ...

The other thing to add to what has already been mentioned is that the transducer projects as a cone, with a defined beam angle. Beam width depends on lots of things, like frequency and transducer model, but it's worth remembering that the whats on the screen can be quite a way from you depending on ...
