Re: Number of rods - question.

By definition the fines were correct. But 99% of the time the extra rigged rods are overlooked because officers know you can't cast 2 lures at once, or have watched the 2/4 rods out for the previous 5 minutes soaking baits.

PPB always used Silstar Crystal Blue Powertip 701swm with a Shimano Tr200g. WP always was Ugly Stik GB-1706 with Charter Specials. Granted the reels are larger than what you...

Re: First boat - $5k budget

$5k I'd be getting the biggest, newest open tinny I could find in the best nick. 2 quintrex 4.2m dory wide bodies on boat sales listed under $6k, one with a Yamaha 2 cylinder premix 30hp the other with a Suzuki 30hp.

Re: tackle management

Buy a bag. Buy a crate, make a rack, whatever. Buy a dymo label maker. Place rack/crate/whatever at home. Buy as many 3700 sized tackle trays as you need for the species you fish for.

Re: Food for thought

It depends on how the survey question was worded as to how skewed the data is. I've had a similar survey with a similar open ended question where it was implied that recreational fishers still had access to c&r fish within no take zones, yet when actually looking at the information in full it showed...

Re: Braid - Strands

The higher strand counts create a rounder profile line. The difference between 4v8v12v16 strand counts is more pronounced in thicker higher breaking strain lines where a 4 strand count can appear almost flat to the eye at certain angles of the braiding. Lines like fireline aren't actually a braid, b...
