Let Me N on your thoughts
just got a new rod off ebay . its about 5'6'' heavy action(saltwater rod) do you think it will be ok for boat fishing..
Welcome to the BOC!!!
who makes it and what kind of reel does it have, or are you putting on it?
i also bought a osprey open face reel for it ..it doesent realy say who makes it all it says is tiburon stick( &specs) 1 piece rod.. i want to put a nice large open face reel on it but i dont know many brands that make reels large enuff to hold 25 lb test...i found the osprey on ebay also ...but i havent heard alot of good things about the osprey brand
thanks 4 the welcome..... jus trying 2 find a good outfit for a boat in swift waters ...wanting 2 get in2 the 30-50 lb range so i thought id need a rod that big.....
You can find many nice reels by clicking on our sponser catfish connection at the top of the page.
why isnt the username typed in english? huh?
:glare: its typed n english ...its just a little fancy ....sorry
It's all what you feel comfortable with. I have a 10' Condor South Bend rod with a Goliath South Bend reel on it with electrical tape as a backing. Then it's spooled with 600' 65# test Tuf-line (braided). I then put a 3-8 ounce no roll and heavy barrel swivel on the main line then attach a 18-30" 40# test mono leader with a snelled 5-10/0 circle hook. Then I bait this with shad gut packs and heads. This rig in my home made PVC pole holder works extremely well for most bank fishing. For fishing on the boat I use similar rigs but they are only 7'6" rods.
thankz 4 tha input...im wanting 2 go with a nice built /strong/ spinning reel
jus cant seem 2 find any ...i also want 2 make another combo with a 8'0 uglystick/& a spincast reel...jus dont know the spincast reel either....can yall help me?
I haven't used spin cast in a long time but my favorite back then was the Zebco 888.
Hate to promote them but , if you have a wallmart near by try the sporting goods section and look for reels on the wall. Shakespeare has many spincast reels available that will hold 25lb line. They carry more than shakespeare you might even find a good mitchell reel which is what I have and works great. Just remember you don't have to spend alot of money to have good fishing gear I am a prime example of this.
thanx 4 tha input .....ill be checking my local wal/k mart& sporting goods stores...
