Bob you are going to have a great time, great boat and yes you will be spoiled!stambob said:Thanks Jamie,i talked to Carol and booked a 5 dayer in mid Aug. This will be my first l.r. trip, and by the looks of things, i'm afraid i'm gonna be so spoiled that i may never again be happy on anything less.So, i may just make l.r. fishing my next bad habit. Bob
Maybe get a Baja Special....it will fish 50/60# back it wit 80# spectra and you are good to go IMO. or a Torque 300... both are star dragsstambob said:Yep, got the statroom we wanted too. This is gonna be great, i can't wait.I'm covered on all of the rigs except for the heavy stuff. What are the chances of needing bigger than 60LB.? I reserved a big setup, but may just buy one. I have the rod, but the reel is ,i think questionable. I have 2 Penn 114H special 6/0 senators, that i used on my boat for trolling, but after 2 fish, one of them jammed and i found that the screw that holds the clicker tab on the inside of the reel had come loose. I locktighted it in, but it makes me wonder and not trust the workmanship because i had problems on a brand new jigmaster also. I have an Avet for the 40 LB. class, but prefer star drags, so am thinking of a Saltiga for 60LB. Want to keep it in the mid price range.Seems i read something recently about kits for the 114's, Any recommendations? Thanks guys, Bob.
