Re: Which types of hooks do you prefer J, circle, offset, ka

It was blowing straight in to the basin where I...

Re: Surf Spikes

When I get back from my little trip I may try putting some up for auction.I was thinking of putting them up in pairs.And have them be around 5 feet long.I will have to find out where the shipping cost jumps at. It is somewhere around 5 feet but I'm not sure.

Re: Port Mansfield Texas report Sun 22nd

Well I always like to give reports that tell what I was thinking, what i saw, felt, heard and went on during the trip. Not just the standard " caught this on that at this place" report. A fishing report should tell a story not just the end result. Yes that is the Fina that i won on this site.I figur...

Re: Surf Spikes

If you put them in the ground far enough they will stay.Your drag should go off or the line break before they pull out. I make my own PVC spikes and if they are used in sand I have a trick to setting them deep in the ground.
