Re: Fishing Reports for the rest of 2018
Most rod blanks will surprise you with their power... not like yesteryear.
IMO the bigger issue is having the right reel, at least on the open beach. Good drag, good leader and terminal setup and you can do well.
I definitely met my match on the sand a month ago with that shark, but for striped ones, again open sand, you should have no trouble.
I'm more a pool stick guy when it comes to turning something near danger(rocks, pilings etc)
