Is 10# braid too light for these guys, in your collective opinions?
I know it is , I'm a 20lb every thing because the diameter is about 6lb ( Ohero braid ) so it gives me plenty of casting power paired w/ strength 30 fluoro leader , double uni on the knot & before the presentation or Egg is a barrel swivel ( 40 lb )is a must .
What I like to do is buy an extra spool w/ a different color braid so I know the difference between the strength = Blue 20lb / Green 10lb as an example.

And being at the right time & place with these moving fish is luck If your not on a boat

I'll be up R.I next weekend w. Capt Ray Stachelek ( fly ) & will do a beach before the charter . Who knows where they will be ?

I posted a similar question in the Tropical Storm thread, but what positive opportunities does Florence bring?


I'm an Arborist, so I have a professional take and stake on that question, too.

Thanks, HookI. That's a sound recommendation. 20 lb with 30 lb leader. Check!

I have a Penn Battle II 3000, and would like to start carrying a spare spool, ready to go if I need to change or replace line. Is there an easy or smarter way accomplish that. I saw a site called Replacement Parts for Anything. com, that can sell me a Spool Assembly for $21 or so. Is this what I need?

Bay, those are beauties! What size hooks are you using?
It looks like some sleeve material that you've epoxied over for the bodies, with feather trailers. Is that right?

That's the site I have used , its good , I don't use Penn reels but I would order the spare spool only with a model , serial #, match it up . 3000 is nice size reel all around. Just change the spool when necessary , easy .

The first hook is a size 2 and the body material is called EZbody, the second is a 1/0 Hook with something called a Fishskull.

BTW, this weather is NOT conducive to reaching albies from the shore.


Need it to settle down, then after a few days it could be game on.

The Hook looked great this noontime with the tide running and the spearing skittering allover the place. No gamefish of any kind even with 8 or 10 guys trying. I will try again but probably not until after the coming weather bruhaha.
