    Re: 2006 Surf Striper's

    fished ocean beach with the mickey

    just so happens that at the time i arrived the birds were crashing close to shore. i rushed to cast out for nothing.

    all of a sudden i was in the midst of other mickey throwing dudes. they probably thought i was one of the cell phone crew. haha.

    water was too crazy to get any feel for the lure or even drag bottom.

    only a couple of guys were draggin a fish.

    i coudn't read the beach so i switched to grubbin

    The new 11'6 ghostfish custom *rod worked grate today....you can *load the it up on a cast, it seems it can handle the torque I put to it with no problem ......it seems anywhere in the 2 3/4 to 3 1/2 .oz is ideal, metal or wood, ghostfish used a new kind of eye's on the stick so if I want I can take the spinning reel off and go with a conventional reel.....as far as the new reel......it's the Diawa Powersurf 5000QD it also performed perfect today, it laid the braid down very nice, smooth drag and also held up to a dunking in the suds.........I fished Pacifica today with Topshelf and Fisssh, *water was crappy, with a 20mph wind gusts,saw some bird activity 1/4 mile out, one fishermen fishing with bait beached a nice 15.lb'er that was it........back out tomorrow. 8-)

    Re: 2006 Surf Striper's

    Just got back from the surf, fished with Double_D and Topshelf. DD's new rod is SWEET! [smiley=clap.gif] He even let me try it a few casts, [smiley=thumbsup.gif] it's much to nice for him. I doubt he will be able to break this one unless he rigs up 2 Mickeys in tandem and puts all his weight [smiley=yikes.gif] behind it any thing is possible [smiley=tasman.gif]

    On a serious note, has there been any kind of striper activity [smiley=angling.gif] or is it still all ugly water? [smiley=jumpinggroup.gif] Gonna head out to Ocean Beach and Pacifica shortly and explore. [smiley=captjack.gif] [smiley=fishing1.gif]

    I see another 3pc rod on the horizon ;D ;D ;D ;D :P :-*
    If Double_D turns that Rod into a 3piece instead of 2, i'd give him one of my Fixter's ;)[/quote]
    Better pick one out now, it's only a matter of time. [smiley=angling.gif][/quote]

    Should someone start taking dates for the pool? ;D Everyone puts a plug into the pot and the person who gets closest to the day the 2 piece is converted to the 3 piece wins the pot ;D.

    Seriously, I hope the rod holds up. I know how it feels to have a rod break. This will also be the worst case torture test for the Rainshadow anbd if they work it right, Batson Enterprises may be able use DD as advertising for the durability of their rods :)
