    Anyone Have A Full Cork Handle St. Croix Ltb?

  •   This one has a FULL cork handle, which is why I bid on it.   I know the St. Croix website has discontinued LTBs, but all they have left is the 6'6" MH casting rod, and I wanted a 7 footer. I believe the blank has been upgraded twice since the full grips wre taken out of the line up. The newer blanks are more responsive and obviously lighter in weight and use a better set of guides.

how to start up on sea fishing?

Dear yahoo's i wanted to know how to start up on SEA fishing, i am planning to learn some stuff on the internet and books but would like some advice, so first off what sort of sea fishing rod and reel is recommended for beach fishing and what sort of hook would be useful for general catch? so ok, i am going to my fishing shop next week and i would like a somewhat list of what i would need to start catching fish at the beach, that includes what will go into my gear box? pls be decent answers and not nasty comments as im only wanting to learn


If fishing from the shore : you would use one of two outfits. If walking along throwing jigs or whatever a 7' one piece rod with like 12 - 15 pound test is fine. That would be a typical spinning rod, with a 4/0 size reel. Or a surf fishing rod, if bait fishing. That would be a huge outfit. 10 - 12 foot multi piece rod with a huge 5/0 or 6/0 reel on it. This is suitable for sharks even. Which do frequent the shore line. In general the most used outfit would be a 7' one piece heavy action spinning rod, and reel. and use LIVE bait, Shrimp are simple to use, and bait fish are good for a beginner. Watch what you buy at a tackle shop. They will sell you all kind of stuff, most of which you don't need and will never catch a fish on. Just tackle box filler you soon will not even carry around. Reading material ? I always suggest this little kindle book a guy who came here to my home found. It is called Florida Saltwater Fishing Beginners Guide. It has done great for the people who come here. Now do be assured, it depends greatly WHERE you are going t fish. It may be very different if your speaking of fishing in your country compared to the east coast or west coast of the U.S. Edit : a medium action 7' rod is not tough enough for anything but catching bait. If really fishing a heavy action 7' or 8' rod is one that will act as if it was a larger rod then it is and still be easy on your wrist if casting allot. Edit : I missed this part. From a boat, of course we call the rod, A BOAT ROD. Kinda clever. Those are often a 7' heavy rod that has some tip action, just a little more bend at just the tip of the rod. And often a Penn level wind reel on it. 30 - 50 pound line. A 3/0 or 4/0 reel on the boat rod is fine. And for fishing reefs and wrecks, we would have a " meat rod " . These are an incredible sight to freshwater fishermen. Short 4 or 5' rods much like a broom handle, with a huge 9/0 to 12/0 reel with turn buckles

Are you talking about surf fishing? If you are you want to get a good reel look at shimano reels and maybe a st.croix rod 10' are the most common but 8'-10' would work to. As far as tackle goes get some poppers and metals. And put Braided line on your reel. Your Local Shop will be very helpful because they know the area well and what to use.

Thats a very broad question, I could give you the name of hundreds of fishing equipment but not all of it will work until you know what fish your going after. Find out what fish you want to target and then you can find out what lures or baits to use, what size rod, hooks, where and when to fish them etc. Are you fishing from the shore or from a pier? Please edit back, you will get a lot more answers.

Beach or surf fishing would require a rod of at least 7 feet long and the reel should be able to hold at least 20 lb.test line,now that is the measurements here in the USA,but where you live,metric is the standard,so you'll have to convert them to your's,a rod 3 metres would be good,and line would be 10 kilos strong for beach fishing,you'll catch flounders,or sole there,and possibly cod too,so fish on the bottom with a high/low rig,the sport shop will guide you as to what you should have tackle wise. Penn make some fine gear for this fishing,and you can find it online,or at a local shop,hopefully.You'll need some various hooks and several sizes of weight and rigs to get the bait out there into the deeper water where the fish are,practice your casting,and also learning how to tie the knots is very important.You'll have to research the habits of the fish you are after,where they will likely be,like on sand,or around the rocks.This will help you catch them if you undetrstand where they hang out.

The best way would be to find someone to take you fishing and that way you can learn a lot quicker. A lot depends on what sort of pier or beach fishing you can do in your area. A rod suitable in Plymouth may not be suitable in Cromer for example. Try joining a local club to find someone. Have a look at WSB website and study some Youtube clips. Good luck http://www.wsbtackle.com/
Mrbill | Dec 22, 2012
if you are surf fishing, the shop will have the best for your area. Including hooks and rigs. They want you to catch fish and come back for more. So bad info or equipment is bad for business. If you are off shore fishing, suggest you get on a head boat or charter boat. Can see whats being used and what works. Saves a lot of wasted money. Have fished the eastern seaboard and not many use the same exact equipment or rigs. Get your info local is best.

Advanced Custom Rod Building

Creator: Dale P. Clemens | 2008-04-01

Many of us who build rods have been approached over the years by fishermen who want us to build them a longer casting-rod handle, or who want us to make them something that fits their hand better, or to fashion a handle with a large ...

About this book
Sometimes a certain book becomes so important in its field that it is considered to be the bible of the subject. So it is with Dale P. Clemens’s Advanced Custom Rod Building, the book that sent American fishermen back to their workshops. Noting practically and philosophically that a rod is an “extension of the angler’s hand,” Clemens encourages every fisherman to have a rod that is customized for his or her grip and casting style.Clemens explains all of the general principles necessary for making tackle that is superior to anything off the rack, and provides exhaustive figures, illustrations, and tables for the experienced custom builder who wants to fish the perfect rod for his own hand. He shares invaluable advice on how to build rods of every kind, from ultra-light to heavy surf, how to choose (and make) the best blanks, seats, handles, grips, and guides, and how to finish and seal rods to make them as handsome and durable as possible.Stunningly detailed and thorough, Advanced Custom Rod Building is a complete guide to building a fisherman’s most essential tool and an indispensable companion for any serious angler.

1897 Sears Roebuck & Co. Catalogue

Creator: Skyhorse Publishing | 2007-09-01

We have looked over a great many lines of fishing rods and have endeavored to procure only those that are made of the best quality woods and finished ... Nickel mounted, silk wound tie guides, solid reel seat, new enameled grip, metal plugs.

Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing Inc.

About this book
Imagine it’s the end of the nineteenth century, and, with one catalog, you can buy everything from beds and tools to clothing and opium. (Yes, opium.) Not to mention ear trumpets, horse buggies, and Bibles. The 1897 Sears, Roebuck & Co. Catalogue is both a wonderfully fascinating collector’s item and a valuable piece of American history. For every recognizable item included, there are plenty of others guaranteed to confuse or interest  21st century readers—like Bust Cream or Food and Sweet Spirits of Nitre. What was once standard household fare is today a sometimes strange, often funny look at what life was once like for the average American family. It’s amazing to see that a Princely Shirt for Princely Men cost $0.95 or three for $2.75 or that a Complete Violin Outfit (with bow and case) cost only $2.00.

This review is from: Maurice Sporting Goods FLY-1 Fishing Rod Fly Swatter (Sports) This looks like a sturdy fly swatter upon first impression. After using just a short time and a hard swat the head came off. It did not stand up to a hard swat which is necessary to kill a fly. Wish they could perfect it as the handle is sturdy but the head flies off. I was disappointed with the product. Cheap fly swatters do a better job. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 28, 2012

It comes with a "heavy" rubber piece to tie on the line so he can cast. It has been perfect. It casts well and does not hang up right out of the box. He has learned to cast and can throw it a good distance.
