- is taking Pre-orders for March right now.
I see the "southerners" actually .....GIT IT!
On Yeah. When I get one, it's gonna be my personal Tarpon /Giant Redbass / Shark / Offshore jiggin' reel.
I have 4 of this reels cousin, the Shimano 300 DSV
, the 1st editions. And as far as LOW PRO reels (egronomically correct for casting and all day fishing with a large capacity, high speed retrieve in a non-corrosive package) They are mega sweet!
Why don't I come over there in the fall, with my Shimano trans X
, and a Curado 300 DSV
, and we'll go out and wack us some mangroves on some rigs, and a Tarpon at the pass...... I'll do all the video!!!
The BIG Mullet should be thick then.
Yeah, I was watching that dude Babe Winkleman on the TV, who's always holding a insulated mug (full of bourbon and Coke?).
He was up in Alaska with his wife an daughter (wow, she's really grown up..."Boom, baba, Boom")
They were King Salmon trolling on a charter boat on Kodiak Island, using what looked to be beat ole Penn Squiders or Penn graphite reels, non-levelwind. I could see as they reeled in these fish they run a bit, but not all that hard. And the drags were JERKIN' all over. I hate that. They were in a seemingly really nice Munson Cat. With all that BIG $$ up yonder they could really BENEFIT from some smooth dragged, mega HIGH speed, reels like these in Question.
Trolling for salmon question: "how many ball bearing swivels does it take to keep the leader from twisting up like a rats nest, while "Purposely Making" the bait (herring) spin like a propeller?"
