I'll keep this short, is it possible to go shark fishing with a ten-foot Shimano rod rated 5-8kg. I know ideally, it should be more like 20kg, however, I would assume that Shimano's quality would count for something and that they would suggest a lower capacity than its actual breaking point. cheers ?
Hi Guys, I would like to start to try out a bit of surf/rock fishing. Currently I have a 10"6 Wilson shoreline Rod and a 12" Wilson Live Fibre. I'm looking at getting a good reel for the 12" Wilson Live Fibre but I have a budget. I've done my research and almost narrow down to Shimano Saragosa sw10000 for $289 or Shimano Spheros sw10000 for $199. (unless if there's other suggestion for a better for value reel) Just would like to know what the experience fisherman would suggest as some says the Saragosa is only slight improvement than the Spheros and is not worth the extra dollar but some said it is as the material is better. Mainly I am hoping to target medium size fish like tailor, flathead, kings and jew. Should I go for the 10000 or would you guys recommend I go for the 6000 with higher gear ratio but less line capacity and reduced weight? Thanks in advance for the advice!
Hi all, I own a Shimano Sahara 2500fe and my drag sound is not working, I believe I have played around my drag clicker and I would like to know which direction it should be pointing and how it should look like for it to function properly. If someone can upload a picture of their sahara's drag clicker while its screwed onto their spool I would be more than grateful. I also believe I may need a new drag clicker.
Hi all, Thinking of buying a G loomis pro blue 15-30pd rod. Just want to no if anyone has owned this rod before and what do you rate it? Going to match it up with a stella 4000fe or a twin power 5000sw. Hope to hear your feedback! Thanks all.
