Re: catching stingrays


You’ll catch the smaller ones on any tackle, my first ever one was on some $5 plastic jarvis walker reel although it would be one of the smaller ones I’ve caught. Baitrunners are perfect for general surfcasting and for rig etc but if we are talking preferred tackle I wouldn’t go out planning to catch a stingray which could be over 200kg on a baitrunner and 200 meters of 20lb line. It’s all about landing them not hooking them because all I ever hear about is the stingray that got away.
