Still couple months it get everything organised, then shark hunting time!!05/08/2007 at 4:18 pm #8394

The Penn Slammer Liveliner reels also look nice. Never seen one in person.05/08/2007 at 9:43 pm #8396
On the subject of tackle, I see there’s a video on YouTube of people using a bazooka05/08/2007 at 9:50 pm #8397
I have seen that video several times.
I have seen a few youtube fishing videos but nothing which springs to mind.
There is a video of a bunch of idiots roaring down a river in a boat shotting a specie of jumping fish with Bows. People also like to post that video multiple times on fishing forums.
Doing a Google search of “Stupid RedNecks bow fishing video” would probably find it.05/08/2007 at 10:14 pm #8398

Mono is short for monofilament, Nylon is the fiber that the line is made of. mono just means it’s a single strand line. Most recreational fisherman call monofilament “Nylon” probly cause in the early days this is what monofilament was marketed as.
In our shop nylon as a fiber is also used in rope for anchoring and clothing etc.
It’s a funny one, most selling the line call it mono or monofilament and very one buying it calls it nylon.07/08/2007 at 5:00 pm #840108/08/2007 at 4:25 pm #8403
The Okuma baitrunners are a pretty tough reel too, have 2 of them and they haven’t failed to stop much yet.
Depends what type of sharks you are targetting, seven gillers can be caught on any half decent rod and reel set. The first one I ever caught was about 5ft long and landed on a jarvis walker combo that cost about $80.08/08/2007 at 6:20 pm #8404
what is copolymer?08/08/2007 at 8:46 pm #8405
basically a line made of two types of nylon, basically trying to get the best qualitites from each type. e.g fine diameter and abrasion resistance.09/08/2007 at 5:01 pm #8406

Does anyone know where I can get a good rod around 24kg and over 6 foot? Preferably a specialized LBG rod. The only places I have seen any are on trademe and they usually won’t ship to the South Island.04/09/2007 at 9:01 pm #8718
I did win an auction for a Offshore 700 LBG rod which is 7ft,
