Wondering if anyone has advice on best set up with spin cast equipment for fishing specs under birds. I was fishing the Cypremore Point Cove area with 'bait cast' equipment as I have always done in the past. I had made my cast shooting for distance as to not spook the fish by getting too close with the boat. Wind was blowing just a bit and I experienced several 'professional overruns' (lol). There were other fisherman fishing the same set of birds, but I noticed 2 guys had 'spin cast' setups with what looked like 7.5 ft rods. I just know those guys were casting a mile compared to my bait cast rig. They were hauling in specs on almost every cast as there corks were landing right on top of the fish
. If anyone has experience with spin cast set ups that they like, I'd appreciate some tips...I'm trying to find out line brand & size, spinning reel & rod details if possible. I tried to 'search' on this site, but was not successful. Thanks in advance for any helpful information.
Just a heads up for anyone heading out to Toledo Bend any time soon...my brother-in-laws sons and friends just called to let us know that all of the boats parked under the floating boat dock at Bridge Bay Resort were hit by theives last night. All rods, tackle or anything not tied down were stolen. Even heard where there was a boat missing. I had read recently where some of this stuff was going on. Just didn't think a lit up boat dock, with all of the people that stay there, could get hit without someone seeing something. I was planning on meeting those guys tomorrow morning, but they are all heading back home this morning, since they were staying at Bridge Bay and lost all of there gear. Watch your stuff...somebody out there want's it too.
Just trying to find out if anyone has had the opportunity to launch out of Rollover or Joseph's Harbor.....I would like to check it out tomorrow morning, but not sure if it's been opened up yet since Gustav. Now that Ike appears to be moving towards "Trout Death", it might be my chance to get out and catch a few fish on my day off. No offense Trout Death, but you are "Offensive"...especially with your "bird" post that showed our area as the target for Ike....Oh yea, if that was just your sense of humor....not funny !!!!!
Off my soapbox,
Just wondering....any word on Pecan Island..specifically, Joseph's Harbor Launch ??? I was looking to get out of the house tomorrow morning, but not quite sure yet where to launch??? I know before the storm, there was a restriction to limit launching at J Harbor on Sept 3rd before 10:00 because of alligator harvesting restrictions.......any information would be appreciated...........thanks !!!
