    Nice post, John.

    Clever replies too!

    I bet if you threw that lure into breaking stripers it would work.

    Thank you for the follow-up report and the Eddyline review.

    I'm glad you had some pullage and that Andrew had a successful shakedown cruise with his new boat.

    John clarified the action ratings of rods well and as others here have noted a fast action rod is probably the best all around rod for trolling. I use medium-light weight rods with fast tips when...

    I've caught only a couple of specks here in MD because I rarely fish the southern Bay. But in FL they are common and I've caught many.

    Congrats on the speck. That indeed is unusual for Ft .Smallwood.

    And large stripers swimming with the perch are a blast. They test your tackle and your skill to get them to the kayak.

    Nice catch, John.

    What's fun about catfish on lures is that I suppose bait anglers targeting them fully expect that heavy powerful feeling of a channel cat on the ends of their lines. But when we...

    Stan,

    Absolutely, catfish hit lures.
