Thanks for all your info,. Yeah we are here and today is our last day to fish. I'm heading out in a few to try the casting technique you posted. I think I'm already doing this but the weight wasn't that far down. So we shall see what happens. I was just posting to see if my surf combos would even hold up to something big or if it was a waste of time. I'll probably upgrade some for next year. Any suggestions on reels that don't break the bank?In a previous post, you said you had "one more day in Florida" and wer having trouble casting your rods . . . http://www.pierandsurf.com/fishing-forum/showthread.php?127169-Help-me-with-my-rods
In this post, you are talking about going to Florida, as if you are not there yet . . . I'm confused.
For smaller Sharks, your Penn Defiance 25 LW should be fine BUT, if you hook something LARGE, all bets are off !
Tight Lines !
