Geeze, and my wife thinks I am crazy and I only have six (a seventh will be born shortly).
Have Jeep will travel.
By the way Wilber, AI really is beautiful February and March, just a tad chilly. If Crabboy hadn't made his whimp comment about "cold weather" fishing and outfishing me 40 - 1, and anyone can catch a striper (basically saying it AIn't real fishing)personally I'd only drive the beach that time of year, stop and make a couple of casts maybe, but look and learn mostly.
Shag dog i think u have some sorta thing for me mentioning me in every single one of your posts...want me to send u a nude photo? >>>rofl! anyway i got 4 do 8-10' Ofshore Angler rods count as surf rods, cuz thats what i have.
Glad ya didn't ask how many I've bought in my feeshn' career. I have six primary,a backup for each and 4 ol'treasures.I'm always lookin fer sumpin that might work better though(and have my eye on two).........now dont ask about lures cause I gotem from the first one I bought.Never seen a lure I didnt like ...the R
1-12 ft OM
1-9 ft Team Diawa
1-8'6 Key largo trout rod(my all time favorite rod!)
1-7'6 Quantum(got her on sale @ SA,cork grip,nice and lite weight)
1-7ft Team Daiwa
1-7ft ultra lite tackle Shimano rod(basically my bait rod)
Total:10 too many rods(that's what the misses calls them)
The 7 footers altenate as inshore boat rods,and rods that I take fishin @ piers(bottom fishing)and ledges(the Great Kneck Bridge).
So that's my inventory.But for reels...that's another post
8 surf rods, 12 casting rods (freshwater) 28 reels, 300 fresh water lures. and more.
I did not buy all of this it was inherited when my dad (an avid bass fisherman) died.
Would you believe that none of it has been used sinc April of last year. Counting work, medical problems I havae not had th e time. Just remember two more months til spring.
Orest, I do take a lot of kid surf fishing. They can use any rod on the truck except MY Trout rod, all my kids have their own Trout rods and I have 3 loaners.
Nsearch, Nice start to a killer collection.
Smoothbore 54, We are normal.
Sandcrab, I agree. I never fish more than 2 rods, But you have to have a rod for everything. Thr rack on the truck holds 8 and I put 4 inside. Let me try to explain.
I have a rod that throws 8&bait perfectly, a rod for 5oz, 4oz. 3oz and 2oz. Then I have a Mirrolure rod, a half oz grub rod and a three quarter oz grub rod. In the 2 oz range I have a Team Daiwa 7 two handle and a one handle. In the 3oz range I have a metal rod and a bait rod and a lond distance 10 Interline. In the 4oz range Interline 11fter, Team Daiwa 11fter, a 10 that really likes 4 and a 5wiegh Team Daiwa 11fter for bigger baits.
Anyway, I won't go on, but you get the idea. Every rod does something perfectly, so, you gotta have them all.
OH, and don't forget the loaner rods for folks that you don't trust with the "good stuff".
Yes, it is important to have them all. At least I think so.
