Never really measured kinda of wet, deep and cold, but it's my guesstimate, tossing six or 8nbait. Never tried just tossig lead without a piece of bunker with it. Don't know though, figure one day I'll head to the footbal field, maybe 15 pound test, no 40 pound shock leader, and no bunker chunk just to see. Now, should I use 4, 5, 6 or 8 ounces of lead?
Now with the 50 pound shock leader, how much? I generally use about three rod lenghts (30 -35').
Now, if could only get a 20mph tailwind on AI instead of what seems the usual 15 - 20 noreaster, may just be able to get 125 - 150 yards with the ol' 8nbait (heck I am a little guy with no A$$, ask Hat, but he has seen my flip flops, but I can't find them now. Hat, you got my flops, I feel naked?).
I primarily use 11' rods. I use a shock leader that is generally 21'. That gives me about a 6' drop and 6' on the reel itself. I like the Suffix leader material. Seems the dia. is a tad smaller and its more limp that some of the others.
mark. if you cast 5 oz. on a football field, you better be throwing at a cornfield at the other end. from goalpost to goalpost is360ft. if i remember correctly, and i do, you have thrown over two times that distance. when you go into that cornfield, get a few ears for us.
maybe 100 yrds..
i had an electric boat set up and could run the line out as far as I wanted and drop it. I sold the setup to one of the kids in the neighborhood and he took it with him when he left. It was cool. You could hook the leader on the rear; run the boat out 150 to 200 yrds and drop the line. My wife's response was "men and their toys."
