With the weight on, I usually run just enough drag to gain when the fish isn't running. It's really tough to explain and rationalize, just have to try it yourself. It's a blast. Love this type of...

IMO, and this is just my opinion, you can feel what the fish is doing and avoid just heating up the drag by spinning the motor against a slipping drag. This happens on the old single speed LP's with...

I should also mention, they do really strange things. Our last one decided about 150 ft from the boat it was going to run at the props. Line went slack and we thought we lost them. Thank god I...

1) Florida can be very different than other parts of the USA. You deal with a lot of current there and weights of 10-15 lbs are not uncommon. If you need to fish 12 or more, that's probably a day you...

When you weigh the two options:

Semi-auto: Works just fine in a clay/upland setting but a little heavier and not "as cool", Like a fish in water field goose hunting.

My current and last trailer had them on the back. They are far superior to a front lubed hub or one with a bearing buddy. Little bit of a PITA to get behind the wheel but they are nice because in...

Hugely disagree on this. The reason the Bimini shines over the Spider is because it has shock absorption. HST with a 100 lb wahoo crushing the lure at 14 kts with 25-30 lbs of drag? That's about as...

I disagree. I find the bimini very easy to tie with braid and a way better knot for that application. To each their own though.

What headboat and where are you running out of? If it's NJ, both major headboats running deep drop for tiles have fully stocked shops with lead.

That's ideal. Congrats on the sword. I knew they were up there. Deep too which is interesting.

I would literally give a finger or two for one of those. Probably would only see action for honkers and snows, but still...awesome guns. I hear the Remington 10 is pretty good too.

I prefer served connections but that goes out the window when you're working with solid braid. For example, my daytime sword combo is 70# solid core. I use a bimini there for the wind on leader loop.

I personally don't trust it as much for braid. It used to be my old go-to for mono double line.

With braid, the Bimini is MUCH easier to tie than it is with mono. The only part that's hard is...

I prefer the custom deep drop weights made for swordfishing. I believe "Sportfish Tackle" makes them. I like them because they're thinner profile which helps them drop a little quicker. In addition,...

Entirely subjective but:

Ability to shoot 3.5" (not necessary but nice), a good choke system, ability to accept 3 or more rounds (5 of 3" is nice when you take the plug out). OU's are out no...

On land? Black bears, coyotes, and maybe a bobcat although they don't seem to be an issue. Snakes we have copperheads and eastern diamondbacks in the far northwest of the state. Spiders we have black...
