Default New to Tile Fishing. Have questions on electric reels,etc.

I'm trying to determine the differences between the Tanacom Bull TB750 and the Tanacom Bull 750fe. Likewise, the Tanacom Bull TB1000 and Tanacom Bull 1000fe. Any info would sure be appreciated.
Several months ago my fishing club, Penn Jersey Saltwater Anglers (PJSA.org) brought in a terrific speaker to talk to us about Tilefishing. He was amazing and sure captured my attention. At the end of the session I felt committed to try it. I'm trying to gather the right kind of equipment to participate in this fishery. Inasmuch as I've had three major back operations, I'm trying to obtain a good electric reel which would perform well and be a reliable addition to my tackle.
The most common electric reel I've seen for sale has been the Daiwa Mdls 750 and 1000 but each of those models are available in both the TB and fe series. I'd like to get some definitive info on these reels.
As far as a fishing rod I have a number of Penn International 11 rods some 5 1/2' long and some 6' long. Most are in the 50 to 80 lb. class with a few on the heavier side. All have Aftco Roller guides. I intend to buy interchangable bent butts to interchange with the straight butts currently on the rods.
Any advice/guidance would sure be appreciated. If any of you kind readers would be willing to give me some numbers on good Tilefishing spots I'd be very greatful.
I fish out of Little Egg Inlet, New Jersey which is located about 39.50 North and fish several Canyons, i.e. Spencer 38.36N, Lindenkohl 38.47N, and Carteret 38.54N.

I fish these waters for tiles and the best advice I can give you is the following:

- You do not need electric reels. Save yourself some $$

- Stop by The Reel Seat tackle shop in Brielle and speak with Dave the owner. He knows tiles cold! Listen to him. If you need some new tackle for tiles, he has it all. Take a look at the Shimano Talica II speed reels. Very nice.

- One tip I will give you regarding bait: Tiles love bluefish!

How deep of water to you catch them in there. We catch them in 600+ feet of water here, and electrics are a must for fat out-of-shape guys like us.

Generally where I fish its 250 to 600 feet. There are deeper spots on the edge but I have not had to go that deep. I will admit it can get tiring especially if there is more current (which = more lead) but most of the old-school Tile fish guy's here frown on electrics.

Any part of the blue fish in particular?

I recommend the Tanacom Bull 1000. They are great reels when loaded with 80 to 130# Braid. Since you've had back problems I'd suggest a short bent butt rod with a swivel tip. I also have a swivel that drops into the rod holder. You never need to remove the rod from the holder. I'll try to find a link and post for you.

Which type of tile are you fishing for? Bluelines (or grey) live in 250-350 feet of water and are 5-15 lbs average. No need for electrics if this is your target. Goldens are much deeper....500-900 feet in the mid atlantic to NE canyons. There is where the electrics certainly help, particularly when the Capt says pull em up we are moving and you have crank up 2-3 lbs of lead. What we like to do is use the electrics when we are prospecting for new holes. Then when we find the fish, we go willy style and crank. Nobody seems to mind cranking when there is a fish on but it really sucks to crank when there is nothing but your lead.

I don't really know all the differences in the reels but I do have the Tanacom Bull TB1000 and it will get the job done for sure.

Here is the link for the rod swivels.

They are simple and bullet proof.

LOL ..... I hear you guys. I think the same thing after pulling-up three fish. Then I hand the rod to someone else. I never said traditional thinking was the smartest !

I guess I should modify my position:

Landing the fish by hand = Cool
Checking your bait by hand = Not Cool

I use these rods with my TB1000s.

Get John to add a swivel tip for you.


I have really enjoyed the setup.
