    Sold / Closed Closed

    Great seller, shipped the reels fast and they were better than described condition!! Thanks again!
  2. I am looking for at least one Shimano Charter 2000 reel and would consider buying 3 if the price was right. Please let me know what you have. (I saw that I just missed out on 4 that Hookmeup sold). Thank you Terry
  3. Steeliesteve, TunaToms reel repair told me the same exact thing they told him, they said they used to offer carbon fiber but they did not think the surface area was sufficient and that they only offer OEM drag washers. I bought enough to rebuild my six reels. I also performed the Penn carbon fiber drag rebuild that I posted a link to and have been happy with the results. Other options I have researched but do not have experience with are: Smooth drags sells an Extreme Smoothie for a 50H which from my research is the same drag pack. I am not affiliated with any of these mfg's in any way.

    First Copper Rod???'s

    Thanks guys for the recommendation of weighted steel. You recommended 350' is that a 300' spool of weighted line 50' of 19 strand and braid backer to fill spool? I see torpedo only has 200 and 300' spools. Terry
  6. The Diawa 50H is also the same drag pack as the 47LC one more place to look.Here is one of the links, there are a few. http://alantani.com/index.php?topic=13748.0
  7. You should google Alan Tani he rebuilds reels and his website has step by step pictures on how to do it. I too received the same answer from Tuna Tom and found this site which uses Penn drag washers they improved my reels significantly. They even have the part numbers listed Terry Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Hey guys I have been holding off adding copper to the mix for the past three years getting the dipsy diver program dialed in. I have been running large boards for years mainly top linies for browns and added lead core about three years ago. I now have a few general and more specific questions and would appreciate any help. I picked up a Penn 340 reel recently and will be spooling it up with copper. I figured I should use 45# but I see that 32# has about the same curve. Is the 45# the one I want? One additional factor, I have 2 Okuma 45's set up with LC and may change over to 32# Copper if I like running copper. Should I stick to one # rating on the boat or is it ok to run some runs 32# and other 45# because of the similar depth curves? Also I see different mfg I hear good things about several but hear/read mostly about Blood Run. Is Blood run a good choice for a first time copper user? I do not plan on running this out of the chute because of the layout of my boat so it will be dedicated to large board use (Super Ski's). I was thinking of 400' putting me at 65-95' depending on speed, current, bait etc. Will I have problems pulling 400' with the super ski's? Also is 400 a good 1st rod or should I look at 300 for the first (Not able to run out of chute so will always be fully deployed) If anyone knows of a backing/copper/leader length for the reel I would appreciate suggestions there too. Thanks Terry

    Iso tracks and rod holders

    Hung, This is Terry (Robs buddy) I have a very similar boat. I would suggest thinking about a good layout for your boat before buying some tracks. You want to have an idea of how your set up is going to work best for your boat and what your plans are to fish with it. It is better to have more track then you think you will need because you may find yourself adding things later without the added cost of more track. It also gives you the ability to move things around a bit to adjust your spread. I currently have three sections of track along each side of the boat for a total of 66" on each side. First a 36" track along each side of the boat towards the back the rigger is all the way back then weight holders then three ratcheting rod holders easily. Next I have an 18" section midship for three planer board rod holders on each side. Finally I have a 12" section on each side for net holders and cup holders, etc. If you wanted to stop by to check it out let me know. Your boat looks great, you will love the Lund.

    Thoughts on Flat Bottom nets

    Thanks Shawn, how are they holding up? It seems like the net material is a little lighter duty than the poly net would be.
  13. Ok so I just ordered two new Ranger nets for the boat one for salmon 34X30 and one for trout 25X25. I made sure they were hook free nets when I ordered them. I did not realize they were flat bottom. After doing some reading they are supposed to support the fish better and keep it "calm". Does anyone have these bags on your nets or do you run the more traditional net with a coating? Below is Rangers description. Ranger Flat Bottom Replacement Net #2525FB 25" x 25" Hoop size 30" Depth (measurements are taken before attaching to hoop) 24" deep after it's put on hoop Hook free, knotless Rubber coated nylon - lighter weight Flat bottom replacement net Directions on how to change net is on the package 5/8" Black mesh Made for walleye & salmon Very popular flat bottom This is the replacement net for Ranger's #491, 978 or 9788 hoop UPC 080785004202 #2525FB
