Found a deal I couldn’t pass up on a pair of these. Lever drags are cool.
Let’s see what y’all got. Rods, reels, lures, tools, pretty much everything this sub forum is for.
I wasn’t expecting to see something as eclectic as that, but all the power to you. There are many methods out there for catching fish. At the end of the day, if it adds to your enjoyment of fishing, that’s all that matters.As a Died in wool troller and the lakes in my SW Mich local being for the most part pissy ass clear water bodies of water with weed lines out as far as 20 fow. Line length on the troll has to be very exact. Reeling in fouled lures can be a real pain. I have switch my 5 trolling rods with various strengths of braided line, sometimes out 140 ft, over to Daiwa's electric assisted reels. Oh what a relief that has been. As the HOF baseball announcer Red Barber said "Sitting in the catbird seat" Fishing now is absolute joy. No more 'Troller wrist" or " Spoonplugger shoulder" Pricey sure! but so are big motors and electronic equipment. I will never go back to hand cranking weeds and/ or fish in.
The 5 reels are loaded with 1 reel 10lb braid, 2 reels with 20 lb braid 1 Reel with 80lb braid and for really deep presentations 1reel 20lb monel stainless wire
The Leobritz 500SJ I use with 20 LB braid , 80 LB Braid and 20 LB Monel Stainless Steel wire

Since I started using this equipment I think of them as fish catching machines.
Lever Drags Yes they are cool! My 1 st experience with Lever Drags was just off Biscayne Bay Sail fishing 2/27/20.
No trolling planned for these guys. I'm filling out my sturgeon spread.Lever Drags Yes they are cool! My 1 st experience with Lever Drags was just off Biscayne Bay Sail fishing 2/27/20.
Easy to operate and very efficient. We were Kite trolling cigar minnows and other live bait The process is fairly labor intensive keep the baits in water rolling thru the swells. Lever Drag system is the only way that Kite trolling would be possible. I think You will really like the Lever drag especially for the trolling you do.
Running six lines with 3 off of each Kite line Great experience for sure.
LOL Yeah it's a truck. I use them accordingly but all the trucks I have ever owned get a heavy rubber bed mat and a tailgate cover. I'll own this truck a very long while. May be the last one I ever buy?? Common sense protection for me. YMMVTailgate protector? What’s that. Thought you bought a truck.
Awesome! Cant wait for the reports!
