Hi Andy, I don't know anything about these reels at all and they may be fine. However, I tend to be wary of buying cheap reels as you usually get what you pay for. The second hand market may be a better place to look for a reel and i would focus on Penn gt series or if you are looking to spend less ...

'I did buy a, abu Suveran xp due to the tides, but it was ott by a mile and the complete opposite. Without exaggerating, i caught a 2lb bass last summer with it, and didnt even know it was on there till i reeled in to change my bait. I then felt it pulling on the end, but it didnt register while the...

I had the same problem when I started using multipliers specifically Abu 6500's. In those days with the type of rods and more importantly the fixed spool reels available, multipliers were the only way to go. As eccles said fixed spool reels have improved and teamed up with long (14-16') rods they ar...

I have the Suveran sport that I think was replaced by the green Hellbender. The build and fittings on the Suveran are 1st class: I have had mine for quite a few years now and use it for cod and dog fishing. It is still in gr8 condition and has not needed any whipping or eyes replaced. It is a powerf...

You could do worse than the Daiwa Longbeam (14') as it can cast a long way and I witnessed it pulling in an 8lb cod through kelp. I used the rod myself for flattie fishing and was very impressed with the distances achieved. I wouldn't give it a full pendelum but with this rod you don't have to as si...

Hi Adam and welcome to the forum. The info you were given was correct, there are a lot of seatrout in the Forth but I am not sure if they are still in the lower reaches or have moved upstream to spawn. However I know of a man who can tell you. If you pop into Mikes tackle in Portobello one of the gu...

Re: what new rod

Hi Members Just been going through some of the postings about Rods. My question is. HAS a new rod improved your fish catching ability ? What do you class as the best beach rod and why ? Never mind distance maker or colour of rod. HAS a new rod improved your fish catching ability When I bought my Zi...

No problem I am quite happy to post about other peoples successes :( . Actually I was quite pleased as it was fishhunters first shore cod as he has only recently taken up the sport. I think it will be the first of many this season as the signs are looking good. There was a couple of double figure fi...

cod

Had a day out cod fishing yesterday in the NE. Three of us fished and 4 cod were landed. Two tiddlers by me and a fish of 7-8 lb and another of 3-4lb by my buddies. I did lose a good fish in the kelp and am seriously thinking of buying a Daiwa longbeam ( see other post in sea fishing rods). More eas...

Hi Steve,
So it was you I saw on the news fishing a pennel rig in Stoney high st.
We are heading up Arbroath way tomorrow will let you know how we get on. Thought about going further up but reckoned south of Arbroath would be the only area not affected by floodwater.

Floundering around again

Had another go on the East Lothian beaches again yesterday and this time there were no pin coley about. Unfortunately there were very few flounders either. I ended up with two sized flounders in conditions that should have been perfect for fishing. Apart from the torrential rain that soaked me in th...
