  1. Thanks guys I think <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:State><st1:place>Ill</st1:place></st1:State> be ok for my first excursion now! I would be interested in knowing what color gulp mullet your using and when you’re tying the tandem jig rig how are you doing it. I use something I believe is similar but simply use two leaders, one being 12"-16" and the second being 24"-30" long attached to my running line via a snap hook. (Fresh water crappie) Same principle? Also what size hooks and pyramid sinkers should I use on my double hook bottom rigs while fishing spot/croaker/perch? <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
  2. Thanks for the reply. I haven’t really a clue exactly what Ill be fishing for, again I float my local stream every Sunday April - November but smallmouth bass and musky are all I target. I am assuming there will be possibility to catch Rock Fish, Blues, Spot, Croaker and Flounder. I don’t know what else. I am planning on purchasing a 7'-8' Heavy rod for my STX 40 and using my musky setup as well. I think that will cover me as a beginner but what about bait/lures and fishing techniques? Will there be any fish in the smaller bays off of the Chesapeake?
  3. First let me start by saying hello to all. I am hoping you guys (and gals?) can help with my first coast fishing experience. I am making a trip to Colonial Beach this Memorial Day weekend to do a little fishing and since I only fish the rivers of SWVA I don’t have a clue what Ill need. I will be fishing off the pier and a head boat while there. Right now I use 3 different setups: x1 Garcia SORON 40 with 6lb braid on a 6'6" shimano crucial MH, x1 Shimano citica with 6lb braid on a 6'6" H&H MH, and x1 Garcia Ambassador 6500 on a 7'2" American Rod smith MH. I am assuming now I will need to buy new combos, but may be able to use my 6500 musky setup. Please all advise on combos (entry level $), lures, rigs, techniques, etc. will be more than appreciated! Thanks Shane
