re: Has anyone ever tried to use inshore setups for nearshore fishing? - speckledawg
[quote]I have caught 20lb bull reds on my trout rod before[/quote] This was my first thought. Just work that drag and have a good hold (or tied off) to your gear. Worst case, you break off a few fish and head to the nearest tackle shop and pick up a new rig or two on your vacation. I think mos...

re: Bonnet Carre and MS Gulf coast Fishing - speckledawg
