the market is not only fer fisher people but folk art buyers as well. i have seen some huge prices in antique/folk art stough.
new stough by a non fisher person maybe not. i almost bought a bunch of fish "decoys" in montana but the provenance was dicey.

Jim W wrote:Pescador, you and Chillin have different preferences in reels, You spinning with braided line, while chillin appears to prefer sidecast and mono? Since I am a newbie, thinking about getting outfitted why one over the other, or is it personal preference?

TIA.....Jim W

Jim,

OK, it wouldn't be fair for me to comment on the Alvey reels, I have never seen one only in pictures.

CHILLIN wrote:I am mostly a big river/estuary fisherman. There is some mighty rivers in British Columbia. The West Coast of Vancouver Island is pretty wild too - a lot like Mayto probably

I bought the surf setup for a technique I invented using a sideplaner to pull diving plugs in the river. You get started from the bank, and it catches the current and can work 100's of yards of river. If you get a strike, the sideplaner collapses.

Chillin,

I have seen some mighty fine fishing on TV about BC, thanks for sharing. Just something about fishing, my Grandparents instilled in me as a child, its been my passion for a great many years.

Like I said in one of my earlier posts ,this Surf Fishing was all NEW to me, but I have learned many things either by myself or my many fishermen friends via the internet.

Regards and hope to meet you someday.

Hey RoofBob,

Sounds like you had a GREAT time fishin in those days. I lived in Western New York and just fished fresh water Lakes, 'til moving to Mexico in 2004. Never even heard of a Rooster Fish, until I started learning how to Surf Fish.

Have you ever caught a Jack Crevalle? They are one strong fish and will make your arms just ache, after landing a couple 25-30 pounders. Very Happy
Worked the sport boats out of San Diego during summer vacations from high school - crew 1/2 day, fish 1/2 day free! Got drafted, got out, worked on some commercial boats rock cod and fishing albacore with bamboo poles. Then in '70 crewed on a 95' luxury fishing yacht in the Gulf of California, unbelievable. Then it was off to Costa Rica via train through Mexico packing mask, snorkle, fins, spreader spear, Garcia Mitchell 300 w/12 lb. test,100 Scampy heads, 300 tails and stayed for 7 months, came back to the states then pulled the same number for the next 6 years. Never caught a Jack that big and wouldn't want to now but you're right, those suckers can straighten you right out.

Hey Bob,

We have got to get together someday for a coffee and some stories! HA! Sounds like you've done it all, certainly you learned a lot and have had some GREAT Experiences. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Jim,

Where the heck were you, when I was trying to get some guys together to go Surf Fishing with me, at leat 5 years ago?? LOL

I am in Manzanillo as I speak and the water is very cold and not many fish around. I will be home, San Juan Cosala, end of May. If you would like come on up have a cup of coffee and I will show you my equipment and what I use. You do not need expensive equipment to get started. My rods are made in New Zealand and Austrailia and custom built in New Jersey, and very expensive because fishing is my passion. I use Spinning reels with 30-50# braided lines.

Chillin, is right, about having to cast 100 yards or sometimes that isn't enough depending on the huge waves. I have actually fished with the guy Chillin is speaking of. As I am getting older I am leaning more towards renting a Panga for most of my Ocean fishing. Think I still got a couple of fair to good years left in me though. SURF FISHING - Page 3 87465

Pescasdor, When fishing out of a Panga, what type rod to you use, Length? I assume the same reel?

Hey Jim,

Though I have fished from a Panga a few times, this will be my first attempt to target just the Roosters. I will start out using the 10'6" Rod I showed you and the Tica Spinning reel. The Saltist Reel is too BIG for this Rod and more suitable for the 12'6" Rods I have. I will let you know what works best. It's very important to match the Rod and Reel in order to get the best performance.

I really want to use just top water lures, so I need awhile to talk to some of the Panga Captains to get their ideas on this. I have a few ideas of my own, not so sure the captains will be keen on them though.
