hey i know that place lol
Yah, not too big of a secret!
Awesome casting reefmonsta
we do the same here when the fishing conditions are up the creek. Do any of you fish with the reel at the bottom? How do you fight a big fish with the reel in the up position? do you clamp it under your arm?
We fit Fuji trigger reel seets at the bottom, I wonder if casting is better with the reel up, I have never tried it but it seems akward to handle a fish as you can't use a rod bucket
Thanks CapeFish but I was probably the worst caster in the whole video
Guys normally fight fish with the rod in between the legs, not under the arm. When fighting something big you can place the pole back into the holder and still continue the battle with out having to hunch down to crank the reel. I have actually seen a few guys with the trigger reel seats too. I think there are benefits on both sides of the fence. I think you can gain more casting distance with the reel seat lower but I think its easier to fight the fish with the reel seat higher.
the video must have taken forever to edit. thanks for posting it!
Thanks Alan! I've been editing stuff since the mid 90's prior to using software based tools so I can crank things out pretty quickly. But the big problem is just trying to set aside a block of time to get it done. Next time I come out we got to shoot some how to vids
I'm impressed, the first thing I noticed was when they were going for distance they really put a lot of muscle behind the casts, but the 50 yard cast they more or less just flicked their wrists, how far would a maximum distance cast be ?
If I remember correctly, there were a few that went out past the 200 yard marker. A few of us actually put a dollar each into the "bucket challenge" and whoever hit the bucket or got closest got to keep all the money
Being able to precisely place your lead where you want is a tough skill to master!
