Taking a salmon trip in a few weeks. IV gota old fiberglass Wright & McGill looks like a ocean rod. What should I spool it with? I was thinking braid n a shock leader.looking for some info thanks.
Leave the noodle rod at home. Leave the 12lb main and 10lb leaders at home too. These are not steelhead.I'm taking my noodle with me 12main 10 leader. Just not sure what to take for the big boys, I don't really have a big spinning reel. With a good drag. I'm sure whatever I take it will be a learning experience.
Noodle rod at home. I fished last weekend in MI and there is no way that a noodle rod would've done anything to the fish I had hook up. They're big this year...really big.I am going on a trip to Michigan this coming week, I will be using my 8wt custom fly rod, my father is going to be coming along, I was going to bring 2 sping rods with him, all my spinning reals are designed for ocean fish and I have caught Cuda as long as me on some of my medium light Shamano reals. I was going to give him my steelhead noodle rod and reline it with 15ib Sufix, Should I leave the noodle rod home and bring a few medium heavy rods instead?
You where correct my friend had over 30 hookups in 2 1/2 days out there, Those fish where huge lol, my first broke my wading net for steelhead. I just used my 8wt, and my fly box is on the light side now and I loved it.Noodle rod at home.
