I've gone fishing in Sandusky at battery park and by the miller fairy. I catch fish most of the time. A few perch sheepheads, cat fish. The sheaphead and the cats are not hard to fell when they bite. It the perch I have touble hooking. I was wondering what rods and type of line everyone eles uses. I swiched to 7' light action rod I feel and see more bites with this rod but still miss alot of fish. I've been using 8lb fire line. I think I'am going to try a mono line to give the fish a chance to hold on longer. I also started to tie my hooks on the line instead of a crappie rig or spreader. Some of my problem is I 've had carpal tunle surgery on both hands and do not have 100% feeling in them. Thats why I tried the fire line to feel more hits.
