    Re: Rod/Reel Question for the experts :)

    Should do great for most anything we catch around here. 15# drag is a lot. I would go 50# braid at most. 65# is big and over kill. I like 50# as I can see it to tie it. My Calcutta 251 I use...

    Grizzly Island wildlife area has had them for years. I remember hunting pheasants one year, having to be careful of the elk. That had to be before 1980.

    Re: BF8 Propeller cahnge

    You would want less pitch. Call Phil’s in Redding, and see what they say and what the cost to repitch. May save a bunch of bucks. The replacement for my Yamaha T-8 is $170.
