Casting practice 2/4/07
Yes, it's that time of year again so I hit the practice field at Centerville & Ethridge Manor Sunday afternoon before the game. And, of course, first cast into a strong head wind and zing-pow Second toss a safer warm-up throw of 105yds. Rest of my 8oz day casting setups, yardage, or Hatteras cast follies :p
Diawa SHV-30 w/Rainshadow (RS) 1509 17lb Suffix Tri: 123, 118, 130 old reliable.
Penn 975 & RS1502 15lb Cajun tied into some Suffix underneath: 135, , put that fickle thing back on the truck for re-spooling This is my favorite combo which I was in the zone with during last Falls drum run and when it's on its awesome. When its not ~ lookout!
Penn 535 UK mag & a 1502 like rod of unknown origin AKA "the Chapa rod" w/20lb Cajun: 110, 110 w/8oz. This combo needs a 10oz for me to load it better, consistent after that to get a 125yds w/a ten
Penn 525 mag & Ron Arra surf series custom 15 lb cajun: 117 (4 mag setting), 125 (2 mag setting), (yeah had it on hero or zero setting). I'm still waiting for that lead to land So anyone finds a storm or pyramid 8oz out there ~ their mine :o
Plan to break 150 yard mark with the 975 or the 525 an 8 ounces this winter until then I better buy some more line and pour some more lead. Hope it'll warm some for casting this weekend.
Hope to see you out there too!

I ALWAYS hate the ole ZING-POW especially in the yard with both trucks there !!! But I've been lucky...... so far. :p ;)
I wish you'd have let some of us know in advance - would have loved to have been there. (or did I miss the post?)
No RG, no post. Just impromptu run down the street for me. Hey I did post that I'm sizing it up for this weekend so see you out there, eh?!
Whats the weather gonna be like? I heard its gonna be colder than a witches tit this week.
Hopefully it will warm up by the weekend. Maybe the upper 30's ???
Rory can use all the practice he can get !! I was out on the LIP yesterday in the wind & cold all alone for some practice casting of my own. if the boat wsnt hooked to the truck i would go back again right now !! come get me RG !lol
Let me know when and I'll try to be there. I'll just be happy breaking the 100 yard mark~
