#335576 Any one finance a boat from a private sale

Posted by Hucho Hucho on 25 August 2016 - 08:03 AM

Yes do not buy if you can not afford it. Don't forget you have to insure boa,t store it, winterize it, and maintenance is not cheap. Boat owner celebrates twice.

first time when they buy it and second time when they sell it. :)

the main line is just some trilene-xl 14lbs smooth casting line from Canadian tire. smaller diameter then the 15lbs tough game i was using before. not bad stuff, it still twists a bit after a few hundred cast, but not as bad as thicker lines.
i find i have to buy line that is on the bigger spools, vs the small spools, the small spools get to loopy and keeps the shape of the spool it was on after i have it on my float reel.

how do u solve the line twist problems from side casting? or is it just something that happens no matter what?

Thanks for the info. You will always have twist if you side cast no matter what line you are using try learning "wallis cast" no line twisting. You can find it on line and YouTube.Ii just bought Suffix Mix Pro everybody is saying that is very good line but i have yet to try it. Right now i'm using Raven 8lb green.
Good luck with your fishing adventures.

Thinking of getting a Okuma Sheffield for 200 new. Any opinions

What ever you do buy yourself new reel. If you buy used one there is always gamble. Okuma Sheffield is excellent reel pair it up with 13' Shimano Clarus or Streamside and you will thank me later. Those rods run around $100.00

I have Shimano Clarus 13' 4 pcs. I always brake it in 2 no need for 4. but you always have that option. As far handling, it is very light and it is awesome rod.
It is excellent rod for the money, I was landing 20-30lb salmon this season no problem. Releasing them too :)

This is not me!
