My dad loves to fish off the pier. He’s in North Carolina. Anyone have any ideas for rod/reel combos? He currently uses a Penn Battle II combo with a double drop for bottom fishing. Is there a better combo for him to use in warmer months for Spanish Mackerel. He likes to jig a gotcha plug.
Yknow. A whole bunch of gotcha plugs wouldn’t be a bad gift, it’s one of those things you can’t have too many. Maybe find out if he loses lots of gotcha plugs to bite offs first. Otherwise, maybe a second rod? A nice saltwater proof pair of pliers that is attached to a belt clip via a cord is real nice to have in a good spanish bite too
