I figured this would be a good place to show off my gear..
I'm usually using my quantum accucast, but I like a variety. I've got two heavy tackle spin casts that I really like, I've hauled in some nasty carp on them, and I have never had a problem with either.
I've had that black zebco reel since I was a kid, so I'm never letting go of it . The micro spincast is for scuba fishing now, I thought it would be fun to dive with a pole and fish, and it is (catch and release of course ).
I have to tell you, that rhino spinning reel is amazing, better than any spinning reel I've used before and its only 50$. The rhino baitcaster is rubbish though, I'll probably mod it later.
I got some nice trout in the past,occasional eel, pretty bluegills, and last one is why I no longer use a stringer on the Delaware Canal for bullhead cats
. Last photo courtesy a muskie. Felt bad and released the remaining catfish.
