Good day fellow anglers,
I've been dormant for sometime since my last fishing trip and i'm looking to come back to offshore fishing in local waters BUT i've sold my previous equipment. Previously was using a pe2-4 overhead with poseidon 200r jigg reel loaded with 40lb line.
However, I am not well equipped with knowledge on the different setup and also the usage of tenya, madai. Kinda felt like i was a lost soul when i was doing the lift and drop which i honestly don't know whether it's the correct technique. Felt snags on the bottom but thought it was fish and HOOT! SANKOK follows... (anglers on board gave me the "looks")
Therefore I'm asking for help on the following;
1. Which setup should i get for day trips?
2. Should i replace stock hooks on madai/tenya?
3. What are the recommended line poundage?
4. Are there newer fishing trends on local water fishing? eg; new accessories
Budget wise 500~. Thank you for your time reading this!
