Hello all sealiners!

I joined sealine today because I have been reading posts for a very long time and learned a lot.

Recently I purchased a brand new setup

Reel:Shimano Saragosa 25000
Rod: Okuma Makaira 14.6 ft

I want to focus on non-edibles mainly( like pylies/sharks) but edibles are always welcome!

Are there any tips on spooling the saragosa 25 000?( Newbie to braid/topshot/straight mono or straight braid)

- What braid/MONO? ( Looked at whiplash/Boss braid and hmp but read on sealine that the diameter is not the same as indicated for whiplash)

- What determines the lb of braid that you would use?
50 /65/80/100 ?

- How would you guys spool this reel for my application?

- If you add a decent mono topshot, would you be able to slide big baits ?

I know these are a lot of questions and I probably posted this in the wrong section,but would GREATLY appreciate any advice as I am very new to rock and surf.

Looking forward to suggestions and tips.

Regards & Tight Lines

Well, looking back at this post, inexperienced and practically clueless was definitely the case.

So I had to take it upon myself to learn and gain experience.

After numerous failures ( making poor quality steel traces, learning knots from scratch, bait presentations, poking myself a few times with hooks) I finally got the basics in check.

Then after blanking a few times and spending ample hours at the beach,asking questions and observing other anglers, I stepped up my game substantially (traces,bait,technique,fitness etc.)

I landed this beautiful female Bronzie.

Persistence/perseverance is key. Lekker man.

net dom mense vra nie vrae nie.
met tye is dit kwaai stil hier op die forum.
die meeste regte hengelaars werk deesdae en kry nie altyd tyd om hier te reply nie, en die internet hengelaars hang op face boek rond….lol

aanhouer wen, dit het jy reeds bewys.
en steel pappie, steel met daai ogies van jou…..

dit werk soos n bom!!!
