Penn 965/975 International Clicker

Help keep that clicker from breaking!

Keep your clicker ON when not using the reel!! I was fixing another broken clicker spring today for a buddy. You can see in the photo below, if you leave the clicker OFF, one spring stays completely stretched out. That is the one I am usually replacing when a clicker breaks on these reels. So good advice, leave the clicker on when not using, it will keep both springs in an uncompressed and neutral position. Not sure if this applies to any other reels..

The Amazing "FG Knot" for Connecting Braid to Leader!

By Ralph D'Angelo

The "FG Knot" is one of the newest and best ways to connect your braid fishing line to your leader. It's great for top shots because the knot is so low profile and slides through your guides easily. It does not intefere with your cast or cause backlashes like thicker knots such as the "Uni to Uni" knot.

For the most pat, I have been using the "Albright Special" knot to connect my mono or florocarbon leaders or top shots to my super braid backing. The Albright is super easy to tie (see how here), is strong, and pretty low profile. The "FG is even stronger and even more low profile. It is slightly harder to tier though. For know, until I get better at tieing it, I am making the knots at home, and when I am out on the water, using the bimini instead. But it's rare I have to tie the leaders on the water, so for the most part, they are tied on at home.

Here is an EXCELLENT website and video demonstrating what I have found to be the simplest way to tie this remarkable knot. It's crazy, but it's not even really a "knot" at all, it's simply wrapping the braid around the end of a single starnd of leader, and holds on using a principle similar to a "chinese finger cuff"!

Shark Fishing

New York is home to many species of sharks, from white sharks and makos to dusky sharks and sandbars.

Shortfin mako shark

If you decide to try your hand at shark fishing, here are a few things you should know before you go:

  • Many species of sharks are prohibited, meaning you can’t harvest or remove them from the water. Make sure you are familiar with the recreational shark regulations.
  • If you can’t identify a shark species, treat it as a prohibited species and release it, or as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) would say, "If you don't know, let it go!"
  • You are required to use non-stainless steel, non-offset circle hooks when shark fishing.

Sharks are apex predators (they are at the top of the food chain) and an important part of the marine ecosystem. While fishing, if you don’t intend to keep a shark, it is important to release it in a way that increases its chance of survival. Learn more about the safe handling and release of sharks.
