    For jigging, Avet JX, though I'd like to try one of the sx or jx raptors.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Have all Penn 345gti with 100 lb P-line braid. Had them for five years now, get them tunned up every year and have been flawless thus far.

    Diawa Sealine 30 II 2 speed with 80 lb TUF-Line XP Indicator on Seeker rods. I'd rather have the 20's but these were on sale at Sportsmans and priced too low to turn down.
