"On the FISH N FOOL & the LADY EM we use all professional Penn and Tiagra tackle. It's tough enough to handle the abuse we give it. All custom built rods for both light tackle sport fishing and big fish down deep. Ande monofilament and the right knot will get the job done. "It is worth it to take the extra time to make sure the tackle is 100% every day. You usually only get one shot at a monster trophy fish and tackle failure is not an option. We have both been doing this long enough to know what not to do. Half assed tackle will only let you down when you need it the most. You will catch all the little ones, but it is that one bite that you are looking for and that is when everything has to be right."
"Do it right the first time and you stand a fighting chance of landing that big fish."
