Fishing Trips

Stump Lagoon

Lesson 3

An oldie and a favorite, this shoreline in Stump Lagoon gets some attention before moving on.

It’s a little early for it, but still worth trying.

    You said you are using a 2500 size reel with your popping cork for speckled trout. What kind of reel are you using and what rod brand and power is your set up?

  • Devin says:

    Jamie, excellent question!

    Okay, let me preface this answer with this: I hate brands.

    Hate. Hate. Hate. Brands.

    What matters most to me are specifications and technical features.

    It’s sort of like that saying when you buy a Ranger boat (which are really nice boats) that you pay $30,000 for the boat and $40,000 for the hoodie.

    Make sense?

    But to answer in detail, the reel is a Daiwa Crossfire 2500 and the rod is a Duce Echo ESM71F, or a 7′ medium power, fast action spinning rod.

    It’s made for bass fishing in mind, but does fine for inshore applications.

    Hope that answers your question.

  • Ranger2310 says:

    Yes. You answered my question and makes perfect sense and I know exactly where you are coming from since I own a Ranger. Lol. Just wanting to know your set up more for the specs than the brand so I can see if what I have is in the ball park. Thanks you for what you do to help me become better at this inshore fishing addiction I have. I live in North La so I don’t get to have the TOW that I would like to have so when I do get a chance to head south, it’s great having the knowledge that you provide us with!!!

  • Devin says:

    LOL That’s funny.

    FWIW, I like Ranger.

    Anyways, I hear you loud and clear.

    TOW is precious!

    Thanks for commenting, Jamie. I appreciate you!
