    In his "surf fishing equipment" video, he says the rods are 13' 6" one piece (!) blanks, custom build on an out of production Sabre blank (model number not mentioned in the video). Reels are Mitchell 498 4:1 with PUM. Remember he is a commercial pinhooker.

    I too made some of these float jigs last year, Caught all our reds and pompano on them tipped with fresh dead shrimp. Was alittle concerned the hooks might be too big. But they seemed ok. We were on the beach in Fort Morgan. Count down is on for our return at the end of March.

    thanks for posting. Looks like you got the "double stick" on him, or is the bottom hook fooling me?

    Just bought a 100 of these floats which is way more than I need, but it was the least expensive way to buy them considering that shipping was $9 for a bag of 25 or 4 bags. The 4 bags I bought with shipping was $24. Anyone who wants 50 floats / 2 bags I'll send them to you for half of my cost $12. First come first served. Just PM me your e mail / address and I'll get back to you with my PayPal info and or address, if you want to send cash or check. When I get the money the floats will be in the mail. That's $12 for 50 floats, no hooks, no beads, no glue just floats.

    They are the 3/4" which is the length of the float. Did not see any 1/2". They are the same as the ones in the video. By the way, they are sold.

    Snake,
    No, not a double stick. Just hanging behind the fish.
