PostSubject: Rods and reels setup   Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:25 am

I'm thinking of using two carp rods with multiplier reels for downtiding from the boat,they both have 20lb'ish mono line on them.I have plenty of 30lb braid at hand,anybody got any opinions on using braid?
One reel is a Diawa the other is a shimano lever drag.
I've got a couple of light boat rods I could use,but the bite indication wouldn't be as good because of the less flexible tips.
I suppose I could let off the drag and put the reels on "clicker"
Anybody got any suggestions?
The boat has two seats that will swivel to facing backwards for fishing,thought of uptiding from the seats while the
downtiding rods are out off the back.I'll be fishing at anchor.

Only problem with multipliers on carp rods might be the lack of eyes along the rod. Because they are designed for fixed spools and more spaced out you end up with the line rubbing on the rod when you get a bend in it using a multiplier. Other than that theres no issue and braid is brilliant stuff. I rarely use mono these days, its far better. Just dont pull it tight if you get in a bit of a tangle

Thanks Si,
I'll have a look at using different rods,I've got a couple of light boat rods.
I've got a shimano fixed spool reel with 50lb braid on it,might do a shuffle. lol!

Right, first I do not like long rods on a boat, they are hard to handle , get in the way, if there is a chop, they wave around, and last it is hard to get fish close to the boat without tip loading the rod. It is amazing what you can do with light rods, depending a bit on current and fish size.
Braid is good for some applications, such as soft baiting or fishing small lures, as bites can be felt easier, and for deep water and fast currents as it is thinner for it's strength. Tangles with braid are a nightmare, especialy if using 2 rods. I find braid needs a soft rod as with no stretch it can be fairly brutal with fish that headshake or lunge.

Might use a couple of shorter spinning rods,they will still show the bites better than boat rods.
I've just sent for 1000mtrs of 30lb braid,it should arrive mid July/August.
With only two of us fishing,with a bit of luck we might avoid tangles.
I've got a kayak rod about 3ft long,with a one handed reel that might come in handy.
I made up a 6ft rod that's pretty versatile,it's pretty tough and flexible,be handy for the mackerel.
I'm hoping the mono traces will give a bit of stretch to soften the braid.
