Can anyone describe to me the construction of those long rods the Hawai'i natives use for shore fishing for a fish called an Ulua (I think that's the spelling) The rods look to be about 14 feet in length and the reels they use are 4/0 types spooled with #60 pound mono with 10 feet of #100 to 200 pound test leader. The fish are humongous and average #50 pounds and are caught to 120 pounds....from the beach. George
I'm ready!!! Let me know when you wanna go!!!
Hey Milo: How about one of those on the Horseshoe where we slaughtered the Calicos. Let's go, it's about time and the squid are near. George
Hey George, Call Seeker fishin rods. I know that they make a couple of blanks called the Ulua. I have seen one that was 10 foot but they may have something longer than that. If I recall correctly, the 10 footer was rated 30-60...I think. GOod luck.
Thanks davetclown. It would be interesting to see a 13 1/2 foot surf rod that fishes #60 lb. They even have a one piece graphite which must cost a fortune. Anyway thanks for the lead, maybe someday I'll get to watch those guys but I have said that about 2000 pound sturgeon, bonefish, 900 pound bluefin etc, and so far I have never left Long Beach. George
now there's a tuogh one I am not a rod builder but have seen the rods you speek of on varoius programs about surf fishing. I wonder where this search will take me... be back as soon as I find something. or sooner if some one beets me to the punch.
