  10. I might be able to ship for around 25 - 30 dollars without the weights, may be willing to ship for the $500. Without weights, shipping the weights would cost about as much as you could buy weights locally for I'm guessing. My only concern is method of payment before shipping.
  11. Let me look into shipping cost, I may not have answer till tomorrow evening, going out of town.

  13. Good plan, head SW to100 fow, we were out the 26 & 27, best lure was green Flounder Pounder, we lost 3 to very large fish. First hour of light best, top half of water depth, down riggers and 225 & 180 copper worked best for us, work area in front of sand dunes, fish will be moving in closer, hope you catch a bunch!
  14. Anyone heard if the fishing from the pier is any good yet, I'd like to take a break from the boat.
  15.

Best depth was around 90-100 FOW SW troll and NW troll best, one day North of Holland and next day South. Will be back next week and check out shallower water, the fish are moving in closer. Also showed my fishing buddy how to tie a Palomar knot, maybe we wont have as many break offs. Had an AREA 51 Moonshine lure bent to a 30 degree angle with the hook pulled out of destroyed split ring, BIG FISH.
