Re: It's the little things that become a pita.

My boat had similar issue -found by filling with gas pump upside down it fills no problem-if I try to fill like Normal (pump trigger on bottom) it kicks off after 2 seconds every time-give it a try

I charge double after I have to fix this right/superglue is a bad idea on graphite- it is near impossible to get off a blank-it etches into blank and when removed often pulls fibers off of blank -potentially weakening the rod in that spot.

Caught a lot of sturgeon with greenish tint and stripe on belly. Still are white sturgeon. Never seen one that big but did have 62” on my boat and u can tell by the body structure:scoots, nose etc . White sturgeon and green look nothing alike. I would bet it is a white solely based on body features

It’s the only other option in our waters: white sturgeon.
U can’t judge in reference to color.
Green sturgeon look like they got hit in the face with a frying pan! Nose is pushed up and has a “ski jump” for a nose. Also the scoots look like little jagged razor blades- much more pronounced/defined
