  1. I have a small pump that operates off of the 12V cigarette lighter that I use sometimes on my pontoon. I had the same problem you are having. I just opened the valve on the pontoon and the air goes in. When you get it inflated enough, pop off the air hose and quickly close the valve. I don't think the 12 V air pump has enough power to open the valve when it's pumping.

  2. I have a Cabelas 8 wt LST rod (9'6") and a Cabelas CSR reel for it that I use for salmon and steelhead. I've had it for about 5 yrs now and haven't had any issues with it. When I hook a salmon I'm not scared to lay into the rod either. I've hooked and landed quite a few salmon and steelhead with this outfit and it handles them just fine for me. I paid just over $200.00 for it when I got it.

    As someone else said, you need a reel with a good drag and one that will hold plenty of backing. They're like hooking into a freight train and when they take off hang on. smile.png

  3. A few years back I took my spinning rod to the local creek for some smallies. After catching 3 carp on rapala, I gave up and came home. They are oppertunistic, what ever they can fit in their mouth they'll eat sometimes.

    Nice carp coinman!
