This week's show features interviews with Ryan from ART Construction and RJ Boyle with RJ Boyle Studios. Ryan discusses factors to consider when planning or upgrading a dock like materials, design, size, and permitting process. He recommends building docks sturdier than required to withstand storms. RJ talks about choosing the right swordfishing rod based on use case. Key characteristics included a number 4 butt, ring guides, and a Winthrop tip. He described light, medium, and heavy action rods and said the medium is most popular. RJ also discussed using the right drag and not judging it based on rod bend alone. Both provided helpful tips that will benefit anglers in planning projects and catching fish.
