Wish I could have a boat. I usually do a 3/4 day trip down to mexico once a month but idk if that's gonna keep happening. Mexico wants us to purchase a visitor visa for a damn near additional 30 dollars for one day.

Well some piers can be a bit windy and all but a select few places you can't overhand cast. Side casting is worse imo and you can't really underhand a saltwater baitcaster.

So I'm guessing a sabot is a small disk or wadding of sorts to keep the pressure behind the projectile until exiting the barrel. And for the most part I use single hooks. Only a couple tadys and rapalas have trebles and I only really use those on the boat.
