The Most Reliable Fishing Rod/Reel Combo: Shimano Ci4+ / G. Loomis E6X Inshore Rod

The Most Reliable Fishing Rod/Reel Combo: Shimano Ci4+ / G. Loomis E6X Inshore Rod

Today we talking about a GREAT fishing reel and fishing rod combo. This is my go to set up for pretty much all inshore fishing. Whether we are pier fishing, bridge fishing, river fishing, jetty fishing or fishing off a boat, the Shimano Ci4+ and the G. Loomis E6X rod has not let us down. It continues to be a very reliable, lightweight durable combo. The price tag of this combo can be expensive, however, if you look for deals, you can get them at a very affordable price. This combo is truly an investment. I have been using this reel for over a year now. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL. You get what you pay for. Shimano also has very good warranty.

We are using a technique called float fishing. This technique works around the world for many different kinds of fish. IF you want to learn the ins and outs of this method, read our FLOAT RIG ADVENTURE GUIDE. We wrote and fully illustrated this guide to help you learn this fantastic technique.

    Your not supposed to use a Saragosa on an extra heavy rod for trout

  2. Architeuthis Dux on February 26, 2020 at 2:15 pm

    This reel is actually overrated and quite average. Daiwa make so many better reels than this in its LT class

  3. alexa piers on February 26, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    which is better stradic ci4+ or new stradic FL?thx

  4. huy nguyen on February 26, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    Your rods one piece or two sir?

  5. CalamityBYC1 on February 26, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    Isn’t that reel for fresh water only? I was going to buy one from a guy for 300 he wanted to sell it as a combo with a g loomis NRX rod but when I asked if it was okay to use in salt water he told be “NO”.

  6. madtownangler on February 26, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    Do you have a net of some kind for bridge fishing?

  7. Justin Davis on February 26, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    Is that the 4000FB real or FB XG?

  8. Revolution Road on February 26, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    Daiwa Ballistic LT is a much better bargain. I love Shimano’s but man they are not a bargain for the money.

  9. JoeyBrownVlogs on February 26, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    Why are you using a heavy rod with a 4000 reel. For trout you can use a medium light with a 2500 sized reel 🤨

  10. Henry Darr on February 26, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    So stoked to see Erin getting amongst it. Catch and cook next time for sure !

  11. Irish Wilds on February 26, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    Haha Awesome video guys 😀 Keep it up! The duo videos are nice because there’s a bit more rapport. Your dad is awesome too, get him in on more videos! He’s so old school he makes fishing look easy! lol

  12. Nicholas Naranjo on February 26, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Where do you get that red ball grip for the shimano??

  13. RatheBeFishing RatherBeFishing on February 26, 2020 at 2:25 pm

    Or something like that

  14. Blake on February 26, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    Is that the 4000 size for the Stradic?

  15. RatheBeFishing RatherBeFishing on February 26, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    The ci4+ us what it’s made from

  16. MikeD YT on February 26, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    Senior Skipper, does your super salty squid with in Black Sea Bass

  17. Jun Da Li on February 26, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    You should get the Shimano Sustain FI reel.

  18. Pesca e Emoção on February 26, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    Parabens muito bom mais um inscrito e sininho ativado abraco e boas pescarias

  19. Blake Marchetto on February 26, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    That black drum wasn’t huge😂 it was a nice little guy but definitely not huge. My dad caught a 40 lb black drum on a 2500 reel and medium light rod

  20. সোনালী ইনকিউবেটর on February 26, 2020 at 2:31 pm

    Hi
    I m from Bangladesh, I like your hobby,because I love this hobby

  21. Sherif الصيد والسمكه Mohamed on February 26, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    👍👍👍

  22. 911 Tech on February 26, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    Guessing that was a Stradic. Ci4+ is a description of the materials Shimano makes the reel bodies from rather than the reel name. They make Ci4+ bait casters as well like the curado. Great stuff. Even the 2500 has around 22lbs drag and weighs a few ounces.

  23. Federico Llorente on February 26, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    U got a tarpon rod

  24. Stone Cold Steve Autism on February 26, 2020 at 2:37 pm

    I’m a believer in the sedonas and the stradic from Shimano. Keep them sprayed down with reelmagic and they will last for years!

  25. aljun sagang on February 26, 2020 at 2:37 pm

    You have and extra fishing rod can i get that because i want to fishing like u.. ☺️ ☺️ If u have extra fishing rod.. If no. Its owkie☺️☺️ very nice your fishing rod

  26. Clarence Oliver King-Ramirez on February 26, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    You should do more catch and cook

  27. Rusty Shacklfur on February 26, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Oh and if I could have a conflict for 95 or another reel for that price price I would give the fuego or a bg a serious look because Penn line lay is a 50 50 chance of being fishable or terrible in my experience especially my battles.

  28. Anglers Lifestyle on February 26, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Always fun to see Erin fishing. I do understand about the adrenaline rush. My wife gets it all the time. She looses her mind when fish is on her line.👍

  29. C8UTiON_10:9 on February 26, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Do you happen to know the part number on the on the E6X? I’m seeing different E6X models – 894C, 843C, 852S, 845C, 853C ? Thanks

  30. Adam Y on February 26, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    I would love to see a review on the Shakespeare ugly stik elite salmon/steelhead 9’ x heavy rod. I can’t find any.

  31. RatheBeFishing RatherBeFishing on February 26, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    It’s a stradic ci4+ not just a ci4+

  32. Northern Bred on February 26, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    I’ve got the same set up for float fishing for steelhead. it’s a great rod

  33. hunter 50BMG on February 26, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    Between

  34. Avery Kirchner on February 26, 2020 at 2:45 pm

    Which reel size would you recommend for trout fishing

  35. The Fishing Family on February 26, 2020 at 2:46 pm

    I’m cracking up at Erin giving words of encouragement to her bait shrimp 😂😂😂
    I just love you guys!

  36. jason huynh on February 26, 2020 at 2:49 pm

    That a garbage reel that shimano has ever make!! I bought one and use it for a few weeks and it start making noise and not as smooth as when i first bought it!!! my recommendation is the daiwa balistic this reel is fantastic it really smooth and u can cast really far with it

  37. MUSTAMOMO on February 26, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    What is your opinion on Shimano Saragosa 25000? As considering one for lure popping reefs

  38. KyleForAwhile on February 26, 2020 at 2:52 pm

    By far one of the best reels on the market.

  39. BayAreaFishingKings on February 26, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    U took her spot when she lost that fish lol

  40. Mackenzie Weyrick on February 26, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    the black drum wasnt that big

  41. Eric Flowers on February 26, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    StormR coat in Florida? Lol. Nice video though.

  42. Protocl on February 26, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    The reel is called Stradic.
    Ci-4 is just one of many Shimano designed features.

  43. Alejandro Rodriguez on February 26, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    Try catching bigger fish

  44. readyme on February 26, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    I have been liking your videos. Do you have any experience with backpacking setups? Most out there seem like garbage. Can you recommend a reel for mountain lake and stream trout? I am going to be looking for a 4 piece rod to keep the length short in my pack.

  45. aaron byah on February 26, 2020 at 3:01 pm

    I’m not sure that qualifies as a "funny story" but that’s definitely a great deal!

  46. Wrong Send on February 26, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    Nice catch. Keep riding it.

  47. Mario Grey on February 26, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    Fort George inlet

  48. Getzopurple on February 26, 2020 at 3:03 pm

    Why are you guys striking the fish I thought you run circle hooks

  49. Harun Arslan on February 26, 2020 at 3:10 pm
