  1. Lets Talk Seagaur

    I run Abrazx and Invizx for all my floro needs. 50% of my 12 rods are set up with floro. I have limited experience with the Abrazx as I just started using it. But I can't say anything bad about Invizx. I have been using it for cranking, t-rig in the rocks and brush, Jerk baits. I am trying the Abrazx as I have heard it has less stretch than Invizx.
  2. I've fished both. There is a time and place for both. Open water Terrova all the way. But rivers, shallow water, slop cable steer every time. Fishing in current around rocks & obstacles only way to go is cable. That remote is a disaster waiting to happen in my experience.
  3. Livewell Pump

    x2 on the Flow-rite system. I installed one last year. Great product!
  4. Tournament Cheating

    I've seen cheating 3 times in the last couple years that resulted in eliminations. Fishing outside marked boundaries x2 same team both times. Another time I took second to a team that accepted 1st on a clerical mistake on the leader board. After it was all said and done they knew it was a mistake and didn't bother to say anything. The mistake was an even 10lbs....they weren't even in the top 10. The boater in this one was involved in the two cases prior also. They have been banned from several clubs now.
  5. Sell Me A New Rod?

    It is going to come down to what you feel is reasonable for you own budget. I also look at it like this. Any time I need to be in contact with bottom or drop shotting I want a sensative rod. In cases like this then yes spend the money and find a rod that you like. And the deeper you are fishing the more this becomes important along with the type of line you are using. If I am dead sticking a senko what do I need a sensative rod for? It is falling on slack line so constant contact is not necessary.
  6. Bass Boats And Tourneys?

    Lol! I will add a few things to this. I fish a 1983 Starcraft bass 170 with a 1975 Merc 650 (65 horse). I really started tournement fishing hard last year. I fished 3 tourney trails last year. One other guy had a 18 foot tin. Every one else glass boats. There were a few guys chuckling, scoffing. I believe the term live baiters was thrown in there. In the end I finished 1st in one series, and second in the other 2. And wrapped up angler of the year in the one. No one talks about it now. My boat is what I can afford. And inside that boat is good gear and a boat that is well taken care of. Not so easy to say you would be upset about riding in a small boat when you are beating the bank or riding in a big boat with no fish. That all being said I would love to have a bigger boat. It just isn't a priority or me or my family.
  7. Bass Boats And Tourneys?

    Check the rules in the leage or club. Most around here have a minumum length of 16' because of the possibilty of going on big water. Lake Michigan or Green Bay. Usually the other is requirement is a working livewell. Probably the most important necessity, in tournement fishing is a good livewell. With that being said, fishing a smaller boat has it's advantages and disadvantages. Like said above though, the boat doesn't make the fisherman.
  8. Humminbird 798Ci Si Hd Combo

    So I just bought this graph tonight. Super stoked. I have been wanting to get a new graph price was right at $599. Now I just need to hire Wayne to show me how to use it.
  9. My advise....order some rod wrapping thread. And some flex coat light. Take a rod that you have and don't use much any more. Strip the guides off. Re-wrap the rod & finish it. If you don't like doing it now you are only out $20. If you like it, then buy a blank and have at it. Finish is the hardest thing to perfect.
  10. Budget Bass Fishing

    If you have a Duhnams Sports around you the have Abu Garcia combos in the silver max or black max reels for around $60-80. The rods are mediums to m-heavy. Good starter set ups.
  11. Threadwork Bleeding?

    Yeah that pearl metallic turns almost translucent. The only white I don't use cp on is if it is a color fast white and even then you have to make sure you pack the threads carefully. Even when using nylon thread the thread will turn translucent unless 1) you use cp or. 2) you use a colorfast thread
  12. Pflueger Spinning Reels

    Thanks guys. Appreciate the feedback
  13. I have used Pflueger spinning reels for years. The President series is all I have ever used and have no complaints. My question is the step up to the supreme or supreme xt worth the cost for those of you who have used both. I know the big differences are going to be weight savings & upgraded components. I Guess I am asking about fit and function. Thanks
