  1. Past hour
  2. Such an important piece of equipment!! Just got done with my annual eye exam and I am holding at my current prescription (same for 4 years) and just turned 60 with no signs of cataracts or eye damage from the multiple hours I spend on the water. I credit that to top notch eyewear. There are no do-overs on your eyes. You only get 1 set, take care of them. Years ago before I fished as much as I do, I wore cheap sunglasses. Then a friend introduced me to Serengeti Drivers as my first pair of quality sunglasses. While guiding I wore Solar Bats with no prescription for years. My eyes were never bad enough that I needed prescription glasses with sunglasses. Then I went to Lake St Clair for 15 years and bed fished for smallmouth. I was not seeing what others were so I decided to try out prescription sunglasses. I was contacted by someone I did shows and seminars with who actually works in the lab and makes the lenses for a lot of brands. Here was his advice to me,,,,,Very few make their own RX lenses. You pay big $$ for frames and the RX lenses are the same, He knows because he makes them and yes, COSTA, Maui Jim, Wiley X, are in that group. One that doesn't is Oakley. If you want RX lenses, the frames have to be sent back to Oakley. Expensive? Very. But one of the best investments I have ever made. I wear them all the time driving, fishing, etc. and wouldn't hesitate to replace them if anything ever went wrong. Also.....NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, get glass lenses for fishing. One bad hookset and you have an eye full of shattered glass. Poly-carbonate always for me.
  3. Devin - Welcome to Bass Resource. Enjoy reading & contributing in the forums. Thank you for your dedicated service.
  4. The xxx chimaera looks like the ticket.
  5. I always check every time that I go to Wally World... I always buy $20.00 or more each time that I go, most are sale items... They make great Christmas gifts for my fishing friends...
  6. I buy my jitterbugs there. They have the large black with a rattle. That's what my pb came on.
  7. Rod is in excellent condition, could almost pass as new, very clean and shiny no repairs, asking 200obo in N. DFW area thanks, will ship at buyers expense
  8. Thanks tom....will do.
  9. But the max length plus diameter is 108". I've been thru this scenario many a time.
  10. Welcome to the boards. Fishnkamp is spot on and welcome to our addiction.
  11. My local WM is always pretty picked over. I went to a location far from any bodies of water and in a neighborhood where there normally wouldn't be many fishermen and scored a great deal on chatterbaits. Both Strike King and Zman. Filled a plano 3700 with them for $40.
  12. From the album Midwest Fisherman

  13. My God... I'm glad someone finally said this! I've done this for years now. I just shipped an 8 footer from FL to CA for $ 14.78....
  14. Second time using the wacky rig & I landed this 6 pounder, bet I caught 50 over 3 pounds using just the wacky rig, well having trouble loading pic
  15. Thats what I use on shallow divers .
  16. The hooks on my 110's were good to go out of the box. They're beefed up and sharp like the newer hooks on the 130's are.
  17. The second person that said this.. The Shadow 2 is one of the most popular match guns home and abroad. It is an incredible pistol. It's funny you two scoff at the price tag, yet some seem to yearn for $450 polymer Glocks as a viable replacement. Oh, and your analogy was absolutely terrible. Please enlighten me as to what dreaming big would be in your opinion? If you are going to mention a Glock product then you might as well not even waste your time. Sheep.
  18. Just bought a spool of Big Game there yesterday .
  19. Today
  20. I think they are all pretty much the same . Except the cheap Wal-Mart ones . They are junk .. Look at how the blades turn and get two lures . One that turns each direction , that way you will have baits that run left and right . The original Lunker Lure turns opposite of most other baits . On a good buzzbait bite I will have both rigged up . Colors , my favorite is the old 40 count rubber in yellow or chartreuse. Now comes the onslaught of black Cavitron suggestions . .
  21. Have you tried sharpening the hooks?
  22. The Cabela's in Wheeling is nearer to Pittsburgh than Harrisburg. The Cabela's has a much greater selection than the Hanover BPS. Example is the rods where the Cabela's has the St Croix rids.
  23. Switch to flouro
  24. ohhh I have the bug... just trying not let it take over LOL
  25. I live in Maryland, 20 minutes from the BPS in Hanover. The store is smaller than the Harrisburg store. It also has gear for Chesapeake Bay and ocean fishing, so it has much less bass fishing gear than Harrisburg. The Hanover store appears to cater towards the casual angler, and doesn't have much of the tackle that the serious bass anglers would be interested in. I shop the Hanover store for smaller items such as tungsten weights, etc. The Harrisburg store has much more bass gear such as the mid-level and higher end St. Croix rods. I have over $100 in BPS credit card points that I wanted to use at Hanover but they didn't have anything that I wanted.
  26. That's pretty obvious Mike! I'll take LSU just to be obstinate. What a game Singer pitched! Just love good baseball!
  27. A tip for shipping USPS, shipping priority saves you about $15-$20 average. Most rod tubes will exceed their normal ground service length limit, and they will slap a surcharge on top for cumbersome size. Shipping priority will wipe the surcharge, give you free tracking, and they'll get it much quicker. I've paid 15 bucks to send a 7'7" rod in a 3" tube halfway across the country. Before I knew any better I paid $36
