  1. Past hour
  2. Interesting. So you do it to brand new ones and you only dip the tail in?
  3. I would like to thank all the men and women of our armed forces, members on here or not, for their bravery and service to our great country. Any time I see a uniformed man or woman, when I'm out and about, I go out of my way to thank them.
  4. Hello and welcome aboard!
  5. They're kind of tricky to learn at first, but once you catch a few, it will really start to click. If you've got cool clear water, it's a bait you've got to learn to use. They'll work in warmer water too though, I've caught fish with them in 80 degree water.
  6. Today
  7. Waste of time.
  8. P line fluoroclear is a copolymer monofiliment coated In fluorocarbon not actually fluorocarbon itself. Still good line and less stretch than typical mono. I use it myself on a couple bc reels because I feel like it gives me the best of both worlds as an all around general line. As far as loops on your Palomar knot I usually use a normal single wrap with copolymer.. but it being 20lbs test I'd do two.
  9. I just received my deep diving crankbait outfit from Tackle Warehouse. I'm wondering what cranks in the 10' - 20' range you guys throw in clear water?

  11. I can assure you that several large trout imitations will be in the boat with us.
  12. Jim DaRosa - smallmouth guide on Mille Lacs. August is his favorite month. Best smb I've ever caught, been out with him 3 times and worth every pennny. Other option would be not until late September thru mid October on the Mississippi north of St Cloud. Guide is Joe Scegura. Unbelievable river fishing and Joe knows the river like the back of his hand.
  13. Im sure @Delaware Valley Tackle might have some insight.He will show up soon enough.
  14. Ok guys, a little update from my side. On Friday I went ahead and bought the Genesis II Cast Rod 7'11" Fred's Crank Launcher. Put the Ora Winch on it with 12 pound fluro. Went to the lake in the evening and tossed some 8XDs and DT 22s around. The reel is pretty amazing for the price. Smooth and casts bigger lures a country mile. Of course the handles and finish is not top class but for 80 USD it is still pretty good quality. The rod handled the big cranks pretty well. Casting was not a problem. Caught 4 fish on it (2 decent ones in the 4's) BUT I also lost 4 fish that got unhooked though I put pretty good pressure on the fish. The taper seems to be a bit too strong and slow for smaller fish. Otherwise the rod handled pretty well. Weight was great for the price range and the handle length was great too to stuck the rod under the arm. After 1h our fishing though I had to find out that the first guide had a chip in it. So I went back to the store to exchange it. They did not have the rod in store anymore. So, I exchanged it for the Shimano Zodias Casting Rod 7'6" Med Hvy Glass. Reviews seemed great, so I am gonna give it a shot. Also had a look at the Dobyns 805 and 806 CB and also the Powell MAX 3D 7115 CB G/C MOD-FAST MEDIUM HEAVY. THe Powell felt nice too just liked the longer handle on the Shimano a lot more. Let's see how the Shimano fishes. Deep Cranking is really fun, though it is quite expensive. .Lost 4 cranks in 3 hours... Oh well.
  15. Does the "clack clack clack" get you a lot of reaction strikes? It makes a good amount of noise on top. I fish it at about 2 feet under the surface.
  16. I agree, definitely the Pflueger Trion combo. I still have mine on the boat with me.
  17. I love my Cabelas mag touch rod to death. I don't think they make this line anymore so that part won't help, but IMHO, I think whatever the model, you are getting bang for the buck, especially when they're on sale. I have caught bass, salmon, trout,you name it and sensitivity is very good even though mine is a 2 piece rod by necessity.
  18. My gf always knows when I get stuff in because of the Japanese newspaper in the trash lol Gonna have to get a wood stove one of these days haha
  19. If you ever want to share some spots,let me know.Ive been fishing East of the river since I was a kid.
  20. Thanks guys. Ya swimbait fishing is rough. But rewards are great
  21. The Abu Garcia Revo Beast is $400, but honestly seems a little expensive for the reel. Anyone else use these?
  22. It will just do fine as long you keep it in that range (3/16 to 1/2 oz) For me, I would step up to 704C due to the power (4) as I tend to fish with heavy grass and those are always hungry in the morning. I still have the DC 734C set up for heavy grass while texas rig.
  23. I use only spinning setups, But right now i am a big fan of Suffix pro mix. I have been getting it in in 10 lb mono and have had 0 problems. I used to use the berkley trilene big game which is real good as well. Stay away from vanish and spiderwire in my opinion. As far as flouro goes, I have only used it on my cat rod and in P-line 30 lb. My buddy uses P line in 10 lb i believe and he also loves it. I used braid once and didn't like it so I have always mainly stuck to mono.
  24. I appreciate the comments. I'm not sure my 898 transducer can be mounted to my trolling motor. I have also been told that you don't want side imaging read from a transducer mounted on a trolling motor due to the constant turning and change in direction. That's why I thought I would mount the Helix transducer on the transom and run the cable up to the bow.
  25. How much for just the Casitas shipped?
  26. Wait, 31.5 inches is the world record? Heck, I have already caught three this year that beat that. Biggest so far is a 34 incher, I am definitely going to try an submit my next one.
