  2. 7'8 Medium Heavy Rod.

    7'8" MH rod rated for 1/4 to 3/4 oz fast action is a tough question of what to use it for? Tom

  4. Need some value priced polarized sunglasses

    Strike King S11 are very nice for the money. Bought 3 pairs somewhere on the interwebs for $49. Allen
  5. Big swimbaits vs small water

    Keitech recommends a 10/0 for the 7.8" and a 6/0 for the 6.8" but it is not an exact science. I would bet those 8/0 would work on both baits. I like the Owner Weighted Beast and the Lazer Trokar Magnum Weighted. You just need to make sure you have a wide enough gap for these extra fat swimbaits. https://www.keitechusa.com/keitech-swimbaits/keitech-swing-impact-fat/keitech-fat-swing-impact-7.8/keitech-fat-swing-impact-7.8-silver-flash-minnow-clone.html
  6. I would put the topwater away and use a jig and craw.
  7. Overusing a bait?

    If it were me fishing I would keep mixing up the baits. I would use my confidence bait only if nothing else is working.
  8. What software to edit GoPro footage

    If you have a MacBook iMovie is free and surprisingly a great program to edit videos, especially for beginners!
  9. Enormous size differences.

    Great stuff above. Genetics, food, growing season, and age all play roles. FOOD may be the one least understood, or better, the sheer amount and quality of it required. The amount of food of the right composition and size required to grow small fish into huge fish is almost mind-boggling. And it's something that is extremely rare in nature, and darn hard to accomplish in managed waters. Growing season plays an enormous role not only in the the duration of growth periods for bass but, more importantly, in the sheer amount of prey fishes a given water can produce. Southern waters commonly produce multiple broods of prey fishes, while northern waters rarely do. All are important but the best genetics, clean water, and age structure will go nowhere without one heck of a lot of food of the right composition and size for bass from fingerling through... monster. As to the genetics part, genes are potential, heavily influenced by the environment. There's a point in every fish's life where they must "choose" whether to chase pounds or gametes. All choose both, however, the environment makes that choice for them. A dead bass does not contribute to the future. If there is not enough appropriate food to go around, bass will mature -start developing costly gametes- at 10" in length, and still "win the game".
  10. Ggggiant bass! (video added!)

    Those are some nice bass.
  11. Got a yak

    Haven't gotten to this thread in a few days. Does anyone in the area have any suggestions for any good lakes in the greater Orlando area to take out a kayak for the first time? Something with decent launching and where I can maybe catch some fish without going out too far. I was considering Lake Toho, but I've heard of large gators and dirtier water.
  12. How could they make braid nearly invisible? Why would having guides closer together increase casting, wouldn't that be more guides thus more friction? Or do you mean less guides friction?
  13. I haven't seen the boat in person, but I think it's kind of cool. The real cool part is all the new members interest in this boat has brought us!
  14. Good boat for the feeble

    You could jump up to a Lund Pro Guide for that. That's what I'm lusting after. At any rate, good luck in your search.

  16. Today
  17. Rebel wee craw is my most used crank by far in the shallow rovers and streams on central Ohio. Early in the year I fish the Teeny Wee Craw with upsized treble hooks to make it slowly sink to the bottom. With a slow "twitch twitch pause" retrieve I don't know if I have ever had as much success as with that thing. In fast moving water it gets tossed around far too much to be as effective, but in the kind of streams where you can cast to the other side, and wade through *** foot depths it is a killer. Will grab a few rock bass with it as well, which always help keep the action hot.
  18. Wood Carving Time

    Here's a suggestion. It definitely works. Hootie and the blowfish.
  19. Daiwa parts for sale.

    Gold ize spool for alphas/Sol 50 dollars shipped. Silver ize spool from alphas ITO 50 dollars shipped.
  20. Rant

    If I was a better speaker then I woudnt mind making some fishing videos . I have a couple of metal detecting videos on Facebook and I'm not very good at communicating .
  21. So Yall Want To Learn Toledo Bend?

    Looks like a perfect day to be jerking up a few Sac's in the Coop..........
  22. Lowrance Elite Vs Hummingbird Helix

    Speaking of side imaging,do you think one brand is superior to the other?
  23. Smallmouth Squarebills

    I've caught a lot of Smallmouth on the KVD 1.0 and 1.5. The last couple of years I've been throwing both the Spro Fat John 60 and it's smaller 50 counterpart with great success. Both of them run fairly shallow, with the 50 being 0-2'. Unfortunately I fish rivers mainly, so I can't vouch for them on lakes, but they've come through cover great for me, have killer action and hit the bass
  24. St. Croix triumph casting

    I got a Triumph and i think it performs well for a rod in its price range. I have fished with it plenty of times and it did it’s job. I would suggest saving up a few more bucks and getting a BassX.
  25. How long to become a good angler?

    This is pretty much my standard. Here in Ontario, if were talking largemouth I would put that 5 fish bag at 15lbs. It was only this past year that I started to feel like this was a realistic possibility whenever I go fishing. Does it happen all the time? Not even close. But it does happen sometimes and more importantly I feel confident enough that it could happen on any given day.
