  2. Rumor is: St Croix to announce next week they will discontinue the sale of USA rolled sc2, sc3 and sc4 blanks. USA rolled SC5 blanks will be available exclusively through Rodgeeks.
  3. Maybe a nice Classic IMX sjr782s would do.

    How necessary is a baitcast rig?

    I have some old In-Fisherman magazines from about '91 or '92 that have full articles about finesse bass fishing with spinning tackle. A couple of them even go into detail about similar tactics for pike fishing. If I remember right, the train of thought at that time was to throw finesse baits for fish that were slow to bite or when fishing cold water. We have come a long way since and methods and tactics change as we learn more.

    Swim jigs

    Those look great! I was thinking about attending the show but with the storm coming I'm probably going to wimp out and stay close to home this weekend. Good luck with your sale!!
  9. Almost the last of my shipments - just waiting on the rod for the President BC in this picture. Also add a Plano Weekender bag to this list - that's going to be my plastics bag...the Cabelas will be for everything else. Only 2 chatterbaits (Green Pumpkin, Shad) because I already had a Black in my bag. Leashes are for my rods and anything else I want to secure - paddle maybe even though I've got a TM for the canoe...need backup.

    The Road To The Super Bowl 2019

    When the Chiefs and Patriots face off in the AFC championship game on Sunday, they’ll do so on a fresh playing surface. The Chiefs grounds crew has been hard at work the past several days to get the turf at Arrowhead Stadium in good condition after a snowy divisional playoff game against the Colts. The Chiefs hadn’t planned on resodding the field, but they weren’t left with much of a choice on account of the condition the field was left in following Saturday’s game. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2019/01/18/kansas-city-chiefs-arrowhead-stadium-resod-field-afc-championship-game/ A-Jay

    Why I Don't Buy Tackle From Ebay

    I try not to pattern my behavior based on the exception rather than the norm, and I don’t believe the majority of sellers or even a large minority of them are criminals.

    Inexpensive spinning combo

    That reel would look real nice on one of those new Shock rods. To the OP another suggestion is the Kastking Centron 2000 combo on Amazon for $59 https://www.amazon.com/KastKing-Centron-Spinning-Reel-Stainless/dp/B07D6NH8TR It is one of the better sub $30 reels I have ever handled.

    Bass fishing Vs other sports

    I don't consider "skateboarding" to be a sport since my grandfather broke his hip because of one. He was drunk one night and came home and his great grandchild had left his skateboard on the floor. He went upstairs, slept off the night before and came down the next morning. He had a hearty breakfast, took out the trash, fed the dog and took a nap. When he woke up from his nap he did some dusting around the house, rehung a crooked picture of Elvis standing next to Richard Nixon and wrote out some checks for some bills. Then, as he was walking out of the house, it happened. He fell over trying to pick up the skateboard that was lying around. And that is how he broke his hip because of a skateboard.

    Is this what you are referring to: https://www.bassresource.com/fishing/hope_chronicles.html It's at the bottom of the article, although the hole article is a great read.

    Show off your Stuff

    I’d say roughly about 8hrs total. 1-2hrs in taking it apart and prepping all the parts. 1hr worth of cleaning all the parts for when it was finished. 5hrs in the whole paint process. Then another 1hr to put it all back together after it sat for a week.

    Ok - and I hear you about the bills - So any you have lying around that you Just Hate, can totally be mailed directly to TW for me - just write "Towards A-Jay's Bill" on the envelope - they'll know what to do. A-Jay
  19. Interestingly enough the SLX has the lighter weight spool of the two and would be the better finesse reel in stock form although you can buy a Ray's DIY spool for the tat for like $35. The 100 is billed as the finesse reel due to there being two other Tatula reels based on the older Tatula platform with higher capacity spools. The Tatula 150 and 200.

    How do I fish a pink worm for stocked trout?

    Use a #6 or #8 snelled octopus hook. Run a sewing needle through the worm and tie the hook at the end towards the head. Start at the skinny end and push it towards the thick end. Depending on current (if stream fishing), use a weight heavy enough to keep the bait down but light enough that it doesn't sink to and stay on the bottom. You want the weight to barely tick the bottom and drift downstream. Split shots are simple to achieve this, but us steelhead fishermen use slinky weights due to them being near snag-less. You'll need to experiment with weight but once you find it, you'll get a nice drift and a very natural presentation. If you're using a spinning reel, keep the bail open and let it drift. Cup your hand on the spool and wait for a hit. Once you get a bite, set the hook, close the bail, and reel it in. I use this simple rig for steelhead, stockers, and smaller stream trout alike. I have success fishing it with marabou jigs, beads, spawn, nightcrawlers, wax worms, and plastic trout worms.
  21. All my paper info was destroyed during the Jan 17th 1994 earth quake. I agree with Catt regarding more fisherman targeting bed fish during the full moon cycle because it's generally accepted that is when the majority of bass tend to spawn in the spring. More anglers = more fish caught statistically. The same is true for me, if I am spending 100% more time fishing during pre spawn my numbers go up. The fact still remains my numbers were up during the day's surrounding the new and full moon verses the 1/4 and 3/4 moon phases. Confidence tends to breed more confidence as the saying goes. If I fished during the 1/4 & 3/4 moon phases as focused as the new & full phases would I have been as successful? I did and wasn't. There are definate active feeding times and to determine those you need to be on the water fishing. Trophy bass fishing isn't for everyone because you spend a lot of time fishing without catching anything. People think you catch a lot of bass until that giant comes along and catch it, not true. Giant bass aviod everything that alarms them, their world is quite with everything in it's place, if it's not they leave or don't bite, that is how they got to be big old bass. Tom

    Damaged Hudd - Possible repair??

    Glad you got it back. I don’t know about filling voids but mend it works awesome. They say you should store it in your fridge though because it goes bad unless kept cold. Maybe be if you need to fill a void you could use a chunk of another soft plastic of the same color and meld them together.
