  1. Past hour
  2. Need advice. Small inland lake, maybe 3-4 acres in Central Michigan. 25ish feet at its deepest. Water is pretty stained with lots of weeds. One small stream comes into it and another small one flows out but is dammed up so not much water flow. Most of the lake is 2-7 foot deep weed beds. I've been putting everything out there, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, top water frogs, tubes. Dark colors, light colors. No bass this year (4 days out so far) and none last year but lots of pike last year. Haven't tried live bait yet but I'm about to go grab some crawlers. Any tips or advice?
  3. I'm sure not casting 300'. The spool on my Pixy is very shallow. I doubt there's 100 yds of line on it. Regardless, I nearly spool it when I cast.
  4. You could have said this was a used reel. Just sayin.......
  5. Those are the best days ever
  6. Looks hand to have a round, but not sure I could figure how to secure to the deck.
  7. Welp here's the problem. Genius I bought it from had line strung through the holes as you can see. Snipped em out and she's castin perfecto. It still does rattle a bit more than my other casting reels but guess i can get used to it.
  8. According to the dealer it is on consignment through, it was always garage kept and if he couldn't get somewhere indoors to store it when traveling he had a heavy duty cover for it to ride under. It has a stainless prop (didn't list pitch) It has a hot foot So far as i'm aware the guy bought the boat in 2008 and it was his boat until he just recently decided to upgrade. unsure if it has a hydraulic jack plate.

    I got back into town yesterday afternoon and was jonesing to fish so despite the heat I went out there for about 45 minutes. Even at 5 pm it was still 95 degrees out there. It's going to be a hundred out there the next few days but I might try and get in some early evening fishing if I don't melt first.
  10. Today
  11. Don’t you love when you find a ‘spot’ and finally tell someone about it and they say “there?! We’ve been catching them there since the 80’s’ Columbus probably felt similar. You have Navionics on your phone? I always give that a glance when traveling from spot to spot as a non boater
  12. The stock spool in a PX68 will hold about 110 yards of 20lb power pro 8 Slick. If you're casting on a full spool and emptying it, that is around 300 -330ft. Extremely looooooooooong casts.
  13. The main goal is to be able to lob glides and swimbaits while standing in a kayak with a solid platform. Old Town Topwater, 3 Waters Big Fish, Jackson Bite are my current faves. However I also fish some small streams and rivers with decent current. Are these types of boats with stability type hulls hot garbage in a stream? Thanks guys.
  14. I was going to suggest a Pflueger President combo, but I am pretty sure it is above your price range.
  15. Well, not certain what you'd anchor these to on your boat deck, but I find these rubberized wire gear ties to be indispensable and good for about a thousand uses . . . and still counting. What is great about them is just a single twist does the trick for most applications; so, they make for a super fast release, too. I usually have a few just hanging off my kayak's seat to grab if I want to secure something very quickly. They come in different lengths. If not for your purpose, great to have around a boat. Brad
  16. same model I have. I tried the putty in the hull and the transducer won't work. That particular model transducer has to be in the water. Even the chrip wouldn't read correctly.
  17. I love dobyns/slx set up. Both the blank and reel are light. I got my Sierra last christmas from tackle warehouse for the price of the fury. The only difference I notice is the weight. I feel the seirra is lighter. I am budget angler in every way possible but I want quality gear. Both combos were around $200. Man a meet up sounds great. All my fishing buddies chase rockfish so I fish by myself a lot.
  18. I'd recommend the Abu Garcia Veritas in H/Fast.
  19. should do fine, a trd and a 1/16 oz head weight just a little under a 1/4 oz. Somewhere around .222 oz.
  20. Holy smokes , I don’t like the sounds of that trade
