  1. Past hour
  2. That's pretty much how I was taught back in the 80's. Of course over the years I've collected a decent amount of lures. Probably less than most. I can easily fit everything into my boat..actually on hard baits, everything fits in my very big Plano. Soft plastics are a different story. I have several quart bags filled with them. But honestly here...straight black works most of the time.
  3. Gotcha, I figured it was a little bit of work. Thanks for sharing anyways!
  4. I went with the stubborn approach. Tie on one or two lures/techniques and fish them only until I connected the dots. Really frustrating but it forces you to learn and master the technique. Had the mindset to master everything even if meant skunks. Try ysome things out of the comfort zone. Before you go back to a reliable lure fish the new techniques a little longer.
  5. Can some of you all please help estimate the weight of my buddy's catch? No measurements or weight was taken but for reference he is about 6'2. The fish was caught in Oregon. Thanks!
  6. I got some of the Sol Aris gloves by KastKing and they come to the first knuckle, leaving fingertips exposed. They do snag a treble hook now and then but that's a minor inconvenience for avoiding melanoma IMO!!!
  7. Zebco 202 will sling it all. Spool it with 50 lb dacron that has been stretched to 1.76 times it's original length 1) to thin it and 2) to semi fuse it. Just pick the appropriate rod for the lures weight. You'll be covered from shiners to sharks.
  8. As the title suggests, I'm interested in getting a Pop Max in the GG Bass color. I got a deal on White Python and Black Orochi so i would like to find an excellent condition GG Bass for no more than $15. Let me know if you have one. Thanks!
  9. Depending where you fish, what bass species can require different lures and presentations. Add multi species with each specie requiring a different lures and presentations it doesn't take many years to be overwhelmed with tackle choices and presentation techniques to use on any given day. Bass, largemouth, Smallmouth and spotted make the majority bass species we try to catch, each can require specific lures and presentations. You can make it as complicated or as simple as you choose and still catch fish. It really comes down to the individual. If you are a bass angler you can catch bass on a plastic worm anywhere. 1 outfit, bag of weights, hooks and plastic worms and go fishing, it's that simple or is it? Maybe you need 3 bags of different worms or different colors....... Tom
  10. I use the original bronze 2/0 Spider Slider hooks with the Zman worms. The pro Spider Slider has the heavier 3/0 round bend which would probably be fine with a Zoom Finesse worm. I use the Zoom worms a lot on shaky heads without issue.
  11. I realize you're asking about spinning rig. But last week I was prepping for a creek fishing trip and pulled out a 5'6" casting rod and mounted a Shimano ALX baitcaster on it. It was so easy to fish I've taken it twice since then. I wouldn't go longer than 6'. The creek I fished was 15' to 50' in width but my combo allowed easy 25 yards cast with an 1/8 oz spinnerbait so it was a perfect fit.
  12. BPS World Wide Sportsman convertible fishing pants.
  13. price drop and no more PayPal fee
  14. That's just awful. I've got feelings for my Stradics ci4+'s that I can't fully explain.
  15. casts right, reels left with both casting and spinning outfits. KISS.
  16. Today
  17. Unfortunately the cold front in NJ brought some heavy damage with it.
  18. All I know is, no matter if you bring the entire garage plus the kitchen sink, if you aren't catching fish you will wish you had something else.
  19. Needing to thin the herd and looking to sell these two rods, price includes shipping in a hard rod tube. Payment via paypal fam/friends or add 4%. If you have any questions or want them shoot me a message. Interested in both? Then lets make a deal Champion 683C: Used but good condition, few minor scratches but nothing serious, cork sealed with U40. $155 Sierra 766: Like new condition, cork sealed with U40. $125
  20. Quick question about those spider slider heads. Do you use the 3/0 versions (classic) on your finesse wormZ? I paired a Zoom finesse worm with a 2/0 spider slider (pro) and the gap seemed too small
  21. No problem with winds knots yet. I've fished with it 10 to 12 trips, usually 6 to 9 hours a trip. I do occasionally apply KVD line conditioner and always after spooling it. Loose line is the popular cause of wind knots but I believe anytime I've had problems with them it was due to line twist. I use Spro power swivels when fishing spoons to prevent line twist. The 2500 is definitely going to be less problematic with it larger spool in my opinion. If I planned on casting 65 to 75 yards I'd choose the 2500 over a 1000 reel everyday. A 1000 holds 110 yards of #6 while the 2500 holds 200 yards of #6. My average cast with the 1000 is most likely 25 yards and under. Verify your line roller is rotating smoothly. Closing reel manually? Not everybody does.
  22. Spinning reel...LH only. Baitcast reel....either hand.
  23. Truly a man of good taste. 😜 Mike
  24. I wish they would. I go through crappie tubes something fierce when the bite is on. Would love to have some made of Elaztech so they wouldn’t tear up so quickly. I do catch a lot of bass in the spring in ponds on crappie tubes, though
