  1. Past hour
  2. Saw these also, debating if I need them.
  3. I first read about Slider Fishing in Fishing Facts magazine - mid to late 70's. Slider heads were hard to come by but eventually enough folks asked about them and the local tackle store started carrying them. A professor pal of mine bought the book, basically because he had more disposable income than me at that time. I read it after he got done. I consider it just a basic fishing textbook, I've acquired a copy and refer to it from time to time. Whenever I don't know what else to do, "polishing the rocks" is my go to technique. You don't necessarily have to use finesse gear to polish the rocks - the Biffle Bug is a perfect example of a power version of that.
  4. I’ll be off next couple days,PM me if you wanna come fish here. There are plenty of bass but to be honest, I fish more crappies than bass these days. Don’t worry about that rich guy, he charge huge fee so he can live among richest in OC. Lol
  5. Fish seem to be extremely durable and very fragile at the same time. I've caught them with massive, gaping wounds and spines so disfigured it was a wonder they could swim. Then I've had ones that seemed to be hooked in an area that should have been fine, and they go belly up about as fast as I can get them unhooked and back in the water despite careful handling. Fish live in a dangerous world, lots of things out there "can" injure or hurt them, I just do my best to try and be careful with them and not cause any extra harm to them.
  6. I'm in agreement with the previous post - your batteries need to be the same age - not roughly the same age - but the same age.
  7. Original has caught me tons of fish over the years. I see no reason why this new version wouldn't catch them. The rear hook looks kind of small in the photos, might just be a weird angle in the photo.
  8. I am far from bashing the company in my post. My point still stands, the warranty is a joke. This is a replacement program from start not a lifetime warranty, limited lifetime warranty or even a 1 yr replacement warranty so it should not be stated as such. All I wanted to do was bring to light the company used a very strong term "Lifetime Warranty" but in all actuality they offer a replacement plan which again is not warranty. The definition of warranty is a guarantee or promise to repair or replace a product at no cost to the consumer. I get you may be embarrassed to send it back after a extend period of time but i think this is what any company hopes for. I am not trying to upset you here just making a point.
  9. That's right, but I do. Launching in a couple of hours. Be safe!
  10. For LMB, the best bet is to go south (San Diego lakes), north (Casitas, Castiac) or inland (Diamond Valley, Perris). There are literally no public lakes in Orange County where you can launch a boat. Zero. It sucks if you don't live on one of the few small "development" lakes in the area. I do, but my guide fees are exorbitant... 😁. Maybe @JustJames is more reasonable out at Canyon Lake (about an hour away) Most of the saltwater fishing is on cattle boats, which I find to be as much fun as driving in freeway traffic. Avoid the piers, they are also overcrowded. You would be the only one there who speaks English and doesn't keep every single thing they catch. There are alot of great things about Orange County & Newport Beach, but as a 55 year resident, I have to be honest that fishing is not one of them. Enjoy the temperate weather, hang out at the Wedge & watch the surfers eat it, go to Knotts Berry Farm instead of Disneyland and if it is cool enough, hike in Trabuco Canyon. Save your fishing trip for when you go to Texas or Florida.
  11. Today
  12. I have used Fishsticks Lure enhancer for about 5 years now. I like the applicator (like a large chapstick) and have had good results. I fish a lot of no feel baits (ned rig, weightless worms & flukes), so there are quite a few bites I never feel. It is nice to see the line going in a direction it shouldn't be as the bass hangs onto and swims off with the bait. The crayfish model has a distinctive smell, the minnow is a bit milder.
  13. I was using the shimano slx I’m considering upgrading the reel.
  14. It’s not just the rod. The rod, reel line and lure have to all work together.
  15. This is good to know, definitely sounds like may have to drill the transom for bolts then - and will use your sleeve trick if I go that route for sure. Do you have any opinions of buying square aluminum tubing and having a welder weld that on to raise the transom? Only concern is the clamp bolts would be on that new piece of tube At speed the water flows right at that small top plate you can see in my pic about 1/2-3/4" above the tunnel - I think its the seam where the lower unit can be removed; this is probably 4" above the cavitation plate, so just not sure how high I can get away with raising it? Some guys told me these smaller outboards cavitation plates are meant to be underwater some, but not sure if that is correct. Did you just adjust the height on yours until it ran the best? Is your cavitation plate right at the surface of the water that comes out of the tunnel?
  16. If this includes shipping im interested in the 7'6" XH
  17. "MA fishing laws pertaining to lead". I typed it in and it came right up.
  18. I've very done well on dropshot with small Keitech impact fats (2.8 and 3.3 inch baits). Remarkably successful. Also had success with chatterbait with a craw trailer fished very slow with pauses. Love to use buzzbaits and walking baits for topwater at night.
  19. My 40 hp Tohatsu is sitting 1 1/8 - 11/4" above the tunnel.
  20. It's all about getting the tension and brakes set properly. I use my Fuego-Aird-X H/F spooled with 50# briad to toss hollow frogs all the time.
  21. I used a MH ugly stik spinning combo with 65 lb braid. Agreed you can only chuck it so far and maintain good contact. I thought about buying a "Tile" or similar tag for lost items to insert inside the Deeper in case I lost the whole thing. It would be cool if you guys started a thread on using the Deeper in the electronics section. I'd love to hear more about who is using it and what they find it helpful for (but don't want to threadjack).
