  1. Past hour
  2. Seaguar Finesse Fluoro is basically Tatsu and fishes excellent on spinning gear. Would be worth checking out as well. It's even on sale right now on TW.
  3. Mine's only 45" and I still hit the dang thing if it's not lowered all the way down. I hope I'm still a few years away from needing a new one, but another option and more competition couldn't hurt. Really been a fan of my 93SV's (which I know are dinosaurs now in the electronics world), so I'd be pretty interested to see what they come out with.
  4. I picked up a Norman's NXS this past week in the "Nutter Shad" color. It's a pretty sweet looking little crank and supposed to run right in that 10-14 foot depth that is about the max I like to crank so that works perfect. The lip design looks like it's going to get down quick and hopefully maximize the amount of time it's in the effective range. Now I just need it to stop raining so the fish can get off the banks and I can actually use it!
  5. A lot can be done with $100-$300 depending on what you'll use it for.
  6. Compared to a few of my most recent trips, today was tough sledding. Wind was blowing pretty good but not on anything I wanted to fish. Still put in a full day but there was a whole lot of casting and very little catching. First fish of the morning was decent though. btw - as of now, I am officially caught up with my video edits. A-Jay
  7. Found another 90 Whopper Plopper a couple weeks ago, bone colored. Changed hooks and straight into my box. I've now found 9 ploppers in less than a year, I guess the benefit to them being so popular.
  8. I've been using the Owner Cover Shot hooks in a 1/0 and they've been perfect for 4-5 inch baits.
  9. It baffles the mind why some pros don't have their troll motor shafts shortened. I would be breaking rods during sidearm casts with the motor as pictured
  10. The Field & Stream sun gloves at Dicks Sports, are a good budget option, they are super thin, light and dry quickly. But color options are limited , not bad though for $14.99 but Fish Monkey and Huk would be a more premium option with far more color options !
  11. That's quite a price range. What will this be used for? Or just an all-around setup?
  12. Looking to buy a new setup around 1-3 hundred preferably a lews what’s the best out there
  13. Today
  14. Thanks, I just pulled the trigger on these. Been using NRS gloves, but they're more suited for colder weather. I think these will fit the bill and the price was right.
  15. If I’m not catching Bass on standard size lures from 1/4oz up to 3/4oz , I first consider what could make the bite slow ? Or if my fish have moved out of the area? If I know there are still bass in the area, I will try to more closely mimic the forage while making sure Im covering the highest percentage targets with multiple casts from multiple angles. This gives me a better idea about how catchable the bass are under those given circumstances. Only when I’m absolutely sure the standard stuff isn’t going to work, do I then change gears to finesse tactics. Or if I’m certain I’m on a body of water that calls for finesse then I’m going to be prepared to throw finesse . Ultimately I prefer to focus on better quality bass with standard size lures ; and sometimes this means fewer fish catches per outing. Anyway just my 2 cents , hopefully it’s helpful to someone !
  16. Sorry to open up an old thread, but this fits. I found the Deps Buzzjet Jr. pictured below snagged on a boat cover today. It was about 25 yards from a common area, so I am guessing the original owner was fishing from bank, made a bad cast and decided to break off the line rather than ring the owners doorbell to ask to retrieve it. At a Tackle Warehouse price of $25.95, I would have swam over to the dock to get it back!! My 3 most expensive lures (this and a pair of Gantrel Jr's) were all found lures. Either I am way too cheap to buy expensive gear or teenagers in Orange County have money burning a hole in their pockets.
  17. Nose hooked I use a 1 or 2, tx I use a 3/0
  18. I rarely go small and rarely go big . Ill go big when deep cranking because it is necessary . I fish med size lures because they cast better on my equipment . The more effortlessly I can cast the more accurate I am and that should get me more and bigger fish .
  19. I love to fish, and loving to fish means I love to catch fish, so I'll take numbers. Only time I would care about size is tournaments and for a PB.
  20. I punch while bank fishing a lot, I do it just like if I were in a boat. Plastics anything without a lot of appendages!
  21. I've tried several and settled on the KastKing Sol Armis gloves. They've been very durable and have extra protection in a few spots on the palm and fingers that have saved my hands from countless fins and gill plates. Price is good and they have some nice color options. They also fit my hands nicely, which I've had issue with, apparently I have short fingers. Cabela's Guidewear gloves were, surprisingly, the worst gloves I've tried. They were expensive and barely lasted a few months before the seams started to come unsewn.
  22. Three years after I started kayak fishing, I sold my glitter boat. I get it, they are fast and they are nice, but after living many years in the fast lane, I was ready to slow down and take in everything that had been passing me by. "Mushin" brothers.
  23. when i'm on ponds and small lakes i will usually downsize to light line and small lures for the action of catching ... i like medium spinning rods rated with 1/8 lures and up in 5'6", 6' and 6'6" spinning rods... Always have a baitcaster depending on the circumstances ... good fishing ...
