  1. Past hour
  2. No. Just no. I tried that rod first. No. It's the worst thing I ever cast.
  3. I may have a lefty Met MGL kicking around 😁
  4. With the super fluke I rig it texposed on a 4/0 ewg hook. I use a fine wire hook if I want to keep it on top. I will use a heavy wire hook in the same size if I want to go a little deeper. If I want to get down below 10ft. I will use a weighted swimbait hook. Caught my personal best last summer doing this. I use a 7ft. 3in. medium action baitcaster with 12lb copoly. I will bump up to a medium/heavy baitcastee with 15 lb copoly in heavy cover. I only use the super fluke jr on a drop shot or carolina rig.
  5. I just discovered them from a post on here. I will be ordering from them in the near future. Congrats on the new purchase and hope you enjoy it.
  6. I have a 7'3" rod that I flip and pitch with from shore. I learned to go at more of an angle, like have the rod between my knee and waist. Doing this gives me no issues. On a side note, you might be able to just cut the but end of the rod off instead of purchasing a new rod. Might be able to post in the rod making section and ask. From what I remember you can take of 6" without it affecting the action of the rod.
  7. Alabama in August is miserable. 95 degrees and up for the highs with high humidity.
  8. Yea. Happened to me one of the 5 times I used it. That was the last time. I’m very disappointed with these reels. Tatula SV backlash less and cost less.
  9. Mine go out on spinning gear, 8lb mono to tiny swivel, 18” of same mono line to 4/0 EWG in the super fluke.
  10. Thanks I check cabelas has it.
  11. I prefer to catch bass that are 3 lbs and up, but I’m not going to go home if I’m catching 12 inchers.
  12. That’s definitely not Smackdown. I’m sure TW will make things right.
  13. Another good one is Smelly Jelly in Bass Feast. After rubbing that on baits the bass love you. Cabelas used to sell it.
  14. It doesn’t. Lol if light was ALWAYS better there’d be no debate. Now, line size choice for moving baits is all about the depth. You can run a trap in 20lb mono to keep it up high in thick grass or shallow flats. The way your looking at line... don’t. LOL
  15. 2 of my fishing buddies have had the same issues with their Curado DC reels. One of them had it happen twice, once on two different reels (he has bought 10 of them). The other guy has had it happen once on the one reel that he purchased. I put a post on a local forum (***) and another guy said he had the same issue. The line gets caught / stuck in between the thumb bar and the side of the right side plate. It happens during casts and when it happen you can’t get it out without cutting the line. I too have 9 of these reels now and I was concerned so I called Shimano and they said they weren’t aware of any problems like that. I only fish about 10 days per year so my reels aren’t used that frequently. Is anyone else having this issue?
  16. Hello and welcome from Upstate/Central NYS. I'm new myself, and kind of like you, time to start getting out and enjoying fishing again after a long layoff!
  17. Hello and Welcome to Bass Resource ~ A-Jay
  18. Thank you. When I saw this forum, I kind of figured was a good place to start!
  19. Welcome to the forums and back to fishing! There are a lot of knowledgeable folks from around your area and just in general on this site. You'll be landing them in no time!
  20. I lose a lot of jigs to rip rap. Other than that I tend to lose more baits fishing from the bank than fishing from a boat. On the flip side of that I find a lot of baits with rusted off hooks while walking the bank so I guess it works out in the end.
  21. I often throw big baits as I find it more enjoyable than fishing with conventional sized lures. I have little to no interest in the smaller bass I see cruising around and I willingly give up bites to improve my odds of catching the big bass. If I get tired of being skunked there are plenty of of other species in my area I find more fun to catch than small to average bass.
  22. Hello everyone, I used to fish a lot when I was younger, but in my late 20's, life got busy, I moved away, and haven't fished since. I'm now about to turn 60 this summer, and since I took an early retirement due to back and joint issues, decided I'm way to bored, and need a hobby to get me out of the house and into the outdoors that I love. Fishing immediately came to mind, since I used to love it so much. Admittedly, I'm pretty rusty, and having no boat, not really sure where to go around here (upstate NY..more specifically, Rochester area) but I thought I'd start here. Bass was always my favorite fish to go after. but honestly, I'm happy catching pretty much anything. I just like to get out and enjoy the sport. Stumbled upon this forum, and so....here I am. Any tips or ideas would be welcome, but I'm sure as I hunt through the threads, I'll pick up some ideas as to where to start. I'm hoping to find some shore spots to dip my line, but also, places where I can rent a small boat to get away from the shore crowds. If there's anyone around who would like a fishing partner, feel free to hit me up, but alone or with a new friend, I'm bound and determined to get out and drown some baits.
  23. I've got several Kistler's (8-10). My favorite for spinner baits is the MH 6'10" mag2. I'm chunking 1/2 oz double willow leaf. The KLX feel & reel S2 (glass/graphite) hybrids are excellent for deep diving cranks too. FM
  24. I just ordered it. In garlic scent. Thanks
