  1. Past hour
  2. I know this is an old post, but I am also looking to join a bass club in the MD metro area. Also if anyone is looking for fishing buddies, I am looking to meet and make some angling friends. Getting back into fishing after a 10yr hiatus and none of my friends fish. Any input, help or info on bass clubs/tournaments would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  3. The disco green zako looks good on it also.
  4. I am like a lot of people and most active on Instagram. @BagwellFishing It is a handy tool for promoting your fishing stuff and it is fun to look at everyone's catches but times are definitely changing on there too.
  5. I don't use PP but I use Yellow Cortland Master braid a lot. It does fade a little but not enough that I feel it affects anything. And if it leaves residue, it must not be much because I don't even notice it.
  6. Currently weather shows thunderstorms with a 12mph SW wind, not ideal lol. I think i am just gonna put in Spiers and fish around church island. I don't wont to cross any big water if there is gonna be bad weather. Thanks for the help!
  7. My first fish this year was on a green pumpkin shad jackhammer and fluke trailer in the sungill color.
  8. My grandpa taught us whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. What goes around, comes around 😉
  9. Very true most of the water I fish around my area is 3 feet to 6. Gonna fish the rivers this weekend that are substantially deeper and see how that area is. He grass is up on low tides though but the pads aren’t as prevalent. Gotta fix my trolling motor first though
  10. In a small vessel with minimal space, think minimalist... small and lightweight. A soft insulated kid's lunch box will serve for water, a pfd / vest will hold tackle. Consider going with one rod because a second would be in the way casting and landing fish. Spending a bit of time on it to flesh out what you need before jumping into accessorizing it is a sensible tack.
  11. With various finesse jig head sizes available for the Keitech 2.8 FAT (#1 or 1/0 hook size) is anyone fishing the 2.8 on a jig head less than 1/8 oz. (i.e. 3/32 oz. or 1/16th oz.) ? I ask because in shallower water applications (below 10') do you find the rate of fall on the 2.8 size to be too fast with a 1/8th oz. jig size or you find yourself having to reel a bit faster than you would like to keep the 2.8 up a little higher ? ... Gosh , the 2.8 FAT Impact sure is tiny which is creating proper jig head weight doubts (lol !)
  12. Today
  13. Welcome and thanks for bringing this thread back. I didn't know it existed. Lots of good info from guys I interact with now. As far as your issue goes you need to check your HOA rules. Most allocate common ground around ponds. Some don't. Always view your use of the pond as a privilege, not a right. My experience has been to make friends with residents. I've had no issues.
  14. I had a situation just yesterday where a teenager was having difficulty landing fish. I walked over and found out he had just had some sort of nose surgery and was told not to bend over. I gave him a hand and counter to the notion that kids aren't grateful he was very receptive. He told me that he was just getting into fishing and was using a very cheap spincast outfit with a half ribbontail worm on a tube head. I made a friend that maybe I can help develop his skills. I'll be 65 in a few weeks and this made my day.
  15. Curious what people think of them, haven't seen much for reviews. I'm thinking this or Tatula LT
  16. Chad Hoover posted a great video a few months ago. Instead of dragging jigs with a rod, he uses his reeling hand to grab the line just after the reel, and lightly pull line. That way, his grip hand is comfortable, and he can detect bites, yet still be plenty close enough to the reel handle to reel and and set the hook.
  17. Chatterbaits are one of those things that you can throw, and almost guarantee to get bit. The key is finding how the fish want it retrieved. Experiment with it. If you know fish are there, but you’re not getting bit, try a different retrieve.
  18. The Boonedox system is great... if you have a kayak that can support it. And honestly, it probably wouldn’t be hard for a kayak manufacturer to make them factory ready for them. But these companies are so proprietary- if it’s not their’s, or their design, they don’t want it near their kayak. Look at FeelFree and their useless track system.
  19. Deep cranking, especially large deep crankbaits like a 10XD, and swimbaits you need to retrieve very slowly.
  20. I'm a 100% shore guy and a 90% dropshot guy, and catching fish on a dropshot in less than a foot of water is a regular occurrence.
  21. omfishingsinkers.com is legit and where I buy my tungsten. The only other place I'd consider buying tungsten would be in bulk from a vendor from alibaba, but I'll only cross that bridge if they ever ban lead here in CA.
  22. I have a Silver Max reel that every once in awhile on a cast will make a type of crunch or a grind noise and the handle will start spinning. It casts perfectly fine most of the time and it doesn't act up in any other way. However when it does this it slows the lure so fast or momentarily stops momentum, that it puts such an immediate strain on the rod that I'm convinced it's going to snap it. What is going on here?
  23. That is a very interesting app and I hadn’t heard of it. I was nearly tempted to get it but I feared I might use it too much as a crutch if it is that good of an app. So until my mental and physical faculties fail, I will continue to use my brain and two hands to do most everything. Maybe I’ll buy that app when I turn 75, lol. If if my son decides to pursue something in the stem field, I’d get it for him. Thanks for sharing.
  24. I found almost 30 in my front yard (I never find them), where I cut out 5 big cedar trees this winter. My wife and I don't eat them, but my parents love them so I gave them to my parents who ate them all that night and said they were great. I wouldn't have ever found them except I was going to cut out the saplings that had been growing under the trees and then chainsaw the stumps out as close to the ground as I could get and haul off the logs. Noticed them when I started cutting down the saplings.
  25. Send it my way. I haven’t done math in any capacity for decades now but I have been helping my daughter with college level “algebra”. I am amazed that I still remembered a lot of it and if I didn’t, a quick read of her book and I was like, “oh right. I remember, lol.” I am am hoping to make what is called a hegalong and I know nothing about how to make it. Interestingly enough, whatever mathematics is involved for making this flute might come in handy and at least be some good mental exercise. Send it to me. I did study some EE back in the day but don’t ask me about making a thevenin equivalent circuit, alright, lol? valemax154avvm@rocketmail.com
