  1. Past hour
  2. Money goes so quick when you start putting spinnerbait supplies into the cart.
  3. For me, if I am going to use a jig head and want a slow fall I will use a hollow body. If I want to get it deep with a jig head I will use a solid body. If I want a subsurface I will use a solid body on a T rig with a 1/16 oz pegged weight.
  4. I have not had much luck on the black plopping baits. Low light conditions are about the only time they've done me much good. I'd much rather fish a bone or white colored one.
  5. Solid body baits are going to be more dense, so you're going to get a different sink rate from similar sized baits. IMO, solid body baits are easier to rig because you have more plastic to work with and there's more rigging options. How they wobble is going to depend on the rigging and how soft the plastic is.
  6. No, those frog hooks are way too big for the back of a Hula Popper. You need something like these in a size 6 or 4 depending on the size of the Hula Popper. https://www.jannsnetcraft.com/double-fish-hooks/845244.aspx
  7. I don't know that I'd ever fish it, but I might buy one or two just to have them for nostalgia sake.
  8. You aren't upsetting me and I understand what you're saying but I think you have it wrong. Phenix's lifetime warranty isn't an unlimited warranty. It specifically says so in the link you posted. I'm sorry that you feel misled but the terms are pretty clear. "Accident, abuse, misuse" is what caused your rod to break and what causes all rods that have been in use for 3 years to break. If there were some factory defect in your rod it wouldn't have taken 3 years to show itself. I'm not saying you intentionally did something to your rod but at some point something happened to the blank while in your possession. If rod companies had free replacement on every rod that broke they would go out of business. It would be like wrecking your car and expecting Ford to fix it for free.
  9. It's a different presentation than a Ned rig on a little different tackle when I'm fishing one.
  10. Buggy bands, way less mess. Wore one on my ankle last night all night and didn't get a single mosquito bite.
  11. Got my second Thursday night win of the year this past week.
  12. Saw these also, debating if I need them.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Today
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 15# power pro v2 line.
  21. That's right, but I do. Launching in a couple of hours. Be safe!
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
