Master Bait'r

Shameful amount of non resourcefulness... Have i ever shared my fishing arsenal... Which includes: one combo, a backback of baits, a scale, and yet i catch 8# bass, and have better days than most on this fourum! Why would you spend hundreds of dollars for all these combos, when you can use one for everything(and never break damage or mess up) and take 1 minute to tie on a bait?

You sir, just don't get it! One can never have too many rods, reels and baits!!

Have you ever fished a rod built and outfitted specifically for a certain technique? If you had then your comment would not exist.

 

It makes all the difference for the angler in terms of efficiency and fluidity. Especially in tournaments. Would you rather have to bite off your bait and tie a new one on each time you wanted to change? Maybe, but in a tournament that 30-200 seconds could be time spent fishing because you already have a rod tied with that bait and special reel.

I'd rather have designated set ups for certain baits I plan on fishing. It beats throwing a jig on a medium powered rod or a squarebill on a heavy. I don't spend the time having to tie baits when I want to switch either. It makes sense to me.

1 minute to tie on a bait x 6 baits = 6 minutes, during which time you could catch another 8# fish.

Ya, I agree with all of you in your senarios, but i'm fishing from the bank, and I try to go to parts around a river or lake that very few have gone to(Heavy brush, thorns, just annoying crap) and can't really cary more than one maybe two rods along with my back pack. But if I was in a boat, i would probably have 4-6 combos. I would definatly prefer Ducket rods with Abu Reels though, which I think Slefler has all Ducket rods too.

 I'm actually thinking about getting a new 1) Duckett MIcro Guide 7'2(maybe a 7'6)  Medium Heavy Fast Casting Rod with an Abu Garcia Revo Winch for all around use it for everything. or 2) a Duckett Goast 7'3 Heavy Fast Casting Rod with and Abu C4 or a Shimano Cardiff for Swimbait, Punching, A-Rig(for the river), and frogs. But like i said the only reason i only use one combo is that i can realisticly only cary "1".

Those are Ghosts. All of my set ups are with Ghosts except for my big bait rod which is a St Croix Mojo. I'd like to try a Micro Magic but I just can't swing another setup just yet.

Took my kayak to a pond this afternoon, caught this skinny girl on a half ounce flipping jig with a pit boss for a trailer. Measured 20" long and only weighed 3.74lbs. An exciting fish nonetheless!

Sounds like a potential project! haha. Would love a solid john boat. Currently we're fishing out of a Sea Eagle inflatable but haven't taken it out much because we're having issues with our Minnkota trolling motor.

If you're interested, check out that boat's full build thread in the boat forum. I just finished it up last week.

I was having a pretty uneventful few hours of fishing after work yesterday and I decided to make one last cast, thinking I would go home skunked. I literally said to myself, "Ok, one more cast and that's it", and then this fish came out of nowhere.

Totally not a flattering picture of me, but there's a fish in the photo!

Fishing the lake right by my house this morning with a buddy from work who has been doing well out there. I hate the lake, 5 minutes from the house and I fish it 2 or 3 times a year. Did surprisingly well this morning, mainly on topwater and baby brush hog. Got to one little cut he said a local told him holds big fish. I'd barely gotten "Weird, I never catch anything here", out of my mouth when my bladed jig went weightless. Typical big fish bite on a bladed jig, turned into a very not typical fish for that lake. 4 pounds on the nose and my PB for the lake.

That thing would have been HUGE if you would have caught it during the spawn!   Still a pig though!  :respect-059:

Yep, she was pretty sunk in. Still encouraging to catch a fish like that out of a lake that usually kicks my butt though.

What kind are those blue rods? Are those the Ethos you talk about a lot?

Scouting missions to two new lakes for a few hours each this week. The first has a reputation as one of the few close to me that gives up bass 4lb and higher with regularity. Had an 18"+ wiggle out of the kayak before I could get a pic, and the only other one I snapped was of this skinny 16"-er who gobbled a trick worm. Caught a couple more below keeper size. I'll be back to that lake.

The other lake I knew almost nothing about. Turned out to be a massive dink factory. Absolutely loaded with bass, and lost track of how many I caught, but nothing over 12".

Yes, the two light blue ones are Ethos rods. There's 7 more in the rod locker. The darker blue rods are St.Croix LTBs. There's 5 more of those in the rod locker.
