Used Baitcaster For First Time Today, Think I Am Hooked

Recommended Posts

Pun intended...anyways got early christmas gift. My wife is the best. Got a silver max (really wanted an h2o mettle express) but couldnt find a lefty. I was really impressed with it. Once i figured out the drag brakes spool tension this thing was a blast. It was much easier to use than i expected and casts a mile. I like having control of where i can stop the cast etc. I am going to enjoy 2015 with this reel. I have it paired up with ugly stik gx2 7 ft mh rod and 50 lb braid. I think it is a very solid combo for under 100 bucks. I am glad to join the bait caster club

The bait monkey comes and night and logs into your online retail accounts. About a week later you unsuspectingly receive a nice box of tackle along w/the BILL

Oh yeah i actually have met him already. Sold a ton of extra gear already. New to baitcasters not lures haha. I have an addiction to shopping. If you guys knew the number of golf clubs ive owned it would just be scary

I think the golf club monkey is a distant cousin, if I am not mistaken.

It gets crazy expensive thats for sure. I had a spread sheet going. When i got to 100 drivers i deleted it. That was in 2010 or so. I started playing in 06 and im only 24. I just try not to think about it now

You may have a problem... just sayin.  Lucky enough for you this is a great support group and we would never encourage you to purchase unless it was absolutely needed.

I have a feeling you're going to have problem, lol.  I'm hopelessly struggling with the monkey myself.

What is a golf club??? What is a golf, and why does one need a club to dispatch it?

That's a great accomplishment. I've owned my first for about a month now, and am loving it. My transition was very smooth. Don't believe everything they tell you about backlashes, they're not half as bad as people make out. (DON"T try to pick out the backlash-google how to get out a backlash).

Which is why when you give us 2 choices on what you want to buy, we tell you to buy both....cause you need both.  :teeth:

 

Congrats on the new outfit.  I have a feeling you will wind up like i have.  With about 35 more rods and reels than you NEED.

Welcome to b/c club. A spinner will be an after thought soon enough. (Although they prove useful for certain applications). I have turned a few people to b/c's, at first they were reluctant after some time they could't  imagine their fishing without one.  :eyebrows:

This is the truth

I started with a lews speed spool and a cabelas Rod pro guide

150$ total

Now I have 9 reels and at least 2 rods for each

Not counting spinning things

It's a disease

Remember, you NEVER have enough rods.

 

It is a rule of bass fishing.

 

The Bait Monkey loves you!

 

Merry Christmas.
