20 consistent themes in this forum

Recommended Posts

 I have stalked these forums for a while.  I have learned a lot.  The following seem to be consistent themes

1.  Rage tail  yamamoto, keitech and zoom soft baits

2.  Gamakatsu, owner, trokar hooks

3.  People have very strong opinions about hook shape.

4.  Natural or tranlucent colors in clear water (up north, out west), dark or bright colors down south in stained or muddy.

5.  Jig fishing approaches a cult like status

6.  Most people prefer to either fish fast or slow.  Not both. Fast with spinners, hard baits, toads, and slow with worms or jigs.  It is the rare and great fisherman who is good with both.

7.  Braid requires heavy hoooks, 

8. Seibert or Northstar jigs

9.  Senkos might be all I need to buy, but that seems boring

10.  Snell, palomar, improved clinch, San Diego, Albright, Alberto knots

11.  Braid in dirty water, fluro in clear.  Mono?  Do I need mono?

12.  GP, watermellom red flake, june bug, black plastics

13.  Sexy shad, chrome black back, gold black/blue back, fire tiger, citrus shad, crawfish in hard baits

14 . Pay attention when Catt, Tom, Mike S, Big O talk.  I also enjoy Sir Snook alot and Big Bill for different perspectives.  Many others also, but these stand out.

15.  Nearly everyone has too much stuff and has trouble organizing

16.  Jerkbaits and cranks seemed straight forward, but now I realize they are technical to understand and use to their full potential!

17.  Whopper plopper

18.  Structure, cover

19.  Big baits equal big bass except when they don't

20.  Don't let Elastec touch any other baits.

 

What am I missing?

I noticed that you neglected to acknowledge the thousands upon thousands of the great fishing reports, pictures & videos that are such a huge part of this great site.

And how about all the great deals made and currently being offered in the BR Flea Market ? 

Good Stuff right there. 

So yes, Id say you're missing something.

:smiley:

Interesting 2nd post (in 7 years) btw

It's never operator error, it's always the wrong rod, reel, line, or lure!

You forgot one more thing. You should never, under any circumstances, ask about weather bass care about line visibility or not.  Selective harvest versus strict c&r is a dangerous topic to.

Yes, be careful with those and also tread lightly on ethics of bed fishing

This might be one of the best posts I've seen in a while. This pretty much sums up about 70% of the content I see on a daily basis. Haha!

Toss in a little ned, a bit of what rod/reel should I get, and a few stucture/covers, and you're all set

It is a requirement that ANY threads that reference the Ned rig (poop jig) must be at least 7 pages long!  I mean, it's a really complicated technique.

It is funny that someone like myself, who didn't know what the NED rig was prior to joining, that when you look at a huge thread like that you do assume it must be something complicated.  

 

I'm reading through it wondering what I'm missing.  LOL.

Honestly this post just shows where you browse the most. Fishing tackle and general bass fishing. 

 

There is something on here for everyone . From tackle making to help with your boat. And everything in between.

You forgot,

 

21. Kastking reels are inferior as they cost under $100, unless you tried one.

What about "Best rod and reel under $100"

 

That's a staple in this community

You forgot All black cavitron buzzbaits and if tcbass keeps it up the teckel sprinkler frog thing, Buck Perry's spoonplugging. You left A-jay, team9, way2slow, jfranco, and the guy(who's name I can't remember but he posted the bass documentary), fishnkamp, and long typing roadwarrior out of guys to listen too. 

 

Oh and fishmas! Can't forget that

You need mono or mono leaders for surface lures.  FC takes the line down and affects the action of many surface lures by pulling them under on the twitch.

My personal favorite is "I haven't fished in 147 years.  How do I catch bass?"

You forgot the age old question that gets asked a dozen times every winter...

- Fluorocarbon sucks

- Braid is great, with or without a leader

- Gliss is bliss

- Yozuri Hybrid is better than all of them

- Only Catt still throws mono

- Problem is, there is no such thing as monofilament anymore. It's either a monomer, polymer, hybrid, copolymer or some other technical variation. Don't worry if you get them confused and use the wrong term; you will be corrected

- Everybody fishes or throws at structure these days even though nobody can agree on its definition

- You're either a practitioner of Midwest Finesse or a Ned Rig thrower, but likely not both

- Everybody wants to know what the best " " is, but it turns out opinions suggest that everything is the best to someone

- Everyone likes to know what your 1, 3, 5, 10 best lures (or models within a lure type) are, but in reality, nobody asking or answering the question has that few lures, or could ever live with such limited options; but it's always fun to dream anyway

- Could someone please explain the relationship between IPT, gear ratio, leverage, and bicycles again?

- Reel drags are the greatest modern innovation since channel lock pliers
