Hello from Iowa

Good day,

 

I've been a lurker here for awhile and have discovered this is one of the best places to gather information. I've fished since my teens, so, about 40ish years. Mostly gills, crappie, walleye and trout. Though, I've caught my fair share of bass I've never really targeted them. A couple years ago I decided to change that and threw together a few outfits from gear I've collected over the years. I'm now in the process of upgrading, because 30 year old 5'5" Berkley One spinning rods in light power aren't quite cutting it. :D Most of the good gear I use for gills, crappie, walleye and trout is lighter weight SC Avid (pre Avid X). I'm thinking upgrades for bass gear will be Mojo and maybe a LTB thrown in the mix for fun. I am a weekend angler and fish almost exclusively from shore.

 

Take care all!

Hey Bankbasser!

Welcome to the best bass forum (IMHO) around. 

 

Glad you've come back to the fishing world. Like you I took a small hiatus from the angling world after the loss of a long time fishing buddy and the closing of a small Mom and Pop tackle shop I managed. (We were pushed out by a big blue mega store with the first initial W ...hmmm can't imagine who that was) My point being is so much of my gear was either too small, too light or for some species other than our magical green friend when I finally returned to our sport. Ultra light gear was the name of the game back then, but like you said not really up to snuff for LMB.

 

I couldn't believe how things had changed; so many new baits, rods, reels and ways of rigging things...Made this gals head spin just trying to figure out what was hot and what was hype. So wishing you all the best as you navigate your way toward new gear. I know it would have been easier for me if I'd been on this forum!

 

Tight lines!

LM
