Nw Techniques

Recommended Posts

For the past two years, due to my honey holes being FILLED with places to flip/pitch, I have fished those two techniques 95% of the time. Now, I would say I have these two types of fishing down to a scienece. I am very effective with soft plastics and jigs.

Most of my rods/reels that I have put a lot of money into are longer rods with heavy braid. I recently picked up a 50e and threw it on my Cumara to use as a finesse rig. I'm having a ton of fun on it! Recently started throwiung lipless cranks again, and am now looking to start throwing more reaction baits and expand my horizon.

Anyone else ever "see the light" and start trying new techniques? I'm planning on buying a nice spinning rig and throwing dropshots and shakey heads soon.

I'd have to say one of my latest ones would be downsizing a shaky head worm to a 4" grub. For some reason the short fat grub works alot of times the 5.5" skinny worm doesnt. Mass wise its about the same. The length is the main difference.

I am trying to force myself to learn new techniques every year in order to round myself out as an angler and to make myself more versatile.

I just do it for fun, I'm round enough.

17 rigs and looking for my next one. Maybe we don't really

"need" technique specific rods and reels, but they sure are

a joy to collect!

I agree RW. I am "decent" with a crankbait, I can catch just as many fish as the next dude, but I never fish them.

I like collecting too. :D
