Re: TW's redesigned website

In my experience, a Marketing or Business Development Department is trying to show the owners, some forward thinking progress in their work. This has a lot to do with justifying their employment there. So when the president asks the department heads, what have you been doing with your time, they can...

Re: Owner Treble Hooks

i dont know if its the wider gap, or the shorter shank, but the st-35 seem to bend a lot less. i have had a ton of bent hooks with the st-36 (and i know that comes with the light wire construction), but none with the st-35's. the st-35 and gamakatsu nanofinesse are the only trebles i use any more. ...

Re: A classic returns

These seem to be the "regular sinking" L-minnows. Has anyone tried the "heavy sinking" version ? For each length, it is nearly twice as heavy. I have considered purchasing some of the short heavy ones, but fear that the action may be poor. It seems the heavyweight sinking ones are only available ov...

Re: Gamakatsu Goes Maxo on Nano

The Nano Smooth Coat is No-Nonsense. Even when I pick up a bait out of my crankbait box- I get stabbed by these G Finesse Trebles. The points truly penetrate effortlessly. Can't wait to try the MH version of the trebles.

Re: Finesse flip jigs

I've been using the D & L Baby Advantage for the last 6 or 7 years. The Bass really eat this jig and best of all, they stay buttoned up. Lots of realistic skirt colors and good hook seal the deal.

Re: Favorite Or Greatest Bass Fisherman Of All Time

The Greatest is KVD. This view is shared by regular non-tournament Bass fisherman and most of Kevin's peers. Those how have had the chance to fun fish with Van Dam, say that no one is able to factor in all the variables quicker and as effectively as him and to start catching sizable Bass.
