Re: GY Senko good alternatives?

Honestly I have not found a replacement for the gary senko, but I have found uses where a yum dinger is actually better. The gary senko produces more fish for me but the dinger is no slouch. I love to pitch senkos into cover to see if theres a fish I missed with my jig hiding under there. Yum dinger...

Re: Doomsday Tackle Reaper

I personally am becoming a fan of doomsday tackle in general. I fished mid November in the occoquan river in 40 degree water with the 3.8 in green pumpkin. I matched the 3.8 with an ike mini flipping jig 1/2oz, it was a grind but the 3.8 produced a nice chunky 3.5 lb large mouth. I personally prefer...

reins ring craw

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the reins ring craw. My primary texas rig/jig trailer is the strike king rage craw. I was curious about this craw after seeing some online videos. I was thinking these would be perfect for upper potomac small mouth. I have these in the cart,...

Re: secret for fluoro and spinning

I like sunline sniper in 7lb but have also used invisline 6lb. I use a shimano stradic fj 2500 and have never had a problem with handling. The 6lb invisline is best handling fluro I have used on spinning gear it just stretches a little more than sniper which can be a good thing for finesse fishing.

Re: Mono Vs Fluoro

I prefer fluoro over mono. Flouro sinks, is thinner, tougher and less visible. Mono is softer, gets frayed easier and has a shorter life span. I only use fluro leaders on my spinning setup 20 lb power pro to 12 lb sunline sniper(usually what is left over after spooling my bait casters). I have never...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I want to start off by saying the conquest is bueatiful. The craftsmanship was perfect as far as I could tell the rod had no blemishes. I was surprised that the conquest did not come with a rod sleeve like my nrxs, being that the conquest is suppose to be the new flagship rod. Besides the rod sleeve...

Re: megabass hein vs 852C JWR

I meant to say 3/8oz total weight lol. I ended up calling the tackle trap and was convinced on the new shimano gloomis conquest rod 842c mbr. I'll see how this rod performs as a finesse stick, but it will probably take over my nrx 853JCR as my general purpose jig rod. Thanks to the guys at tackle tr...

Re: curado 70 drag slipping

Thanks for the advice guys, I've wiped all the reel butter off and it made the situation a little better. My problem as far as I can tell is that, after I start casting around 30 mins. It seems water gets into my drag and that is what causes the slippage. I've taken the reel apart to find water insi...

Re: Curado 71 rough knob

I was using eddies fast bearings when the noise was happening. Bought shimano handle bearings and replaced them. The noise is gone and my knobs are smooth. Kind of a bummer for 10 dollars for 10 bearings was a deal, but id rather pay for quality lol

Curado 70 drag sliping?

I recently purchased a curado 70 and its been great. Recently, I took the reel apart for maintenance. Ever since I took it apart and put it back together the reels drag starts slipping/squeaking after a few casts. When I get home I usually take it apart and there is water on the drag washer. After d...

Re: Shimano curado 71 handle knob not smooth

Thanks for the help I was using eddies fast bearings for the knobs. I ordered handle bearings from shimano and the noise is gone. The knobs are smooth now, but for some reason one of my knobs spins better than the other one. Its the same on my metanium too.
