FMJ Vs PIII Bearing down

How does the Destroyer USA FMJ compare and contrast to the Phase III Bearing down as a jig/worm rod? Had the PIII bearing down and loved its feather weight for the power, and superb sensitivity but it was a bit short and didn't have quite the tip I like for roll casting and skipping. Wondering if th...

Color selection simplified

The last couple years I really simplified my color selection and it has really helped me as a fisherman. All soft plastics and jigs: Black and blue for low light and murky water, green pumpkin for clear to stained water with sun Crankbaits: Chartreuse patterns for low light / murky water. Shad or bl...

Re: Black topwaters?

All my topwaters in all types are either black or white. Black when its overcast or low light and white when the suns out or when they aren't hitting black when its overcast.

Re: Crankbait question

The only time you don't want a crankbait deflecting bottom is if fishing weeds. Any other time you always want deflection as it is what typically triggers strikes. Pick a crankbait that dives slightly deeper than the depth your fishing. If you go way deeper you will get hung up allot and will overwo...

Re: Tenryu UL Rods?

Thanks for the help! Yea for panfish its hard for me to justify paying over $400 plus international shipping if I can also get a great rod under $200. Will stick with the Shimano Soare series based on recommendations. For the weights I am using and since its for bluegill and crappie which of the bel...

Re: Tenryu UL Rods?

I don't really want to go over $400. But $150 to $400 works, and would like to be in the 6 to 7 foot range preferably at least 6ft 6. Which one of these would you recommend for bluegill and crappie fishing with 1/64 to 1/32 oz jigs on 2 or 3 lb line? Shimano Soare BB Ajing S610LS Ajing Daiwa Ajing X...

Re: Tenryu UL Rods?

Looking or an ultra light bluegill and crappie rod. Heaviest would be 1/32 oz jig with little curly tail for crappie and 1/64 oz for bluegill. So it might work out good as I am looking for something a tad softer than the G Loomis trout rods.

Tenryu UL Rods?

How are the Tenryu rods? They look amazing but aren't cheap either. How would they compare in fishing to say the GLX trout series or Megabass Destroyer f0 UL rods. I have a Phase 3 f0-68XS deep throat that I really like but could use something just a tad softer, I was looking at the Tenryu Rayz Alte...

Re: Lucky craft bds 2

I have one of them and it is a good big bass catcher it is a rare plastic bait that "hunts" great and has a lively wiggle at all speeds. But you could get the actual custom balsa or old Bagley's baits that behave similar for much less.

Re: Chatterbait rod

Very true, my post was assuming the use of Flourocarbin line. Braid with a graphite rod leads to allot of missed bites as there isn't enough give for them to get the bait deep. But braid with a fiberglass deep cranking type rod can be a good option as you have similar overall give to a moderate fast...

Re: Chatterbait rod

Your natural hook set determines your ideal chatterbait rod. If you use a monster hook set like Brett Hite where you walk backwards and slam the hook home then you are better off with a MH / H glass type deep cranking rod like the Evergreen Combat Stick, MH Flexlite, Dobyns 765 glass, etc. to keep f...

Re: Gama nano finnese treble hooks

I use these on all my Vision 110s and some of my other crankbaits as well. Super sharp, thin wired, and still strong. Love them for a jerkbait as often the hookset is just the jerking of the bait and thats all it takes to hook up with these. I also don't lose many fish with them. Of not is they are ...
