Re: What have you lost while fishing?

Just weighed a bass. Bass in one hand, scales in the other. Threw the scales in. Error. :oops:

Re: Daiwa LT spinning reels

No. But spinning an empty reel straight out of the box is very different to fishing with it.

Re: Daiwa LT spinning reels

Glad it's not just me then. I've found that if I set the drag knob to a north south kind of position I hit it less often than if it's east west, so as a 1/4 turn doesn't make much difference to the actual setting, I try to do that.

No. Tatulas have a long axle unlike the spools you have.

Corto prototype 6'1" review

I bought the rod on recommendations from here. It's the GNCPS-612L-HS model for clarity as the range of rods is quite confusing. The rod arrived in the week and I had my first chance to use it this morning. Very impressed. It has a very crisp high modulus blank and it built with the very light singl...

Daiwa LT spinning reels

I have a couple of the LT reels, a Fuego and a Ballistic, and really like them. I have one gripe though and wonder if it's only me, or it's a common issue. The new design has the drag knob reaching nearly all the way to the spool lip and it is very easy to move. I find myself brushing against it a f...

Re: Reels Over Rated Or Under Rated

The SS Sv was the first sv spooled reel I owned. I liked it well enough, but the pitiful drag made me sell it. I tried various upgrades for the drag but it was never any use. If I could have successfully modded it to decent levels I would still be using it now.

Re: St Croix SCV panfish rods

Thank you. I feared that might be the case. Do you have a good recommendation for something around 6ft or just over that will cast up to around 5g with a crisp fast or extra fast action? Fishing with 0.4 braid or 3lb mono.

St Croix SCV panfish rods

Has anyone used this series yet? Wondering how the 6'4" xf light and the 6' f ultra light are. Do they compare to the bass rod fast and Xf actions? Are they more like Japanese ultra light rods than traditional American panfish blanks?
