Re: Eliminating Backlash on Strong Casts

The backing is 50 yds. of Sufix braid, topped by 300 yds, of Daiwa Samurai. FWIW, As I look over my original post, I think a better description of the overrun I'm experiencing is "midway" through the cast. Originally I said it occurred in the beginning, and that is not completely accurate. Not sure...

Re: Eliminating Backlash on Strong Casts

new combo I'm breaking in If your braid is digging you’ll feel it and I see no problem tossing 1.5oz on 30lb. I’ve done it many times. But, the rod itself can be contributing. It happens when actual bend prior to release is too moderate. It could be obvious, such as distance casting a jigging stick...

Re: Rats vs Fish Profile

Rather surprised no feedback so I’ll chime. In short, there is no firm answer. But for me, it’s rodent during rain or overcast and fish during sunup or calm. Otherwise take your pick. But I do believe profile matters so I look to mimic best I understand. Many a day fish cruise shallow in sunlight be...

Re: fluorocarbon line shootout

I'd like to see a new shoot-out on FC as well. I wonder if things have changed or that there are new players on the market since the last one though. I’d love to read it but a legit shootout becomes more difficult by the day. It might take a year to complete as is. And even if it could be done more...

I put the lure on the hanger, tighten up any slack, then grab the line mid-way of the guides and wrap it around the blank, letting one guide be the "anchor" that the line holds onto.
^^^ This the trick

Re: Are we destroying our Gear Sets by pulling out snag?

Safety first. Wrapping line around your hand is risky, especially in wind or current. If you know you can break it or bend a point then so be it but otherwise not a good idea. As for using the reel, if you must, just point the tip straight to snag and slowly torque into the pull. You'll know before ...

Re: Interesting Take on Drop Shot Knot

Hope it works with fluoro. Don't see why it wouldn't. Simple dropper loop, OG and reliable. I've used them for years soaking cut bait, even toying around with plastics on protrusion leader and stuff. Never had a problem with this knot, same as others more wraps smaller diameter, less larger diamete...

Re: Lightest backing line

I’ve wondered about this. I tend to agree, but what about when wet? Maybe a coated version perhaps? Hmm… Other thing is tying braid direct, not something many have success with. I’d give it a few yards of grippy mono myself. Braid main, braid backing, whatever. I’ve used braid backing, gave it a sho...

Re: Swimming Unweighted Worms Rod

That's a unique situation you describe. I'd downsize to medium power XF action right around 7ft or so. Your sticks are too heavy to throw that weight. I'm admittedly unfamiliar with them, but XF tip is what you need for lighter wire single points and a medium power should allow reasonable compromise...

Re: Buying Multiple Bait Colors as Backups...???

Man, I’ve got a few baits I have five of. Specific color I’m talking. If it works it works. Partly in case I lose one, which if it works that well I indeed will, but mostly for rigging and weighting and such. I’d say 95% of my baits I do not run stock out the box. That written, I rarely buy more tha...
