Re: Best Dirty Water Chatterbait Trailer

Keitech swing impact fat for me. Course, that's pretty much all I ever use on any swim jig type bait. In really muddy water I'd go with gold flash, chartreuse, or pink.

Re: What is the Tatula SV of rods?

I would look for one of the old LT daiwa rods if you're wanting it to have silver and purple highlights. Also the 7' H action regular bend was and is one the greatest jig rods ever. The newer Daiwa rods are lighter and bit more sensitive but I still reach for my old LT rods and I got both a Tatula ...

Re: What is the Tatula SV of rods?

I picked up a tat sv also and looking for a cheaper rod for it. Im between the original tatula 6'10" m or mh and a hammer rod. I've been reading the hype on those 2 over the past couple years and haven't pulled the trigger on one yet. I wish i could feel a hammer before purchasing it. No one i...

Re: Basic Rod + Braid > High end rod + fluro

If there is no slack in the line and it's ALWAYS tight, of course braid will offer better sensitivity. It has no stretch. Fish braid with any slack in the line or in wind and you won't feel much. So in summary, if you want to fish where you're constantly pulling your bait, use braid. Unfortunately,...

Re: Daiwa Paint Issues

Lol, it's not like that reel is ever going to just crumble in your hands or something. It's cosmetic. If they aren't already, get some duralumin frame screws to prevent galvanic corrosion from the steel to the aluminum and keep it flushed, keep your bearings oiled and gears greased and that reel wil...

Re: Mono Vs Fluoro

San Diego Jam. For everything. For real. If you're breaking off with that knot, you're either cinching it dry or your tackle is too heavy. (9 wraps for 8#, 8 for 10#, 7 for 15#, 6 for 20#) Also, fluoro is way more sensitive for bottom contact and not bad for moving baits if you can't use braid becau...

Re: Daiwa Paint Issues

You should've just lived with it. It's about how it functions, or at least it should be, and that paint is purely cosmetic. Unless you leave it in the box, no reel is gonna stay pristine forever, so who cares? You might well get some enjoyment out of fishing it and not worry about every little inevi...

Re: SV Spool Paranoia

For an SS SV, that Ray's inductor is much lighter and thinner, but the new blocks don't offer as much range of motion. Still, to me it's like a completely different caster. Definitely faster start up, and you can get better distance, but at the expense of having a rowdier spool. I like it better, es...

Re: Braid/Fluro Leader Question

I say just use one or the other. Straight braid (like 40-50#) should be fine for football jigs. Keep it simple.

Just ordered a chartreuse/white Cavitron. Sounds like a winner. Never given buzzbaits much of a shot.
