Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Just got back from six days of fishing Rio Tomo in Colombia, ten day total trip. We lost count of fish 6-12 pounds, my teen count was three 13s, four 14s, one 15, two 16s, a 17 and a 19. So close to that 20... next trip. Here's a16 and the 19.

Re: Ten Dollar Rod Travel Tube

Thanks Guys! In three days it gets the maiden voyage to Colombia, five baitcasting and one spinning rod in flexi sleeves fit comfortably but snug with a wee bit of room for bubblewrap. I think with any tube it all comes down to who does the peeking as they always have the "we checked your stuff...

Re: Megabass Orochi XXX snapped

I'm waiting on a replacement from Japan of a Super Orochi which had the tip snap. The young lady at MB USA was awesome to work with, you shouldn't have a problem. The only bad part was when she told me I could cut the rod once to make it fit a shorter tube. Ouch that hurt, really loved the rod.

Re: Which 2 rods and reels are you guys going to mainly use this season?

Down in South Florida it's all season, fresh, salt so hard to pick just two. Yesterday it was the Antares HG with Yumeya spool on a 7' Kistler He3 LMH and MGXtreme on a Jackson Super Trickster STC-64L. The Met HGs also see a lot of use.

Re: Which 2 rods and reels are you guys going to mainly use this season?

Well there goes my idea for a jig rod... yesterday I was on Plat and I did something that my wife would probably leave me for if she finds out LOL. Hopfully I can get to the mail before she does... :lol: Ha, know the feeling. Last month my wife intercepted the mailman delivering a reel and I walked...

Re: Ten Dollar Rod Travel Tube

Thanks Guys! I'm not very artistic but the voices in my head won't quit until it's done. The first one just has stickers and it looks good, holds up to a 6'8" as we've become used to fishing shorter rods in the Amazon with the heavier lures that throw farther. I had to make the second one to ac...

Ten Dollar Rod Travel Tube

With a few 3" PVC shipping tubes in the attic and not a fan of the expandable plastic travel case after a broken tip, it was off to Home Depot. All it took was a slip end cap and a slip to thread end cap with plug with a piece of Kevlar cord and leader bead so it swivels freely. Two circles cut...

Re: Medium light Helium 3 casting

I have the He3 in LMH Fast, my all around favorite rod. The only ML Kistler I have is the Mag2 Fast, paired with a Revo MGXtreme and 20# braid, should be similar, 1/4 oz is no problem - still playing with 1/8 oz, might have to keep a little spinner around.

Re: Combat Stick

I ordered the 7'1" Medium and the 7'11" Heavy as soon as i saw the ad. Another non fan of the camo, have been googling "how to dye eva". The great thing about Tackle Warehouse, they said "If you don't like it, send it back". The plan is to use the 7'11" with a Tran...
