Re: Favorite finesse jig trailers

For very small jigs, a Cross Tail Shad makes an interesting trailer. I did it the first time out of desperation, but it has a nice wiggle when hopped and moves in almost any current.

Re: SV103H with upgrades

Amazing looking.

How are you liking the PG spool in your sv103? I am still hunting up the perfect spool(s) for mine and I am really eager to try one, but I waffled too long and now they are out of stock.

Re: Floating S-Waver?

A word to the wise. Use a net to get the bird in the boat, and turn it upside down, so the bird is pinned to the deck. Then you can use a towel to cover the bird, which will calm it, and let you get to the bait or cut your line loose from the bird, without damage to it or you. That was more or less...

Man, that grip/reel seat does look huge when you see it in hand. I have two MagL/XF IMX rods and am really learning to like the taper. I have one in 5'2" and one at 6'. I would love a longer one but am not a fan of any of the Loomis spinning rod seats I have held. I would buy a custom on that b...

Re: Need help ( Bottom contact rod)

I bought an FMJ this spring and so far it has been in my hands maybe half the time I get out fishing, I just can't put it down. Almost every time I go to try a new presentation/lure and am thinking "ok, this is asking too much" the rod surprises me with how versatile it is. If all my gear ...

Re: Favorite dock rig on spinning rod

A guy on another forum turned me onto the wonder that is a Zman Hula Stick on a 1/8oz Slider head. You have to glue the plastic on, but it skips like a dream and gives really good hooksets.

Re: Bass/FLW/MLF

How does one watch MLF these days without a cable package? Last I looked they wanted you to pay for access via some website but it seemed like there was no simple way to stream it directy to my tv. I think the format is far more interesting then the normal “best 5 bass” but they make it harder to wa...

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Yea, that guy is a tool of the highest order.

In any case, I am finding basicly no info online about the new Leviathan. I feel like it must be decently more powerful then my Huyga, but all I have to compare that rod to is a pair of MB 6-powers.

I don't know what I just watched, but I think the "Published on Sep 27, 2017" would mean it's the old model rod, right?

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Anyone have experience with the new Leviathan? I want to dedicate this winter to throwing a 68 Special and I want a rod a more powerful than the Hyuga 72H that I throw them on now. I am also looking at the various Dobyn's rods and while there is a ton of info on them there is almost nothing I can fi...

Re: Swimming Unweighted Worms Rod

I cast a weightless trickworm ~.25oz, on a 783 or 723 GLX with pretty good distance for shorter rods. I do use more finesse orientated reels and/or spools though.

Re: Taper Characteristics of Different Rod Brands?

I haven't used those rods, but you may want to look into iRods. I've fished quite a few of the Genesis II series rods and most of them are built on a thicker, thin walled blank. The moderate action ones really fit my style of fishing. Quick blanks and more bend equals less lost fish for my style of...

Re: Anybody target the Green Trout ?

There is a little river I like to wade that is full of big Redbrested sunfish and small smallmouths. I usually just fish a Ned the entire time but a few times a year I bring a UL along instead and throw tiny cranks and worms. I really like little 3" trout worms wacky rigged on like a #6 or #4 c...
