Re: Daiwa reels and Bone rods

The website is bonefishingwolrd.com if you want more info. I am not sponsored or paid in any way and have bought all the rods with my own funds. The 634L has only just been released in Australian stores and only got it a week ago and have taken it with me on one occasion but no fish on it to date. ...

I did this and then woke up a year later with a full beard, a room full of rods and reels, and a lot less money in the bank.

Re: Daiwa reels and Bone rods

Man, I have never heard of those rods before but I am liking what I see. I would love any thoughts/info about that 634L bfs model, I am super interested in that thing. Also, I am a great lover of wordplay but I cannot decide if "Bone Voyage" is *so awful that it's great* or just *actually ...

I had to get to the third picture before I was 100% sure I was not looking at a lure.

Re: Megabass rod for swimjigs and frogs?

I have one one of the big SK squarebills and the 72h does handle it wondefully. I think it will make an excellent spinner/chatterbait rod if I go with more
suitable line.

Re: Megabass rod for swimjigs and frogs?

The 72H Hyuga is not a great dedicated frog rod but it is more than capable of getting the job done and has a ton of power. The reason I love it as a frog rod and why I’m trying to make it work as one is that my hook up to landing ratio has been so good that I don’t even post about it as no one wil...

Re: Megabass rod for swimjigs and frogs?

My pick is the 72H Hyuga. Get one while you can. I am trying to get my Hyuga 72h to work for frogs and spinners/chatters/swimjigs but I can’t fine a line that is thick enough for frogging but also gives enough casting distance for the moving baits. 40lb PP is as low as I want to go for frogs but it...

Very nice!

What single hooks are those? I have never found ones I really like for cranks that small.

Re: Sunline Shooter Finesse Question

I am trying to make myself love 7lb Sniper on my 2500 size spinning reels and it has been tough so far. What really helps is walking the line out and re-spooling it under light tension. I do this every 3-4 trips and it really seems to help. I also use plumbers tape to fill up between 1/2 and 3/4 of ...

Re: Megabass rod for swimjigs and frogs?

I have both a old-model XX Tour Versatile and an FMJ and while they both fish swimjigs quite well, I don't think either of them are close to ideal for frogging. The tip on the TV isnt the best for casting lighter lures and the FMJ, while powerful, does not give me the warm fuzzies for really heavy c...

Re: Need a rod to match my SV105HS...

Hey, that's a good looking SV105HS..... :D What's your price range on a rod? Yes it is! I bought it off of a pretty cool angler :D Price range would be under $250 ideally. The Megabass Black Themis is right at the top of your range. Its rated 1/8-1/2 and is best in the 3/16-3/8 range. Its very much...

Re: What have you lost while fishing?

If the boat capsizes with people strapped in, the occupants would likely drown. Life jackets are designed to keep heads above water, even if a person is unconscious. That is obvious and I feel dumb for not thinking of it. Hitting a submerged log going 3mph in my kayak is all the excitement I can ta...

Re: What have you lost while fishing?

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. :lol: :lol: :lol: But seriously, we hit a wake once back when I was around 12 yrs old and my dad lost ME out of the boat. We were going around 60 mph, so I skipped across the water like a stone. So, I didn't grow up around boats, so maybe this i...
