Re: Lost fish therapy

I reflect (okay, maybe a quick and hushed curse) on what could've been. Then I cast back out since I assume that fish liked the bait the first time and he/she's near by. I'm an optimist! I've learned we all lose fish and no one really cares when i'm back home. Not that big of a deal to me, it's fami...

Re: How Do You Keep Your Fishing Closet Organized?

Some really great systems in this thread. I keep my rods on a rod rack (that aluminum one I forget the name) and reels on the ones in rotation. Tackle is on either on pegboards or in clear cases. Line is on pegboard with the exception of FC which is in a small drawer. The peg board was really the ga...

Re: Hooks/Split Rings

Gamakatsu Hyper Shield...Hmm, I've been using the 3x Eagle Claw from Walmart (dark grey)- they're 'alright'.

Best place to get the Hyper Shield?

Re: Power Pro Super 8 Slick V2

Here's what I do on my FG knots to keep track of the twists... use my oldest daughter's age (23)-yeah I like a long FG. Seems too many times though, someone is talking to me. I've learned to ignore them. :)

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.

Re: Which braid for heavy jig set up?

I vote for 832. 50# is .34 diameter so that seems the same as 16# Sniper. Hmmm......

YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8 Braided Line- 50# has a diameter of .285 and the 40# is .235mm.

Re: Questions about Legend XTreme Inshore, generally... specifically 7MF and 7MLF

Congrats on the rods! I remember looking at these at a Dicks a few years ago, but ended up getting the Tidemaster. They sure are nice rods but I haven't seen/heard much about them. I had a Legend Tournament Inshore and it was noticeably better than the Tidemaster. I'd imagine the Xtreme is another s...

Re: Shimano Exsence vs Daiwa Certate LT

Between the S112 and S140 which do you recommend for finesse (and weight)? I think I’m giving up on FC for a bit. 😃

Sorry OP to derail your thread.
