Re: Coronavirus "Covid-19"

Yeah..Let's keep the politics out of it. Go to Politico or Breitbart and express yourself. (although I must say this is a more cognisant conversation than thier comment section) I already think lessor of people now and I only wanted that to be based on their bad opinion pertaining to tackle. I even...

Thanks for breathing some facts into this thread and please know that not all of us Americans are disappointed that Corvid has at least briefly shut down the Trump rallies.

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

I had to do it. Just got my 701MH/HXB-ST. Even though this is my 5th RD it's impressive. Definitely has some added sensitivity compared to the other 7' models and even compared to the 641 SMT although different feeling. It is slightly more clear than the others almost like they turned the bass down...

Re: What do the Japanese covet ?

Berkley powerbait maxscent. All the rage right now. The pro-shops over there advertise when they get new stocks of something hot; kind of like the hook up tackle, etc. do here. It will be like DRT tiny clash one week, obaslive molamola baits the next week, something from Gan craft, and then you’ll s...

Re: "Lew's"

Interesting history lesson; was completely unaware of this connection. You’d think current Lew’s would use it for some benefit in advertising. Luckily no Winn grips on these bad boys :D

Re: Bass Fishing Bycatches

I spent a 3-4 years targeting channel cats. I fish for everything that swims and they’re fun to catch. I’d pre-catch live bait and good sized mud minnows were always the ticket. Super aggressive feeders. I’ll get one all too rarely on a moving bait bass fishing also. Wish I could more regularly targ...

Re: Bass Fishing Bycatches

The bladed jig keeps racking up the bycatches. Now the bowfin became active shallow. One of the bigger males I've hooked into recently. Females are usually pretty beefy, but males I've encountered have usually been smaller. I started experimenting with braided line and bladed jigs despite a buddies ...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

Have these been posted anywhere yet? Curious of the individual specs for the models that will be released An Instagram post today indicated that the F5-70X and F6-69X will be the models with the carbon grip. I’m really digging the looks of those carbon grips. Is there a full list of models anywhere...

Re: Bass Fishing Bycatches

Oh yeah; it’s a staple now. I did not realize how different it is from the other variations of moving baits I throw. At times, it will ignite bites other baits just won’t. Nice little nuance. And the hookup ratio; my word. Should be banned in tx’s ha ha. I really need to start throwing those this y...

Re: Bass Fishing Bycatches

I catch one or two of these most years around this time; sometimes a treble hook faul catch. But, this year, I've caught an absolute rash of these and they're hitting my baits. Maybe it's because I'm one of the last people on the planet to finally jump on the vibrating jig bandwagon. This year I've ...

Re: Olympic Vigore

Why do these rods seem to be priced significantly better (lower) than seeming competitors in the same class of rod materials?

Re: Evergreen Inspirare GT IGTC 611 XMH " Grand Cobra RS

I have the RS version of the rod. I agree with the person above that it would be very good for your intended purpose. I did not know that a longer 7’ version of this rod was coming in 2020. Coincidentally, my only gripe with this rod would be that I wish it were it little longer. If the action and p...
