Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I am in complete shock, I just picked up my Orochi XX Spec R today after work from my local tackle shop and decided to go fishing I have been waiting for months to get it and try it out. When I got my first bite I set the hook and to my complete shock the rod snapped right below the third guide! :s...

Re: Under Spin 101

Tried the VMC HD underspins today in the 3.0 and 5.0 sizes. I think 1/8 and 3/16 oz. Needed the larger VMC to get the effortless casting of the owner in 3.0 size, which are simply weighted heavier. Big difference was the VMC seemed noticeably more weed less than the owners I've been stuck on for yea...

Re: Long spinning rod help for swim baits

I've had my eye on these for a while with similar intentions. Go from mid range to high end. From everything I read and have seen on YouTube, they look like the real deal. http://www.apiajapan.com. Use the google translation if you choose to browse their site.

Re: Megabass Orochi XXX snapped

Back when the xti and xfti rods were a thing, we were never hearing of any breakage. I sure believe in that titanium reinforced blank. Not for sensitivity but durability.[/quote] This has become an interesting and informative thread. X2 on durability of xfti and c40. Even the Themis is durable-I've ...

Re: Under Spin 101

One more thing--while I will now and again get a bite on still water, they shine when there's a little chop on the water.

Re: Under Spin 101

Underspins are and have been for years my go to confidence bait. I fish them year round in central fl. Most FL lakes are shallow and even on them I tend to fish the shallows. I use owner flashy swimmers 3/16 oz primarily and zappu pile driver in 4/0 hook size. Any plastic really will work, but my fa...

Suspect found along banks acting suspiciously Bed 1.jpg Weapon found rod.jpg Red handed Bed 3.jpg I've had more success bank fishing the beds this year. Two things I'm trying. My shorter and visually more acute daughter spots them and tells me where to cast. The no drag set up with the DR 100 just t...

Re: Broken Rod Streaks

Yes; Went though one recently. Had not broken a rod in decades. Then legend elite dock flipping a 4 pounder carelessly. Hemmed and hawed about sending it in for their pay for the guides warranty broken-which is cool anyway given it was my fault. While that one was sent in, broke a legend tournament ...

Re: Best Custom Handle company?

Avail for aluminum. The lightness and look simply can't be touched. I prefer the RCS carbon handles. The new version with the Slp works stamp is beautiful. Yes indeed regarding that new stamped slp handle. Thought it looked a little silly in pictures, but in hand it's really sharp. Really dresses u...

I dig your fishing hole. I could probably spend hours there without caring if I got a bite.

Re: Megabass Vision 110 vs Lucky Craft Pointer

I have to confess. I have some jerk baits, but do not enjoy fishing them and have had limited success. I do need to get better at this technique. If you could only have one jerk bait to fish, which one would it be? Your go-to color would be nice. Just stay with it all day this time of year and it w...
