Re: What have you lost while fishing?

A ton of money :lol:

Let's see, a box of muskie baits, an avid spinning rod with a Ci4 on it, hats, one phone, half of a Revo Toro (brand new and the screws holding the side plate and spool in were completely loose out of the box), Boga grip I left at the launch.

Re: Favorite paddletails?

Big Joshy, Silktreuse and slush are great colors and these flat out catch fish.

Re: St Croix Legend Elite

I have a 7' MF and it's my go to spinning rod. Walleye, trout, small swimbaits for bass, can drop shot but not ideal. Sensitivity is amazing. I can feel a bass lightly hit a senko like it was a brutal attack, a distinct thump.

Re: Advice on light power casting rod....

Go to a cabelas or field and stream and see if they have the Skeete Reese (W&M) Fluke rod. Might be more stiff than you want but it could be close. Disclaimer: I haven't thrown any 2-4 gm baits with it.

Re: Boat shoes

Re: Reel size sample

FWIW I have similar results with the Lews Lite. I can throw 1/8-1/4 baits a mile (swims and blades). I did put ZPI bearings in it as well. That's the only mod.

Re: How well does braided line cast on a baitcaster?

I use 832 on 3 of my BC, 20lb and 30lb test. Zero issues and it handles very well for me. I typically use a fluro leader as well.

Re: Looking for backpack suggestions.

I use an LL Bean school bag that is pretty large and ripstop nylon. I can get 4 3700s in it easy and squeeze a 5th but that becomes a PITA. I bought it years ago but this looks like the current version. Plenty of storage for line spools, scales, extras, etc. https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/116656?fe...

Bearing help

I have a lews reel that is not listed on any of the schematic websites, nor do the schematics give sizing on the bearings. How do I go about determining which sizes I need for me reel? The first 2 to upgrade are my top 2 baitcasters: Lews SpeedSpool Lite:TLL1SH and Tournament Pro: TPG1SH Can I take ...
