Re: Calcutta 100DC Handle

I went with 250DC handles (they also fit Conquests) and love them.

Re: Poppers that "bloop"

You can still get Hula Poppers in a variety of sizes for around $5.00. They definitely "bloop".

Re: Moving to Texas

i lived in and around Dallas for 20 years but there is just something special about the Hill Country around Austin. I'd pick Austin if you can afford it.

Re: Rod for calcutta conquest bfs?

Daiko is no longer making rods. You would need to find a used or old stock one. Yes, it would be a search for a used one but it's hands down the best light BC rod I ever had the pleasure to fish with. I have searched to jupiter and back with no luck finding one of these. Please let me know if you h...

Re: Black topwaters?

When I was a kid, a gr8 fisherman (We'll call him my fishing guru) once offered me any jitterbug in his tackle box...Since they were all black, I chose a black one. :big grin:

Re: USDM 500-size reels

Actually, I have a TwinPower 1000 on my SJR 720 IMX and a Laguna 500 on my SJR 6400 IMX. Where I live, you never know when a decent bass will hit and the SJR rods do give you a bit of backbone for those moments. The 500 sized reel on the 6400 IMX is really a sweetly balanced combo and is wonderful t...

Re: USDM 500-size reels

Can't you put together a GLoomis SJR 720 IMX with a Shimano Soare 500S and keep it under $500? That would be a pretty sweet combo IMO.

Re: DC baitcasting reel?!?

I really like my Calais DC7 if you want a high ratio retrieve but the Conquest DC100 remains my favorite DC for cranks.

I'm surprised no one has brought up the point that there is now another, potentially collectible ORANGE reel on the market that MHOOD needs to add to his arsenal pronto! :lol: My wife tells me I'm too predictable. :big grin: Noticed it...priced it...might very well want it after reading the glowing...
