I will be traveling back and forth for the next 6 months to this area. I am looking for some good guide recommendations for targetng largemouth bass. I hear the water is still cold so wondering what the best time to plan a trip would be.

Hi Lucas; I have that rod, it is perfect for all the baits that you mention except for the Huddle Shads, these are way too light for this stick. I'm currently using mine for Mattlures, Shellcrackers, Mission Fish to 7", Rago Rats, Triple Trouts to 7" and 3:16 Wake Jrs. and it's perfect. I ...

Hey Guys these rods look really nice, but aren't the actions more in line for Squid Fishing (Egging). I was thinking of getting one for my Sephia as they would match perfectly but i'm unertain on what these are designed for. In any case they lookd really nice and the hard case is something that i ha...

I posted this :?: in the Shimano forum, but didn't get any response, so hopefully I'll have better luck here. I'm planning on buying a complete ZPI handle for my Mg7 from Brooklyn Bill, but what else will I need to install the handle besides the handle itself?? washers, etc?? I've never done this b...
Hi Guys; I'll throw in my .02 cents. Warranty on a freshwater reel is not a big deal to me, maybe it's because in the 30 plus years of fishing i have never had a reel break, malfunction or whatever. Servicing a reel is so easy that i don't even send them to either Daiwa or Shimano. If a part needs r...
We did not use the bearing handle due to the anglers in the southwest (Texas wade fisherman). The cost is higher due to the materials used (Mg and surface treatment procees) and the Magnumlite spool, HEG gearing etc; The MG is "cheaper" due to the current exchange rate and the dealers in ...
Hi Guys, I searched the archives but couldn't find any comments on what i feel is are obvious questions on this new reel. 1- $349.00 for a 5 bearing reel? why the hell did Shimano go with a non-bearing supported handle? If that's the case then shouldn't the price be lower than the JDM version? 2- Wh...

Thanks for the comments guys, the offshore action is insane right now, i'll probably just be admiring my bass gear for awhile. Sorry for the lack of details, here you go: Fished out of Ensenada harbor, went about 50 miles west to an area between the 295 and the 1010 trench found perfect blue water a...
It if looks straight then more than likely the weight inside is off center. Your best bet is to contact Matt directly and tell him the problem, he will more than likely ask you to send him the bait for a replacement.

Thanks for all the feedback guys, i'm leaning towards the MG7 just because the techniques that i plan to use this combo for are better suited for a faster reel. I can't wait to try it, i've been swamped at work and just have not had the time to get to the lake, the action on the ocean is incredible ...
