Re: Looking for the opposite of suspend dots

Those floating Carolina rig things shaped like bullet weights may be worth a look. I have those! Both in black and white. Probably bought them 15+ years ago. What I like about your idea is that they can easily be cut and trimmed with a razor to the size and shape I would need. I’ll do some tests th...

Re: St Croix Legend Glass

honestly ive not thrown larger cranks on it due to having a few of the 7'4 med hvy models but im sure it would handle it fine. it has the backbone just a lively tip which i like a lot. lets you really bomb some cranks they cast great on that 7'2 model. Outstanding, thank you. I'm pretty geeked. \:D/

Re: St Croix Legend Glass

Re: St Croix Legend Glass

I bought the 6’10” MH and like it so far. I’ve only caught a couple of fish on it. I have a Revo Winch on it but have gotten spoiled to the ALX sized reel for fishing moving style baits. I’m going to order a Lews MB in 5:6.1 and try it out. I’ll change out the handle and the knobs. I’ll also give i...

Re: The most UNDER rated..

Kinda funny. I don't really think their are many under rated rods. The cat usually gets out of the bag. Kistler has always been popular, especially when they switched to NFC proprietary blanks. Funny thing is, I kinda think NFC blanks are over rated. At sale prices, very good, but at full retail, n...

Amen, same here. I've used it for big jig/plastic combos for muskies, and it shines there as well. 8-)

I think there are some JDM models that might fit that bill, might not be listed as a 2000 though.
Yes Sir. Just meant stateside is all.

Re: Small but Mighty, the Deadly Megabass Dark Sleeper

Curious. Question for everyone that fishes the Dark Sleeper. Do you get more fish when fishing the bait more like a jig (as I mostly do), or via straight retrieves, like a swimbait (as Wolbugger does in Florida)? I was only able to fish this bait once or twice before ice over this past year. I was ...

Re: Steez AGS casting rods

Owned the 7'1" MH X-fast. The rod was nice, but I returned it. It wasn't NRX or even close to GLX...honestly my Exprides were more sensitive. Great, great rod, but if you're getting it for bottom bouncing techniques just go with a Loomis or an Expride if you want to save some coin. Appreciate the h...
