Re: Favorite Hollow Body Frogs

I too use a frog much of the time. Boze Sumo is my choice for the reasons above plus it sits in the water like a real frog.

Re: Frog line

I use 30# Yo-Zuri Hybrid for my frog fishing which I do a lot of. I fish in heavy cover of grass, pads, & bulrushes with stumps mixed in & have not had problems.

Re: Stick length

I use rod lengths from 5 1/2' to 7 1/2' . It just depends on what area of the lake & what pattern I am going to fish. I carry rods in the following lengths every time my boat leaves the ramp. 5 1/2, 6, 6 1/2, 7, & 7 1/2. They vary in line weight & action So I can change as needed.

Re: Scorpion 1000 vs Scorpion 1000 MG

I have both the Scorpion 1001 & the mg 1001. The mg will cast a bit farther but I like the the Scorpion 1001 better.

Sunline Shooter

This week-end I spooled up a couple of my worm rigs with the above line. I have noticed a slight noise when casting. Is this common when using Fluorocarbon? Thanks for your replies.

My Curado's have upgraded bearings & drag systems and are super tuned. You can fined the Curado B series on e-bay. If money...
