buzzjet vs wopper plopper

I have both and like them, but I cant figure what are the best conditions to throw one or the other. Which do you like best and under what conditions do you throw them. thanks

Re: Daiwa TD-X 103p, TD-Z?

not sure but I think the Japan model was the same as the tdz minus some bearings.

Re: An ubelievable kick in the teeth

Another story.... It was a while ago but I used to hide my spare cash in my white ployester leisure suit (think John Trvolta). One day when I went to grab some money the suit was gone. My wife gave it to someone. Of course they denied there was money in it and my wife was pissed at me for hiding mon...

millionaire cvz 203la drag star

I usually back off on the drag on all my reels after fishing. Not all the way but just enough to have the line tight with the lure on the hook hanger. this morning when trying to tighten the drag the star wouldnt move one way or the other. Any ideas what would cause this? thanks john

Re: sticky inductor ??

yes 3d...the original t3 1016. I can pull the inductor straight. Was hoping for at least a temporay fix to get me thru the summer till I can send it to the tackle trap this winter. Seems like all my reels are starting to have little problems all of a sudden.thanks again

sticky inductor ??

I have a t3 1016 that I love. The problem is 98% of the time it casts great but the other 2 % it acts like there are no brakes and backlashes within 20 feet. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when it is going to happen. When it happens I bang on the side of the reel and it fixes it till the...

Re: Will you be willing to wear this hat when fishing?

I had a couple and didnt find it very comfortable when you tucked the back inside the hat when you didnt need it. Also it wasnt very wind friendly. Ended buying a Columbia omni wicking 50 spf long sleeve hoody and wear an old comfortable baseball hat. Also have a buff around my neck that I can pull ...

zillion 50th or type r vs steeze A

i have both the 50th and type r zillion and was considering the steeze A. If anyone has used both can you compare them? How light a lure they can cast, how smooth etc. The zillions have more bearings but mostly in the handle which could be added to the steeze. The steeze A has the TW which I like in...

Re: Morning or Evening

used to get up at 4 to goto work so getting up a little early is no problem for me. I usually plan to fish a couple of hours in the dark and head for home around 7or 8. The only problem is the drunks and strange people who park on the ramp. You never really know who will be there and an ocasional co...

Re: My hunk of junk kayak

thanks for the post. I was looking at that model but didnt know if it was to small. My son has an ocean which is nice. You dont get wet and it handles the waves good. I bought my 2 grandsons job lot 12' sot fishing kayaks. They arent to bad either and weigh a little less. Weighing in around 200lbs I...

Re: Basic Rod + Braid > High end rod + fluro

I use braid on all my set ups. Most of my rods run between 150 and 250, nothing really high end. With the braid you can feel everything. After a little use you know the difference between all the cover and structure. Cranking thru matts and weeds is one of my favorite techniques. The braid helps wit...

Re: Broken hook on treble

If your still catching fish I would leave it be. For some reason it seems like the bottom hook on the treble always break off. I have 2 buzzjets, a roumba ,a baby minus one, and 2 kvd 2.5s with the bottom hook broke off. You would be amazed how they go thru heavy weeds. I'm almost tempted to cut tha...
