Re: Jackall or Robo plastics for drop shot

The Roboworm worm baits float, (after you get the salt off them in a few casts), but I'm not sure if their other plastics float. It's something to consider.

Re: Swimming Senko

the Swim Senko tail provides some vibration to the lure. If that's what you want, then go for it.

Re: Storing and transporting extra casting reel spools

Bass Pro used to make and sell small hard-side cases for spinning reel spools. You could also use them for baitcasting reel spools. I don't know if they still sell them. There were two sizes. I have a few that I don't use....can send a pix to your e-mail if interested. I will sell them to you if you...

TW, Bass Pro, and Cabelas don’t carry them. Would appreciate advice on web stores.

Thanks

The older Cabela's Prodigy reels, baitcasting and spinning. Made by Daiwa.

Got a lot of miles on them.

I don't have any depth perception so rigging rods is always a challenge, even at home. I hope that it makes my l...

Re: Knot question

Get the Daichii Knot Tool 2.0. Holds the line in place and is a snack to use. I use it for all braid strengths from 6lb to 40lb and leaders from 6lb to 45lb. Comes with instructions, showing how to tie a Rizutto finish. Essential to pull hard on the knot until the braid changes colour before you ti...

Re: Dual-Yozuri

I am also interested...I searched under Dual but didn’t find anything....then I found that the word is spelled Duel.
How does it compare with the new PowerPro?

Re: Backlash proof reel

Thanks for the replies,much difference between the Zillion and Tatula? The Tatula SV TW was reviewed by TackleTour and won the Editor's Choice Award. Here's one of the comments: My initial thoughts on the SV TWS reel the second I unboxed it was just how attractive the new baitcaster was. Other CT r...

Re: Bait Monkey is F***ing Me Over!!! HELP ME!

I look at the specs of the 853 and the 893, and they are the same EXCEPT that the 893 is 4 inches longer.

I don't read nearly as much about the 853 as I read many favorable comments about the 893?

Is there some major difference in the way that the two rods fish that I am missing?

Re: Bait Monkey is F***ing Me Over!!! HELP ME!

I don’t have an 893c...but I keep reading great things about it.

What are the applications, and what makes it so great?

I looked at the specs, and it’s over 7 feet long, and that is usually a turnoff for me.

Re: Braid Scissors Question

Picked up this tip from Bass Boat Central. The kids Fiskars scissors at Wally World are only about $2 and work really well. I do have a pair of Boomerangs also, and they work really well also. For trimming ends of a leader knot, they can get as closer than any scissors I've tried. I posted earlier ...

Re: Rod and reel storage in between trips

I use the Cabela’s reel bags to store my reels. Very convenient.

Rods are kept in Stik Jackets.

I may keep some lower end combos together, and put a reel cover over the reel, and a Stik Jacket on the rod.
