CDM Trout Spoons

With my renewed interest in fishing ul for panfish and bass, I decided to look into buying some smaller, lighter trout spoons. Stuff weighing between 1/32oz and under 1/8oz. In the past I went with Diawa Crusaders or Smith Native series spoons which are aces but I decided I didn't want to spend 5 or...

Re: Ultralight Spinning Reel for Wading

If you really mean ultra light and not light tackle.......look into the Tica Cetus SB500 or SB800

Re: TT or TTF ... Which came first for you?

TT came first for me. Way back in the day, there was a monthly publication I used to get called Tackle Tester. I was 16 or so and with the 10.00 subscription they gave you a pretty decent package of California hand pours. It wasn't quite a magazine, it was more like a 20 ish page newsletter that cam...

Re: Uncharted Foreign Waters - what lures?

beetlespins, roostertails, roadrunners, small jig heads with 1.5" plastics......some spoons and rapala minnows. Those will catch anything, anywhere for UL.

Re: Your 3 go to/favorite baits, and three you hate?

Do you guys "hate" these baits because they don;t work for you or you simply have little experience with them? This is the 1st thing that's made sense to me the entire thread lol I mean people hating jigs? That means to me they likely don't know how to fish them because they surely are one of the m...

Re: Tsurinoya XF-50 Budget BFS Reel Teardown & Evaluation

I couldn't tell after a while. But it came out awesome. some findings...... Initial testing- Tsurinoya XF50L and Dragon 6-0 ...

Re: The smallest ultralight spinning reel?

It really depends. I am running 3 CI4 Stradic 1000's and a Soare 1000 but I also have a couple of Sahara 500's. I was going to shell out the coin for the Soare 500 but I stopped short as I rationalized that it likely wouldn't do anything these reels already do in my Florida fishing. I have a place i...

I'm getting ready to do the drag upgrade on my XF50L.
I appreciate the work you put into this Jersey.
Early Peppers are almost ready and you'll have a package in the mail.

Re: Talk me off the ledge please

The XF-50 is a good solid reel and I also have the Dragon rod but in 5' and love the action and feel of it, I think you made a good choice on a budget minded combo. The Dragon rod came today and I also think it was the right call. It feels perfect. I like that it isn't a noodle rod yet is soft enou...
