Re: Trout spybaits

This interests me, a friend of mine recently asked me to build him a trout sized spin bait. Too bad I didn't know about the Tetra.
But anyway, I am putting the finishing touches on my own 1 5/8" and 2" spybaits.

Re: Looking for Mebaru rods under 7 feet.

You might look into River Runners from Fenwick. These are a bit softer than many of the Major Craft Ajing rods.

Those toothy ones can steal rare baits. ;)

Re: Maxscent Creature Hawg

I've caught fish on the maxx scent baits but they aren't anything special in my opinion.

Re: USDM 500-size reels

I saw at my local tackle show that for 2018 shimano USA is introducing 500 size Nasci and Sarahas I believe. having said that, a 1000 Size Stradic Ci4+ should be light enough for just about any UL size rod no? and you would get the benefits of a 1000 size spool (casts better than a 500 size) I am p...

Re: What new baits will you be tying on this year ?

Last year I discovered blade baits. I had a very good season with Johnson ThinFisher baits in 3/16, 1/14 and 1/2 chasing bass. Late in the season I found these Reef Runner Cicadas and grabbed a few with the intention of using them for UL. I never got a chance to throw them yet but they look promisi...

Re: What new baits will you be tying on this year ?

I'm gonna run a Picasso JR A-rig with some small swimbaits rigged weedless. Watched a guy on the river kill it last year with a weedless A-rig, little hooks but light drag (still strong line) works well. Also been using my version of a "Tiny Ika", take a Hula Grub's tails off and rig the ...

Re: USDM 500-size reels

Can't you put together a GLoomis SJR 720 IMX with a Shimano Soare 500S and keep it under $500? That would be a pretty sweet combo IMO. That would be a nice outfit, the SJR 720 is a hoss. Has a very fast tip and will control larger fish. I fished one for a few years with a Stradic 1000. My all time ...

Re: USDM 500-size reels

I have a couple of Stradic 1000 CI4'sand I love them. You can get a smaller framed Shimano reel with the Sahara 500FE but it weights 6.2oz. The one non Shimano reel that I have used for the better part of the last 20+ years is a Tica Cetus SB500 on my lightest UL combos. I also have an SB800 which h...

Fenwick River Runner

I own about 15 Major Craft rods....I really love them. I've moved a few out recently and need to pick up another spinning rod. I'd love to buy American if I can find something along the lines of what I need before I ante up for another Speedstyle or better rod. I'm looking for a 6-9 to 7-0 L to ml s...
