Re: Spinning Reel Spool Size

The concept in simplicity would mean that smaller spool = smaller coil/cone of line coming from the spool lip going into the first stripper guide. However with line being propelled at a high speed during the cast, there's the consideration of that line being deflected from the spool arbor to the spo...

Re: Rapala X Rap

I bought a bunch of the Xrap size 4 when they first came out cuz the bigger sized ones were killing the white bass and smallmouth bass. Tried them several times for trout fishing but can't get a bite on them. Old style Rebel tracdown/floating/suspending minnow and Yozuri pins minnow do so much bette...

Berkley Fireline Ultra 8 carrier

New Fireline fiddling fee foo fum... I ran my typical tie my fishing knot, the one I am going to fish with. I am impressed with the strength. This line is gonna be awesome for ice fishing.

Re: Ice fishing lines?

If you ever fish when the air temp is about 32 F degrees or right there at 0 C degrees, any fine droplets of water will freeze in the air. While casting and retrieving your line guides, especially the tip guide will ice up. Ice fishing lines, or even cold weather lines have an advantage over regular...

Re: Favorite UL line

I have lots of favorite or not...I test my line based on the knot I tie with for my fishing purpose. This tells me, what I should expect in application. Some lines hold up and breaks before my knot fails, others are broken right at the base of the knot = knot break. Berkley Fireline Crystal .06 mm 1...

Re: Lucky Craft Gunfish 95

It feels a little light for it's size. Casts well, but I feel like it's not getting enough distance.

Re: Whatever happened to firetiger?

It is the unusual color pattern that produces. I agree that it is not the first thing to catch my eye in the store, but always one of the color pattern I fish with.

Re: Complete Rapala colour spectrum

This is crazy a lot and they do change patterns as time goes by. Some of the best IMO were the old rainbow trout pattern and chrome pattern on their original floating raps.

Re: Best finesse popper?

Sugio mini splash, one of the best. If I only knew then...casts very well for it's size. On the cheap side, Rebel hopper popper and the Teeny Pop-R . These have always produce. Owner Gobo Popper. smaller cup, sits lower on water. Even panfish hits this lure. The smallest Hula popper...big mouth cup,...

Re: Best stealthy braid for clear water?

braid stealth is about camouflaging it against the background. That's why it's green for green vegetation. Pick brown for muddy waters. If nothing else, get that white/ghost line and a red sharpie...color it red for bloody trail.
