Re: Fishing fingers

I just use a net now...I've had enough fish tooth damage on thumbs and hands. Yes, I don't ever jaw grab catfish anymore. The damage to the back of the hand is still damage. I definitely should invest in some lip grabbers.

Re: Winter is coming

I look more forward to winter ice fishing. For one thing, I don't need to deal with people in their boat wakes, nor people with their erratic casting that crosses lines.

The only thing I really have to worry is snowmobile's that are speeding to close.

Re: 1-3g hard baits

Funny you mentioned those old Yo-Zuri baits with the articulated tails. The Wally Worlds in my region all have Yo-Zuri/Duel dump boxes on the bottom shelf. They're a mixture of salt & fresh water baits. I've been grabbing these when I can find them (selection varies by store, never know what you'll...

Re: Baitcaster Braid Weight?

Diawa J-braid 15# braid on the Bantam MGL casts further and with less effort than 20# braid on the Chronarch MGL.
I'm still running 15# Fireline braid on my Metanium MG7.

Most of my lures are 1/4 oz lures...

Re: Round vs Flat braid list

Typically most four carrier braids will flatten out easy. Braids will flatten out due to compression and also pull tension.

Does the fused carrier have memory, like a monofilament or fluorocarbon line?
Line memory yes.

Like mono or flouro...no. Fused superline has very little spring resistance memory. 1/32 oz can easily pull line pretty much straight on the retrieve.

Re: Jbraid grand issues

I have noted that JBraid Grand is softer then J-Braid and easier to separate the braids when pinching a small section and pushing it together.

Re: So... Fireline

The line will ribbon out after some use or it will ribbon out if a lot of pull pressure in applied. Other than that It's very hard to feather thumb the spool with that stuff. I can't tell.
