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

American Legacy has NRXs for 25% off. And GLXs. But not for long. Just saying.

Re: How many Shimano Antares do you own?

You need "none" as a category up there.

I own one, one of the new DCs. I like it.

Re: 2017 Shimano Soare Ci4+ S408UL-S Ajing rod

Thanks for the heads-up. I picked up a new one on eBay last night, to go on a 5' 2" Nissin ultralight.

Goodbye Gander Mountain

Gander Mountain just announced the bankruptcy liquidation of all its in-store inventory. Don't know what sorts of deals you can get online.

Re: New GLX 782C MBR

I've never fished the original. I bought it for jerk baits, which I have always fished on spinning gear before.

New GLX 782C MBR

My new GLX 782C MBR arrived from American Legacy today. That puppy is light! It feels like a wand.

Of course, it was cold and spitting snow here all day.

Re: First round reel

100DC doesn't seem to be available anymore, which may indicate a new one coming out next year. I can't speak about the new Calcutta's, but I own several old Calcuttas and Conquests, in regular and DC versions. JPangler.com still has 50 Conquest DCs listed on its website, and at a much better price ...

Grabbed a Wal-Mart bargain

Walked into a local Wal-Mart last night and saw that fishing tackle had finally gone on clearance. I picked up a few lures at an OK price and found three Yumbrellas for $7 (regularly $10-something). Then, on the other side of the display, I found four Mann's "Original" A-rigs, regularly $2...

Re: Rod for light (1/64th ounce) jigs

Marabou jigs tied on 1/64th-ounce jig heads. Standard fare for Missouri trout. Not much weight there to load up a rod, so you kind of have to shoot the jig so that line peels easily off the reel. At the end of the cast, your spinning rod should point directly at the spot where your jig will (hopeful...

Re: Rod for light (1/64th ounce) jigs

Thanks for the tip. I just looked at that at Rakuten. Wish I could make sense of the translated comment there. :) Haven't bought a new rod, yet. Too caught up with bass fishing. In the middle of the U.S., we've had two straight weeks of temperatures in the 60s and 70s. April weather. I have bass rea...

Re: New Forum & Consolidation - Classifieds

I'm disappointed that Hot Deals got stuffed inside another folder. I drop by TT several times every day, and the first thing I look for is a new posting on Hot Deals. I like it when that's the first thing that can catch my eye as I look down the forum page. :(

Re: Rod for light (1/64th ounce) jigs

I'm using tied marabou jigs on Trilene XL. I can shoot a single jig maybe 30 or 40 feet with the noodle-curve St. Croix--farther, if there's a wind to my back. I think the rod's moderate action dampens the energy I can transmit into the cast. I like to work the jig with a constant, subtle twitching ...
