Gear tooth shapes

Are the teeth in brass gears cut at the same angle and shape as aluminum gears?

Re: Versus Goliath - Targeting Goliath Grouper in Florida

Man, that is some scary stuff! Those fish are gigantic!

Thanks for the links.

Re: Versus Goliath - Targeting Goliath Grouper in Florida

Mazel Tov! =D> Those fish look like a really big one would have no problem eating a scuba diver! Thanks Mark, really impressive pull on the end of the line. Never knew fighting a Goliath could be so fun... and exhausting, all at the same time. I bet! A 15 lb catfish kicked my butt, and I only fough...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

I wanted to see what a sub-5 oz reel felt like, so I bought an MGXtreme2 for half price, because I'm cheap. That, along with the 13 Fishing Concept Z reel, were my presents to myself. I read that the MGXtreme2 had a weak drag, so I tightened it down and it is fine. I don't know how it would hold up ...

Re: First frog fish of the year

Come on Mark, this is unacceptable. You gotta be throwin' that thing all winter ;) . The Delta rats in your neck of the woods are always braggin' about catching winter frog fish. What they don't tell you is that they are single and on the water every damn day of the year! :lol: I wish that I could ...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

I've had good luck with the Veritas line.
They were on sale, so, naturally, I bought some. :lol:
I use their winch series cranking rods, and frog rods, too.

A black popper has been his standard bait since I can ever remember. Neither of us fish topwater much though, but I have had luck ...

Re: More Parabolic Punch Rod

I also use a Abu Garcia Veritas Winch Crankbait Rod 7'11" XH. It is rated 3/4 oz to 2 1/2 oz, and it is light, and cheap. http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Abu_Garcia_Veritas_Winch_Crankbait_Casting_Rods/descpage-WNCV.html Because it is a crankbait rod, it has a moderate action, so it is easy to p...
