Re: 13 Fishing Concept Z

I'm very interested to see how they turn out. I am at times skeptical of new tech, but starting to come around to new innovations. The only 13 fishing reels I have been around are the Concept C (friend owned on a deep crank rod) and it would absolutely dump the spool with a 6XD. I am hesitant to pu...

Re: Quantum's Surprising New Smoke Series Three (S3)

Cal, I bought six of the original Smoke Burner 7/1 reels when they went on sale for half price. They have been real workhorses and relatively bullet proof, as long as I lube the aluminum gears. Do you find this new Smoke S3 to be a big improvement over the Burner? I replaced one of the Burners with ...

Re: Abu Garcia revo

I was trying to add a pic but it's not working. The part that im talking about is the circular part behind the handle that has all the holes in it. I would suggest you go online to the Abu Garcia website, and use the phone number there to contact someone who can answer your question. They are very ...

Re: Best rod for Whopper Plopper (sizes 110 and 130)

I use a Smoke frog rod, 7'4", for both size whopper ploppers. It loads really well on the cast, and doesn't work me too hard on the retrieve. My biggest on that setup is 7 lbs., and it handled that fish just fine.

Re: crappie magnet for trout

The dock shooting I have seen has been primarily small stuff. I don't see why someone with a light powered rod, a nice parabolic bend, couldn't step it up a bit and shoot something back a bit heavier. A lot of what works depends on the shape and characteristics of the lure/plastic. Lots of big bait...

Congrats!
An old Finnish carpenter, Inar, told me that the Finns catch the sardines that the Norwegians sell.
Is that true? Hahaha

Re: Spinnerbait guys: different blade configurations

Throw a Colorado / Indiana blade combo a lot in rivers or a single Indiana blade spinnerbait. Everyone throws a willow/willow around here or a colorado /willow. So the combinations I throw don't get seen very often. I use the same blade combination, and I add glo paint to the cupped side of the bla...

Re: Curado 70XG drag & spool tension coming loose

Hello, I have a Curado 70XG and notice that if the drag is not locked down, it tends to work it's way loose on its own really quickly. I'm also having the same issue with the spool tension knob, it gets very loose on own quite frequently. Any input is greatly appreciate. I had a reel with a loose t...

Can it be done with heavier line and baits, like bass jigs?

Re: crappie magnet for trout

I had forgotten it was called dock shooting! A great description of how it is done. Thank you. It sounds like you have to hold the bait with the same care you do when you're pitching a crankbait into tight cover, or risk hooking a real large mouth. Mark, dock shooting is a hoot. It takes a few trie...

Re: crappie magnet for trout

I have pitched the little .7 gram jig head quite a lot. It works well with some decent distance on light tackle. Regarding dock shooting, you need a rod that loads up well, then usually a plastic bait where you have something to grip and release away from the hook itself. Some artificials "sho...
