Re: UL SPINNING REEL ??

I'd say 500. Pflueger one of the few (not counting JDM) still making a truly UL sized reel.

Re: Good Small to Micro Cranks

This one I have says something about a casting transfer system on it, but when you shake it there isn't a sound. I'm gonna go back and grab a few more. Never tried ANY of Yo-Zuri's larger lures either, might go for some of them too. I didn't realize they were associated with Duel lures. Same compan...

Re: Good Small to Micro Cranks

I still have one of the Norman Baby Deep Little N... they are awesome little baits, but need smaller hooks for the fish I am after. Actually, I don't know if I did it or not, but the ones I own have seemingly WAY to big of hooks. They probably came with the big trebles. After Rick Clunn won a tourn...

Re: Good Small to Micro Cranks

For stream trout, I second uljersey's endorsement of Pin's Minnow and the HD trout lures. Oddly (?) enough I've taken several large rainbows and brookies on the Flicker Shad ... they absolutely slammed it. Part of the beauty of ultralight ... you never know what's going to take the bait, but it lit...

Re: Good Small to Micro Cranks

The possibilities are endless, and price has zero to do with how well a particular bait will get bit. Most out of the box will need hooks upgraded, but beyond that just jump in and give all of them a shot. These are a few that are in my current rotation, it constantly changes ... Poppers, Rapala Fat...

Re: Prototype topwater bait

Z Man does make a 2 3/4" tube, but like you mentioned their baits don't play well with others ... they have to be kept isolated or they will wreak havoc on other baits. They are very durable but in this particular application I don't see durability being a major factor. The lightness of it will...

Re: Best Lipless Crankbait

Found two of these at Dick's so I grabbed them ... I need more lipless baits like I need a hole in my head, but these are silent, which I've never thrown before.

Re: Japan style trout spoons

Have any of you tried japan style trout spoons from aliexpress? When I look at the spoons on aliexpress, many of them look like the JP brand ones. I plan on trying some in 2.5-5 g (mostly 3.5) this summer for sea run browns. I guess that spinners, minnows, and jerkbaits are more difficult to copy t...

Re: Prototype topwater bait

Sweet idea! What diameter is the cork core? I get the corks at the hobby/craft store. They're tapered, I even them out by screwing them onto a rotary tool mandrel and turning them at high speed against a small file to get rid of the taper to achieve a uniform cylinder shape down to around 1/4"...

Prototype topwater bait

Been messing around with this starting last season, never really got a chance to throw it but I'll give it some time this year. Cork core wrapped around a small thin wire Aberdeen hook and sealed with epoxy on the ends. The body is a Strike King Bitsy tube with the head trimmed off. I was going for ...

Re: Rod and reel storage in between trips

Fun with PVC 8-) The beauty of PVC is it can be made in infinite configurations. This was an earlier prototype from some years back. Not much on looks but does what I need it to do which is securely hold combos between trips and during the winter down time. https://s14.postimg.org/dss525f81/P8160342...

Re: D.I.Y. No drill anchor trolley installation ...

Very good! Lots of ways to set things up and your DIY adds a few more options. I wanted to mention another truly "no drill" option and that is to simply purchase two Harken Track-mounted pulleys. Place one of them on any existing track up as far forward as you can usually around where you...

D.I.Y. No drill anchor trolley installation ...

Here's a "cut-n-paste" from my original post over on BBC ... Here's a look at my 'no drill' installation of an anchor trolley. For those who may not be familiar with what a trolley does, it basically allows you to orient your kayak in an optimum position regardless of wind / current ... ht...

Odd find @ Dick's Sporting Goods ...

I stopped in to root through the clearance bins and came across these three Japanese Duel baits ... I'm more or less a regular at this store and had never seen any Duel baits although they do carry a very limited number of Yo-Zuri baits. Of course I grabbed them, they were the only three I could fin...
