Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Nicest pike so far for me. Also I tested my brand new Abu C3 and this was the first fish on it.

Re: Budget Sweet Spot... Casting Reels

I like to keep it under 200 USD, but my most expensive reel is a Calcutta Conquest. Even though I enjoy high end reels, my favorite one is an Abu C3 4601 :lol:

Re: Any Carp guys here?

Carp is the most popular fish in my country for both eating and fishing. On the eating side, we have a fish soup in Hungary which is like a national food here and considered famous, the main fish is the carp in it. You can make a very good dish out of carp, but for most people, it will be strange. I...

Re: Megabass Gatta-X versus Jackall Pompadour

There are two versions, the "Turbulence" with the prop and the Parahatch with twin willow blades. Actually there is a third version called Buggy. It does not have any of those attachments, just the plain body with the lip. I have one, but do not really like it. The hooks hang up a lot dur...

Re: Spy baits who's using them, and what brands?

I have the Megabass X-Plose Junior and the Original Duo. They are completely different baits. The Megabass is coming under the surface in a straight line, yet it worked great for clear water pressured bass. The Duo I used very little, so others might know more about.

Re: BASS lifts 8' for rule

The 8 foot rod rule was created because of Dee Thomas. He was the master at dippin with a long rod. Exactly, he was the master at it. Makes me think about when dunking was banned (Lew Alcindor Rule) in basketball because of Kareem Abdul-Jabar's dominance, why punish someone for being good at someth...

Re: What's the number one selling rod?

Not 100% sure I understand what you are asking? Do you want to know what company sells the most rods with their name on it? (IE Loomis, Dobyns, etc) Do you want to know what rod line that a specific company sells the most of? (IE Dobyns Champion) Do you want to know what rod model within a specific...

Re: 2 piece casting rod for bank fishing

Did you find your rod yet? I bought this rod recently with exactly the same spec as you said: http://tailwalk.jp/english/bass/fullrangecc/ The Bank Versatile is a good rod. This is my most expensive rod so far so I cannot really compare it to others in similar price range, but I like it anyway. It ...

Re: ICAST 2016?

There was a new big Okuma casting reel already shown. Also Abu Garcia seems to update their Revo lineup as I see too many sales on the current model. Other than that I do not know anything, but I'm sure there will be plenty of new reels released.

Re: 2 piece casting rod

I also prefer 2 piece rods. I have the MH version of this on order:

I handled a few of their one piece rods in person, they are impressive. I have high hopes for these, but had not arrived yet, unfortunately.

Do you use braid when it is that thick or just go mono? For smaller lures it would be strange to use 0.35mm braid, it is very strong.

Re: Reel for 1/2-2oz lures

Thanks Guys! I will get a 200 size reel, probably the 201D. I live in EU/Denmark, where I use the Calcutta 201D for pike fishing. It can easily handle 1/2-2 oz lures and will serve you well. The 300 and 400 size reel has also been for sale in EU/DK but for 1 oz lures you will not need them. As othe...
