Re: “Finesse” Jig rod

First of all, neither of those jigs are finesse. Those are compact jigs, a very different animal, a regular jig with a compact profile. A 7/16oz Eakins jig is a finesse jig, lighter hook and thinner skirt, this is a big difference so you don't need a finesse jig rod. For what you want to do I think...

Re: Tackle box for air travel

Keep your reels in your carry on. Do not put it in checked luggage as it is not secure and can easily be stolen... especially in customs.

For baits, just get a hard case luggage and put the 3700 boxes in there.

Re: Sensitive Moving Bait Rods

I think jerkbaits are the trickiest of the bunch. Finding the perfect tip speed for not over or under working various style and depth baits, yet having a blank that will properly load and flex deep enough (not to deep), to keep fish pinned. I believe sensitivity is a little more important here than...

Re: High end frog rod: heavy-ish surface veg

Mostly frog pads, matted milfoil and other matted veg(6-8 out of 10) walk the edges and open patches. So, looking for something Between H-XH not more than 7'6" that is fairly easy to walk with. I can walk with a broomstick but the slack I have to throw can lead to backslashes when bombing casts. Th...

Nice! Can you post more detail pics of the Valkyrie? First time I have seen some up close shots. That is a purty rod.

Re: Megabass rods

I have quite few MB rods and only had one break. It was a new Levante EMTF that broke the first time out. The warranty replacement is fine. I guess this is the version that they had a quality escape on and announced to get it fixed. If a rod does not break very early in its life cycle, then it is us...

Re: Xmas Braillist

A little necromancy on this thread and rod. If you are looking for a 5' weightless senko rod, this should be at the top of the list. It is very reminiscent of my XMG50 7'2" LMB864. That Lami was magic with a 5" weightless senko, and the Braillist is making me smile the same way.

Erie smallie party

I went out with Jared Rhode and my buddy Rick. We braved some less than ideal weather today and were rewarded with some beautiful smallies. Several over 5 lbs today. Rick got his personal best. =D> A grand day!! Thanks for looking. https://i.imgur.com/kaDAyFv.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Ztr3lmM.jpg http...
