Re: Sensitive Moving Bait Rods

That’s why I went custom I read reviews (opinions) and tried different brands but at the end of the day my jerkbait rod is an Otterrod custom spiral wrapped that is tried and true for me. Same here.

Re: Your favorite rod taper for Jerkbaits

Fast if using a medium power rod. Mod-fast if using a medium heavy.

Re: Super tough bite! Help

I have had success on schooling smallies using a soft swimbait on a 3/4oz jighead. Count it down and reel it back with a painfully slow retrieve. Also, try a 1oz spoon. Get over top of the school, jig it at the depth they are holding at, and see if they respond to it.

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

I'll also add that if you can't catch them on a 110 or pointer, I don't think switching to another bait will yield the results your looking for. Both are top notch and produce fish all year long at every lake I fish.

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

For the last few years, every time i don't use a vision 110, i ask myself why am i wasting time. All the squadminows, reranges, shadow rap shads, etc are a no match for the vision 110's. I still use em because they're cheaper, but if i could, i'd use the 110's exclusively. The way they slash in the...

Re: Opinions on $250-$350 reel

Look in the classifieds for a SV 103 XS. They are easily in your price range and are great workhorse reels with lots of spool options. I have purchased a couple new in box from the classifieds.

Re: Jackall Rerange 110

I've had a couple months fishing with the Rerange 110 and 130 with great success. The stock trebles need to be changed as they snap off easily. I replaced them with Owner Stinger #6 trebles and even though they are heavier, the action does not seem to be effected.

Re: What have you lost while fishing?

Lost my Boga Grip that I had for 15+ years last season. My wife had a nice pair of Costa 580's fly out of the boat. They were less than a week old. I've also lost countless hats. My uncle put a bag of new tackle on the back deck without me noticing. They lures were scattered across the lake I assume...

Re: Calling all Steez SV TW Experts

Mine does not have the issues you describe. It casts very well. I have a 1012. Have you tried another SV spool in it with the same results?

Re: Rod Balance

I'll take light over heavy and balanced any day. I jig fish with a NRX 894 for example. A lot of people find it tip heavy. It doesn't bother me. It's almost impossible to balance a rod with a reel. The reel sits to far forward.

Re: Suggestion for my TDX

I would have no problem with the TDX. It's a great workhorse reel and would be fine for spinnerbaits and chatterbaits. If anything, put a 4 bearing handle on it, upgrade to Carbontex drag washers, and your good to go.

Re: Reels Over Rated Or Under Rated

Over rated - SS SV Feels like a plastic toy, has a very weak drag, and is over braked
Under rated - SV 103 - Its an og Zillion with lots of spool options. Smooth and powerful. I love them stock.
