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.

SG Threadfin. I was fishing Rising Sun last Sunday. The water was 47 - 49 degrees and the males were up in 4 to 6 feet range. No females yet but I suspect with the warm weather this week, they will pull up. Wow I grew up on that gem of a lake...now I'm up north jersey, was fishing 42-44F water, HL ...

Re: Jackall Rerange 110

I fished the Jackall Rerange 110 last Sunday and was impressed. I also fished a MB 110 and both baits caught the same number of bass. The Jackall casts very well. It makes a pretty loud click when casting. The tungsten ball inside breaks free from the magnet and travels to the tail causing the clic...
