Re: Best lipless crankbait in da business

Cotton Cordell Super Spot or Red Eye Shad are my favorites.

Re: G. Loomis rods

I have been very fortunate as well with my NRX's. No issues and they have held up well. I think all but 1 were rep samples so I didn't pay anywhere near MSRP. Honestly, I purchased them for the sensitivity and they deliver that. I have a bunch of MB rods that are prettier but not near as sensitive.

Re: 2019 Best Buy

My best buy of 2019 was a Steez CT SV. I liked it so much, I bought another and am getting ready to add a 3rd.

Re: Vision 110 Jr hook upgrade(?)

I landed a 14 lb northern pike on a 110 with 6lb test on a medium light spinning rod. The hooks help up fine. I usually fish 110's on 8LB fluoro with a medium power rod. Make sure you set the drag accordingly. Heavier line with too much tension on the drag will bend those hooks as others have said.

Re: Prescription Sunglasses?

I have Costa 580G with progressive lenses. I went through my eye doctor and it took about 3 weeks to receive from Costa after the order was put in. They are fantastic but very expensive. May I ask what you paid for progressives? And do you get the option of different tints? Thanks. $800.00. You can...

Re: Line Conditioner

I use KVD line conditioner on spinning reels with fluoro and it helps prevent those dreaded loops. I can't imagine it effects sensitivity but who knows. How could you even measure the effects as sensitivity?

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.
