Re: Garlic-Scented Plastics -- Any Good?

Besides power bait I only use 3 other brands Gambler,chompers, and lake fork all of which have garlic(especially chompers) I catch most of my bass on ....I may not catch as many as most but works for me

Duckett Triad

Anyone checked em out ?? Saw a cpl in Cabelas and they feel and look nice. Priced in the $129 range so in between the micro magic and Ghost. I like the reel seat and the guides are upgraded from the Ghost rod.

Re: Floating soft bait for Carolina Rig?

Leader line type doesn't matter much as the plastic your pulling will trail along the bottom behind the weight once you start reeling. That being said the "sinker" is actually the attractor. The bass noses down to investigate what is stirring up the bottom and will take the plastic being d...

Re: What is the best compact crank for ~10ft?

Those little evergreen's hunt like crazy ! Great baits. If you can find an old Mann's 10+ that's absolutely the smallest size crank you will ever find and it will dive 10 ft. Problem is I don't think they make em anymore I've been looking everywhere

Re: BASS lifts 8' for rule

They probably went to 10' so the guys can use fly rods. I don't think your gonna see 10' BASS rods right away I think you'll see them creep up in length,first there will be an 8 1/2 ft flipping stick and cranker then it will creep up from there. But hey who knows

Re: New St Croix Legend Elite

I have the 7'4" Hvy and it think it balances better Than my 894 NRX. Does the NRX edge out the St. Croix in sensitivity ? Maybe a little but not so much that its gonna cost you a fish cause you couldn't detect a most subtle bite or tap. So that being said I use the St Croix for Hvy T-rigs and J...

Re: Steez AGS rod

I have the 7' spinner for drop shots and I really like it. Loads up really nice with a 3/8 oz drop shot rig. The inserts look SIC to me but not sure. It's shiny like the SIC is

Re: What's the best crank for clear water

Shad Rap of course and I also like Flap Slaps they are bullet proof and have great stock hooks on them all you have to do is take em out of the package and fish em !
