Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Made it to Lake Bacarrac with four friends Robert Perez, Noah Arroyo & Justin Bell as part of Wayne Campbell's Swimbait Universe group. 21 guys in the group so we had a full house at the lodge for 5 days of fishing & fun. The trip offered an incentive to the guy who caught the biggest bass with a f...

Re: What are you cranking with?

I use a curado 200i PG in 5:1 with 17lb Suffix Advantage
I use a Bantam PG in 5:1 with 14lb Suffix Advantage
I use a calais 6:1 with 20lb Tatsu.

Bantam is the smoothest of the three.

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...

So what happened to this line, the listings disappeared from tackle warehouse?
According to Tackle warehouse the manufacturer discontinued the line. Buddy had it on backorder & they email him that reply.

Re: Double duty for muskie fishing - Expride 73XH?

Take a look at the Kistler Helium 3 MOD 7'10" 3/8 to 3 oz. It's on sale for $219.95 and covers all the bases you are looking for. I have bought two of them & they are the real deal for what your trying to accomplish. I believe it's available in a 7'6" also.

Re: Bantam MGL

I have two PG, two XG & two HG. Four brakes on & adjust the dial from 2.5 plus or minus works for me. I pair then up with mostly Z bones & Helium 3 and a couple of customs. I sold all my mets for Bantam money.

Based on my experience with 5 certates your reel will stay butter smooth.

Re: Your favorite rod taper for Jerkbaits

I like a medium heavy moderate action high modulus rod for use with braid & a leader. I have an Otterrods built on a St Croix 7'2" legend extreme blank The better quality rods are more crisp handling when working the bait. When I'm using straight fluoro I like a medium heavy X fast LEXF-3MH-70 Z bon...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Every once in a while I run into these wrecking balls by accident. Fishing up in 2-3’ of water throwing a jerkbait for trout and saw some small bait start skipping, so I cast a Flash Minnow right into the middle of them. Two twitches and the drag started screaming! Before I could even get to the re...
