Re: Buying Multiple Bait Colors as Backups...???

LC discontinued square bills in purple perch. I am thankful I had bought a dozen or so. You can find them here or there but they are harder to find each year. Once you have confidence in a bait you can't buy enough.

Re: Alphas R Question

Negative on the line, it can sit for two weeks and there is no difference. I'm not getting any birds nests per say. The line will become very loose and if not corrected it would lead to a birds nest and problems casting. I am also starting to think there may be a small issue with the brakes. I at a ...

Re: what swim bait head are you using?

Follow up to the jighead question is what baits are you guys finding the most success with? Asking because I am just now starting to throw them and with very little success of late.

Re: Alphas R Question

I'm assuming you are talking about the knot where the line is tied onto the spool? I can try it but I m not so sure that would solve the problem. The last line I spooled on a made sure the knot was cinched tight. Then when I spooled it made sure there was a lot of tension on the line when spooling. ...

Alphas R Question

I have a virtually brand new R and I'm having some issues with it. No matter what line I use it will eventually get very loose on the spool. I have messed with the braking system and it still happens. The reel is pretty much unusable at this point. Any suggestions??

Broken Rod Streaks

Anyone else go through streaks of breaking rods? Seems like it happens in threes within a very short time. First one was one hook set, second was while reeling a 2lb fish in, and the last one was my fault, rod got caught under the cleat/rope retracter on my BCB and I lifted it up. By the time I real...
