Re: Any disadvantages to O rings?

Do you use the 1/8" CPS when wacky rigging the 5" senkos?

Re: Goodbye Gander Mountain

When these kind of things happen, they usually higher a liquidation firm to handle the sale. Whoever they are using is trying to pick up the dummy dollars first.

Any disadvantages to O rings?

I use o rings all of the time for senkos. One guy told me that he doesn't use them because you tongue hook a lot of the fish. I haven't had this experience. Curious as to whether any of you guys don't like to use o rings and why.

Re: 6.3 for Texas rigs?

Unless you need the additional power, I don't see the point of slower speed reels. I just reel slower for low speed lure applications. I even read an article somewhere about how high speed reels are better for deep cranking as it lets you catch up to the fish better on a strike coming towards you. A...

Re: wacky senko

Mark, want to make sure I am getting what you are saying. Without snell, you wouldn't have hooked those fish at all-not that the snell drives the hook into the lower jaw versus the upper jaw.

Re: New Bass Fishing Techniques

Spybaiting. Hasn't worked for me yet but with the suspended fish in my local lakes, it's gotta work. I also need to give the neko rig more of a chance. Looks too good to not work.

Bent guide on NRX

I just got a NRX 873 shipped to me directly from Shimano and the bottom guide was bent out about 5 or 10 degrees. Should I try to gently bend it back or send the rod back? I don't know how durable/flexible this guides are. Thanks.

Re: Newbie question on bearings

Thanks for all of the good input. I won't replace but will definitely flush and re oil.

Newbie question on bearings

Sorry for how basic this question is but I have never upgraded bearings before and I am thinking of doing so. Question is, how difficult is this to do for the spool bearings? I would be doing this for Cores.

Re: A good day of bass fishing, what does it take?

Confucius said that when a man first starts to fish, he tries to catch as many fish as he can. As he matures, he tries to catch the biggest fish he can. When he fully matures, he fishes for the experience. For me, that is what the last post is about. On a more practical note, what defines a good day...

Sebile Vibrato Hooks

I really like these blades but the hooks suck. Bent out on a 3lb smallie in open water. Have any of you guys replaced the hooks and what type/size have you tried? I mostly fish the 3/4 oz.

Re: 2015 nrx upgrade the hook up tackle

For the guys who have done this before, did you feel that you got a fair retail price that the value was calculated from for your trade ins? Seems like it would be hard to figure out what retail price is for the older rods.

Re: Share your basics for trophy bass fishing.

My tip is fish jigs. Big jigs with substantial trailers and fish them slow and be patient. Not the most fun way to fish but the most consistent for me to catch the larger fish.
