Re: Daiwa Zillion 50th Anniversary drag star

The 50th drag star doesn't have a brass center insert like the standard OG Zillion star . The 50th drag star is several grams lighter than the OG Zillion star, and a lighter silver (not gunmetal) color. This is the main reason why Daiwa lists a lighter weight for the 50th versus the OG Zillion. The ...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

The silver knobs give a reel an original look. IMG_0288.JPG Best looking fuego I have seen! =D> I bought the knobs for an OG Zillion that is silvered-out, but I like the way that they look on the Fuego also. I'm trying to give all of my custom reels looks that are original. The Fuego is on a custom...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

The silver knobs give a reel an original look. IMG_0288.JPG What spool is this? I'm gonna say it's the unported Ray's spool. Yes, that is what it is. I wanted something more durable than the ported spool. I don't know why people buy the ported spool when the non-ported spool is less than 1 gram hea...

Re: 10.82# at Clear Lake, CA

Great fish! That is especially big considering that the weights have been down since last summer’s fish kill.

Re: Tatula 100HS Review

Thanks for the review. If the casting is nothing extraordinary, why does Ehrler say it is so amazing? :roll: Hype?

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

DVL 9-30-18 8.15.JPG This is how you make an 8.15 look like a world record. Thanks to Stan, the dock attendant at DVL, for making me feel better about myself :lol: . It was really a slow day otherwise, and the picture helped. Only five fish total. This fish was a retread next to the launch ramp. At...

This dumb move will cost them a lot of money. They will figure it out.

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

that is my father, my hero, and the best fisherman I know. he basically uses senkos and craw imitations on his spinning tackle. constantly reminds the rest of us how easy fishing "can be" if you want it to be :) Very nice. One of my tournament buddy's dad is the same way. He does nothing ...

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

Just got back from some Northern Fall Bassin. Trees starting to change colours. When we started we were fishing 73 degree water. Was 67 when we left a couple days later. The girls are just starting to build their bellies. :) https://images2.imgbox.com/dd/fc/1WjomU95_o.jpg https://images2.imgbox.com...

Re: Sunline Shooter Finesse Question

Line twist is just part of the game with spinning reels. All it takes is a little crosswind or a slightly misaligned lure and you get twist. The Shooter in 7 lb. probably has the least stretch of any fuoro, making it the most sensitive. The harder material will also make twist more noticeable. It wi...

The four Point Blank rods that I have are all built with KR Concept guides. I have my builder static load the ...

Re: Any baits out there that "walks" by itself?

As was said, glide baits will walk on a slow steady retrieve. They come in a lot of different sizes.
