Re: My first "Dropped Shot" fish

Did you find the fish with your eyes or your electronics? You were sight fishing if you used your eyes to see the fish. You were video game fishing if you used your electronics to see the strike. :lol: Maybe we should start a bass lingo thread for the less experienced. Today's word is goodun ! Now w...

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

10 for originality. You have big huevos if you painted your Daiwa to match that ABU rod, and you are willing to show it off on TT. :D Either way, good job! My greatest wish is for me to “be OK” with mixing ABU/Daiwa/Shimano reels and rods - it would make my life easier and my wallet thicker... I ha...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I was thinking the same thing. How thin does that pinion have to be to get the gear ratio up that high? And that thin pinion gear will in theory take 10x the abuse/wear as the main gear And the drive side plate will have to hang very low to accommodate the gears. It does look interesting though. I ...

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: Certate 2500-H JDM

Daiwa needs to take the last step and get rid of the remaining gold on the Certate. The gold on the Certate is the titanium nitride spool lip, which is a good thing. The gold also matches very well with a Megabass Destoryer rod :big grin: That doesn't mean that Daiwa can't use another material for ...

Re: Certate 2500-H JDM

I really like what they did with the new Certate. The blue looks cool in the sun. I had a few rods made for my kids that have a perfect match on the thread. The I-shape knob is a must. I make sure that all of my 2500 size spinners have them. Daiwa needs to take the last step and get rid of the remai...

Re: Foregrip or no foregrip?

Touching the blank does help sensitivity. I fish with all of my fingers in front of the trigger. The standard foregrip nut with no threads exposed is what I use on my custom builds with PULS Palm Forward seats. I have tried various larger and smaller foregrip nuts, but the standard nut is the most c...

Re: Casting Drop Shot Setups, What You Got ??

My casting drop shot setups are for the 15 feet depth or less during the spring. Our clear water and steep canyon reservoirs in SoCal have most of the fish positioned deeper than 15 feet most of the year. I use spinning for the deeper drop shot because it is a lot easier to open your bail on a spinn...

Re: Pond Fishing Setup

99% of all my fishing is from shore now. Im so busy, I just fish my nearby ponds now. I sold both my boats a few yrs back. If I get a wild hair to fish a reservoir now, I just borrow 1 of my dad's 5 boats....seriously, 3 bass boats and 2 electric-only boats. :shock: I've considered selling my boat....

Re: Fun catch

We have been hand-pouring just about everything that you can imagine in SoCal over the decades. Hand-pouring is ingrained in our bass culture. You can tell by all of the crazy baits that have originated in our area over the decades. The tiny clear and heavily pressured puddles that we call reservoi...

Re: Fun catch

Watched bass do backflips many times grabbing dragonflies out of the air. Pretty amazing. Funny, when I told my buddy about it 10 years ago he didn’t believe me, until a pro said the same thing a few years ago. Was a shame there were no dragonfly lures back then. We have been hand-pouring just abou...
