Re: Regreasing Daiwa 1003 UL reel....

Open it up and clean everything then relube it. Just adding more grease is not only a cross contamination issue but an overlubing issue. Things can get tight and hard to turn.

Re: Getting out of fishing.

Me personally... Wife and I had our first child in late December and I don't have the time to fish much anymore (never have owned a boat, so doesn't hurt as bad as others with boats) Congrats on the baby, mine will be 2 in October and the time has flown. I'm just now getting the time to get back ou...

Worm gear vs transverse cam oscillation

I've always noticed most of my ultralights and cheaper reels used transverse cam oscillation, while the more pricey ones used worm gears. My daiwa ss700 has worm gear and it was a feature stated on the box, now looking at the steez it has TC oscillation. Shimano seems to go the other way, symetre on...

Re: UL Bassing

Yeah ill have to dig the pic of the carp up, it's on one of my phone sd cards somewhere. Most of my ul learning came from when i lived up in Michigan. The lake i fished was one of the type of lakes the when you set the hook you never really knew what you would pull in. Could be a bass, perch, crappi...

Re: Bfs, Centrifugal or Mag ?

I've taken the no brake system at all approach (vbs isn't installed at all) and have used different viscosity bearing oils to get "cast control"... Works surprisingly well, while an educated thumb is needed i can cast 1/8oz no problem even into a direct headwind and am getting about 25-30 feet with ...

Yep the Aussie, i'm jealous of all the bfs gear you guys get on the other side of the pond... Here people seem to think they need 80 lb braid for everything... Nice vids btw.

Re: Best Baitcasting Reels for both Salt- and Freshwater Fis

"Best" will end up being a buch of opinions so here you go. Shimano is my pic of the litter. They have a rep for taking a beating and the new curado is an impressive reel. Much more refined than the e or g series, its almost daiwa refinement with shimano buttery smoothness, win win. Plus shimano is ...

Re: Casting Help!

When i was getting used to daiwa mag brakes switching from an aerodynamic plug to something more wind resistant i changed the way I cast and go into more of a slow roll cast and loaded the rod less. That way the bait wouldn't start off fast and slow down quickly in the wind and i'd get less spaghett...

Re: UL Bassing

Man all of these updates is giving me the itch to go hit the pond. I too use a st croix UL, mine is the 6' avid with a 500 size sedona. And with 4lb P-line to boot. Lately I've been getting em of a 1/16th oz rooster tail and a 1/16 oz 2 inch pins minnow. The normal catch rate is about 5-8 per hour, ...

Re: Best shallow cranks for fishing over weedbeds?

1-minus series is my favorite for shallow runners. I use em all, tiny, baby, mid and full size and they all work wonderfully.

Re: UL only?

Just wondering, Any of you guys use rods with Tennessee handles? Are they with trying? Back when I started ultralight fishing most of the UL rods i saw had tennessee handles. The original quantum micro glass rods were tennessee style and i felt everything through those. Even a 1/24oz rooster tail h...

Re: <$200 Casting reel. What's urs?

I choose the curado because I do not own any of the other reels and I think that the svs infinty and x ship are great features and really put the curado ahead of the pack. However I have not fished any of the other reels so I could be wrong. Whatever they call the setup in the tatula R makes it com...
