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

Doing some cranking on the river the other day, and stuck this monster. I was cranking a RC 2.5DD through a creek mouth that meets the river when it got crushed! Always love these giant surprises! Caught on a 7’H Cumara and Stile SS PG. https://i.postimg.cc/Rqr06CY0/CA90_D6_D6-22_D4-4238-8_EF3-25_C4...

Re: best topwater frogs

Jackall Gavacho!! Walks better than any I’ve thrown, almost does a complete 180 turn on each twitch/walk. Walks and spits so good =D>

Re: Fall fishing

Hydrilla is usually just starting to die back during this time of year, so frogs are thrown a lot. Hard jerkbaits and spinnerbaits on edges of flats also work well. Fall is a fun time to fish as the Shad are in a major migration, and pretty much everything in your box will work in the right scenario.

Re: Curado 70 Gears

Thanks for all the info. Damn I have to think very hard, I don't need any more finesse reel since all my 70, alde MG7, scorpion 1000xt and Daiwa Alphas 105 can handle these job easily but I really like the 70 platform. I just hope for deeper spool for 70 body. BTW, why you swap out aluminum gear on...

Re: Hooks-Sealed line tie

I also use a drop of epoxy or gel style super glue to seal up that gap. Works great on my Owner hooks.

Re: Curado 70 Gears

Got my scale out the other day as I was doing a full service and modifications to another one of my Stiles. Here’s a few weights and comparisons of spools. Compared it to a Curado 51e and Aldebaran 51mg spool. Stile spool comes with a bearing on the spool shaft, so I weighed it with and without bear...

Re: Aldebaran 50 HG handle question.

If you are looking for a relatively cheap handle, the factory Metanium XG and Chronarch XG handles are 96mm and much cheaper than aftermarket. Metanium handle is silver and Chronarch is black. Can order complete handle w/knobs or just the handle.

Trophy trout just keep biting. They have been destroying the Flash Minnow 95MR lately.

Stuck this big girl yesterday on a Flash Minnow 95MR. Brass is getting the job done out there. Not sure what’s happens to the picture quality when posted on this forum???

Re: Curado 70 Gears

I still need to weigh the spool one of these days. Seems very light in hand. It’s listed as a saltwater finesse reel and has the finesse VBS brake system, but not sure how low it will go. I bought the first for easy bomb casting 1/2-5/8oz topwaters and twitch baits and with 1 brake on will completel...

Re: Curado 70 Gears

Hi new here, I registered just to ask you some specific questions regarding Stile SS or Engetsu. These two reels have been in my bucket list long time even before I bought 2 bantam MGL. BTW I also have 3 curado 70 and 1 scorpion 70. Can you tell me line capacity of stile SS (150 size) compare to th...

Re: Spool Bearing Question

Does the bearing move on the spool shaft? It should only insert into the frame a certain distance and stop(can only move certain distance towards pinion). If there is room for the whole bearing to move away from the spool pin I would think it would be fine since there is nothing to come in contact w...
