Re: Who regularly throws small 3/16-1/4 spinnerbaits?

I often do. I love a 1/4oz in shallow water early in the year. I need to grab a couple Super Eruption Jr and Cambios in 1/4 and I'm happy.

Favorite small spinnerbait

I'm not talking a 1/4oz standard frame bait. I'm talking Pond Magic, Mini King, etc. I do a lot of wading in small creeks around Kansas City and even Ozark creeks you can't really float, even in good water. I found the Pond Magic to be good, but the little willow blades seem to foul really easily. I...

Re: Z Man Chatterbait Micro trailer?

I'm curious if something like a 3" Grub may work. It wouldn't offer much in the way of buoyancy. But should give some tail action.

Re: Favorite dock rig on spinning rod

Favorite? Now, let's not get carried away. I often use an RI Little Dipper on an Owner 1/8 Twistlock or a Flick Shake on a weedless 1/16 wacky hook or a soft stick bait weightless T-Rigged...all of these slay at the right time, but honestly, as long as they're biting, I'll take all of the above.

Re: Budget Sweet Spot... Casting Reels

I've been moving towards Daiwa and Lew's. The midgrade reels from both are incredible. I'm shocked the totals are as low as they are from $200-250.

Why not the new Jointed Claw 128?
5 inches, 3/4 oz

Any updates on these? They look great.

Re: Are we destroying our Gear Sets by pulling out snag?

Sometimes I have discovered it is easier to break off than to risk damage to a $200 reel.

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

Caught this pig on a Chatterbait Elite on my SBR752 and an old TDS with 12lb Hi Seas copoly. Combo worked well together. I found a lighter reel to slap on it, a 7.1 Lew's, which makes it easier to tote around when I'm wading or floating creeks.

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

Really...Apparently you didn't do your homework before you responded. The Lamiglass reference was way back when Dobyn's first started making rods. I see an agenda, but that's neither here nor there. My Loomis SBR752 is the most nicely appointed rod I own. It is perfect for creeking or fishing small...

Re: Crankbait reel

Honestly, I toss cranks on a 6.x ratio. I find the lower ratios too slow for how and where I fish. I simply don't crank deeper than 8 feet here.

Re: Favorite Chatterbait

The availability is really bad, but I am well prepared for this season... :lol: IMG_20181021_155005_9-01-03.jpeg I assume you got those from overseas. I just unloaded my Deraballs as I don't think I'd toss them much. As a guy who fishes some smaller creeks, those Dera Breaks interest me quite a bit.

Re: Looking for first kayak. FeelFree Lure 10 any good?

I'd go for it. Feel Free makes a really nice boat for a great price. Grab it and fish the heck out of it.

I love the tiny Dera Break of Jackall (and the 2.4" Dark Sleeper...).

Those Dera Break are awesome looking. May need to use my sources and hunt some down.
