Re: Why

I did not come here to insult anyone. My first posts were all about sharing information and I was attacked viciously for it. I never said one word about any member or their equipment. All I did was point out that so called JDM products are no longer truly Japanese products and I stand by that. In f...

Re: Why

Cagey You have come to a tackle enthusiasts forum and insulted most the members. Basically told them that they don't know JDM from cheap Chinese rip offs and tried your best to point out why they are wrong and you are right. Made it clear that in your opinion anyone that colour matches their tackle...

Re: Why

It was joking. Show room floor joking. If that is how you buy rods then more power to you. I only buy rods by how they feel in my hands. I never let someone tell me a rod is this or that and buy it without actually having it in my hands- but there have been exceptions when I could not pass up a good...

Re: Why

I'm not on a mudhole forum and I did not say I was. No need for that. I walked in the front door of the showroom in Oviedo, Florida, and I had a blast! Mudhole is only 20 minutes away from me and I grabbed one of their new catalogs to look at some rod parts I am wanting like the new MicroWave guides...

Re: Why

- JDM gear not being made in the market/country of origin can still qualify as JDM if the design and intention of the product is/was for that market. IF, the manufacturer expands the intended market of the product to include more than let's say, Japan...then it is technically AT THAT TIME, no longe...

Re: Why

Dave when I first joined this site I was simply posting my opinions about certain issues. My opinions seemed to upset the JDM crowd especially when I pointed out that a growing percentage of so called JDM products are actually made in China, Malaysia, Singapore and other places and are technically n...

Re: State Of Florida Pays Bass Fishermen $100 Per Tagged Fis

That's awesome! Hopefully it preserves and even improves the quality of trophy bass. That is the money quote of the day! Florida made its reputation on big bass and lots of them back in the 1920's, 30's, and 40's, but by the 1950's, 60's, and 70's Florida's bass were on the decline largely due to h...

Re: State Of Florida Pays Bass Fishermen $100 Per Tagged Fis

Cagey...careful buddy. With your mad skills bro, you could end up with some $$$ and strong temptation to pick up some "enthusiast level" gear! 8-) Thanks for sharing man. LMAO! Yeah that would be the only way I could afford it! So now I have another reason to go bass fishing! Notice all those orang...

Re: 71 posts in a day????

Welcome back Stalking Coyote! Who? Yeah, Stalking Coyote is back kicking fish and taking names! And now a new member of the "reported" club! The same thing happened to me when I joined up, but I got jumped on by my 13th post, not 101! A number of members here were posting about how they had me all f...

Re: Can anyone identify this bait

As I recall, at the time most of my tackle was all freshwater and if I put my rapala's into the saltwater it might have destroyed them, so I was advised to purchase some saltwater lures that could handle it and that is what I did. It was a quick stop by Bass Pro along I-4 on the way down to Tampa to...

Re: Can anyone identify this bait

I have paid as much as $22.00 for a Yo-Zuri laser something or another minnow lure. The last one I'll pay that much for too. I took it to Tampa and those two sharp front teeth the sea trout have tore up the $22.00 finish on it and this is what is left of it after just one use. Granted, I got my mone...
