No problem, happy to help. That was all dictated into my phone so please excuse any grammatical nonsense.

Re: Fishing in Washington DC

I will be attending a conference in your fine capital in early October. I hope to find a few hours to fish the Potomac / Tidal basin. Most likely from shore. Being from North Europe, my knowledge on lures/patterns for early fall fishing in DC is quite low. I read that bass are quite aggresive durin...

Re: Megabass Rod Question

I picked up an SRD this past spring as I was looking for a SB rod with the proportions of a “normal” bass rod. The SRD is very much that, but I am honestly not 100% sure that I’m super in love with it. The shorter butt section comes with sharp decrease in casting distance for a rod that long and the...

My 844C conquest is a much heavier duty rod. It's a true H action that i use for skippng jigs and swim jigs in close quarters. The 611" M+ is like a nrx853.
Cool, thanks, it’s sounding more and more like what I am looking for.

Re: New Poison Adrena

ive thrown mini jigs, dark sleeper, and tubes on mine. i'd say 1/4 to 3/8 are what i've used and works great. That’s good to hear, the weight rating on it is pretty much identical to an 844c, so I didn’t really have a good idea of what the rod can do. I have been looking at the Hien as my next rod ...

Re: New Poison Adrena

The 6’11” M+ has a pretty broad weight range, can anyon speak to where the sweet spot is? I have room for a M casting rod and have been eyeing it pretty hard. I have a Steez sv tw that needs a rod.

Re: What’s the name of this knot?

It's very close to a rope knot called the " Alpine Butterfly ", one of my most favorite rope knots. I have tried the fishing version a few times but I am getting really inconsistent results when I test the knots to breaking. Some times it feels like it takes almost no pressure to pop it at the hook....

Anyone get line cuts from pulling out snags? Never fails I get them at the joints of my fingers and they stay there for weeks on end.
Not just from pulling snags, any time I spend a day fishing a reel with braid on it I end up with a few cuts. I just glue them shut now.

Re: Show Your ROD Rack

I have the same KastKing one as poisonokie and love it. It's rock solid and I assembled it three beers in with no issue. I don't know what more I could ask from a rod rack, but I have zero complaints with it.

Re: BFS Training Line

Maybe it just has better knot strength than other lines you've used. That might be it. I use a ton of 12lb Invixz for most of my "MH" fishing and the 10lb Sniper feels almost as strong as it sometimes. The 10lb is the thickest I have tried Sniper in, it really makes me want to try it in thicker dia...

Re: BFS Training Line

The Sniper breaks close to the IGFA ratings based on my decade or so of fishing it, and the articles that I have seen. USDM lines tend to break much higher unless it is rated as an IGFA line. I would have guessed it was stronger then that, it seems very tough when I have to pull out a snag with it.

Re: BFS Training Line

It is a great line in 10# and has turned me on to FC as mainline. I use the 10# on my Steez SV w ZPI NRC001m and it is great (also for BFS). I will have to try thinner FC on my more dedicated BFS reels (Conquest BFS and Alphas ASC, Revo BF etc). Have found some good prices on Invizx and Hi-Seas 100...

Re: BFS Training Line

I wish I had a way to test the strength of 10lb Sniper, it seems a good bit stronger then it’s diameter would indicate.

I know an Ci4 FA spool will work on an FJ reel in the 1000 size.
