How do you keep your tackle bag from getting soaked?

I have good foul weather gear, so I don’t mind fishing in the rain. However, I don’t like for my tackle bag to get soaked. I have to worry about rusted hooks. I have a Cabela’s Advanced Angler Large tackle Bag. I know it can put a garbage bag over it, but I had rather have a real solution. I could b...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I have owned an a NRX (and had it break and replaced). These rods are dramatically stronger. With the Spiral X technology, you will have to work hard to break the Conquest. As for the recoil guides, I don’t miss them. They were noisy and it was somewhat difficult to pass a knot through them. I did f...

Sunline Crank FC fluorocarbon

I am considering getting some of the us to use for cranking on a casting reel. I currently use 30 lb. braid with a 9 foot or so leader. I am thinking that this line with a little more stretch would help me. I could use it as my mine line, but generally hate straight fluorocarbon. Also, most of what ...

Tungsten football jigs

I have a lot of jigs and fishing a jig is my favorite way to catch a bass. I just ordered my first 1/2 tungsten football jigs (Evolution jigs). I was shocked at how much smaller the head it compared to lead. Of course, the downside is that tungsten is more expensive. I would love to hear from someon...

Lake Picachos in Mexico

I have been to Angler's Inn in El Salto and it was the one of the most memorable events in my life. I have a chance to go back to Mexico with my son for another trip this year. I can go back to El Salto or the sister lake, Lake Picachos. I was hoping to hear some feedback from someone who has been t...

Livetarget Baitball spinner

Anybody fished these? I am not an Alabama rig guy or even much as spinnerbait guy. I do throw underspins. This new bait looks intriguing. There are a lot of size options though. I was thinking 3/8 medium size would be a good starting point. Any thoughts?

They do not come with a rod sleeve.

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I am a Megabass fan, but the only things I didn’t like about the Orochi xx was the weight (a little on the heavy side) and lack of a hook keeper. They look great and I can see myself trying one again if the new rods improve to become more like a Destroyer which is lighter.

Shimano Aldabaran

I know this reel is billed as a "finesse" reel, but I am wondering if anybody uses it as a general purpose reel. I now use all Chronarch MGL's (have had a Metanium) and I am thinking about getting an Aldabaran to mount onto the new Loomis Conquest 843C rod. It would make for a super light combo. It ...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Would the 842s (or maybe the 843s) be a good Shaky head/mojo rig rod compared to the Jig and Worm Rods from the GLX and NRX lineup?

Steve,

I sounds like your on the water experience is good so far. Do you have any of the Conquest spinning rods?

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I know there are quite a few NRX users (like me) who are enticed by the thought of a rod that is better than the NRX. I bought the Conquest 843c for primarily fishing jigs and worms. The fast action tip is much softer and takes some getting used to coming from the extra fast tips on the NRX. The rod...
