Re: Go to jigs for largemouth

Dirty jigs and Kietech take up most of my jig space in my tackle box. Problem is, I don't fish jigs in general a lot. :roll:

Re: No lord, please, not another version of Jack Hammer

I have quite a few of the Jack Hammers. Don't know If I'm up to purchasing any more until I weed though my existing inventory.

Re: Megabass Vision 110 vs Lucky Craft Pointer

I like the vision 110 also, but am surprised no one has mentioned the Jackall Rerange yet. Matt Allen on Tacticle Bassin seems to really like them.

They have in the past, but not recently that I could find. Memorial day is a pretty sure bet.

Re: How to post for sale??

I'm a little short of 2 years and have done a ton of reading. A while back I decided I needed to contribute more. So I have become more active. Still a few post short of the 100 number.

Re: Finesse spinning gear set up

I have several spinning outfits and enjoy them a lot. The stradic 2500 and a medium to ml rod in the 6'10 to 7' range will cover a lot of applications that a spinning rod is a good choice for.

Re: Casting Rods... What will you spend?

I have spent up to $700 on a rod a few times. I buy what I think I need. Not necessarily what I can get by with. Fishing to me is about enjoyment and I get more enjoyment out of top of the line gear. If I don't catch any fish I can't blame my gear!

Re: best all around rod for spinnerbaits, chatter baits and jigs

The MBR GLX 843 is the best spinner bait rod I have used. I have 2, 1 old model that is probably 15 years old and the new "16 version. I primarily fish my older version the most.

Re: Megabass Vision 110 - Best Color?

Wish I had a favoite color. But I have just started Jerk bait fishing and still have a lot to learn before I get to a favorite color stage. I will be throwing HT Ito Wakasagi, Megabass Sexy Shad a lot this season. I have several other colors, but I have to start some where.

Re: best rod for ...

I can skim a 1/2oz or 3/8oz Keitech Model 1 very well on my NRX 853C. 15lb InvizX. You should give the Model 3 Swim Jig /4.8 FAT a try. :whistle: Holy Hell! You might just skip it accidentally. I can put that bait anywhere. ZLN100HL-TWS/TAT721MHRB-G/40# J-Braid The Model 3 is one of my favorite swi...

Re: Sunline Defier Armilo vs Sufix Advance?

I am a fan of the Sunline brand. I didn't even realize it until just recently when I started looking at the lines I primarily ended up with on my reels. For mono use I really like the Armilo for most mono applications where I need a line that floats or is a little stiffer than normal mono. I really ...
