What is your prefered reel for jerkbaits

Re: Chatterbait trailer selection

I haven't fished them much yet. But I bought a bunch of the Evergreen jack hammers. The few times I have actually got to fish them i have used a 4.3 Kietech. I have a lot of others to try including the Zako. Skinny dipper, and a couple others.

Re: Best braid for spinning reels?

Vicious No fade is my #1 braid. It lives up to it's name, very thin diameter for poundage. Easy to cast and does not dig in.
Sufix 832 neon lime for my high vis applications.

Re: What have you lost while fishing?

So far I have been lucky and have only lost a couple of hats. Came very close on rods a couple of times dropping the overboard due to arthritis.

But this evening I was going through my reel boxes to check the gear ratio on one of my reels and picked up my Curado D 300 DSV box and it felt heavy? The reel is on my Dobyns swim bait rod, so I opened it up and found a new Curado D...
