Re: PowerPro good for saltwater surf use?

Jinz000 is right on. You need 10 lb test per oz. of weight at a minimum. The shock leader needs to wrap around your spool at least 5 times then out the rod guides and back to the reel.In distance casting they call it a crack off when your weight pops the line during a cast. I have had this happen a ...

Re: the color red

Red is the first to black out.Blue is the last.That is why black and blue jigs and craw worms are so effective.It theory, when a crawfish is in his grayish blue state it's shell is soft.That is one reason bass react to this color stimuli so well.It sees this color and from past experience it reacts .
