If it's dirty or I'm using a 3/8 and up flipping jig I sometimes use the bigger critter craws but usually it's a brown finesse jig and a gree...

Re: who makes the best lube and grease?

Have you guys ever tried products made for rc cars? RPM makes a tool called the bearing blaster for cleaning bearings. Their are also several different lubes such as acer.

Re: Bored - custom stick, certate 2004 & cool bait picts

What kind of finish is on that reel seat? I like it but was wondering about it's scratch resistance. Not that I would beat up a rod like that. :D

Re: Fun day at Stockton Lake

Fun day at Stockton Lake

15 total. Mostly shorts but had alot of fun trying out my new fuego's. Caught this nice one that I'm guessing 6.5-7lbs. All were caught on my home made finesse jig in 6-10' deep.
