Re: Lightest backing line

One can always push that knot and bury it into the line wraps. Of course it's a gambling that you will never need to have your line unspooled to that spot. :big grin:

Re: Bubble fishing for trout

I know you said bubble, but one thing I used was a clear spook puppy. There are times that trouts will spit the fly/lure out before I get a hook set. With the spook puppy, it was a much more smoother take. On top of that, the casting distance was better than a standard bubble/bobber. I still use bub...

Re: Trout Lures

Just about any spoons and any inline spinners will get a bite. As far as hard baits goes...Yozuri Pins minnow has always been great. If you find the sinking versions or the suspending versions, they do get more casting distance. Diawa makes some small hard baits as well. SC shiner or whatever curren...

Re: BPS and Cabelas

If fishing for trout or white bass or white perch, I like the XPS inline spinners.

Re: Weight Transfer System Stuck

Not that it is really stuck. Just a good twitch and the ball bearings would come back. Really stuck. I’ve flicked it, tapped it on the table, smacked it against the table :lol: they aren’t moving. Wow, that's unheard of, but plausible. So are these weight and chamber visible? Like they are for sure...

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

Very pleased with my bantam after a few outings as a salmon reel. Super smooth- nothing over 12# yet so the reel test is yet to come. Loaded with 50# pp and throwing an ounce. Much smoother than the chronarch mgl which is very geary although it has has the micro module gearing also. Anyone else hav...

Re: Water Absorption

Re: Let's talk UL crankbaits ...

Can't forget the stuff from Storm. Cheap but works. For whatever the reason I can't remember what the name of the lures.

Re: Hardbaits vs Plastics ...

Hard baits appeal to me far more. I know I'll catch more with soft plastic. That's the fall too.

Re: Lews

I got one of the Tournament Pro with the carbon handle. Reel was great and smooth in first season of use. Second season comes and casting suffered on distance. Operation wise everything seems smooth and silent, performance wise was just showing lack thereof afterwards. Drag clicker was made of cheap...
