Re: Big move in the bass boat world.

When my current boat's motor takes a dump, I'll be forced to decide whether to repower with a new 4 stroke, or buy a used boat with a 4 stroke. I would never be able to afford $75K for a bass boat, and I don't think I'd spend like that even if I could afford it. I’m with you. Just because I can doe...

Re: Quantum Icon PT

I bought three left handed 7:1 Icon's from TW, when they were on sale a little over a year ago. I use them for my punching/flipping setups, and they have held up well so far. Biggest fish so far on one was 5+, but lots of 3s and 4s, so they did get used. They have a brass main gear, which is what in...

Re: Custom Paints

Trying some new things that have turned out pretty well. This was my first shot at 3D scales. Hate how PostImg messes up the picture quality though :roll: . https://i.postimg.cc/2y4gzYM6/631-F5-C73-F8-FC-4707-963-A-2-BB5-A058-E13-B.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/5N5MJ5W3/E906456-E-23-BF-4-E37-867-C-1-C08...

Gulp Alive is a good alternative as well. It makes my fingers "stink", I know that.

It's just crawfish scent. Berkley sells it in a bottle, also.
Thanks.

When braid absorbs water, it floats? :-k
Yeah, it does. Please don't ask me why it does. I like to get my braid wet, so it lays down faster onto the water when it's windy. It still floats, but it is heavier when it's wet.

Re: Limp Braid that doesn't absorb water

Nanofil and Fireline don't absorb water due to their "fused" properties... Nanofil might be worth a shot for what you're looking for. I originally went to light braid on my spinning reels, with a short fluoro leader, to cut down on line twist with a drop shot. Do those fused lines still help with t...

Re: Limp Braid that doesn't absorb water

I used to use beeswax on my floating fly line, years ago, to keep it buoyant. Has anyone tried that on their braid to make it more waterproof? I can't find my beeswax, so I can't try it myself, and I don't want to buy some just to find out it doesn't work (I'm too cheap). ;)

Try tying on a short mono leader.

Re: New Lure

Really nice! How long did it take you from making the master to being able to pour the resin? It was a process, but only took a couple days. Cure times are the only thing you will have to wait for, and the silicone cures pretty quickly. I made a mold around the clay master, and used that mold to ma...

Re: Your favorite obscure reels

The original gold BPS Pro Lite Finesse were nice reels. Similar to an Alpahas. Light, cast well, easy to palm. Other than most of the things that I have used that stood out were for a reason and not something that was under the radar Along the same lines I am impressed with my older gold colored Ca...
