Re: Curado 100D won't crank

Along with this the worm gear forces its way out of place and moves to the right (handle) side when I have the line guide go through about 2 passes, which in turn causes the smaller plastic gear to pop out of place If you are talking about the idle gear that's connected to the end of the wormshaft,...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

A nice 7 lb. Speckled Trout from the bayou yesterday as the sun broke. I was using my Otterods Custom NFC Mag Bass 663 HM with a Metanium DC throwing a Black and Chartreuse Skitterwalk. She inhaled it!

Here's what I use. https://www.glad.com/food-storage/conta ... mily-size/

They are cheap and there are many different sizes available. You can find them at the grocery store, or if you're lucky, in your own pantry. :D

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Some nice Reds from the last 30 days. Themis and Alde were the weapons of choice.

Re: Aldebaran, Metanium or Core?
