Re: Keitch jigs

I have caught more smallies on the 3/8oz FB jig than any other. Its a finesse FB jig with light wire and smallies love it...even in pressured waters. 4in chomped twin tail is my trailer of choice

Re: Best tube jig

No question ...its poor boys fat head. Mimics gobies best with bulbous head in door county. It will out fish any other head and performs great in deep water. May hang up a little more than the rest, but the big bites more than make up for that!

Re: Your preferred fishing style for deep water

Draggin tubes, fball jigs, blades and ripping traps are my most productive deep water presentations - mostly targeting smallies.

Re: Sturgeon Bay SM

Thanks guys. I am heading back up there this week but will have to duke it out in a fishing kayak...hoping for calm conditions as they will be on beds and roaming around post spawn I would imagine. Forgot to mention, all fish came on Jackal Poison Adrena 6'10" M with a Chronarch Ci4 6.4 and sunline ...

Sturgeon Bay SM

Had 1.5 days fishing sturgeon bay during the open weekend. Fishing pressure was high and the conditions were not great - evidenced by down #s on the weigh in and talking to the tourney guys. Managed a 6.1lb SMB, 4.9lb and some big walleye on an underspin and 3.8 fat keitech and jackal tn70. We lost ...

Shimano high end cranker

Trying to decide between a calcutta CQ 100 5.2:1 and an Antares 5.6:1 for med/deep cranking and smaller swim baits up to 2 oz. Wondering if theres anyone out there that have fished both and have a recommendation? I wish I could handle either but local shops no longer stock high end stuff and can onl...

Re: Which Shimano Antares for square bills?

I prefer 6.4:1 for squarebills esp the shallow variety. For the antares, I would go with the 5.6:1 but you may be speed cranking at times when they want it fast. More often than not it should be plenty fast tho

Re: I ain't one to gossip - Jackson Rods!!!

Are these rods powered more closely to US style fishing powers or JDM? I am looking at the Bank Fishing Advantage and am hoping it is on the M side of MH (closer to JDM powered rod). Also, any sensitivity or on the water reviews yet? Sounds like the overall build and components are great - esp for t...

Re: Best blade baits

would love to hear a review of blading-x....hard to find stateside. Not sure if they are superior to the easier to obtain options here. Binskys and silver buddys definitely good options as well

Re: New loomis Rods

Lower powered rods seemed incredibly soft and too parabolic. Local tackle store was sold out of the more powerful rods so can't speak on those, but every rod I picked up felt whippy and not even close to a crisp action.

Re: Shimano Zodias

Just got the 72MH for swim jigs and and heavy fb jigs....hard water just needs to go away now! Anyone found other applications this rod is well suited for? I am guessing lipless and bladed jigs as well.

Re: Jackall Adrena PA1610M

My go to rod last year for 110s, 1/2 oz traps and 3/8 FB jigs. Also a great square bill rod. SO versatile that I wish I had a second. The parabolic bend when hooked up is ideal for fighting the big smallies I like to target
