Funny Stories...

I rarely fish a Senko anymore but wanted to check out this custom color offered by Monster Tackle/Outdoor Pro Shop , so I tied on a Gamakatsu G-Finesse Worm Light Hook, rigged this 6" version without a weight and just cast it out. As the Senko is sinking, I go into a monologue with Zander describing...

Re: Which is your preferred Large Mouth Bass Finesse Technique

There's nothing better than a jig bite.. oh man, but it stops your heart when they crush the swimbait... you know, that subtle "tick" when you're drop shotting with a super sensitive stick on light line... how about when they explode on that wake bait?... oh oh oh, when they come up through the matt...

Re: Drop shot rod recommendation

Yeah that might fit the bill. Does anyone know how the sensitivity is on the glx 820 dsr? I’m sure it’s good but how does it compare to some jdm rods? Hey... what happened to JDM? :lol: http://tackletour.com/reviewgloomis17dsr820sglx.html ... note, G.Loomis read the review and have since changed th...

Everyone should buy the 2020Met so Daiwa understands we want quality reels, not a Tatula.

Re: Need a rod for a new-2-me reel. Budget increased.

Based on the stated versatility you'd like this new combo to have, I'd say it's a coin flip between the Helium and Reinforcer.

If you intend to fish more horizontal presentations, I'd go Helium. If vertical, the Reinforcer. This based on the tapers of each stick.... Reinforcer is Xtra-Fast.

Braid is more sensitive though, isn't it? I thought that was objectively true, as well :?:
Only if your line isn't slack ... you can still feel that "tick" with fluoro on a slack line :)

Re: Fishing Misconceptions That You Wish Would Die

Eh, this one is 50/50 to me as a given rod will "feel" more balanced the heavier the combo becomes, even if it's still tip-heavy. For an extreme example, a Super Red Demon is still really tip-heavy with a Ryoga 1520, but it feels 10x worse with a Pixy on it :D if you're holding the combo the same w...

Re: Fishing Misconceptions That You Wish Would Die

Fishing at night requires dark noisy baits like big Colorado blade spinner baits that beat the drum. Nonsense. While I know noisy baits will work, there's been many times I've done very well on a pearl Super Fluke or a tube. Live prey doesn't get noisy after dark and the fish find it just fine. Fis...
