Re: Brass and aluminum together

Hard aluminum is still softer than brass. You'd be more likely to damage the aluminum gear. People install brass gears in place of aluminum sometimes for the added smoothness and durability. What about the oxide layer on the aluminum? Provided it isn't in a state of wear, that oxide layer should be...

Re: Militant Feminists Stage Anti-Fishing Rally

That's redundant!

On a serious note, my last weekend was cancelled, and every body of water (and my yard) has been blown-out by a deluge of rain. Otherwise, a lot of the bass are still on beds here.

Re: MB Namazeal

I had no idea there was a topwater catfish game :shock: I actually catch topwater cats on accident every year. Usually, it occurs early in the morning, when I am fishing near creeks, and coves. It seems to be right around what would probably be pre-spawn for the cats. You'll just see cats cruising ...

Admit it - you're just bragging that you get to retire! Meanwhile, schlubs like me have another 25 years of drudgery.

That is designed to be a jigging reel for squid and cuttlefish.

Those pics got me excited, but just a little.

Re: Are single or double buzzbaits better at night

For me, the double-prop buzzbaits tend to track better, rise a little quicker, and can't roll. The drawback is that they have higher wind-resistance, and thus don't cast quite as well. I don't know if they are any better, or any worse at night, but I have used them successfully. The fact that I can ...

Doesn't he? I thought he had sponsorships, and such. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else, then.

Re: Poppers at night

Sounds like other topwater baits are preferred over poppers at night. Johnny A, Could you say a bit more about "depending on the moon phase and windiness" for using poppers at night. Thanks. I'm just a weekend angler (if I'm lucky), so I can't speak for a tournament angler like Johnny A. However, I...

Re: Poppers at night

I have caught a few on Storm Chug Bugs at night. I haven't done a lot of popper fishing at night, but they worked okay. They are also cheap, so I wouldn't have minded losing them vs. a twenty-dollar( or more) popper.

Peacock on that gear must be a lot of fun. I'd love to try it some day. For now I am stuck in the tundra.

Not to sound like a smart-ass, but do you mean "progeny"?

I haven't fished either of those models, but I am still intrigued by this reel as a multitasking workhorse.

Re: pics of the new Conquest

Great link, Can someone help me understand the new breaking system/ spool interface? It does look like they slide from "on" to "off", as dhottle suggests. I don't know if you are asking beyond that, but these brakes swing out as the spool spins. Inside (within the circumference of the brakes), ther...
