How much commotion does that BBB toad make? Is it rather subtle like a Zoom toad, or does it move more water (Rage Toad, for example)?
Sorry man I’ll answer this one later today and I’ll post pictures

FINALLY SOMEONE GOT IT RIGHT!!

When it comes to toads I think for most people the Zoom horny toad is the benchmark. Well that has changed and from an unexpected company. The new big bite baits Tour ToaD is pretty much the new standard. In comparison to the horny toad it’s just as long but a bit wider and has lift from the first t...

Re: Which one?

I sent Bronzeback those pictures as I now have several 2020 metaniums of the various USDM and JDM flavors. To put it lightly, the USDM and JDM reels perform very differently. I will try to sum up my experiences here. All USDM model spools are ~10.5mm deep and all JDM spools are ~7mm deep. All USDM ...

Re: 88 Degrees

I'm a Yankee transplanted to the south 8 years ago from MI. The first couple summers were a bit shocking but I'm learning to deal with it now. I'll now gladly take the summer heat to not have to shovel snow and deal with the hard water months. I just got back from central TX last week for a quick w...

Re: Dark Sleeper as dropshot rig weight

What about a Nomase Gill ( weighted of course ) as your weight? Or a nedrig? Neither would mean that you had to have a hard hook set. If you were to beef up the tackle a tiny bit, I would try a tungsten jig but its just a thought.. I know you were looking to use the Dark Sleeper but i haven't used t...

Re: Daiwa guys?

Whats everyone's opinion on the ss sv? What are your intentions? I think that would be the question I'd have to ask you if you were looking to buy one. You WILL need to modify it but most people here modify most reels they own, not all but most. I have one, 7.9:1 gears G1 spool CF handle, upgraded ...

Re: Casting Drop Shot Setups, What You Got ??

I used to have a crucial casting rod with the green blank and a 50e that I really liked.
I loved that rod actually but one day the wife went near it and it was never the same..
I wish Shimano would have kept that blank around

I'm old-school. If I c-rig, its gonna be a Zoom magnum lizard.
The New Grande Bass Salty Dog looks like its going to be interesting.
Its the only lizard with the legs going the opposite way which personally I like

Re: Dream Jig Rod Build

Phenix K2 736 blank How do you like that blank? It's the only one I haven't played with. I've used all the other K2 blanks. The stand out for me is the 764 with 2" off the tip. And to keep on topic..

Skirted buzZ vs. Toad & BuZz Combo

What’s your b/b setup for 3/8-1/2 skirted bb ?
Do you prefer a fast or slow action rod?

What about when using a horny toad on the bb, do you change setups?

Re: Fishing Misconceptions That You Wish Would Die

I’m not sure where this falls in the spectrum but the snell hook being better for Flippin and pitching but if you flip or pitch a jig the hook never moves
Whatever a person’s preference is their preference and if you adapt that preference it doesn’t make it truth.
