Re: 1-3g hard baits

Funny you mentioned those old Yo-Zuri baits with the articulated tails. The Wally Worlds in my region all have Yo-Zuri/Duel dump boxes on the bottom shelf. They're a mixture of salt & fresh water baits. I've been grabbing these when I can find them (selection varies by store, never know what you'll...

Re: 1-3g hard baits

Re: U-40 pros and cons

The cork grips that I've held after this product was applied felt slick and slippery. Maybe it's just me. My opinion...that's a sign of took much Cork Seal being applied. Agreed. One thin coat can't be stressed enough. I put U40 on every single new cork handle rod I get every time. I use a small cr...

Re: U-40 pros and cons

The instructions specifically say ONE THIN COAT ... anything beyond that will drip and sag, then dry as a cloudy blob. I use an old soft bristled makeup brush donated by my wife, it works well. I do mine once a season, usually during the winter downtime when I'm tearing everything down anyhow.

Re: After 10 years in a kayak ...

I've been looking at these for a while now. Where did you purchase it from? Which kayaks do you own, and how much greater is the stability? Send me a message and i'll tell you where I bought it. I have 2 Perceptions. One is a 2010 Pro Angler which was my first kayak. The second is a 2016 Pescador P...

Re: After 10 years in a kayak ...

It looks sweet. Very mcuh so. How does a motor on the side affect placement in the water, I wonder. I have been happy with my Jackson Big Rig, but use it too little as 1) It will only fit me and, 2) It is quite heavy throw around solo. That stable canoe with room for two and low weight seems perfec...

Re: After 10 years in a kayak ...

Good looking boat for sure. Remember Brad bringing these up a while ago. What types of areas are you fishing in this? Big lakes, small lakes, rivers, ponds? How about durability, realize you don’t have any time on the water yet but how do you think it would hold up to rocks and oyster shells? Thank...

After 10 years in a kayak ...

... it was time for a change. I had a blast kayak fishing and have no plans on getting rid of either of my two kayaks, but started looking into these a few months back and got the bug. 14' Meyers Sportspal. Designed for fishing and hunting, it's a very stable platform. The ability to not just be abl...

Re: Fishing in Washington DC

My suggestion would be not to overthink it too much ... I would tend to primarily stay with the baits and techniques that are successful for you now. That being said, the advice you were given by Houndfish is sound, really can't go wrong with baitfish imitators in this region of the country. Perhaps...

Where did they dig up this relic ?

WallyWorld dump box full of Yo-Zuri stuff, the majority of it salt water baits. These are the only two of their kind so I grab 'em. I'm referring to the one on the right in particular as I have not seen that style packaging for Yo-Zuri in quite some time now. That's a blast from the past. Notice the...

Re: Favorite Rattle Traps

I have a lifetime supply of XCalibur One Knockers & rattlers stashed but have had good success on Yo-Zuri’s 3D Vibe series. Very well made baits with acceptable stock hooks but more importantly they get bit.
