Re: Sensitive Moving Bait Rods

I have two favs for mainly lighter baits. It's really about the taper, but sensitivity is always a plus.
1. X7 Shading-X for chatterbaits, Rip baits, and cranks
2. NRX 842 MBR for small cranks, and Scrounger heads

Re: Lucky Craft Gerald Swindle G.D.S. Mini DR Crankbait

I know exactly what you mean, I’m the same way with my BDS1 baits. Although it’s not exactly what you are looking for, I don’t think you would be disappointed in the SKT mini. Even though it has a tight action, it works well in all seasons, and deflects cover like magic with the “square” bill. Fat ...

Re: Lucky Craft Gerald Swindle G.D.S. Mini DR Crankbait

I don’t have an answer as to where to purchase, but those are definitely two different baits. The SKT is more of a flat side crank with a tighter action while the GDS has a round body and wide wobble. Really love those SKT mini baits. Thanks for the info. I am after a wider wobble round body bait. ...

Lucky Craft Gerald Swindle G.D.S. Mini DR Crankbait

Does anyone know if these can still be purchased? http://www.luckycraft.com/luckycrafthome/Products/crankbait/X/fatcbgdsminidr.htm I am also hoping that maybe Lucky Craft still makes them, but has changed the name to this instead? https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Lucky_Craft_Skeet_Reese_SKT_Mini_DR_C...

I have a custom made sc3 70mlf

2 factory SCV 70mlf

1 factory scv 70 LF

The 7-0 mlf's have been my go to dropshot, Ned rig, and all round finesse rods. I have not fished a ml xf st, Croix though to compare.

Re: Rod Geeks?

I fish a lot of Ned rig stuff. The St. Croix ML power rod is my favorite. I do have a light action as well, but I only use that for REALLY light heads. 1/20, 1/16 all get thrown on the ML. Lighter than that, maybe the L power rod. My L power rod is usually reserved for a 1/64 oz head and weightless...

Re: How Do You Keep Your Fishing Closet Organized?

I use to have a fishing "closet," that eventually became a fishing room. Then I started doing saltwater as well, and now I have a partial fishing garage as well. I have boxes and boxes of lures in cabinets, racks that are mounted above my desk. Another wall rack with rods that don't have reels on th...

Re: BFS Travel Rods?

Greetings. I just pre-ordered the MB TRIZA F0-63XTZ Aello - supposed to be here end June but we'll see. In the meantime I'm thinking that it might actually be on the lighter end of what I'm looking for. What other travel/multi piece BFS do you guys like? Check out Majorcraft, they had a Go Emotion ...
