Re: Making Custom Jigs

Check out the Boss heads. I don't believe they have any tungsten, but they have just about any shape that you could want. I don't fish football heads anymore. We don't have much gravel in the West that they are good for. You will lose too many in our bigger jagged rock that dominates in many places ...

Re: Shiver Glide 5.45

It's a bit different than a Super Fluke and other Fluke style baits. It's heavier (as has been said) and wider. It's basically a Skinny Dipper body with a forked tail. It does wider glides than the fluke and is less erratic. It catches better quality than the Fluke because it is bigger, but the Flu...

Re: Fishing Misconceptions That You Wish Would Die

My least favorite misconception is that modern worm hooks will easily rust out of a largemouth's stomach without causing much harm. This is so wrong. They almost always make it hard for the fish to eat. The fish become skinny quickly and they often die. You can easily and quickly go in from the outs...

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...

Well now I’m just going to have to do a comparison of annual rosters. I used my example because the pro had I think 3 rods with his name on them.
Wouldn't be any fun if I just named names now would it? :lol:
My guess is Cody Meyer, but his site doesn't have much on it.

Re: Zona and Lews

Going from Daiwa to Lew’s, I’m thinking a WHOLE lotta cash better be moving! as with Megabass to Enigma ;) I know of a pro this past year that was given an ultimatum to move to Lew's from their current sponsor because he was part of the Strike King team at the time. He is now no longer with Strike ...

Re: Zona and Lews

Whoring out your soul for the $ is the name of the game in the fishing industry. Look at Scott Martin and his new ride. :lol: They love to beat everybody up on bassboatcentral. Scott has a few people hating on him for his move there. :D It's just business. His dad and him would sell paperclips if i...

Re: Zona and Lews

I think most of us people that are hard core fishermen haven't cared for a long time who fishes what. The product pushing part of the fishing business is mind-numbing. It takes a lot of the fun out of fishing shows, like Zona's, when you see them whore out whatever is next. I like to see brands/fish...

Re: what is the best one stop shop crankbait rod?

As has been said, there really isn't one crankbait rod that can fish them all effectively. The Loomis CBR 845 blank is probably "the one" to have if you are a non-boater that can only bring one crankbait rod. It is what I brought when I would fish Pro-Am's as a non-boater many years ago. Today, I ha...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2021

Those videos are starting to really wear on me, a diehard Daiwa fisherman. The Tatula spyder over and over before, and now HYPER, HYPER, HYPER! I will probably run into Brent on Lake Perris (where his part of the videos was shot) later this week. I'm gonna ask him if he is really feeling hyper. :D M...

Re: Have You ever seen stupid fisherman like this???

Those gears sounded great before the side plate implosion. You know that he was taking great care of that reel! :lol: He may have a slight excuse in that this may be brackish water. Was that a Shimano reel? :D
