Re: Trailer for Chatterbait?

Skinny Dippers on Revenge style chatterbaits and D.O.A. makes a great fluke style bait for the regular Z-man style baits.Its a little thinner profile than normal flukes and the tail really quivers.

I agree. Straight tail worms still work great for me as a finesse technique in shallow patchy grass.

Re: Current Favorite T-Rig Worm & Hook ?

I often throw a regular old Zoom Trick Worm in green pumpkin blue or green weenie around grass patches.Rig it on a 3/0 owner riggin hook and a 1/32 or 1/16 tungsten un-pegged.Sinks slow with a nice glide and wobble to it.

Re: Anyone rig like this?

Oh yeah, fish this rig all the time with a super fluke or caffeine shad for trout and reds that are not eating it very good.Seems to hook the short strikes I usually would miss with just a bare or weighted hook. i usually will slide a bobber stop on the hook after the treble is on there and then ins...

Re: Rod for Alphas/Pixy

Pixy in saltwater? What's your maintenance routine? I fish here in southeast Louisiana for red and specks. I've been longing for q pixy reel myself. I would also like to know this. I sold off a Steez after less than a months use because i was nervous about using it in the brackish/salt waters aroun...

Re: Chronarch CI4+

Really pleased I am that this debate?? has settled down. I don't accept that this entire website is purely for enthusiasts, there's a separate section for those maniacs. What it's all about is amicable discussing the gear we love to use and expressing opinions. Turning it into a mudslinging contest...

Re: Toray Superhard Upgrade

Thanks for the info guys.Think I might try to scale down a little in the future after I try the 16lb. May try the 12 or 14 for jerks since it sounds very tough.Then I can put the 16 on my jig stick.

Re: Fav. bladed swim jig?

Revenge for use with paddletail trailers, the Z-man works fine for me with fluke style trailers,never had any problems with hooks or any of that. D.O.A. makes the best fluke trailer I have found.They have excellent durability and are a thinner profile than most.

Re: Daiwa's "New Species"

Yeah its unconvetional I know but I dont cast overhand,usually always somewhat sidearm. If casting overhand theres no way to snap it at the end but to the side it does seem to speed up right before being released. I guess I dont totally rely on the road to load up as much.....this is usually with li...

Re: Daiwa's "New Species"

Yeah the wrister for sure. Just have to get used to that smooth casting motion again. Ive owned a few Daiwas briefly (Zillion,Steez)but didnt own them long enough to get used to them.

Re: Daiwa's "New Species"

Sure do want to try one of the Type R models but I never get along with magnetic braking systems. I played hockey for many years and I cast a lot like I take a slapshot (low to the side) and I use the same rist snap at the end and that doesnt end well with the magnets.Thats the main reason Ive staye...

Re: Toray Superhard Upgrade

Yeah even I think its overkill, Id love to scale down to 12 but the 15lb tatsu I was using this past winter I was retieing every other fish fishing jerkbaits in the rivers for trout.I think its the stained water and the way they hit it having to do with the abrasion plus any piece of wood in the wat...

Re: What is hands down the MOST...

I fish mainly Cumaras along with a 6'10 and 7'1 Cumulus and id have to say the 7'1 just feels rightwhen im using it,Slightly tip heavy but so light it doesnt make a difference.My 6'8 mf cumara is only a little less sensitive but its my favorite rod for all sorts of things.
