Re: Fish from around the Globe

I guess gauging from the amount of view's and no replies - this is too foreign a concept for this forum...

Re: All ready for some small stream trouting...

Though my choice of rod has changed, and I’m not fishing spoons at this time I’m still hitting the water. Tons of rain the last week with more coming though I’d hit some post flood streams. Post flooding trout, the Browns were fat and aggressive early this morning. https://i.imgur.com/n0yJ3zY.jpg Mo...

Megabass Great Hunting GHBF48-UL

Anyone have the pleasure of fishing this rod? Guessing it is a couple of years old from research and I did find one in stock online. It is a packable trout rod but hoping the quality flows over from their other lines.

Re: Varivas Super Suspender SSR-610T

Thanks for the comments. Rod is very nice in many ways and I am sure my disappointment will fade over time - I may come to love it. I am mainly frustrated by the Xfast action, which I did not expect, and can easily live with the front heavy part (as the overall rod is so light it is no nuissance wh...

Man I wish you were close enough for me to test this. I’ve been eyeing them for a bit for my 6+g cranks.

Re: Trout spoon recommendations?

I’ve got a ton of spoons from 5-5.5g with different shapes and sizes. Each fills a spot depending on the type of waters I’m fishing.

Re: BFS Calcutta Conquest - casting

Should be fine, I’ve cast 3g with no issues. Worst case is you could always upgrade the spool to a Microcast. It’s a hefty reel that feels awesome in hand.

Re: How much line to put on UL spool?

I shoot for about 30m but I am using Varivas Nylon and targeting small streams. I respool frequently as I beat a lot of brush and rock so I just strip it all and start fresh.

Re: REVO LTX BF8

Really well made reels that are the smallest form factor I’ve handled. Can spool about 50m of 6lb to fill it up I only run about 30m as I changed the line regularly. I did swap in the HH AirBFS bearings in the side plate and spool, as well as changing the bearing behind the spool tension knob. This ...

Re: 7-8 foot bfs rod?

I look forward to receiving the Super Suspender, which is short for your liking and with a high glass content (not ideal for jig fishing?). I do not believe that you should give attention to the lower end casting weight of 0 gram, which is just this one brands way of saying that the rod handles low...
