Re: Which Shimano baitcasting reel do you MOST FREQUENTLY us

I still love my Chronarch SF. It casts and pitches well, and palms so nicely..... awesome for topwater twitchin', walkin', and poppin', and jerkbaits as well. I wish that frame was still available. :cry:

Re: Scent to use on Crappie

There are a few companies that make a line of crappie/panfish scent. Berkley Power Bait makes a liquid attractant in eight oz. bottles. Dr. Juice's Super Juice also has a liquid panfish scent in eight oz. bottles. Nitro has been making Crave Gravy for a few years now, and added a crappie line this y...

Re: Brands of tungsten, is there a difference?

Thnx for the info all. I think I'll give Tru-Tungsten a shot.... The paint looks like it'll hold up well. XPS seems to be the most economical, giving around one extra weight (quantity) when compared to Tru and X-caliber. Up until 3/8 Tru and X are identical in cost and quantity; at that point X-cali...

Re: Baseball Walk up song?

I'm a huge Milwaukee Brewers fan, and I live close to Miller park, so I catch quite a few games a year. Up until we traded him to Toronto, we had a first baseman named Lyle Overbay. He always walked up to something by Pearl Jam, and it always sounded great. "Leash" or "Dissident" would fit the bill.

Re: ice out.... favorites?

One of my all-time Spring ace-baits is a Gambler floating worm rigged weightless. ;) There have been many years where my first bass of the open water season came on this rig.

Brands of tungsten, is there a difference?

Hi all, When tungsten bullet weights really got big, I told myself "no way am I gonna spend this much on weights." But alas, after all of the fantastic feedback, I simply must purchase some before Spring. I have heard that cheaper brands have a tendency to cut your line, any truth to this? Is this f...

Re: Lucky Craft Stacey King jerkbait???

Thanks for the info Snidley. I went for the sure thing and bought a few pointers. I live in the north as well and am really pleased with the local gamefish patterns made by Lucky Craft: walleye, northern pike and the different muskie patterns too. I think the red muskie is absolutely one of the best...

Lucky Craft Stacey King jerkbait???

Hi all, BPS have these for a good price right now during the Spring sale. Just wondering what everyone thinks? How do they fish? What differentiates or makes them similar to a pointer? Any consistant colors? A good ripping bait, or a better deadstick/slow-wobble bait? Worth a shot, or should I save ...

G-man gets DQ'd

Just wondering what everyone's opinion was on Gerald Swindle getting DQ'd from the classic? Agree, disagree, kinda 50/50? I personally agree. I really think he should know better. Just becauce Randy Howell waved him around, doesn't mean he gave him the ok to hoss it on through. His close proximity t...

Re: Chick rods and reels?

I was lookin in the 2006 Rollie and Helen's muskie catalog and they have a round Abu called the Australian Pro, a limited run. It is basically a C4 with a 5.3:1 gear ratio, rather than the original 6.3:1. Models are 5600C4LE and 6500C4LE. It is a traditionally feminine light purple color........... ...

Re: G-loomis frog rod-opinions needed

Thanks for all the input Justin, exactly what I was lookin for, very nice. I'm kinda in the same boat with the Chronarch. I'm thinking it will end up on a spinnerbait rig. Now I just have to buy a new spinnerbait rod :D. But that's for another time, another post.
