Re: Panfish and trout reel pairing

The jdm Luvias is a great reel I have a 2000 sized one. I wasn't truly happy with mine though until I added a hedgehog bearing tune kit. This added an additional 6 bearings and brought the reel up the smoothness and feel I was expecting for a ~$255 JDM spinning reel. That of course added $45 to the...

Re: Daiwa Samurai Braid

I have had 0 problems with the 55 and 70 pound lines. They're amazing. I did try the 15 on a PX68 and got rid of it after 2 trips. The line kept snapping off on me.

Re: Panfish and trout reel pairing

Luvias 1003 is under $250 at digitaka. The shallow spool makes it better than any 1000 size reel they sell here.

It would be interesting to see baits sold with no rings or hooks.



One issue I have is that I wish someone would make UL baits with barbless single hooks.

Re: Major Craft rods coming to USDM?

I had a Major Craft for a while. Great rod for the money. I would love to see them in the states without the expensive shipping prices attached to them!

Re: Koppers changes the game

Re: Jackall Mickey

Right now, with your favorite color and size preference :D

Jackall makes top notch baits. I have caught some fish on the Jr in Bluegill. I have the regular size in chartruese shad but haven't fished it during a good time. I haven't fished the Sr but bigger is sometimes better on that style of bait.

Re: Skipping: Baseline advice

I've successfully skipped with my lightest baitcaster (SPR with 5lb Fluoro and an UL Volkey) all the way to the MH stuff (Curados and Zillions with Dobyns 703). I've also skipped a 6" Hudd with a Lexa 300 and Dobyns 795ML a few times in open water just to see if I could. Generally baits with some so...

Black is generally a night time color. I'm interested to hear in people's experiences with it during the day. I threw a black 6" hard swimbait a bit today but the fish showed no interest in it.
