Re: Favorite fly rod and why??

My bamboo 5wt because I made it myself. It was supposed to be a 4wt Payne 400 taper but ended up throwing a 5wt line better, living and breathing grass!

Re: Just bought a boat!

Sweet!
Trolling motors are surprisingly expensive, whatever you get; make it a 24 volt and run 2 batteries. You'll want the shorter model that is offered(42" for Minn Kota, 45" for Motorguide). A trolling motor is a key piece of equipment, you spend more time using it than you do the big motor.

Re: First Mahi Mahi

beautiful!
I've only fished salt once(honeymoon in Cabo) and we got into some Mahi Mahi(Dorado). They are possibly the perfect fish; brilliantly colored, really aggressive, tasty, and extremely fast growing.

Re: Swim Jig & Jig Trailers?

I use Zoom Fat Albert grubs on my swim jigs, I love fishing bluegill colored swimjigs with brown pumpkin trailers. I've caught many bass and pike on that combination.

Re: Converted a Curado 201E7 to a Curado 201E5

nicely done! I had bought a 200E5 and couldn't get used to winding with my right hand, I sold it and bought a Winch.

Re: Recoil guides

I only have one rod with Recoils(GLX) and Suffix braid only makes significant noise when fighting a fish. Because of that, I love that sound! :D

Re: Aaron Martens

What annoys me more than Shaw's voice is his incessant product name plugging. I just think it's obvious and transparent and I imagine that it's supposed to be, to me that's much worst than his hamming it up. Ike screaming make me change the channel.

Re: need tips on getting 2 peice rod unstuck

I had a steelhead rod stuck really bad over the winter, the only thing that worked was to use a piece of rubber to get a good grip on the tip end(I held the handle on the butt section).
