Title: Bait Monkey -- You're Fired (Confessional)!!
Post by: caddyjoe77 on March 31, 2017, 01:21:36 AM
 lo

So, the Bait Monkey got me again.  Picked up a Shimano aldebaren JDM MG NIB this evening.  Why, oh why does the bait monkey do that?   lo.  Maybe a few  ~beer~ (s) were consumed, making the bait monkey that much more influential!!

With that, of course I needed a rod to go with it because you cannot just pick up a sweet reel and not have a sweet rod, right?   ~roflmao.  I will leave you all in suspense, so take your guesses.  But, I will say that it is aimed at spinnerbaits.

You can't stop the monkey with alcohol.
I will be watching to see what you pair that superior reel with.

Well, the aldebaren finally came in Saturday.  Fished it with the new rod--a Loomis SB813.

Wow, thats all I can say.  The combo is so light and extremely accurate.  Caught a few dinks, and one barely keeper,  so the fish handling abilities have yet to be tested but I am sure that it will fare well. 

I really like the length for those close is pitches. 

So, now I have 2 rods/reels specifically aimed at spinnerbaits and chatterbaits -- the 736 with the HLC -- which is just a beast when it comes to hauling in bigger fish and the SB813/Aldy JDM.  Also, there are 2 speeds -- HLC is 6.3 and aldy which is 5.8.

Buyee.co.jp. A site that allows international people to buy from different Japanese auction sites, I been buying from Yahoo auctions. Every now and then you can find some amazing deals. I got a Megabass IS71 in excellent shape, with box and papers, for $60 once.

Nah...well...the only mod its getting is an Avail50RR honeycomb spool for tossing light baits. Its gonna take the place of my Aldebaran on the Defy rod for UL duty. Im gonna keep the honeycomb spool in the Aldebaran that I bought a bit back and fill it with 20lb Senshi to go back to regular duty on the MH Crucial rod.

The spool is the same as the TD Zillions. So your options there are limited to that. But, the gold PE spool is an amazing mod for that reel. It can cast and pitch very well. Or, if you find a 100M spool.

I have to say that so far, out of the latest binge the SV103 remains a favorite -- like a reliable friend.  I am using the H for skipping on a LSCR built for that very thing.....amazing. 

But, - I have not picked a favorite out of those 4 yet. --> Diawa Ito, SV103H, Shimano Excense DC, and Shimano Anteras

The exsence is just in a whole different class.  it'll skip, it'll most definitely chuck them, and has some nice spool control features.  I was only home for one day before getting back on a plane today....but I am really happy with all 3 I purchased. 

Trying out the anteras next time I am home.  Hopefully the Ito shows up by then.....

The size and power of the reels. They were just the perfect reel in my eyes, and apparently everyone else's too. I don't think there has been a more popular Shimano out there. They tried to bring it back with the 70, but you can see most people are selling them off not long after owning them. The 50E platform had to be most solid built, ergonomic friendly reel out there. And the fact that you can't find them, and if you do you are gonna pay a pretty penny for them.

His obsession with the 50e is like mine with the Core 100 series. Shimano just did something right with those reels.

If memory serves me correct, the Curado 50e was the first in the E series 50's.


The 50e was so popular that they made the Chronarch 50e identical except for the color. I don't know if a company has had so many spin offs as Shimano has with the E series 50's.

That is correct, the CU50E was first. Then JDM Shimano brought the 09Aldebaran MG. Off that, USDM brought the Core50MG7. Then, when Shimano tried to pull a sly one with the Chronarch (painted Curado E series), they brought the 50 with it.

That's what I thought.

It was more than just a paint job...it was a REALLY UGLY paint job.  lo

In a way I am kinda mad that I sold the 2 that I had, but I couldnt take the paint job anymore.

Congrats on the purchase bud.  With the size of those undees I'm surprised there was only one monkey hiding in there. I guess then it was shipped in an oversized, heavyweight container.  ;) ~shade  lo

I forgot to post this gem. Traded in my E6X 843 MBR and got a 2016 GLX 843 MBR. I can't say enough about how well this rod is built. About as close to a custom as you can get. Balance is amazing and the sensitivity is very close to my 7'3" PB rods. Dragging a 10" worm over timber felt great.

Rod loads so perfectly. 3/8 oz total weight is this rods honey spot! I've got my Exsence DC on it for now. Still not sure what reel is going on it yet.

I have an 842 MBR GLX, and I have to agree with you- that rod is seriously something special. So lightweight and well-balanced, hooksets are fast, accurate and easy and the sensitivity is terrific.

Bait monkey got me hard. This is all in the last 3 weeks:

Sold:
Core MG
Lot of squarebill crankbaits
Lot of soft plastics, one other lot still for sale.

Purchased:
Metanium MG7 with ZPI drag star and custom ccc, knobs and handle nut. Got it from Japan for $110
Ray's studio drag star for the SV105
Big TW order including some replacement squarebills, plastic worms, reel covers, etc.
7 speed gear upgrade kit for said Metanium and some Fuji hook keepers from TTT
Small lot of large topwater baits for a super steal on another forum

Planning on picking up a few more plastics soon, I'm in the process of getting rid of miscellaneous stuff I've accumulated and paring it down to what I know works for me and I like.

Could anyone tell me if that's a small profile ? Would it be the same size as Curado 70 ? or is it 100 size ?

No. I don't know the spool size, but overall size wise, it's the same as any Zillion. LMG says so but I swear my SV103 was thinner. Nothing to back that up though. It's much wider than a 70
Title: Re: Bait Monkey -- You're Fired (Confessional)!!
Post by: cbburke on August 13, 2017, 09:28:26 PM
Yeah - was reading about it and it looks like the same size as zillions.

Speaking of that, My only zillion is the Daiwa Zillion 100SHA that I got off the forum years ago for a "great price" Its paired up with Dobyns Champion 705 CB.

Its just Purrrrffffffeeeccct !

I just throw it and it would go 50/60 yards using 1/4 or 1/2 oz Lipless which I dont have have to use the thumb to stop from going "bonk" (backlash). I love it when I get some "eyes" ( :shocking:) on me at the pier (shore fishing). They would come up and ask me how the "heck" I do that ?

Of course, they are using some big/thick rods from walmart thinking that those bluegills will break their 30 lbs mono line.

Nice going man! What was the reel?

BTW I bought the 7 speed gear upgrade from TTT for my Metanium MG. Installed it and fished it for the first time today. That made a BIG difference in smoothness. A really big difference. Guess having like metals touching in the gears helps. Super glad I did that, and if I wind up using this rod as I think I will for squarebills, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, and topwater, it will be handier to have it a little sped up.

Nice going man! What was the reel?

BTW I bought the 7 speed gear upgrade from TTT for my Metanium MG. Installed it and fished it for the first time today. That made a BIG difference in smoothness. A really big difference. Guess having like metals touching in the gears helps. Super glad I did that, and if I wind up using this rod as I think I will for squarebills, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, and topwater, it will be handier to have it a little sped up.
Is this the MG you are selling? Also, brass is always gonna be smoother than aluminum. It's just the hardness of the metal that make aluminum more of a geary feel.

No, I'm not selling this mg. I'm hanging on to it! I sold my core though.
Funny about gears, my metanium MGL has aluminum gears and is super smooth.

I think this will hit the $400 buck mark !

Post by: LgMouthGambler on August 16, 2017, 04:59:37 AM
Its crazy. Some people will pay a ridiculous amount of money for a Core, when the same reel can be had over seas. The only reason I even wanted the Core50 is because I like to have all the different models of the design I like. Makes me feel like I'm not fishing the same exact thing, even though I am. Same with my Zillions. It's weird, I know, I have learned to accept myself. Haha

You reel guys don't mess around... lol I do not remember the specifics as far as the bearings or the handle.  Maybe LMG still remembers. All I know is that its  an awesome reel, casts far as hell, and its strong as an ox.

Nope not much experience in bass fishing forums other than BR. I have no clue what TT is unless it's gold and the Doc asks for samples.

You know you did remind me how many of those senko threads there were. I've never seen such a fasination with one stick of plastic.  lo  it's actually nice the mix of things talked about here.

I got the 3500, it weighs the same as the 2500 and it holds a bit more line. Guessing the spool is different, but if it weighs the same it can't possibly be a bigger reel.

Looking forward to trying it out.

You have my attention now. I'm all about getting the job done without breaking the bank. Lew's have been serving well for me for a long time.  And I really like the way the are reasonably priced, compact in size, along with generally one of the lighter weight reels in their class. Lots too like for me.

I'd like to see how you trick one out. Would be entertaining at least.  ;D

Lets see,
1st shot of Woodford at about 08:45, next shot of some unknown Scotch that was damned smooth at around 11:00, a couple of beers after that, then a couple more at the cafe, then a few more and a double of Makers Mark at the Tiki.........

Quick story to tell you all to show that Lee Smith has his sense of humor going.
Caddy called him while we were sitting at the Tiki bar. It came up that we would have a beer for him. Lee says to have a drink of whiskey. Caddy says which should we have, Makers or Crown.
Lee replies George Dickle. Joe says they dont have Dickel, what should we do?
Lee says: Leave!

Cracked me up but hey, I was drunk by then.

My preferred drink. I was going through a half gallon a week, straight, poured at room temperature into a chilled glass. It was perfect.
I'd considered picking up just a little small bottle, something like an airplane serving. Then figured that'd probably quickly turn into one a week... one a day... a couple fifths... back to a half gallon...
Nope. I've had maybe 5 beers in the past three years on a few special occasions and managed to avoid letting it become a habit partly because I hate the particular beers I drank.

Took advantage of a TW sale on Big Ez and the extra 15% sale they had going on for Labor Day.

Normally I would pour my own Ricky Swimmers but why pass up such a good deal? Plus I can always melt these after they have been used and make some new ones. :-)

Think I got enough swimbaits for the FLBR Classic on Lake Kissimmee ??

My stuff arrived and I must say that I think it's going to be awesome!!!!

I bought some new tackle. The snakes look cool, not sure if they are going to catch any fish but heck why not try? The 4" Twin Tail Menace Grubs have already proven to be fish catches, and so I got the 3" version of them to add to my tackle bag for when the fish are honed in on a smaller bait.
Got new gloves that fit perfectly on my large hands and feel comfortable.

But the thing I was really waiting for was my NEW FROG ROD! That's right, I bought another frog rod as I search for the right rod to keep me frogging for a longer period of time without fatigue. Sure I liked the Tatula Frog Rod, its super light, very powerful and performs very well. But at 7'4" it not easy to cast when fishing out of the back of a boat, it is also not easy to walk or work a frog from back there, and it's not easy to do those things from land either.
For a bit I have been considering downsizing for these reasons. Then I watched Flukemasters video for a second time where he talks about the 13 Fishing Muse Black he helped design. His points all seemed valid, but they go against everything I have been told about frog rods. Regardless it sounded like a shorter rod would help in my situation. The more I thought about it the more it made sense. So I bought it. The rod is 6'5" and it feels great!
It is perfectly balanced with my Tatula CT, the shorter handle end of the rod seems comfortable and the rod is as light as the Tatula rod.
I suspect my cast distance will suffer some, but walking a frog should be easier, and the balance should help my carpel tunnel issues and back problems.
Wanted to try it out today after getting it but the weather is crap. So I'll have to wait till Friday or Saturday to put it to the test in my local pad field and hydrilla filled park lake.

It might take you some time to get used to it, but youíll see that 6.6í rods are easier to swing around, and should help with your hand and back issues. Enjoy!

Monkey got me this week. I bought my first Shimano (Curado 200IHG) a couple months ago and I love it. Saw a 200G going for a good price on ebay and had to snag it. The wait begins.

With a bunch of big bills to pay here recently I have been staving off the monkey as best I can. Last purchase was a couple weeks ago, got two Jackall Gantarel swimbaits in shad color for $15 each. They are really, really nice looking baits and have fantastic action. I will definitely be getting a couple in gill pattern sometime when the money's not so tight.

I'm upgrading some equipment, better rods, newer reels. That's 2 spinning outfits and 1 baitcaster replacing some old Quantum AC 500s and Bionic Blades, those will go into the Church Garage sale next year or will be traded on new outfits next year. I'll be paring down what I carry and doing it with new, better quality.

Nice score LMG.
I have been seriously considering trying LH reels. I can't quite get over the idea that I use my non-dominant hand for all the important things in fishing, casting and working the bait, and relegate my dominant hand to, well, turning something.
Will probably start out with a Tatula SV, because I want to try one of them sometime.

I couldnt pass up a chance to look around the local tackle shop today I was working down the road from it. I picked up all the hooks for $2.48 a pack they were 50% off. I don't really care for the EWG style but some baits they do work OK and for a quality hook I couldn't pass them up. The WP I had been wanting to get for awhile I have a Loon 130 and really wanted the Powder but they were out back then so now I got the Powder 110 that should work great. And no it was not 50% off.  lo

Box from the Tackle Trap showed up today! It contained this:

(https://i.imgur.com/4mbxWuO.jpg)

Tatula SV in 7.3. Going to be using it for topwater and probably some spinnerbaits/chatterbaits.
A significant aspect of this reel is that it's my first LH baitcaster. The fact that I do all the delicate work of giving a bait action and playing a fish and landing it with my non dominant hand, while my trusty right hand keeps itself busy turning a crank, has always bugged me, so I figured I'd try lefties.
I put it on a rod and cranked it a bit, and I will say, wow what a weird feeling lol. Time will tell. If I don't like it I'm sure I can sell for good money.
But to make sure the LH experiment got a good chance, these were also in the box:

(https://i.imgur.com/0sEJYgf.jpg)

Three of those small bearings are for a buddy, and three are for the knobs and levelwind on this reel. Also included are ZPI SiC spool bearings. Hoping to make this thing a monster! :)

I had a 200 that I used down here for inshore fishing, and it did quite well. It's actually a well built budget round reel for the money, and especially for $60! You got a really good deal.

I went back onto Cabelas site last night. Wife said that I was allotted $250 to spend for my birthday since she didn't know what to get me. So, then having such a good sale, I decided to grab a few more things. Was gonna wait till Guntersville, but the price is hard to pass on. I'll get the new model when Christmas comes around. For now, I'll grab these and see which ratio works best for me.

I had a 200 that I used down here for inshore fishing, and it did quite well. It's actually a well built budget round reel for the money, and especially for $60! You got a really good deal.

Awesome! Glad to hear that from someone who goes through reels as much as you do. Thanks.

To a point this is true. I have learned a lot about reels and the companies that make them, as well as all the parts that are in them. Surprising it is to know various things. But, it was still a really good deal. Lol

I'm not really sure how it's all working to do what it claims. It's kind a odd as the line tie is on a little metal arm that is kind a free floating. These are the first ones I've ever had. Mike might know more about how it actually works. I only bought these because he said he liked them so much.
 I looked at it wiggled it and gave up trying to understand how it actually works.  lo
I did throw the bigger one yesterday for a little bit but didn't get a hit. But I didn't give it a really good try either.

Also is that the wide super duty?

I like my SV103 and it looks nice on my LSCR. But honestly I prefer to toss the $140 (I paif half that) Lews TPs. All my rods have them so when I go to the Daiwa I forget lol. I also don't care for the high speed ratio for what I mainly use it for. I forget to slow down lol ugh

I might sell it and grab another Lews. Or put it on a different rod.

I find it interesting that you are not a big fan of the SV103's?  What dont you like about it besides the speed? 

I was a big lews guy at one time and I thought the opposite.  As soon as I had the sv103 in my hand it was over for the lews.  I had a bunch of TP's that I was trying to unload a while ago but I ended up donating them.

Honestly it doesn't do anything the Lews don't and it was twice the price. It is smooth and it looks nice for sure.

The settings for the braking is hard to adjust. Literally hard to change the dial. It backlashs more cause I'm used to the Lews as all the other rods have the same reels on them, so I grab that one and pow, nest lol. It does flick under docks and cover nicley.

It is also noticeably heavier. The LSCR does a fantastic job, but I can tell the Daiwa is a chunk in my hand compared to the Lews. I had to swap the Daiwa due to bad braid during the classic. Put a Lews on the LSCR and it was super sweet.

I also don't care if I toss the Lews on the ground while bank fishing and I worry about rashing up the SV lol ugh

I haven't decided yet though.

Makes sense. Im sure you are used to the dual brakes of the Lews. You interested in a basically NIB Tournament MB LFS?

Tom, I think you can tell that some of us are surprised at your response about the Daiwa.  It has been almost uniform that most find the reel much easier to use and back lash scenarios are almost non existent.  It is an ounce or two heaver but the price is fairly comparable to the Lews.  Are we talking the same reels? 

We were discussing the TWSV103 Tatula series.  selling for about $130.00

He is talking about the higher end SV103, not the Tatula.
It's a heftier reel than the Tatula, I think on the old Zillion frame that LMG likes.

I think this is why he is having more difficulty with it. I think he would be much happier with a Tatula SV. It sounds the SV103 he has is a little harder to get dialed in than our Tat SV.

He likes the smaller profile of the Lews reels, which I can see as a good argument. I dont know if he has held the LFS series yet, but they are more like a Shimano 50E size.

That's the sweet thing about life. Everyone is different. I have the SV103xs which retails at $299 but can be had elsewhere for cheaer. So double a Lews MB LFS.

It is a smooth nice reel. It fishes fine. Cast just fine. Palms fine as well. The dial literally is hard to click and one click does a lot which is nice.. but I never move it much as it adjust so heavy.

I am definitely used to dual braking and the Lews are more comfortable.

Plus if I toss a Lews on the bank or bed of the truck I don't worry about it as much lol. This thing is too pretty to beat up.

Kinda like owning a nice boat you are scared to bump a dock. Got an old tin boat and you'll drive it through the dock lol

Those stock hooks? I've taken to replacing my spook hooks with the KVD Triple Grips. Had a few 14/15" fish bend out hooks on a couple of my spooks. Don't like that one bit.

Yeah, they stock. I have some extra hooks somewhere. I think it was more my fault as well, had the drag too tight. Not used to reels that have as much drag as this thing does.  lo

Monkey got me the other day.

Decided to try a Jackall frog cause the shape and color looked cool. Basically marketing got me lol.

Of course Iíve been waiting for my teckle sprinker Frog for months. Finally got it.
The arashi crank was on sale and I though the self tuning thing might be cool.

The fishhead spin should be useful when wanting to throw a smaller profile than a spinnerbait.

Of course was running low on tungsten and these were on sale so why not?

Damn Cabelas! I should have ordered 200 packs of the Rage Tail Magnum Bugs they were only $1.88. The reel was what I plan to try to use for me a dedicated swimbait setup. Not the huge ones but the 7" or so baits. I have one more reel coming, Lew's BB1, from Bud  ;) and that completes every baitcaster rod I own.

That teckle sprinker Frog would be great here. White so far has been killer. My homemade one catches fish like mad. Just haven't caught the monsters with it yet.

i started this monstrosity of a thread  lo lo

they were not on sale, those swimjigs are awesome, dont really get hung up in boat docks which is the primary cover in my lake.  Not all true total tungsten, either.  They are a tungsten resin, which is probably how they were able to get the shape of the head.  Therefore not as durable as real tungsten but they are still pretty tough. 

I got them at TW and they were about 6 bucks each.

no worries.  I didnt think 6 was that bad for them.  They are really sensitive and like i said they really glide over, under and through boat lifts and docks.  Knock on wood, I have not hung one up yet.  For reference I have used one for approximately 8 total hours of fishing over the course of a couple days. 

one of our sponsors, I think its monster has good deals on tungsten usually.  Like a couple dollars for a small pack of 1/8 oz and smaller weights.  trash bomb ones are about 2 - 3 bucks apiece which is a dang good deal for a big ounce + size.

So they have zr bearings for the SV? Would it even be worth it? I suspect you would lose some of the control and braking ability that the SV is designed for right?

Not with the ZRs. It will not mess with the control factor, and thats one thing I really like about them. You would notice a bit of difference on "startup" abilities of spool. I dont think you will really see a difference in distance though.

So not really much of a benefit except for lighter lures. With a faster "startup" I suspect lighter lures would travel with more ease.

Yeah she hopes she does too, every time. I'm pretty competitive, she takes it to another level. If she catches one tiny bluegill before I get a fish, she acts like a wide receiver in the end zone, catches another, the taunting really starts. Hooking up with a bass always shuts her up.

Gotta love it when the santa mailman delivers the new package of goods! I got something new to try out- soft rubber rat'l trap type of lures with glo sticks...

(https://s26.postimg.org/n1oimok6h/IMG_20171110_111925edited.jpg)

And just to stay out of trouble with the non-sponsor brand police, I have obscured all references to brand names and websites...

And here is a strictly Florida thang... something else just arrived and all new- now I get to take a pair of boobs fishing with me, and no it is not a couple of my buddies or a stripper or two or three... there is a new bait hitting the market with an interesting back story that is either funny or can make ya angry depending on how it is taken... but yeah, here it is... the all new Florida bass boobs! But will it catch bass as much as it might some fishermen???

And yes, this perky pair of boobs is real even if silicone!  ~shade

These are actually hitting the market here in Florida. Will they take off or will they sag??? Pun intended.

(https://s26.postimg.org/qilzbwtux/IMG_20171109_140326edited.jpg)

These will be sold as a single pair or a bag of boobs!

(https://s26.postimg.org/9tkjfzx9l/IMG_20171109_140240edited.jpg)

And just for the record... I just got my hands on these and have not tried them out so I can not say yay or nay on them. Just showing what just arrived. These are about to hit Lake Toho very soon...

So Lip what would you do with these if you got your hands on some??? Play with them or fish with them???  :-*

And did I mention the company putting these out is 100% all women behind this product??? Not men. Apparently this is for men sort of like what Hugh Hefner did but without the magazine...

I imagine it will cleave thru the water. Will it only catch males? Looks like it will make the bass more perky. Does it guarantee big bags? Or is it like putting  ^-^ on a boar? Please keep us abreast on how they perform.

Does this titillate the bass? Not sure how that guarantees big bags? Does this lure need to be worked like pop, wait, pop-pop, wait and pop again! or a different cadence like  "bounce off the bottom" with a good strong lift, and let it down again to the bottom before repeating the process.  ~roflmao

If I brought something in the house like that my wife don't have a sense of hummer and would go to the kitchen and (http://imageshack.com/a/img923/6710/DeIn19.gif) (https://imageshack.com/i/pnDeIn19g)(http://imageshack.com/a/img923/6710/DeIn19.gif) (https://imageshack.com/i/pnDeIn19g)  ~roflmao ~roflmao So FFF keep them down in Florida  ;D

Lip, I really have to question the creation of these new boob lures. I mean, what sort of motivation is behind the creation of them? Clearly the women behind these lures want to make money selling them, but what sort of thought went into their creation?

Most lure companies make lures that in some way resemble various naturally occurring foods that fish are already feeding on. And lure companies go out of their way to tank test their lures to create life like movements, shapes, and other characteristics designed to entice a fish to eat it or attack it.

But I have to really wonder what sort of natural food for fish does this lure resemble or is it even created to resemble anything at all in the fish world?

It seems to me by making the lure shaped like a nude woman laying on her back with boobs is not really designed for the fish. It really appears to be a design to attract male fishermen.

So I really have to question the legitimacy of a product like this one. And I have to really question the motivations behind its creation. It clearly appears to me to be a product designed for men by women to extract money from the pockets of men. It is sexism in lure form.

So for us men we can either laugh at it as some sort of a joke, or also be kind of peeved that someone is trying to manipulate us men for money with sexism in the same way Hugh Hefner made his career and fortune.

It seems the people behind this lure design are trying to make fools of us men for profit. Imagine if the situation were the gender reverse? We would never hear the end of it!  ~bb And we would never hear the end of the wiggle the worm jokes either!

(https://s26.postimg.org/4d1vlm3vt/IMG_20171109_140130.jpg)

And just out of curiosity... how would we go about rigging this lure? If weedless, then boobs up or boobs down? And where do we bury the hook barb? Should the hook slide down between the boobs? Yeah. I can see what sort of thought went into the creation of this new lure.

Wouldn't it be kind of funny if some national tournaments were won using this lure and some professional bass fisherman had to show on camera how to rig one of these and use it???  ~b~

With lures like this one, the joke is on us it seems if we buy into it. I don't plan on making these a regular purchase type of thing. I would use this for the joke it appears to be. It would be kind of funny to 1)have something other fishermen don't and then 2)whip up on them with it.

You are so right Lip. And I think that is precisely what the people behind this product are counting on. Making suckers out of us fishermen, but I honestly don't think a product like this one will go very far. I think if they truly want to be successful with their brand then they need to drop the sexism and get in on the realistic life like product game plan.

I have to argue that most lure companies may follow a traditional method to their madness. However that is truly not the case of some very successful lures though history. Innovation be it "woops" driven or fish driven can a good thing. I am not saying this particular attempt will out fish a worm or not, but there are many many lures id be willing to say lack the look of a typical fish meal.

I often laugh watching YouTube videos when the tuber insinuates a particular lure is imitating _____ . Seriously has anyone stood back and really looked at a jig with no trailer. It looks absolutely like what sitting there? Now as fishermen we can dream of it as what ever but to the rest of the world that has never known what one was remove the hook and id bet money they couldn't guess what the hell it is. OK want to argue that one try this look up Yoshihiko Ando Lures, Jackall Pompadour, or the Mepps Black Fury. If not for the hooks someone that was not a angler wouldn't know what a ton of this stuff was. The list goes on and on. 

All that said In the configuration it is in I wouldn't try it. Although I bet you money I can catch fish with it. Make that bad girl white and buoyant (put air in the breasts maybe have a air valve? ) where I can float it through the lilly pad fields and I can make a case its a top water catcher. Finish her feet and Ill make her swim face down and I guarantee Ill catch fish with her. Heck finished like that I might buy one just to say I did and to post a pic with my fish.

Reason 1: A specific rod that shall not be named at this time.
Reason 2: I run out of my favorite baits and color of said baits. A reorder will be an acceptable use of funds.

I got a few items lately. I was in my local tackle shop yesterday and they had about 50 Buckeye Mop Jigs in 3/8 and 1/2 oz in Black n Blue and Texas Craw colors 50% off. Id never used this brand but I have to say a nice wire tied heavy living rubber jig with what appears to be some nice rattles with a Mustad Flippin Hook for $2.40 each I had to grab a few in those colors. Picked up one of the Santone jigs as well just because it looked nice hanging there. ;D Had to grab a bag of Gene Larew Rattlin' Crawlers in Blue Fleck to try also. Picked up some more rattles for my other jigs. 

Got the Storm Squarebill and 12 packs of the Paca toads off eBay dirt cheap. Ive never used the Paca toad its huge and looks like it is just a huge version of their craw. I think it will work great for my lake. They love white and topwater and these were much cheaper than $3.89 I think a pack for the Zoom or Stanley Ribbit brands.

I might get 2 of them SD at least one in the 8 gear and possibly a 7 gear. I'm still not convinced the sale is for the new style. I didn't see the ad though.

Yeah the jigs surprised me they are really nice. The lady that owns the place is always marking stuff down if it doesn't sell. She has some system where they use colored price tags and each year the color changes. If they have been on the shelf to long she cuts the price hard and will only special order if you want it after that. They sell a lot of Santone jigs around here its a Texas based company and they have nice jigs reasonably priced. I'm guessing that didn't help these sell as they were several bucks more each normally. The eBay Netbait toads I got 12 packs for $11 and change shipped to my door. So less than a buck a pack delivered is nice. And the discontinued squarebill I didn't have one that color and I got it for like $4 at my door.
Yup looking forward to getting a deal on something on sale maybe a reel.

Ok, just for you, Lip.

I know there are some pretty awesome rods that are on this forum, and I was seriously thinking about spending the whole 200 on that ALX I was looking at. I thought about it, and figured I can get a really nice rod with great reviews, and get some line and some frogs and other cool stuff. I know there are better ones, but this is a big deal for me, going over the 100 price point for a rod. So without further ado, may I present my new
7'1" M fast Omen Black 2...

No one got the money bait lately?

Got some from Tacklewarehouse since my wife got me some gift cards for the holidays.

Powell Max 3D Spinning Rod 7'1" Light. 
Powell Max 3D Mag Bass Casting Rod 7'3" Mag Hvy Frog
Several Trokar Hooks
Two casting rod sleeves

The main thing that I like is this:

Cal Coast Fishing Rod Mule (40 bucks)

I tried this the other day and it's a MUST for everyone to have. It will make your life easier to transport. 

This is not me, I am not that SKINNY !

For a not real expensive rod that Powell 7'3" Mag Hvy Frog is a pretty good rod. I picked one up used and its stout. Doesn't have quite the tip for casting some really light small frogs but definitely a stick for the full size frogs or toads and pitching a 1/2oz or bigger jig if you like. Its actually pretty decent for pitchin jigs I was kind of surprised.

I have orders from Monster, Doc Irving, and Jann's on the way right now, plus I ordered a bunch of jig heads from a guy in Tennessee (cheaper for what I need than buying ANOTHER mold, sheesh!). And this week I'm gonna try to get my act together for the folks on the forum that donated to the Adopt A Family Raffle. Once I get all of their lure preferences then I'll make what will probably be a HUGE order. This Bait Monkey/Tackle Ape stuff is SERIOUS 'roun these parts.

I have a small amount of money available at the moment. Two things holding me back right now are
1) I don't know if I could talk the boss lady into agreeing, and
2) with the cancer diagnosis I don't know what treatment is going to be yet so if I end up in bed for a month or so I'm going to need to get a new laptop so I can stay connected with UB.

I started putting the money away for the purpose of a laptop if I need it, but I know Joe has one of the mis-labeled 736 CB Glass rods and that is calling my name. I'm sure he would make me a good deal that we could both live with but I may not end up being able to fish until June or July anyway so I can't see spending the $$ now for a rod I may not even get to use this year.

But I really want it. Damn monkey!!!  :P

Joe, you doing installment plans?   lo lo lo

from my understanding there was a run of 735 labeled glass rods that were actually 736 glass rods.  The ones labeled 736 were actually 735.  Both are glass and both are awesome.  They were available on the Dobyns refurbished store about a year ago I would say. 

I am not selling mine, perfect length and power to pull big girls from under docks and boat lifts. 

If you see one, pick one up. 

But, I do have some that I want to sell all at one time and for a great price.  the 784 ML is not made anymore and its a dang good jig rod.  734, no explanation necessary, 765 CB glass, great deep cranking stick, 733 savvy, good all around rods.  The St. Croix are just because I think they dont feel right in my hand.  I will make a bulk purchase deal :)

What are the st croix rods you have? PM me some exact models if you can.

I'm guilty of to much buying and I didn't buy near what some of you spent. My little Keitech order came in and I was at the local tackle shop and the 50% off on the mop jigs is just too hard to pass up. Wire tied living rubber with 2 rattles and a decent size very sharp hook. $2.40 each I had to grab a hand full.

When you go to the Dobyns site click on the store at the top. There you will see mislabeled rods and refurbished rods. All are still under warranty.

Yeah it would be sweet if it came with brass but its plenty light so adding brass gears its still a light weight reel with some nice features and man for $119.00 it was a smoking deal.

It fixes the hook hanger issue since my one real complaint on the Dobyns rods is they have a closed hook hanger this fixes that issue.  ;)

lo Yeah they did a really good job on it. If you don't know its there you wont even know about it. Its hidden that well. However if you want it its easy to deploy and keeps the hooks off the rod and reel. Also all my plastics don't have to have the hooks pulled out to put them away. To me that is a great feature.

thanks.  me too!! I am really liking those flap slaps for a main reason:  old school Shad rap's are dynamite in cold pre-spawn water.  The flap slap's suspend as well, so you can get the dual benefit of a jerkbait too.

the jerkbaits...probably didnt need them but the monkey whispered some sweet nothings in my ear...so what was I to do??  ~roflmao

Well I'm safe for a couple more weeks then.  lo Most of my tax refund is going towards our back property tax and then on some new furniture that Diana wants to get I might be able to get a couple of hundred to spend on fishing stuff which I will more than likely save for a NAFC 10 year reunion up in La Cross Wisc at the end of Aug.

Here she is with a brand new Lew's Tournament Pro G Speed Spool 8.3:1 TPG1XH I showed a page back or so in this thread. Its spooled up with Suffix 832 in Camo so the fish wont see it and run off scared as a little baby.  ::) I actually like the looks of the line but I don't think it is superior to Power Pro and it costs more. I just got this spool as a Christmas present.

The gold on the reel and even the carbon handle seem to blend in well also. I was really surprised with the looks of it.

One of these is on the way to me. Gonna see how it does for a punching reel. Stout drag and brass gears, along with a profile the size of a 50E Shimano makes it a nice option to try out. And, as if I need to say, I got a really good deal to give it a shot in the arsenal. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180205/501ae6bd9158000fb6930e19a622981d.jpg)

Negative. Nothing to beef up. Drag is powerful enough, and really just gonna be locked down as its gonna be used for punching mats. No need for spool bearings, as Im not making casts with it. I have a carbon fiber handle from Lews that Im gonna put on it, but thats about it. Not even gonna open it up. I was using a $400 reel for this, then realized, I really dont need that kind of reel for what Im utilizing it for. So I sold it, and got this. (and another reel, but youre gonna have to wait and see when it gets here. I will say, its a very pretty, solid, and bullet proof reel.)  ~shade

I thought it was always WISE to open and check the grease and lube done by the factory wasn't over done?

Or is that more important if the reel's goiing to be used more for casting distances.
But couldn't 'over lubing' cause challenges even if your only 'pitching'?

Actually the rod its going on is a Lee Smith Custom Rods 734 Liberty he built me a while back. Its got spiral wrapped torzite guides on it. That thing, even though its rated a 4 power, is insanely strong. What i really like about it is the tip allows the fish to grab a hold of the bait, and its gives a little bend at the tip. Then, I set the hook and its all over. Lol. I really love that rod. Its not the lightest thing, but man it is really freaking strong!

OK I just wanted to try this Berkley Cherrywood HD Casting rod for nothing more than I was bored. I got the one piece Medium Heavy MODEL # CWD701MHC. It was free shipping for a $20 rod. Well I had to add a couple bags of the clearance Devil Spears to get it to the $25 free shipping. Anyway I got the rod yesterday and set a old BPS 7.0:1 reel on it. For a $20 rod I am pretty impressed with it just handling it here at the house. Other than Id prefer it to have a couple more guides of better quality its still appears to be a capable rod.

Just never been a fan of the round reels no matter if they colored them to look like gold and smacked a very high price on them. But I can respect a nice reel and what others like. (https://i.imgur.com/GeUqFG9.gif)

The squarebills or the chatterbaits. I would think the chatterbaits would be killer in your area with all the grasses.

Funny how some just do killer on chatterbaits and some not so much. I am trying to use chatterbaits a little more but who knows how that will work out.

As for the squarebills I only have a few places with rock or structure that I feel like they wont get hung every cast so mine dont get used but on certain occasions.

Pretty much could take both completely out of my arsenal and I would survive no problem. Unlike my jigs, soft plastics, and my spinnerbaits.  ;D

Nice haul cojab glad the monkey is at your place.  lo

Yep, it is strange. Confidence I guess.
Chatterbaits and squarebills probably accounted for half my fish last year. At least a quarter on frogs and the rest on plastics and a few other cranks.
I have a spring trip to Missouri coming up and you can bet squarebills will be used a bunch. I would really like to figure out jigs though.

And I guess I never posted this but I couldn't pass up a Cyber Monday sale. The top rod is my new Dobyns 705 CB Glass. Not even out of the wrapper yet.
I'll be slinging those squarebills with this as soon as the water softens up a bit.
And I guess I got bit worse than I thought because there will be one more purchase later this week to sit on that rod and another purchase in April. That should take care of the monkey for awhile. I hope!

I also went a bit Dobyns crazy over the holidays.  Based on reputation alone, I ended up picking up some a refurbished Savvy 735 (paired with a Curado I) and a new old stock Savvy Micro 733 (paired with a Curado K).  Still need to pick up a good crank rod, though.  I'd be interested to know your thoughts once you get a chance to break that 705 in.  Waffling between the Dobyns or the St. Croix Mojo Glass.  Love my squarebills, but I'm more of a lipless crank guy.

I have bought a couple of the Rep Sample Savvy SSM735C (http://dobynsrods.com/store/#!/Rep-Sample-SSM735C/p/89906548/category=23844910) rods. I think they are the same? At first I thought they were a little to moderate feeling but actually don't see it that way now. They are very versatile rods for me. I pitch, frog, and jig fish with them constantly. Really really strong rods. I pulled 3 to 5+ lb bass out of the thickest of the big heavy lily pads all summer last year no problem.

Grabbed a St Croix Mojo Bass in a 7ft MH F. After the trade in, it came to $105 plus tax. I think that was a pretty good deal on a really nice redesigned rod.

What do you throw spooks on? Medium or medium heavy?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I throw my spooks cranks spinnerbaits on a 13 fishing Defy MH M crank rod.
Itís not ideal for the big topwaters I find the tip to be a little too slow.
I bought it though cause itís rated for the big lures.
It might actually be the right rod for the job, I donít know. Iíve yet to miss or lose a fish on it and Iíve caught a few good ones on the spook. But theyíve basically hooked themselves. Between the mono and the slow tip thereís a lot of give. :-/

Sorry for cutting in on the question to Matt but it depends on the value of the rod your buying as
I understand it.
Turn in a working rod or reel and if your new rod cost $30-49, you get $5.00 off. All the way up to the new rod being $500, you get $100 off.
The reel Im getting is $179. If I turn in an old reel, I get $30 off.

Oh I see, thanks for the answer. Thats what I was confused about. So it doesn't matter if the rod you turn in is a cheap rod or expensive rod, they are valued depending on what you get.
Cool. I've got a berkley lightning rod I don't use that I may take over there then.
Figured I'd get a bigger discount if I took 2 or 3 rods but thats not the case I guess.

Then I gave in and bought the 4 1/2 inch SWaver and the 6 inch SWaver! I'd been eyeing those things for a long time. The fact that I didn't want to pay 6.50 for shipping made me go and get the wavers that were on sale + the 10% off.

Went to BPS to check out their Classic sale. What a major disappointment. Not sure if they are all this crappy or just the one by me. For one, they had 3 trackers. I always like to go look at them and dream a little. All they had was the Crappie one, a 160 and a 170 (from 2015 brand new...WHAT?)
Anyways the thing wasn't even in good shape. The vinyl on a few of the lockers was all warped and looked bad.

So I went inside. I'm used to seeing a bunch of stuff with discounts. I walked the isles and found very few items with discounts.

I did get some tungstens on sale, yum dingers on sale (They had just 2 bags of 4" dingers...)so i got those and a 4 bags of the 5". Got some pliers, a mini fish grip from rapala that was on sale, and some owner wacky hooks I was running low on.

I did go check out the reels. Held a couple Lews, held a couple Shimanos. Really liked the Chronarch MGL size and weight. There is a high chance I may end up getting one at some point when I am ready to pair a reel to a custom rod. As much as I like the Tatula's, the Chronarch feels sooo much lighter.
Anyways that is a decision for another day. lol

Its a form of composite (plastic), and if you are not putting it under any serious load, should be fine. You dont catch any big fish anyway (Oooooooooh Buuuuuuurn!) Lol.

Hagane... A design concept for a tougher more efficient fishing reel.
HAGANE is a Shimano reel design concept created to withstand continual use and extreme abuse. HAGANE is an innovation of in-built toughness and durability, working alongside Shimanoís precision engineering. (Shimano's words, not mine)

This is directly from Shimano itself.

http://www.shimanofish.com.au/articles/shimano-s-new-hagane-concept.html

They never mention 'what' the stuff is made of BUT at the same time don't refer to it as a 'material' AT ALL.
With the exception of the words, 'forged metal' used ONCE in the whole link.

Strictly MARKETING terminology.
Nothing more...nothing less.

It's just their 'concept' or  company's 'Mission Statement'.
Not really addressing a material at all.......check the link out.
NO MENTION OF MATERIALS USED IN THE WHOLE LINK?

I borrowed a righty reel and took it out 2 times to learn. Let's just say there is absolutely no way in hell I am going to learn to cast with my left.
Just not happening. I'm about as awkward casting lefty as a Panda going through life. You ever seen those clumsy things?  ~sweat

I'm with you on that.
I had the opportunity to fish with some very nice reels last year. Unfortunately they were all righties. It just feels akward.
I couldnt even cast very well with them cause the handle was in the way!

Monkey just chomped into me big time.

DSG is having a clearance sale on some G. Loomis E6X rods.  Got a MH/XF spinning rod for $100.  Rated for 3/16-5/8, which is lower than my St. Croix Mojo Bass M/F rod.  Figured it would be good for shaky heads and soft plastics.

Im righty. I cast and reel in with my right hand.

<")))>{
Too much work. Ain't nobody got time for that. Also can't pitch like that. Feels weird the handle is in the way.
I'm a righty, I cast and reel with my right, but I've forced myself to learn how to pitch with my left. Pitching is where it's "too much work" (too slow) to switch hands for me, I like to have control as my bait hits the water. But casting with my right, I can switch hands while it's still on the fly.
There's about a 99% chance my rod and reel is going in the lake if I try to cast leftie, I know from experience.

How exactly does it cast ?  >:D lo What kind of weights does it say its supposedly for?

I've always wanted a heavy spinning rod but never found one I could see paying the price they wanted for it.  I always wondered why they are kind of rare too. All the spinning rods have a wet noodle feel to them imho. One reason I cant and don't fish spinning gear I need something that doesn't fold up like a cheap suitcase when I get a fish on.

All the spinning rods have a wet noodle feel to them imho. One reason I cant and don't fish spinning gear I need something that doesn't fold up like a cheap suitcase when I get a fish on.
If you like a heavy action spinning rod check out any ABU. I have a MH Villain and it will haul a stump out of the water. It is very sensitive also. My wife uses it for frogs.

Hey There -

If you don't mind, what kind of Prolite do you have ?
I have one that is sitting here that I am not sure what to do with it or value of it.

Oh man! That's as awesome reel made by Daiwa for BPS. One of the best ones they had, based off the Pixy.

Iíd have to go look but forget casting a 1/16oz weight and worm on it. You need at least 1/8.
My dobyns champion 704 is perfect. I can cast 1/16 oz all day on it with good distance.

I think a MF in the avid x would have been better. But we donít buy medium rods down here.

I may be wrong but I think it's a bit older than my latest 2 which are 10 bearing reels, really nice for light baits.

So Iím going to blame this purchase on Lou and the bait monkey. They colluded and then this happened.

The Gambler sale got me good.
I really like their creature baits and they make in my opinion the best swimming swimbait out there. Other than the one I pour myself which pretty much is a close replica of the ez swimmer.
Hard to pass up a big bag of swimbaits at the price they were being sold at.

Though I think I would have been better off using the money I spent on the 6Ē stick baits on something else. Not many stick baits in each bag.
We will see how they perform.

Actually these weren't really that expensive. I think 6 bags for 20.
Not all stick baits are created equal either. BPS makes in my opinion the best stick bait. The Sticko.
I recently tried the YUM brand and liked them, but the rate of fall is different. I've tried many brands. Never Gamblers though. So we will see.

St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rod - MJC71MHF

SKU:2244812
In Stock

Length : 7'1"
Power : Medium Heavy
Action : Fast

$129.99   in six EZ payments!  It's on its way!!!!!

Rick, I took your advice and went against my instincts and went with the shorter rod. I could have got a 6'8", but it just felt too weird; believe me, I mulled it over for days. I also have read MANY reviews that say the St. Croix H power is like a broomstick (specifically, the 7'4" HF, what Mojo Bass call it's Slop N Frog rod), and that a lot of folks use the MH for frogging. Apparently, it takes quite a bit of weight to load the heavy rod well enough for casting. Now I just need to drive down south and have Lou show me how to use it.

Cool! I think the 7í1 is a good size. Especially for you a bank fisherman. You should find it much easier to use than your current 7í6Ē.
Yeah I donít know about the mojo rods. My avid x MHF feels like a MHXF or. HXF. Iím actually going to try and sell it. Iíll take a little hit on it but I just donít need anything that freaking stiff for spinning.
If the Mojo series is similar then the MHF will probably work just fine for frog.
Hope it works out for you. Itís tough making rod purchases online. Not being able to see them and hold them.

Oh I went to BPS and looked at the 7'4"HF, it was very stiff, and I looked at the 6'8", which was fine, but like I said, it was weird short. They didn't have what I ordered in the store, but I went with it.

Ebay is the last resouce that I would use due to fees. but There are some advanages on that. On the BBC Board, Shimano Core 50MG7 is averaging $225 to $245 TYD. On Ebay, The last one that I saw was sold for $266 plus 8 buck shipping. SO it's kinda of the same to me but fees. 

I sold all of mine on the BBC Board. They all met my "asking price".

Even though Iíve used it a bunch when I first pick it up after using my longer rods I always feel that weird feeling like itís not the right height. Get over it quick when I land a bass on a frog though lol.

Cool thing is I ordered it about an hour and a half ago and got a text about a half hour ago that they already created the shipping label - on a Sunday!

Now the problem as you might expect is that it felt so good to buy that simple little item that the money is sitting on my shoulder whispering into my ear and putting all kinds of ideas into my head  :surrender:
Smallie the good thing about that place where we bought them rulers is that they don't have any fishing baits for the monkey to talk us into getting.  ~sweat

Been eying this rod for a while to up my UL game with my 09Aldebaran. Finally just bit the bullet with ebays 20% off select vendors. Dobyns Sierra 682.

Oh, and my otger Revo Rocket came in at the same time. Lol(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180305/29d469bc651a5bad2d4c0402882729eb.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180305/65cf443e5596eb153767b5a0b1eca5dd.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180305/576111141e01fbfa1d518053205c1725.jpg)

I have that exact same size Gantrell swimbait just in a different color. The only rod I own right now that I could throw it on is a saltwater spinning rod. I've been thinking about the Dobyns Fury 795 SB or 796 SB for it. What so you guys think?

Chuck it out there and catch a hawg!

I lost my 5 inch bluegill swimbait at Vista View (not on a tree, I was slow rolling it at the bottom and musta wedged itself in a rock) . Before I lost it though I hooked up with a big ol bass but the hook sucks on the weedless huddleston. I suspect thats why I lost the fish.
This Gantarel is for Vista View, and whatever other place I can chuck it.

I bought a Berkley Lightning Shock that goes from 3/4 to 3oz. Thats what I am using for my swimbaits.

I'm going to try and keep it away from the trees and gators lol.
No discount on the frogs, them be the frogs with the boot leg coming out their rears. Plop, plop, plop, plop!

My other ABU showed up today. Its actually not mine. :P A friend wanted one when I told him about the deal. he is a huge ABU fan so it was right up his ally.

 I also got a couple spools of 50lb BPS Hyper Braid to try. It was BOGO free. Man this stuff looks extremely thin. I actually went back and looked at the box thinking it was labeled wrong. Actually I think it still is but its measuring very close to the .28mm that it says its suppose to be.

So yesterday I get an email that a packaged arrived from UPS!
the monkey had got me and I was excited to get home and see my lures and put them in the tackle bag for the weekend.

Well I get home and no box anywhere to be found. I looked and looked and looked. Nada.
So I call up UPS and they tell me they are going to contact my local ups location to get more info and get a hold of the driver to find out where the box was placed.
They didnít call back yesterday. Today I call again and they tell me they will call me Monday with more details.

So I go fishing. Get home today and thereís a  box in my mailbox that wasnít there before. Trust me I checked lol.
Get a look and it says TW! Sooo it seems UPS must have found the box that they say they had delivered yesterday and actually made the delivery.
The color of their trucks represents them well if you know what I mean...

Anyways on to my new toys!

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180318/b37a0eb2b36fe1b9cc66f2651ff259fd.jpg)

Thatís right I got me some popper frogs from live target. Wasn't gonna let Lou corner the south Florida market catching big bass on those.
Got me a new lure from lunkerhunt. Itís a 3 inch dragonfly. The lure is bigger than I expected. But itís a topwater and made of a bouyant foam thatís supposed to be durable. Canít mix it with other plastics like the zman baits.
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180318/49c149acb83230dcafea30565c2558f4.jpg)

Got 2 swinging swim jigs.

A live target sunfish swimbait because I am impressed with the sardine version I have.

I also got a free topwater sunfish with the purchase of my 2 popper frogs.

I got a few reels that Ive been eyeing to get, and looking to get them for $100-150 range. I completed that with the Gen4 SX, Super Duty Speed Speel, Revo Rocket, and now the Tournament Pro G. I even got the really good deal with the Fuego CT. Trying to get a few reels in my "budget challenge" arsenal. However, the Abu LV7, which is a JDM reel, I couldnt manage to get at a better price than I could from Japan Lure Shop, and dont really trust other ebay sellers with JDM purchases. That reel is just a hair over the $150 budget, but I figured the Fuego CT offset the difference.  lo

Heres the thing with the LV7, its the JDM version of the ALX. What it has are better bearings, brass gears instead of aluminum (and a 7 ratio), and the braking system has more magnets, that are more varied in power. All this, with a lighter ported spool, will help to accel it in the light bait category.

Oh, and I forgot to add the SV105HS that I grabbed from TW when they had a killer sale on them. I think it was $149, but that was before I put the carbon fiber handle, ZR bearings, RCS cork knobs, PX R cast control cap and drag star, and levelwind bearing upgrade.  lo So, maybe that doesnt count?  ~roflmao

Um, thats a big negative.  lo  But, it will be a staple in my arsenal of fun. Nothing will "replace" my 50E Shimano reels. There is not a reel to this date that has the "it" factor that my 50s have, especially the way I have them set up. If you cant tell, I just have a reel obsession.  :surrender:

You just fell into the trap. Now he's going to tell you how awesome the reel is, and you're going to get one. Then next week he will tell you about another reel and how awesome it is then you'll get that one too. Next thing you know you'll be making a list like LMG with 15 reels he wants to buy and the funny thing is you'll never use them.

Anyways you're done.   :surrender:

No, my curado k is first, with the Rocket a very very close second. When I finally catch a fish on it, if the drag performs as well as the K, it may move up to first. When I caught that 11 lber, my drag was loose from catching dinks that morning, and she ran. The drag peeled out line smoothly, and when I slammed down the star, it stopped that big girl in her tracks. I am a big fan of Shimano drag systems.

Doyo has a stronger drag system than Shimano, but its not as smooth. Locked down, you cant budge the Doyo.

I dont think im gonna change the gears right away. Not planning on using this reel for braid or real heavy applications. Pretty much using all the budget reels with 20lb Senshi to test them the same. All but the Fuego CT, OG Super Duty, and Gen4 Revo X. Since these reels just scream braid. Lol. The SV105HS, Gen4 SX, LV7, Revo Rocket, and Tournament Pro G are all Senshi spooled to get a somewhat similar comparison. Wow, now that I really look at the list, I went a little nuts. I think I need to order another reel bag. Lol

LOL this is what I was saying when I said you needed an intervention! I wasn't kidding. You should get a few reel bags so that you can fill the other one soon.

I bought twenty-three packages of Berkley Power Worms, and some sort of Trick worms too, for .75 and 1.00 a pack... I own a hundred pounds of plastic or more, with a Doc Irving order still in the mix. My gawd.

Oh yeah- I bought  a DT-10 for $1.50 (don't own any of them, but I'll be sure and add it to my 1000+ plug collection).

And I bought five pair of "polarized" sunglasses for $4 a pop. I know they junk polarized, but you can't buy even $5 sunglasses any more.

Got bit by that Monkey, for sure.

They also had Zoom Lizards for .88 a pack, mostly in Candy, Carolina-Rig colors. I own bag after bag of Lizards, so I passed.

I've had some good days at my Walmart but seems they don't come around like they use to. Also the brands and baits they have started carrying aren't really to my liking that much. However they do have a full isle of "stuff" so I do have some choices if I go there. 

I also never bought 20+ bags of anything.  lo I do the same as BassHunter buying 3 or 4 bags of something I use often if a good deal.

Yours and Ricks store sound just like mine. I have never bought 23 bags at one time either. The most I have bought was 10 bags of GY Senkos when I founds a great deal on them but they were all different colors.  ;D

Here's my Wally World haul-

<a href="https://imgur.com/5pnzTfT"><img src="https://i.imgur.com/5pnzTfT.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

Four buck sunglasses, and JIMMY HOUSTON's too! They GOT to be good! Well, they're darn cheap "everyday" glasses, for sure. And there's the $1.50 DT-10.

The Berkleys were .75 for the Power Worms, and $1 for the Shakey Snakes... Never used them, but that's a pretty good price. And while takin' the pic just now I find that one of the packs of Power Worms is TEN-INCHERS. Must have been a mistake- all the Wal Marts around here carry the 7" version.

Okay. Doc Irv is pouring my next order right now. I need a little bit of fishin' line. Then come May I'll probably order some more of Doc's BIG worms. So, I'm pretty much done for the season. Yep.

Got me some nutech jig heads and 3Ē roboworms for those days where a smaller profile works best.

Cranks I decided to try a few that are 0-3 feet so the bomber in 2 different sizes stood out.

The RŠpala DT Fat swims at about a foot and is a bigger profile

The Mannís 1 minus I got cause Iíve heard people rave about them. Also shallow runners

The snaps for quick swaps.

Quite a bit of stuff and I sure as heck didnít need it all but the monkey got me and I wanted to try different brands to see which I preferred.

The Mannís 1 minus I can say beyond a doubt are stellar baits for me. They are one of my first crankbaits and one of my first "go to" baits. My father in law was always amazed how I could take a day where we both were getting skunked and turn it into a several catch day chunking one in Baby Bass color. I don't have a ton of them but I have the usual dark, light, bright, and natural color selection of them. Awesome baits.

I've never had a problem with them. If you see them in stores looks at the back of the package. The ones marked "elite" have better hooks.

Mann's was using Eagle hooks on them. Mine were sticky sharp and with the right rod and mono never had a bent hook.

I haven't had a issue with the actual hook on the Baby but I didn't like that they would tangle more than I liked. So I swapped mine to a combination that helped a lot but I don't remember what combination I went with. I think a 6 and a 4 but don't recall the brand or style.  :( Mine are probably needing changed just from age at this point. I havent used them in almost a year.

They do say Eagle Claw hooks on them. I still haven't taken them out of the package. But I brought them with me for some testing today.
Yeah with mono I don't worry about bent hooks, more like do the fish stay hooked.

Depending on the trebles I will sometimes switch to the KVD Triplegrips. Yet to lose a fish on those things.
But I don't need to switch them if they work fine.

For example I refuse to use the hooks on a spook. I always swap those out after I bent the hooks on a 1lb fish (in their defense I was using braid on that one). I also lost several fish on them. Never again!

I hear you Rick and I just bought some Nu Tech Crappie jigs for my upcoming Crappie trip at the end of this month so I can put them to the test by throwing them up in some Christmas Trees and Rip Rap to see if I can get them hung up.  ~bb It's spots like that that we throw our regular 1/8 oz Crappie jigs close to but try to keep from getting right in them. Oh I also just bought another one of them Fatsack measuring rulers too.  ;D

I got a chance to try out some of my new toys yesterday.
Caught 2 dinks on the nutech, one with a small swimbait on it and the other with a ribbontail worm.
The roboworm on the nutech drew no bites.Neither did a texas rigged senko, so I am thinking the fish wanted the bait on the bottom and with a tail.
I did catch a 3rd dink on a trig and uvibe.

I also threw the Minus 1 and really liked it. It swims true out the box. I did have the hooks intertwine once on me. So I could see myself changing the hooks to avoid this. I just want to make sure I don't change the action.
The minus 1 got the attention of a dink that came over and bumped it but never ate it. No hookup.

I tried the Bomber A (the small one) and I did not like it out the box. The crank did not run true. I tweeked it and got it running right, but unlike the minus 1 it didn't go through the vegetation quite as well. I found that strange since the bill is square and bigger than the minus 1. It grabbed more stuff.
The minus 1 cranked through the stuff and picked up very little of it. A quick jerk of the rod and the bait was cleaned off. Not so with the bomber.

I just got in my Nu Tch Crappie Jigs that I just ordered and they didn't have the Black colored ones in stock. After I placed my order I received an email from Bo and said sorry but when he was filling the order he said we are also out of chartreuse heads.  if you will take red in place of those, i will send a couple extra for the trouble. I just got them in and can't wait to get out there and put them to the test by throwing them up in them Christmas Trees and Rip Rap to see if they will get hung up. They look great but the jury is still out on if they will make it back to the boat. I will do a full report after I test them at the end of the month.

Nice! That's a good assortment.

Down here in our limestone bottom lakes no jig is 100% safe from getting hung. It's just the nature of the beast. I did get hung with the nutech but was able to get it free. Of course these lakes are fished from the bank which always adds an extra layer of difficulty to the recovery of lures.
With that said, I do prefer the nutech shape and the dual weed guards. I think it gets over rock much easier (reducing the chance of getting hung) and got through milfoil and other clumps of vegetation really well.
