I don’t know much about these reels I bought it as a cheap combo second hand a few years ago and I haven’t put it down since. I think I will be changing my line soon though as I’ve been learning more lately the braided I have on it is just too heavy.

I look at the line diameter and try to match the braid diameter to the recommended mono diameters. That means 10#-20# on my reels but I put 30# on my TX4000, which seems to be the R2000's fat uncle. Same sort of bare bones basic reel, but a little older and beefier, discontinued I believe.

I've been thinking of trying a Color Braid for my outfits here in Florida. Why? Well I noticed that I could see the line so much easier with the ones that had older and thus more faded braid on them. Several times the only indication of a hit I had was the line moving off. With the lighter braid I can see it better than the darker braid.

I would still darken the first 3-4 ft with a sharpie like I do now, although I'm starting to think that this too is an Old Wives Tale. I use Straight Braid for swimming a worm and I almost never color the braid and the fish just don't seem to care.

My problem is that every time I go through my tackle to cut back I see that there is something I don't have in the boat so I end up with more not less ::)

In my defense, I fish a wide variety of water types that lend themselves to different techniques from topwater, spinnerbaits, cranking, deep worming/jigs to pitching and punching.

I may not catch em but I'm prepared  lo.
Same here man. Except, I'll go through tackle and give away a few things here and there that I've had no luck with, and get to thinking about stuff I don't have and haven't tried out.

Speaking of, how do the rest of y'all get rid of stuff? It may have been mentioned already and I just didn't notice.
I give away some stuff, some stuff I throw away. Depends on price and whether or not I know anyone that wants something. I've given away some soft plastics and cheap cranks, but usually look for a trade on the pricier stuff.

I may look for or try to start a facebook page for tackle trading. I know the forum has classifieds, but I'm thinking of something strictly dedicated to bait and local.

Great tips! Thanks!... definitely will try this year.

I am more like a "finesse style" and like to make my rig a smaller profile. Here is a pic of the 1-inch EWG hook I am going to try and I believe it would make the worm more lively when shaking the rod.

I will use this rig with 1/4 oz weight, zman big TRD and leave the tip of the hook in the middle of the worm.

That reel serves as my main frogging reel. Granted a frog is pretty heavy lure, and taking that into consideration, the reel launches the frog into orbit if your not careful. Lol

That is exactly what I want - I want it to launch to orbit !
I will go back and try it again to see what the fuss is or I will just swap that with the Scorpion 70

Good mornin' UB!
Bit chilly here, 53° and a gray cloud blanket. Got another Dr's appointment in a few hours. Don, you got me thinking I may need to swing by Academy while I'm out!
How old are these knuckleheads you're dealing with, middle school? Dialing up 911 is a no-go, especially from a school, especially right now! Police get a 911 hangup from a school, they're going to be ready to come into the worst possible scenario! I know I and several others here know what it feels like to have to go into a situation where the only intel you have is "This could be very bad." NOT fun at all.
Hope you got back from the shopping trip and got the Mrs some help in the yard! That's something I'm not looking forward to myself. I need to get my push mower fixed. I've been borrowing my landlord's zero turn, but my yard has so many small decorative shade trees, holes, dips and knolls that a big mower just makes it look like crap. My little 20" or so self propelled push mower gets a much more uniform cut and doesn't tear the turf when I turn. I'm sitting on about 3 acres of land, but only cut about 3/4 of one acre.

Rodney, I love that revenge idea, that's about what I was starting to think. It's about the best and easiest way to get everyone at once. I've done it before on the pipelines. I had a crew of hispanics and one had horrible gas pretty much all the time, and he thought it was hilarious to rip the seams of the universe every time we got in the truck. But there was another little thing...
It was so horrible, he couldn't stand it himself! So one day, I passed out dryer sheets to everyone but him. We got in the truck, hot as hades, and headed on down the road. As soon as we heard Armando's south end say BUHRRRRRRRRRUMP! He started cackling. Until we all whipped out the dryer sheets and held them to our faces as I rolled up the windows, locked 'em, and turned off the AC.
So we were rolling down the highway, steaming Armando's butt breath and laughing, he was screaming "SEÑOR! SEÑOR! THIS NO BUENO SEÑOR!"
I yelled back, "ARMANDO! TU CULO NO BUENO! TU CULO NECESITO CORN COB MUCHO GRANDE!" (your butt needs a huge corn cob)
It was hilarious.

Lip, my feet are just like you describe, just deadened. I can't even feel pressure on them. Nearly the same reason too. The shot at the dentist office serves as a nerve blocker because of where they put it. Most of the nerves in my feet are just dead, so it's the same effect.
My toes still move just fine and I assume they just work by reflex to keep me upright. It probably helps that I can still feel most of two toes on each foot, so at least they know what the other ones are doing, but I've seen a man with prosthetic feet who seemed more sure footed than me.

Good deal!!! Just making sure you weren't overwhelmed with Honey dos!! lo
Naw I was just over exerting myself and was plum wore out lol.
    I’m not as good as I once was,  for as long as I used to be good at it lol.
  Weather is turning nasty this evening so there is going to be a big push to get the transom finished and the motor hung today (because the boat has to go 6’ out the front of the garage door before I can have room to work on the transom end).
Right now the wiring locations are critical to everything I have to do at the bow panel to finish it up. So I need to hang the motor and get the wiring from that, at least routed in the general locations.
Lots of updates tonight if I can stay awake lol.
