July 4th One Outfit Challenge
« on: June 11, 2019, 08:23:49 PM »

4th of July One Outfit Challenge
Rules:
Runs from July 4th through July 7th, any one of these days you can work into your schedule.
1 day 1 rod 1 reel all day.
Three baits minimum. Must use at least one moving bait and one bottom contact bait.
Third bait can be anything else.
No duplicates: EX: a pitching jig and a football jig. Or two different creature baits. They would count as one.

This is a test of the equipment and your ability to work several different baits.

Please give a review of how the Equipment worked out and pics of any fish.
All reviews must be posted by midnight Central time Tuesday July 9th.

No cut off dates to sign up. Actually no sign up. Just make a review post after you trip and then post here to let us know you posted a review. Please include the post name.

One lucky eligible reviewer will be drawn to receive a prize pack that is being worked on as I type this.

We have negotiated a Mister Twister package and a few Dobyns hats as prizes.

I am going to participate with my Dobyns 736C and Daiwa Tatula SVTW.
I will not be in the running for the prize though.

Hey guys if our forefathers could defend us with one musket the we certainly can catch bass with one outfit.

Hope you have fun and learn something in the process.

Mister Twister is going to provide baits. The winner will be drawn from all the qualifying reviews.

This is going to be very useful for everyone to see just how versatile a rod can be. Make sure to list your brand, power rating, basically all the detail you can in your reviews.

I will be fishing July 4th morning if all goes well.  I should be on the prettiest lake in the country,  Lake Jocassee.  If I can remember to do this,  I will participate.


I will be using a Dobyns DX743C paired with a Team Lew's Lite.  My baits of choice,  at this point is subject to change, a shakey head worm, a swimbait,  and probably some sort of top water bait.  I will decide that morning and abide by the decision.  My report will tell what I chose if this is fair enough.

Brad and everyone else,

There is no need to choose an outfit today. If you end up on Guntersville you don't want to have to fish with a sissy stick.

Choose a rod when you know where you will be fishing and stick with it.

Zip, I don't mind, if I had to do this more than once on different lakes around here, after having my head examined I'd still pick the same outfit. It may be sissy but it sure catches fish.

I don't know if I'll even be fishing those days.  To me it is like trying to pick a favorite rod...or favorite reel.  Pretty darn hard to pick just one combo.  As stated....wait until you know where you will be fishing to pick a combo.

A lot of my rods are pretty versatile.  I've invested a bit in both rods and reels over the last 10 years.  Now it is a problem of too many choices.  Yeah.  Big problem.   lo

MH do I pick Diablo Spec R, Deputy, RX7 Rainshadow or Tatula?
Med. do I pick Regista, Tatula, Smallmouth, Sniper or Helios?

Which reel: Zillion 50th, SV103, Steez 100, Chronarch B, Scorpion, Helios Air, Purple Alphas or Primmus?

For Med. I am tempted to pick the Regista/Scorpion or Helios Air.  For MH the Deputy/Steez or Primmus.

No problem choosing if a spinning rod is required that day....Regista 610 MLF/Procyon 2000.

LOL yes that is why this challenge started. Anyone can say they would use something but when it comes to actually doing it things get fuzzy. I am still trying figure out which one I am using.
Good luck picking just one.

Id love to play but Ill be in NYC that week. Ive done this before, forcing myself to fish just one technique for a day or two. It really makes you think differently about your approach to each technique.

Syracuse area, we fish the Oneida River a lot while up there.  Tried to fish Oneida Lake last summer but my stomach doesn't do well with the waves there, so we didn't stay long.  Thinking this year we may try some new spots just haven't figured it out yet.  I will wave as I go by Rochester area on July 3rd! ;D
