My July one outfit challenge review
« on: July 25, 2019, 11:10:48 PM »

  I was able to get out and take the one outfit challenge on Wednesday the 24th. My spouse wanted to take my twin 4 year old grandsons camping while she was on vacation so we rented a cabin at a local state park for a couple nights. I knew I wasn't going to get to fish like I would have liked to but I figured I could get a few hours in while the boys went swimming or played on the playground. I seen that they had boat rentals (pedal, kayak, canoe and jon) and thought I would fish out of one of them but unfortunately they only rented them on Fri, Sat, and Sun so I had to make do fishing from the bank which I did find some nice spots. This was my first time fishing there so I didn't know what to expect but had read that the fishing was good.

  Here is the gear I chose to take with me
 
  Rod - Dobyns Fury 734c

  Reel - Daiwa Fuego CT 7.3:1

  Line - Suffix 832 50lb braid

  Lures - 1/8 oz t-rigged mister twister SinSation
             1/8 oz t-rigged lizard
             1/4 oz spinnerbait
             1/8 oz belly weighted 3.25" rage swimmer

  Those are the baits that made it in the water. I had a 3/8 oz jig, a topwater popper and a few different soft plastics but did not get around to tying them on. I only took a small tackle binder with me for convenience.

  The weather was really nice with temps in the 80's with low humidity, A nice break from the extreme heat and thunderstorms we had over the past couple of weeks. I was able to get started out around 10:30 am and I decided to start out with a texas rigged sinsation and after trying a few promising looking spots without a nibble I switched over to my go to bait the T-rig lizard. I had seen a laydown earlier and it was just begging me to toss that lizard up next to it. On the second cast I got a bite but tried to set the hook too soon and being a little over zealous I cast back in there and got myself hung up so instead of hauling that big log up to the bank (that 50lb braid was moving it pretty good) I chose to break it loose and tie on the spinner bait, it was getting close to lunchtime and I knew I would have to wrap it up til later that evening and I figured I could hit some spots quicker with it. Unfortunately I had no takers. The kiddo's had me go swimming with them during the afternoon  so my plan was to hit it again after dinner. I probably had a good hour of daylight left so I tied on the swimbait and headed for some key spots I seen earlier. The first spot was taken by a dad and his kids so I moved on and fished several spots without a bite.The sun was going down and the water was calm and I was wishing I had my popper with me but had to make do with what I had so I headed for this small point and on about the 3rd or 4th cast I got a bite about 10ft out from the bank, it kinda caught me off guard as I was watching some kids fishing across the way, I didn't get a good hook set and it got off right at the bank, from the glimpse I got it appeared to be in the 2-3 pound range. So the fish won that round ~fff 
but how did the outfit handle the challenge?
  Let's break that down

  The Fury 734 handled everything with ease. I almost opted for the 735 but I figured the 734 would handle tossing the lighter stuff which it did. I just feel like the 734 is a good versatile rod.
  This was the first time using the Daiwa fuego ct and it was easy to get dialed in and get to fishing, it cast and retrieved very smooth and I feel like it can handle any technique. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this reel to someone just starting out using a baitcaster.
  I was a little surprised at how fast the suffix braid faded but the overall performance of the line seemed good.

  All in all the one outfit worked well and I had fun trying I just wish I could have spent more time on the water but for me anytime I can get out and make a few cast is better than not getting to go.




  Thanks for reading and tight lines!
                Gary

Nice write up. I didnít take the one outfit challenge but a 734 would definitely be a rod id consider for me if I did. For me here the 735 is a little more useful for the way I fish most of the year. Also not being the Champion series my Savvy rods like the Furyís are a little more on the moderate side.

I am a Sufix junkie and use a lot of their Hi Viz yellow. It does fade some but I hadnít noticed it fading any faster than power pro or any other name brands. But being yellow fading only slightly changes to a light yellow so it isnt a big deal. Especially since I dont buy into the concept fish know what line is. lo That and my bass are stupid they eat wire baits, soft and hard plastic baits with rattles and 6/0 hooks hanging out of them. Whats a little line gonna do, scare them? ~roflmao

I have been switching over to hi-viz line but Academy only had it in the green and I was wanting to try out the suffix. I guess I havent noticed the fade as much on the yellow.

Great report Gary!  ~c~

Thanks for the info on the gear used. It looks like I will be having a Fuego CT headed my way next week so it was good to hear your thoughts on that.  :)
