  1. In Topic: Polarized Lens Color

    Yesterday, 11:04 AM

    Unfortunately because of my prescription I am limited to my choices. I tried the ones I purchased with a brown/amber lens on the Clinton River yesterday and was able to see in the water. So far I like them. I was thinking about getting a 2nd pair with a different lens color or returning the ones I have and switching the color of the lens. I have heard people say they can see bottom in over 10 FOW so that's kinda what I am looking for. I think when it comes to prescription polarized glasses it doesn't matter if they are Oakleys or Ray Bans. I think the only difference really is the style of the frame and shape of the lens. Now for those that have regular polarized glasses I do believe that there is a difference in how they perform.

    Donnie....... how did you like the selection?... as far as stocking a variety of baits (i.e. full range of colors for major options?) Up there with local places or BP?

    I think they have a fair selection. They just about have tackle for every species of fish in the area. I did see a few different lures or jigs that I don't see at Bass Pro. Also a few different colors. I think they have something for everyone in regards to fishing no matter what level from the weekend warrior to the hardcore guys/gals.

    I use suffix 832 in 30lb on my topwater frog rod. And my drag is locked. I have never cought any big fish over 5lb but anything under 4lb I just winch them in through grass no problem.

    Yeah I'm going to try the suffix cause you recommended it. I haven't really caught a bass over 4lbs on it. Only a few times I have caught a bass with a bunch of weeds.

    I have Costa blue mirror 580g, the great for tuning baits in lake st Clairs clean water, but in more stained water they don't work as well. For all around Amber is by far the best color, even when it's partly cloudy there still bright to look through. Costa del Mar makes some great glasses would recommend them to anyone.

    I were prescription eye glasses and not contacts so I can't go out and buy Costa's or Oakleys or any other brand of polarized fishing glasses. I can however have prescription polarized sunglasses made which I did. I didn't have time to research lens colors because I lost a lens to my everyday glasses and needed some ASAP.

    First Trout since I was a little kid....

    18.5 inches caught on a Meaps #1 with gold spinner and a crap real that I need to figure out how to fix. I was heading out to watch the MSU domination of Oklahoma so he lived to fight another day. And, I have never had trout so I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep him.

    Nice trout. You should feel proud of that catch. Lot's of guys fish there and most end up catching nothing. I would definitely get that reel fixed though. There's more trout in there that are bigger than the one you caught. You don't want to hook into one if you don't have a good drag on your reel especially if they get into that current and start ripping off line like its nothing.
