Today, 11:19 AMRight now you can buy the Elite 7 or Elite 5 chirp and get a $100 mail in rebate if you purchase the unit between April 27, 2015 and August 2, 2015
04 July 2015 - 02:47 PMThe 4 walleyes that I have caught in the shallows so far this year have all come on lipless cranks. Previous years I have gotten them on 1/8oz- 1/4oz jigs w/ a 3" plastic grub. At night I like to use minnow colors.
28 June 2015 - 11:28 AMNice job on the panfish. The few times that I use artificial baits for panfish I do pretty well with a small black panther martin or a plastic beetle on a small jig head. If you do any fly fishing those foam spiders or ants also work pretty well.
28 June 2015 - 09:21 AMMan i would not want to use mono with any frog. The hooks are big and THICK wire. Gettign a good hookset with mono is way harder than say braid. I would stick to braid on any frog.
I use 20lb suffix braid. I didnt want to go too heavy of line. But if I had to chose again id go with 40lb for topwater
I just bought the baitcaster and went with mono because i wasen't comfortable enough yet casting to waste expensive line. I've never used braid before but will buy some next time I spool up. Thanks
If or when you spool up with braid all you need is about 50-60 yards not the whole spool. Not sure how many yards of mono you would need to use for a backing though. That would depend on what # test you are using as backing and braid.
25 June 2015 - 08:49 AMI've been thinking of going topwater but thought they wouldn't work offshore and if the fish aren't super aggressive. Any specific lure that i should try?
If the weeds are thick try using a hollow body weedless frog. IMO the booyah pad crashers might be one of the better topwater frogs out there for the money.
