Why do you no longer stock GLoomis Jerkbait Rods?
not a pro angler but always looking to join a federation and one day I hope it is possible
could you start selling the hummingbird G2N networking series helix models wanting a 7" size
I like to shop and add things to my cart over a period of time. You now add them as I see what I am low on and make one order instead of multiple. Why is it that after a few days, my cart will emptied. I added something every day and today it is all gone.
I'm looking for a source to buy Bagley's Diving Rattlin' Killer B in Mustard and Brown Craw, especially Mustard. TW is out of the Brown Craw. Does anyone have any idea where I can get those?
any word on a father's day sale ?
I asked awhile back about getting the Nichols sledgehammer jigs and spinnerbaits in the Clent Davis signature colors. Just wandering when those were going to be available there's some really good swim jig colors for here in the south and the large mouth are starting to eat really good thanks.
Where can I buy 3 strand braided stainless wire so I can use as weed guards for my jigs that I'm making?
Message me back a mailing address. I have a few tubes of Shimano Bantam Oil, I'll send some your way. Brian.
Mike, I would stick with the medium (1/8-1/2). I think the Med. Heavy (1/4-3/4) would be a little to heavy duty and stiff for drop shots. However, a 7 ft. rod might help you launch those flukes and senkos a little further. I only have one spinning rod that I use for bass fishing and it is a 6'10" medium (3/16-1/2) Powell Inferno. I can cover just about any finesse technique with that rod.
Mining TM, I appreciate all the assistance you add to Tackle Talk.
I'm getting an Abu Garcia spinning , 6'6", 1/8 - 1/2 oz for tossing Flukes, drop shot and Ned rigging. Is this rod too light ? Would 6'6", 1/4 -3/4 oz be a better choice ?
Thanks for you input. Mike
70 Degree Weather in Virginia this Saturday during December. For sure taking this opportunity to hit some local ponds with some buds. Tight Lines.
While the Lew's speed spool lfs is your best bet on TW, another good casting reel is the Bass Pro Shops Pro Qualifier, but don't pay $100 for it. You should be able to catch it on sale for $80 or less some time in the near future. Also, there is a seller on ebay called sportsman's outfitters that sells Daiwa Tatula reels for $96(free shipping). They are legit, I've ordered several reels from them. You should get your rod from TW though, because rods can get damaged easily during shipping and nobody knows how to send rods like TW. Plus if something does happen they will pay the return shipping.
I would like to see you guys carry the Hoax Fish Bamboozie Craw. It is a 4" soft plastic big profile crawdad with excellent action. You can check out the video at www.hoaxfish.com
This thing drives me crazy or at least tries too. I get pissed off I'll leave it alone. Anyway....
I'll keep the sale in mind and go over my list of things (I think) I need.Most likely some line,some spooks,and some hook hangers.
Those spybaits work you just have to keep slowing your retrive down until you find the one they cannot stand.I took them to Canada with instant success.Only problem was the Pike like them and don't play fair.Now I use a short leader of "Not 2 Kinky",a barrel swivel,and a cross lock connector.That fixed thier wagon.It also gave me a chance with the the Steelhead in Erie too.
You watch the videos on that lure and they stress light line. I use 6# for the 80s and 10# for the 90s.So far so good.That is a big factor in the presentation line as you can get away with.
Before this shuts me out let me send it off. Be cool and stay on em! capt/ Andy
Maniac, When I saw the rod had really light line and lure specs I thought it would be good for fresh. Most of my inshore saltwater fishing is for stripers 20 pounds and up which this rod just wouldn't be suitable for.
Hahaha. So apparently I just have to check your page. I feel like I should get some notification, but oh well. Yeah, the Black Friday sale, it's there biggest of the year. Unfortunately some big brands like shimano and diawa don't apply. But it's still really worth hit. And honestly the deep diving is just to give me a break from tediously slow jerk bait fishing. It's definitely a shot in the dark. I might try some spybaits as well. I had some good luck at the end of winter last year after I switched to a much lighter line. Thanks
@#$%^& IT DID IT AGAIN! Lost another whole message. I'll try this agian later. Be cool

There's going to be a "Thanksgiving Sale"? Already got a list made just waiting for such an occasion.
Hey! No big deal.I figured you'd find them eventually.I was pretty flipped out when I found yours and how long ago it was sent.
I've had pretty good success with Diawa more with the spinning reels than the casting reels. I was campaigning Shimano Curados but tried the Lews and they are in my opinion great.
I'm not so verse in deep cranking.My experience was long line trolling and that just don't get it in some cases.You sound as though you know what your doing so I'm sure you'll come up with a rig that does the deed.
Since I'm afraid of loosing this message.I'm stopping and sending now.To be continued...
Hey capt, I suck at computers as well. If I can't cut it down or hammer it, then it's just out of my realm. I'm just now seeing the messages you responded too. Maybe the friend request needed to happen. Honestly I have no idea. Any who... I really appreciate your advice and read most of your responses because they don't leave out details. So I took what you said and found a reel (although a new brand than my normal selection), but I'm still in the experimental stage of trying brands I don't currently own. Which they are all fine and I've had for years. But I've never tried a Daiwa and have been curious about them for some time. And their spool spec seem to be fitting for what I want to do. Thank you again and I hope you don't mind if I come to you with future questions. Just make sure you check before the thanksgiving sale haha.
