  3. If you watch the MLF events where the participants are "mic'ed up", you can definitely hear some of the brands make a whiny noise. Don't remember what brands, but can really hear it on some boats. May just be a case where one of the same brand is louder than another of the same brand.
  4. Last week
  5. Anyone have any experience with the new Garmin trolling motors? I've heard it compared to the Ultrex but no absolutely nothing about them. I recently looked at a Caymus CX20 equipped with the Garmin system. thoughts?
  6. Thanks for the info fellas. The cost difference is definitely the hardest part. I never considered the under water noise a factor. You all are right about the cost dropping some. I have noticed that on EBay. Wes- I did notice they must be more arrow dynamic. When you set the hook in shallow water on a rock, they do fly at you a lot faster than a lead weight in the same weight. Very scary for your boat and body parts.
  7. +1 to what Airborne says- he hit the nail on the head. Made the switch to tungsten and never looked back. Make sure to check EBay, sometimes you can get decent prices on bulk Tungsten- this helps offset the cost some. I’ve got a few dings in my boat where Tungsten hit and almost knocked myself out with 3/8 Oz coming back at Mach II- it left a mark.
  8. So, I'm a believer. I can feel the difference. The data depicting the sound difference under water is irrefutable. The density of tungsten allows me to use smaller profile weights. That's a huge enabler when swimming my t-rig or c-rig (I throw both a lot) thru heavy cover. I recommend staying away from the weights w/ the little plastic sleeves. I find they do more damage to line than weight without the sleeves. The pain of making this switch was the price - the Tn weights are expensive. The good news is more people are selling them so prices are coming down a bit. For me, the extra cost is worth what I get on the performance end.
  9. What do you think about tungsten weights vs lead weights? Is the cost worth the results? I’ve always used lead bullet weights with a Texas rigged creature bait or worm but finally bought a few tungsten weights to try last year. Seemed like I had the same results. Have you all had different results using one vs the other? What do you all prefer?
  10. I live in Spring Hill and I need to find a good spot to get a couple of rods repaired.

  17. Might sound funny but maybe you're spooling on to much line. I use copolymer mostly but to much of any on spinning reels will cause problems. I leave about 1/8 in from lip of spool. This helps a lot with tangles, wind knots etc etc. This varies with size of reel but not filling the spool completely might help.
  18. Congrats on bringing fish to the scales fellas. See yall at the next one.
  19. Forgot to add that my spinning rods are mostly braid to leader. I have my tightline rod spooled all the way with 6lb fluorocarbon and a spare spool for another rod all the way with 8lb mono for clear water topwater. Everything else is braid with an Alberto knot to the leader.
  20. I hang my spools on a nail when I respool line. For the most part,I have found that have the line come off the bottom of the spool for spinning and off the top for baitcast. Think I have only had one brand of line that was the opposite. To check to be sure it's spooling correctly, wind three or four times and then move rod tip towards the spool. If it twists the line, flip the spool over. It will loop while you spool it if you have the spool turned the wrong way.
  21. I wish I would have done that this weekend. My spinning reel gave me a fit al day Saturday then finally just blow up on me when I went to cast. It was and still is a mess. I’ll have to re-spool it now. I’ll remember this next time. Thanks for the info BB.
  22. +1 on Brwnbass' recommendation. Saw Chris Lane do this on one of the BASS fishing shows. It works!
