  1. Heading up this weekend and I know that trolling is not allowed... just looking for confirmation that that includes lindy rigging. Thanks.

    Livewell question.

    I have a 17 foot tracker and have fished tournaments for like 5-6 years and only have had one fish die in the livewell... and thats because the recirculator broke. I generally add Sure Life Catch and Release however, but dont think it is completely necessary. You will be fine.

    Shimano Baitcaster Question

    One of my Citcas is missing an E-Snap, I think this is what they are called. I must not have snapped it in place when cleaning it this winter. Anyways I went to fleet farm, Menards, Home Depot, and auto parts stores and could only find em in plain steel, where they are almost black looking. Does anyone know where I could score a stainless steel one? I believe they are the 1/8 size.

    Dobyns or Powell?

    Havent used a Dobyns but own 4 Powells. In general I like a little longer all around rod... for texas rigging, jigs, etc. So I was looking at brands that made 7'3'' models and Powell was one of the few that offered them for a resonable price. I have two 7'3'' MHs and two 7'3'' Hs and just love them... LOVE! Also, I bought them a few years ago @ 199 a piece so its an even better deal now.

    Fin Tech Title shot jigs

    I bought some of these a couple of years ago with the thought of using them for some deep water fishing, but I had horrible hook up percentage and havent used them since. Anyone else have the same issue?

    Setting the Hook

    oh, I was thinking you were using the gamma finesse wide gap...because you said it was a size 3. Did you mean 3/0?

    Drop-Shotting

    Never tried Gamma flouro because of the price... but I absolutely LOVE their copolymer, the best on the market IMO! Not looking foward to finding a new copolymer line but I did find some on sale the other day and stocked up.

    Setting the Hook

    I would suggest a more sweeping hookset, that's what I do with a similar set and specifically with that type of hook. Dont think there is a real need for a 'snaping' hook set because there is need to push the hook through the plastic like on a texas rig for example.

    Do you use steel leaders?

    Never for bass. I just dont seem to get bitten off that often... maybe only a had-full of times a year.

    Who's Pickin' Crawlers This Weekend??

    Any crawler pickers here in St. Paul area? ... The last few years they just dont seem to be in my yard like they use to. I remember when running the hose in one spot for ten minutes would produce a couple dozen. Anyone else in the st. paul area notice a decline lately? maybe im just crazy

    Stright shank worm hooks,

    What kind of knots are you guys using with the straight-shanks? do you use a snell knot... for braid? what about with flurocarbon?
  15. YUM

    Braids

    Well, I'm using a new braid this year: Sufix Perfromance, low vis green. When I first saw it it reminded me of the old, neon green-looking, Spiderwire because it has a similar color... only not as 'neon'. It is also kind of limp like that old Spiderwire... which I liked about it; and I tried it today and so far so good.
