  1. New Crank bait rod?

    I haven't decided yet. I am leaning towards a Ducket cranking rod and o=a Revo Winch. I have a couple Shimano rods but seldom use them. I often reach for the Croixs & the Loomis. I am interested in the Powell rods after reading on here. i saw TW had some on sale but they were Purleish, and i don't think I can pull that off.
  2. Abu Garcia rods and reels?

    I am a Fan of the Revo's. I have owned the STX SX and Premier. I got rid of the Premier because it was so light it didn't the same feel as the others. personal preference is all. i want one of the new Winch for a crank bait reel, but its $200.00. Wish i got your discount
  3. New Crank bait rod?

    Dobyns, Duckett, G. Loomis, Powell , St. Croix, Quantum……..ect! What’s the best?
  4. New Crank bait rod?

    I’m in the market for a new rod for casting deep crank baits. Mainly Largies, but might tackle Brownies once in a while. I’m not after money saving advice but more of what will work best and why (length action ect). Please go into detail reel and line choice if you feel you have the right set up nailed down. I’ve only been doing this for one season and have been throwing a 6XD and a DT 16 the most. I will more than likely be trying a few of the new deeper models after I-cast has highlighted a few.

  6. Bass Tourney?

  8. 25th Annual FoxMasters

    Thanks to all that helped put this on!! had a blast again this year. Cats seem a ton harder to catch than a perch but i'm sure there's a reason why there worth the same amount of points. Also most Bass tourneys have a 12" mn and on this one its 14". Most people release them, any reason for that? Again very well ran... great job
  9. Any one lake jump ins going on around the area that dont cost a $100 to get in? How about the couples stuff that I fished 12 years ago?
  10. Anyone have info on these so i dont have to look thru old posts. Dates, Times, Cost,rules, and who puts them on?

    Sound like a blast!! I wish I had a monster to share.
  14. Locator ping

    After talking to some of the pro's that come into the store I would say that it deffinetly can. Walleyes have been known to spook from it on some clear lakes like Gull. Just what I heard from pro's I haven't seen a differnce myself.

    What ever rod you get I would for sure have the Best Revo you can buy on it wheather it's a $99 one or if you invest $249. You will have a better return on investment. There is a reason why some models wind up in a bargin cave.
