  1. Man Jordan Lee had a huge bag today to win it. Good for him wish he was on my team though.
  2. Bass Pro Excel (you can get their 1500 yard spools right now for $7.49) also you buy 2 you get one free and free shipping after $25 order. I use it on all of my spinning rods now after a guide I fished with last year told me that after years of using Trilene, he switched a couple years ago and has great luck with it.
  3. Ok so I said I wouldn't change my lineup but I did, here's who I have right now. A: Combs B: Ike (he finished behind combs twice on this lake and should be motivated) C: Montgomery D: Zaldain (there's going to be less of a crowd following him and he'll just be able to fish) E: Wiggins
  4. Well the Classic is this weekend does everyone have their teams picked yet?
  5. Here's what I put together not going to change it now since last time I did that the guys I swapped out did great and the guys I ended up with stunk it up. A: Combs B: Ashley C: Bobby Lane D: Williamson E: Jones Jr. Not sure about Ashley, but who knows it sounds like there were some pigs caught out there during a tournament last week, so I might be like the Big O where anyone could hook a big fish and move way up the leader board.
  6. Thank you for the really detailed response, what would you use the 7' Med fast baitcaster rod for? Squarebills? Also what do use for a drop shot rod and the line?
  7. Fishing lure lots are $5 each, I would be willing to ship if you buy all of them (you would pay for shipping).
  8. I want to get you're thoughts on what line you would spool up these rods with and why. I'll list what the rod/reel is and what I was thinking I'd use it for and the line that's on it. I mainly fish for largemouth and the occasional smallmouth, most of the fishing I'm doing is not in extremely thick cover like matted milfoil, but mostly lilly pads, pencil reeds, deep weed edge and sunken trees. Baitcating setups 1: 6'6" MH moderate tip with a 6.3:1 reel spooled with 50# braid and a 8' 17# fluoro leader - Swim jigs 2: 7' MH moderate tip with a 7.1:1 reel spooled with 15# mono with a 8' 17# fluoro leader - Spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, lipless crankbaits 3: 7' M fast tip with a 7.1:1 reel spooled with 17# fluoro - Jigs (skipping docks) Spinning setups 1: 7' ML fast spooled with 8# mono - Tubes, worms, topwater 2: 7' ML fast spooled with 8# mono and a 10' 8# fluoro leader - unweighted worms, flukes 3: 7' ML fast spooled with 8# braid and a 10' 8# fluoro leader - Jerkbaits, square bill crankbaits
  9. So what do you guys think the Classic is next weekend do you have your lineups ready? For me bucket A is going to be a dump shoot since most of them could finish at the top.
  10. Bass Pro has their Spring fishing classic sale going on right now with free shipping on orders over $25
  11. I'm just going to pick the same guys you do so I have a chance at winning HAHA. Since it's in Texas I'm Alton Jones Jr. would be a solid pick and maybe Keith Combs, but what do I know. Seriously thinking about just pulling names out of a hat right now.
  12. Lowrance mounting bracket QRB-5 used a handful of times in new condition. Bought it for a second mount for ice fishing but ended up using a different locator instead. asking $10
  13. I used to shoot a 4 pin fixed sight, but I found that for me when having 5 pins and shooting out to 60 yards (pins set at 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60) the pins are so close together that I was having trouble with the pins blurring together and it was causing me to be less accurate then I wanted to be. I switched to a Trophy Ridge single pin and it's been awesome, I have marks at (20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70) when I'm practicing I make a habit of shooting my 30 yard pin at 20 yards and 40 yards to see where I need to hold to hit the bulls eye. When I'm hunting I just set the pin at 30 yards and I'm good to go out to 40 yards if a deer comes in quick, if not and I have time to range and adjust my sight I'll do that. For me hands down I'd go with a single pin slider type sight.
  14. Wow the best guy on my team was Ish who took 62nd place or something like that. At least I picked the two guys that placed 102 and 103, I think my team got together and left the lake for lunch each day and never came back.............. Not sure how else to explain how C. Lane only weights in just under 7 pounds on day 2, he must have caught all the big ones on day 1, oh wait he only weighted in 10 pounds on day 1.
