    Northland jigs

    Never had a problem with them. Use their hexi fly and mud bug about 75% of the time i'm fishing.

    When is the sound of ice cracking okay?

    I've got a couple buddys that a deathly afraid of ice cracking. Nothing like a good cold day on early ice with them for a little amusment. The key is to scream like a little girl when the ice cracks below you and watch you buddy drop to his belly

    Opinions on Marcum lx3

    The Fl-12 is in no way comparible to an LX-3tc. Not saying vex's are bad as I just upgraded from an fl-8 to an Lx-3. Things that an LX-3 has that the fl-12 doesnt: Fully adjustable zoom 5x the power Soft case Better target separation And MUCH quieter!

    first fish myths

    Never heard anything like that. But I have a few buddies that I take out and when I'm with them the last one to catch a fish has to bite the head off Its been the same guy three times in a row...

    VX-1 or LX-3tc?

    Sold my fl-8 so time to upgrade. I can get a vx-1 for $250, or the lx-3tc for around $300 after the $50 rebate. My question is the lx-3 worth the extra 50 bucks?

    Before I got my JM Meatstick I wouldn't fish perch or gills without a spring bobber. Now i've basically got a built in spring bobber. I run 2lb line and the smallest size gill pills or mud bugs and have no problems.

    What would be your first purchase?

    Vex first hands down. Might take longer to get a pattern on fish with a hand auger, but once you do its game over with the vex

    whats your favorite rod and reel?

    Just got the JM Meatstick and love it. Have the reel off a genz stick combo on it right now but plan on getting something new. Can't get a better panfish rod for $30 imo.

    Winter tactics for carp

    Not sure where u live, but in iowa we can snag em. Find small ponds off of the rivers that are still open and snag away. Got 5 today doing that, had a bunch more on. My friend got over 100 two winters ago doing the same thing
