1. Headed up to Conroe this week. First time fishing there, any tips on catching some bass are appreciated.

  2. Headed to Lake Raven in a week. Never been before and looking for ways to catch em. Any tips and insight is appreciated. Heard it’s the land of the giant bass.

      Jared, don’t fish there much. lake has a lot of grass and Lilly pads from the shoreline. I’ve had success with a spinner bait along the grass line and a weightless ...more worm into the grass. in case you don’t know it also has a nice population of gators. good luck

      try posting directly into that lake's feed. then anglers that follow that lake will see it.

  3. Anyone know why this happens? A bunch of dead shad all over the pond. I still saw schools of them that looked fine also about 8 or 9 seagulls flying over head. Oh ...more ya it is my favorite pond too.

  4. Well I need to start throwing chatter baits more. I bought some a while back and never liked them. Looking for a brand of chatterbaits heard a lot of good stuff ...more about zman but was looking to see if there are any other brands. I like the look of the zman custom im looking for a more life like presentation like the zman custom, some preferably with eyes kind of like a swim jig. Really anything will do. Also looking for trailers, paddle tails, craws or chunks. I throw a lot of swim jigs so I don't think that will be as much of a problem.

  5. Looking to buy a new spinning reel. Looking to spend about 80 dollars or so. I was looking at the Lews Mach 2 speed spin but the reviews weren't the best. Thoughts?? ...more I will be using it for finesse bass fishing.

      Pfluger.....got mine a couple of years ago from Gander Mountain on Black Friday...came with an extra spool so I could change line on the fly if need....smooth drap....awesome ...more performance:

      I use all shimano had some for probably 20years,lil more pricey but last forever
    3. Christopher Pereira 0
      pflueger is good, but they're heavy for their size. You'll get much better feel the lighter you go. important for finesse fishing.
    4. Jake Joseph 0
      I've got Pflueger reels of all sizes and love them all great reel for the money IMO
    5. Christopher Pereira 0
      i replaced my pflueger presidents with ardent cforces. pfluegers are good but you don't realize how heavy the pfluegers are til you use lighter stuff. Lighter ...more reels will make a big difference with finesse fishing, but i haven't tried the ardent bolt which would be the one in your price range (others seem to like it though). I can get you a 25% off though if you wanted to try it. 3 year warranty is pretty sweet too.

      I second the pflueger!!

  9. Favorite fluorocarbon and braid? I am looking for new line to use. I was thinks bf about vicious because I had used there Fluoro before and their braid has great ...more reviews. What do y'all think?

    1. Jared Berkovsky 0
      Thanks guys.
    2. John Burdette 0
      Power Pro
    3. James Cooley 0
      can't go wrong with seagar 100% flouro Jared. also the suffix elite brand is very good as well.
    4. NJ Squatch 0
      Invizx 12-15# on BC. 4-8# vanish on spinning. Power pro or suffix 832 braid.
    5. Christopher Pereira 0
      Trielene 100% flouro and vanish do a fine job for me 4-12# class, if i'm looking more for a thick tooth resistant leader i go with 50-80# yozuri. Braid I go ...more with powerpro, never had a problem. But i can't wait for Ardent to come out with their braid so i can use it!

  10. Looking at fish finders for a kayak. Should I get one with just down imaging or down imaging and gps?

    1. Keith Bodine 0
      Didn't know that Morris. What brand are you referring to?
    2. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      You can pay the same money and get cartography too. Just a thought.
    3. Keith Bodine 0
      That's all I need in shallow water. I enter my starting point and my fishing spot, then follow the yellow brick road back to Kansas. 😁
    4. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      The new Garmin strikers do not have Cartography. Just shows waypoints you have entered.
    5. Keith Bodine 0
      Drew, that's a great idea about using Fishidy's GOS coordinates. Thanks for the tip.
    6. Keith Bodine 0
      Jared, I just got rid of my Lowrance and got the new Garmin Striker 4CV with chirp and GPS for my kayak. It's perfect for Luce Bayou, and I use it in West Bay. ...more $179.00 at West Marine in Kemah. I got the two tear extended warranty for $29, and if it breaks due to lightening strike or just quits working, West Marine will replace on the spot. Don't waster your money on the $110 Garmin Striker. It doesn't compare.

      Get the most u can afford u won't regret it
    8. Jared Berkovsky 0
      Thanks guys. I was looking into Garmin and Humminbird units.
    9. Jacob Anderson 0
      GPS is definitely a plus, you can mark your waypoints and hot spots and come back to them later. I recently won an older Lowrance sonar unit and all it has is the ...more traditional sonar screen, no GPS. For now, I'll be using Fishidy to mark spots that I find, but it would be really nice to have a GPS/sonar unit for convenience and the fact that I can only use Fishidy where I get data with my phone. If you plan on using the unit a lot you probably won't regret spending a bit more for a unit with GPS.
    10. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      Gps is for navigation. Saving fishing spots or other points of interest. These are referred to as waypoints. Down scan is a sonar usually in 455 or 800 MHZ. Newer ...more units usually use an all in one transducer. Garmin, Lowrance and Simrad are all good brands.
    11. Jared Berkovsky 0
      Thanks Keith. What is the difference between side imaging and gps?
    12. Keith Thompson 0
      Down imaging, side imaging and GPS if you can swing it
    13. Drew Gierach 0
      Great question and I'm looking forward to hear what others have to say. Personally I use a combo of the Fishidy app and iBobber device. I use the Fishidy website ...more and app to pre-plan and mark a few spots to try, and then use the gps in the app as navigation. It's not perfect, but it works. I then use my iBobber device to get a more accurate (updated) look of what's going on once I get to the spot.
