1. Details: Channel Catfish with a Worm

    So I caught this nice sized catfish the other day on vacation in Florida. I caught it by throwing bread in the water and waiting for the catfish to surface and then ...more I would cast to it. Forgot my scale at home how much do you guys think it weighs? My guess is 7 lbs,but tell me what you think.

      It's ok I like using baitcasters but spinning is sometimes easier. Do u have any baitcast suggestions I'm looking for a all around reel
    9. Cody Fuller 0
      I go with spinning rods for anything i have any doubt is too light for my baitcasters
    10. Cody Fuller 0
      Ya thats what i would do
    11. MattLewis 0
      Ok so I should just stick to spinning for my live bait rigs? @Cody_Fuller
    12. Cody Fuller 0
      Sorry i couldnt find you something
    13. Cody Fuller 0
      No the rig might be too light for the baitcaster
    14. MattLewis 0
      Ok so the tatula reel should be light enough? @Cody_Fuller
    15. Cody Fuller 0
      Whats wrong with spinning rods for that
    16. Cody Fuller 0
      That may be a little light for it
    17. Cody Fuller 0
      Mono/ fluero
    18. MattLewis 0
      No live worm on the bottom for carp/smallmouth. And what type of line? @Cody_Fuller
    19. Cody Fuller 0
      It should work fine for that
    20. Cody Fuller 0
      It is also important to use smooth lines no sandpaper braid
    21. Cody Fuller 0
      How big is your weight
    22. Cody Fuller 0
      Soft plastic?
    23. MattLewis 0
      Would it cast a worm with a split shot on it for light creek fishing? @Cody_Fuller
    24. Cody Fuller 0
      I like diawas personally if you get one with a t bar so any tatula will cast better but how light

  3. What type of lew's baitcasting reel is the best to buy? Not outrageously priced but within 80 to 120 dollars

  4. So today I had my baitcaster resting on a bridge railing and a giant catfish took it over the railing and into the water. It was 230 dollars and I need a replacement ...more obviously. What do you recommend?

    1. herdholland3 0
      Maybe a 13 fishing concept a and a mojo bass rod
    2. MattLewis 0

    Slab crappie my friend caught at the dam. He just threw a minnow up against the wall and let it float out a bit. Did the same for about 5 trout

  8. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Just got my new gander mountain elite series baitcaster. I just wanted to know what y guys think I should spool it with? Mono backing?

    1. MusicCityBass 0
      I tie a modified uni knot that keeps both lines pointed in the opposite directions
    2. james_b90 0
      Put electrical tape around the spool and put a good amount of mono on it then braid

  9. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Live shiner

    Went to my friends cabin on cheat lake and we had a blast. This was the biggest fish we caught coming at 23" and 6 pounds even •Eagle Claw Trailmaster rod With ...more an Abu Garcia reel

    1. Sutton Dole 0
      That fish is fine if he is holding the back, it's almost little to no pressure on the jaw @big_bass
    2. MattLewis 0
      I know it was the same fish because it was missing an eye @big_bass
    3. MattLewis 0
      This was from a month and a half ago And I went last weekend also and caught the same fish and it grew and is healthy
    4. big_bass 0
      @MattLewis you are going to break that fishes jaw and the fish will most likely die. Hold the fish without pulling the jaw down.
