@metalhead @SwampMafia ... It's a von staal vs200 spinning reel... Sealed drag 100% corrosion proof surf spin. The toughest reels made... Great machine.. I'm ...more only going to have 50lb braid slapped on.
I would love to get a fly class together and work some ideas and come up with a few for both fresh and salt guys ... @Cowboy713 @wyldechylde77 @sparksalittle ... ...more Love to hold a few workshops free for
@Cowboy713 .. Thank you much... Yeah that big boy has seen som action... But nothing over 4.7lbs yet... I lose 2 or 3 a year like it on the flats workin reds... ...more I love it! Use those rattles in salt ;)
@LivewellHero keep us posted. You have a very critical audience here and that is what you'll need. Think outside the box. Study attractants, materials, designs, ...more physics and add you to make your mark.
@LivewellHero ... Mess around with all sorts of material.. Floating ,sinking..incorporate them together.Floating center in the claw shape in the middle of the feathers!Create ...more what you have yet to see!
@LivewellHero I think try several ideas. Let your mind think like a fish and everything you could notice about a lure. Every individual component from head to tail.. ...more Then work them in a bath tub.
What would you think of a craw chunk with the feather claws to puksate and move on their own as the jig rests, but the bid of the craw has a ring around it to act ...more almost as a scrounger to displace
@LivewellHero ....think of the look and feel..But think the physics of motion on textures in water ..And we will all buy from you .Think about your name being on ...more pro tour boats. Aim to beat the best!!
@LivewellHero... And when the bait stops the claws(feathers) have a subtle flare .... It's like having several different speeds, shapes,and actions! And they ...more are scented! You can make this affordable
@LivewellHero now you're talkin.Notice the bulk of the tail section and how much water it displaces, this with help the jig skirt flare with a kick... The feathers ...more will close fast like a real craw ...
I could incorporate feathers... I do like that idea. Hm, what else? It would be scent infused, Ill try to make it natural looking but also with lots of action. Nice ...more and bulky as well. Any other ideas?
@LivewellHero create something like them .... I'm pretty sure if you did I'd buy from you... We need a smart young driven mind to take us beyond even these! ...more These are different and awesome. Be better!
WOW! So much info, I had to read it twice! All top shelf stuff! Gonna have to print this out, laminate it & put it on the boat for reference. I can see me vertical ...more jigging it off the face of Pickwick
@Ben_Sanford .. An undressed jig head is fine .... And works very well when water is to hot for bass to accept larger baits... Big fish will sometime prefer smaller ...more baits in hotter conditions...
@Ben_Sanford weightless t-rigging is fantastic in the warmer months do to its ability to hard glide = more time in their striking zone...drag ,pop pop stall drag ...more and repeat ..work various speeds.
@Ben_Sanford .completely through the hydrilla and onward into your primary strike zone. Never use more weight then what you need when punching and always use heave ...more gauge hooks. And lower gear ratios.
@Ben_Sanford when using this punching I work 80lb suffix 832 line on my megabass LIN 10 mars for winch like purposes . Use the smallest weight of tungsten that ...more will still allow you to penetrate ...
@Ben_Sanford working humps ledges and deep submerged cover you can't beat a c-rig I use the t rig when I'm working it through the spring spawning shallows. ...more The bites that are triggered through the..
@Ben_Sanford Bass hold in a more dissolved oxygen rich band being in weeds or other types of structure... A c-rig allows your bait to work different depths and present ...more your lure slower than t-rigs...
@Ben_Sanford In the super hot months and very cold I tend to work it either weightless and in deeper water situations when I'm searching for them I work it c-rigged ...more it truly depends on the oxygen band
@Ben_Sanford yes to all this rigging types and even weightless texas style. Depending on the time of day and water conditions and time of year and body of water ...more I'm fishing this lure can be productive
