1. In honor of shark week, my black tip from last summer. It was the only thing we caught all day but this made for a fun fight making it all worth it.

      What is the problem with keeping it if you are going to eat it. Plus shark is delicious.
    2. Geoffrey Polefko 0
      @ea120454 you are allowed to keep sharks. And the point of shark week is to show people the beauty of sharks not to stop all the killings of sharks. Plus that shark ...more falls in the legal limits so

  2. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Caught him right off the edge at end of retrieve in some tall grass. Weighed in at 2.5lbs. Pond my friend and I found out in Rosenberg, doesn't look like it's ...more been fished before but you never know. My friend also caught a 4.5lber and we also had a good amount of 1-2lbers too all on the same rig.

  3. Details: Other Freshwater

    Could anyone tell me what this is? Very narrow fish with lots of teeth. There were tons of these on the bank of a creek. Never seen anything like this fishing creeks.

      My friend took me their and we weren't the only people there. But I think you have to be a resident and his grandparents live there so we were allowed to @Fishing_Wolf

    Hey guys. Getting a chronarch for Christmas and was wondering what a good rod is under 150 mostly using it for bass fishing but might take it inshore fishing every ...more once and a while

    1. SouthTXAngler 0

      As far as rods go, with the new shimano crucials being debuted at icast all the old models are being sold dirt cheap. Definitely give them a look...

    11. ReelGame Saucedo 0
      The brown one is a Castaway 6'8" ML that is a beast I have my Chronarch 200E7 paired with it
    12. Reel_Smooth 0
      I think he has it paired with the Chronarch for wading
    13. Reel_Smooth 0
      @ReelGame which one is the brown one you have?
    14. zach74 0
      Ok which rod of theirs...theres a few
    15. Reel_Smooth 0
      That would be 6'6- 6'10. I would try and keep it ML under 7'
    16. Reel_Smooth 0
      Get one mh, and a ml. If you like wading i would go with a 6'8 around there for free floating live bait, and soft plastics.
    17. zach74 0
      Which ones? @Reel_Smooth
    18. Reel_Smooth 0
      For that price i would say go get two different all star rods

    21. AllWaterLife 0
      The perfect all around rod IMO. By the way TFO=Temple Fork Outfitters. Just in case
    22. AllWaterLife 0
      You're looking at the kind of rod that I just got then. TFO 7' ML. It's a beast of a rod. Only for 99.95 too. Can throw any 1/2+ oz a mile and it's ...more light enough to throw topwater on.
    23. zach74 0
      Doing but the occasional red aswell

      @AllWaterLife trout is mainly what im

    26. AllWaterLife 0
      Flexy tip but a solid backbone
    27. AllWaterLife 0
      That's a specific deal then. Trout have very soft mouths so if you use a stiff rod, you'll rip the lure out during hookset. You could either go with a medium ...more rod or a rod that has a
    28. zach74 0
      reds and trout @AllWaterLife
    29. ReelGame Saucedo 0
      All Star has a variety of excellent rods
    30. AllWaterLife 0
      And if bass, it depends on what types of lures you'll usually be throwing.
    31. AllWaterLife 0
      That's a little more tricky. It depends on what you're chasing. Reds, trout, bass?

      I'd go with the Shimano, personally preference
    38. Reel_Smooth 0
      I love Abu, but i think that chronach is a monster of a reel for that price point. The only shimano reel i really want is a 200e7.

      I would go with Shimano, @zach74

      I've got 2 chronarch e6s and I love them. The new ci4 curado Is a thing of beauty and still in your price range... It all comes down to preference but for a ...more fact the chronarch holds up
    41. ReelGame Saucedo 0
      Buy the Shimano first if it ever gives you problems then take it back and try the Abu but go with the 200E7

      I have not used either, but both have good reputations. I don't own a single Abu reel, but I own more shimano reels than I care to admit. 😜
    45. AllWaterLife 0
      It's a good reel bro. Get the 200E7 and you will not be dissapointed.
    46. zach74 0
      Ok @AllWaterLife i also have another rod for bass fishing but would use it on occasion
    47. AllWaterLife 0
      th as butter. However, reeling in a bass feels like nothing so just know that it's at the high end of strength in low profile Baitcasters.
    48. AllWaterLife 0
      Both good reels, I can tell from experience though that 1: shimano has awesome customer service and 2: you won't need it for that reel. It is a beast. I've ...more dunked it once or twice and it is still smoo

    51. Ratfish 0
      Both are great reels. I have used the sub and heard good things about the shimano. I recently got a quantum smoke, I like it better than the STX, and it's cheaper!
