Ive only tried a bait caster twice..birds nest within 5 minutes both times.
I cannot fish very well, I like to eat fish though fried catfish with some fries mmmmmmmm that's what the title reminds me of.
Same here. Think I'll try again this spring.
You control the line with your thumb on the spool, and adjust the spool speed to the weight of what your throwing. A little practice and it will amaze you the accuracy you can have with a baitcaster.
I use to get bird nests like crazy, switched to braid and no problem. I'm usually fishing heavy cover anyways with frogs and pitching big ass jigs into muck. Need 70lb line to rip em out.
You want the lure to slowly go down when you release the spool. Not super fast but not to slow, you can adjust it with one of the knobs on the side. You gotta readjust with every lure though because obviously they're different weights.
It takes practice. If you're doing it right You'll only cast about 5 feet the first few hours. Keep your thumb on the line
Set the spool brakes to every other, or two opposing. Then it’s just a matter of adjusting the line tension knob as described above.
I only rock bait casters unless i absolutely cannot. Like for surf fishing, banking it for sturgeon etc.
When you get really good, you can turn off all the spool brakes, And only deal with the line tension. Can cast the farthest this way when needed.
My SX came today. I'll have 3 new rods and 2 new reels to brake in this spring.
Folks I'm going to be bankrupt if I don't get to go fishing soon.
try this place for soft baits, a few on sale. the Rojas worms work great for me
Weather warmed up a bit today but it's all rain. Got the poles in the truck though. Next nice day I'm on it.
Wild stream in Arkansas - see anything?
Little creek next to the hatchery - only kids & handicapped allowed to fish there.
Barbless fly only & most of these fish are huge (release mandatory).
Oh yeah!!! That looks so good right now.
I think I have to fish tomorrow now.
Been fly fishing and tying flies since I was 11. Got my guide license at 15. Lived and fished from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island. Has been as much a part of my life as cannabis, and I give it just as much credit for saving my life. Not so much first hand medical, but by keeping me grounded and out of trouble due to all the time I spent alone in the middle of nowhere on some river. Cannabis and fly fishing have not only saved my life. They have been my life for 27 years now.
Now to go see what I have for pictures lol
One of my camping spots on the kalum river northen BC. Was a great week of steelhead fishing .
A rainbow I caught and kept for someone else way back when I was 18. Caught on Christmas eve.
My favorite spot in the whole world. I will leave it un named other then to say it has the hardest fighting Atlantic Salmon I have ever caught.
Couldn't agree more. Nice pics man
Ice fishing on One Island lake BC
Atlantic salmon from back in 96 lol
Thanks for the link. At $2 a pack I had to order a couple packs.
IKR? they kind of get you on the shipping but you can't beat the worms for "wacky" rigging. i must have 10 lbs of them here lol
