Don't need a lock....most are out on weekend pass !!
Jack, I guess Flats has no idea where the Ohio River runs....all along the KY border. Oh, well....
Sorry, I just get tackle to use, 2 7000C4 & 4 CT700....no Conquests, no TE 700's I have 6 Quantum Big Cat rods( 2 MH & 4 H) A few St Croix rods too. I'd like to have all St Croix musky rods for them. The Big Cats are real nice, can't knock them. I'm also going to unload a few Quantum big iron reels soon & 2 6500CL3 reels-I have to give my fishing buddies 1st shot at them.
I actually use the drags on the reels too......
Jack, I saw dips new reels on Sunday, that 7500C3 chrome looks cool too !! It's good to have a few backup combos for when you get snagged. We fish some snag holes where it's a given you are going to lose 3 out of 4 of your rigs. So it saves you alot of time re-tieing. You can keep fishing and then tie later.
You're more than welcome to try any of my tackle when we chase the blues ! If I was given the opportunity to try some first, I would've made some better picks in the beginning. I relied on some mis-information I had read, but then , those guys fish a different style. Big river & big fish, better have a good drag & know how to use it. Back it off as the fish gets closer to the boat too, so they won't pull loose when the line's short & no stretch. I lost some real beaut's last fall, won't happen for the same reason again !!
Hey, bet you can't wait to ride in that new Carolina Skiff....looks like someone is jumping on the boat bandwagon ??
Hahaha......man, I'm really laughing now !! ( First the carp bandwagon, now the Boat bandwagon- get it?? Always following my lead
!! Watch out stripers & walleyes !!)
