    Nice catch, did you try out my tip? Just wondering if it works in a river or not.

    No but I have looked into them and saw a "pro" using them the other day on a video. The current 7 knots per rod is already excessive not sure I need much more on my line!

    That picture is offensive to Leasburg. If he were still around, I'd have to delete this thread to keep the hurt feelings at bay. :D

    I never bug somebody to take me fishing because I do it all the time myself, but I'm thinking I may have to just invite myself along with you one of these days when I'm not busy chasing river bass. My PB blue is still only like 21 or 22#. Plus, a mess of eater blues sounds glorious!
     
  15. He's around, called me today.:eek:

    I was referring to MWT. He's always posting over on Bookface.

    Bring it! You've helped me a ton so it's the least I could do! I think I'm taking a couple first timers from here later this week. :wave:
    Lots of 8-15lb eaters to be had out there!
