  1. Crazy question but did you email them. I broke my mojo in the same spot last year first cast of the year. I’ll never leave home without a back up again. They were very good about it. I explained the issue I was the second owner. I shipped it to them and I believe they sent me a new rod for $50. May want to go that route first. Good luck
  2. Hopefully this doesn’t go through.

OLR Bill Analysis sSB 109 AN ACT CONCERNING THE DESIGNATION OF CERTAIN STATE REFUGES FOR WILDLIFE. SUMMARY This bill designates portions of the Quinnipiac and Mill rivers in New Haven as state wildlife refuges. In doing so, it prohibits hunting, trapping, fishing, or trespassing in these areas. A violator is subject to a fine of up to $100 (CGS § 26-107). Specifically, the bill establishes as a state wildlife refuge the portion of the (1) Quinnipiac River in New Haven extending from the I-95 bridge to the I-91 bridge and (2) Mill River in New Haven extending from the I-95 bridge to the I-91 bridge. EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2018 BACKGROUND State Wildlife Refuge By law and regulation, hunting, trapping, fishing, and trespassing are prohibited in any state wildlife refuge (CGS § 26-107 and Conn. Agencies Regs. § 26-66-1(h)). Additionally, the law prohibits hunting, killing, pursuing, or trapping wildlife in a lane, road, or highway adjacent to a state wildlife refuge. Being in a state wildlife refuge or closed area with a firearm, bow and arrow, trap, snare, net, or dog is prima facie evidence of a violation. By law, the energy and environmental protection commissioner, or his designee, may hunt, kill, or trap fox, skunk, raccoon, wildcat, mink, weasel, hawk, owl, or other predatory bird or animal in a state wildlife refuge or closed area (CGS § 26-107).

  4. Sorry bout that I knew you were joking should have made myself clearer.
  5. That would be some drift. If the DEEP wanted to hand out tickets for fishing without a license and/or bag a few poachers WH has a few good areas to do this. I was told they caught a few poachers with 6 shorts last week. If you call most of the time they will come if they aren’t stretched out too far away.
  6. Thanks
  7. Can you give some more specs. Is it full 11’ length or has it been cut. Reel seat from center to the butt, guides and is this a newer blank? thanks Mark
  8. I’ve never had to fish a old glass rod but own a few that need a redo. I would love to throw some lures with one, I’ve used old penns with mono. I think I’d be ok fishing old gear. How does one catch a fish using a cell phone? Haha
  9. Hell I know that rock I’ll be there soon. Lol
  10. You know Scoob you get what you pay for when it comes to everything. The lower end bags I’m sure are nice bags. But I believe one buys what they can afford/justify. I only recommend what I use, I think my bag choice has done me well over the years. I think a 2 tube GU bag is about 155.00 no frills.
  11. I just picked up a Gear Up 3 tube. What a nice bag, there 2 tube looks nice and they one with a front bouch on it also. Have a 4 tube from them and it’s held up very well. Prices aren’t bad compared to the higher end customs.
  12. Gary I would like to thank you for this thread. I personally never used a tin lure, heard of them but never seen one first hand. Your insight on them was a great read. I always threw kastmasters and hopkins, then Tim S did a tutorial on how to a make a mold for tin lures. Found it very interesting and gave it a shot. I made my lures completely from scratch this past winter, I looked at a lot of CG and PJ tin pics, came up with my own but similar designs. Hopefully things warm up and I will get out soon to try them out on fish, not just a open cold winter beach.
  13. Aqua shield grease looks very interesting, it looks almost to tacky but thinning it would help that I assume. Two questions I have for you, I thought I read on a thread here that it will “seal” water entry points on reels?? Have you tested this grease in colder climates, like throwing it in a fridge for a day or so? If so did it get thicker or not? I should add that my newest grease combo for the last few years is super lube, white lithium grease and synthetic gear oil mixed with a paddle drill bit with no tip.
  14. I would ask Lou T about ODM rep here, he seems to chime in a lot on there products.
