  1. "You know him very well. He is knowledgeable. He is self taught. Just the type who should be sharing info" But you still begrudge him for having a yootoob channel? You sir are a bigger sweetheart than I am. And I am proudly a HUGE sweetheart.

  3. I only watch little bumpkin channels like "m hood" and "fish your way". As soon as someone totes a brand, I walk.
  4. I can't find big size chinlocks or the bigger sizes of deizal minnows. Looked all year too. I understand that Zman no longer uses Mustad hooks and went with VMC. I consider VMC junk and am looking for different alternatives.
  5. Ain't that the truth!
  6. A Daiwa Tatula SV TW on a old Shimano Crucial Medium Moderate action rod. 12# mono.
  7. Hmm..... W/M can't recall the name. He was "emotionally handicapped". Did lawn service. Jumped in a brackish canal behind a home he mowed. Off Cornelius Blvd. In Port Charlotte, Charlotte County FL. Perhaps it is not considered by croc since it was not witnessed. A salty was the only crocodilian found in the canal system by our dive team and FWC. I didn't read all the reports as I was not the primary investigator. It was determined by the M.E. that the death was caused by croc. It's also the only sighting of a American Croc in our county. Not long after, one was confirmed in Tampa Bay.
  8. I got into custom painted lures and custom made rods after watching "Enjoy Fishing Channel" and Angler Saito on youtube. Spent more than any Sage I could've wanted and that's not counting the bfs parts for my shelf full of 2500c's.
  9. I was happy to leave the truck life for SUV's. Found my gear was finally secure. Besides every snowbird thought the beds of my trucks were their own personal garbage can.
  10. I guess it depends on what kind of fight you like. I don't care about jumps. I love a hard running brute. Flathead catfish gets my vote.
  11. As a visitor you are right to be aware of them. My county has had two deaths from gators, well one was a saltwater croc....... But honestly fish on. Once a gator hones in on you having a topwater, the best thing to do is go back to bottom baits. They won't stop pestering you. The smaller they are the worse it is. Like somebody mentioned, don't fear them to the point you quit until they're 8ft.
  12. Bait finesse baitcasting may just be as expensive as fly fishing! Oh what a rabbit hole that is. When my wife sees me roaming online Japanese tackle shops, she pulls out divorce lawyer business cards!
  13. I've used a baitcaster for over 40 years, I love the feel of a quality reel. I caught my PB Snook, 41" one my first cast on water, after a month at the school yard struggling to teach myself. The fight of that fish hooked me. It was hand to hand combat. Other fishing cannot compare to the feel of the fight. A PB on that first cast was a total fluke I've never bettered. I love that when fly fishing I can have in a small wallet, what a whole tackle box would be needed to hold. I love that I make the fly not some factory in China. I hate fly line management issues. I love less injury to the fish usually. I love that a quality reel will last my lifetime.
  14. I fish Florida's saltwater almost every day of the year. For 4 years my Solitude 4 has never had a glitch with the benefit of no annoying ratcheting noise. Tough finish and impervious to corrosion in my estimation.
  15. Wow that looks great. Now I know what to do with my closet full of pistol cases once potato comes to confiscate my freedom. They look store bought and beautiful!
