re: Best Cheaper Fish Finder - The Last Coco
[quote]ANyone here ever messed with Raymarine ? [/quote] I really like the dragonfly 4 pro that I have. The transducer likes to be moving I will warn you, which on a boat shouldn't be as big of a problem as it is on my kayak. Otheriwse, screen clarity, and read outs from the transducer are great....

re: What's Ya'lls opinion on eating Bass ? - The Last Coco
[quote] One of the best bass lakes in the world and want to keep it that way.[/quote] In order to keep it that way, people need to catch and eat some of the fish. That's why the limits are established how they are. Pure catch and release fishing is not always (is it ever?) a good way to manage a b...

re: Pistol Grip/Short Handle Rod Suggestions For A Stubborn Old-Timer - The Last Coco
[quote] I'm not dropping good money on any rod under 7 ft for that nice of a reel.[/quote] That seems pretty ridiculous. Get him what he wants. And why is rod length so important? If I'm flipping, then sure I want a longer rod, but for throwing spinnerbaits, square bills, rattle traps, and most tx ...

re: What would you pay for this boat? - The Last Coco
For a flats boat, it looks awesome. Love the layout. However, I wouldn't wanna cross deep open water in it. As fish alluded to, you'd take a beating and be left with a wet arse on anything other than a calm day. As far as price, new I'd think in the 20-25k range....

re: Need some OB help with the elusive sacrapearch - The Last Coco
[quote]I assume that they are about to enter spawn being that they were mostly all caught on lines near the bank.[/quote] Not necessarily. Sac au lait spawn at water temps warmer than bass. Depending on where you're located, they could be spawning, but that would probably be far south La....

re: Cedar Waxwings - The Last Coco

re: Need a new light-action spinning rod. Any recs? - The Last Coco
On spinning reels, Nanofil (and maybe Gliss - I'll have to see) is the only way to go. Waaay better castability, no stretch, better capacity, just overall a superior product. If you're concerned about visibility, tip it with fluoro but the idea of using it for your mainline makes me cringe. When I w...

re: Need a new light-action spinning rod. Any recs? - The Last Coco
[quote]I use the same rod for bluegill, white bass, white perch, spotted bass fishing in wooded creeks, trout. Stuff like that, but not dialed in on any specific species. [/quote] Amateur. Lol. I have 3 different types of sac au lait rods alone. Not to mention bluegill, creek bass rods, etc... I'm ...

re: Need a new light-action spinning rod. Any recs? - The Last Coco
[quote]I'm like Coco, I like a shorter rod. I saw there is a 5' and 5'6" in that all star lineup you linked. I may need to go find and look at one of those. [/quote] The 5'6" L 4-8lb felt really nice. I settled on the 6' with the same specs but the 5'6" was very tempting. It could definitely hand...

re: Need a new light-action spinning rod. Any recs? - The Last Coco
[quote]You know how bad those little jigs spin during the cast? That led me to start using barrel swivels to fluoro. I tie nano and gliss using a uni knot but i run the line through the hole twice before starting the knot. No problems.[/quote] That makes sense. Might go to that....

re: Need a new light-action spinning rod. Any recs? - The Last Coco
[quote]Gliss is really good. If you find it small enough, get it.[/quote] I spooled it with 8lb gliss. This stuff is insane. The 8lb gliss is the same thickness as 4lb nanofil. I'm guessing you don't worry about leaders? Not sure how I would even tie one to this thin of line....

re: Need a new light-action spinning rod. Any recs? - The Last Coco
[quote]Hey, I went to Academy today. Nanofil is on sale, and they actually had lots of 6lb.[/quote] Academy up here doesn't even carry Nanofil!? They have this new line called "gliss" that looks intriguing. It's a unifilament like nanofil and made by ardent. Might try that out. The rod you sent ...

re: Passenger Tires vs Light Truck Tires: what's the difference? - The Last Coco
Tougher with a higher payload rating normally on the LTs. Passenger tires will be more pliable with a smoother ride and have a lower payload rating. If you tow with any regularity, get the LTs....

re: RedFish Line Setup? - The Last Coco
[quote] I grew up bass fishing so I'm partial to a leader. Are there any negatives to using one?[/quote] One more place for a mistake. Your knot is the weakest link between you and the fish, less knots mean less opportunity to break the line. On bass, it's more imprant to use a leader, especially ...

re: RedFish Line Setup? - The Last Coco
[quote]Yeah I wasn't a fan of the slick. Didn't notice any difference.[/quote] On heavier lines the difference is immediately apparent, soooo much more supple, but maybe it isn't a big deal on 30# and smaller. Admittedly I've only used 40# and higher. From a long term outlook though, I like suf...
