re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - bluemoons
I have a 10/12 on an 11wt. Haven't had it for very long, but it's been put through the ringer on fish that actually pull drag. I've had no problems with it and I love the reel. It's very smooth. It also clicks on the retrieve, unlike the NV-G series....

I’m not gonna make it this year. My friend and I fished it last year. It rained the whole time and we did more beer drinking than fishing. We had a good time though. ...

re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - bluemoons
Haha for sure. I like to use Rio’s 20lb fluoroflex tapered leaders for bones, but they’re really difficult to turn over casting into a head wind and they’re expensive af. It’s much cheaper to make your own. A 350yd spool of Berkley big game costs like $6 at Academy and lasts forever. That’s the othe...

[quote]While we are on redfish, what is the best general leader to use?[/quote] Depends on how anal you want to get with your leader and what you're fishing with. If you're fishing with poppers or anything topwater I'd suggest having at least the butt section made out of mono. Keeps the line floa...

re: Heading to Bimini Wednesday - bluemoons
Bonefishing is hard. Bonefishing DIY from a paddleboard in an area with pressured fish (and having never done it before) is harder. I've fished a few of the Bahamian islands for bones, but never Bimini. The fish on Bimini are likely fished pretty hard, particularly this time of year, because it's sm...

re: Flats Boats/limitations/advice needed - bluemoons
Majek's 22' extreme will not float in 9" of water. I've spent a whole lot of time fishing on both the 22' and the 25'. Great boats, but it needs every bit of a foot to float. I'd actually be surprised if the draft advertised by Majek themselves was less than a foot. If you're looking into flats b...

[quote]Do you ever go out and try to pole/sight fish alone with your Fury? I’ve been look at skiffs a lot lately to go out along the Texas coast, but I’d want to be able to fish the skinny marsh alone some days. [/quote] Very often. I don't pole much on my own, but I have before. The boat po...

re: Flats Boats/limitations/advice needed - bluemoons
You may find different opinions elsewhere, but heavier boats designed to eat chop that don't emphasize draft or poling ability would be considered flats boats. Specific models that come to mind would be the ECS Vantage & EVO, Hewes Redfisher, Maverick Master Angler, Maverick 18 HPX-V, Beavertail Lig...

[quote]Who all here has flats boats and what do you like/not like about them? [/quote] I have an East Cape Fury. I'd draw a distinction between a skiff and a flats boat, but kind of irrelevant to your question. [quote] What’s their limitations? Anybody freshwater fish out of them? [/quo...

re: Cold front this weekend/fertilizing yard - bluemoons
[quote]Do y’all think they’re calling for too much rain? Last I looked they were predicting 2” Saturday. [/quote] Is your yard flat? I'd be skeptical of applying a bunch of fertilizer before 2 inches of rain. Seems like it would run off. I'm no lawn expert though....

re: Xpress x23 bay - bluemoons
[quote]if youre looking into a 23 foot boat, 2 extra feet wont make a difference[/quote] This is false, particularly if you're fishing somewhere that's deep enough to hold established ground swell. A 25' can stay on top of ground swell that a 23' boat cannot. If you're fishing big water and can s...

[quote]Also, has anyone used Allen fly rods/reels? [/quote] Yes to both, but never owned a rod. I currently own one Allen Omega and sold another. They're great reels. Very smooth, startup inertia is nonexistent, and they're durable. I did have a drag go bad on the reel I still have, and for that...

re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - bluemoons
I have the fishpond carry on bag. I love it, but I also fly with fly rods at least twice a year. I used to use a tube, but the fishpond case has room for like 5 rods, reels, wading shoes (chuck Taylors), and a small fly box. ...
