My BFS Journey so far

 My BFS Journey so far...Over the past few years, I've developed a deep passion for trophy panfish angling. Initially, it was a challenge to transition from using baitcasting setups for bass to focusing on catching trophy pan fishing. Ultra-light to micro-light spinning setups were now the norm. The smaller the bait I used, the more trophy master angler fish I was able to tag. It soon became clear that using smaller baits was the key to success in my pursuit of trophies.…So, I decided to shelve the baitcasting setups altogether and instead put together microlight spinning rigs. These rigs allowed me to cast tiny jigs and slip float systems over long distances. And let me tell you, the effort paid off! The trophies started pouring in. It turns out that lighter and smaller setups were the way to go. Not only did I catch more panfish trophies, but I also started reeling in larger gamefish like largemouth and smallmouth bass, as well as channel cats.…As I continued to explore different…See More

"“Simple”still catches a lot of panfish Slip…..this is a bait I would throw under a float and immediately be productive……North Carolina panfish can attest to liking this……."

My experiences previously on this lake are considerable boat traffic from pleasure as well as a lot of…

Hope you don't mind I had a gentleman Marvin Morgan contact me about his Lowrance chirp finder. He like most other are confused trying to read the manual and understand it. I gave him your name since your the best versed on the subject I don't think you'll mind but if you do I apologize..

I just got my Federal today.  Hopefully, this weekend, I will wet a line.  Not sure where, or for what, but hopefully.....

Slip-I use a  bead between the bottom of my slip floats to cushion the blow it receives  from banging against the split shot when hook setting and/or  popping the float . Those plastic float stems don't split since I've done that .
