Not losing Fish with right Gear and Technique

The thought that made me think of starting this interactive group was losing fish and why it happens . Many reasons I suppose but sometimes the gear itself doesn''t match up to the task and blaming yourself isn't always fair .  Also lengthy casts are great to cover water but perhaps harder to get a good hookset with that much line out to the fish ,especially with stretch in mono which I use . So figuring a max distance for casting that still is a safe distance from spooking fish but a better…See More

June Wacky Bass

"That is one of only 2 ways i fish for bass John.The wacky Senko and top water bass bugs.I caught 5 bass on 6 casts a week ago on the Senko.It seems such a goofy way to fish but it works and has accounted for a lot of bass for me the last few…"

Wish we had those beautiful Longears here in NJ Jim. You catch them in Illinois or do you have to go out of State?

Welcome aboard Jim. I have semi modern electronics and I was stunned when I could see all the finder would do I just didn't know about. Hoping we can learn our machines find out exactly what they can do get out on the water and use all the function we have to there fullest potential.

Have some cob floats if you want a couple. I haven't fished with the gall floats yet, you could test one out. Send address and I'll get them in the mail.

Hey Jim!

Thanks for the response. Sorry to hear you wont be able to tie up for the swap. But its good to have a job after all. Hope there isnt so much work that we don't hear from you.

My bet is there will be a New Year Swap, so standby. And, if you have the stuff for some more of those little Cosgrove Poppers of yours, I'd like to know about that.

Peace, brother.

Jim,

weve got a small fly swap going here at BBG and Id like you to join.

Its all detailed in a thread on the main forum.

Check it out!
