Good ultra-light line?

Hey guys I'm new here just signed up tonight. I've been lookin at this site for a while now and love readin about other peoples techniques.But anyway I have a question about line.I use spinning reels and have been havin a problem with birdsnesting and spoolin loosely and it just drives me crazy,and I was just wonderin what kind of line y'all use.I don't know if I'll be able to prevent it by just changin line but if I could at least minimize it that would be awesome.

Tim Overbaugh and his taxidermy might be the best in the U.S.

I've dedicated the entire front page of BigBluegill to our very kind, generous and talented friend, Tim Overbaugh.

 

Big Bluegill is blessed to have a number of very talented taxidermists that frequent the site.  There are also dozens of folks who are extremely talented in creating videos, catching fish, taking photos, etc.

 

But Tim Overbaugh's work is unparalleled. 

 

Tim Overbaugh has made the very generous offer that if members of Big Bluegill…

Stuck on Porcupine Quill Floats

Porcupine Floats?!

Since the trade routes into Africa brought products from around the globe, old-time tackle companies in the 1700s or 1800s fashioned some bite indicators out of everything that wasn't tied down. A popular imported material for companies making floats was the porcupine quill out of Africa. 

 

These…

All Made Ready!

Well Ive finally done it- Ive scouted out a handful of fishing spots and have amassed enough  panfish tackle that even a packrat like me can feel comfortable. I catch myself wringing my hands and cackling over the pile my goodies like some overgrown leprechaun. So the game is on.

 

I look around at all my junk... er, treasures... and it dawns on me that I need to dump a lot of this stuff. It started last year when we moved to this house and I had to actually TAKE all my crap…

Spring Break 80 Degree Ice Fishing......well not quite

Hey Everyone!

Just got back from a 2 day trip to Lake of The Ozarks here in Missouri. Took My son Tyler out for a short "Spring Break" fishing trip.

 

Started out yesterday afternoon fishing below the dam using my jig and float technique, in an effort to catch some White Bass, but they have not showed up yet! Only managed one. But TY and I caught a couple nice Bass.

 

Spent the night at the cabin and fished the boat docks for Crappie. Water was pretty…

New place

 Ok guys (and girls) need a little input. My new lake house has a nice big deck on the back of the house.

I’m going to redo the steel with metal studs so I can add paneling. Build brick flower bed and repaint support. My question is the deck it self. I need to stain it, seal it or something.

What can I put down that will look good and last a long time. Remember…

The First Bait of Spring

I have placed my first Spring bait order so it is OFFICIAL. Fishing is right around the corner. To prepare, I will take out my smaller tying bag with lines and small hooks and start tying some leaders.

 

Storing a small wallet of fine leaders in the fishing bag saves hours on the bank. Since I can't get what I want - I make my own snells and store them in a hook wallet (picture rubber pads for the hooks and some plastic bumps to put the snell loops on in a thin, plastic…

You Have Never Fished Ultralight

There is Ultralight and ( Zen ) There is Ultralight Fishing

 

No one reading this has ever fished ultralight. Ultralight would be the ability to hook a single bit of algae or just one hydra to a hook to catch a newly hatched fish,…

Revolution - How Do You Bobber Fish?

I am still seeking some help from everyone out there.

 

Please check out the older post invite. All this month I will be wanting volunteers to describe their setups and share how they fish with live bait.

 

I will be donating some prizes to the cause and someone will win some cool shirts and prizes for sharing. There are no wrong answers, just want REGULAR fishing setups - how you fish with the standard gear.

 

Participants will be asked to log what…
