Re: Minn Kota Ultrex

This is going to be the first mod on the next boat especially since i don't have the space for poles/talons on the back due to garage parking space limitations! I've got a question for anyone that's had it in shallow water but how shallow can you be to use the spot lock feature and not spook fish s...

Re: Minn Kota Ultrex

Buy one! It is a monumental game changer. And no matter how much people tell you how awesome it is and how much it can improve your fishing experience - it will never approach what you experience the first time you hit spot lock on a windy day to retie or fish an offshore spot. Then once you get fam...

Re: WWBT Shasta !!! Wow !!!

Kudos to WWBT, Jason Bubier and his family, and the City of Redding. It is hard to imagine a near 200 boat field running any smoother. Blastoff was right at the announced time, lines moved rapidly, and all of the staff members were helpful, friendly and efficient. Redding is close enough to the ramp...

Re: High-End Spinnerbaits, Swimbaits head with no more superglue and more... VIDEO

The spinnerbaits, jigs, swim heads and nails are all phenomenal. Gary is an absolute stickler for details on the stuff he fishes and each of these products were spawned by what he saw as a need in his 35 year fishing career. The keepers on the jigs and swimmer heads are unbelievable - even on the ve...

Oroville Fish Getting Smaller Year After Year 2018 vs. 2017 vs. 2016 WWBT Team Results

Large fields and a 7 fish limit in early January each of the last three years give us the opportunity to really see what has been going on at Oroville. Some of these numbers are remarkably telling. Notice that each of the last two years 11% of the filed blanked. Arguably it was a tiny bit harder to ...

Re: Spoon Rod

Tough to give you a blanket answer to this as there are many different spoon sizes and weights. For anything 1.25 ounces or lighter, I really, really like the Dobyns 763 Champion. Is a perfect rod for that. For 1.5 to 1.75 oz I use the Dobyns 733 Champion (it is a little more stout but still has a s...

Re: Dobyns 744 vs 735 vs others

The Dobyns 735 Champion is light and powerful with a surprisingly sensitive tip. It is a GREAT frog rod for sure. You can absolutely double up its use as a jig and Texas Rig rod. It may be a bit much for weightless Senkos but you certainly could use it in a pinch for 6 or 7 inch (i.e. heavier) Senko...
