Default Tackle thread

This is where you can talk about the hottest reels,rods,baits,boxes,etc!
i was waiting for someone to start something like this but i guess i will!
this can be freshwater/or saltwater.


Two question for the saltwater fishermen-

I have some big 1/2 3/8 spinner bait heads,i obviously dont catch bass on the calcasieu big enough to use those. Instead of putting them to waist i was going to use them for saltwater. Would those work?

Also, do freshwater baits like the rage tail shad, do any of yall ever use that for saltwater? Just basically wondering if anyone uses freshwater baits sometimes for Saltwater

My favorites bait is made by Mann's is the Tidewater Mid 1-Minus.

i was looking at the new citica's the other day, didn't like how the worm gear is open from the front of the reel looking back, the saltwater soaks it faster and breaks down the lube quicker IMO.

i never did, used lizards from time to time, most of the time i either used a finesse worm, a white spinnerbait or buzzbait, or a chartreuse or crawfish rattletrap or shallow diving crankbait.

i don't think saltwater will hurt the citica at all i'm just nit pickin

i heard falcon's coming out with a new super light rod for 100 bucks BTW

Shad rig under a cork. Same rig I used when I was a kid. I've tried all sorts of baits. From spoons to top waters, etc. I always go back to old faithful. Nothing catches fish like a shad rig under a cork. With bait for reds, without bait for specks. I'm sure there are plenty of guys who are better fishermen than I am, but my freezer don't lie.

HF.........You can catch Red fish on just about any bait that you use in freshwater.

Trout will hit many of the same lures, but spoons, spinner baits [buzz baits], rattle traps, and most of the topwater are some of the best.

I like the 14lb Cajun Line. I've drug old crab traps out of the water with crabs in it. Tough stuff.
