    Offshore Polaris Supreme Epic Bite 5-25-2021

    this^^^ I was on this trip and couldn't get bit on 80. I got 4 bites on 60. Only one bit through and another sawed off by someone at color. These fish are mean and agree 80 would be better, but just wasn't working for me either.

    Shimano Max Cuatro breaking

    Unfortunately I had the wrong rod and it was bottomed out. This is why the fight lasted so long. I am looking at the Phenix hax 780x2h to pair with now for a trip next week. Suggestions are welcome. I know I should be using a reel more suited to the task, but I am not a long range...

    Shimano Max Cuatro breaking

    I have 80lb on a Tac-12ii that bested a 160lb bft after a long fight. The maxcuatro and Tac12 held up with no issues. The extra capacity was very helpful.

    Best Las Vegas Hotel For Boat/PWC Parking?

    Sunset station has great parking. In Henderson, so closer to mead. Plenty of outside parking. I park the boat on top floor of structure that has electrical outlets to charge my trolling motor batteries. They also have security in bicycles patrolling all the time.

    They are taking 45 anglers most days. I thought 36 was pretty crowded especially on anchor.

    best 2-8# spinning reel

    I have always used the smaller reels like the 750/1000 size for ultra-light. I have switched to the Stradic 2500 for 4 to 6 lb. You get so much less line coil and twist it is amazing with the larger diameter spool. Yes, they are bigger, but imho for finesse bass fishing anyways, this size...

    guided bass fishing

    You won't be dissapointed in Art Berry. Our best 5 lmb on a trip about a month ago went in the high 30's. In the summer, my son and I caught 101 in one day with Art. The amount you will learn from him will be well worth the cost of the trip.
