    Great stuff there. Sometimes just feeling "lucky" will keep you focused when others might fade. How are you connecting your 65# braid to your 130# Fluoro?

    Btw, with the amount and quality of fish you catch, you should look into a VacMaster vacuum sealer. A bit pricey up front, but well worth it in my opinion. They don't break down, the bags a very cheap compared to Foodsaver and the vacuum is much better than any others I have seen.

    Not sure if it's gay or not but your rods and reels made my penis tingle a little bit...

    Great video and info. I might have to get a Stella for popper casting. Shimano has a number of models other than the Stella. Any advice on a second choice if you had to make one for less money (i.e. twin power)? Thanks!

    Haha, very true. I think one spinning rod set up cost more than my civic.

    Absolutely rather be lucky than good. we have all been there too many times.

    I use the fg knot as well as the improved albright if thats the right name for it.

    I have a p66 and a 1kw transducer but for whatever reason, i like the p66 better which is the one shown to be in use in the videos. If you see water temp in the 30's in my videos , that means the 1kw is in use . I had both so had the p66 as back up but i tend to use that one more.

    all my electronics are old. Its first gen lowrance. I always wanted to upgrade but so far it still works fine.

    Hope that helps.
