    Hey, Tm send me your email if you do not mind. Thanks H
  4. H sounds like you are well equipped. We have added three UL (4-10lbs)rods to our aresenal,it is a blast to hook any size fish on these sticks,but I am wondering how it will go with a five plus pounder.With hooks I like singles for solid hookups and easier releases. What gets me are the days when half or more hookups come loose.I found a way to beat this, just plan to release everything.That way it only hurts a little to lose one or twenty.

    TM, I have two Okuma line counters and two AbuGarcia . I am very lite drag with the awareness of soft mouths . Always try to keep the fish from jumping ( can't stop it sometime}. Rod is a 6'-6" texas popping stick. Yeah I never have heard of one either. Rod is very flexible and fights fish well.I have been at Jocassee alot and have caught plenty of fish. I have lost 2 out of 10 which is not that bad. Just wanted to make sure the trebles would not help.THanks H
  6. Harpoon we use singles or a double hook set up,haven't used trebles.The silver heatherns are bad to pull off,I've read landing 50% of your hookups is about average.What rod and reel setup are you using?

    TM, I have been trying to fine tune my Kokanee lures on Jocassee and am noticing alot of lost fish do to the two hook set up on my K rigs. Have you tied trebles on instead? I caught a bow the last time I wen't to Nat . It was salmon pink. This leads me to believe the silver beast I had on the wee k prior was a Kok.I lost it witha double hook rig. Just wondering about the treble.Thanks H

    Hey TM, I checked out your bear lake on the net and noticed it has walleye. I have a lake in SC that has a number of walleye in it. Just wanted to know if you have had luck with the spring run? I went last year and saw them on the bottom but could not get them to bite. thanks BG
