Went to that big Fishing store that @cree recommended, so happy I forgot my wallet :o

I bought a cheap baitcaster ("cheap" it was still like $61 for the combo) at walmart and don't get the hype, maybe because the good reel costs 3x more than that combo :o

Caught two this afternoon, monsters obviously :mamoru:
Congrats man


It's a real high fishing when you catch something. I used to go on the Sacramento and American rivers with my dad to catch stripers back in the day. Although it was always stinky sardines fresh bait. Biggest I ever got was an 20-something lb striper which was a real workout to bring in.

Haven't gone fishing in years but it makes me think about my dad a lot.

First, you have to decide what you are fishing for.
Then, you buy your gear for that specific type of fish.

I'm fishing for bass now, I ran out of the senkos that were working really well for me though :wtc:

The pumpkin colored ones with black fleck worked really well, the pumpkin ones with colorful fleck and little high vis yellow tails haven't worked for shit :hmm:

maybe it's because I'm bad but it seemed super logical that I'd want my dominant hand casting/feeling for bites, my left hand is basically dead weight, it can do the job of going in circles
i dont get it. with spin reals and fly fishing, you dont switch hands. idk why ppl do it with bait casters
