    Cheap Daiwa Tatulas

    Ran into that earlier this year on a quantum spinning reel. Hell of a deal on eBay and the seller had zero feedback. Took a shot and I was wrong. Seller was a fraud. Had to go through the 2 week process with eBay to file the cancellation and eBay refunded my money. First time I was ever burned on eBay but it was my fault. I should've known better. If it looks too good to be true it probably is.

    A word about Kayaks

    Love my Kayak... My only complaint is I wish I could use it more often! Haven't had it on LOZ but its perfect on the Smallmouth Streams!
  3. I've actually been a big fan of the Dogma. Closest replacement I've been able to find for the original Reaction Innovations Vixen in terms of profile, action, and sound. I'm a big fan of all 6th Sense products! Haven't tried the Splashback yet. Didn't like the Ima Skimmer the first few times I threw it but its been several years and I need to give them another try. Have another buddy who likes them as well and I witnessed him lose a giant river smallie on one!

    Crank Wraps?

    I believe the Crank Wrap adhesive will hold up. There's a video on facebook where one of them takes a screwdriver to it and scratches the hell out of it and it didn't looked damaged at all. That being said they do not appear to offer a chrome color option. Their patterns are realistic baitfish patterns not basic color options like the manufacturers offer stock. That's their niche. They did come out with some of the old school wart patterns that aren't realistic, so maybe its something they would consider but who knows.

    Father's Day Morning Quickie

    Met up with @Hog Wally and @Smalliebigs for a quick trip this morning. On the water at daybreak and off by the time it started getting hot. We caught 2 giants right off the bat and several solid fish throughout the morning. Hog Wally lost a 3rd giant but there was nothing he could do. That big smallie hit a topwater at the end of a long cast in current on the other side of a log. She came clear out of the water and spit the bait after a few seconds. Were also able to take a few Spots out of the river system which is always a plus. Awesome way to spend a Father's Day morning. Thank you Aaron for taking us out and put us around quality fish!... Was great to get together! Happy Father's Day everyone... Hope you were able to spend it on the water!

    Personal Best Smallie

    WOW! That is a freak of a smallie! Congratulations! I don't think there is any denying that is a 5 lb fish!

    Wiggle Warts

    Wiggle Warts

    The top two may be worth $25+... Can't tell their condition though. The bottom two are more like painters ($10-$15) to most guys. I own quite a few pre-rep warts but all of mine have been custom painted. I only ever buy painters and I personally never spend more than $10 on them. There are a lot of good alternatives to the pre-rap warts on the market today. But there are a lot of hardcore wiggle wart guys out there. Go to Facebook and search for "pre rapala wiggle wart buy and sell". It is a group of guys who buy, sell, and fish pre-rap warts. They could probably give you a better estimate on what they are worth. Good luck I'll try to post a pic of my "wart" box later

    Webb Elite Results

    I totally agree GSPHUNTER and redshad. The top guys on LOZ have a way of always figuring them out. It's pretty darn impressive (at least to me). I ended up crappie fishing Saturday since my father-in-law enjoys it more and we had my 5 year old out with us for part of the day. Cleaned 20 decent ones. Made for a fun weekend! The bass probably would've had me scratching my head anyway...

    Webb Elite Results

    I also think a majority of the Webb Elite guys are mainly from the White River Chain area. Some of the names are common LOZ anglers but I don't think most are. The AiA and Alhonna results were much better and they draw the more common LOZ tournament anglers.
  12. I've posted this in the past but posting again to see if anyone new sees it... I'm looking for one of the older Shimano Crucial Drop Shot Spinning Rods. It's a 6'8" M Action rod with the cork split grip. Not the current model and not the black eva foam model. The one before that (probably 2006-2008 model). If anyone has one they are willing to sell, please let me know! Thanks, Paul

    Crappie were easy. Bass, not cooperating!

    We are at the 25 mm as well. Is this where your house is? Or were you just fishing the area?

    First time fishing LOTO

    You will be there during the peak of the spawn. If water conditions are relatively clear, sight fishing will be a possibility. You'll be able to catch fish on just about anything. Fan-casting spawning areas with a Carolina-Rig, pitching behind docks with a Hi-Def Craw or Beaver, Topwater behind docks, skipping a senko around wood and behind docks. Lots of options! Have fun!

    Gizzard shad and PB Largemouth

    That is a giant! Congrats Jim! And in a STL County Park is just unreal! Beautiful jigs as well!
