    I would really like to know this too. To me it is probably in our heads. I just can't stand to not put a leader on braid, but again no real data either way on if it makes a difference. The biggest thing to me with braid, mono, and floro is find the right fall rate, stretch, and durability you need for the situation. Sometimes this is personal preference. For instance, I fish 1/8 oz shakey head a bunch. I like 8lb floro for this when fishing 20 or deeper. The reason for this is the bait gets to the bottom much quicker and maintains bottom contact better than braid. However when skipping deep docks l, I love the fall rate of braid, the ability to come off the spool, and the toughness around metal on docks. Another example, is I use mono when spoon fishing. I like to use a mh or h rod to get a pop when jerking the spoon. However, I want the stretch of mono when I set the hook. Also, the mono comes off the spool good, resist abrasion around docks, and is cheap to replace when twisted. I have zero issues with braid leaders breaking so I always have one on. Like to have the nerve to try it without it. Bo has it figured out and the use of braid is spot on when fishing as deep as he does. I like the braids with gore fibers, such as suffix 832. They fall much better and dont have any drag in the guides or water. I generally use 30 or 40 lb braid in the 832 because of the smaller diameter of comparative braids.

    Bo, Do you use a leader or straight braid.?
  3. Absolutely, the MDC stocks elk, worries about bear population, etc...all while bass fishing probably has the biggest economic impact to our state of any of our sports. Some may argue this, but the other sports (including all hunting) can't produce the shear tax impact of bass fishing. I know some people are anti-tournaments, but just look at the economic impact and people it involves. If the MDC would wake up and we as sportsmen support our cause, maybe real changes can be made. Also, tournament timing, culling rules, weight and release etc, would help as well.
  4. They have all the money they need to do stock fish with no license increase. I am 100% not a fan of MDC and they have an exorbitant amount of budget they throw away every year on, in my mind, worthless efforts that are not in the overall good of the public. Just request an annual budget from the MDC and judge for yourself. They are a rogue agency with large coffers that go unchecked by the people I am not saying they are bad people or are hiding anything. I just don't agree with there overall management of wildlife and use of taxpayer's money.

    Detailing?

    I have literally done 100's of boats and thousands of car interiors. If you have older carpet, do NOT use a power washer. Power washers can harm your carpet very quickly. Here are my steps: For the worst spots: Use undiluted simple green and carpet cleaner on the bad spots. Scrub these with a stiff tire brush and very little water. Wipe up the water or you can vaccume the water as you do it. Continue to add water and scrub these spots until the water is clear. Then apply a carpet cleaner (like resolve heavy traffic) and scrub in if you like with a brush over th entire boat. Then wash the cleaner out with a gentle stream of water until all the soap is gone. To finish ( and most importantly), vaccume the boat with wet dry vac. Do this until you remove all the water you can with the vaccume. On the last pass with the vaccume, hold it down firm and go against the grain of the carpet. This allows the carpet to fully dry. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.

    Winchester Model 70

    I am not sure of age, but is was shot 5 times to sight in scope and cleaned and put up. It is the basic "ranger" model without all the frills. It has the same action and trigger as any post 64 winchester. It is priced right at 375 with rings and no tax. A base model today with rings and tax will push $550 to $600 new. It will also shoot with any of the $1500 dollar ones that are collectors items, just not as fancy.

    Winchester Model 70

    I bought this from a guy that was having money issues. It is 100% perfect and I am not trying to make any money. It would make a great deer rifle.

    Thursday fishing

    Good luck, the lake is very, very tough right now. Just keep moving and you will run into some. They are scattered and they have been very, very pressured.

    Lowrance HDs 5

    I have a lowrance hds 5 in perfect shape. I have the mount and a trolling motor transducer. I also have a skimmer transducer that is brand new. It needs a power cord ($30). I will sale for 150 with trolling motor ducer or 170 with skimmer. I took it off my boat when it had 30 hours on it and somebody might as well use it. It will link and do everything with the other hds units. Brett 417 230 0343

    Lowrance Settings

    Since switching to fish reveal, I have had a few issues dialing in my lowrance units. I use an elite ti, which runs the same as any gen 2 touch and carbon units. I am using the dsi transducer. what are your preferred setting for drop shotting? Frequency (200 or chirp?) DI. frequency (455 or 800) Sensitivity Color Line Ping speed Scroll speed Water Clarity Noise rejection
