Some new fishing products in 2009

In the never ending quest to catch the perfect fish at the perfect time, I'm trying some new things in 2009.

1) Shimano Saros 3000f 6.0:1 Gear ratio

Wore through my second Pflueger Supreme, waterproof drag on the Saros.

2)Lucky Craft Kelly J prop bait- Everything you could want in a smallmouth topwater lure.

3) Power Pro high visibilty yellow braid in 20lbs test. I'm a line watcher when working bottom. Figure I'll color the end with a green or brown sharpie, or maybe just leave it yellow and 'f' with the line vis crowd.

4)1 ounce spinnerbaits. I really want to dredge deep rootwads better for large Smallmouth. Gonna have to find a rod that can throw that heavy of a bait.

  1. I'm in the market for a a new stream smallmouth reel. I'm interested in your thoughts on the Saros vs the Supreme. Any others I should consider?

    Keep up the good work on the blog!
