took the ballistic out again today, I matched it up with Winch and what a difference. I got even more distance. cast like a dream. Is nice to finally get a rod and reel and line matched up and what it perform. not going to change this setup.
Fished the Daiwa Aird today, 7’6” telescopic H Fast, the rod performed good with a 1 oz spinnerbait on it. tomorrow I am putting a Koppers frog on it and see how well it does with that. So far happy with the rod. if it does well with the frog it will be my frog rod from now on. tomorrow I will fish the Lew’s tourney pro speed spool on a new rod with new line and a king Daddy frog. Rod is Cabela’s Tourney trail, 7’8” H MF, if it does well with the king Daddy on it, it will be my A-rig rod. rated for 1-4 oz. Not really trying to catch fish, just trying out new gear, rods, reels and line.
i’ll go back with a stick bait to try and catch fish. it’s all i’m going to take one spinning rod and rig it t-rigged with a 1/4 oz pegged sinker, then i’ll try and wacky rig it where I can fish it without getting hung in the weeds. trying to find another technique I can catch fish other that the frog. also popper or spook when the clouds come in or buzzbaits.
