5 posts in this topic

wow what a weekend i went out on stella on sunday night around 7ish or so and that was a big mistake. the waterskiers and all the big boats were out there and i swear they were trying to see how close they could get to you. after almost getting hit 4 times out there i said screw it and left but it wasnt much fun

They weren't any better on Belle either. After lunchtime someone left the gates open and they all came out. Felt like I was getting attacked by mosquitoes with all the buzzing going around. Hard to not expect that on a lake like Belle though on a sunny day.

Was out at Belle for the weekend too. Saw all the boat traffic yesterday and decided to stay ashore.

if they get too close call the sherrif or CO. No need for that $@!* on the lakes. Most probably had some beer on board and in their system, which under state law would be a dwi. Dont get me wrong, I too like to have fun on the lake whether it be fishing or waterskiing or jet skiing, but there are limits and laws to follow. Upsetting fisherman seems to be a way of getting these people off. If it ever got bad to where i thought i would get hit, I would put on the old 6 oz sinker and start casting at them when they come by. It would only take one thump for them to drive somewhere else.

yeah it was rediculas out there i mean when they got the whole lake but they got to right next to you right where the good fishing is too. im sure they all had been drinking cause i seen there coolers and and they would go to shore and then come back out so im sure they had been drinking.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.
