Daunte to Oakland

7 posts in this topic

Just read on yahoo that Daunte signed a one year deal with the Raiders.

He said that when he became a free agent he created a list of things he was looking for in a team he wanted to play for and the Raiders fit the criteria.

I bet the top two criteria were:

1. Team will actually sign me

2. Close to the water for "boat rides"

Good luck with that O line. DC won't make it out of camp.

Must not have been a tough list.

IM happy that he has a team to play for. The guy has talent, there is no doubt about that.

I will admit he has the physical skills to be a great NFL player he just doesn't have the mental side of it together. Once he gets flustered the game is over because you can't get his head back in the game.

      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.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
