why do they set the hook and reel 2ft above their head? They should get some good thorne bros rods.

I doubt the type of rod is the reason they were reeling in the fish like that. ;\)

Awsome video. Our group fished out of the same house a week after the video shoot. Must of gave them sore lips, cause fishing was slower then that for us. You still can't put a price tag on a "good time fishing!!"

Because I'm a clutz. Often times I have the drag set to light or some other deal going on. The rods that Troy Pike makes for me are perfect for the action I am trying to field, trouble is the rod is only as good as the angler holding it.

Most guys give me a hard time when they watch me fish, my open water hook-sets look like I am in sword fight! \:D

LOL! This might be the most quoted post I've seen in awhile. \:\)

Even with Thorne rods (thats primarily all I fish) I'm setting the hook until I hit the ceiling of the shack. Which is sometime quite the feat as I'm not that tall. \:\) On URL, I keep my drags set very loose. Just tight enough to get a good hookset, but just loose enough to let a big pike or walleye run when they want to right off the hookset. Since I fish a lot outside moving around, this is even more important as the cold, snow, and ice usually tighten (or lock) those reel drags up. I'm constantly testing and retesting the drag, sometimes on every drop to make sure it is working right. I've been schooled in the past on this and I don't want it to happen again. grin.gif

yeah thats funny how u set your drag in the warmth of your house or heated ice shack and its perfect...get outside in that cold weather for a little bit and she tightins right up and needs to be loosed.

i like to set the hook and reel in the same way when i'm jigging....seems like u keep a tighter line and loose less fish bringing them up the hole that way.

I just dont feel like I have control when my rod is above my head, I know whatever works for one isnt for everyone. I just wanted to see where the post would go with the rod thing.

Hooksets???

I'm 6'1". I start on my knees and it's a slam dunk jump come hookset time.

Yeah, I've received my share of comments on that. It's cool tho. I can take it. Say what ever you want to me as I pull a 14" crappie out of a hole. grin.gif Yeah, I'm listening.

Butch Fuertman also had a TV show on last weekend fishing Red with the owner of Northalnd Tackle, soft water though. Still good PR for the lake and businesses in the area. They caught lots of eyes and craps. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Johnny P. good video that you fellas put together.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
