First turkey

6 posts in this topic

Spent the weekend with one of my sons on his first successful turkey hunt. He ended up passing on 12 jakes before he could wait no longer and put a great shot on the 13th one. What a great hunt.

No, actually hunting at our cabin near Fergus. 4 of us applied up there and just the one son got drawn. My brothers were down at the farm this year though with one permit and got there bird on the second morning. Not as many birds this year down there...dawg gawn yotes mad.gif

      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.
