  1. I agree with you Iain.  I personally find fishing with three rods too much to deal with.  When the bite is on,  two rods is plenty. This is especially true when fishing with a friend or partner.  6 lines in the water in a fairly small area is just a recipe for trouble in my opinion.  Compounding the problem is river fishing..... Still waters are a little more forgiving.  (in my opinion).  Also, I personally have never really noticed my catch rate to significantly increase when I did try to fish 3 rods. The only thing that increased was my anxiety level....  lol.        Either way....   Good Luck to all.




  2. I would say that depends where you are fishing and what size fish you are targeting...     A big river with lots of debris and structure would be a place I would use braid. Also, if the potential to land a big fish ( 25-30lbs) is present, I would go with braid too.   If you are fishing "clean" lakes or ponds for medium size fish, mono is good. Also, in the cold weather Braid does freeze up faster than mono so be aware of that too.     Just my opinion.....  






  3. Historically, here in New England,  the first few weeks in October are terrific for Big fish and good numbers.  But the end does come quickly. By the end of October and into early November

    the cooperative fish that were around just two weeks prior are no longer as easy to catch.  (regardless of a steady baiting campaign)  That is not to say you cannot catch them into November but you should expect the change and fewer fish.   This is just a general statement and just My opinion but if you notice, the weights on the leaderboard have not changed much

    over the last few weeks.  



  4. I too, have ground up dry dog food in the processor or blender and used it as a base mix for hand rolled boilies.  You can add an egg or two to help bind  and any other ingredients you desire.

    The possibilities are endless but like Ken, I would say no better than other simpler baits.  " Everything works at some point"    lol  Good luck.

    Had a blast on the bank side today with my good buddy Todd Richer. As a was giving a hand landing his mid 30s beauty, I hooked into an lower 30 gem. Good times. 


    Good Times Indeed!!    The Best of Times in Fact!!!  This is just one of many awesome sessions we had this spring, although many were not as  productive as this day, they were all memorable.    " Let the Good Times Roll! "
