Fishing Tackle & Equipment Reviews / A Fun Review to Write!
« on: February 17, 2018, 05:05:40 PM »
I posted a new review last night over at

This one's for the Lew's Mach ll Speed Spool Baitcast Rod & Reel Combo.

Please check it out! I think you'll like it

A little less than 2 years ago, I sold all of my Curado baitcast reels and replaced them all with this reel: the Abu Garcia Pro Max 3.

So now that I've had the Pro Max 3 for awhile, I decided to write a review on them.

Was it a good reel to replace those expensive Curados with?

Fishing Tackle & Equipment Reviews / Tired of Leaky Weigh-In Bags?
« on: February 11, 2018, 08:03:12 PM »

I posted another review over at a couple days ago.

If you fish tournaments or use weigh-in bags at all, you'll want to rread this one!

I reviewed the Accu-Cull Weigh-In bag that I bought a little over a year ago. I tested it for over a year before writing the review.

Fishing Tackle & Equipment Reviews / KastKing Baitcasting Reel Review
« on: February 08, 2018, 11:42:01 AM »
Finished up another tackle test last night.

This one's pretty interesting, since it reviews a little-known brand of baitcasting reels.

I posted a new review over at this weekend.

I picked this combo up back in August and put it to the test that very same day in a club tourney.

Is it junk or good quality?

General Non-Fishing Chatter / Well, They Got This One Wrong!

I think the weather guessers missed this one by a long shot!

I went to bed last night expecting to get up this morning and see "up to an inch" of snow, only to wake up to 5 inches  :o

How can they be so far off with all of their technology??  ::)

Looks like the snowblower will get another workout today  (giggle)

General Non-Fishing Chatter / 18 - Three Days in a Row!
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:50:19 AM »
Three mornings in a row the temp has been 18. Some seriously consistent temps!!

With that said, it also means that the ice is still getting thicker, not thinner  :crying:

One thing's for sure. all of this ice will hang a number on heavy weeds and lay them down for a while  :yes:

Fishing Tackle & Equipment Reviews / Lew's Carbon Fire Rod
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:24:22 AM »
I picked up a new Lew's Carbon Fire rod at Dick's Sporting Goods a few weeks ago. I had never seen them before, but when I picked it up the first thing I noticed was that it felt like a feather in my hand. Super light!

It's a 6' 10" medium action that I will be playing with, to see what suits it best with regard to lures, techniques, etc. Right now I'm thinking it might make a good Senko rod, for the 5 and 6 inch baits fished weightless. Won't know for sure until I actually get on the water with it.

Once I get to spend dome time actually using it, I will post an update here to give my feedback.

The Hawg Forum / Heat Wave Coming!
« on: January 06, 2018, 02:27:42 PM »
Well, after being battered by extreme cold, a potential new record low temperature tonight, and a major Nor' Easter, it looks like we'll be catching a break next week!

Not sure if it's a January thaw, or just a general change in the weather trends. But, either way, next week is looking like 30s and 40s all week! They're even hinting at a slight possibility of breaking the 50 degree mark on Friday  :o

Not sure yet how much of it will actually happen, but at least it gives us a glimmer of hope of getting some weather that's a bit more "normal".

Personally, I'm looking forward to it.  :yes:

Ice Conditions / Ice Conditions - 2017-2018

I drove by Chapman Pond in Westerly today and noticed that the lake had about 60-70% ice cover  :o

I didn't think anything would be freezing up yet with the wind we've been having, especially open water. If the wind hadn't blown these last 36 hours, it would have been frozen from shore to shore.

Small areas, like swamps and other sheltered spots are 100% frozen now.

Winter is definitely here now  :yes: :crying:
