The Hawg Forum / Buzzbait Bass
« on: September 22, 2019, 11:37:36 AM »
There's been a few posts of Buzzbait bass lately and i got in on the fun also.

Got this 6lb 5oz beauty on a recent trip to Maine in the belgrade area, also caught some nice ones on big swimbaits. I love the color of the bass in Maine  :thumbup:

Looks interesting in that the head doesn't rotate.  Garmin coming out with one also!

Fishing Tackle & Equipment Reviews / Shimano SLX
« on: June 16, 2019, 12:55:48 PM »

Been seeing great reviews on the new SLX reels from Shimano and wanted to try one. Found them on sale at Sportsman Warehouse and bought one.

When i first took it out of the box i wasn't sure i was going to keep it. It felt a little tight, it was smooth just not free spinning. Ergonomics felt great in my hand, i have 30 days to return it so i figured i might as well try it.

Spooled 12lb P-Line on it and was really impressed how well this thing cast. felt really smooth reeling the bait in. I've been using it for over two weeks now mostly fishing swim jigs and spinnerbaits and i think it's my new favorite reel. I wish they had the high speed model on sale but can't find any anywhere under MSRP.  I will be buying another  :thumbup:

The Hawg Forum / Spawn???

I was at Patchaug yesterday and found a lot of empty beds. No small males guarding the beds and certainly no females around!

Do you think they already spawned? Water temps were 62 - 64 in the morning, sure it really shot up in the afternoon.

For those who didn't hear about these boats Vexus is a new company started by ex Ranger employees and Forest Wood. They launched the aluminum line first at the classic. Fiberglass models will be announced this fall.  Looks like a nice boat for the first ones!
