Myron Curry and his son team up to catch 38.6lb Blue Cat out of Richland Chamber Lake, Texas.
Caught on the Breakaway HDX 13ft rod and Diawa Saltist 5000
with fifty-pound test braid and a 80lb mono shock leader. A size 8/0 hook did the catching.
This rod and real pulled the big Blue out the stumps with ease.
Thanks Myron for the report and great pictures. Regards
Brenda with a nice Red. Caught using the GDX bait cast reel Daiwa 20 SHA
April produced some pretty solid Red Fish on PINS. Most were caught on Pomp rigs the DCD3 rigs
fished at long distance. Suck outs and pinches in the second gut produced the best
Red and Whiting caught on DCD3 Fishbites and Shrimp
Quality-eating shrimp tipped with a Fishbite was the bait of choice. Finger Mullet have started to show up but I advise to take some bait with you to be sure. Weed has been rare this year compared to resent years with rumors of our weed beds washing out into the Atlantic on a current change. Been trying some of Daiwa’s Saltist braid on the Daiwa Saltist Reels matched with our spinning rods. (LDX. GDX and the Omega) These new braids allow you to use far smaller reels making the feel and balance of rods far better than when you had massive 6000 size reels loaded with mono. The Daiwa Saltist reel matched with any of the above Breakaway rods is an awesome set up. The balance of these combo’s and the lightweight makes slinging lures a pleasure.
Nice Black Drum caught on the Omega 10ft 6in and Daiwa Saltist 4500 loaded with 40b braid.
