I went south to milliken today. I saw a report that they have 8 lbers in there so... I walked/waded around the entire lake. The fish were all very shy, the bluegills got skittish when I was 20 feet away. I saw alot of small/med bass but they had no interest in what I have to offer. A few giant crashes happened on top of the water, it seemed more like a musky or pike than bass to me but I dunno. That lake is only 3-9 feet deep and has a ton of fishing pressure but I will still be back- I should have gone to Heidecke though.
Somehow the reel I ordered a couple days ago showed up today from japan? My new shimano antares reel (japanese calais) is great. The reel is solid aluminum, no plastic. And I never backlashed even with new braid and all the brakes off but 1.
