Hey Guys,
Went to Mountain Island on Monday to check it out and see if my line conditioner made any diff on my reels. First, the line conditioner seems to really help with flouracrbon on baitcasters. It almost seems to give it the slightest bit of memory which is good when just flipping a jig or making a long cast with a crank.The line stays tighter on the spool instead of springing off it. I like that. You guys were right about the braid. It really helps when I shoot it up under the docks. It didn't seem to help much on the mono. All in all, I think it's worth the purchase price. Anything that helps pevent tackle problems is a plus in my opinion.
I caught six bass and missed a couple more all were on the senko worm except one which bit a crank. I'm new to senkos over the last year. Idon't know what makes bass like em' but they really do. By the way, I've tried the look alikes and none I.ve tried so far semms to sink like the oringinal. What is it about that ugly, plain worm?


See Ya'll

Sounds like a good day on Mt.Island. Always glad to hear about the place I fish most often. I have always had pretty good luck with the senkos too but had more knock-offs than the original and still seem ok. I use straight worms alot. Finesse and trick worms. I`ve always just thought it was because they fall fast and "hop" fast. You see any yakkers out there on the wknd fishing, say hey. Probably me and the Team Hardcore boys. Thanks for the report.----------stu

Always glad to hear an MI report. Please keep em coming. Man when I lived in Harrisburg I was up there twice aweek. It's still my favorite lake and I'm an hour away now. I'm going next weekend but I'll probably catfish upriver or maybe even make the run up to the dam for some early stripes.

Good news for you stripes. Water level has been around full for a while now. Month or so. Didn`t get up north when it was down. Judging by all the extra real estate everywhere else, it might have been tough. Don`t have any striper info for MIL. Have been some caught on top of Wylie, from Mt. Holly launch up to the dam. Plenty of shad at the dam if you want bait.
