RAID Japan "Diffuser", RAID Japan "King Heavy", Daiwa Steez "Stratofortress"

1.  I like the "Diffuser" BUT haven't brought one over the gunnel yet.  It may also be the one for O.S.P. maximum cranks.  It's got a crankin' rod feel, more parabolic.

2.  The "King Heavy" has a few fish under it's belt.

3.  The Daiwa "Stratofortress".  Has the widest lure weight and line weight range BUT if it doesn't do well as a frog rod, it's gonna be up for sale.  The length, @ 6'8" don't cut it for me as a distance casting rod.

6’8” is also a great close quarter pitchin length as well as target casting stick, IMO. Don’t give up on it just yet if it doesn’t wow you for frog duties. It could very well be part of a magic equation for something else. Let’s revisit this after you spend some time froggin with it and have a better view of characteristics it has under load, etc. 🤙🏼

That's the problem, my primary lake has very little shoreline cover.  It's like extremely shallow then drops off into 10', 20', 30', 40' depth.  Also quite clear, not gin clear but not much color.  The lake was impounded in 1981, so much of the shoreline forest is young, as trees go.

That's just scratching the surface.  I would say the bottom composition is clay, not sand, rock or soil and I don't think it's very fertile.

More to follow

@blitzdr any docks?

 

Very few at this point.  I would say less than 50 on a 1000 acre lake.  I'll be hitting the lake at the end of the week, I'll take a few pix.
