Decker Lake (Walter E Long) Frog Fishing

Fishing frogs for bass.

Our favorite lake and the best way to fish it.

Decker Lake is a great frog lake. The best time to fish it is in mid-summer and in the middle of the day. Throw hollow-body frogs.

The hotter and the calmer it is outside, the better the frog fishing.

Other times of the year, early or late is better.

Spinning Reel Product Review

How do you choose a spinning reel? Some of the things I like are looks, number of bearings, how smooth it feels when you turn the handle and of course, price. For my needs, I don't think I need to spend more than $100.

Take a look at the this new reel. The company is Piscifun. The model is Honor 2000.

First impressions:

This reel looks really sharp! It matches my Kistler Zbone Rod really well. The reel turns so smoothly. I put a small drop of oil on the shaft. Put it on a Kistler Spinning Rod and took it fishing. I wish I could say I caught a lot of fish on it, but only caught a couple on a tough day of fishing.

I loaded it with 14-pound Nanofil. I used an eighth-ounce Charlie Brewer Slider head and a 4-inch Berkley Powerbait Worm. I was was surprised how far I could cast with the reel/rod and line combo.

Would I buy another? Yes, most definitely.

You can find these reels on Amazon.
