Estimating fish sizes from pictures

13 August 2014 - 12:22 AM

Hey guys, in light of the interesting thread about this I thought we could play a bit of a game.  Let's post up some pictures of fish we've measured/weighed and get some guesses going before revealing the actual measurements.  



I'll start it off with some pictures from this weekend, can I get some estimates?  I have pictures of these fish on a ruler as well as weights (you'll have to trust me on the weights though).  


Fish #1 Largemouth:




Fish #2 Smallmouth:






I'd like others to join in too!  Hopefully together we can get more familiar with our favorite finned friends.  

Pfleuger Supreme drag knob needed replacement after 4 or 5 months of use

13 September 2013 - 11:15 AM

How impressed am I with Pfleuger's $100 Supreme offering? 

Not very much. 

After about 5 months of use, the drag knob starting turning along with the spool... tightening as fish took any drag. I lost one or two fish before I figured out what was going on. 

This was not a cleanliness issue, the actual drag knob began scraping away at the top of the spool. 

The drag knob was replaced under warranty, but I'm not looking forward to the day this happens again... who knows which fish this is going to cost me. 

$100 can't buy dependable gear anymore... and Pfleuger was a brand I respected.
