Q: What is the best way to catch large trout in Lake Ponchartrain trolling by the bridges?
A: The best technique would be to troll with 18 lb lead core line followed by 24 inches of 25 lb test fluorocarbon. Then follow that up with your choice of a 1oz. Rat-L-Trap, preferably chrome with blue back, or a lipped Mirrolure, model #L52MR. Some find that putting a pink B2Squid as a trailer behind the Mirrolure or Rat-L-Trap is a good way to go. I say that 70% of my hook-ups come off using the B2Squid trailer.
Q: What are the best lenses to get in the Costa Del Mar sunglasses to use while inshore fishing?
A: Any color frame with 580 Green Mirror Lenses. The 580 Lenses have superior contrast, better definition, and enhance the colors so that you can actually see deeper into the water.
Q: What is the #1 selling baitcast reel for saltwater fishing?
A: Shimano Curado 200E7, mainly because of the 6 stainless steel ball bearings, high efficiency gearing, the dartanium drag, and its one piece aluminum body construction. These characteristics make this reel #1.
