How do they like the E-Tech? My bf has the 150 and has had nothing but problems with it. Been in for warranty twice, still sounds like its missing, and won't start sometimes - Evinrude told him to lift it out of the water to start it when that happens but he's going to burn through water pumps like crazy doing that. He's been pushing for a replacement but so far no go.

I haven't done much more than fish for blue gill and catfish. The only trick I know is that if you're getting nibbles but no bites... reel in, spit on the worm or beemoth, and recast. Idk what it is but I swear it works.

I caught an 18lb 5 oz flat head catfish in Yuma, AZ. Be jealous....

A couple of days before, I got a 5lb 11oz large mouth. Am I bragging? Absolutely!

I'm only going to give one piece of advice from mmy experience:
Spincasters rule!
I'm using an older Abu right now, and I wouldn't trade it for anything! Except maybe a new Abu.

Abu garcia is a great brand......and "baitcasters" are the popular pick (even though I do not personally own any!)

Took today off with a co-worker to get after some gills and we found them, they kept us busy for a few hours. Id say all in all we caught 60 or so between the two of us, kept enough for a fish fry tonight. I also caught a nice smally too, that was awesome to catch on ultralight tackle!
