  1. I'm wondering if anyone is willing to share any tricks for cold weather tricks to share. I'm new to it and am looking for a little help. I've figured out that braided line doesn't work that great in the cold. And I also carry a few rods so I can rotate as needed to melt the ice out of the guides.

  5. I've heard from others on the "Rainy night jerk bait limits thread" that ChapStick works well and I've tried it and it seems to hold true. Just a light application yo the guides evey once in a while.
