  1. I just can't see the need for a super high speed retrieve, myself. As far as I'm concerned, anything over 6:1 is overkill. I find it easier to reel faster with a slower retrieve than it is to slow down with a fast retrieve. I guess I'm old school, but that's the way I feel about gear ratios.

  2. Mark…..I'd love to see the set-ups you'd use in Florida (minus frog and punching set-ups)…..I just moved to FL from up North, and it's so confusing down here to know when to use braid and when not to and when to use what action rods…..thanks again

  3. Awsome!

    I been throwing fluro, thinking bout changing to braid.

    And for sum reason, I find myself bending out the hooks, stock hooks seem to always be bent in to much.

    Next rig setup, (DROP-SHOT)………

    there's a certian way to get that hook tied on that keeps it away from the main line and to stay up-rite in certian position.

    All of which I forgot.

  4. Do a setup based on the season. Also explain water clarity compare vs cloudy days. The season would help I think as the yr goes on. Good video man. Had fun with frogs this weekend in Kansas with farm pond fish for bass. They were knocking the hell out of it!!

  5. I use a 7'4" Heavy Favorite Balance rod. Its also a modfast tip. Works great. I am a little quick on the pull so the modfast helps the fish get it a little better before i give it the hammer.

  6. Iโ€™m a bigger dude at 6โ€™2 and I love 7โ€™2 rod donโ€™t understand the people that frog with 7โ€™6โ€ plus rods

  7. This is awesome Mark can't wait to see how you work the frog. Would like to see your setup on the chatter bait. ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆƒ๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿฆ†

  8. Love this new series idea man!!!! I actually have a favorite 7'3" heavy rod as my froggin set-up with a 8 speed lews reel. Great video and looking forward to more set-up videos next how about swimbaits
