  Early season panfish
Posted by: AtticaFish - 04-08-2019, 12:12 AM - Forum: Fishing Success - Replies (3)

Ate an early dinner and went over to a local upground reservoir close to home to try and catch a mixed bag. Put 2 dozen fillets in the freezer tonight. Smile Started with a small feather ice jig and waxworm combo pegged 2 foot below my float. I could see the the gills sitting up high in the water from up on top the pump house railing. Could have easily kept 30 but let loose half of them. As it got dark, I switched over to walleye gear but got skunked on those. After taking a walk though, I did spot a bunch of glowing eyes (some big 20+" fish easily) that looked to be actively spawning. 8 to 10 fish in a small 5' radius area. Going to head back up there this week after dark to focus on the walleye ONLY!  Fun evening with some warm temps finally.

All of these anf a bunch are going to a young man who gave me 2 deer tails to de-bone and cure out. Some nice tail material so going to pay him back with a pile of finished multi species jigs.

Small 1/16 and 1/32 weights.....

Last is a 3/16. Have a couple of these in different color combos to give home but figgered 1/8's might be his choice.

I still love my tatsu Fluorocarbon but is expensive.

Decided to look at other offerings OMG everyone is on a fluorocarbon kick. and it ranges in price from 19.00 to 190.00 for 1000yds.  Braid is not much different price is not as spread out. keeping those thoughts in mind
what line is everyone using this year or which lines have you had the best luck with.  Personal experience shows line less than 0.008" in dia is almost a necessity which means 6# test and occasionally 8#

Ive tried a few fluorocarbons that had terrible knot strength, some rated test is over or under actual just not enough money or time to test all of them

Was looking around the web for trim pieces of grizzly bear and found a place that does rugging of hides. The lady said she had a hide that a guy wanted redone but the hide was falling apart so he said keep it!! but I didn't want that much and she said well if you pay shipping I'll send you some in an envelope!! WELL!!! I had a box delivered last Friday and she sent me the whole thing!!! I bagged up 4 different shades in gallon bags and had to use my XL Super zip bags for the rest!!!

  Anyone Fishing yet, Anyone catching???
Posted by: Kdog - 03-15-2019, 08:31 PM - Forum: JigCraft.com - Replies (18)

Sites been unusually recently so I figgure everyone is A fishing or B tying a bunch of new inspired creations.\
Been fishing the GMR so nothing edible or IMO not edible.
I went 6x in January caught 2 smallies and 6 saugeye
February was a bit more productive got out 5x but caught 14 total saugeye, 3 crappie, 5 smallies
Been out 4x this month but too much water catching fish though.  Saugeye must of gotten  lockjaw or washed away.  Only 1 so for this month.  Smallies are quite active must love the rushing water.  7 so far including 2, 3 1/2 pounders on the same trip. And 3 channel cats and a carp.  Think I caught a huge shovel head but never got it close enough to find out.  Been using  a variety of Jigs 1/32 to 1/4 some with plastics some with real crawlers, some tied.  Nothing seems to be better at this point although I will say you gotta go fishing to catch a fish.  I think catching right now is mostly luck, but its nice to get out and give it a whirl,.

Best colors so far, Watermelom. orange, greem pumkin , and hot pink.  Big smallies were on white with brown bucktails

Hi fellows - I know that Ledhed has a great Thomas Vise collection and I thought you guys would be interested in seeing this unusual Thomas model. It has a semi-circular green painted stem and an aluminum clamp that both swivels and locks on indents as well as allows you to attach the stem to the forward facing clamp plate allowing for a vertical rather than horizontal clamping mechanism.

I made these yesterday since we got iced up and I couldn't go on my morning walk. These are 1/4 oz. and were tied using 4/0 Trokar jig hooks using craft hair, saddle hackle with flash. Hope to catch some hybrid stripers once we get some warmer weather.
