Posted by: JUNGLEJIM1 - 06-08-2018, 11:33 AM - Forum: Jig Pics / Recipes - Replies (2)

I'm still catching with these so I'm still tying them. 1/64 now on #10 lil nasty or #12 sickle hooks. Think the little sickles hook better but both have been doing the job on redear, gills, bass, catfish and carp if they wouldn't break me off.

  Hooks for Vibrating Blade Baits ie Silver Buddy
Posted by: Kdog - 06-05-2018, 08:25 PM - Forum: JigCraft.com - Replies (4)

I've been messing with Blade baits for a long time and have a quandry.  Would love some input on this one.

Although I prefer using the Mustad 7790 open shank treble hook,  or VMC 9607BZ.  I occasionally get ticked off and use split rings and a more conventional treble or a short shank treble to reduce fowling.  

I know we have a few here that make and use blade baits. Please weigh in with pros and cons about the various methods.  I make my lures just so I dont whine about loosing them.  They often get snagged on rocks logs trees etc and rather than spending countless hours unsnagging, I break off and move on.  I just bought an ultra minnow mold because come november and december i'm thinking those 1oz, 1 1/4oz and 1 1/2 oz make be just the ticket during high water and increased water flow.  Before I finish a couple hundred would really love some biased input on the best hook system for blade baits

Posted by: Bucho - 06-01-2018, 06:05 AM - Forum: Fishing Success - Replies (9)

This year I couldn`t wait and opened the season (June 1th) at 0:00h. Those are cm. Wink  Got another one that was a bit smaller. Nice opening. Things will get more hairy later into the summer when the fry overwhelmes the fish so I make the most out of June.

Hey Guy's 
What sealing top coat doesn't discolor chartreuse powder paint? When I dot some eyes and seal them with Sally Hanson's, the eyes discolor and chartreuse turns a funky off green/yellowish.
Thanks for any help.

  Dusted Off Fly Rod
Posted by: papaperch - 05-24-2018, 05:21 PM - Forum: Fishing Success - Replies (6)

Haven't used me old buggy whip in a decade or so. Noticed quite a lot of surface activity on previous trip to a local pond. So I packed my little 4 weight a handfull of bluegill baits.

I forgot how much pure fun gills can be with the flea rod. It was pure murder and the strikes were downright vicious. Just a little yellow popper with a royal coachman as a dropper fly ties about four inches back . None of the gills exceeded 8 inches and even caught one that looked like he was an egg last year. But probably caught and released well over a 100. I released all of them as I have plenty of fish to eat.

Took the time to snap a pic of two of them one on the dropper and one on the popper. It was just non-stop fun. Was casting toward some trees that line the pond. It was a little breezy and the fish were making an easy living on the bugs being blown in or trying to hatch. I was surprised how quick my casting skill returned to me.  The gills just bent the h out of that little rod and for awhile I was 12 years old again.

  Gotta luv the barter
Posted by: hookup - 05-24-2018, 11:46 AM - Forum: JigCraft.com - Replies (4)

Got a buddy who's a plumber 

Had a small leak under the sink & decided to call him instead of throwing my back out figuring it out then fixing it

We usually be fishing, hunting, motorcycles, guns when he's here and last time I gave him a couple dozen jigs as a tip

The leak turned into a bit more work than we though, so after he spent two hours and was done he asked if I had any more of those jigs - I said sure and gave him some 

When I asked him how much I owe him, he was reluctant to take any money at first, but said $75.  I gave him a dozen more jigs

Gotta luv the barter system

Found a super deal on eBay for the Canadian release.  A visual feast on blu ray plays fine in the USA.  Seller has more...
https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_...y&_sacat=0
Bought 4 Canadian movies from this seller, and all were excellent and bargain priced.  Combined shipping discount sealed the deal.

Reading reviews of the movie since many said the book was better so bought a used copy of the book on eBay too.

Has anyone here been tying mop jigs or flies?

On one lake here guys have been hammering the trout on mop flies under an indicator. I'll bet they would work as well as a tiny jig.

  Jig Nymph (float-fly)
Posted by: AtticaFish - 05-09-2018, 12:41 AM - Forum: Jig Pics / Recipes - Replies (9)

Got a bit of round about inspiration from a recent post here and decided to create some nymph jigs.  I know darn well they catch bluegill and crappie around  here so fixed a few up in various sizes.  Think i have here 1/64, 1/32, & 1/16. These are all lead free mixed media alloy, so just a hair lighter than actual head size.   I fished for bass tonight at my hometown Attica reservoir #1 for LM Bass and was amazed by the number of panfish i saw.  Gonna give these a try tomorrow night if all goes as planned.
