I found some of this stuff at of all places a 7-11 lol They put it in gift bags as a filler. I paid two bucks a bag looks like I over paid. Great stuff it's foil so the color does not wash off. https://www.dollartree.com/Voila-Metalli.../index.pro  Got it today will start tying tomorrow.

Yah, me too.  Raw quality tuna is the only other fish that comes close to the ecstatic consumption experience.  We all here share a love of fishing, tackle crafting, and most of us eating fish, so I thought it was noteworthy to post this.

http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2017/...dnt-ac.cnn


Those who took the time to learn about Scott Pruitt's anti-environmental history were appalled that he was appointed head of the EPA and aren't surprised that he favored FOREIGN developers to possibly destroy a significant American resource with little benefit for US:
1.The mineral rights and the project are controlled by Canadian, British, Australian and Japanese corporations.
2.The mine may not provide significant tax revenue to the state. Due to Alaska's tax structure, oil and gas drilling returns over 20% of resource value to the state and municipalities, fishing returns 1% to 5%, and mining returns approximately 1.5%.

How special is Bristol Bay?
Bristol Bay is home to the world's largest salmon run. All five Eastern Pacific species spawn in the bay's freshwater tributaries. Commercial fisheries include the world's largest sockeye salmon fishery. The Kvijack River has the single largest red salmon run in the world.[16] The Kvijack drains from Lake Iliamna, which is downstream of the deposit. Along with herring and other fisheries, salmon account for nearly 75% of local jobs.[17]

  • supplies roughly 50% of the world’s commercial supply of wild sockeye salmon.

  • generates more than $480 million a year in revenue, and

  • employs 14,000 full and part-time workers.

Right, CNN is fake news cus our President says so.  Expect Fox News to enter the dialog at some point completely disregarding decades of scientific studies and touting "jobs" and developer Northern Dynasty's promises.

I use these a lot in early and late parts of the year for crappie and bass. Bubble gum color plastics worked best Saturday on really windy, cloudy day so made a few of those as well as some other colors with the walleye head in 1/16 and 3/32 with #2 sickles and Gamakatsus. Files on my phone are too big so I can't upload pics of the fish. Guess I need to start carrying the camera again.

Not sure why, but last several swaps have had poor participation. Sure its fun to tie for a swap and always exciting to receive the new jigs. Seems like swaps are dying on every site. Is it burnout or are people no longer interested. I know a lot of beginners are unwilling or afraid to try, but thats how we all started so please add your 2 cents to this discussion.

I new jig tote from gruv fishing was at I-cast . They have a website but the have not hit the market quit yet. They use a silicone material to grip jigs and have a magnetic closing lid. They have come out with a crankbait box that uses this technology. I'm unsure of pricing but they look like very functional boxes.

I have been doing alot of research on these jigs. Steve Stanford aka redman has a lot of history documented on these lures . However do to photobucket some of the documented photos are gone.
Has anybody heard from redman i know he went back to Iowa to help out family. I know there's members that are close friends . If anybody can give me advice on getting more historic information I would appreciate it. As being a amateur fishing historian I would like to compile the great story of Jim Stone Cap Kennedy Steve Stanford.  It is my ultimate goal to press a mold into aluminum and tye the patterns of the iowa Great Lakes.

  Flash Duck fun
Posted by: AllenOK - 09-10-2017, 03:40 PM - Forum: Fishing Success - Replies (4)

Last week, I was fishing live minnows both from a float and as a drop-shot, targeting Yellow Perch.  Ended up catching a few Crappie on the deep edges of the weedlines around the shore.  It wasn't until I got home that I put two and two together to come up with five, and realize the pattern.  Decided on my next time out, I would target those areas, but since the fish are scattered, I'd have to fish agressively, and decided to switch over to small crankbaits on one rod, and a tandem jig rig on the other.  I decided to use some Flash Ducks that I had tied up last year, as they're a close match to the minnows around here.

TODAY, my first day off since last weekend, I put my kayak in and gave it a shot.  No luck with any crankbaits, but the Flash Ducks are definitely a hit!  Going to have to fish those more often, and maybe tie some up in bigger sizes.

First fish of the day!  Sure was a surprise, as I was expecting Crappie and/or Yellow Bass.

   

A little while later, this one slurped a Flash Duck.

   

Man, those Smallies just don't give up!  This thing was pulling drag, pulling my pole under, etc.

Finally caught one of my target species:

   

Then finally, I caught this thing.  It sure wanted that jig!
