    Too Light Line

    Line weight depends on the trout's size and teeth. Learned my lesson trying to lip lakers.

    Even though I use ElaZtech, I still have a luv/hate relationship with it. I call days like that Cinderella sessions. Most of them come during prespawn.

    (inside joke for RS'rs) Never leave fish to find fish. More on that later. Met up with a buddy at 7am at the take out. Sprinkled most of the drive to the river so was wondering what the weather's plans for us were. Good news is the rain stopped when I got to the take out so started getting...

    Victory Jig Hooks

    Tried the VMC 9147 BN and they were more fragile than any other hooks I've fished with. Even lost a few medium sized smallies. I use to love the VMC barbarians but Barlows only sells them from 3/0 and up. I have a theory. If I get a bad pour, I'll melt the lead off the hook and re-pour using...

    I saw Charlie Case invent the Jacks worm at a fishing rodeo. He took one of his stick baits, heated it in the middle with a bic lighters, then pulled slowly. The tapered tail had so much action in the water it became an instant hit

    Brachish

    Modifying soft plastics or using the originals in different ways - photos that were missing

    I used to save all my old broken up used soft plastics then give them away to some entrepreneurial kid to make baits. Allot of his creations were done with a Bic lighter and a set of tweezers

    Brachish

    Can't reall call this salt but close Shad come from salt water and run up the fresh water creeks to spawn. When you are in the middle of a school spawning, fishing gets crazy. Had an early taste of the shad season on the east coast yesterday. Size was great. Most over 15". We boated 30...

    Pearl white's a good color to have in the tackle box. So is something green and something with blue. Walleye were made for the fillet knife. imho - a pan-sized walleye is the best.
