  4. Hey is this from a book? Id love to read on if so
  5. Thanks Ollie, do you have a reasoning/theory for not painting?
  6. Ha! Thanks Wrench, ive watched a lot of videos but never tried one myself. I think ill make some more!
  7. Here's my first attempt at a clouser. #4 hook, small eyes and purple over white with some flash. Gimme some feedback!!
  8. Hello and happy New Years gang, I got back to MN for some nice crappie action thru the ice last week and now im getting the itch to start prepping for the whites this spring. For me that starts with whipping up some new jigs and flies. Ive got some materials to try clousers this year and i also plan on doing some maribou and bucktail jigs so a few questions for the fly and jig tie-ers: 1. What hook and eye size seem to work best for clousers for whites? I bought some size 4 hooks and medium eyes that look about right but tell me if you've had better luck going bigger or smaller. 2. What style/brand of jigs are the best for tying bucktail and maribou jigs?..i think i just used some generic ones from acadamy that did pretty well last year but open to some new ideas. 3. Lastly, I noticed while ice fishing on Christmas day that we had to fish a jigging spoon with a rattle or we wouldnt get bit..no rattle=no bites. Im assuming a rattle might help in the dirty water of the little sac at times as well. Have any of you guys had luck finding a jig with rattles that doesnt get in the way of tying? Thanks in advance for the help. Also, i know its a long ways off but I'm tentatively planning a trip to the little sac on the Friday before Easter. If anyone wants to meet up or invite me on their boat for a few hours i could probably throw in a half dozen jigs in exchange😄 Good luck in 2020!
  9. That is a beautiful boat! Wish i was in the market for one..perfect fish and ski for the family..and a Champion to boot!
  10. Is the fun over with? Whats the latest the whites stay in the rivers?
  11. Man those are some beautiful smallies! What a blast...any advice on where to target some from the shore?? No boat..
  12. Decided to take a hike up around the Frisco trail and find a new spot or two. Found a nice little pool and started catching a few whites...and then...it happened. The strike was hard, the fish was big, and staying deep...pulled it up to the surface to find a 24"-26" walleye that appeared to be tired out. I loosened the drag quite a bit and was just about to beach this beast and then two head shakes and she was gone..spit the bucktail jig id just made and that was that. Upon inspection id tied it on an older leadhead and the barb was pretty much worn to nothing...lesson learned A few casts later i lost that bucktail in a tree..it was the only one i had so i went home to tie some more..brown and purple over white with some flash.. Ended up with about 10 whites and the one that got away..
  13. Do the whites typically bite better in the afternoons? Ive had limited luck in the early mornings amd better luck midday..never really had a chance to give it a shot in the afternoon
  14. Hmmm...maybe one of those fly fisherman will be me..
  15. Phew! You were right Bologna...i walked it today and its a hike for sure. Cool area though. Fishes more like trout water with riffles, eddies, and pools. I will definitely have to get back up there with the flyrod next time. When i got up there i got two nice ones back to back but that was it...got em both on my homemade 1/16th oz. white hair jigs..they hit pretty aggressive so i was surprised that i couldnt convince a few more. Tried around Taylor before and after making the hike upriver, but no luck
