    Spinnerbait Question

    So do you slide the red collar up to keep it on the spinnerbait hook?

    Spinnerbait Question

    Trailer hooks, how do you guys attach and keep them on your spinnerbaits? I have cut a small piece of tubing a 1/4 inch or so and placed it at a 90 deg to the hook eye for years. I saw on a package of hooks that they suggested putting the tubing over the eye and then piercing the tubing. So how do the experts do it?

    Not What I Expected

    It is a sad day when we loose the fury family that means so much to us. I feel your pain. Hardest thing I have ever had to do, but all the while knowing it was for the best for the companion I so dearly loved.

    Release boats?

    If the area is depleted of quality fish then why are tournament guys going there, they must be catching fish that will weight. I also want to know if fish wont repopulate an area or make there way back why do we spend money for GPS and mark locations, because we caught quality fish and go back to catch quality fish again .

    Release boats?

    Direct quotes from 176Champ, google search. At Lake Martin, Alabama (2005), bass moved an average of 5 miles from the release site after 10 weeks. After 2 months, no fish were in close proximity to the release site, and all fish tracked over 3 months returned to within the same general area of capture. In general, it appears that if largemouth bass are released after tournaments in good shape, only short-term stockpiling occurs at release sites, as most fish disperse from release sites within 2-3 months and up to 40% of these fish may return to original capture sites. Although fish displaced up to 13 miles have demonstrated homing abilities, few make it back to original areas if displaced over 6 miles. Most importantly, a study we conducted at Sam Rayburn in 2003-2004 indicates that population-level impacts of tournament-related bass relocation and concentration are likely low. No question, stockpiling at release sites does occur, as we estimated that 31,050 bass were transported to weigh-in sites during the one-year study. But, we also estimated that tournament anglers transport only 5% of the total largemouth bass population of legal-length (31,050 of the 621,000 available bass) in one year. Simply put, only 1 out of 20 bass are subjected to relocation and potential crowding at release sites per year. Bass can and do work there way " HOME"

    Wrench is spot on, I am a die hard Mercury guy always have been. Chevrolet is the same way always will be. But there are things the huge corporations screw up and they know it. I Drive Chevy trucks, but if you ask me what if I have to turn a wrench on a vehicle what manufacture I want to work on I promise you it wont be Chevrolet or American for that matter. I apprenticed under a Multi Manufacture Master Mechanic and he taught me Jap engineering. They have it figured out and need to learn us dumb Americans a thing or three. I think that this drive to first is killing us, rather than make a good product from the start get it out on the market and fix it later It happens in all industries today, equipment, cars, boats. I think we would be better off if we tested and actually did tests in actual real world situations with people that use it test them, then the government is involved making everything " safe " and " idiot proof " is no wonder we are suffering in sales and design. You have to put a tag on a hairdryer, Warning do not use in the shower. It is no wonder we aren't building the best anymore.
  13. I can tell you being a marshal is a unique deal. It is a real learning experience, I spent 3 days on Bull Shoals the 2nd time they came here. I was paired with Hank Cherry, Keith Poche, and Greg Vinson. The tournament was delayed the first day due to a terrible storm. I watched Hank Cherry put on a clinic on how to fish a jerkbait, he had over 100 fish that day, He caught everything that swims in Bull Shoals that day. The guys I was with were super and willing to answer all questions and explain the whys and hows. They would show you the screen shots of there graphs and tell what ever you wanted to know. I think it would be fun anywhere to get to the marshal thing but on waters you fish it was an amazing learning weekend. Your right they just seem to sense the changes. I cant remember who said it but, they felt weekend guys would be better off practicing accuracy and presentation, it was unbelievable how accurate and how precise they could place lures. under limbs and bushes and docks.

    New fishin stick

    That is to pretty to fish with. That is art that needs to be set up and admired. He did a fine job. You got a real good kid.

    3/4 Eagle Rock afternoon

    Chunking and winding cranks is some times a misinformation for guys that are learning. You have to give that bait a twitch a pull a stop a go. With lures like the crawler and wart a lot of times the bite is very subtle when fishing this time of year, it just quits vibrating, or you hang it up on a rock or wood when you let your line go slack to get it to float off watch you line before you start reeling again, fish and usually the better ones will be waiting. Just another tip you almost cant reel one to slow, get it down and slow down and let it hit and bang into everything you can.
