I am barely fidhing myself. The readiation treatment is in the moring 5 days a week for the next 8 weeks including this one. I must keep my shoulders in a unmovable position for about 15 minutes. Trouble is the bad one starts in about a minute after they get started. Buy the time they ar done the pain is enough hat I cannot rise off the table with that arm. Not a pleasant experice at all. It about ends fishing for that day. Was hoping to get at this fixed after these treatments. Cannot do that now the knee replacement that needs to b replaces is finally about done. I will have that done on 21june 8 days after I stop the radiation treatment. Not the kind of season I was looking forward too.
That bss wrench caught was 6.3. I know the exact place that was. I do nit think he had to use must stelth as much as he had to know where he was. That area is a big spawing area. There is a old lady lives up their that has come down to the dock a time or two while I was fishing her dock and flirt with me.

I been casting and messing around a bit.I casted my 1/2 oz bass jigs on 0/4 O' shaunecy hooks. I will be dressing them pretty heavy. There is going to be no more rusted buck tail hooks anymore. I like the O'shaunesy because it sets the catching end back to a maxium. It also does not have a very wide gap. That also helps in the brush.
While I was out there I found a cheap old egg simker mold I bought back in the mid 60's. For some time I have been wanting to cast 3/4 and 1oz drop shot sinkers with swivels in them. It really helps keep the line from twisting. So I got to messing around and doing a bit of modifying and here is the first results.

I call her Beaty queen and all sorts of stuff. I am somewhat of the village jester around town. Blacks use to call me a jive turkey. Hell I learned it from them.

These or 1/64th oz crappie jigs. They are so easy to make. I just cut off about 3/8 of a inch of a rabbit strip and glue it to the bottom of the hook in back of the jig head with super glue. then wrap and seal it to the head. They work well in colder water. I use them all the time on my favorite crappie rod, A 7 ft ultra lite rod with 10lb test braid on it. That stuff is so thin and the rods so long I can cast these little devils close to 30 ft wet. I use crappie candy a lot also on ligs
