  • About Me
    Just an older guy that loves bass fishing, starting in the mid 1960's. Watched all the tv fishing shows and bought all the magazines. Fished out of aluminum deep v boats. Still fishing out of my '96 Grumman dv16sp w/ 50 hp rude, and we get out 32 - 50 times a year. Mostly weekends. I am no "hot stick" but I know my way around a tacklebox.

  1. Otter - i haven't found that many in 55 years. Nice.
  2. I only have about a dozen in the boat, floating/ suspending/deep in a few different colors. The other 3 or so dozen stay at home in a 370. I don't need every color in the catalog, in every size or depth. My best catcher last year was a 1/2 oz. Lucky Craft SP in chartruese w/ purple back that i got at our annual lure swap, and paid $3. I never would have bought that lure at a store price because it just doesn't seem to make sense fishing it my clear lakes. Silly me.
  3. I think TR46 could catch a bass on that.......
  4. Like others have said, a sharp, fine wire hook would help. Maybe even leaving the hook slightly exposed. Ajay was a little harsh...(unlike him)
  5. 16' grumman deep v, 50 hp evinrude pros: perfect size for the lakes i fish (under 1000 acres) cheap to operate (12 gal. tank - good for 3-5 trips) handles waves better than a johnboat it's paid for cons: rod storage- 7' max length, can only fit 8 rigs wished it had: 70hp,hydraulic steering,24v spot-lok t/m
  6. You could assemble 5 of those for $20.
  7. I couldn't care less if my spinnerbait vibrates more or less than yours. I fish during the day in clear water, so it's a visual thing (to me). .035 or larger dia. wire, preferably not a "r" bend, a sampo or worth b.b. swivel, usually gold blades, and a skirt i make up, and a good trailer hook...$5 each.
  8. I've been a Chippendale for the last 43 years.
  9. I remember watching Billy Westmoreland's tv show always hawking those bass magnet cranks. I think they were his major sponsor. As far as which baits to take fishing, i would not, except for maybe one of the poppers since you have a few. (i love old baits and don't want to chance losing them.
  10. Trey would not have won with a snoopy rod and barbless hooks. Crazytalk.
  11. I can't afford the electronics, so i will employ my "forward- facing dog technique. 😵
  12. Like Tom,, i would use something else, but i have pulled thru sparse weedgrowth with a Bandit flat maxx and rapala shad raps. Tight wobble and thin lips.
  13. I'm with you C, i don't think it matters either. Painted heads look better to me, but i do throw both.
