Gonna try some drop shotting next time I'm out. Picked up some Owner 2/O Mosquito Hooks, some 1/8oz and 1/4oz Green Gremlin steel drop shot sinkers. Also picked up some more 40lb Sufix 832 for my 6'10" MHF Lew's American Hero baitcaster that I plan on dedicating solely for topwater now. My spinning rod is now set up with 20lb Sufix 832 main line with about 4' of 10lb P Line copoly leader connected with a uni to uni knot 2/O Owner Mosquito Hook about a foot or so tag with an 1/8oz drop shot sinker. Possibly dedicating that rod to drop shots. Gotta get another spinning set up to dedicate to weightless Texas rigs, Ned rigs and wacky rigs. Just getting tired of rerigging the only spinning rig I have now. Will continue to rerig as long as I have to though. May be a while before I can get another spinning rig. 😎

Where did you get those plastic treble hook covers?  I'd love to grab some!

Got bit really hard last month.  Rediscovered my love for jerkbait fishing so went searching for a new jerkbait rod.  Ended up finding a 2 for 1 deal on these Daiwa Zillions. A 6'6" MH-F will be my new jerkbait rod.  Hoping to use the 7'4" MH-R as my new jig rod.

 

Also needed a reel to go with the new jig rod.  Found ebay had a good deal going on the Revo ALX-HS, especially with the promo codes people post up around here.  So far I love the reel.  I don't think i'll notice the extra .5oz compared to an MGX.

 

Finally got lucky (no pun intended) with a local Ollies.  I had given up hope in the spring time after visiting 3 local stores.  Happened across a new one and got lucky.  Got the LC lures for $5.99 and the Arashis for $2.99.  I don't need any of these lures, but I figured at that price why not give them a shot!

The bait monkey is satisfied....for now

You rock --- I need those since I hate it when my crank baits are tangled up. 

You can also get them on ebay via China.  They are almost unbelievably cheap, and usually take a couple weeks for shipping

Today I picked up a pair of Buff fishing gloves(light blue was the only color we had in my size and I'm tired of almost losing my rod out of my hand on hook sets), a pack of TroKar 4/O EWGs, a pack of Owner 1/O Mosquito hooks and a pack of Zoom watermelon red Tiny Flukes for drop shotting before I left work. Later on went to Bass Pro Shops and picked up a pair of Rapala fish grips, a bull frog Heddon Zara Spook and a pack of 4.5" green pumpkin BPS Wacky Stik-Os. Supposed to go fishing in the morning. Looking forward to trying them out. 😎

Am looking at ebay - What would be the ideal size I should get ?

This is where things get a bit sticky, as I don't think they're consistent seller to seller.  I typically am ordering a package of several different sizes, so I never sweat it too much.  In general i'd say size 3 for jerkbaits/small cranks.  2s will cover most cranks and 1s for DD cranks and other HD hooks

No way man, I'll never get rid of those, lol! I have 10 of them all blinged out with different colors. I got the Curados for $111 each. I just couldn't resist that deal. Telling you I love everything about the K but the weight! They're so heavy compared to everything else I have. When are you going to try the forbidden reel is the question??

Yesterday I went to Wally World to get a few things and as always had to go down the fishing aisle. Finally found a sunburn colored Booyah Pad Crasher to replace the one I lost months ago. Then today before I left work I picked up a natural perch Zara Spook, a pack of Strike King red skirts, a pack of Strike King black and blue skirts and a pack of Aaron's Morning Dawn Roboworms. Got the skirts to fix and experiment with the legs on my hollow body frogs. As you can see in one of the pics, I've done tricked out my sunburn colored Booyah Poppin' Pad Crasher with red legs now. 😎

This week I got a 7' Heavy Fast action Zillion for a great deal from a member here.  Went out and picked up a Curado 70 to put on it.  Once I got over the fact that it's a Shimano reel on a Daiwa rod, it's become a fantastic combo.

Stopped at Dicks today and was looking for pretty much nothing and found some Seaguar Kanzen braid for $5.  I bought 4 spools (40lb, 50lb and 60lb).  

 

I am not a big fan of braid, but for $5, I think I can give it a try again.

I won a $20 Amazon gift card at work and they have free shipping deal for orders over $35. So I spent $60 and got a bunch of goodies:

  1. Nichols 3/8oz Sabre Swim Jig - Bluegill (x2) and Black Plague - I was on the fence, I really like the Dark Knight and Black-eye options but I figured I could get that desired look with a trailer. These get rave reviews, so I wanted to give them a shot.
  2. Megastrike 1/2oz Evolution 2 Heavy Cover Jig - Black/Blue - this jig was cheap as chips and had good reviews, I'll report back on the quality.
  3. Zoom Bait Fat Albert Twin Tail Bait - Black (x2) and Chartreuse - these are hard to find locally and I haven't given grub style baits a shot yet.
  4. Berkley Havoc Pit Boss - Sky-walker and Blue Shiner Gold - I love these baits as jig trailers and have had success in other colour options.
  5. Strike King Twin Tail Menace Grub - KVD Magic - I can't find these locally either, but saw KVD using them on WFN and had to give it a shot.
  6. Berkley Powerbait Attractant, Bass Scent - never used attractants before but I plan on marinating some pit boss and paddle-tails in this stuff to see if it produces.
