    Re: Angling, The never ending Journey

    Couldn't have said it better !

    From the beginning where live bait was the only thing I knew to use to the present creation of new lure designs, the journey has meandered in different directions....

    Re: The lack of good fishing articles.

    There were a few celebrity anglers like Jerry Mckinnis that made TV videos as well as those that contributed to In-Fisherman Magazine. Today it's all about sponsoring lures and other tackle via lies...

    Other than catching fish, that reason above all others is a priority especially having to deal with -sometimes daily - frustrations and upsets. Also retired, the only frustrations and upsets I have...

    Re: Angling, The never ending Journey

    I became excited fishing as a young man after my mother helped me catch sunfish using a worm and a float. There were no places to fish near where I lived so unless I walked down to the Hudson R....

    Re: Food for Thought

    When we get too smart for our own good and overthink in the process, we make simple things needlessly complicated, and our productivity suffers as a result. Half the problem with many anglers is...
  6. Re: I have developed a unique finesse lure rig called “The Thread Rig”

    1/4 oz (7g) bullet weight is not a finesse weight and allows little lure body action except what would be expected from a Texas rigged short plastic worm. A light ball head jig with #4 or #6 hook...
  7. Re: I have developed a unique finesse lure rig called “The Thread Rig”

    I'd be interested how well you do using it. Post some photos with it attached to fish mouths.
    What is the lure's length? All soft plastics can take the right size jig hook which won't affect action...
  8. Re: For all the blurb and modern advances…

    Quite a few decades ago a float and earthworm were the only rigs I used to catch fish. Didn't catch much fishing from shore, but expectations were high before every outing - same as today. But isn't...

    You can't see a backyard in Minnesota LOL. Warmest winter in decades in NY.- some days in the 60's.

  12. Re: Best methods now I have access to several stretches of river?

    1/32 and 1/16 oz ball head jigs and various material attached to them has done well for most species along with small diameter braid line. Depending on the size of fish you expect to catch, rod...
  13. Re: Texas / Carolina rigs defined along with jig rigged plastic lures

    I haven't used a Texas rigged plastic worm and bullet sinker for years; haven't been too keen on the drop shot or Carolina rigs either. As many have seen in my other post on jig heads, I specialize...

    Good thing all fishing related products I buy on Ebay don't involve bidding and go for far less than from any other sources and s/h free.

    Colors ? why not clear plastic ?

    I proved to myself last year that clear soft plastics catch as many fish of all species as those of different hues. These were poured yesterday and I guarantee they will catch fish even in less than...

    Re: Drop shotting - am I missing something?

    Drop shot rigs are fine for slowly working areas near the bottom, but not efficient working different depths and more water in more directions from where you're casting. For that I would highly...
  18. Texas / Carolina rigs defined along with jig rigged plastic lures

    First off, thanks so much for introducing various rigs and lures to catch different fish species. I've been trying to do the same in various forums with pictures rather than videos.

    Lure action is everything when it comes to slow retrieves and small finesse lures. Note where the hook comes out of the same-size lures you're using - half the length of the lure or a...

    That's one thing I don't see often in the states - huge yellow perch. It's my favorite species to catch and I do envy those fine fish you've caught.

    Re: Water clarity vs success on canals

    One thing I forgot to add:
    Water clarity in most cases is not important due to the presence of a fish's lateral lines. It is the eyes of fish that can't see a lure in the dark and directs its...

    Re: Water clarity vs success on canals

    Sylvanillp suggestion is #1 in importance. Fish not present = fish not caught.

    There are thousands of soft plastic lures fish bite regardless of species and fish size. Lure design and size are...
  25. Re: Hopkins Spoons have caught carp in tidal creeks

    Funny how few realize the variety of fish species that will bite lures - especially soft plastics rigged on light jig heads.
