  1. You don't say, interesting read....Welp! guess I will be the first to admit i did NOT know this and had always been told and had thought the opposite of your findings was true. Never thought to look myself that's to much work. However I have always believed in leader lengths to be a big part of presentation. Which is why I have swim noodles with doubles some triples of pre made leaders in one foot increments from 3 to 10 ft. and in three different lb. tests. (15,20,30) and I will experiment and change this up if things are not going like I feel they should be. Some find this a bit excessive and over the top but it gives me piece of mind. I let the fish tell me what leader length/lb. test they prefer that day (most days I cant go wrong with anything under 10 ft., but some deys they do get a little more picky). I have a new imagination on how they (flasher/flys) are running on long line set ups like lead core and copper now. If they are hitting good on those kind of set ups then that would give good reason to lengthen the flasher/fly leaders on my dipsey and riggers if they weren't popping like the long line flasher /fly set ups. Also maybe good reason to speed up if using spoons to no good avail. while long leader flasher fly set ups are killin em cause they are on a faster more aggressive bite?
  2. Cha that was another thing. I was hoping I could just bring him to the er pay whatever it cost and be on our merry without any mom drama being involved. But they just had to have her permission before they could help the poor guy, and i had to make the after midnight call to this kids mom and explain the haps. Luckily she was very cool about it, almost to cool and not what i was expecting at all. She invited me out for drinks a week after actually. The other thing that i was scared of for a lil bit was having to drive my car to the hosp. with my left hand attached to this kids right hand and when we walk in the main question is gona be "how did this happen?"...Was not looking forward to trying to answer that. I was excited at first to finally be able to have the chance to try this new hook removal "trick" i had learned and seen done so effortlessly.
  3. So yes GREAT idea to remove any more barbs or trebles before attempting this.
  4. Unfortunatly tho this trick does not allways work as easily as these men had made it seem. Least on the few attempts of one instance a few years ago by me. We were enjoying a weekend up north at our cottage and my son had brought one of his friends along. Well it was late at night and I had just introduced them to fishing topwater along the docks at night before i headed to take a shower. It wasnt long and i could hear Cameron screaming Dad, Dad come quick. I run outside to where the boys were and his friend is on the neighbors dock with the other half his body thrown over into the neighbors boat and crying and screaming. I go down and look to see whats going on was he had casted into the neighbors boat, got it stuck and tried to reach in to remove it but had gotten one of the trebles in his finger and the other trebles still attached to the boat..ok so pull the hooks out of the boat and go inside and attempt the "trick" shown above on this kid who is nervous,jumpy,scared and crying. First attempt did not work and i put the poor kid in more pain and screaming more. Second attempt found the "other" treble hook from the lure now inserted deep into my thumb. So we are attached at the hands by a double treble popper lure. I pull the hook out from my thumb with pliers cause well it didnt take long to realize the rope and pull "trick" was not gonna work here. In summary I ended up having to drive him hours away to the nearest er/hospital at around midnight. Doc numbs his thumb quick pull with pliers and all is back to normal...Then soon as we get back home and i mean before i had even gotten out of the car this was now around 3am, both kids simultaniously ask me if its "ok" they go fishing! And This is only how big those hooks were..
  5. Glad your all learning "other" things, but this is really all anyone or any of you need to learn. My mother told me what to do once.....once
  6. From the Big Water edition Precision trolling book that i have thats about 5 yrs.old it shows a 1# dipsey with ring with wire (82 feet down @ 210 feet of line out) going about 2 feet deeper than braid (80 feet down @ 210 feet of line out) at the max. depths they illustrate per feet of line out on a zero setting. Now from what im looking at BIG picture and roughly, Wire reaches 2' to about 5' feet deeper per feet of line out on the various dipsey settings. Question 1 i have of maybe many... If you put the same hot presentation you had on the wire dipsey onto a braid line dipsey at the same depths and settings it should work just as good. Yes?, No?, and Why?
  7. Now I remember who you are. And i also remember you know the guy that has to clean your boat. "Even a fish stays out of trouble if he keeps his mouth shut"- unknown
  8. If you dont mind me asking...exactly what type of vintage Abu reel were you able to sell for $275? Not questioning it...just curious
  9. I dont do nuttin...EVER, and I like it that way.
  10. A little Jack Handy...I get a big kick out of Steven Wright and the Dos Equis beer "Most interesting man in the world" quotes also. "If you ever have to steal money from your kid, and later on he discovers it's gone, I think a good thing to do is to blame it on Santa Claus." "I hope that after I die, people will say of me: That guy sure owed me a lot of money." "It's easy to sit there and say you'd like to have more money. And I guess that's what I like about it. It's easy. Just sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting that money." "To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, Hey, can you give me a hand? You can say, Sorry, got these sacks" "I think a good product would be Baby Duck Hat. It's a fake baby duck, which you strap on top of your head. Then you go swimming underwater until you find a mommy duck and her babies, and you join them. Then all of the sudden, you stand up out of the water and roar like Godzilla. Man those ducks really take off! Also Baby Duck Hat is good for parties."
  11. I Like the fly on the bottom thats just above your post Im quoting you from... "CS Coatings" makes a clear lure / jig finish that works pretty good (plus it smells outstanding). I use a small cheap paintbrush and put a few coats on the thread. It dries pretty fast. Turns out nice and glossy. Costs about $5 a jar.
  12. Heres a few you proly never heard before Grumpy.... "Are you gona reel that fish in or do i have to go back there and do it?" "I dont know if it helps, but it sure doesnt hurt" "Left turn Clyde" Got a buddy Bruce thats famous for these... "Colder than a mother-in-laws kiss" "Hotter than a cowboys pistol" "More crap than a 50# pidgen" I own the copyright to... "You dont tell me what to do".
