I have to be honest I looked at the picture 5X and your face is exactly why I fish and what keeps me coming back!
A wet line is way better than a dry one!

I just put in an order for those earlier today!  :nod: After some research and YouTube videos it seems like those and the  set by Cal Coast are the better sets.

The Hawg Forum / So what do you think?

So this weekend I made a decision. It hit me like a ton of bricks when I caught my 2nd fish during a night... (and the fact it has been coming up more and more)

I fish in a Thursday night league and with Curt in SRIBA. The waters we fish in RI and for the most part CT tend to get hit pretty hard. Everyone knows the good lakes and those lakes take a beating. SO... Long story short Friday night my first fish was a typical 1.5lber but looked very healthy and solid. I thought to myself it was great to see a new young class of fish beefing up! Then a caught my 2nd and it was also a 1.5lber however it was a different story. I went to put in my cull tag and his jaw was split from front to back. You could see where someone stuck a cull tag in too far back from the fishes lip and it must have ripped. It sucked to know "we" did that...
SO I'm going to test out some of the non-penetrating cull tags and hopefully others will follow. Who knows maybe our club rules will change and non-penetrating cull tags will be in the rules.

I know others are already using these tags so please chime in. What brands work and what brands suck???

"Tiogue Lake due to high concentration of Enterococci bacteria."

Add in the 3+ days in the 90s we have coming...  :puking:

Great Team work here guys! This is what it is all about, protecting our fisheries through education and leading by example.  It also goes to show you that the State will listen too!  :yes: :thumbup:


Boating Forum / When a simple thing becomes a PITA!

Without nice days to work on the boat outside I've shoe horned my boat in the garage to get it ready. I've been chipping away at the to-do list for the season and almost have it done. Thursday is first tournament so I'm down to the wire.

Last night I said let me fix that marker light on my left wheel well. Found a new set at Walmart 5$ ea not bad. I took off the broken one and hooked up the new one. 5-10 min  Easy, Done. Right... NOPE

I decided to replace the other side so they match. The new one is a hint bigger and I wouldn't want planes flying above to see I have 2 different marker lights. LOL So, I take off the working one and hook up the matching one and NOTHING... No light.... Take it off test it on a battery back and it works. Test the old one and it works. Try both again and nothing. Ended up the DARN wire snap on T connector from the factory IN THE FRAME came loose.. Now to get to it I have to unbolt the fender step and fish out the wires tonight.

BOATS... You got to love em... Figured I'd share I know we all have been there... HA

You "should" be able to run an entire tournament without issue! It sounds like your batteries are more the issue than the TM. 1 bad battery in a series can cause a massive reduction in usage. When you take them off the charger they will appear full but not for long!

I would be pulling the batteries and having Napa test them. You might have a dead cell in one causing all your pain.

Are they deep cycle?
I have a 36v Minnkota setup and have been running my deep cycle Optima batteries for 6+ years.

I couldn't get myself to keep buying them so I started making them.

There is nothing better than catching 5lbrs on your own baits! Plus when you tie one on take a cast then hear that mid flight line snap, watching your bait sail across the pond and the next zip code it doesn't hurt as much because it only cost me about $2...  (giggle)

Not a bad deal. I think when I got mine a few years back it was $15 for 1... I still have them and use them often.  Mostly for cold weather starts or that time of the year when you see the yellow pollen cloud comes off the trees.

Or do what I do at Chapmans early in the year is expect to catch nothing so when you do hook up its a bonus.

That place HATES ME!!! LOL OR Fish near my boat because everyone around me throwing the same baits usually hooks up. HA

Honestly first few trips out there trust whatever you are throwing. Don't drive yourself crazy yet!

Like Curt said... Don't rush it if you don't have too. Having one that works is 1/2 the battle. Keep that one and squirrel away a couple bucks here and there. If your not in a rush you are guaranteed to find a better deal than just grabbing the next one that comes along. Just keep an eye open.

Your not going to win any races with a 40lb but with a good battery you will make it back to the ramp!  :yes:

I'll be getting in on this one! I had one bag left last year from a bulk order 4 years ago. Tired of dealing with it!

Time to upgrade! Thanks Curt for the reminder and detailed review!

Looking Great!

I have about 10+ molds if your ever looking to trade off for a pour or two just let me know. It's nice to pour different stuff ever now an then and not have to buy the molds. All mine are aluminum injection but are hand pour.

Sorry been out of the forums for a bit crazy work schedule and cold temps haven't had fishing on the brain.

Baits look awesome! I've been pouring for years still have fun doing it. Nothing like catching bass off your own baits!
