    Whopper Plopper 75

    Yes. I have modified my buzzbaits for years to make them squeak more/louder. I started building my own buzzbaits about 2 years ago & using some brass blades & they squeak real good once they get broke in.

    Whopper Plopper 75

    Got 2 of these from tackle warehouse, & i think they have a winner. It works much better than the 90. Its shorter than the 90 but much fatter. I put bigger hooks on mine & it still floats & comes thru the water good. Had several blow ups & caught a 3lber on the first trip with it. Hook up ratio wasn't good, it seemed like the couldn't suck it down from behind. I will have to experiment with it some more, but it gets the bites fo sho!

    Rain gear recommendation??

    The bps 100mph is awesome for cold weather. It will keep you dry in warm weather too, but you'll be sweating on the inside. I have a walls 10x light jacket that was great about 10 yrs ago, but after being worn & washed for that long, its not waterproof anymore. But i would recommend it if you can find it. Not sure they still make it. Got mine at hammers for $20.

    Strike king bull worm

    I throw a 10 power worm & zoom ol monster alot. This thing is quite a bit larger than that. A power worm is flat on 2 sides, its wide but not thick. I use a 5/0 for the power worm with no problem. I ordered some 7/0 gamakatsu hybrid g finesse worm hooks, we'll see how it goes.

    Strike king bull worm

    I found a good deal on ebay for the plum 10" bull worm. $7.30 for 2 packs. Country Sportsman has them. That being said, i ordered some last week & got them yesterday. Damn these things are HUGE. I throw a big worm alot, but these things are waaay bigger than anything else i use. Gonna have to get some hooks to go with them. What size is recommend for these beasts? Im thinking a 7/0 ewg (which i hate) or more.

    Tokyo rig???

    You can drag it, swim it or stroke it. I use a 3/8 oz drop shot weight in spring during the shad spawn. Sometimes stroking a swimbait ( big bite 4" cane thumper)on this rig at night is lights out.

    Co-poylomer line?

    I use p-line C21 clear copolymer for almost everything. Its cheap, very strong & fairly abraision resistant. Tackle warehouse has bulk spools of 750 to 900yds for 7.99 to 8.99. Can't beat it. A 300yd spool is $4.99 most places. Only thing i don't use it for is topwater & heavy duty flipping. I do use the 20lb for flipping in clear water tho. Been using it for 5+ yrs with no complaints.

    River fishing

    Dude, fish the eddys with a med size swimbait ( keitech 3.3 or 3.8) on a 1/4 or 3/8 oz head. Get downstream of the eddy, & cast across it. Let your bait sweep downstream, & keep it off the bottom. The fish will lay in the seam between the fast water & the slack water. They will dart out & grab stuff being swept by. Keep your line tight, but don't reel it too much, just let it ride. I've caught some nice fish below douglas like this.

    Ned rig

    Ok. After using this thing a couple times, i have found 2 things, it hangs up WAAAYYY too much on the open hook head.2, Its hard to rig right. But, i found a way to rig it easy. I noticed it had a built in hole in the head, but it wasn't deep enough for the screw lock. So i took a nail (standard framing nail, 16 p?) heated it with a lighter & inserted it a bit farther in & melted a bigger pocket. Works like a charm. Get it rigged up straight, pull it down a bit, put a bit of super glue on & its ready to go. But since it hangs so much, i just started texas rigging it, on a 1/0 hook with an 1/8 oz tungsten weight. Works much better for me, doesn't hang nearly as much & still catches fish. Now its time to experiment with it. Split shot rig, drop shot, ect.

    Tokyo rig???

    2 Split rings & a tungsten drop shot weight is what ive used. Put both rings on the hook, put the weight on one & tie your line to the other. Gives it more movement with 2 rings. Works good with a swimbait or a fluke. Its called a jika rig.

    Berkley max scent

    I got 2 packs of the max scent 4.5" "hit worms". 1st 3 casts, 2 smallmouth & a missed bite. They were just little fellas, but they chomped it hard & took off with it. Thanks, Airborne, i knew i could count on you. Lol.😛. Steve, i have developed my own scent concoction that they either eat, or die from smelling, lol. Its berkleys gulp shrimp marinade, liquid mayhem, & pro cure garlic crayfish & bang anise oil all mixed together. I put it in a small spray bottle, and you better make dam sure you don't spray it into the wind. The first time i used it, i laid the bait on the trunk of my old beater car & sprayed it on. 5 mins later (after catching 32 fish and losing my bait) i went back to the car to get re-rigged & saw that it had eaten the paint off to the bare metal. Its been almost 2 years now, and i still can't drive that car......😁

    Ned rig

    I will throw anything, from a 3" worm to a 9" swimbait. I try it all.😀

    Ned rig

    I ordered 2 packs of the big turds & 2 packs of the ned heads in 1/4 & 3/8 oz. The heads have a screwlock keeper built in & a sickle style hook. First one i tried went on pretty straight but won't pull all the way up, so its gonna get the gloo. Im assuming you fish this thing like a shaky head, so what makes it so good?

    Berkley max scent

    I tried the gulp minnows. Couldn't get a bite damiki rigging or drop shotting them. Changed baits to a yamamoto shad shape worm or armor shad & get bit. I also tried it on a float & fly on a 1/8 jighead & got nothin. Its fine by me tho, i don't have to get that crap on my hands. It smells like wolf vomit. Lol.

    Berkley max scent

    Anybody use this stuff? I saw alot of the pros at the last bassmaster event were drop shotting with the small worm. I'm very fond of the old powerbait worms, but never got into the gulp stuff much.
