  1. Damiki Technique

    A tiny tube jig works for me sometimes when I mark one or two on the bow graph
  2. Damiki Technique

    I'm guessing the fish are just getting used to it like every other tactic. Good news is they still eat rattle traps spinnerbaits and plastic worms and they have for 50+ yrs
  3. Swimbaits

    Doug makes swimbaits that catch the crap out of them. I have to reload frequently. The key to me is the paddle tail and how well it thumps especially at slow speeds. The old sassy shads still work too
  4. New “boat”. LOL

    Sweet! Congrats. Those things get great gas mileage and the trailer wheel bearings rarely go out
  5. Morristown Marine-Yamaha/Skeeter

    Sweet ride. 4 stroke is also never cold
  6. Took the plunge!!!

    Got mine too! Craws and beavers sculpins and little shad grubs. And jigs!!!
  7. Ned Rig

    I still have some of those somewhere. 3x or something like that
  8. Ultrex

    If you spin it the same direction several revolutions that can happen. Never had spot lock but I twisted my old one up tight a few times
  9. Gloves

    I can't fish in gloves either
  10. Shaky head

    I use 6 lb mono for Norris, 12-15 lb mono for tn river
  11. 15 HP Johnson for sale

    No longer need this but still thought about buying it hahaha
  12. Order and pricing changes

    GOt me some coming my way!!!!
  13. Ned Rig

    I have caught fish with these baits on a ned rig. the paddle tail end of the producto worm and any section of a trick worm has been good so far but more experimenting to come
  14. Ned Rig

    It darts around a lot different that a curl tail grub. Also when it's cold you can hold it still (geographically) and make it stand up and wiggle. All that to say I catch a whole lot more on a curl tail grub than a ned rig but I'm getting a little better at it. Works good on a screw lock shakey head too
  15. Blackburn Fork 8-11-17

    Fun fishin right there, my fav
  16. Soft baits

    I still have a ton of almost all my softy baits. Might need some more grubs soon
  17. Livewell pump issue

    I have to prime my main intake all the time because there are so many shad scales in all my hoses
  18. Stan Sloan's Bait Co.

    I have caught fish with their jigs and I have heard the buzzbaits are awesome
  19. Stratos Boats (A Sad Day)

    I like fishing out of a canoe better than a kayak, got my canoe for $300 ten years ago and I have put it through the ringer including Class 3 whitewater and it still doesn't leak a drop (riveted aluminum). Even got it stuck in devils jump on the big south fork and it lived to tell about it
  20. Off shore

    Academy is a lot better place to shop anyhow
  21. Wireless Trolling Motors

    I had an early motor guide wireless and it was a disaster. Had to get the gears rebuilt twice, the guy had a dozen of the gearboxes just like mine in his shop. Now I have a hand control 74 lb minn Kota riptide with a big foot on/off switch. I like it much better than wireless and cable steer foot pedal
  22. Shad spawn

  23. 21 P Mercury Prop

    What size engine will that fit on?
  24. Night time spinnerbaits

    Wish I could help, i force myself to throw them all the time and I have caught a couple dinks in a couple decades, mostly daytime fishing
