  1. I have been looking into this, just so you know! This may be something we get done in a few weeks and I will let you know. I just need to keep practicing with my dremel which.. well I am shaky with. Also as of right now, we are closing down Flatt-Land Tackle. We have something big in the works. I can't really comment on it right now. I will keep you guys in the loop as things progress and will be back to making great stuff soon!

    PolarKraft???

    yeah then he can see me get pissed and throw my gear into that lake. I love that lake, gorgeous but.... it frustrates me beyond belief.

    PolarKraft???

    found this walk through of a 2011 model. Looks pretty nice. I would be interested in the ride quality.

    Steve, If you are looking for a new boat, I would check out the Tracker 195. I have had a 175 for a few years now and the top speed of about 35 mph gets to you after a while. Not to mention the slimmer hull can be a little unstable at times. I am planning on trading mine up soon. I have been shopping around looking at the Nitros, which did not impress me at all. You get more boat for the dollar with a Triton by comparison. The Tracker 195 though, very large casting deck, 150 hp mercury (top speed 63-65) for around $26k. I have kind of narrowed my search down to the 195 or a Triton 189.

    Lowrance Elite 12 ti

    I have the elite 7 on my boat. They are great units. I have been thinking of upgrading to the larger screen at my console and moving that 7 unit to my kayak.

    Used ranger

    It's pretty hard to beat a Ranger boat. With that being said.. Its an 11 year old boat, what condition is the carpet in, the seats, has it oxidized? I wouldn't want something that has been left outside for 10 years. I'd want to inspect it well first and have a mechanic look it over.

    Damiki Technique

    I don't know. Some people claim that the red eyes trigger bites. It sounds kind of strange but then again, the brain of a fish is kind of strange as well so ..... perhaps it all pans out in the long run?

    well I got home to my molds yesterday and set out to work using them. I didn't like the amount of detail that the powder paint took away when they were dipped in the fluid bed and baked. Nothing terrible, but no where near as good as they came out when I took my airbrush and painted a white, gold and black shad scheme on them. I love these. I coated them with the same stuff I use on my hard bodied plastics to protect the paint. I guess I should try some with red eyes as well.

    Winter fishing

    I went out of Dale Hollow in 20 degree weather. I'll pass on the winter fishing.

    Jig pouring

    You can actually find good quality lead on ebay and various other places for decent prices. I generally pay about $1 per pound. We used to get ours from the local gun range for $5 for100 lbs but it was unrefined and by the time you melt it down and get all of the jackets etc out of it... it's not worth the hassle. I wouldn't bother with wheel weights either, I have heard of them causing explosions.

    Tourney Scales

    well I don't get to fish with you guys much being in the middle of the state but I do enjoy the forums and enjoy the dialogue so I will drop in a donation here in the next few days. I didn't realize those scales were so expensive!

    Jig pouring

    when we first started doing it, it actually started over green pumpkin football jigs. We caught a lot of fish on them and of course you lose jigs dragging them across the bottom. Walmart never had what we wanted or was always sold out of green pumpkin so we invested in the equipment and started making various jigs and hard plastics and selling them to locals to make up for some of the investment costs. Since the nearest Bass Pro to us is 80+ miles away and the only decent tackle shop in the area charges and arm and a leg we caught on pretty fast in these parts. Advice.. don't skip on the safety equipment. You're going to get burned at some point. Get some nice leather gloves, always wear eye protection. I don't know what pot you ordered but with ours it has a lever we use to open and close the flow of lead, even with it closed it drips and splatters off the bottom plate, if one of those splatters hits your eye... well you get where I am going. We have started putting an old soup can down under it to catch some of the lead but some splatters still fly up.

    I make and sell them. The initial investment can be fairly substantial with the equipment depending on how expensive you want to go with that. Lead pot, molds, hooks, paints etc. They don't really start paying for themselves until you start making vast amounts (hundreds) of them. If you're just looking at making a few custom ones, your better off finding someone who does custom ones and ordering them. Here is a video of a friend of mine from the west coast doing a video explaining the cost or the old is it worth it question. if you're just looking at getting into it as a hobby or something to do during the cold time of the year, I will say it can be fun! Also keep in mind that he is sponsored by Do-It so he uses their products and lists their prices. You can find some things cheaper in various places on the web but the prices he lists are a fair analyst.

    I seen a guy make a spook out of an old sharpie and was catching them on it.
