    Re: To fish or not to fish during the outbreak

    The wife unit is handicapped and a high-risker. My trips are limited to groceries only and not until absolutely necessary. The crappie were just beginning to fire up then this started so I decided...

    Re: Braided Fishing Line Cutter

    I was cleaning yesterday and tested Sufix 832 with nippers, clippers, and Berkley braid scissors. Berkley won hands down. Regular scissors like Fiskars are hit or miss. One pair cut it cleanly, the...

    Re: Quarantine Survival

    I make this flyrod version of the basic crappie jig. That’s a small glass craft bead on a #6 or 8. This one’s a bit chewed and most of the marabou tail is gone.

    Re: Quarantine Survival

    I hit the ‘like’ because there isn’t a ‘love this post’ option. I got a few last week but the rain and 40* weather moved in again. My lawn needs cutting but it can wait. Possibly tomorrow it will be...

    I also use firetiger a bunch. Works great in the dirty water around here for walleye as well as LMB. The Bomber was chewed up and has a cracked back from walleye teeth. Figured color like this would...

    Re: Fishing with a... Spinner Rod

    Mono that old is useless. Strip it. I use Berkley Big Game. Cheaper than dirt and works well.

    Re: Fishing with a... Spinner Rod

    If it’s braid can you transfer it to another reel temporarily? That stuff lasts a long time. I have some on a couple crappie reels that must be 5 years old. With a 4-6# leader about six feet long I...

    Re: Interfering Adds

    What knotjoe sees is what I had going on with Safari. I run adblock and it didn’t do jack. The Brave killed it. That ad makes the site unusable.

    This happens every time they hear the boat being hooked up. Nobody is going to leave without them!

    Re: Interfering Adds

    The ‘Brave’ works OK on Safari. Adblock didn’t do anything for them on my phone.

    I understand the need for ads, but these are too much.

    Re: White Bass Fly Fishing

    I’d take hybrids all day! Those things are crazy. White bass on meth and will wear you out after a while. Biggest I ever caught was 9# but it fought like a 25# striper. (It was on a jig, though)....

    Re: Maybe for Crappie at the local lake

    That’ll work. I tie crappie flies on the cheap Eagle Claw wire minnow hooks. Get them to ride hook up, but if they hang on a stick they’ll usually bend and pull free.

    I get into large herds of whites on lakes every summer. Never hit them running up the streams in spring except for one time that I got a call from a friend.

    In my lifetime I’ve only had 2 break that ‘wasn’t my fault’. All others died at the hands of boat compartment lids, cleats, stepping on them, or a hungry truck door. Never broke one on a hook-set, be...
