Flipping & pitching is about all I do 10 months of the year. For straight flipping I use a quantum kvd 7-1 & a lews SSG1Sh, 7-1. Pitching, skipping a curado 100
When I first became hooked on bass fishing backed in the mid 70s in Corvallis, Oregon, I could go a year fishing ponds & sloughs & never see another fisherman. Stan was the first writer I came across that was a northwest guy, good writer & good bass guy+ loved the hat. Saw a piece a few ...
I wasn't lucky enough to know him, but loved his sharing of knowledge. seemed like a guy respected & loved by so many, don't understand how some local toury could keep people away from his service. Probably another derby next month, Cooch is gone
Whoopbas hits it about right. 760 acres, wall to wall docks, fishing here 30+ years. Always been curious what I leave behind. Never cruise the docks with the big motor, you'd lose half your time. Docks range from shallow to deep so I think it's worth it for me to side scan. What about using a 5, scr...
amglad I posted this. so SI doesn't work in weeds? We got them, pond, milfoil, elodea, not emergent on a whole cause they control it some. Thanks for all the great info, glad to see not everyone is tech savy, must be a bunch old people out there. I am
Thanks guys. I'm very low tech, trying to go as simple as I can. Want one unit with side scan, gps, other with gps, down scan. must have chrip. Boat only is on a private lake so mapping & such not needed. Thinking hummingbird cause they seem to be a little less expensive, which I need as a retir...
MT, thanks. My though is to have it up front so I can see all the fish I'm missing! The way my lake is set up you can drop the trolling motor & do docks for an hour or so & never start the big motor. Not overly tech savy, gonna be asking more questions here.
going to replace my old old finders and one of many questions I have is side imaging. do I need it.The lake I fish is wall to wall docks and I spend pretty much all my time flipping, pitching, skipping them, so I'm usually fairly close. Does it work that way, being not more than 20' away? Looking at...
Sounds like a business to me! I've seen your jigs, long ago, things of beauty. I have a good friend who makes great working topwater swimbaits, beautiful paint jobs, much in demand by locals on the lakes he fishes. so far has stuck to his guns & make only what & when he wants. thanks, all th...
Hey jigging4bass, thanks so much for your help, I will check that site out. A million years ago I used to make ball head jigs for myself & some friends, unpainted, always worked great. What do you think, do we make to much of it? Course I'm on a lake with no real pressure. Thanks again
Wow, that's some great info, never realized I was so low tech. Best for me has always been the clear polish. The only lake I fish anymore is wall to wall docks, have my goods days & not so good skipping jigs behind them so they can take a beating. Honestly don't know if the chipping makes a diff...
Been making my own jigs for close to 40 years and have yet to find a clear that doesn't chip, is there such a thing? Always buy unpainted heads cause the painted seem to chip just as quick or quicker, Use fingernail polish for color. any thoughs? Thanks
