Re: It's the little things that become a pita.

Sounds like vapor lock. You can try rotating the nozzle? Or pulling back the rubber on the nozzle? Check the vents?

Re: Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits Acquired by GSM

Nope. GSM looks to be a private company and don't report to shareholders which is a good thing.

Hopefully, they won't get flipped to Strike King........

Re: The perfect Punch Hook? Still searching for one!

I've wrapped some braid around the gap to act as protection so that the main line won't wedge there.

It's a pain and do it frequently but helps.

Something like that may get you by until you find the hook you're looking for.
