  1. In my limited experience a correctly executed through wired plug will hold up to big bass. GT, tarpon and other ocean brutes on the other hand need something a little beefier so a wire harness might be the way to go. Not that I have ever caught any of the ones I mentioned but a man can dream and I have been experimenting with the wire harness method.
  2. Beautiful work!
  3. Thank you, excellent tutorial.
  4. This is very cool, something I have been thinking about on and off for a few years now, I like to fish for crappie and trout using the float for depth and distance, It aggravates me to know end when I make the perfect cast and the float twist the line up.
  5. Try Medfords in New Jersey.
  6. i have learned a lot just by watching Marlin baits videos, I like his style as well. I watch all the lure building videos I can find , my latest fixation if stick bait videos,

  8. My condolences to you and your family Tim.
  9. I give them a break until next season, too hot for me.
  10. Pretty work lonellr, I am also seriously considering going to one hook on my plugs.
  11. Same way, swim shads mainly or big curly tail grubs on the appropriate size jig head .
  12. You all catching any?
  13. Beautiful work!
  14. I gain better control with the square ends on also using the belt sander.
