  1. I haven't had the chance to fish this lure or take a micrometer to compare the dimensions, maybe you guys can help me out. Originally, I was sure this was an earlier SS/Musso design, as this looks a hell of a lot like a SS mold to me. Although, the differences are there to make me think otherwise. First is the through wire eye, it is almost pear shaped and noticeably higher than all of my SS darters. Second difference is the eyes. The only similar eyes I have found are on Gibbs Darters, and this is a plastic molded lure, not wood. Lastly, the rear eye on the through wire is not finished with twisted wraps, instead it is doubled up back into the lure. Below is a picture of the lure. Any help would be appreciated.

  3. How do the Jr. Slanthead's hold up in fast water?
  4. "HugeDingy", I'm not pissed ... I think it's funny (and obnoxious) that people come on here and completely lose focus on the purpose of the thread. What do you think, is it over, or did you hang it up?
  5. Getting back on topic, went out in the snow today with my buddy and had a good time fishing light tackle... No substantial size to any of the fish, but good to be outside. So, too many of you, it's over. For some, it's not... I know how a lot of you bitter guys complain about catching schoolies, but if done with respect, there is nothing wrong with it. The guys out fishing in the snow aren't the same ***holes bouncing schoolies off the rocks on the West Wall the first nice, convenient day it blows SW in the Spring... I'm new on here and I'm starting to wonder if all threads end up in some sort of competition. Honestly, I would love to see some of the conversations (if you can even call them that) take place in a bar somewhere, it'd be pretty entertaining to see the reactions without a computer screen to hide behind... Getting back to the thread though, does anyone have anything factual, not opinionated remarks, about the current fishing? Is it over?
  6. ^The chowder, not the birds nest...
  7. Nice man, enjoy!
  8. Animal, you know what I meant. Yes, 34 in is a juvi fish... But fun non the less on light tackle.
  9. I don't want to start a debate on here... but I can't decide between VS and ZB...
  10. My buddy has been catching big numbers the past three days between schoolie sizes up to 34 in. Light tackle, on single hook jigs, and crimped barbs. He's been having a blast, won't tell me where but on the SoCo. Stuck here in DC until Monday, hoping they are still there when I get back. Have fun sitting at home if you think its "over" though.
  11. Scuba bottle, first stage, and a modified whip. With a handful of fittings and hose clamps you should be able to figure something out.
  12. Nice tog, try chowder if you are a fan...
  13. So do they sell Zeebaas?
  14. Let her pay for the memorial if she wants... PETA? That's people eating tasty animals, right?
