  1. Not one of the 11K bikes that were recalled
  2. Weekend Bump
  3. TTT
  4. I figure I'd drop the price to $100.00, before I close the thread and list elsewhere. Never fished the CCC but thought this might make a good canal bike for someone.
  5. I have made some glow in the dark jig heads, not sure if they'll really make a difference. I can tell you this. DO NOT hang them in a dark garage at night and DO NOT drop glow in the dark powder or powder paint on the floor or workbench! You'll be creeped out by all those floating glowing balls when you enter the dark room! I had who knows how many jig heads hanging waiting to get tied, and walked into the garage and before I turned the lights on all I can see was glowing orbs everywhere! I have experimented with glow in the dark stuff. As of yet the only workout I gave was in saltwater. 120"- 170" ft depths. I was fishing for stripers, porgies and seabass. The rigs I tied using glow in the dark beads, and home poured glow in the dark big grubs kicked some serious butt. They out fished every other rig. I was however using high end rods and reels with braid and floro top shot. So sensitivity was much greater thatn those using cheapo rods and reels. But no doubt they certainly helped. On bluefish trips as well, my glow in the dark grubs were consistently torn to shreds. Now on the freshwater. I have made many glow in the dark jig heads, which I plan on using next weekend. But again, I fish deep water at times for smallmouth especially, 40'-80'. And have caught LMB as deep as 60' Last summer I poured some glow i the dark senkos for SOL member to try. He was mainly a night fisherman. NADA, ZIP,ZERO, ZILCH! Yet when he tore the senko in half, the fish began biting, So who knows what the fish really want? All anyone can do is try something, If it works great, if it doesn't, well, we've all done that many times I'm sure. I have also tied some very sparse black bucktail jigs for SMB. Mi idea is to fish them using berkley gulp black leeches.. the opposite of glow... We shall see how those work. As other posters have said, Contrast. I like either contrast, or making jig heads to look like an extension of the skirt of trailer for a better profile. Again the fish probably don't care, but I like to play. You should see my plastic making area. I have coloring pigments for colors I can't even identify. And who knew there were so many different shades of watermelon? So i Need jig heads to match all those colors.
  6. Price drop $95 shipped for all three.
  7. Weekend price drop $125.00
  8. Also last season on a whim, as a joke actually started using the Lunker City Spankys, My son biought me a bunch for father's day because Charley Moore uses them. I caught some monsters with them! Probably because the fish have seen too many senkos. But not Spanks. Best gag gift I ever got. Basically a worm with the "egg sack" in the middle to fish wacky style. I pour a lot of my own soft baits. Next mold I will be getting for the winter doldrums, a wacky worm mold. And the hook I use with them. Any, they all work fine!
  9. For me so far this season, this has been the year of wacky rigging. I've been using the Gamakatsu weedless weighted wacky hooks. All big fish on them, super weedless. And being weighted the bait goes down the water column a little faster. Helps on those windy days. Only bad part is $10.00 for 3, and just saw them on Amazon for over $13.00 for 3.
  10. Been doing more garage cleaning. I have for sale three Do It sinker molds #1- Two oz bank sinker production mold pours 4 at a time #2- Two oz bass casting sinker mold pours 5 at a time. Uses #7 barrel swivels #3 1oz, and 1 1/2 oz bass casting sinkers can pour 4 of each size at a time. Uses #7 barrel swivels All in near new condition Solid handles Close tight Would prefer to sell as a one lot. Asking $105.00 Shipped by Priority Mail to your door. Handles may be removed to make room in the box. Paypal only please. Thanks for looking!
  11. I'll also be posting this in Jig Head Color Preference thread I like Cajuntec in above post experimented with glow in the dark stuff. As of yet the only workout I gave was in saltwater. 120"- 170" ft depths. I was fishing for stripers, porgies and seabass. The rigs I tied using glow in the dark beads, and home poured glow in the dark big grubs kicked some serious butt. They outfished every other rig.

  12. Weekend price drop.$150.00 No realistic offer refused. I want it gone.
  13. Forgot to add. Recent outing to my always producing porgy spot, gave up one keeper porgy, and a large skate. Haven't caught one of those in a long time.
  14. Fishing in general has sucked. Full moon tides, followed by the storm, followed by north winds, changing barometer. Not the best week to fish. Fished eastern sound last weekend. Tides were roaring. Water was a bit bumpy. Caught a bunch of just under legal size stripers, and a few small anorexic blues diamond jigging. Some seabass on the jigs, and porgies and seabass on bait. Porgies were on the small side. I'm in the middle of the sound, not much better hear, though the chunk bite in deep water is sort of ok. So east side, west side, all around the sound. FIshing is fair at best. On a brighter note local harbor is loaded with bunker finally.
  15. When my son was that age, heading north from Conn, we'd go to Patriots training camp, then on to Maine. Stop in Kittery to get him some clothes, fishing stuff, gear up for hunting season, and grab a bite, then onto Old Orchard Beach. Lots of places to eat, boardwalk amusement park. We'd even charter a boat there for a day of striper fishing. He was always an outdoors kid. We even stopped in Kennebunkport for a trip on a lobster boat.
