  1. I will def. post a short video when I have a chance to test it out.
  2. I agree they are buoyant; I added a bunch of weights maybe to counter balance that but sure it'll work.
  3. That's what I'm afraid of. I applied 3 layers of 2 ton epoxy just to maybe stand a chance. Fingers crossed.
  4. Still can't go fishing with the cold weather so just making more lures to try them out in the spring. Decided to use dense foam instead of wood to see if its even feasible. It came out but not sure about the durability or cast-ability or even catching a fish.
  5. Couldn't really fish the since herring came and went and decided to make a bamboo Rod for some pan fishes this coming spring. It's a bit rough but should be able to handle a few crappies, just hope no catfish takes my line.
  6. I found the Storm 360GT in 3" and 5" is a great search bait. Catch bass and picks when nothing works for me.
  7. Thanks all. It was fun learning to work that piece of work and I do hope the fish would gulp that down. Will def. post photo when I get a chance .
  8. The weather hasn't been cooperating in awhile now, so decided to pick up lure making. Specifically wooden lure since there are plenty of guides out there. Here is my first end result. It's a mini jump frog lure targeting snakehead.
  9. Will be prospecting the area this Saturday morning, anyone have any tips for the area? Not looking for spots just info on depth, baits and lures to use etc. I'll be targeting togs amongst the pilings, rock piles and docks but open to some schoolies if they show up. Thanks
  10. I see alot people using spinning or conventional reels for togs-. What about small profile baitcaster, anyone using them for tog? I'm slowly gravitating toward them, they are light and got enough drags for tog. Anyone else using them?
  11. I used jig, hook and sinker on kayak. They each have their places like Tim said. Heavy current and deep will required sinker to hold bottom. Shallow and calm will bring out the jig. With that said, jig is more fun. I also don't use tog jigs - I use butterfly jig and yes it's weird.
  12. I do this as well and I find it great fun with light rod. Here is a video of me jigging up some porgies.
  13. No info here but that place looks like it should hold some decent size fishes. Curious to know what you'll get at the end of your line.
  14. Nice catches. Clam works great but messy. Might want to try jigging with a micro jig with assist hook(s). Alot of fun and no mess.
  15. Never had dogfish before - didn't even know people eat them. I'm gonna have to try it. Isn't blowfish poisonous?
