  6. Baitfish

    You can use them same day as long as you count them towards your daily limit you can transport within the transportation corridor along the lake. Fallfish chunks also work very well for cats Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Painting lead jigs...

    Liquid paint I forget the brand but it was next to the jig molds on the shelf open the jar grab the jig by the eye with a tool dip it in the jar than hang it from a clothsline or string to dry overtime the paint in the jar dries up but you could add thinner to it. I do my lead pouring in the driveway on a different day. With small jigs I found keep it simple and make lots I don't even paint them anymore I add color with a soft plastic or a bait or some hair Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Painting lead jigs...

    i found just straight dipping in the paint was the best coating. I would do them all white than do another color over that if desired if i just did the color over lead it wasn't as bright of a color. After a while though I stopped painting them all together because I found the jig body I used made more of a difference and with the head a dull color it just took that out of the equation. I also tie my own hair jigs now for stream trout and if i want color i use a color'd thread rather than painting the head. Its a fun hobby to get into making some of your own lures it helps pass the time you cant be on the water. My next goal i think is to try making my own stick baits

  12. The right size bolt with a wingnut head? Maybe some o rings or a piece of rubber tubing on the bolt to get the tension if you wanna get really slick make a mold of the plastic part of the other knob and pour some epoxy in it around the bolt head 70 is ridiculous for that part Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
