    Making a Meat Rig

    I have been making them and have seen all the video. I have a ton of flies so cutting them down to 2.5" for teasers is no big deal. My only question was whether or not I needed a bead chain. At his point I think I'm going to add a ball bearing swivel roughly 18" above the meat head and tie the teasers above that. Put a loop on the flouro and attach that to the snap swivel on the flasher

    Making a Meat Rig

    Decided this year will be the year to finally throw meat into the mix. And since I'm the kind of person that enjoys catching fish from something I make myself I thought I would look into making meat rigs. What I have done so far is started with 3 arms length of 50lb flouro, snelled a treble on, added two beads, snelled an octopus on then a dreamweaver meat head. Up past the head I cut 3 trolling flies down to 2-2.5 inches for my teasers and put them on the line by looping small beads. Now heres my question.......... do I need to use a bead chain ??? My thought was to put a loop at the end like when making flies and this loop would connect to the snap swivel on the flasher and this would prevent line twist. Looking forward to your input

    Boat fish cleaning station ideas

    I purchased a 4x2 folding table from Walmat. Folds into a 2x2 square making it easy to store down below. Adjustable legs and fits perfectly over my doghouse. I cut a hole to put my knives to keep them from sliding off. For $48 didnt think you could beat the price, table is made of HDPE. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Best-Choice-Products-4ft-Indoor-Outdoor-Folding-Portable-Plastic-Picnic-Party-Dining-Camp-Table-w-Handle-Lock-White/150299151?athcpid=150299151&athpgid=athenaItemPage&athcgid=null&athznid=PWVUB&athieid=v0&athstid=CS002&athguid=466001f5-29985e8c-2963a94ae74d01b2&athena=true

    Spoon storage

    For those of you that want a special mate storage box but don't think the $65 price tag is worth it. I am going to try to duplicate the box for a much lower cost. Might not be professional but will do the job. Standby for future posts in classified section. Considering gluing foam to top so that LED lights can be added to energize the glow spoons. The hunt for foam is on Sent from my SM-J727P using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Kicker Controls Sticking

    Kicker Controls Sticking I installed a mew yamaha 9.9 May 2014. Just recently I noticed two things... #1 when I go to put it in gear it doesn't want to go in gear, I have to put it in reverse then forward and #2 when pushing it forward I have to push hard to get it to move. You're thoughts are welcomed and appreciated !! Gettin' Some

    How much room ?

    Was out trolling by the plant today, heading east. All boats were going east/west, except for one guy who wanted to troll south. I could see him off my bow in the distance, by the time I crossed his path I would say he was +/- 300 yards away if not more. I hear him on the radio alittle later saying I cut him off. So the question is this...... How much space should you give someone assuming they have copper lines out ??
