  9. Wheres the go pro footage? Decided not to fish it this year. Good report and good job. Was there a small craft advisory on Sat. for them to call it off. Last year I remember fishing 2-4s with no advisory. The water moves so much at this time frame its tough to find good fish. The Big Shadow

  12. Glow frog, hi ho silver work. have few other colors but have not had a chance to use them.
  13. I started using the MC Rockets. Like Jeremy said. I bought about a dozen bodies to try out and the owner also put in a letter and a couple free bodies to try. Have a informative website and videos. They catch kings. I recommend u go with the regular size bodies. The mag size are to big and needs material removed to get them into the bait head. Have not tried scents with them yet. My thought is to put a small wade of cotton soaked with canned herring fillet oil in the bait head. hopefully I get a chance to test it out yet this year.
