    My weekend starts now!

    Cold front on the way tonight

    College aged son is coming home tomorrow.

    We've got access to land with early season doe permits.

    Looking like a good weekend.

    Here's to hoping for putting some meat in the freezer.

    Luck, and the tides, always swing the other way again.
    Picked me up a 26 oz. 'Catchy Tackle' spinner jet, because I heard this lure was discontinued, so, I had no choice. :p

    What does one target with a "Catchy Tackle' spinner bait other than the fisherman?

    And at 26 oz what are you reeling it in with?

    For me, historically speaking, fishing lures were made to catch fishermen, not fish. Theres a portion of me that is glad i no longer spend mush thought, time, or money in that. A discontinued lure woulda hooked me too.

    I've caught way more fish using worms and bait minnows that lures.

    the other day i learned about vodka minnows - saving all your spare bait fish, and soaking them in food grade alcohol (cheap), and then freezing them - apparently keeps them quite "juicy" and pliable for (esp) winter fishing...

    Sounds viable enough to be a plan. Now if we just got "ice"...

    The magnum spinner is a trolling jig meant to 'swim' even at higher trolling speeds (about 10 knots or better) for wahoo down south; but tuna, mahi, marlin and other game fish may fall in the trolling spread to these and other jigs. I guess part of me thinks there is a chance at a multi-day trip somewhere on the distant horizon.
    (Wenches catch plenty of fishermen.)

    Funny, my mechanic saw my winch in the Jeep and mentioned he needed one for pulling motorhomes up onto a ramp lift for repair work. They originally used a come along.
