We will have to plan a trip in the spring maybe. Thanks for the comment on the discussion. Very thoughtful and well worded. Protecting the environment is so important; especially for our kids. I think the next time we go out (where ever and when ever that is) we will be even more particular about leaving nothing behind but memories. Glad you are as passionate as I am about fishing and am sure we have years and years to get into Bassmaster's Lunker Club!
That would be awesome! Check out Sebile USA. Bad ass lures! I was watching a fishing show today that was using the the Magic Swimmer, the small model. They were killing it! And I figure I am going to get a new Rapala: a Twitchin' Rap, a good neutrally buoyant submerged walk the dog action. That would have worked yesterday. I'll let you know. Making your lure this weekend I think. Any specifications? Color?
So...I was watching this fishing show and a commercial came on that would interest you. Not sure if its for real, or just a scam but check out this website, it might be the best thing for you. http://www.wavespinreel.com
hey louie, the best advice i can offer a noob carper is to learn 'the knotless knot' and 'hair rig' nothing is more imortant to catching carp than getting that sussed, just google either for full explinations and pics. Its very simple to tie and after youve done 5 or so you'll be a pro, its on the same level easy as a polymer knot!
