  1. Minnow Jig Head Question

    I went with #2. Figured dada knows far more than I could ever hope to on the subject. Should be delivered by Monday, looking forward to giving them a try.

  3. Minnow Jig Head Question

    Thanks dada and Tubejig. I appreciate the info. Just ordered 100 pieces from Ebay.
  4. Minnow Jig Head Question

    Is anyone familiar with this minnow jig head? Are these a good choice to use with 2" Bobby Garland baby shad baits for crappie in East Tenn? 1/16 MINNOW JIG HEADS MATZUO RED SICKLE 100 PK BARB COLLAR CRAPPIE PERCH LURE What about hook size? They come in 2, 4, or 6.

  6. DIY Casting Deck

    Hmmmm.....how many secret golden crappie holes on Douglas would you be willing to trade?
  7. DIY Casting Deck

    Thanks. Being so close to Leadvale, it would be a dream to upgrade to a 40 HP jet.
  8. DIY Casting Deck

    For sure. Needing a place for tackle and other gear was a big motivation.
  9. About a year ago I bought a 1988 14' Carolina Skiff from my neighbor. I added my own casting deck. Below you can see some of the "before" and "work in progress" images. Just wanted to share for those who may be thinking of doing something similar. The 9.9 HP motor doesn't move it very fast, so I rarely go more than a mile from wherever I put it. Since these pics, I added a 38 lb Minn Kota tiller trolling motor to the bow. In addition to upgrading the motor, there are other things I plan to add in the near future. For now, I'm enjoying the heck out it.
  10. Good deal. Drawings would do a world of good. I'm curious to see how he did the linkage/springs.
  11. Nina Creek Boat Ramp - Douglas

    A long cold day for sure. Launched at 7:45 AM. Had lines in the water for 10 hours. Took 8 hours to catch my first and only crappie, throwback. Safe to say my worst day ever on Douglas/Nina Creek. Started 18' foot deep water on edge of main channel. From deep to shallow, water in the mid-fifties, back and forth, crappie just not there. For the record, looks like these small boats can get in Nina with the lake level at 964'. (Just my opinion) 9.9 HP long shaft.
  12. Nina Creek Boat Ramp - Douglas

    Going to give Nina ramp a try in the morning. Water is on the rise again. 964' right now.
  13. Berkley Braid Knot?

    What a great tutorial. 22 seconds animated. It would be nice if they did other tutorials in that format. Thanks for sharing.
  14. VaMason. Thanks for the info. I'd never heard of the device. Checked out YouTube today and they had several videos showing and explaining how they work. My boat/motor isn't big enough to need such a thing but its still something I'll start to play with.

    My wife and I walked down to the new dock a couple of weeks ago. We were very impressed. Plenty of elbow room with comfortable chairs. A great place to sit and relax and enjoy the lake views for a while. The dock feels almost too nice to fish from. But I could not resist, tried vertical jigging for a while but no bites. Kudos to the city of Dandridge and whoever else is responsible for making that project happen.
