    Yep, I've been subscribed to their Youtube channel for a couple of years. They do a really nice job and it's somewhat local. Really enjoy their stuff.

    Break off's

    Smart a$$ ..kidding. I agree, that's what is so strange. It just started happening and its an epidemic! I've broken off more in the last two trips than all of last year combined. My rigs don't stay in the boat or car, they are stored in garage. No .22 sound when breaking either, just went to set hook and no resistance. Thinking my line is just shot.

    I use the palomar knot exclusively with flouro and have never had a problem until now.

    Break off's

    I use flouro exclusively on my baitcasters. Mono on my spinning rigs. I broke off 8 times today both on mono and flouro. Last two trips, breaking off WAY to often. Never had this problem last year and I'm stumped. By the end of the day today I was trying to baby my hooksets cause I was so paranoid. Lost lots of fish and lures/tackle today. None of my line is older than 1 year old. What the heck?? Does line just go bad and get brittle or rotton that quick? Thinking about going exclusively braid with flouro or mono leader anyway lately. Maybe it's time to make that switch and re-string.

    Norris Freeway minnows

    Good info. Might want to pick up a box of band-aids too for emergency rod repairs...I hear it works great.

    fishing areas

    This is timely since I just went out with dada. I can tell you that I will NEVER tell anyone or take anyone to the spot that he took me out of respect for him. Every man is different on both sides of this coin. Some, like me, will freely tell you the details of how/where they caught fish. Some will hold their rod tips in the water when folks go by so they can't see whats tied on. To each his own.

    Hawg !

    Came across this picture of a HAWG I caught last summer. I caught some bigger ones too, but my camera ran out of film, so I didn't get any pics of those....anyway, just thought I would share. This one went about 35lbs....in case you're wondering, this IS NOT photoshoped!

    Took a hard fall yesterday

    Ouch! Hate to hear that. Glad you're relatively OK. Sounds like it could have easily been much worse. Hope you and your Wife heal quickly and there are no lingering problems.

    TV Fishing show on Norris Lake

    Would you like to share that info..not that I would ever fish it, curiosity is killing me.

    Anybody fished a donkey rig??

    Won't tangle of you rig it with two barrel swivels. Tangling was never the problem for me, it was the lack of fish connected when I reeled it in.

    Anybody fished a donkey rig??

    Haha...I've made it not work several times myself. But it does have killer action in the water and looks like it would be hard to resist.

    Spinning Reel Input needed

    Wow, hope this was meant as a joke. Have you read the post and saw the pics of the MONSTER smallmouth caught by the MEN on this forum with 'fairy wands'? It's about the correct presentation and tool for the situation and technique. Not using a bait caster because it looks manly. Just like a toolbox, there are different tools in there for a reason. A mechanic would never use a impact driver to torque a spark plug, there are tools better suited for the task. At the end of the day, you've been fishing regardless. Why would it matter what gear you used? I don't get it.
