For my erudite friends

Think that a Texas accent might be hard to understand, for a transplanted guy? You ain't seen nothin' yet.

Interesting article on Bass's memory.

I agree on released fish telling all of the others.

Decided to go finesse

Thanks, Senkosam. You cost me about $50.00 this afternoon. Ha Ha I decided to downsize and try a few things. Nothing as thought-out as your list, though. I already had an Ultra-Lite rod. The matching reel wasn't with me here in TN. It probably bit the bullet a year or two ago back in Houston. Most l...

Interesting article on Bass's memory.

You are correct. If I would just EAT what I caught, then I wouldn't have to worry about them remembering anything. AND, they couldn't tell their buddies about our secret lures! Ha Ha

Decided to go finesse

You know, all of my fishing life, I used to switch lures, over and over, until I found something that they liked.

I did NOT, however, switch techniques or sizes so much.

I have so much to learn, and so little time to learn it.

Decided to go finesse

Wait...don't stop there. I want to see one of the "aggravating" lures. This Summer I've gone from only occasional catches....to catching more than usual (July)..back to only occasional catches. Just above, I posted an article gleaned from another fishing site (BBC). The article contends that fish DO...

If you haven't caught a bonefish...watch this tape.

I skipped about ten minutes in the middle of it. It would wear you out!

Hydrofoil

As usual, we disagree on Foils vs Tabs. Since you do it Full Time and I am just a User... As far a loss of speed...of course the tabs contact the water. I said... No Appreciable Loss of Speed. My experience with the one hydrofoil that I had was a loss of 2 or 3 mph. Perhaps the setup wasn't ideal, b...

Hydrofoil

Let's talk about the balancing and stabilizing effect of tabs or foils. Both/either definitely help the boat, especially if it has porpoising problems. A hydrofoil is a single "pedestal" on which the boat is riding when moving quickly. Tabs (any tabs) are TWO "pedestals" on which the boat is riding ...

Hydrofoil

I've had both, a foil and 3 sets of Smart Tabs, on 3 different boats. Smart Tabs were far better, IMHO. As far as drilling holes, I'd rather drill into my boat (which can be patched if ever necessary,) than into my motor. With Tabs (any Tabs, really)... No more porpoising; far better planing at very...
