View Full Version : Trashing used Bobby Garlands

12-20-2017, 07:08 AM
I can say this about that .If I find some on a dock laying around that look done and improperly discarded and its obvious it a fish ketchn color , and I don't have any in my possession , I just might .....
Tie up a tandem 1/32 rig and take said trashed used up Bobby Garland baits and drop them in to the water . And as it happens in many cases spend an hour and a half ripping lips with said wore out trashed plastics .....:Rofl
so careful yawl when you discard your used Bobby Garland plastics as someone like me might come along and rip fire out of the fish with them there thrown away wore out ,thrown around on the dock baits ....:yikes
Probably a better idea to discard them properly or else someone like me might be taking the fish away to someone else with YOUR trash as a Christmas fish fry present .....:crazy:
started at first light left at 830 am ...only kept 15 ,but could have limited pretty easily in another little bit if I didn't have to go to work ....
and YES several of the fish were rather large specimens ....
14 tp 16 foot down in 30 plus foot of water, drug extra slowly along the walkway under said dock .
never say never and for sure stay tuned ....:cheers2

I use them until they can’t be used any more! I’m cheap! Do you use a float with that setup?

Nice job!

Great job! Some excellent colors too. BTW, did you know that when they get really worn, you can just re-hook them at 90 degrees from the norm and they will be just as effective! I re-hook many of my worn baits this way. Especially the paddle tails (Sliders). The fish don't care which way the paddle is aligned. Baits produce a lot longer that way. :)

Both good colors that I've used myself. A bic lighter will hold em back together when times get tough. Good job Ketchn, nice fish too.

Great job Ketchn. You sure know how to tell a good story. I enjoy your them very much. Keep them coming.

Those Bobby Garlands weren't trashed - they were trained and doing what they're supposed to do.

no sir no float on the dock episodes , I generally use floats off the bank to depths of around 7 foot deep , my winter creek episodes are typically float venues

What kind of knot is that?

What kind of knot is that?

just a regular loop knot to the best of my knowledge , line thru the eye and run the jig around the loop twice and wet it and cinch it down , very fast to tie ,pretty strong and jigs perform nicely with it ....
