  • Hi, my name is

    Up2Specks and I'm a junkie=Fishin' Junkie!! Won't address the number of boats/motors/rods/reels/tackle, fresh & salt/maps, fresh & salt/lure making, molds & paints & hooks & threads/oven/rod building ...well you get the symptoms. I can't seem to get enough of this obsession eg.- travelling/towing to far off(multi state) "hot spots", special knots, special techniques, special colors for certain lakes...this takes the topic to PLASTICS! Salt or Fresh no doubt about it, I have a proclivity about PLASTICS. After joining many years ago ala Chuck Auten and being introduced to Lake Talquin and longline trolling, Chuck introduced me to TnT and crowd. Well that's were the seeds of my plastic propensity were planted. Seems there was a thing with "hot colors" and TnT secretly told me about Wildcat, Bubblegum, Acid rain, Bumblebee etc., Stu touted(now Jeff/me) the Parrot, Curtis w/Bubblegum, Vic w/Monkeymilk. Well the twistertails then led to paddletails, rattails, twintails, splittails, creatures, tubes(hollow & solid) with/without minnows, nibbles, slab sauce, bladed, tandem, litewire hooks, red/gold/black nickle/bronze hooks, aberdeen or sickle, added split shots or larger heads, long/short line, spider rig, push/pull, single pole jig/cast. Oh yeah, add in wind conditions, current speed, water color/temp., cloud cover, boat speed, electronics, lurking eye ballers, 1 rod or 20 there is a mind boggling array of variables than can affect your overall effectiveness. There is definitely a correlation as to the "favored" anglers in any competition. Some individuals have a high degree of competitiveness others enjoy the ambiance, one thing is certain EVERYBODY likes a "secret"! Mine is PLASTIC just like Dustin Hoffman was told in THE GRADUATE many years ago.
