    Default Sunday Morning Boat Ride

    I recently got the Yamaha itís 20 hour service. That morning I managed to catch the fender on the gate pole and.....well got myself a new project. Couple of them actually.

    Went this morning and cruised around the lake from 7-10 am. Caught a bunch of little fish for some reason. She asked me to keep a few bigger ones for her to practice on, and so I came home with five.

    Yeah I was sorely disappointed, too. Plump and dumb and ready for the taking. Stupid gator. This man spotted me fishing, and paddled hard so he could catch up and speak at me. Then he paddled hard to get in front of me. That was when he stopped paddling and decided to make a cast. So me, the boat and all ten lures had to make an abrupt course change to avoid what would have been a horrible disaster.....for him. Highly intelligent individual here.

    Love my planer boards.

    Six rods out the back and four out the front. Most fish hit the planer boards, but the spider rods had some action as well. The fish hit every jig but one, with no color patterns discernible. They went for my hand made jigs pretty well. Spinner blade - no blade - no patterns. I am thinking reaction bites.

    Got my new mold but havenít cast any yet. Do It Freestyle jigs in the smaller size version. I ordered a selection of hooks in the various sizes stated. I suspect there will be a jig weight that I will prefer and hook style as well.

    Any suggestions on the hooks ?

    I also been adding spinner blades to the hooks on the other jig heads, the ones I bought. I found that a Drop Shot Swivel works perfectly, and extends the blade back a little further than a regular swivel. It also lays flatter. Check it out for yourself. I also ordered some larger size French Blades to test. Of course propeller blades coming, too.

    Well she is done with the fish now. Gotta go. Making seus vide fillet mignon for friends.

    Sounds like a fun time other than the bozo with the paddle. Lots more meat missing from that carcass in the pic, she is getting better.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    HAH......

    She has it made in the shade. I do: all of the grocery shopping, the cooking, dishes, some of the laundry, mowing, trash, dog grooming, etc. She does.....well I will have to observe a little and get back to you regarding what she might do. She decorates I know that. She knows how to spend my money and and is good at ordering in a restaurant. Her dog gets to sleep in the bed. I get her car serviced for her and installed an automatic gate so she doesnít have to get wet opening the gate ever again. I retrieve her packages from out of the parcel box for her so she doesnít have to get wet checking to see if her Gucci shoes have really arrived. She always gets to watch what she wants on the TV. I stop drop and roll to please her guests whenever she invites family and friends over. Most times I get very short notice, too. Deviled eggs, seus vide filet mignon, smoked ribs, and I do the entire Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter dinner thing, plus. Did I mention laundry ?

    So honey, you just let him know that he is gonna begin doing all of that...... and you.....well you will clean the fish for him.

    Your sure spoiling her. I do most of what you do except more equitable sharing of the dinners as she has her specialties and I do all the grilling, mashers and fish.

    She needs to look at some crappie cleaning video's to help her figure it out. just the fact she is willing to try is YUGE. LOL glad you are taking us along on your journey of figuring out this whole crappie ketchn thingy.

    My wife is only interested in holding the boat rope during launching and loading. She loves to catch fish but cleaning and cooking are not in her wheel house. One high point is my wife knows how to use the fish landing net.
