    I wish it were so. The controls don't work (settings, flash off, fine detail, etc.) It's done and in the can but thanks for the suggestion along with rice-in-a-bag someone told me to try.

    The problem I had today on this one lake is that the weeds haven't grown much yet from the bottom and on a bright sunny day not too many places for fish to relate to. Water temperature dropped 3...
  3. Tip to those that take a lot of digital pictures like I do

    Do not let the camera get wet!
    I fished a lake from a metal dock that slowly started to sink not having been secured yet by the park. Bad enough my shoes and small tackle box started filling with...
  4. Does any of you like fishing on bright sunny days with no breeze or clouds?

    Not that I haven't done ok on those days but do far better with a bit cloud cover and a light breeze.

    Proven wrong time and again. On moonless nights fish can and do feed. In the lab, blind fish can feed using the lateral line as they do at night. Not much (color) to see under those conditions.

    That's the beauty of catching fish. There are few rules that apply to all waters - only facts that describe the catch that are not universal to all situations.

    Never found color important except when it comes to water clarity. In algae stained water color brightness can make a difference much more than hue. Confidence in lures includes a limited color...

    Picture of one or pictures of many fish caught this week. We caught 115 fish/3 different species yesterday with me catching near 1/2. Got a lot of shots.

    It's caught a *#% load of fish! With sticks that small, a light jig gives the lure action on the drop or rod-tip quivered at mid depth.

    Thanks Bob. PM me your address and I'll send you a few innovations - if interested.
  16. For me, it's the challenge of catching fish on new ideas

    There's nothing wrong with using a few confidence baits that do well in most waters and seasons, but I need to test new and retest old lure designs and ideas. I get a WOW! feeling when they catch...
