    Brined Baits

    I wet brined a BUNCH of herring months ago.......Because I am heading to Washington in a few days I took some of it out of the fridge so I can air dry it and vacuum seal it for my trip......IT IS IN GREAT SHAPE.......and once it is dried and vacuum sealed......It will need minimal...

    THOSE molds are 4x as much per unit though......I am on a budget with my car payment so I use what I can afford......and these lures will work fine with the right retrieve..........I am also experimenting with making some that look hammered.......THAT is still a work in progress

    I have made a deal with a few friends now.....They buy the molds, mold supplies, and lead, and I will do all the melting and pouring for them that they need.......I keep the molds when done and restock them at need......

    Confessions of a Tackle Junkie

    I was thinking of getting some tronixpro casting reels from England....but they all sold before i could pull the trigger......They had a silver sized 5500 with centrifugal brakes and no levelwind for about $40....$52 with shipping...and they look A LOT like Abu's........

    Confessions of a Tackle Junkie

    I am a Tackle Junkie.....But I also have a hard and fast rule.......If the items availability changes in my shopping cart before I complete the transaction....IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE.........Won't be getting reels from England after all........

    Confessions of a Tackle Junkie

    Yup...you are a fellow old fart if Home Ec was still taught in schools.......I took basic sewing knowledge and ran with it to the point I can make my own patterns, recycle fabrics and even sew leather

    How exactly do you cast a conventional or a bait caster from a pier?

    if I had the time I would take you out and teach you but I am pretty booked at the moment.....your best bet is to get someone that knows what they are doing to teach you
