This System is Slick: Real Slick

Been tying for a couple of hours a night, Joe's system is so slick. When I showed my wife, her comment "well you should of asked me" about the bobbin method, apparently they use it in sewing.

So far been doing bead patterns with 5mm with 30# line, you will figure out you can't loop the line and push the loop through the eye of the bead. Need to thread the line individually and run to the end of the loop.

Will see what happens when I make a few with 4mm beads for smaller blades.......

Fun to do when watching tv with my wife like last evening "The Bachelor" and again tonight I guess.
Trying to figure out if I am supposed to laugh or be sad.

rps I have created an alternative. I live on the lake I fish. If something needs a change, I come in to the house and tie it for later that day or the next.

Gregking I agree, those clevis's are awesome. Usually the river I can run with one rig all day if that's what's working. Other places that are lakes with sunken trees and rocks I will run through 20 a day. When I got up to 6 in the boat I don't stop and back up if some one gets snagged. So if you loose 20 per day and I'm supplying for basically myself, one daughter and my dad I loose a lot of inventory a day. We don't loose many BB. Which is fine cause I will usually have to tie dads on for him, just can't see the small holes anymore. My 13 year old daughter helps me out with my dad.

I don't mind loosing rigs as long as I have more in the boat at that time. To waste time durning the winter months I build rigs. And drink beer.

REW I have at least one harness in the boat.

Why do you need more than one? Figure out what the fish want before you go fishing and then bring that harness.

Of course I am kidding, but if you use the plastic clevis that lets you switch blades, a half dozen harnesses is generally all that one needs.

I assume that you don't tear them off or have them break off, so replacements are only needed if one breaks which should seldom happen.

If you don't like the color, snap off the blade and replace it with a different one.

Gregking I have a couple of answers, you asked worm rigs. I have about 100 death hook rigs in about 5 different colors. Now spinner rigs, I make all mine with quick change blade clevis, have different size line and hooks, different colors, 1 hook and 2 hook rigs. All depends on where I am fishing. Those I have about 500

Edit: I supply both daughters ( only 1 really fishes with me) and I supply my dad. I figured for the first 10 years of my life he made rigs for me when I was to young so I make his since he can't see those small beads anymore.

I also have about 50 pre-made I have bought of have been given. I Don't use them. Speaking of those does mono rot after 12 years if its just sitting in bags?

simple question

this is not hard to answer " all of them"
02-14-2013 06:26 AM
walleyehunterX I carry 100 plus not including what my partner brings and we dont troll spinner rigs very often. I dont think you ever can have enough tackle with you so we bring plenty. We easily have 1000 crank bait s on board because this is one of our primary techniques. Organizing it all so its effiecent is the trick.

Thanks for the heads up on Joe's system. I love that! I'm going to do try that out.

I was putting off tying up harnesses, because with 4 animals in the house and working with 5 foot lengths of mono, it's hard to keep the cats off of them. lol

This will work so much easier.
