I know...it's hard to think straight with another snow day pounding us out there. However, to get a few more positive and creative juices flowing let's have a question or two. How bout' it?

What new baits, gear, tackle, or line has anyone gotten since the water froze that you will be using for the first time this coming season?

I will be hitting the open water with a new medium heavy action St. Croix rod/reel combo for largies and smallies this year. I also have done some customized painting of a few Bagley's B Flat 8 jerk baits for muskies. They probably won't see action until fall feed bag time.. but you can never prepare to early!

A buddy of mine, that is an outstanding tournament bass fisherman ,has been raving to me about a fluorocarbon line he has been using called, "Sun Line". I have not used it yet... but he says it is the best line he has ever yet found. Anyone here actually used it yet?

So... what will you be hitting the water with in your arsenal that is new this year? Are there some items that you plan to get before open water season begins?

I can hardly wait!!!

Hey Fisher! I’m not sure if it was the cabin fever or what, but I went on a NetBait rampage over the last half a year. Love them Paca Craws! While I was familiar with most of the lineup, I’ve never tried their buzz frogs. I’ve been a loyal Stanley Ribbit user for years, but plan on putting the Paca Toad through its paces.

But I’m most excited about the Thumper Tail Worm. I’ve never used anything like this. Maybe the Lake Fork HyperFreak, but that’s a creature (and didn’t help me catch a single fish). This worm though, I plan on swimming some and pitching a lot. It seems like a great pitching bait. Slim and sleek, except for this crazy paddle at the end! I expect this thing to ring like a dinner bell.

Also got a nice order of NorthStar swimjigs, at their Christmas sale, and branched out from my usual white/silver to some more colorful options. Lookin’ forward to some fast swim jig action. And I’m awaiting the arrival of a recent (sale) order of his “alien” head jigs. These are brand new to me. Can’t wait to see what these are like up close. (NorthStar jigs are hand tied right here in Elk River, MN, btw!)

I signed up for the inside bass fishing email newsletter and asked Gordon a question. Next thing I know they send me some fishing lures.

I got a custom painted crank bait from Baitwerks.! and a sweet looking Jig from MadManz.com .

Gonna have to give this stuff a shot soon!

No way! Those Dwain Batey customs have been getting a lot of talk lately. I've looked at them a few times, but I'm not much of a cranker; and they're like $15 a pop. The Bluegill colors are just awesome looking though. What a score. Try to remember to do a review for us Logan!

I'm not doing anything new on the tackle front... I guess I am a creature of habit. I am, however, working a bit on my boat before the opener. I saved all my Christmas money and Birthday money this year and ended up with a few hundred extra (I must have been a very good boy, eh?) and decided I would add a couple of things to my boat that have been bugging me.

First off is some flush-mounted rod holders. Seems that when a I have a couple of fellow fishing people with me, we end up with people laying their rods across seats, leaning against the gunnels or where ever they can put them. Last year, a rod broke because of this so I am going to add 4 rodholders just to get the rods being used out of the way so people can have an easier time moving around.

Same with the net. I have gone through 3 nets now because it is always being stepped on... so another holder for the net.

Last, but not least is my buddy and I are going to build, or buy and install, a walkout on the tongue of the trailer to hook and unhook the boat. I am getting old and also getting sick of slipping off the 3 inch wide tongue while trying to hook up or unhook the boat. Not a big deal when it's warm... I just get in the water, but it can really be a pain in the &%$# when the water is cold.

Old age is making me want to make fishing as easy as possible.

good idea on the walkout webdude! I have gotten wet more than a few times while trailering the boat.

I figured I would share this lure. Sounds cool to me. Article here http://badponchooutdoors.com/?p=656



"A flat sided lure also tends to put out a more pronounced flash. Though a flat side lure can be unstable in flight and on the retrieve, Jackall has solved both issues with a magnetic weight system. Centrifugal force throws the weight to the rear of the lure during flight and the magnet pulls the weight toward the front of the lure on the retrieve stabilizing the Bling 55 in both cases. This all adds up to a lure that casts farther and more accurate."

Sounds like an interesting solution!
