Calling out Chickasaw Bill

Recommended Posts

Hey Pardner, you haven't been around for a few days. Everything OK?

 

Got a question for you about fishing. I Just discovered drop shot rigging.

Have you ever used it and if so, has it been successful. I would take your

word over the internet any day. :D

 

I am thinking about rigging up for perch over in Lake Washington. What do you say?

CB is alive and altho not kicking, in a pretty good mood today. He got out and shot with the Ozark Posse. A good time was had by all.

what NOZ , did not tell ya , is I shot pretty poor today , even for me :lol:

 

as to the drop shot rig , I am NOT real hep on it , I have used it , BUT , I think the stand off needs to be a bit more that tight on the main line

 

CB

 

ain't cleaned yet :o

any split shot will do the job , weight depends on depth and size of the plastic bait

 

 

I use the Palamor knot , almost all the time , only times I don't use it , is for small jigs and flys

 

too hard to double the line , on small hook eyes , I used to be able to tye it in the dark , by feel , not so much anymore

 

the nerve damage in the hands , took that away :unsure:

 

just be sure to wet the line , before ya pull it tight

pretty tight , about like fishing a Texas rigged worm , it is my thoughts , it was developed to fish above a mat of grass , of standing weeds

 

pretty much like fishing bait on a river rig , keep the bait off the bottom , where the fish can see it better

 

similar to bottom bouncing for walleye

Ditto what Bill said about wetting the line! I taught my a grandson the knot but failed to mention lubing the line before pulling it tight. He chunked five H&H spinner baits before coming and asking what was going on.

The Palomar is stronger and quicker to tie. Use it for Smallmouth Bass especially good for 4-6 lb line in clear water.

Going with the palomar knot on Fluorocarbon line.

 

Hook size for perch? 4 or 6?

 

Split shot for weight at bottom of line.

 

Any guarantees on how this will work?

 

I want this experience to be catching, not fishing. :D

Going with the palomar knot on Fluorocarbon line. Good combination, but use extra spit with the flourocarbon

 

Hook size for perch? 4 or 6? 4

 

Split shot for weight at bottom of line. 1/8oz.

 

Any guarantees on how this will work? Nope

 

I want this experience to be catching, not fishing. :D

 

Get some dynamite or an old crank telephone

Some Chinaman thought he could sneak some in for a special diet. :unsure: What was he thinking.

Kinda like the Copper River Salmon?

 

How in the world would anyone know what river a wild salmon came out of?

 

Once it goes through the processing game, it could be anybody's guess.

 

Copper River my behind.

BMC,

Use one a them bell sinkers on the end of your line then tie two hooks, first one a foot and a half above that sinker, the other the same above that one. I make it easy and use a little plastic doodad to attach two snelled #6 hooks to the main line. A 1/4 ounce weight ought to do it. Bounce the weight on the bottom to kick up mud. The perch come over to feed on the stuff you stirred up. Put a garden worm on one and a small minnow on the other. The fish will tell you what they want from there.
