BB walleye lure revealed!

6 posts in this topic

I once made a trolling lure for a friend using a troll doll, with a treble trailing in the hair. Right now, I think Bobby Bass should be banned from the site until he stops being silly....

Icehousebob, just for you, before you discount my lure you might want to read a little something about the history of fishing.. as for being silly, thank you. at least i can still laugh!

Their gear was Genuine Jack Lloyd All Diamond Trolls, a company that Hill, 84, and his wife June, 81, and their daughter Kris, 55, now run. The trio makes the steel and brass lures out of their Renton garage, as they have since buying the company in 1976.

"It's always been a home workshop type of deal," says Hill.

Jack Lloyd started the business in California in 1916. His first lure was a pewter spoon from the silverware drawer. He set off for a lake with the spoon, polished, its bent handle attached to fishing line. His logging buddies laughed, but he returned with a "whole mess of fish," Hill says. "They said, 'Jack, make some for me,' and it grew into a business."

BB, I remember reading about a wealthy angler in the last of the 18 hundreds who was fishing in a lake in upstate New york with a guide. They were trolling, meaning the guide rowed while the client fished. The client stopped for lunch and while eating, he dropped his silver spoon overboard. He looked down and saw a larger fish gulp it up. The start of the fishing spoon. As for me being serious, I've never been accused of that in my life. Keep being silly, I love it.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
