BB walleye lure revealed!

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
