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.

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
