trying new techniqe... what ya think???

5 posts in this topic

I really want to get into some panfishing this year but i got to looking at some of the jig prices and dont really wanna pay that much for 2 flippin lures! I had the idea this open water season while shopping at gander to use those weighted fly lure packages. These things are created to look like forage and I can get more bang for my buck. Has anyone used these before? Comments on whether you think they will work will be greatly appreciated.

I've never found any fly lures to cost less than standard jigs. What kind of fly lures are these?

When getting my ice tackle squared away last weekend I discovered that my box of jigs had gotten water inside and almost all of my jigs were unsalvagably rusted. My eyes watered a bit as I threw away about $50 worth of tackle. I turned to that online auction site, can't remember the name wink but it started with an E. You can find some pretty good deals for tackle on there.

the lures that I am refering to are the ones that look a lot similar to ball jigs with the fly tied on the hook leading from the lead head. the packages cost more but when you punch out the money spent-takle gained ratio you get more flies/ jigs for your money. still wondering... anyone else try this?

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
