Wing It Quick Swap weights

Recommended Posts

Anyone else using them?

 

I did for the first time last weekend and was instantly hooked.  I ordered a kit today along with some floats and light sticks too.  These are the best thing I’ve seen for bait rigging ever.  The thing I’m looking forward the most to is being able to set up the entire family to fish with the proper weights all the time, no matter what water we’re fishing without retying everyone all the time.

 

Pretty cool.

I have been using these for years!!  I never understand why people I fish with don't use them, but I haven't lindy rigged without one for the past 8 years or so once my buddy showed them to me.  I bought the kit also and then had a bait shop go out of business and they had larger weights so I have them up to 2oz.

8 years, eh?  Yeah, I had no idea they’ve been out that long!  But I’m not an ardent walleye guy anyway.  That could change a little in the future now.

 

I ordered straight off the website but see they are carried in stores.  There’s the lightweight and heavyweight kit plus the bottom bouncers.  I ordered the lightweight kit and bottom bouncer kit to 2 oz also.

 

It’ll be so much cleaner and easier to have a cluster of rods in the pontoon WITHOUT bobbers and weights bouncing around and tangling in transit.  Keep just the connectors on till we’re ready to fish and just push on the right weight or float for everyone as we bait up. :cool:

exactly!  It is nice to lighten that bouncing a weight causes when going from spot to spot.  I always end up with a sinker or 2 in my pockets at the end of the day and need to remember to put them back in the tray for next outing.  one thing that I always do is throw a bead on my line between the sinker and the swivel

Ordered yesterday morning; delivered this afternoon.  Now that IS quick!

 

Had to check out the floats and quick swap connectors.  I ordered the 7 float package with one of those small floats you mention.  I can see how it work well for what you were doing.

 

I picked up some of the line through floats also, as I’ve used them in the past and been happy.  What I was hoping for is the quick swap connectors being the same for the weights, floats and lights.  They are.  So I can fish the line throughs with braid for the main line (brass grommet on top) and quickly switch to a lighted bobber set up with just a quick cut and retie of the line after adding the quick connector on the bottom and the light on top.

 

It occurred to me how easy it’ll be to switch even the same rod from rigging to float fishing by just adding or removing either another quick connector or just a split shot.  So now I have all the weights I need from 1/4 - 2 oz, including bottom bouncers, and multiple size floats with lights for the fam in 1 Plano 3700.  And I can leave 4 rods at the dock in the meantime!  

 

Yah, I’m diggin this!

    • Affleck - Dazed Keanu - 1st Matrix Brad - Fight Club Robert Redford - The Sting Chevy Chase - 3 Amigos or Xmas Vacation Nick Cage - Face Off, even thought it's recognizably awful and the plot is terrible.
    • Ben - The Accountant Keanu - John Wick Brad - A River Runs Through It Robert - Jeremiah Johnson Chevy - Caddy Shack Nick - Leaving Las Vegas   2nd picks cuz they’re close: Ben - Good Will Hunting or The Town Keanu - Point Break Brad - Legends of the Fall Robert - The Natural Chevy - Vacation Nick - Gone in 60 Seconds
    • Find this on Amazon and you can use Bluetooth. It has 2 different outputs. 3.5mm and RCA:   Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter for Bluetooth Streaming
    • Ben Affleck  -  Dazed and Confused Keanu Reeves - Speed Brad Pitt - Sleepers Robert Redford - The Natural Chevy Chase - Nation Lampoon Christmas   Nicolas Cage - The Rock
    • ok I got it figured out, not sure its the best solution but it works.   I thought the 3.5mm jack on the jbl speaker was an output, but its an input so completely scrapped that. I was hoping to go that route so it would charge my phone at the same time.   So instead I opted for this option instead:     It works and I have left and right stereo and its not mono. It sounds ok but I may splurge for a 3.5mm to  digital input cable and see if its worth it.
    • Armageddon Constantine Inglourious Basterds(sp) Jeremiah Johnson The vacation movies   And I don't remember the name of the movie  but Nicholas Cage played a soldier in the Crusades who had to transport an accused witch to another town. Ron Perlman was his partner   Besides fishing, going to movies is another one of my joys in life  
    • I'm gonna list 5 Actors, if ya care to play, list your favorite movie that they have appeared in.   Ben Affleck  Keanu Reeves Brad Pitt Robert Redford Chevy Chase   *time out* Bonus 6th pick..... Nicolas Cage
    • I want to connect my iPhone to an old home theater receiver in my garage I am sure there is lots of ways to do this just trying to think of what would be best.   I have an iPhone with no headphone jack. Not a problem I currently put it on a dock with a speaker. That dock has a 3.5mm out that I should be able to convert into something that would work as an input to the receiver?     Here is the back of the receiver, its an old ONKYO that I had set up as a home theater many years ago. Its been collecting dust in the basement and I still have all of the speakers so I thought, hey I could really jam out in the man cave with some good speakers if I can get everything hooked up correctly   I could go 3.5mm to rca (red and white) and I think that would get me stereo and not mono?   Or could I go 3.5mm to digital optical or 3.5mm to coaxial? See all my options circled in red below?      
    • For this episode of the Duffman & Wanderer bass show I present to you the third week of August.   Wed is my usual day to get out. I figure it's before the Thurs night leagues and gives some space from the weekend warriors. Wife had a work party at our house, bonus water time for me. Too bad it was on one of "those" days. Sloooow. Talked to a regular, he agreed it was slow and chimed in "Two days ago though" Argh, that's all I needed to hear after only catching 3 bass in 5 hours. One went 4lbs, a 2ish, and a sub pounder........those little fish aren't usually where I'm fishing.   Gave it another go today...........short biters for me all week. Dealing with some pea green soup water, today was already clearer than Wed. That 4 was blind in one eye, seemed to be a lateral line strike. Maybe that's why they are short?   Had some action today at least, a smaller class of fish,  2.5 - 3 lb range. A half dozen, missed a couple, had two pop off, seen one.......20" class fish. Did the usual #@&%$,!, and casted again. I think I need to sharpen some hooks.  Still cranking, although I jig n pigged today for a tad......I never jig n pig. Forcing myself to try other things.   It's always interesting observing fellow fishermen. There's pressure everywhere these days. You recognize folks that look like they know what they are doing, and others that don't have a clue. I think I seen a 12" screen on a kayak this week!. I watch what people are using on a spot, and once they move on, I have no problem moving in. Fishing seems cyclical, some years are better than other's. That's fishing, hope you are out on the days when the "HOT" bite is going down.    Tune in next week for another episode.
