thanks JL. Fishy we have to get together and swap ideas, lures. do you a pluggin rod or spining rod ?


For muskies I use a conventional rod with bait cast reel and 20lb mono. Of course, a lot of muskie guys these days use braid or dacron but I've always been comfortable with plain mono. I have only one musky rod.
I wish I lived closer to your shop - would like to see more of your lures etc. I too make custom plugs, mostly large poppers for surf fishing. These are easy to make on the lathe out of dowel sections. I load the butt end of the lure with lead sinkers and they cast a country mile. Don't have any pics right now as I gave away my current batch of lures to my nephew.

Sandfly........ooops didn't notice the ruler , they look kinda like pop'rs if you downsized them a bit the smallies would tear those up. They really are nice lookin lures man. You asked someone this question but i'm asking you , do you use a bait cast or spinning outfit to fish those?

Sandfly........my friends all say i'm crazy but when i lived in Liverpool on the susk i saw a female on a spawning bed that i swear went 30" there were a hundred 8" males all over top of her like soldiers guarding the queen , she was in an area where i had to drag the boat over rock ledges to get into , secluded , between two small islands in about 3 1/2' of water , i didn't try to catch it , out of season anyway but man what a fish.

Sandy and FI

You guys are my heros. how many hours do you guys have in a day??

Everytime I turn around FI has a fish painting a classic salmon fly and now custom spinner baits. UNREAL.

I swear you there is like 35 hours in a 24 hour day for you guys. Really cool stuff.

Osprey, i use a bait caster for sure, actually putting together another outfit this year. I also cast long distance from shore with an Alvey setup, some days 200 yard cast. Susky should have fish better than 60" some where. 30" is considered small to average. You got to go out for them..


Milletime, I have nothing else to do except run the fly shop, and take care of home. Its a snap some days. I invent too, when I tack a break from fishin...some people just have to much time...

sand

while those might turn some heads... they will also get a good amount of short strikes.
your material appears to have hard edges and straight cuts... work on keeping a more tapered look. They all look a bit dense, have you casted them? maybe look for some material (EP or yak) that will give a nice profile with less bulk. Also a wire loop hook guard off the bend will keep material from fouling.

good start though

There is a hole right above Liverpool off of rts 11 & 15 right out from ADA's tavern it's 30' Deep i saw one there once i thought was an alligator , sand if you fish for them that would be a great place to try there are many deeeeep holes and ledges. I"M talkin about musky here not smallies, another place i saw a huge one is right above the rt30 bridge before Breezewood , the area is called juniata crossings , rt30 crosses the Raystown br there , it's slow and deep.

THAT was definatly criticism , undeserved criticism at that , it's ok to think you're better than everyone else on here. Maybe what ya should do is start yer own religion.

never had a short from them been tyin them for 30 years dude.
I use ep but it gets tangled alot and you have to comb it out. Tarpon stlye flies that I use do not get all tangled up. Yup I fish them for years now. even up to 15" long. I started on muskies with the long rod in the 70's on Lake nockimixon and the Delaware. I have used mono loops on my muskie, tarpon flies but not all the time. Muskies don't care if it has a straight cut or tapered or even a mullet, they like them. Oh yeah so do Peacock Bass...
