    I well remember those days -- when a Jigmaster 500 with a blazing 4:1 retrieve was the hot jig reel. And the old "S" glass rods to toss the Candy Bar jigs with.

    You were a gifted artist. Hopefully you did good things with that talent!

    I was to young and dumb to know I wasn't trained for art. Im bit better now and maybe BD will go for updated efforts.
    I am open to your suggestions for topics. Mudsuckers.jpg
    I went to LA Trade Tech. Frank Wiggins to be precise. I was a sign painter. A trade that became obsolete, almost, due to technology. I left the trade when I started a tackle store. The store was good, very good. It led to other things, namely real estate. in 1970 a monkey could make money in real estate. I still am at it.

    We agree on yellows, but I Do love calicos. A sunny day just off the kelp and enticing them out to chase a jig! What is more fun then that?

    Calicos are nice, but "What is more fun than that?" gets my reply: The calm aquarium-clear water of the East Cape, a floating log, and a nearby school of ten-pound dorado fighting over your popper. C & R heaven!!

    I like that a lot Jerry--and put it on my desktop. Your advice about changing baits--even this years bite, I found true. With all them Yellows out there local, it was ALWAYS the best bait, with the lightest fluoro that got bit, every time
