Love the nostalgia, keep it coming.
Ah... the good old days!
Very cool, thanks
Like your posts Jerry! Keep them coming!
The cool thing is those words are still relevant to this day.
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.
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.
Very nice, give us some more...i remember blowing up many a Jigmaster plastic spool on those tough yellows at the Coronado Islands in those days. Still my favorite fish on the Iron.
I will do new fresh ones.imtied up on a project for a few days, but will. Glad you like.
My favorite fish to catch too !
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!!
Great posts Jerry, keep them coming.
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
TRUE! Love those Calicos too, tough little guys!! I like throwing many.. many... back, keep maybe one for a taco. lets go get some, C and R, Jerry!! I've been on just Calico charters, really fun!!
