    The Pig Boat was in the back of my mind when I was typing this up. I might give those a try. Though I may stick with the barbell eye to keep the hook point off the bottom.

    Thanks.

    Help concocting a bass lure imitation?

    Over the last week I've set my fly rod aside (gasp!) for the ultralight spinning rod. I've been fishing the cove of a lake that is full of nice largemouth bass. In the afternoons darn near every cast...

    In my haste to get back into bluegill fishing, I always seem to forget my frustration from the previoous spring in not catching the bluegills right away.

    I'm curious as to how you eat them when you don't fillet them? Filleted is the only way I have ever had them.

    How do you get the meat off the fish once it's cooked?
