General Discussion / Re: Straightening 80 lb test mono?
« on: January 30, 2014, 01:12:58 PM »
They make a device to straighten mono. Basicly a piece of rubber that you drag it thru under tension.  Never tried it on anything that heave. FTU should have them for sale.
I agree with Joe.

I would think the relocation of the pivot point ( eye ) would give it a different action. Especially needed in deep pools. The clouser was designed to imitate a minnow in a school, more or less. Shallow running and swimming.

In some of the rocky rivers, the pools of water are narrow and deep. Your rod will nearly reach acorss.  You will be jigging in a sense.

Isn't that a jig hook?

Plug 'mov2flv' into google and see what you come up with.

I have a bunch of conversion programs but all are script based that run on my linux OS.

Trip Description: Saturday morning, we will be ferried to St. Joe’s Island aboard the M/V Skimmer for a day of skinny water kayak & wade fishing in the Fence Lake area. About 3:00 pm, the Skimmer will return to pick us up at the mouth of Fence Lake and take us back to the dock

Directions:  We will meet up at the Fulton Yacht Basin, behind Charlotte Plummers Restaurant. Once everyone has arrived, we'll load the kayaks and gear out on the Skimmer and head out as soon as the captain shoves off.   
About the area: Fence Lake is a relatively small and shallow bay (averaging about 2-3 ft.).  This combined with the grassy bottom keeps the water clear and should allow you the opportunity to sight cast to fish.  The numerous fingers and creeks should provide ample opportunity to explore the area and enjoy a peaceful day of fishing.
