Side Imaging Fish Finder

I'm thinking about upgrading my fish finder from a Humminbird 565 black and white. I like the looks of the Humminbird Helix 5. There seems to be 2 versions of it. One with and one without Side Imaging. How important is side imaging in find bluegills on a large impoundment? The Helix 5 without side imaging show a kind of side view, but I don't think you could find beds with it. But it sure looks clear otherwise. I would love to hear from those who use a fish finder to locate bluegills. What I've…See More

Mail Order Tackle Dealers

After watching some YouTube videos on bluegill fishing and the Lucky Tackle Box Panfish reviews on YouTube, I went shopping today. I went to Cabela's and Sports Academy and didn't find ANY of the lures and plastics on my list. Stores around here seem to specialize in LARGE lures for LARGE largemouth bass. The fishing line began at 10 lbs while I was looking for 4 and 2 lb lines. So, can anyone suggest an online company that sells things like the Zoom Tiny Fluke, Impulse Slug Bug and Impulse,…See More

Much For Which To Be Thankful

This past Monday, Nov 17, the day after my 66th birthday, my beloved S-10 and I tangled with an 18 wheeler and we were over-matched to say the least. He hit my on the rear driver's side corner, spun me around and rolled the pickup. It came to rest on the passenger's side door and I had to exit by climbing up and out of the driver's side door which was facing the sky. I walked away with a small abrasion on my left leg just below the knee. I'll post a couple of pictures on my page. See More

dick tabbert replied to Randall Runion's discussion Adding Eyes To Jigs
"I to agree the eye are a big part of the fly. Predators zero in on the eyes as you see all through the wildlife kingdom and fish do the same."

David, aka, "McScruff" replied to Randall Runion's discussion Adding Eyes To Jigs
"Throw a boxful of lures on a table and the first ones people pick up are those with eyes. I just put em on, regardless, as you suggest. Always needed? Probably not. But why not?"
Nov 13, 2014
Bruce Tomaselli replied to Randall Runion's discussion Adding Eyes To Jigs
"I agree. I think eyes are predator keys. It doesn't take much time to put them on whether you think they help or not. So, with the little effort it takes, why not put in eyes."
