Welcome aboard Jim. I have semi modern electronics and I was stunned when I could see all the finder would do I just didn't know about. Hoping we can learn our machines find out exactly what they can do get out on the water and use all the function we have to there fullest potential.

Have some cob floats if you want a couple. I haven't fished with the gall floats yet, you could test one out. Send address and I'll get them in the mail.

Hey Jim!

Thanks for the response. Sorry to hear you wont be able to tie up for the swap. But its good to have a job after all. Hope there isnt so much work that we don't hear from you.

My bet is there will be a New Year Swap, so standby. And, if you have the stuff for some more of those little Cosgrove Poppers of yours, I'd like to know about that.

Peace, brother.

What you personally may add my be that little extra something that we can put in our own little bag of tricks something we can use to make us better fisher people ourselves.

We are all about Bluegill, Big Bluegills ( Bluegills, Sunfishes, Red Ears, Brim family) but not to stop there you will read about many different species of fish even some you may not have known even existed in the Blue Gill world and forums with many picture to share, but our main goal is catching that ultimate giant Gill so we can meet that special goal and maybe some braggin rights along the way.
