    Give a googan a king, and he can eat for a day. But teach a googan how to kingfish, and he'll be dead of mercury poisoning inside of three years

    Great ideas, keep those cards and letters coming........


    How do you set up your bubble rigs.


    Anyone ever use pork trailers?


    What fish will be around the pier in mid-January ...

    What rigs do you use treble hooks on....why?.

    Thanks for the picture post.......

    Basic bubble rig setup:
    6"- 8" pre leader with a swivel on either side of the bubble,
    24" - 30" main leader with lure attached to end.
    The original designs used a white crappie jig or McDonald straw with a #4 treble hook.
    [img width=300 height=225]http://l.yimg.com/ck/image/A6938/693861/300_693861.jpg[/img]

    Later modifications were to use a 3" piece of bright colored rubber tubing (sunglasses strap),
    and adding a few BB splitshot inside the bubble as rattles.
    Also I add 4" of 27# single strand leader above the treble hook to help prevent cutoffs.

    Never used pork trailers (pigs don't live in the gulf though some visit there occasionally ;-)
    But a 'jig & strip' combination can be deadly on flounder and redfish.
    Can't beat a strip of FRESH cut mullet or stingray belly behind a 'Looney Jig' and drug around the pier on the bottom.

    In mid-January sheepshead are the most likely quarry.
    Occasional whiting, bluefish, black drum, redfish and a rare flounder or pompano.

    Use a treble in situations like Peaches mentioned (fast fish slashing at bait) like mackerel fishing,
    or on most fast moving lures, or for fish with a large gaping mouth (speckled trout and slot redfish).
    But the fish can get down right skittish when the water is clear so smaller hooks and terminal tackle may be a factor in success.

    Hope this helps!

    Re: Best lure

    Casting practice The other night in a drunken stupor , I found one of my EX-wives credit cards and thought to myself " What can I possibly do make her life more miserable".
    The results were I bought myself a new rod and reel, an Avet MX reel and a Breakaway HD-X rod.. This rod is longer than my trailer is wide.....
    This AM.went to the local football field to practice my long distance casting....
    Now remember you cannot get a birds nest or backlash with the MX MC reel ( it has magic cast).
    I was getting good distance for the first time out,50-55 yards with a 4 oz weight. It was below 30 degrees at 0800 in Atlanta this AM, so freezing to death, I was going to make one more cast and really put some muscle into it.
    I reared back and let that baby rip.....it went about 20 yards(at the speed of sound, my 4oz weight, in orange tennis ball). Then it snapped off my line, and the tennis ball kept on going.
    Between my hands was the largest birds nest ever created.
    At that point I just said to hell with it and walked back to my trailer park.

    It ain't as easy as it looks!,,,

    Re: Best lure

    Iv always wanted to get an avet.. But have always even a little hesitant also.. Especially when needing a quick cast to a fish that pops up, spinning tackle is the way to go.. But I must say, you sir, have one sweeeet setup

    Re: Best lure

    Don't take any of it personally. Ask your questions and be gracious and thank all who offer advice - whether you intend to take it or not. One thing you'll find on the pier, is that common sense and courtesy go a long, long way. The folks on the pier that don't need to ask questions represent a very small minority of the total number that fish. Although the percentage that incorrectly THINK they don't need to ask questions is considerably greater. oke1:

    Me personally - I'm never shy about asking what someone is doing or how something should be done. Sometimes you get an answer and sometimes you're told there ARE NO FISH IN THE SHALLOWS, or you might be told the Spanish are hitting on the end.
    :boohoo:

    Peaches,

    That new rig in my hands is a little like putting lipstick on a pig!!!!!
    It looks so easy, to be so hard. From now on I'm going to use what you boys suggest. You guys really have your act together, and thank you for helping me get mine together.
