Well, I humbly post a video of a lure build that just didn’t work. Looks half decent but I probably won’t be fishing it. I’ll try again though at some point. A very humbling video ensues.

Fish got TV’s??? How ya suppose they heard about Howdy?

If it catches fish it’s a winner. If you are selling them, and it catches fishermen, it’s a living. Either way fun to make.

I hear ya. Put the boat up awhile back here in Maine. Going to do some renovations on it in the spring. Then see what’s what. They lowered the water in my lake a couple of years back to work on the dam. Fishing hasn’t been the same since. Kind of discouraging.

Great conversation piece if it doesn’t catch fish…...but some hybrid fish might watch old TV shows and go for it!!!!!!!!! That’s is a bummer about lowering the water in the lake. Might have killed off a lot of fish and stopped reproduction for a while.

cheers, Jim
