  1. well heres 2 that i tied. i used them all day. even got my first double of the season. and i got these on them also. 10' crappie rod, ultra lite reel, and 6 poud test. not bad landing the 5 pound cat. took about 6 or 7 mins.... lol and this was from the other day also. 37 bluegills 3/4 to 1 1/4 pounds. these jigs are really hitting the spot. -chris
  2. i got a couple pics ill post tonight. pretty excited bout them. also i hear guys talking about a foam spider used as a bobber with one of our small jigs under it. ever heard of that? how do i tie a foam spider. i had a good weekend of fishing. the wife bought me a nice book on emergers type flies. i wanted more of a wet below the water book but thats what i ended up with. maybe i can get some ideas from that though. -chris
  3. heres what i tied. 1/124th oz jig. the one on the left is the jig i bought, the one on the right is my copy of it. couple things i noticed 1) i need more tail feathers 2) need hackle on head only not body ( not sure how to just get it there... i must had the hackle on wrong end of hook.) pic isnt the greatest off my cell phone. -chris
  4. just ordered some 1/124th oz jigs unpainted so ill have 36 to play with. now i just got to figure out what colors where and how im going to tie it. -chris
  5. just courious if some one has instructions or a general idea how to tie this one. i tried searching looking to see if there was a step by step on it. but came up in the wrong area or just couldnt find it. im looking for 1/124th oz or micro type jig for panfish. i dont have a pic of what i got but found this and its pretty close. it looks like a small jig head or bead head..... well kinda like making a scaled down version of a crappie bait. below is way to big though like these but maybe add a little more or some hackle or something to the body. same line as this but dress them up. if you want to tie your version and post a pic id appreciate it. im going to try to tie some wet flys or bluegill fly's i call them. i know this isnt hard for you experienced guys but im still green in the fly tying area. hit me with what you got for ideas white,green,orange, or pink, colored micro jigs. thanks -chris

  10. not sure, went there over the weekend for a lil vacation. i stayed in benton harbor and i took the red arrow highway north like 10 miles, its off of what the sign said was silver beach. i guess its between warren dunes and rocky gap.... sorry not to familiar with that area. but it was neat and fun. the 4 year old loved the beach. warren dunes was cool too. the semi off the beaten path beach rocky gap road was neat too. it was just north of the light house. O and the fresh peaches...... mmmm good why cant we have peaches here in ia/il... it took me back to GA as a kid when i bit into the fresh peaches.......... -chris heres a pic of the sunset from rocky gap beach. storm off toward chicago it looked like. -chris
  11. heres a couple from the weekend -chris
  12. well i was bored again today, and i got to thinking. i need a camera mount for my gun. so i started out searching the net. i kept landing on the universal mount for guns and bows. more than i wanted to spend. so im going to build my own. its going to mount on my AR. im going to use it for my 10.1 megapixel sony camera with video. im using a weaver scope ring, chunk of a inner tube, 1 bolt, washer, and nut. its going to mount on my quad rail. its going to be sweet. my AR has little recoil, and the camera has a no question 4 year warrenty. so i shouldnt have any problems. hope it works...... well heres my mount what ya think? it worked heres a vid, you can hear grandpa getting excited in the back ground....lol just click picture and wait for it to load. vid 1 vid 2 vid 3 with burst they look grainy thru photobucket, but on the orginal end here on the PC it looks sweet and is a bit bigger too. since then i set the menu to "fine" mode. those are recorded on standard. also the multi auto focus was on. i turned that off and set it to single focus spot and unlimited. they should get even better. -chris
  13. chrisfish wheres that water fall at? looks neat -chris
  14. that turtle fly is the neatest thing ive ever seen. i wish i could ty something 1/8 as good as that. my woolly bugger dont even look like a woolly....lol -chris
  15. they said at one time, not sure if this is still true. but the rock river is the best smallmouth fishery in IL. it holds some great cats. and alot cleaner and less fishy as the ones on the old mississippi. chrisfish i was in princeton today. gun show at the fair grounds. but got my scope mounted today what ya think -chris
  16. ahhh, all i got on my tree is a topper and a few strings of lights no oraments. so its not worth posting. your tree is top notch, hopefully here in the next few days we'll go out and buy some stuff for next year. just starting out its interesting to see what we come up with to get by. we did go cut a real tree, and the kitten is covered in pine sap.... lol -chris
  17. lol yep kid is like 35 pounds 3 years old, fish was right at 50lb. live blue gill for bait my biggest fish. it was fun, cant wait till next year to try it again. -chris

  19. well folks as you know mack and i have had 2 really good weekends. we were gearing up for our 3rd hunt this saturday. well on the way home from work the wife calls and says mack cant walk and hes making all kinds of noise. off to the animal emergency center of the quad cities. mack some how managed to break his leg. both bones are broke. so no hunting this season doc says. mid Jan. he'll be back to normal doc said. so now its R&R time for mack. hopefully he'll get healed up and remember what to do. man now i got to wait another year to get mack back out where he wants to be. heres a pic of him tonight. well thats a season ender..... -chris

  21. id like to try that thru the ice tipped with a wax worm. it be killer on spring gills too. -chris
  22. ok will try to make this short. i bought a sony cyber shot 5.1 mega pixle camera 2 years ago. im not a warrenty man, but i bought the 4 year PSP warrenty from best buy $59.99. the camera took great pics for a point and shoot. (youve seen some of the pics ive posted) over the last 2 years the sony has been dropped twice on the concreate. mailed in and they re built it and got back with in 2 weeks. the other time during a jeep safari way too much dust jamed it up and broke something. again they fixed and ot it back to me. last week i was using it and the lense wouldnt shut. i mailed it in again. (decent camera im just hard on it and put my camera thru alot of 4 wheeling and harsh elements.) i got a call today from best buy. they said come on in under there PSP plan the 4 time means i get credit for a comparable model. ok i went in and couldnt find some thing i wanted for no more money. i was messing with a sony 10.1 mega pixle camera which cost alot more than my 5.1. he said follow me to the service desk. he did a PSP swap out for my faulty camera. so i walked away with a 10.1 mega pixle camera. touch screen 3" view....... :headbang: arrrr arrr arrr. ok i get home charge it and try to stick my 512mb stick into it. ooooops it dont fit. so i go back to best buy and told the guy. he said well that stick you got cost alot more then, than it does now. any way he said hed give me the $100 credit toward a new stick. so i paid $32 for a 4gb memory stick....... :bugeyes: :headbang: heck yeah so best buy set me up. twice the camera, more than twice the stick and for $32. they let me take out a new PSP on this one good for 4 years. but with a twist they now offer a accidental breakage planr for $89 instead of the normal PSP for $59. so i did that since they hooked me up on the camera. i can now take 796, 10.1 mega pixle images on my camera, or 1500 5 mega pixle pics...... :yahoo: so the lesson of this story. the warrenty paid for it self not only on the past broken cameras i got a better one. best buy hooked me up fat, probably as fat as a $2 steak. -chris
