Oh yeah....this retirement thing is killing me......

Got up at 8

Drank coffee watched TV til 11.

Wife kept making me pick up my feet while she cleaned floors.  I counted that as my exercise for the day.

Walked out about noon.  Washed wife's car.  I counted that as my exercise for tomorrow.

Added some chain to the anchor line.

Folded up drift sock and stored it.

Played with bait lights.

Rested.

Put flukes on lead heads, glued them up, and I'm ready to dead stick!!!

Guess you don't have a favorite color?[smile] Do you seperate the colors so they don't bleed? What size heads?

Head size- what ever it takes to keep the line as straight down as possible. I have never used more than 2oz.

Bubble gum was always my best color when down rigging so it should work dead sticking.[smile]

Why it worked I never knew as nothing in the lake is that color.

I rig my flukes different than you. I have the hook coming out the flat side so that the belly is on the bottom side. Am I wrong?

Last winter in the heat of an unreal bite I was going through flukes every couple of fish, I hooked them backwards and they worked just as good

I don't think there is a "wrong" way.

My theory is like Sunshine's....that is, most of the hits I get when dead sticking are "upwards" hits because fish feed UP and not DOWN.

I mount my plastics on a dead head upside down because I think (my humble opinion) that the fish are looking up and will see a "fuller" profile of the plastic.

Plus, mounting them upside down with the hook coming out the belly slot makes getting the body on straight very easy.

Once I have the hook through, I super glue the slot closed.

I normally use 1 ounce dead heads.  But I will (like Larry C) use up to 2 ounces.

In the past I have used large Sassy heads but this year I am going to try large bucktail heads because the eye of the hook is further back towards the center of gravity.

Anyway, that's what I do.


Bandit, I have a plastics "roll up" tackle bag.  Each pocket on the roll up bag has a different color plastic in it.  I have found that the pink bleeds really easy.

Bubble gum is my favorite color followed by White Ice then Pearl with green chartreuse tail.

I'll send you a pic of my bag and a bucktail head.  

I should just say "order 6" and you'll see 'em.  [smile]

Sorry I took so long.  I'm pouring a LOT of lead.....dead heads, sassys, and cohos.....

Here are the pics of a fluke on a bucktail head.  The eye of the lead is closer to the cg of the lure and will help it stay more "level".

The first pic is the top view showing my mounting the fluke upside down.

The second pic would be what the fish "sees" from the bottom.  More of a full lure.

Plus from a hydrodynamic standpoint, putting the flat on the bottom helps the lure "float" more in the water due to the boat and wave action.  20141113_101810_resized.jpg

PS:  I fish with my rejects.  The chunk outta the bucktail nose is a flaw.  [smile]

Do you use just regular super glue? Locktite has a brush applicator super glue.

I always use Krazy Glue.

I don't like the screw lock heads as they tear easily.  I quit using them years ago when speckled trout fishing in the bays.

They seem to be the latest greatest though so what do I know?  [biggrin]
