11/22/17 Have a great
Thanksgiving. New 2018 tackle pattern has
debuted today. A new companion article with
several new photos that will be posted by tomorrow.
11/21/17 Soon to debut
new article is loaded with about 20 photos.
Many not posted before. Hope to have this new
piece available by Thanksgiving Day.
Oak wilt disease has added a pile of extra work for
me this fall. Had to take down about 15 trees.
Oak wilt hits the red oaks the hardest. White
oaks do survive longer, but are doomed in the long
run. Long term outlook? ...we'll lose all our
oak trees in N MI.
11/20/17 2017 was the
10th year with my 1979 Sea Ray 22' trailer boat.
Made a lot of upgrades to a top notch fishing
machine for pennies on the dollar compared to new.
Enclosed cooling was worth every cent not having to
Thanksgiving week is upon us. Showing just how
fast 2017 came and gone. Hope to debut a new
article before the end of this week. It's 90%
done waiting on proof reading and minor re-write
clarifications. Photos with a proven new 2018
secret color too!
11/17/17 There is no
instant gratification in tackle manufacturing.
There's not one project (flashers, meat-heads, &
spoons) I've completed that has not taken at least 6
months, or longer. 1000s of dollars are
involved, so you have to triple check everything.
The colorants we use come from 3 different
continents. Some are known as, rare earths and
are very expensive. Communicating across the
world is a slow day, by day process. Where
each question takes a day, maybe 2 for a reply.
There's where I am now, pushing slowly ahead, but

11/16/17 Cold wet and
windy as we get closer to full blown winter.
Busy with get materials in-house for the 2018
season. The close of my 2017 season has been
anticlimactic. Not ending as I hoped.
Still a slim chance I'll get one more whack at the
fish before I hang it up. Not having a
last/ending trip is frustrating.
11/15/17 Firearms deer
season is today. This opener has lost some of
it's glory to bow hunting. Everyone I know,
who owns a crossbow has already got their buck. Crossbows are deadly accurate out to 40
yards, maybe more.

11/14/17 Good luck and
have a safe hunt for tomorrow's opening day for
firearms deer season in MI. Successive mild
winters have helped the deer herds around my place.
Was hoping to have all colors of meat heads back in
stock by December 1st. Delays in getting
colorants have pushed this back till early next
year. Some of the colorant we use are special
order and that takes time.
