10/15/17 Most of the
time during the season there's time to work on new
color combinations for potential new tackle
selections. Not so this season. Tackle
orders took off like a rocket in mid July and stayed
that way thru Labor Day weekend.
Challenge for the offseason is just to rebuild
inventory that sold out this year. Hardest hit
was our meat heads that flew out the door like
hotcakes. 2017 marks the first time we sold
out of meat heads in most colors.
This week we'll start process of ordering more heads
to have in the machining stage by early November.
The nose and tail holes must be drilled by hand in a

10/13/17 Lk. MI fishing
from Big Point Sable to Manistee, MI is some where's
between pitiful and non existent in the depths of
50' to 200'. Normally, at this time of the
year, there should be decent numbers of Steelhead.
This season, thus far, these fish are a no-show.
Surface temp on yesterday's trip was 61°.
Thermocline was sharply defined at 40' around 52°
that gradually declined to 42° at 80' down.

season is on hold. No sense in chasing fish
that have yet to materialize.
10/12/17 Taking the day
off from the normal routine for new product testing
in the design and refine stage. It took about
5 years in the thought stage to start on my spoons.
Then, close to a year to refine and double/triple
check the design before production made possible
with the new technology of 3D fused filament
New tackle concept is where I test myself the most
to bring your original tackle. Trying as it
is, this is the fun stuff enjoyed most!

10/11/17 The idea behind
new tackle is to raise the bar with better products
that make sense. Today's featured photo is the
new for 2018, Steelhead (Florescent) Orange Cupped
Diver Rings. I am proud of this original
product with increased diver depth with less rod
strain over the mega-rings that pull like a
Budweiser draft horse.
My 2 divers account for close to 50% of my yearly
fish take in a limited 6 rod spread. When you
have 2 rods keeping up with the other 4? ...this
speaks volumes! This is why I've devoted a lot
of my efforts fine tuning my diver program.
Cupped diver rings and my trick Super Snubbers™ out
perform the competition.
