changing Strip Teazers for the 2021
season have arrived. Our soft
plastic herring replacement strips are
tremendous weapon to add to your
arsenal. Seen these strips
out-fish traditional herring in low
light and have video proof. Plus,
STs held their own in full sun
conditions. Glow properties are
outstanding. Durability is
measured by seasons, not a few fish.

Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
5/15/21 The reel facts
about strontium aluminate, Boron oxide, Europium
oxide, are used in what's called extended glow
colorants. 90% of the glow is used during the
first 30 minutes. Then, it dims, but can still
glow for many hours.
Glow J-Plugs were a staple for harbor patrol when I
was a charter skipper. This glow was not
extended and lasted to the outside 15 minutes.
Lit up, or glowed up bright J-Plugs new got hit
until the glow subsided/dimmed. That's when
the touchy harbor adult Kings would whack it hard
during low light. So, it's a delicate balance
on the right amount of glow that flips the switch
for full grown King Salmon.
Know on evening trips, when the fishing is done,
lines are pulled, and we're headed for the dock, all
my tackle has the right glow as night falls.
Seeing my tackle glow and it hasn't seen a light
source for hours is rewarding for yours truly.
5/14/21 New injection
molding company hit a home run with the 2021
production run of X-Glow heads. Glow
properties are excellent, but there's more to this
story. Having a white head that glows green
covers all light conditions. From total
darkness, to low light, up to full sun, these XG
heads are a reel-winner.
like we hit the lottery with our new company.
Thrilled to see their quality and attention to
detail. The hoops that we jump thru to get
this hard to get, costly XG colorant makes it all
worthwhile, ...when I look at today's featured photo
5/13/21 Tons of stuff
going on all pointed at restocking tackle for this
year and beyond. Out of stock is the kiss of
death when you don't have items to sell.
Yesterday, 101 LED UV black lights restocked.
This the best way I've found to charge glow in the
dark tackle and do it fast. Plus, being LED
it's easy on 3 AA batteries.

Today some of our 2021 Magnum Meat heads will be
in-house and ready for the machining process.
We were down to our last 20 SUV mag heads.
This is a major relief!
Working on boosting Strip Teazer production that's a
dreadfully slow process with hand injectors.
Before we can inject the molds? ...colors have to be
mixed. Then, heated to the proper temperature
prior to injecting. Hanging strips to cure is
a process that takes days before strips ever see
packaging. Let alone being shipped out.
Know today's chat is not as exciting as a double on
big summer Kings, but it's all part of the behind
the scenes effort that makes the double possible
with our tackle.
Can't be in 2 places at once is the biggest reason
I've yet to fish Lk. MI this year. Covering
the bases solo to keep moving forward is a bunch
