I’ve wanted to write this for you current tourney folks for some time. I think some of you figured out I tourney fished long ago. I did for a couple of years in the late 1970’s and cut back until I stopped in 1982. I started with a 14 ft. Star with a 40 hp. Merc and a 14lb. thrust troller. I later used Ranger boats supplied at no cost by a dealer. Anyway, I thought I would tell you a little of how tourney life was at that time. These were the times of Roland Martin, Basil Bacon, and Tom Mann.
The "Steerable" BulletBobber provides 3 dimensional fishing techniques, literally, breaking out of the traditional 2 dimensional fishing restraints adding side planer action.
The challenge in fishing can be summarized in one short statement. “To present a lure or bait to the fish in a way that will trigger a strike.”
It does not matter what size or species of fish you fish for or type of rod and reel you use to fish. Until the invention of the BulletBobber
This is gillster new to the site.When I have seen bass eat bluegills they are laying on the surface in a destress mode Why can`t someone who can designs lures make one that is weighted so it lays on its side with a wake bill
also on its side and jointed body. I have been thinking about this for a long time.Do you Guys have any pros or
cons about this lure design. Gillster

Let it sit for about 30 seconds and RIP it from the bottom. A violent bite for sure if they are there.

If you fish streams a 3lb Small mouth is big. For other bodies of water 3lb Small mouth are just average and 6 or 7lb+ Small mouth are what your after.
I've put together a list of observations and things
