More From The Weekend.....

"    Thank you Jeffrey for the reply on hooking crickets. I always hooked them through the collar, but the fish would get about all the cricket except the head and not get hooked. I will try the way you put them on the hook and not worry…"

More From The Weekend.....

"Jeffrey, I know you fish a lot. I'm envious of all the fish you catch. I guess you use a crickets a lot. I like to use them also, but not sure of the best way to hook them. Do you try to keep them alive on the hook? Any advice you could give…"

John M. Grimes replied to Smoltz's discussion Full moon and the spawn?
"  I know I'm late to this discussion, but we fished yesterday 8/6/2020, 3 days after the full moon. I cleaned a few of the fish and found eggs in 2 of them. Are these late spawners or do female Bluegill spawn more than 1 time a year?"

"You want a hammer drill with a 1/2" chuck, a battery with as many amp/hours as you can afford, and as mentioned, at least 750 in/lbs of torque.  Don't use the hammer setting, leave on Drill, setting #1.  I have a buddy that uses…"
