Hey David, It's the same ol' me. Finally got retired and hope to have more time to chase those gills.

I think there are advantages and disadvantages to slip floats. Slip floats don't show the "up bite" as well as a fixed float. And I also agree about the wind as well. When it's windy I prefer a longer stem below the waters surface and that were I prefer to tie my line.The thill floats are all pretty decent for the money. I always remove the spring and use surgical tubing and a rubber band in the groove. Does not cause as much damage to your line

Swung through your are this morning; went the 20/95 route coming back from Atlanta as I visited an Aunt in Conyers. Lot of really good looking water along that stretch of 20.

Hello. I joined the site then got real busy and forgot about it. My passion is fly fishing for pan fish, mainly Blue Gills. My main fishing ground is Clarks hill lake, Savannah River, and local ponds. Nice to meet you

"I've got a bunch of those paper thin ones too, mostly Luhr Jensen "Manastees" I'd like to try a three way swivel, with a Helldiver low, and a flutter spoon high. Hopefully I can get the chance."...SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT TANDEM IDEA ,BUT DO YOU MEAN HELLDIVER OR HELLBENDER?

Hutton spoons Haha , I have a very paper thin ,light one about 2,3/4 "  I can trying split shotting .The name and connection hit me just now so I sent you the link .I've never caught on the Hutton spoon ,I have only tried once before I think .It's perhaps a trolling spoon gotten down with a weight ,but flutter spoons that can be casted with wind at the back can be productive as casting spoons on light line .Tipped with a piece of crawler ,very enticing to fish and the extra weight aids in casting and better than using a shot .

Welcome aboard McScuff something I talked about 6 months ago. I know I have much to learn myself and hopefully with all the knowledge on this site we can become better accustomed with our electronics.

You are welcome....that is gray squirrel tail...combining my two favorites...fishing and squirrel hunting.
i have been fishing them under a balsa quil float and after casting..just gental p"pull" so when jig rises then slowly drops. also used it in a drop shot and similar combinations. hope they work for you

Yep, I will agree with the no fishing no fun part. I'm pretty much just getting back on my feet, literally. Recovering from surgery for the second bout with cancer. First time got my colon or 90% of it anyway, and this time got a third of my left kidney. Both times showed they got all of the cancer out. They found the tumer on the kidney by pure accident doing the follow up MRI for the colon surgery. Now it's just getting my stamina back. Being on the pure oxygen for as long as they had me this time is really taking it's toll. So I'm taking it slow. Went back to my part time work for about 3-5 hours for just one day a week helps, but man I come home and it seems every part of my body hurts....Lost everything to the Fed.'s out in Texas and my sister came to the rescue and got me back here with her family till I get back on my feet again, then I'm moving over to Mobile. Been scoping out some fishing sites over there around Satsuma. Looks to be very promising. Hopefully will be there soon.

hope so eric!  no fishing is no fun buddy!  I took off fishing for a few years to set myself up for my retirement.  now I have all the time I need!  yep-- lived and worked in mobile to!!  I usually stayed in Theodore part of mobile;; tryied to stay away from 8 mile area.  in theordore;; I was not far from the grayhound dog track; just across the miss. line.  at dauphin island-- I helped to build several different types of tanks there-- some flat bottoms;; and elevated watertowers..

Yes Carl, I'm just east of Pensacola, maybe 30-45 minutes depending on how you drive. And my future better half actually lives just north of Mobile in Satsuma. I drove a truck for about 14 years and have been all over Florida myself. But between the Fed.s and my health, I had to stop driving. I will find out this coming Tuesday If My VA check starts hitting the bank like it should and that will help a lot. Then maybe in about a month or so I can afford to get to the lake. Unfortuneatly, no money, no fishing. but everything will start turning for the better real soon. Any way wont be long and I'll be back at the water.

eric-- sounds like you might be close to Alabama point!  I have fished there many times!  real close to mobile; also close to pensocala!   hey david;; yep- I have worked and lived all over florida to!  from the north to the south!  st.pete; tampa; Miami;; the flordia keys; Clewiston; hommiassa springs;  you name it!  I helped to build the nuclear plant there at crystal river;; and the one at ft. pyrce!  use to be fun going along alligator alley-- at NIGHT!!  also built some beer tanks there at bush gardens!!   not to many places I have not been to in florida!
