Johnny it looks like we got the same thing going at different FPD lakes.I can't believe the size of the gills I'm getting.My thanks to whoever invented the rocket bobber which gets me out to the secondary weedbeds where the biggies are.

Sure do like those fall colors......d

And here I thought that the "unsafe ice" time was used for building your masterpieces.

That's some nice cork and thread work on that rod. Did you do it yourself?

RT, I think your lakes may hold better populations than the ones I fish but pattern wise we are identical ....... deep weeds and very lite biters

No such thing as safe ice :wink: .......only careless ice fishers get wet !!! I have a daily routine of
fishing a couple hours,building rods for a couple hours,eating :oops: for a couple hours,sleeping
for a couple hours.......say hi to the wife and start all over :wave

You're just a colorful guy, Johnny Finn. You've added many colorful posts to this site and usually with good timing! :respect

Actually, your colorful "perch rod" compliments the Colors in those fish. I think you really like those colors, especially this time of the year!

Thanks for the post!
