Rare find

SCHURMY’S SHAD, still in the package!

UPDATED 3:45 P.M. (Link added below)–Nothing like a new boat to force you into digging, dusting and moving through eons of garage clutter and paleolithic layers of old fishing tackle. How coincidental (and possibly fortuitous) that my most recent excavation found something perfectly suited for our summer boiling bass.

Indeed, there were several of Kent Schurman’s “Schurmy’s Shad,” an aluminum body spoon, made to stay up on top, yet compact enough to cast. In San Diego for a time in the 1980’s was easily the most popular and effective lure for the task.

Clearly it would have probably produced far out across the country–if those Neandrathals were yet using spinning gear (more…)

THE RIGHT SINKER for the situation makes a difference.

THE RIGHT SINKER for the situation makes a difference.

Even my mere dabbling in team competition has forced me to make some discoveries for myself, rather than wait for the pros to confide (as I had for years). And one area that has been a revelation to me is the size, shape and weight of drop-shot sinkers–and how they matter.
