View Full Version : Official Plug Party list and date.

10-17-2001, 08:07 AM
OK, looks like we have 12 people intrested. Sounds like that will do it. Now we need a date. I reccomend Dec, 8th. Does this fit everyones schedule. It also is the deadline for the plug swap, so if you are coming and joining the swap too, it's a good time to swap your plugs if you didn't mail them in yet.

In no particular order we have coming to the party:

Myself, ofcourse
Got Stripers
Mr. Pogie
Milo ?

Should will call for this thing about 10 in the morning? or do you guys want to do it earlier or later.

We could order some pizza or something for lunch, also there is a family restauraunt across the street from me. I know how some of us love food as much as fishing :D

So let's here it! feedback time.........

Sounds good Slip, I'll be there.

10-17-2001, 10:32 AM
I'm in! Cedar blocks all around! One problem I may show up with a deer strapped to my roof but then we have bucktail too!

10-17-2001, 10:44 AM
I'll take all the bucktail you gots...cleaned of course.

I have a friend who is a JIG FREAK! :)

10-17-2001, 01:55 PM
Dec. 8th may be a problem for me, but count me in for now. I'll know more as December approaches. Can't wait to get some more plugs..

10-17-2001, 02:51 PM

I promise to keep my claws in my pockets...:D

10-17-2001, 03:05 PM

Date and time works great for me. Do we need to bring anything Donuts? Plug Stock?

Does anyone use Western Red Cedar for plugs?

10-24-2001, 09:26 AM
Jeffsod - Welcome to SB... I see you know many of the uhh, personalities here ;)

10-24-2001, 06:08 PM

10-25-2001, 01:13 PM

10-25-2001, 02:24 PM
Should we bring airbrushes ? What about blanks? Are you gonna demonstrate some of the tubraid needles? AAAaaahhhhh!!!!

10-25-2001, 02:44 PM
Also, I found a small lot of cheap airbrushes in a dicount store. They are Badger brushes, just renamed and sold at 1/4 the price. I bought a couple as backup for cleaning/swapping while I paint, and they work well. There were a couple left, let me know if anyones interested.

10-28-2001, 05:06 PM
Hey Slip I got a lathe on loan and could bring it to the plug building party if we need another just let me know. What kind of wood are you guys using?

10-28-2001, 06:13 PM
Sure, bring it along. We'll all spin wood and feel good like Tattoo. :)

Pikie Mikie uses Alaskan cedar but we use whatever we find. Birch is good.

10-28-2001, 06:20 PM
Man that needle is sweet.........

10-31-2001, 04:37 PM
I should be good for that date. Just got to check on whether I have twins that weekend. Can swap with ex. Anybody want to get picked up on my way down?

11-01-2001, 07:41 PM
Smokey is coming with me. I thought I said that somewhere. What should we bring Slipknot? Stuff for building something? You gonna fire up the grill? You da man on this one Slipknot. Let us know the plan.

Got Stripers
11-01-2001, 07:54 PM
I think pizza was mentioned, which is probably better, since we will have a lot of stuff on our plates at this one. I'm bringing all my plastic stuff, just need a microwave oven and a well ventilated area....or a good exhaust system :). You have a good pizza delivery service Slip?

11-01-2001, 08:27 PM
Pizza Slip, aahhhhh do I have to:p

11-01-2001, 08:56 PM
OK BM, how many bass does it take to equal pizza for 15?

Right Saltheart, I just updated the list.

5 weeks away, here we go.

Man, it's gonna be a long winter up here. a cod fishing trip in the works and a plug party?!?! I just gotta think about moving south. Hmmmm, now I think I can just fit the Shop-Smith in the Ledge-Sled and it's not that far a drive to Rhody......

11-04-2001, 11:24 AM
Hey Slip now that BLOO is off the list can I take his place?:p Dont have any plugs but will bring chourico and peppers;)

11-04-2001, 06:08 PM
YOU SPOILED IT were going to be the "surprise guest"

You can ride with me....

11-04-2001, 06:44 PM
Just don't tell anyone, oops.
I have first dibs on the swimmer lips.

OK, do I have to put on an addition to my shop? We'll fit everyone somehow, but carpooling will help with parking. I'll send directions by email soon.

11-04-2001, 06:54 PM
To Late talked to John on the phone there all MINE!!!!!!!!!!:D

11-04-2001, 06:57 PM

That's right , I'm a bluefish killer.
Look he's got my finger! but what does BM do? he snaps a picture of course :)

11-04-2001, 08:59 PM
I live in Quincy and have an Expedition, anyone wants to carpool with me it's ok, I can take up to 5, providing I don't have a deer to throw in the back.

11-05-2001, 08:10 AM
Slip, you are the man.....should we bring food...or just money for it? This is a sleep over right? :)

BM with all the bodies in Slip's shop its going to be easy pickin's :D

Like taking a 9 inch sluggo off the hood of the truck, or like swiping 3 eel skin jig heads from the van, or....well you get the picture.

11-05-2001, 08:34 AM
Beware of the security cameras :)

11-05-2001, 08:42 AM
Slip, with decent weather and a plug close to the door, I can set up outside.

11-05-2001, 10:59 AM
Specialist how about a side trip hunting first?! Getting some jig molds 2.5, 3, and 4 oz. bullet heads and another for shads 1.5, 2 and 2.s oz. perfect for shads and sluggos in the ditch. Still looking for a skin mold and bulk supplies of rubber, GS interested in marketing any rubber?

11-05-2001, 06:39 PM
Yes sounds good. I always use slugs, but maybe bring some birdshot to provide security at the party.;)

hey Slip ,we met at shell point last spring and I've been lurking for awhile now. got room for a novice at this shindig? I've been tying flies for several years and would like to learn something about turning plugs. I want to learn how to make the old fat beachmaster darters . From the pic's you guys have posted have been incredable. Hope you'll let me learn a few things.

11-09-2001, 05:57 PM
Hi Jim, yes I remember you. I also ran into you at Pips parking lot and at M&D's in Wareham.

We have a pretty full house so far, about 16 people or so but 1 more shouldn't hurt. There will have to be some onlookers anyway.
I was hoping to be able to have a few setups for different operations happening.
It should be good to get together and meet some new faces as well.
I hope to have some of the cabinet jobs out and delivered that are bogging down the shop right now. Hard to predict how cramped it will be in 4 weeks though.
