I just pick ed up 3/0 Mustads and they size up to VMC 4/0. I saw the broken hooks. Now I wonder. I'm changing because of a heart breaker now I see those. Geez!

I am still catching fish after fish on this darter I got thanks to Stewie that Chuck (linesider69) made a long time ago.

I went out last night to a favorite spot I used to fish a lot and was reminded why I don't fish there anymore, a line of people. So I went west, way west and fished the whole west tide. Got fish on the first cast on darters by Chuck, this yellow one and a dark blue mackeral one too. It took a while to fish thru the schoolies to get a decent drag burner and some other decent fish but worth it. I did not do so well jigging. I was glad to have a few poles worth of real estate to myself when this fish took off. Not as big as I thought it would be but that is plug fishing.

Chuck, make some more of these please
