    Hey Dinger, are you very close to Hayward? I usually go up there in late may early June and fish Grindstone, LCO, Big Round, and a few others. Great Smallmouth fishing.
  10. Wooden Square Bills Blowing out at high speeds

    Does it blow out on the same side every time? If it does, it could be as simple as some fine tuning of the line tie.
  11. Citrus Shad, etc

    I'd say you pretty much nailed it . The only thing I can see would be to add holo foil in place of the pearl white. Kinda like a Fat Free Shad by Bomber. I think they also have a light chartreuse belly but I like your orange better.
