Well, went fishing today for the first time this year, used one of the first few cranks I made this year, and ended up catching my first fish this year. Man, this never gets old!!! It's soooooo much better when you catch it off a lure you made yourself!! I made a believer outa my fishin buddy too, or should I say "future customer" There's another pic in the trophy room

Great picture Jay.
I like the lure just happening to get into the shot and how is it that we couldn't zoom out just a little to see that, "I caght it on MY bait!!!" look on your face. Yes sir, I know that look!!!
When my son that's the shot he always adds a picture of whichever thumb is needed to block me out of the shot. Only 28 and he's a scream.

Jay , thats great, good on you, nothing like that feeling, you will still get it on your 100th, especially when your mates are catching nothing, for not being 'true believers'. Oh well that's the end of your marriage and your mates. pete

The funny thing is when I caught it, I didn't have my camera. I actually caught the fish in a boat, told my buddy I gotta get a picture, so I talked him in to going back to the bank, scrambled to find a piece of rope, tied her off, drove back to my house for the camera (just a few miles), came back and took the pics. I had to hang the lure back in its mouth, so if it looks staged, that's because it was. But that is the lure I caught her on. A few more like her, and I might actually be able to sell a crank or 2 instead of givin em away. LOL
