Every now and then I get people aboard that really enjoy fishing. In fact I have had two different guest this year bring a duffle bag of lures and supplies to supplement the two trolling rods and assortment of lures I have aboard.
The two rods I have are loaded with 50 lbs and 25 lbs mono-filament line with a swivel hook to attach the lures. One of my guest was asking everyone what lures to use and we got all kinds of answers to live bait (which I don’t want aboard because it STINKS), plugs, squids, spoons, and more. BUT the one thing they all seem to say was that it needs to be red.
With this information I stopped by the tackle store after the charter and picked up 5 new and different types of lures with red in them. While I was there I found a great book to put them in for only $25.
I was very excited with this new gear, because my next charter had a 12 year old boy that the dad said really loved to fish. Well I was excited when I met him so we could throw out my new lures and he would have fun, but his answer was a very polite yet very deflating “no thank you”.
Oh well. I tried and now I have this unused gear just waiting for a charter that wants to fish. Is that you? 🙂
