(Meant to be a humorous rant, so don't get excited!)
After careful reflection and analysis of our 2012 fishing season I have come to the following conclusions:
1) I don't know WHAT I know.
I have shown stringers full of bluegill to anglers who laugh at my rigs and tell me "you can't catch bluegill tight-lining." I have caught most of my cats and ALL of my biggest cats between 3 and 4:30 in the afternoon despite being told I must fish for them at night. I
The seasons have changed here in Ohio. Falling leaves have been replaced by falling temperatures. The cold and rain (and impending ice and snow) have driven me away from the lake and into the basement where I occupy myself cleaning and repairing equipment in preparation for spring. As Terri and I sorted through our growing supply of gear we also began creating a wishlist for the coming year.
First and foremost we wanted rods more suited to larger catfish. A trip to the local baitshop/fishing
When Terri and I got married she owned a Berkley Cherrywood rod with a Daiwa Goldcast reel and her Umco 103A tacklebox circa early 1980s. This setup worked fairly well for the first few trips but it wasn't long before she wanted a second rod and reel. I took her to Gander Mountain (we love that store) where she chose a pink Zebco 33 spincast combo pre-spooled with 10lb Cajun line. Together they kept us both busy. While she was catching panfish with one, I was busy repairing the other on the lakeshore.
After asking off and on for many years I finally got my wife to agree to go fishing with me. It was our anniversary weekend (13 years) when we headed out to Atwood lake together. We didn't catch much, a couple of bluegill and small crappie but we had a lot of fun.
Next weekend she wanted to go again so we hit Leesville lake. She caught a 12 inch bass and I caught a few bluegill.
Next was Tappan lake. Didn't catch

I can only find the ones with the hole in the middle. Im thinking about using a 2 liter bottle with a swivel screwed to the cap.
where did find the ones with hole in middle. Been using jumbo noodles with hole in middle bought at Walmart this summer works good but can't find this time of year
