    Howdy to all. I live to fish! Fishing has caused me trouble in school, with Mom and Day, with my wife and every one else, too bad! I am 61, a farmer and I live in East Texas. I fish the Sabine river, Toledo bend, Rayburn well just about any water I can fine. I have three boats a fourteen foot alum, a 17 footer alum and a Boston Whaler 18'. I need every one of them. You can see some of the wifey problem I was talking about. Gal has put up with me for 34 years. I have three grandsons and one granddauther. Yeap! They are in training and all three are doing great. I get crossways with my daughter in law and daughter sometimes but hmmm, too bad. I don't know how to make those gals understand you don't stop fishing while they are bitting just to get somewhere on time. Well enought about me. I would like to ask a question, have you all seen the tape of the guy that fishes Lake Kentucky? I think it is called "Get The Net". I have maked up this type of lines but have not been able to try them out. I surely will have something to write about after I do. At closing I would like to say Hi to all of you. Thanks for excepting me on here. Good fishing to all of you, stay safe!

    Jstal, welcome to the BOC!
    Would you mind explaining what the video was and the type of "rigging" ?
    I'm all ears and am always, always wanting to learn new things.
    Thanks.

    I am not sure if this is the way to answer a question and I am not sure what Quote is. I hope I am corrected here if this is not how it is to be done.
    Mud, the video is called “Get the net”. It is about the poorest made video you could buy but the information is great. It is made by a guy in Tennessee that fishes Lake Kentucky. He uses boxes to put out and take up his lines. The boxes have rubber around the edge with slit that hold the hook. He puts 12 foot between his staging and uses rail spikes and floats all along the line. Five hooks a spike, five hoops a float and so on. NOW I thought this is totally ridiculous but after I made up one line I completely changed my mind. He uses small line and mono staging or drops. The mono is doubled and a knot tied at the end. Then he twists the drop and it forms a loop at the end. When he put the hook on the mono he ran the mono thru the eye and then put the hook thru the loop, than raps the loop around the hook again. This makes the hook stand outward instead of straight down.
    You put the line in the boxes starting in the middle and as you come to a hook you put the staging into the slot cut into the rubber. The staging is pulled until the hook is against the box. When you come to a float you just lay it against the side of the box. No weights, they are put on as you put line out. Let me tell you these lines go out perfectly. When you take up the lines you put it right back into the box. It does not tangle. When you get home you feed the line into another box and set up just as you did the first time. Staging into slots, hooks pulled back against the box, floated along the edge. Now it is ready to set out again.
    I do not know if you can understand anything I have written here. What I am going to do is take some pictures and post them on here, if I can figure out how to post pictures. I think you will understand better. I am not a good writer!

    jstall, I kinda understand what you are talking about, but yes, pictures would be better. Thanks for the info.
    To answer you about quote and what they are : If you would like to include someone else's post into your post. Press the quote button on the post you want to use. This will paste the quote of the other member onto your post.
    Example would be something like this:
    T-Bone: "I like to use DK punch Bait and shad also"

    Now you start your post.

    I agree with T-Bone. I also use winnies to catch'em.

    If you just want to write your own post and not quote another member, than just press reply and start typing.
    Hope this helped ya out some.
