    From 2 of the lakes I fish the most I've found,,,,,

    32- misc,,bait bobbers,
    2-10" pay-lake style bobbers,
    13- jigs,
    7-bass lures,
    4-spinner baits,
    2-muskie plugs,
    3-stringers,
    2-anchors,,,,1-mushroom style,,,,1- home made concrete,
    a zebco 33 reel ,,,does work after a good cleaning.
    And enough lead to melt down ,,and prob- get me through spring.

    It's amazing how much $$$$ is laying in the bottom ,,or ,,on the banks of the waters we fish.

    It's probably a bobber that has its own scent, hook, and stringer attached to it.:smile2: And when it feels the wrath of biggest fish of the hour, lights go off! And major alarms to let everyone around the puddle know!:wink: Kinda like playing a Pin Ball Machine!:big_smile::smile2::wink: rollo

    Randy your doing good at finding items. Congrats. I observed a couple of men, below a well know dam, with a board with two nails driven part way through. They were reaching down the banks and pulling line, hooks, and weights up. I was shocked at the amount of stuff they retrieved. They do a lot of snagging at this dam.

    Congrats on your find Randy. Now that's funny Jason. Thanks for the laugh. And Chris I was gonna suggest to look at your avatar. ( No Offense ) LOL... But you beat me to it. I've used them in the past, fishing eddies. I prefer the noodle bobbers now as they support more weight and larger baitfish. When the water was low on the Shenango River up around where I grew up. we would find all kinds of lures and weights as well... Also when I lived in Lebanon, Pa. I was fishing Blue Marsh Reservoir Spillway. Caught a Muskie on a night crawler, with a six inch Rapala still hooked in it's mouth. Nice fish and free lure...

    I should go out and look for some stuff. I could probably find a few lbs of my own sinkers I have thrown in.

    Yea i have a few for some reason..They wont float with more than 1 oz for some reason...it is a 12 in float...so idk why it wont hold up more than 1 oz..without bait so ill have to use no weight to hold a good sized piecec of bait..
