couldn't find the fishing thread so I'm starting a new one Spent the last couple of weeks around lakes and rivers and caught a mess of fish. Cats, perch blue gills and bass. i used a lot of salt water stuff. used only ultra light poles and reels that i use for snapper fishing withthe kids. Snapper poppers were good for cat fishing. the weighted floats casted well. i switched the hooks out to a bigger hooks. was on a a 40ft deep lake and hit bass in the morning and evening on frogs through the lily pads which is super fun, but used the old reliable rattle trap for the deeper cleaner water during the day. I had one of those paddle boats with the bicycle paddles and would just peddle around the lake and troll the lures deep while jigging the rod slow to get the rattle. worked great. but it led me to my question. I have a pretty big version of the rattle trap and every once in a while I throw it out in the the salt water from land but usually if nothing else is working. Never caught anything on it though. Was wondering if it anyone who fishes thinks it would or has tried it. nobody i know has ever used one. also i used gulp for the first time. little fake salmon eggs soaked in it. I would drop the trap down with it and without it to see what happens. that stuff brings so many more fish to the lure it is crazy. it's like fish crack.
