Now, this is impressive...

Being that I've never been great at painting lures I find this seriously cool...

One of my favorite blogs...

Just another good reason why the Home made lure blog is something I read regularly...



As it happens, the mackerel rig combined with a spoon or lure makes a productive rig  for sailboat speeds just about anywhere you'll find yourself.

My new sling rig Part-2

I've been doing a lot of research into Hawaiian slings of late and, as a result, I just bought a new one from Ray Uppstrom who does business over at Hawaiian Sling.net...


It's a very nice sling.

What sold me on this sling was that it was not quite the same old same as the band was pre-tensioned which means that you have a lot more power since you're not wasting any of your draw territory simply taking up slack...

That's a lot of added power.

As it happens, I bought his new (not on the website yet) roller sling and I'm very much looking forward to putting it through its paces to find out whether or not the added expense is worth the outlay but as I can vouch that his standard sling is easily the best bang for the buck out there I have high expectations.

Now I just need to sort out a proper shooting line...

More about that soon come.

Something needful...`

Anyone spearing or catching Lionfish should be very interested in this...

Sting Hotshotz Packs from MAKO Spearguns

As more divers are hunting Lionfish, more divers are being stung.
MAKO Spearguns has teamed up with the reusable heat pack maker, “Hotshotz” to provide the best reusable heat packs for Lionfish stings.

Lionfish venom is made up of proteins that are denatured by applying heat. Applying heat to the affected area serves to help inactivate the venom and reduces the potential for it to spread into the bloodstream. It will also reduce the associated pain and swelling from the sting. This is why it is so important to have a heat source immediately available to the victim; the faster you can apply heat, the less damage (and pain) will occur..

Experts suggest removing any visible spines that may have broken off in the skin and applying heat (100 to 114 degrees F) to the affected area for approximately 30 minutes.
NOTE: Completely reusable, these Hotshotz heat packs lasts about an hour. After using, simply boil in water for 10 to 20 minutes and it is again ready for use. Can be used hundreds of times.
