Shoot... I couldn't even draw your attention away long enough Saturday to slide some away along the table when you stopped by to say hi! ;D

Good to see you again! You really do have some talent there!

Yeah... never go by what I say when I'm sleep deprived (which is much of the time). Sometimes I'm just repeating the things everyone else is saying just to say something... bad habit I need to break. The best part of being at the shows during cabin fever season is talking to other anglers.

I'm well aware of the concept of 'free' as websites are 'free' right? Maybe unless you run software the cheap hosts won't let you run and you need to BUY something with a lot more horsepower than share hosting... Leasing a web server that runs everything isn't cheap... but we all have to have something to do with our time.

Those big, bright-colored blade baits are wild. Look like something from the 'Color C'lector' or however that thing was spelled. I just remember it almost always told me to throw green almost everywhere in Michigan...

Color-C-Lector …. I remember those since I had one too... LOL... It suggested two different colors at the same time. One on the left side of the boat, and one on the right... LOL... I lost confidence in it right away. I sold it or gave it away for free to someone.  8) I must have been 15-16yrs old.

Ha Ha  color c lector...didn't own one but I remember them. But, I;ve got that beat..i'm looking at the (in pristine condition mind you), the TR-VII  Fish Call as I write this. My dad bought it in the early 70's. You gotta see this thing. It's a 4" clear plastic capsule that has maybe 30' of wire leading to a hand control. Evidently this capsule has a light, emits "sonic sound waves" in the "desired" 10 to 100 cycle range, and a place to put the fish attracting pellets. (included) What a hoot! I don't think we ever even tried it out...

I wonder if that is the same 'fish call' we bought when I was still a young Irish lad in the early 70's?? This has to be around 1970-72... I remember we dropped it down a hole one day while ice fishing somewhere in the Flint to Pontiac area.

All the 'adult' men-folk were talking or something a few feet away but I was watching that hole! Something was bound to happen!! Suddenly, the BIGGEST BASS I'd ever seen swam right through my view down that hole!! I practically swallowed my tongue and tripped over my own feet trying to shout to the 'adults' to, "come quick!! Giant fish in the hole!!! HUGE!!!"

Of course, no 'adult' was going to pay attention to just a kid... I was shouting for my dad at least. Finally... he turned around and said something like, "what are you yelling about?" I tried to explain too fast about the GIANT bass that I'd just seen swim through the cone of water below. I remember we were also in pretty shallow water at the time. He listened just long enough to hear me stammer about Big Fish swimming around the new fish call before shaking his head while laughing to all the 'men-folk' about 'that kid and his imagination.'

Ha ha ha… kids, right... shaking their heads in their mirth... and the men-folk went back to talking about whatever men-folk talk about without another second of attention to the little kid who was trying to get his line untangled from around the new fish call because he was so excited he couldn't pull it out of the water before trying to catch the Giant Bass on a tiny hook and bait, though the kid tried to pull up the fish call, then remembered the fish might leave if the fish call wasn't down there, then remembered he couldn't see the fish anymore, then remembered he was tangling his line on the fish call cord and would probably break off the Giant Fish even if he hooked it, then remembered fish swim and who knows where it was now that he wasted precious seconds trying to convince the 'adults' there was a Giant Fish down there...

In the end, I felt like throwing my tiny ice pole down the hole and sitting on the ice in frustration... but I'm a redhead. We can be stubborn. I thought you can't see very far down an ice hole... that Giant Fish might be only a few feet away... maybe sitting under the men-folk listening to their 'adult' stories (whatever those are...)

Who needs adults!?! I pulled up that fish call and commenced to FISHING!! I was going to catch that Giant Fish. I hardly even thought about how if I caught the Giant Fish that would show them!!! No... I just WANTED to catch that fish!!

I'm still trying to catch it... one of these days... 'that kid and his imagination...' I don't care if no one believes me... I SAW IT!! It's down there... we'll see who's laughing then...

Wonder what ever happened to that fish call... I think it got tossed on a back shelf because "it doesn't work." Though, I know one person (me) who's always wondered... maybe it DOES work!?!

But not the color selector - those don't work... though... I do throw lots of green to this day... and sometimes red (because once in a great while it would shock me and say red instead of green...)

I'm curious what kind of action those fancy minnow head blades have verses the more traditional type head you showed in the 1st set of pictures?

The larger body has a thump instead of quick vibe. These heads allow the bait to stand up on the bottom at times.  They swim much more realistic as well.

That does sound intriguing. Could maybe even use them as a lipless crank (no rattle, but sometimes that's good?). I've tried that a few times with small blade baits in the past with unexciting results.

The bigger ones like I make have more flash, move more water/vibration, and actually jingle/rattle very loud from the bigger hooks and bigger body. Almost like a bell.
