I'm making up my supply for the fall. If anyone is interested in buying some I can make extras. I make mine out of 20 lb. Fluorocarbon and I also make some out of 30 lb. , that I use when the bluefish and ladyfish are thick. I won't be shipping any, but if you are local I can meet up anywhere from Robertsdale to pensacola. The leaders will be $3.00 a piece for the ones with just beads.For the ones with corks it will be $3.50. I make several different color options. 251-747-3095.

What about your secret bait? Got any of that for sale?
The livers quit working ? Lol. You know what my secret bait is ! But I can go buy you a Pack and autograph it for you for an extra dollar. You need to go with me one day so I can make a fishbites believer out of you.

We need to start a beach "charter" service.... we supply rods, rigs, and spots for a small fee. I've been asked about it a lot. I do Pcola, you do Jbeach!

I have seriously considered it . My wife and I have discussed it along with the idea of turning commercial with a hook and line commercial license. While it makes sense to do something that you are good at and enjoy...... I don't know if by making it into a job ,wouldn't destroy the love and enjoyment that I find while doing it. I'm not saying that I may not wind up doing it, but so far I have managed to talk myself out of it. We need to get together one day and go catch some. Maybe we'll discuss this some more.

What do you mean by "pompano leaders"? I am interested but I need to know exactly what it is you're selling. I can get them in November when I visit.

Sounds like a good retirement job for you Russ. Youre lucky you live in a place where you can fish year around, except for a few weeks in the very coldest winters and some summer stretches when weed is problematic.

They're just 2 drop leaders made out of fluorocarbon. I make some for fishing with fishbites and some for fishing with sandfleas or peeled shrimp. I believe that on the third page of this section you can find pictures of these leaders under the title "Pompano leader pegboard ". I'm not trying to make a killing off of these leaders nor do I want to do them all the time. It just doesn't take me very long to make all I need for the season, while watching tv. Tying leaders for the pompano run is kinda the equivalent "for me "of all the hunters hanging stands and target practicing before the season opens . Getting pumped up for it ! I've probably tied a hundred since I've posted this thread. Lol. I'm not one to keep fishing the same leader until it breaks. I'll put a new one on in a heartbeat if it starts looking a little tattered or worn. So..... I tie plenty !

Just built a leader board of my own off your plans. I think it took me longer to put 8 or so nails in that board than it did to make the first 5 leaders!
Curious what you do differently between the leaders for Fishbites vs. shrimp/sand fleas?

I don't add the bright little corks to my fish bite leaders. The fishbites have plenty of bright color to attract them from a distance. ...so there is really no need to add anymore flash to the leader. For the leaders that I use with sandfleas or peeled shrimp I add a bright little cork above the hooks.

Ok I will go and see if I can find it. When you said leader I was thinking leader material. Sounds like you mean the rig with hooks and all.

I want to buy some pomp rigs but I also need some rigs with smaller circle hooks (maybe 1/0) for Whiting on my short rod. Can you make me 10 of each? Stick some flashy beads (you pick the colors) on all of them just in case the pomps come up close.

I'll go with a variety pack. Some of all my color options. 10 with the smaller hooks and 10 with my 3/0s. Do you want any with corks or just beads ?
