We are fishermen - we talk fishing. There will be no gimmicks, no 'Informercials', and no excuses given for NOT catching fish. JUst factual, true information and reports, with pictures to back it up!!

Fish are dumb as rocks. 'Catching' is simply a matter of 'finding', and then presenting the proper lure to make them strike. Excuses for not catching are just that - '
excuses'.

 The Prime Directive

If it has to do with giant bass, crappie or bluegill fishing, I want you to be able to find it on this site. If not, email me and we'll get it.

IF FISHING
IS YOUR PASSION,
THIS SITE IS FOR YOU!
 There are 4 great 'truths' of fishing:

1. Catching fish is easy;
    finding them is the hard part
2. Dry lures catch darn few fish
3. The harder you fish, it seems the
    'luckier' you get
4. Momma always said to 'be safe'

EXTRA GIFT FOR JIG BUYERS!!!!!! We made a super good deal and are passing it on to all you Perch-Jerkers out there!!! Buy 6 packs, or more, of PERFECT Crappie Jigs and get a free pocket jig box. It is a six-compartment, flower-petal design that can be worn on a lanyard or right in your pocket. I keep jigs, split shots and small hardware items in mine. BEST of all, it's free!!!
Or, you can purchase it separately in the Outdoor Store on the PERFECT Crappie Jig page.




















ONLY WE HAVE IT!!! - our re-incarnation of Jack Chancellor's BASS Classic-winning lure, the DO-NUTHIN' WORM. Deadly on Carolina-Rigs and as a slow-sinking jerk bait.
























Our DO-NUTHIN' WORM is the same exact lure that Chancellor made so famous, only with modern construction materials/methods and a longer leader to accomodate swivels.
See the OUTDOOR STORE (the link is to your left and up) for details on these lures (or, call 321-427-8295).


Announcing - the ‘HIGH VIZ’ line of PERFECT Crappie Jigs!!






















































































Our new 'High VIZ' crappie jig series is in response to the many anglers who have asked for a high-visibility jig with light-reflecting capabilities. As you will note, five (5) have painted heads and a different head shape. The other four(4) retain the design of the original PERFECT Crappie Jig. The 'PERFECT' Crappie is is the finest of its kind. See the OUTDOOR STORE (the link is to your left and up) for details on these lures.


Why pay 60-70 cents apiece for a SENKO when you can get our RIPPIN' Stick at 1/3rd that price. Plus, the RIPPIN' Stick is better!!

The RIPPIN' Stick soft jerk bait has more salt content, better castability and control, and doesn't tear as easily. Plus, you get three RIPPIN' Sticks for the price of ONE SENKO!! See out Outdoor Store.


Jim Porter Introduces His New 'PLANING BULLET!
Clumsy, awkward, bulky, cumbersome planing boards are now totally OBSOLETE! Jim's new "PLANING BULLET' is a remarkable invention that provides the angler complete and total control in the precise placement of live bait and artificials lures.

Live shiners can be precisely trolled out AWAY from the boat (to keep from spooking the fish) and guided right along a grass line, shore area, or in-and-around stumps and grass beds. The 'PLANING BULLET", being small and compact, also funtions as a bobber to indicate strikes and fish-on situations.

The giant Stick Marsh crappie we found inhabitating shallow water shell beds on submerged levees would spook if we got the boat too close. With the 'PLANING BULLET', we are able to slow troll minnows or the PERFECT Crappie Jig right along the top of the levees for any distance we like, while holding the boat 15-25 feet off the levee top.

In the smallmouth and spotted bass habitats of our North Carolina fishing grounds, the small size 'PLANING BULLET' proved perfect for finesse Float-N-Fly presentations, with the ability to totally control the presentations and move the rig precisely along shorelines and breaks while holding the boat well out from the presentation area.

The 'PLANING BULLET' is easy to use and is bi-directional. That is, it will plane either right or left, as you like. All you have to do is flip your line to turn the device to plane the opposite direction.

So, get rid of the out-of-date, bulky planing boards and go modern. See our Outdoor Store for the revolutionary 'PLANING BULLET'.



Wow, the fantastic SWIMMING WORM is now available in the great JUNEBUG color!!!Go to the OUTDOOR STORE for details.
