Tipi's and Bassin'...
Al Lindner has been pretty well my main Fishing Hero for over three decades now and I'm still totally amazed at what this man has done, in the World of Fishing! I bought this sweet little Bassin' Book Bassin' with Al...
a number of years ago and it's helped me uncover many of the mysteries of how to catch Bass, many times. :-) I recommend this little pocketbook to any serious Bass Fisherman, anywhere! It has helped a lot of people catch a lot of Bass. :-)
I remember when Al first told us all about "back-trolling" and how you gained boat and lure control, using it, he opened up a few doors and channels in my mind about this whole Fishing thing. :-) The neat little plug in these pictures is the first crank-bait/plug, that I ever worked on to help make it catch more fish for me. It's an old Heddon Prowler, a floater diver lure which you can't even buy anymore, that I've re-hooked, with a single, treble hook on the belly hanger. No hook on the tail of this lure either. That makes it swim with it's butt ridin' up a little higher, and it's nose diving a little deeper. It makes it wiggle a little faster and wider too, with no weight on the tail section. Also it's WAY less dangerous when you're lippin' bass on this rig than it is with a normal crank-bait all decked out in treble city. :-)
Oh, here's a link to another picture of my favorite Tipi book, which I put up on Twitter through the magic of Twitpic, over at TwitPic which is a very Cool place, by the way, to download Your favorite photos and then have them sent to Twitter to add to your 140 character blurbs over there!
