As I promised I took the one shot catch a lot to Pelican Lake. FishBoy 2 and I hit the water around 7 am in our tubes. The water was clear, the sky were blue and there was not a wind or a breeze anywhere.

To start the day off we fought the skeeters that cast shadows on the right side of the truck. Man were they thick, some deep woods off put them at bay. Next FishBoy2 just has to always be the first in the water. So he headed to shore and got himself stuck in the mud. It was quite a sight seeing him struggling to get free. I had a bit better lucck I launched where the reeds had been stomped down by someone else. The lake was really shallow 2 to 3 feet until we were about 50 yards off shore. The water was clear and a toasty 71 degrees when we launched.

On this trip I took all my tackle not just the 1- Shot Catch a Lot. I started out with the usual plugs and jigs, tried some plastics worms, then some top poppers. Man the Bass wanted nothing to do with me. In the mean timme FB2 has hooked and landed 3 nice bucket mouths. I go to a worm and try for the bluegill. For which I am rewarded almost instantly with a 9 incher. About this time FB2 heads back to the truck which is now about a mile and a half away. He hands me the lucky lure a black on white w/red front and a black tail. I must have tossed that thing a hundred times and it never even got a look.

Well it's time to break out the one and only 1-shot catch a lot lure by Catus Jack. Now this is the black body, gray underside with silver glitter. I used a white medium depth bill, and the clear under belly plug. The water temp is now around 76/78 degrees and I am fishing in 7 to 9 feet of water with heavy bottom cover. I slip in an attractant pellet close it back up and traget a fish I saw jump about 20 feet away. Blam it gets hit on the second cast as soon as it hits the water. But I fowled hooked the brute and turned him loose to catch another day. Again I cast out working the cover benlow me, again I get another strike and another fish. As I said in my 1st report I love the way this lure handles. The action is great, and when worked at varying speeds or just jerked a bit it looks just like a wounded bait fish. For the next 2 hours I caught fish after fish a total of 21 large mouths. They ragned from 12 to 15 inches and all were fat! I had some small buckets follow the lure in and I coud see the bait trail in the water from the attractant. After catching so many bass my wrist started to hurt so I trageted the bluegill again and saved the remaining attractant for FB2 so he could have some fun also.

As I mentioned before the quality of these lures could be better. One of the trebble hooks broke off in a fishes mouth during the fight. That left this lure with only 2 hooks on the front lure. It in no way changed the action or the effectiveness of this lure. All of the hogs took the front hooks on these lures and they took it hard. I even had the bluegill hit it, but their mouths could not open wide enough to get over the trebble hook.

Now would I buy this system? I just don't yet, to be fair I will have to give it a couple more outtings. On the next one I will use it with and without sent and compare the results. I will say this I was catching NO buckets until I used the 1-Shot Catch a Lot system. So at this point I am leaning to it works and might not be a bad investment. But one more trip to a diffeent body of water is needed. I will let ya all know how that trip goes.

Good fishing and tight lines to ya all

Gone fishing ..... Will return at Dark:30

Just got one from BFT... not sure if I won a drawing or what... but I got one! Thanks! I took it out today and it's all beat up already. I only used the black and grey one. I didn't use any attractant. I was playing around with it very shallow to observe the action it gave off. I was impressed. The one thing that was missing was the little "instruction booklet". What's that extra foam thingy for?

I mis-shot my casts a couple times and the lure was hitting metal railings and falling on cement pretty hard. Hehe. It held up! No holes in it. The hooks might be a little dull.

Didn't catch anything with it although I did use it as a regular crankbait (without the pellets) for about 30 minutes. Then again, nobody around me at C.R. Dam was catching a thing. The fish were jumpin'- just not after any hooks. LOL.

Next time I use it, I'm goin' to a lake and see what happens.

Well, I took it out for the second time. This time I went to a small lake where there's plenty of weeds and a slow slope to about the 6 foot mark and then it gets much steeper and drops to about 15 feet.

I'm told there's Walleye and bass in the lake. Have yet to see them. This is where I caught my first ever Northern. Most people go there for the panfishing. There's no boat launch and most fishing is done from the fishing peers that go from the park area toward the dropoff. But it's difficult to cast to the dropoff without a substantial amount of weight.

Well, I was determined to fish the lake no matter what. If there's a bass hiding in the weeds, just maybe he'll go for the 1-shot. I changed to the shallow-diving lip, nearly losing the tiny little screw that holds the lip in place. I fan-casted for about an hour, playing with different speeds. One thing I noticed is that rather than floating most of the time, the lure actually sank most of the time.

I did use the fizzing insert today. It sure looked like it was bleeding! Made a mess of my hands too! Hehe. It'd be nice if the inserts lasted longer. I can easily see myself going through a bottle of 24 fizzing tablets a day.

I didn't catch anything today. But I did manage to stay clear of getting hung up most of the time I was out there. That's definitely a plus, especially for someone like me who tends to get tangled in just about every situation!

Got to the trout pond today. I must be doing something wrong. Either that or I'm way down on my luck with fishing or they just ain't biting. I'm told there's Bass, Trout (of course), and a few other types of fish in there. Only thing that came close was too small to get the hook in it's mouth. Of course, them little guys were goin' after the swivel on my line once I gave up on the 1-shot Catch-A-Lot.

After the pond, I went across the path to the Mississippi and tried it in running water. No luck there either but it held up to the riprap quite well!

Again, my biggest complaint is that the effervescent shots disappear completely within 10 minutes. Much too easy to go through a bottle of them within an afternoon.

Hopefully I'll get to try it from a boat on Friday (weather dependent). Might make a huge difference.

I did go to the Cactus Jack website. He has a lot of 1-shot stuff. They sell three different bodies for the 1-shot Catch-A-Lot. But the shipping charges are outrageous!

Found my next from shore testing ground. I was catchin' small largemouth's there today with just some jigs. Didn't have the 1-shot Catch-a-lot with me. Fish were plentiful from where I was. Gonna hafta pick up some slop-skippin' stuff to get the biggiest hooked. But I'm definitely gonna test the 1-shot catch-a-lot right next to the pads.

the fishing turned back one for me too the other day. yesterday I was watching a little pike reek havoc on the weed beds. big o'l snapper too with a neck about 2 1/2 feet long. when I first saw it I thought it was some one reaching out of the water for help.Unsure scared me there for a second, not there was a turtle, but the thought of some one needing help.Unsure

hope I get him when I have a net in my hand.Tongue

Took it out like I said I would and, lo and behold, stupid group of people with a jet ski kept coming in and out of the area I was fishing... lined up and taking turns on the one jet ski they brought. According to the vehicle owner, he's got 3 others and there was only 4 people there. Why couldn't they bring all 4 and leave my fish alone? Couldn't catch a thing with them zooming in and out of the boat launch area (only shore access availabe in the area).

Gonna try again some other time when there's nobody around. I've seen no signs stating that there's a closing time for this county park like there are in all other parks I've been to. So I might try some night fishing if I can get enough nerve to live with the bugs.

I do a lot of shore fishing my self. I am not able to man handle the boat any more.

you may want to check to see if there is a no wake law in your state. one that states thay they must go slow around shallow areas and so many feet away from shore.

them jet skies and jet boats are becomming a nusance for anglers. when the primary drive was a prop, craft owners had to be causous of what they drove over and near. now they just seem to not care.

Here in Minnesota they have postings that state where the no-wake zones are. There's one lake in particular that I know of that's totally "no-wake". Haha. Shoulda seen how quickly the Sheriff was at getting to it one day when a couple guys took their jet ski's out there. LOL. They spoke perfect English while my buddy was yelling at them and they were yelling back. But as soon as the Sheriff got there, suddenly they hardly understood English.

Well, I've run into a little problems with one of the two bodies... as I was tightening the screw that holds the lips in, suddenly it spun very loosely even before the screw was in all the way. Makes me wonder about the quality of the product. The papers that came with it said that they'll replace the body for free... just pay $5.99 for shipping. I think it's kind of a rip-off. I work for a mail-order company and we charge less than that for items that weigh much more.

ya know I quite often strip screw holes when changing set ups replacing hooks replacing eye screws in my lures.

I found that a tube of liquid plastic and a small can of whale oil will fix almost any thing in a pinch and last a good long time.

what I do is shoot a little of the plastic in the hole dip the threads of the screw in the oil then screw it in all the way.

the plastic hardens around the lure but wont stick to the screw. Wink

I am one of them guys that old Tim Talor would be proud of Sly if I think I can fix it, I will, wether there is a warenty on it or not.

I dont know if it is that I am a cheep skate or if it is; I want it fixed and I want it fixed yesterday when it is broken Laugh and I cant wait till tomarow........

What's the name of the liquid plastic that you use? And do you think WD-40 or Liquid Wrench would work for the lubricant?

I like to use the foxy poxy brand. be sure to have the screw already setting in th oil before you mix the plastic. you will need to get the screw in the plastic before it hardens. otherwise you will have to drillout the screw hole.

I like this brand because I can make as much or as little as I need.
