    It’s a #1 leader sleeve... buy at Cabela’s or Netcraft.
    https://www.jannsnetcraft.com/Search/leader sleeves size 1.aspx
    Recommend buying the crimping tool... they have one for $6.
    Use pliers and they will slip or you’ll reef on it and damage the line...

    Some cool weather for the next couple of days, About time lol. Should get the convicts fired up. Thinkingwe may have to do a midweek trip sooner or later Roofer. We'll just have to call in sick with a badd case of Jumbo fever. Can't wait to get out and get a few , These Jumbos are really getting my fishing addiction stirred up.

    Stay at work, Bill. Don’t bother trying your midweek trip. We not only did not catch squat, that happens, but we did not mark squat, that does not happen. Went to the same place I limited out in 3 hours last Thursday, kinda of where you and roofer killed them and marked zero fish. We idled around in about a 2 square mile area and did not mark a fish. My chart plotter said we were spot on the spot. A couple dozen boats around and we looked everywhere in that area and last week I marked a ton of perch in that area. These storms have screwed up the perch bite, I hope it is better for you guys this weekend. Got those fish eye beads from Amazon and they have every color in the box of about 400.

    Hey men,

    We did ok today right at the green and red channel markers out from the raisin. Not sure your name for them.

    A lot of boats there sitting and waiting for perch to come by. We were mobile and did well. Just took us awhile to figure out what they wanted. All of them were cooler size and bigger. Never had non stop action though.

    Action was 1-3 and 5-7. Went out at 11
