I do believe that doing this does loosen up the tails on some baits. Boiling them to the point of being able to stretch them slightly is the key. I boil most of my Hudd and osprey tails.

What is your opinion about boiling tails/baits to improve the action and wobble? I know some guys talk about boiling Optimum BTL and Opsprey Top Hooks to increase the kick? What are your thoughts?

Lake Shasta Low Water

  • Old Rail Tressle Across from Lake Head Camping Grounds
    I visited Lake Shasta in Oct 2008 to check out the historic low waters, which were at 29% of full, or about 130 feet below normal. It was a great chance to get a fish-eye view of the lake bed.
