Crimping Leaders

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I recently purchased materials for crimping leaders for some jigs I have, and I'm not sure how to go about it. They're single sleeves, not double, and rated for 15-45lb 7 strand. I got some 40 pound wire, and obviously a crimping pliers, but I'm not sure which of the slots in the pliers to use? There are some that are just small circles, and some that are U-shaped. The crimps only fit in the smallest circle one, and when I tried they still slipped out, so I just used a flat surface of the pliers to crimp it shut. I'm sure it's a bad idea, but I was... "frustrated" lol.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
