    Thank you.

    I was indeed referring to split handles.

    Rod holder advice was precisely what I was looking for.

    Mike, John,

    Thanks for your comments.

    One thing I noticed is that I could feel the handle flex when I cast the popping cork. It didn't flex when I cast a regular topwater lure or paddletail....

    Exposed Blank Riod Handles

    During my recent trip to TX I used rods with the blanks exposed on the handles.

    The replies in this thread show us that no matter our skill level, the fish are in control.

    It's hard to catch them when they're not there or willing.

    That's a nice photo.

    You targeted the right areas for picks. I believe they simply are not present in Weems in numbers like they were prior to 2016.

    BigRick,

    You've mentioned the third tidal tributary with an apparent pickerel population decline, the other two being the Magothy and the Severn.

    I'm curious during your good years if you...

    Harlan,

    They do have some interesting hardware.

    Here's a closer look at the popping cork:
