Great info I’ve already scaled down my tackle to slam shady, Alabama leprechaun, s.s.bomber, power prawn, power prawn JR, and the moon walker is what I use most anymore, I need to learn more about trends. As far as intel info around here everyone has lock jaw, I’m on my own in that category, also not very computer savvy. However I am catching more fish since I joined the club, while I’m on that note Joe or Luke do I get any credit if I refer a friend to join the club?
