Re: My flopper isn't working right

Rob Allen with another How To set Barbs:

I figure this could help a few people in the long run.

Hah, just in case you missed it the first two times, here it is again:


And you could try putting some lube on it and jiggling it around for a while, that ought to get it working again.

Re: My flopper isn't working right

Good news: after my wife went to bed, I plopped myself down on the couch and promptly pulled my shaft out. Thanks to your many contributions, I was able to get my flopper working just like new. A few tugs here, a few there, and he's good as new.

You know, I'm really starting to like this community. Always helping a fellow out and never judging.

Man... I got shivers when I thought of you pounding your flopper with a hammer. Yeesh. I hope you didn't damage your shaft.

I saw a fish of his in the big ice chest on my boat. Head stickin out one side and the tail out the other. Won the SB tourney with that monster last year. Second year in a row winning that thing with a big seabass. Dude is a fish magnet. An asset to any site. Too bad he has "taken his talents" elsewhere, a la King James.

That's wonderful! Did you give it a test fire or two? How far did it shoot?
