    It seems that someone needed my catbag worse than I did :D

    Most of my flathead sinkers and hooks were in it so I got busy replacing the tackle.
    Kayla always asks to jig fish when we go out so as I set up the production pot and waited for the lead to melt I found some jig molds and hooks.
    We poured about 50 1/16 and 1/8 oz jigs and about 100 1/8 and 3/8 oz egg sinkers. Probably poured 150 2 oz sinkers.
    After we finished I used the seal a meal to put 4 jig heads and 6 tails in each package. I sealed up 5/0 kahles and 2 oz sinkers together. I also sealed 5 oz bank sinkers and 8/0 Gama Octopus hooks and snaps and swivels for river fishing. Sealed some 3 and 4 oz bank sinkers in packs with 6/0 Gamakatsu hooks and snaps and swivels. Put some of the 3/8 oz sinkers in packs with 2/0 hooks for channel cats.
    I can't replace the Catch Key I had but I have an Eze Lap sharpener that will work. The replacement bag is not exactly what I want but will work till I can shop for a more suitable one.

    The seal a meal packs keep all the hooks dry and clean until I need them. I have a way of getting everything wet when I go fishing and large boxes of hooks tend to rust.

    I guess all that is left is to show how all this tackle works :D
