R.I.P. Snuffy

This week has been “shark week”, http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/shark-week .  You know this pointy-headed fish biologist has been watching whenever I can.  I love fish, I love apex predators, shark week combines the two!  I will reserve my comments about the stupid “Megalodon” show, however.

I blogged about the demise of poor Snuffy the seal a couple of weeks ago, http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2013/07/shark-week/ .   In memory of poor ole Snuff’, here is another tribute:


That kills me.  I might even have to get one of the T-shirts, http://store.discovery.com/detail.php?p=457538&green=B125AEED-5539-5701-B4AF-3724C3F407ED&icid=mybuys (problem is I have drawers full of T-shirts now).

I am trying to figure out how to make a topwater bait that looks like a seal.  The design is relatively easy; the problem is getting hook hangers inside the bait that are heavy enough that they will not break.  Anyone know where I can get some size 100/0 treble hooks?
