Hub bards has some great trips. I would like to do the 63 hrs trip.  Going out on my third 39 hour trip in Dec. The two best head boats in the area are Hubbards and Ms Pass a Grille.
Which trip are you going on?
We still need to get together and fish.

Never did go after whiting when you said they were biting.
Iíve been doing weekend night fishing on the skyway pier and weekend day fishing on the pier with my daughters (and still catching Spanish mackerel)

What is your schedule like this winter?

Sid's correct, a screw on or one with a snap ring is the easiest solution. That being said, there is another way to do it and I've used this method before.

You can use a drill or a small center drill.  Center drill the back side of the clicker button deep enough so it almost makes a feather edge at the top. Use a wooden block with a small hole for support under the outside of the plate and clicker button assembly.

Find a ball bearing a bit bigger than the diameter of the clicker and place the BB In the hole with the feathered edge. Using a small hammer and a series of LIGHT taps, the BB will roll the feather edge over and secure it nicely. The diameter of the BB cant be too small as it will bottom in the hole before it starts to roll the edge over.  Any other type of staking or peening might work but more than likely end up in a disaster.

I have used this method for a number of different fixes over the years and its always worked for me. I hope I didn't over or under explain it,  ...  I just wanted to convey the method.
Let us know how you make out, ..  Lou

Thanks  Sal, it didn't cost but $14 from ebay. I guess I can wait till another pops up. I just like the green swirl. It's going on a Green Tiburon 501 jigmaster. Just like the color.

Greetings I'm restoring a silaflex M50 and I'd like to get it as close to a factory wrap as I can. Looking for the colors and style or wrap. If anyone has a picture of a factory wrap from this era that would be great. Here's a picture of the original label. I've looked online but found nothing heavy with roller guides
It's the tip section of a Neptuna I'm restoring for a member so I'd like to get it perfect
Thank Sheridan

So what is this rod you have pictured go to ??   John

Use a punch, but still be careful.... you might find a screw-on replacement, which model are you working on?

Yes it is a neptuna tip, I should have been clear about that. I was just thinking of doing the trim similar to that but in brown and white and maybe leave out the foil. Seemed to be a common way to dress up the wrap a bit. Thanks
