    Cape Fair 11/17

    I fished from 10-2 up river above Pt 15. I threw spinner baits, brush hogs, Ned Rigs and zeros. I only had 8 bites, all on zeros, and managed to catch 7 of them. However only 2 would measure. One of them was 4 1/2#. Zero colors that worked were green pumpkin, watermelon red and dirt. The water was typical James River off color and ranged from 55 to 60°.

    They’re back....

    I haven’t white bass fished on that pond since the die off several years ago. I decided to try it today. I launched at Lightfoot about 9:30 and fished down toward the dam. I hit 6-8 spots. Some only had a couple but 3 of them were loaded. I saw at least 3 year classes and possibly 5. By lunch time I had caught an even 100. I was looking for a banner day but had trolling motor trouble and had to quit.

    Big Walleye

    I usually don’t post much, but I had to put a picture of my wifes walleye she caught today. We were bass fishing and she caught it on a stinkin ned! She kills me with that thing. It was 5.76 lbs on our scale. Unfortunately I didn’t have any thing to get the length. It was way past my 18 “ ruler.

  5. Last Sunday 11/15, I headed to Arcadia, MO to hunt with long time friend, Paul Crews. He has a nice, small spread and a "hunting cabin" in the woods. I only wanted to kill a doe. I'd take 2 if given the chance. But I didn't want to kill a buck. It was Paul's land and he was hunting a big buck. I don't care about horns. Sunday evening, Paul had me sit on the ground inside a wooded area. Saw nothing. Monday morning, we hunted the opposite corner of the woods because the wind had shifted. I sat on the ground again looking slightly down a dip -- very brushy conditions which I'm p

  6. I carry my camera bag everywhere. Well almost everywhere. Today for whatever reason it was not with me. I took the long way home finishing up some calls before I called it a day. Then I saw this. Well almost this. Home was close so I ran there to grab my gear. The rain clouds were moving so I wasn’t positive if there would still be light. Made it back and did the best I could to line the sun up. Which just happened to be in front of my wife’s Grandparents. 30 seconds later the sun was gone.

    Hello Mr. Rainbow

    Managed this fella over the weekend. Upon hookset my 10yo daughter (who was on the front deck with me) and I tangled our lines. I had to reel down past the boogered up spot and use the trolling motor to keep on him. Super fortunate to get him in. Didn’t have a tape or a scale. He was a dandy!

  8. So my oldest of 3 daughters is 15 now... as I've posted her on here before she is my tom boy and will fish her tail off with me and generally just loves the outdoors. Last year she told me she was ready to shoot a deer. Schedules were a mess, but we did end up getting to have her build her a little .300BO rifle all on her own. So we went last Wednesday to check zero on her rifle and she was doing her part and keeping them all in the ring. She was ready as far as shooting went... she's a pretty sharp marksman to boot. We headed to my buddy's property and brought along my popup

  9. Shot the biggest bodied deer I have ever shot. The pics don't do it justice. It was HEAVY!!! The rack is nothing special except for the mass; I can't get my hand around his bases.

    Eagle Rock 11/14

    Opening day of deer season and a lot of rain is a great recipe for having the lake to yourself! On the water at about 7:00 and fished from Eagle Rock down to Big M. WT high 50’s... and sporadic rain. Ended up piecing together a decent day. Started the day cranking creek arms. Our best quality fish came on the crank- but you had to cover a lot of water to get bit. After the rain stopped and it was slick calm we found fish scattered chasing Shad off of main lake points. It was frustrating because it felt like no matter where you were they were juuuusst outside of casting ra

  11. Visiting my daughter in Charleston SC over the thanksgiving week my son and decided to try out this redfish thing, it’s also his birthday today! We had a blast catching them on live bait with a floater rig and a white swim bait with a big eye jig head. Caught some speckled trout to and took enough home for supper, they were excellent tablefare! Harvest is over and once everything is winterized and put up for the winter it’s time to start fishing more!

  13. Havent been to Bull in a long time due to the high water. Took my little boy to Big Creek Today we fished for 3 1/2 hours with minnows. Caught 13 keeps and one short one. Lots of big blue gill. Found them on pole timber on bluffs. Only hit 2 spots. seemed like the blue gill were in the 20ft range and i had to drop down to 25 to 30 to get crappie. It was the lightest bite ive ever felt, had a finger on the line and still rarely felt them hit. Usually just slack. I hooked most of them and let the little man reel them in.

  14. I waded the Roundhouse access area this morning and had a good time. Caught a bunch of rainbows, 3 average size browns and this fat rainbow. I was fishing a Y2K with a Ruby midge dropper and he took the Y2K. Water was up and running pretty fast so it took about 10 minutes to get him in on a 6x tippet. He took me into the backing twice. Overall I would guess it was close to 50/50 between the Y2K and the midge.

    Trifecta

    Found some deep fish that would actually bite today. It wasn’t consistent and I had to work for them. No spot lock. Older graph on the bow with transducer on the back and trying to video game fish in 65 fow makes it a challenge. Caught them all on a little George in a deep creek gut. Tried spoons, drop shot, ice jig and some other stuff without a bite.

    Loons...

    I found this one in Spring branch in 2015. He was flopping his wings funny and couldn't dive. Thought maybe he was wrapped in some line.I grabbed him from the water but I coudn't find anything wrong with him so I let him go. Just remember they will bite if you try to pet them.

  17. We caught fish very well on our men's camp out last week so I decided to take my 85 year old Dad out and see if I couldn't get him in on some of the fun. The first couple of spots I took him to had boats all over it so I had to go to plan B. When we got settled in to one of my other spots, that didn't have boats on it, it wasn't long before we started catching fish. About my 5th cast I got blasted by a 15" white and we were off to the races. For the next 2 hours we caught them pretty regularly and they were running big. A 15" to 16" white will give you all the fight you want on light tackle. D

  19. Had the most epic day of fishing for me in fresh water I’ve ever experienced. 20 + hybrids 20 inches and better. 2 at 25.5 inches and 6 around 23 or 24, it was a blur of Blue, Black and Silver and I was freight trained enough that I actually quit and went home hahaha I must be getting old.

    11/25 report

    Got here Saturday but didn't fish till Sunday. I'm down lake past the landing but wanted to let anyone know that's coming that MDC stocked off of their ramp on Tuesday morning. I grabbed my 9 year old and let her catch about 20 real quick like before spreading the word. So there should be plenty of fish in that landing area. I've not trout fished at all this trip, decided I was going to bass fish for a big one and just be away from other boats and people and enjoy the peace and quiet. I was lucky yesterday to get just what I was looking for with a 7 pound 5 ounce trout eater!

    Loons...

    Well the loons are back, number of loons I saw was about equal to the number of fish I caught. I fished Tuesday and today in the upper White and totaled about 20 bass over 2 days, 3 keepers. This sunny weather has got them out in the channel again chasing small, scattered shad. If you can get on one when they come up, they'll bite but it's tough to get on them as they just aren't schooled up and are scattered. I caught some on 3.3 and 2.8 Keitechs and a couple on the 1/4 oz Kastmaster. It's an early bite, it gets tough after 10 AM or so. I did fish the Ned some, better bite Tuesd

    Nice fish! I was out yesterday also on the upper White. Super foggy start to the day, which helped as I didn't go far from Big M and ran into a short duration top water bite. It didn't last long, but it was a bite on just about every cast for maybe a half-hour. I tossed a 1/4 oz Kastmaster at them, I think I boated 8, with one keeper before it ended. After the fog cleared I bounced around fishing chunk rock with the Ned, found one bank that held some in 10-15 FOW, all spots. Ended the day with 19, but only one keeper. I lost 3 fish that were decent sized, obvious keepers,

    Thursday Trip

    First of all I hope all had a happy and safe thanksgiving. My wife and I had our annual Thanksgiving day fishing trip. We went to one of our favorite bluff drop offs. Found a pod of catfish. The wife caught the biggest two (6.5 and 7 lbs) and we also caught another 5 in the 1 to 3 lb range. Also managed to pick up 3 keeper crappie as well. Only saw one boat all day. All in all not a bad day. Water was very dingy, 52 degrees. Maybe one ft of clarity.

  24. Was digging around a shed the other day and found my (very) late grandfathers' green metal tacklebox. Probably hasn't been opened for a few decades. And this is some of what I found inside. I can't imagine anything in there being much of anything but I just found it interesting. I know he fished the White River system before the dams and the James along with several others in Arkansas along with his father and grandfather. None of those in the picture are that old but I'm wondering just what else I might find having been passed down and forgotten.

    Sssshhhh! Deer!

    5 years ago was a rotten deer season. I thought I was going to miss out on this. That was the season that I broke the cancer news to the family and friends. I beat that, I can beat 2020 too.

    Fished my last outing of the week this afternoon before heading home. Caught 2 good ones and 2 short ones. Caught one keeper on a 1/2 oz finesse jig on wind blown bluff end. Not a major deep bluff but a medium longer run. He had some buddies chase and try to steel the jig on his way in. Couldn’t catch any others and got tired of fighting the wind so went back into Beardsley to fish deep. They were more scattered today and I only caught one short spot on a drop shot. Lots of lookers on the graph with several baits but they didn’t seem to want to eat today. Went back to the jig on mixed

  27. Picked up some jigs for jigfest, and a signature series jerkbait. Oh and I found some micro jigs. Kinda excited about that. Also picked up my plaque. Thanks @Phil Lilley AND @duckydoty Duane. It is fantastic. So, left to right, micro jigs I believe 1/256 oz, micro magnet, trout magnet, 1/8 oz Lilley's Jig, Ned Rig with Dave's Ned Head half ZinkerZ.

    Lower End 11-5-20

    Caught 5 small mouths and a random walleye/sauger? Only 2 of the bass measured but they were good ones. RC and Ned Rig. Similar to Quill’s post we have loons here as well and they know where the bait is. Graphed some decent balls with I hoped to be bass but ended up being a crap load of gar. The bass can’t be too far away, I just couldn’t find them.

    Success

    Went on a hunch to go fish an area I haven’t fished in two years on Sunday afternoon. Mainly we decided to do it was to stay out of the wind. Went to a flat where tons of success has happened before. There was fish all in the 15 foot contour. We caught a ton of shorts. Guessing probably 30 but with about every 5 short was a keeper. It got really good about 3:30ish and we left them biting at 4:45. Minnow rigging, WT 54ish, Stained clarity... Kept 18 God Bless and good fishing Lance

  35. Returned on the 9th and found this lone hold out. Fished for him off and on through out the day with little success. I would fish him a few minutes at a time, walk away , then returned a little later with a different menu item. He pretty much laid up on the same stretch of bank for about 4 hours before succumbing to the infamous gray scud. In the meantime my wife caught several nice rainbows in full spawn color.

    The Push for 100

    82) Bighead Carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis) An invasive species that I wish wasn’t here. Silver Carp and Bighead Carp are going to become a large part of the biomass in the waters they invaded. Lots of taxpayer dollars will be used to reduce there numbers. It would not surprise me if we had to start buying a Carp stamp to generate the revenue they will need to fight them. but if they are here, I might as well catch one of each.

  37. I just wanted to get that out there - much drama, turmoil and uncertainty in the world today but as I looked around I see that we have been truly blessed beyond what we deserve for sure. I pray that you and yours have a safe and great day also!! The kicker today was when the wife came down early this morning and looked at me with those beautiful brown eyes and wanted to know if I was up for an adventure....O yeah I thought! I can still hear the words she said ever so softly to me....would you go to the store for me this morning!!! Not at all what I was expecting...

    Another nice one 11/28

    I waded an area upstream from the Cotter access this morning and got this guy. I was fishing a Y2K with a ruby midge dropper and he took the Y2K. Also there was a BUNCH of boats on the river this morning. Strange that there were very few Thursday and Friday.

I for sure had some rust and lost/missed the first 4-5 hits on the nymph rig but I managed 2 really pretty rainbows. Both took the red San Juan worm and left the grey scud alone... After a slow period I did switch over to the jig rod and tried up towards the cable..only managed one chunky Kentucky but that was a fun fight too..got him on a brown and tan bucktail jig that I tie.

  43. Went back to the same area I fished yesterday and caught this nice rainbow on a ruby midge. I also had a big brown chase a small rainbow I was landing. He looked to be in the 28-30" range and was close enough that I could have poked him with my rod. I tied on a mop fly hoping to trigger a strike but no luck with that. It was exciting to see him chase that rainbow.

  46. The fishing has been really really good in our lake the last Three weeks. I lost a really nice bass at the sea wall on the first cast. This was the first time I have had one on at my sea wall bigger than 3 1/2 lbs and when I tried to flip it up on to the wall it shook off this MB 110 pretty easily hahaha that was my bad. I did manage 5 solid Crips though and watched an Osprey get robbed in mid flight of a bass by a bald Eagle 🦅 right before sunset 😎 I hope all of you are staying safe and getting out in our beautiful outdoors we have available in Missouri. ✌️

    In keeping with Johnsfolly's offering... Three middle-aged married women are sitting around the kitchen table, discussing all the various things married women discuss when their husbands aren't around, and the subject turns to sex, and after a bit, to birth control. The first woman says, "Oh, I've used the pill for the last 20 years, wouldn't use anything else." The second woman says, "As you know, we are Catholics, so we use the rhythm method. It's failed a couple times, which is one reason we have 6 kids, but for the most part it's worked all right." The two of them look to the thir
