  1. As you look out from the ramp in the picture, to your left is the deep water channel. To your 1 oclock to 3 oclock is a large bumpy flat that extends all the way to the same river channel along the far bluff. Fish are somewhere on the flat at all times. They relate to the underwater humps. At times they will school and chop shad over that flat. From the ramp at 12 oclock is the ledge from the flat to the channel. Before the lake was impounded someone built a rock wall or maybe a road bed down that edge. You can see it on side image sonar. That hump on the edge is productive when the fish

  6. Jason, May I invite you to join me in my new boat on Table Rock or on Beaver. I supply the boat, the bait, and the gas and you teach/help me set up my HDS10 so I don't go crazy. Any day after the 4th works for me, but I know you work summers so I will let you pick. I will even show you a couple non-community holes for walleye.

  7. Hi jtram, Thank you so much for the Roaring River Conservation Area recommendation. Great way to access the river with plenty of solitude. Wound up fishing a hot afternoon and catching a few, but not stealthy enough on my first day out this year to match my desires. Caught a few and had a great cool day in the middle of the summer. Also found three river cans, two of which were live ! Learned that I need to leave markers for my take-out spot to avoid some extra cross-country hill-scrambling hiking.

  8. Bet you just cannot wait now. Huh. She be coming very soon. I am barely fidhing myself. The readiation treatment is in the moring 5 days a week for the next 8 weeks including this one. I must keep my shoulders in a unmovable position for about 15 minutes. Trouble is the bad one starts in about a minute after they get started. Buy the time they ar done the pain is enough hat I cannot rise off the table with that arm. Not a pleasant experice at all. It about ends fishing for that day. Was hoping to get at this fixed after these treatments. Cannot do that now the knee replacement that need

  9. Hello Phil, I saw your Wednesday fishing report. I thought I might be able to help. A friend and I fish TR for crappie near Viola and found all they would bite on was a red head, blue body, white tail 1/16 oz marabou jig. I thew 1/2 of my tackle box at them, I caught 3 he caught over 50. I hope this helps. If you try it down there let me know if it works. Dan

  10. I been casting and messing around a bit.I casted my 1/2 oz bass jigs on 0/4 O' shaunecy hooks. I will be dressing them pretty heavy. There is going to be no more rusted buck tail hooks anymore. I like the O'shaunesy because it sets the catching end back to a maxium. It also does not have a very wide gap. That also helps in the brush. While I was out there I found a cheap old egg simker mold I bought back in the mid 60's. For some time I have been wanting to cast 3/4 and 1oz drop shot sinkers with swivels in them. It really helps keep the line from twisting. So I got to messing around

  12. I use the sonar to locate the fish. I rarely fish the shoreline. I look for fish in the edge of the old riverbed. Once I locate the fish I will work the area with my trolling motor. Then if they are schooled I actually drop anchor and fish always casting towards the direction of the last caught fish, keeping the wind to my back. The spotted must school more than largemouth since 75% of my fish caught are spotted bass. Usually thy are caught in the shallower water adjacent to the deeper water. Interestingly, the schools in the deeper water dont seem to hit as much. it as if some of the

  13. I got a pic here of something you might want to try. These or 1/64th oz crappie jigs. They are so easy to make. I just cut off about 3/8 of a inch of a rabbit strip and glue it to the bottom of the hook in back of the jig head with super glue. then wrap and seal it to the head. They work well in colder water. I use them all the time on my favorite crappie rod, A 7 ft ultra lite rod with 10lb test braid on it. That stuff is so thin and the rods so long I can cast these little devils close to 30 ft wet. I use crappie candy a lot also on ligs
