  1. Got in the water about 0730, another boat was launching just before me and that was the only other boat I saw up until I left at 1:30 in the PM. Decent bite on the Ned rig, usual chunk rock banks, points with timber on them. Only exception was catching a couple on old boat ramps. Fish were anywhere from 10 feet out to about 25. Slow dragging on the bottom. Caught 17 with 5 keepers. WT was 44 early when I checked.

    been out the last two days doing some snooping. yesterday was a 20" walter and 3 keeper lmg. 5 or 6 shorts. that kind of zeroed me in a bit, and i fine tuned that today. 10 keeps, one lmg over 6 and a 5lb.+ walter. several shorts. kind of bo-garted onto a spot they were piled up on. sometimes many years of fishing will help you kind of know a small spot that needs to be sampled. was fishing crystal clear water with hi-vis yellow braid tied straight to the lure. most bites were at dead rest. bites were 10 to 15ft. these bass are really nearly asleep, and you just have to have the pat

    The bite was slow. I tried skaky, jigs, tubes, and Ned without so much as a nudge. I drug out an Arig and did 5 hours of chunk and wind. I had 5 bites and boated all of them. Only 3 were keepers but they were nice ones.

  4. Launched at about 0730, cloudy sky, water was flat calm and stayed that way for the most part all morning. Thought today would be a dynamite day for Ned fishing, but the bass didn't agree, I threw the Ned quite a bit and had only one spot and a 17" walleye to show for it. Threw a Pointer 78 early, there were a few fish coming up to swirl on top, gave them a chance at the Pointer, missed three bites and those were the last bites I had on it. Out of desperation I started swimming a 2.8 Keitech on a 3/16 oz head on flats that were 20-30 feet deep. Let it fall to the bottom and then

    A foggy start to a very cold day on the lake, for the first time ever we never saw or heard another boat. Ended up with 30 keepers by 2:00. Found the fish in a number of different areas, some over brush in 25 to 30 feet, some on ledges and drop offs in 35 to 45 feet of water, some suspended 40 feet deep over 60 feet of water and a number of them suspended about 10 feet down over 25 feet of water. All caught on jigs in water that is now 38°. Tight Lines! 🎣

  8. Fished today for about 3 hours. Fished in the trophy area from Trophy Run down to the narrows and caught them pretty good there on a cerise (pink) micro jig about 5 feet under a float. Also caught a few in the same area on apricot supreme McFly foam eggs dragging them on the bottom. After that I moved down to the flat just below short creek and caught them on a salmon/pink Trout Magnet on a 1/50th oz jig head again about 5-6 feet under a float.

    Everything is homemade. The head is fiberglass. The jigs are 1/8 oz football heads on 4/0 hooks with weedguard for Table Rock and the baits are hand poured flukes. So it really isn’t all that heavy but 5 hours chunking it wore me slick.

    Really getting some mileage out of the homemade kimchi. So happy with the way it turned out. Pulled second jar at 10 days ferment. Liked it so much went ahead and pulled third and last one at 12 days. I am finding myself getting into fridge and forking out a bite right out of the jar . So today it was grilled Korean Bulgogi Burgers with Kimchi Mayo. Side of oven fries. Cut fries with a coating of goose fat and a sprinkle of tajin seasoning then cooked on wire a rack over sheet pan so as to not have to turn fries.

    One of the greatest things about this forum is our ability to "agree to disagree" ... and most of the time with no flaming arrows launched. I was fishing buddies with one of the BASS originals, Ricky Green, during the 80s and he showed me one day just how many bites I was leaving behind on bluff walls during the summertime. I was fishing Trilene XT 8-pound mono (no fluoro back then) and he was also using XT but in 2-pound test. Same lures (1/8 shaky head worm), same everything ... but he caught a dozen fish behind me in an hour while I caught one. Blame it on the difference in abilities

  20. Because it is true . My main job for last week was find us a hunt for Thursday my partners day off. Made the rounds and found the best of three choices. Choice one had been holding a very few ducks with geese stopping by each day. Two good hunts there already. checked it out. One drake mallard hanging there. Second choice where same thing was going on. 15 mallards there and geese again there off and on all day. Bad deal is it is a busy with traffic next to road. Birds pretty spooky. Choice three was where I had been saving close to home. I hear geese go in and out from the house and k

  21. It had been about 35 years since I'd fished the Hideaway area of Table Rock Lake. So....when my buddy Gary invited me down to their recently purchased cabin to do some fishing, I was too excited to sleep. I jumped up well before the alarm went off and headed south. I reached the cabin well before the sun came up and to my surprise Gary's wife was up too, fixing a bacon and egg breakfast for us..... Awesome. After finishing our coffee we headed toward the dock, lowered the Charger off the lift and loaded my stuff in the boat. As always, the old Mariner Mag fired first crank and we headed up riv

    i have caught a bunch of them. even small mouth in the creek. most creeks are pretty darn clear. i've caught plenty of bass off the bed using braid. here is another case in point. i guided a feller from tx that was here to fish a b.a.s.s. tournament. there was a nice 3 1/2 lb. k sitting on a bed. he had on 4 lb. floro and messed with that bass for 20 minutes with various baits and never even go it to commit at all. i had on 50# hi-vis yellow braid tied straight to a 1/4 oz. NuJig with a 4 in. tube. i asked him to let me show him that the bass could be caught. i put that tube in there

    You can observe a lot

    just by watching is an old Yogi Berra ism, and it applies to the livescope. I learned a couple of things this week, such as don't use chrome split shot above your chrome jigs, the white bass go up to them and even hit them. Explains a lot of pecks. And I watched the crappie positioning under the jig as it was passing about 10 foot deep headed for 22, actually caught it on the drop. The Royals could use some outfielders with those instincts. Just saying.

    day Wednesday, some gusts reported at 24mph. Fought it from 11 to 4, caught a ton of short crappie, finally one 14 incher, one 15 inch walleye, and while I was trying to get the bow back into the wind, a 24 inch walleye, 25 fow on the break, minnow tipped jigs. Thursday the whites were hitting on the bottom in 22-24 fow, did manage 4 nice crappie, wind maybe 4 mph, boat management easy, nice day, probably 25 decent whites.

  27. Just got finished watching Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane and Starship singing. What a voice and beauty in her prime. Can you believe she is now 81 ? Yesterday was in a flea market/antique store looking for old vinyl our son almost 40 now and he collects. Some of the albums and cases framed. Many, so many I had and listened too. Proud of the kid for doing this. Sent him pictures of the cheaper choices various condition covers but guy said all will play. 20 bucks for 4. Jim Croce , Doors, Fleetwood mac and a Jefferson starship. It was a nostalgic trip for us his parents.

    More fermenting, We did and are doing kimchi. I say this because we have stopped the ferment process on jar one at six days. Will do jar two at nine days and twelve days for last jar. See if we can tell a difference. Recipe out of the ball canning and preserving book. Need to start somewhere right? Napa cabbage, carrot, garlic, Korean chili flakes, ginger, fish and soy sauce and green onions. A bit of a story on this. While shopping for the napa cabbage it called for two medium ones. Approx. 2 lbs. each. What the store had were some real small ones and giant ones. We did not

    Future son in law got himself an Ooni and he and my baby girl have been working on Neapolitan pizza lately. Headed over today to try things out and I gotta say the results were excellent. Homemade dough and sauce, fresh mozz and basil. About 950 degrees on the deck and 90 seconds to cook. Great leaoparding on the crusts and great texture. A slight crispiness and char on the outside, soft and chewy. Just excellent.

    I'll just say this end of the lake is kicking my butt. Only fished for about 4 hours today true deep first and I could not find them where I had been the last couple of outings. Tried a few different areas and nothing deep. Picked up the jerkbait, caught 3. Called it a day after that. WT 46.

  34. Never been to Cape, but I spent a lot of nights on TR & BS over ~25yrs, and there are definitely some localized fog patterns that appear and persist in certain creek arms. From being there when it rolled in, it always felt to me that it was a product of the cooling air 'falling' down the hollow, so to speak. It requires calm conditions, but the air falling down the valley makes its' own breeze, from the West in places, the North in others, depending on the creek lay. The straighter (relative in the Ozarks, right?) the valley, the stronger the breeze. In the morning, the compass orientation

    Shoot, I don't have a pickup. I sold my Hobie Outback kayak in 2018, replaced it with this Blue Sky Boatworks 360 Angler (part of Jackson Kayaks company). For which I have a trailer. I've only used it on lakes, not on moving water yet. Seems like it might be good enough for slower streams with water that doesn't require much dragging through. I've got a paddle and a pushpole, but neither of those is as efficient on this as the pedal/propellor.
