  1. I've got some S-wavers and some spro bbz-1. I throw them here and there but success has been limited. Like others some good looks but nothing earth shattering. I always try and target ambush points. Think large shallow boulders, shallow bluff edges, areas where I might throw a topwater over open water or timber, docks, ect. You get a heck of a splat with a bbz-1 or 168 or 200 swaver when the lure hits so I try to make mile long casts well past anything I'm targeting.
  2. Pretty cool. I do have to give these guys credit....it appears through their pictures they generally do a heck of a job with fish care.
  3. I think most of you guys are missing the fact that it was made mention that Mike claims a bad back....while that doesn't mean that's what he is on disability for I would tend to think that would give enough information to make a call. I would probably bet Mike partakes in side jobs for cash too. Spin it this away.....you work 60 hours a week now. Hypothetically a freak accident occurs tomorrow that truly disables you. You really cannot see working for the foreseeable future and everything you have worked for to this point is in jeopardy. You apply for SSD benefits and your initial claim, like most is rubber stamped denied. Would you now be more inclined to turn Mike in? If your answer is Yes then I think you should call and leave the tip. I wouldn't embelish; I wouldn't bend the truth but tell them what you know. If Mike's story checks out great....if not then you did the right thing.
  4. The only thing I use for Crappie is Bobby Garland Baby shads on a 1/16 jig head. Bluegrass is the color I use the most but I have 6 or 7 other colors.
  5. I believe they did. However even with release boats they usually just motor out a couple hundred yards and dump them out in the middle.
  6. This is the exact pattern we ran all weekend assuming that would be the ticket. Let me tell you 5-6 fish a day and 2 keepers over 3 days is rough when your slinging the arig......If I was smart I would have bailed Saturday and started chasing crappie or whites.
  7. I bet Long creek will look like O'Hare next weekend. Solid stream of boats in and out.
  8. Put the boat in at Hickory Hollow right about 7am already 6 trucks in their little lot. Blew the horn for all you OA one basser's as I went over the ER bridge. I had secretly planned to stop by on my way back through but the fish had other plans. Went straight to where I wacked the Walleye last week. Probably 5th cast had a 21"..........then the barrage of boats. One after another and if anyone sees you catch a fish they stop and drop in front or behind you and start fishing. Had it happen about 5-6 times today. Problem is this isn't fast and furious; its slow and a lots of nothing so they don't stick around long. I have yet to see someone drop in on me like that and catch these fish. Frankly if you aren't willing to park on them and beat them to death you may only catch one. Did have a gentlemen show up right after us that knew what he was after and using minnow. I'm not sure how many short Walleyes he caught but it was a bunch. Finished with 3 keepers between 18-21" and probably 7 or so short eyes. Also had 2 smallies. Decided to start working back down toward hickory hollow and wanted to work another channel drop with jerk baits and got into the whites. Switch rods and started flinging a rooster tail with the browning air stream rod and ended up with 18 whites. Its certainly not a flyrod but there fun on light tackle. One guy pulled up near by anchored up and pulled out the flyrod and he caught and caught and caught some more. Seemed like every cast from where we were at......I wanna get into a good flyrod bite like that one time. WT was in the 52-54 degree range just about everywhere I looked and there were boats out everywhere.
  9. Nope not me....I had my brown carhart on all day and jeans.

  11. Go to Tim's fly shop at the top of the hill. He will tell you when, where, and how.
  12. No joke, I feel good about being able to catch 7lbers but hes slaying them......Bill we were working our jerk baits exactly how you have explained over the years on here so thank you for sharing that knowledge....one of these days I'll give it up and book a trip with Buster and explore something besides whats in my backyard.
  13. I have got to figure out the summer, fall, late spring fishing better. I have a short milk run I have confidence in but it doesn't usually lead to big fish. Might have a keeper here or there. The spring spawn run is where its at for me from January to about now. I have confidence and knowing they are higher densities in a small area that I just have to commit too until they bite.
  14. I've got a goal of a double digit so I try and time it every year just to increase the odds. They were all in one single spot and it would come in a flurry with the Smallies mixed in. Almost like if you could make one mad enough to bite it would turn them all on for a 10 or 15 minute period and then we would go an hour or so without a bite.
