    Helped a friend practice Saturday for his high school tournament on Sunday. They're starting to bite a little but you have to find the right places. Actually found some 47-degree water and that's where the bite was. Jig and jerk bait produced several bites in a short amount of time before we left the area to save it for my buddy for the next day.

    Thanks! I like the mill creek area and did fairly well there a weekend this fall. I mainly asked because I'm curious about different sections of the lake. One of my favorite things about Table Rock is the diversity throughout different arms of the lake.

    On a double post here, Sorry.  
    You are just not going to find the type of information anywhere that Dock, Bo, and Quill have on the above thread.  These guys are fishing now and the information is as insightful and current as can be.
    God Bless all our wonderful posters and to tell you we appreciate your insight would be a understatement in any language.

    I have tried those as well and liked them except for the weedguard. After a fish or two, it's all bent to heck and a bit of a challenge to get straightened again. I prefer the mono guards. 
    Found these recently and although I haven't had a chance to throw them yet, I like the small head, guard, and choice of hook sizes, #2, #1, and especially the 1/0. I'll be giving them a workout in 6 weeks or so, Lord willing. 😉  They're a little pricey, probably due to the use of tungsten for the head.

    I keep seeing these threads about fish being caught from what to me are incredible depths. I can't recall the last time I even tried a depth over 40' much less caught one from that depth. Isn't there a barotrauma risk bringing fish up from that deep?

    I've never liked the minimum size regulations. I know what they're supposed to do. But in my experience, all they do is encourage the "keep and kill" of larger fish. Wisconsin has had a 14" minimum for many years and I have fished numerous lakes over there where it seems all you catch is 13 to 13 3/4" fish. If all you care about is numbers, it's a great reg.
    Just a thought, but maybe a different term for fish over 15" other than "keeps" or "keepers" would help.
    Just idle thoughts on a winter day.

    Macsimus got a reaction from MGP in Bass Pro Tour Changing Tournament Fishing Forever   
    I "boat-captain'd" for my grandson this year and several of the high school tournaments he fished were in the SATT - Student Angler Tournament Trail - https://www.studentangler.org/ The trail is strictly MLF format. The first event had 134 boats and the second had 83 and I was mighty impressed with how smoothly they ran. One of the organizers has written a custom app for smartphones that allows upload of pictures that we take while each fish is weighed on a supplied scale along with data that we enter: angler team, weight,  and species, LM or SM. The data is tabulated real-time and there is a live leaderboard in the app so I could keep the boys posted on where they stood. We were allowed to launch and return to any of the available boat ramps on the lake and it was really nice to avoid the cluster of a weigh-in with that many boats. The app also had a boat check-in and check-out feature ensuring that all boats got on and off the water. While the adult boat captain is no absolute guarantee against cheating (eg, over-zealous parent), it certainly ensures that it is kept to a minimum if not avoided completely. I certainly don't understand the business/sponsorship side of it, but it surprises me a bit that the sponsors are willing to go with a no weigh-in format. All of these kids are wearing jerseys and the way in which the tackle and boat companies are salivating over this upcoming generation of buyers is laughable, to this old fellow anyway.

    linda and i got in a short trip friday evening.  got out on the water a while before dark.  had to do some searching around before we found some to sling at.  they bit pretty good but got somewhat scarce not too long after dark.  seemed to have frontitis.  
    most of our bites were in the 30 ft. range.  1 oz. Black Widow, 1 oz. Mega Elite Blade and a 3/4 oz. Grass Jig did all the catching.  quit a bit before the witching hour and ended up with 10 keeper, but 7 of them were really nice ones.  never did get any shallower bites at all.

    Heard some good things about the museum, so with family in town we decided to take a gamble and drive over and see it.  First off, it is free, and there were maybe two other cars in the lot, so no crowds to fight.
    It had the most amazing collection of indian artifacts I have ever seen anywhere.  Arrowheads, spear points, axes, knives, stone tools, pottery and other stuff.  Literally thousands of items.  
    Lots and I mean lots of glass items from the late 19th century on.  Cut glass out the ying yang.  I know a little about collectible glass and the collection they have is amazing.  Again, just an unbelievable amount of stuff.
    They also have some old guns, lots of metal lunchboxes, toys, funky stuff like Elvis and Beatles memorabilia.
    Some neat fossils too.
    Worth stopping by if you are ever in the area.
