    That would be way cool.

    A drake whistle and good decoy spread will get it done a lot of time in the duck parks with tons of pressure. Getting started, I liked the buck garner calls. When I started, I got a buck Garner call that came with a cd and a drake whistle to learn from. I upgraded from there, but don’t think it was absolutely necessary to do so. A lot of guys say the double reeds reeds are easier to learn. I don’t really see much difference between learning on a single reed or on a double reed, personally. Perhaps the double reed calls give a bit more resistance and back pressure?

    Fountain grove

    I’ve always heard good things about fountain grove (mostly from the old timers I used to hunt with), but I’ve never been there myself. I’m gonna have to make my way up there one of these days and check it out.

    Not drawn. Again. I really wish they would implement a priority points system where your odds increase every year you don’t get drawn. I really wish they would get rid of the quick draw, but that isn’t gonna happen. Since it isn’t going away, I really wish they would do priority points on there too. I put in all the time for quick draw (every week last year, for example) and never get drawn. I think I’ve been drawn 3 or 4 times since it has been enacted. Most of those times were after the hard freeze had set in and all of those times were late December. I’ve gotten one good hunt from quick draw since it started. I really don’t like it at all.

    Whites, Hybrids and Stripers?

    Mine is generally pretty good for everyone else, but is a real pistol at home much of the time.

    Whites, Hybrids and Stripers?

    I can relate to that. Sooo much.
  10. And yet, you still beat me on this tournament. I am really terrible at this. It kinda mirrors my personal tournament season this year.

    White Bass control needed

    I got to Stockton Thursday morning and we had whites surfacing all around us for as far as we could see in every direction for 2-3 hours. We tore the up with Zara Spooks. I was using a full sized spook and catching fewer, but a larger average size. My partner was fishing with a mini spook and was catching more and still decent sized fish. We loaded the boat in no time and continued to catch and release for a couple more hours. It was probably the best white bass experience I’ve ever had. Lots of fun catching them on top for hours.
  13. If I had the money for one, I would get an Ultrex. No question. It does not auto-deploy, but it does have gas pistons that assist in raising/lowering.
  14. I used to do that after classes in college too. If we were released early from marching band rehearsal, I’d grab a sack dinner from the dining hall and drive to Taney. I’d fish until I couldn’t stay awake then sleep in my car. In the morning, I’d drive back in time for my early morning music theory class.
