  1. I'm going to do it from now on! Enough of that MacGyver stuff but actually made the trip!
  2. Fish I get it and I haven't posted much in the past but will try to do it more often. Problem is I normally only get to fish for a couple hours in the morning when the family is down. I hope you continue to post as I love reading them and seeing your hand painted cranks!
  3. Thanks to Aarchdale on his post on the crappie he was catching last week. The pictures really got me in the mood to catch some. Got out for an hour on Thursday and caught some mostly small bass. A couple on a jig but most were on 3.3" Keitechs. Focused on the steeper banks Friday, we got out around 9:00 after watching a bit of the Masters. Still on the steeper banks we started picking up a crappie or 2 on the same 3.3" swimbaits. When we would catch one, we would stop and cover the area and would pick up a couple more. Also isolated pole timber would also hold a few but we couldn

  5. Thanks for the info was able to get out about 4:15 and fished for an hour with my 2 brothers. Caught 9 mixed bass with biggest a 16.5” sm and tried dropping jigs on a brush pile but no crappie. We’ll definitely try again tomorrow and sat. Hopefully be able to take some slabs home.
  6. Nice size to those crappie! Wondering if you were using minnows or jigs. Heading down tomorrow for the weekend and mostly will bass fish but may take a break and go after them.
  7. Well I fished from the bank and did ok but nothing impressive to show. I fished Friday evening after a true gully washer and caught 8 but nothing really worth a picture. Went out again this morning for about an hour and caught 2 that squeaked 15” plus a few smaller. It truly is a pia to take a picture like this from the bank. Had to wash it off twice after flopping around in the dirt lol. Congrats to aarchdale and everyone else that braved the heat and participated! So I also caught what I thought was a goggle eye but now think was a warmouth. May try one last time this evening but wanted to
  8. Quill, Please sign me up. I donated to CAM. Good luck all! My boat is at the lake and I'm not so I'll try to at least get a halfway decent one from the bank of a local lake or 2 here in STL.
  9. well at least it is not just this location that is having the shortages. I have been ordering more from tacklewarehouse.com bc I've been using more Keitechs and BPS doesn't carry them so I don't go in as much anymore. Which leads me to another point that TW.com orders with free shipping are delayed 2 weeks due to the increased volume and reduced staff. (Order placed 6/20 would ship 7/6). I had to cancel my order @ TW.com bc I needed it for the 4th, and placed an order Tuesday night with discounttackle.com and got it today with free shipping! Plus they are cheaper there. 👍 Just wondering if
  10. I went to the BPS in St. Charles yesterday and I was amazed on how bare the shelves were at least in the fishing section. Some isles looked like the grocery store toilet paper isles in March and April! I wished I had taken some pictures as it was crazy empty. They said it was supplier issues 🤔 not sure I believe that, but just wondering if other stores are like the one in St. Charles
  11. Nice slabs! Thanks and I may try a little trolling with some bandits and flicker shads this weekend but at bull shoals and not beaver.
  12. Thanks Wrench! 👍 Definitely was close and looked like it could go either way. I had a blast as well and look forward to do this again. I live in St. Louis and though they are definitely not as pretty as Bull Shoals I would love to try this again from a couple of local public lakes that hold a few big fish. Thanks Quillback, Phil, and everyone else who helped put this together! Dan (Bill Jr.)
  13. SIO3 - sorry but you have to click the 2nd image I sent like 3 times for it to zoom.. no 1/4” increments though. I hope a lot of people were able to get out but know it was tough to impossible for some. I kinda lucked out as even though bull shoals is 30+ feet high the didn’t pull much water so I was able to find some clean water without much logs and debris to worry about. Good luck to all!
  14. It was about 19.5 and caught in a creek that is in MO and AR but on the AR side. Does it has to be in MO? here is a higher res pic
  15. I’m probably won’t fish much more this weekend. Here is a bull shoals LM. 4.45 caught on 2.8 swimmer.
