  1. Eclipse report?

    Did anybody get out on the lake today? Just wondered if there was a magic bite or was it like the day the earth stood still. I fished Sunday morning and had some good action on a buzzbait. Caught some keepers, the strikes weren't explosive but they weren't messing around, they ate it for keeps.

    Too cute!! Great picture!
  3. Keepers still missing

    Can't wait to see more on this one. Are the quality fish just roaming open water following Shad which makes them hard to pin down like others have stated on the forum? Most of us love to fish our favorite techniques because we have confidence in them.
  4. Is anyone bass fishing

    Caught some smallmouth one morning last week on Ned rig, no keepers. Strange year for bass on Stockton. Hoping for some productive Fall action.
  5. Drum taking over?

    Poor man's lobster! Sounds great! I've got to stop releasing them. Cheap and plentyful!

    Ah yes..the illusive mad cow. 🤗
  8. Help Trolling Crank Bait Depth

    I started using 1/2 oz inline sinkers this year and I like them. I can use a variety of crankbaits that are smaller or don't dive deep enough without the help of added weight. The action of the crankbaits are not effected. I don't have to let out a lot of line either. If I slow it down, it goes deeper. I use my trolling motor and change speeds to experiment. I buy my sinkers from Netcraft. I think Bass Pro has them too.
  9. Pointers, Tips, Advice....

    You can troll Flicker Shad for Crappie and catch some decent fish. I usually troll 18 to 30 feet for suspended fish. Look for baitfish on your sonar. You can troll just about any part of the lake. You'll likely catch a variety of species. Trolling is a good way to relax and soak in the surroundings. Rodholders are nice to have too.

    Fished 7-11 this morning on main lake. 3 walleye and a couple cats , no size, on bb with crawler at 20-25ft. Trolled cranks caught 1 drum, 1 nice bass, 1 Crappie and lost one. No wind and very hot. The lake was like a mirror for the most part. Water temp 85. Very little boat activity. Glad to be back in the AC.

    Another thing, don't have too much line out, it should be at about a 45 degree angle.

    I've had the same problem with bottom bouncers hanging up in the past, but let it hit the bottom and reel up a couple cranks and let it ride just off the bottom. When the depth changes adjust accordingly. A baitcaster works great for making it quick and easy to adjust depth. There are great videos on YouTube for bottom bouncing techniques by the pros up north. As for twist, use a good quality swivel, it makes all the difference.

    Those big bluegills are tasty! I like em' with cornmeal, cajon seasoning, and lemon pepper. Nice catch!
