  1. 6th Sense also has their Speed Glide 100 that I'd suggest checking out. It's not really good fishing like a glide bait, but it's a great burner bait. For those days when they should be eating a spinnerbait, it's a good option and cast really well too. I burn it across points and shallow flats and the fish just crush it when the conditions are right for it. Much easier to get than their new wake that I think they're only doing a limited run of unfortunately. https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/6th_Sense_Speed_Glide_100_Glide_Bait/descpage-SSSGSB.html
  2. Wheeler and Evers are 1A and 1B for me. Mark Daniels Jr was having a great season too until everything got shutdown.
  3. I've got a DotLine Telescoping lure retriever that has paid for itself many times over. Not only do I get my lures back, but I get lots of other people's baits out of trees with it. Pulled a Lucky Craft Pointer 100, 100DD, and a Megabass Vision 110 Magnum out of trees one spring day on the Rock a few years ago, paid for right there.
  4. I've fished Sportsman's Paradise a couple times. It has some monsters in it but they get fished for a lot and act accordingly.
  5. I was at Clinton. I fish Pleasanton pretty often and La Cygne a ton.
  6. A buddy was there Thursday, caught 2 limits of over 18's and a bunch of other fish. I was further north catching crappie and smallmouth. I hate that lake. No problem catching fish, but it's always so busy and I always encounter some of the the rudest fishermen I run into anywhere when I'm on that lake. Not to mention the awesome roads getting into it. Doesn't matter how slow you drive when a local flies by you 55mph throwing dust and gravel everywhere.
  7. Also a fan of the Lil' Nasty hook. I've been using it several years now and it's a solid little hook. It holds up to abuse too, horsed this one in the boat less than 5 minutes (tournament time), on a 1/16oz head and #2 hook. Just picked up one of their newer ones with 6 cavities all the same size. I use the 1/16oz 95% of the time and now don't have to pour them 1 at a time anymore.
  8. Kansas did the same a few weeks ago and haven't had any issues pulling my boat to and from the lake. Outdoor recreation was also listed as an essential activity provided social distancing protocols were followed.
  9. I have no scientific evidence, or near the experience on the lake as most others here due to living a few hours away. However, a few years ago we had our little clubs year end tournament on the lake in early April and my buddy that was fishing with we was tossing an underspin while I'd rigged a plain jighead. I was never a believer in the underspin, it never produced for me, I even poked fun at him for even tying the stupid thing on. Got to the lake with about 4 hours to prefish on Thursday and found them in the back of a pocket pushing shad. This was my buddies first time ever even seeing the lake, and he proceeded to put 20lbs in the boat, from the back of the boat, while I managed 1 3lb smallie. Same boat, same cast, same swimbait, only difference was the underspin vs. plain jighead. Picked up some underspins that night, found some other similar areas they were eating the underspin and a jerkbait, ran away with the tournament. I'm more a believer that a correctly presented bait is the right area is going to get bit more often than it's just a certain bait, but in that instance, the underspin was hands down the better option. I've not taken a butt kicking like that from the back of my own boat before or since.
  10. I took my oldest son out with me a few days ago and taught him how to do the float-n-fly deal. Set much shallower on the little lake we were on, but I think it took him two cast before his bobber got dunked. Good way to get the young ones transitioning over from live bait to lure fishing.
  11. It was 42* on the little lake I was fishing here near Kansas City Thursday and they were chomping a little War Eagle finesse. Those good, slack line bites where all you can see is the wire sticking out of their mouths when you get them in the boat.
  12. I buy from them and wire tie my skirts with copper wire or coated wire from the jewelry making section at Hobby Lobby. The skirts will outlast the baits that way.
  13. FWIW, you can buy these handles at Tractor Supply, Orschelens, and other hardware stores for about $10 and make your own cable handle for less than half the price of a G-Force handle. I have a G-force on my bass boat, but a homemade cable on my johnboat, they both work just as good. It looks and feels exactly like a G-force handle. https://www.google.com/shopping/product/17616300823499336790?q=start+it+up+handle&client=firefox-b-1-d&sxsrf=ACYBGNQ4KXBKlVajjXbP6X5ckFAa-h5iwQ:1580723826596&biw=1280&bih=910&prds=epd:3432558141460694773,prmr:3&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjSwICTj7XnAhVJXc0KHcZPDpUQ8wIIlgM
  14. Thanks! I caught them less than 10 minutes apart on a KVD 300 jerkbait. I'd hooked a fish that didn't hardly move 10 minutes before the first one that I'd convinced myself was a foul hooked carp, but I was second guessing myself after catching those 2 off the same area shortly after.
  15. Thursday was the warmest day I've had on the water in 2020. I'm a few hours north, but they were biting good for me. Got to go when I can!
