  1. Decided to fish table rock over bullshoals this fall as we always tend to go to bull the last couple years. Was hoping to time the fall bite just right but think i am just a bite to early. Also wondering if i should have hit bullshoals as it always seems there is a good crankbait, spinner bait bite. The bite was decent on friday with a lot of fog and decent breeze. We caught about 10 that day with the bigger ones being the morning and late almost dark evening. We were fishing gravel run off points with wind. Saturday was a different story as there was no wind all day and really no fog in the morning. Only ended up with 3 this day. Five smallies, couple spot, couple largemouth, large gizzard shad and a nice crappie. All fish were caught on 1/2 PnJ jig with a lille orange in the jig or alabama color rage craw. The shad and crappie came on a ned rig. I threw everthing, but only bite i could get was on jigs, but the fish were good and in the 2lb range. Buddy and i lost a few big smallies that would have made the trip a lot better, but those are fish stories now. Fished between dam and lowere bridge. Mainly focused on the creeks across the darn an below. Saw a lot of shad at mouth of creek arms., but the balls i came across were the smaller thred fine shad that were like the size of gubbies. Sitting in 30 - 35 foot of water throwing to 10 - 15ft.
  2. I have an evenrude 2 stroke and this happened to me while up in sturgeon bay this year. I would give it throtlle and it would only do 7mph....long story short they hooked it up to a diagnostic machine and it was a bad fuel injector...after replacing one of the injectors it was fine...good luck
  3. I can only add a few photos so adding others here

  5. I'm heading down that way middle of this week and was looking for a report on water temp and smallie report? I'm wondering if the bite is in because no one has posted in a while. Heck, even bullshoals boat dock hasent reported in a few weeks, hows the lower area fishing? Thanks
  6. Is the big m area the upper part of the lake. I'm heading down that way on thursday and still trying to decide between bull shoals and table rock. Was thinking on staying at indian point area and looking to chase smallies. What is the water temp looking like down that way? Thanks for the report
  7. I still dont understand why 6 days of fishing? With all the tournaments that already take place, there are going to be a lot of lure shy or dead fish. Why not keep it just a few days, but suprise the mlf anglers. Make one tournament biggest 5 and the next most 1bers....dont tell the guys till the day of the tournament. I think mlf would be more interesting that way. For the weekend anglers this is good, but if I'm watching professional anglers fish I want to see what biggins a lake has to offer.
  8. Great year for sure. I was really hoping to stay in the top 10 just to see what tackleware house has to offer. I ended up getting second place to champ a few years back and received a custom crankbait that year. Im not sure anyone mentioned custom lures this year, but i had a good time just playing with everyone. I will be looking forward to next year
  9. Stayed at sister creek resort and as everyone knows the lake went up about 8 feet when we got there on Thursday and ended up about 12 feet up when we left. It looked like we were fishing in a flooded forest. We found fish in the bushes and off the bushes, but be prepared to get hung up. It seemed like the fish were confused on if they should be in the bushes or out on the original lake points. We ended up holding our own with all the rain that came in and no sunshine till sunday. I think if they would have had time for the high water to stabilize we would have seen more In the bushes. Maybe by next week the and stable high water, the majority of fish wil be in the bushes. The majority of our fish were over 2lbs with a few 3 and 4lbers mixed in. Friday was windy, rainy and maybe the worst day of our trip but the most productive for us as we managed 16lbs of fish. The majority were smallmouth but those smallies feel like double thier weight when you fight one. We caught the bigger ones on tubes and jigs around little sisters creek, bull shoals boat dock and oakland area. We were fishing brush on sides of points, and backing out off the brush which seemed to produce bigger bites. Picked up a few on cranks, and dragging wurmbs and flukes along with a few walleye in the 17" range. No top water bite for us. On Sunday sun was shining and decided to get out of the bushes and fish secondary points all morning for those bigger smallies. Landed better quality fish with.my buddy hooking what look to be close to a 5lber that got off at the boat. He caught it right at high noon dragging a big jig and teased me by handing me the rod and asking if I want to reel it in. Guess it back fired on him as he lost it at the boat. A few of the smallmouth we caught were not totally spawned out like they should be but most of the ones we caught were. A few of the largemouth had red tails as well. All fish released...ran Into some meat eaters from up north at the resort and they had no Intention of release anything. They ripped some big fillets off about a 5lb smallie and a few smaller ones. Said they were down passing time till the northern fishing kicked in full swing. Was seeing down 20ft is some coves which amazed me after all the rain dumped on the lake.
  10. Lol...looks that way...I jumped out to weigh it and figured I'd dunk my self since it was a hot day...water felt good though
  11. Pulled boat down to fish bullshoals but brought kayaks along to fish the ever popular crooked creek. Floated the 3mile float from Kelly's slab to yellville. Didn't catch any any 4 or 5lb fish but did catch lots of nice smallie on jigs, ned, flukes and cranks...they are all in spawning mode and pulled this 3lb one on a jig and pig ...I can see how these deep pools can hold some big fish
  12. That stretch of adventure outdoors to Indian spring is a great float that gives you the opportunity to catch some nice smallie, largies and trout...great float
  13. Just wanted to add that the fishing has been fabulous...stayed at sisters creek resort and didn't have to go far to find fish as sisters creek was full of them....caught multiple smallmouth all in the 2lb range. I kept the boat in 20 - 25ft of water and was nailing them on cranks and swimbaits. Guess we were catching spawning fish because they still had fat bellies and red tails. Was catching smaillies on top water in the morning in Howard creek but guessing they already spawned as bellies were not fat.....did nail a big walleye on the crank in sisters creek that would have went 8 - 10lbs but net was to small and my buddy let her jump out. It's just a fish story now, but all fish were smallmouth with one or two largemouth mixed in. Smallie were have way back in the coves or cuts of the creek arms and evening bite was great with cranks up to last light
