  1. Where was this when I was growing up. Great to see this. How do I get my kids involved? Never knew this even existed.
  2. Nice report. This weekend Indian creek will be choked full of boats with your reports of stripers on topwater. 😓
  3. Thanks for the report. Quite nothing like a topwater striper blitz. I've never had one yet on beaver, only at the beaches of Delaware. And it sure can give you that adrenaline rush we all dream about.
  4. Last weekend we killed the white bass right on the bank up the indian creek arm. They were hitting anything with chrome on it. Rooster tails, road runners, spoons, rattletraps, etc. Also caught some nice walleye mixed in with the whites. One smallie and largemouth and a small striper. All pics are on my phone at the bottom of the lake. My wife was holding it out from the side of the boat to take a picture of a walleye I caught and it "just slipped out" she said. 😒 Anyways, the fished moved since we went back the next day and not a bite. That's beaver for ya.
  5. Depends on the water clarity and sky. Clear water and cloudy I use the grey/shad colors. Sunny skies and clear water I use the pearls and whites. Dirtier water I go with the darker hues. But nothing is absolute on beaver. I've had days that color didn't matter, and it was the size that mattered. Then there are days that it's the jighead color that mattered. It all depends, so buy them all.
  6. Been a lot of rain coming down...finally! I've been waiting for this kinda rain all spring. I've had much better luck fishing high water than with lower water. Looks like the rain won't let up til later this week. I think we may get pretty close to last year's level around this time or maybe higher. So how high will y'all think she will go?
  7. Nice fat ones. Bet it was hard to leave them.
  8. White bass for sure and 3 lbs is common for females especially this time of year. TRL has some pretty good size whites, and if you ever get 2 of that size on a top water bait it can be intense.
  9. Make a trip and report back instead of waiting on others to tell you.

    Similar. Mostly males right now that are staging in the deeper pockets.
  11. Looks like a blast. Btw, are you still making anymore ned rig jigheads? I've been trying to message you but it says you can't receive messages so I'm not sure what the deal is. PM me if you still are.
  12. Forgot to mention we did better below blunks and further downriver.
  13. You're about a week late. We did great last week limiting out both times we went. Haven't gotten a bite last couple days. Weather sucks this year, and low water hasn't helped either.
  14. It's suppose to rain again tonight and this weekend. And I expect we'll get a lot more come April. The lake will continue to rise if we get more rain. I normally fish when I have time h3ll or high water. I don't always get to fish when I want so I make the best of every situation. The stripers are running upriver like they do every year trying to spawn. Finding them is the hard part. They don't stay in one spot very long. The rain won't help since it'll create runoff into the lake and dirty up the water. I'd wait 30 days.
