    Walleye Wed.

    Started at Taney trying to catch bass and had no luck so i loaded up and went to Bull. Pulled cranks for about 1.5 hrs and had a limit. Nothing big 18 1/4 to 19 1/2. They were in 20-25 ft. Good luck out there. Yesterday was quite enjoyable with the clouds and temps in the 80's.

    Walleye Wed.

    I was on steep banks, sometimes only 20-30 feet off the bank as long as the boat was in 20-25, also kept a topwater handy, when the bass came up chasing shad i would cast to them and they would just hammer it

    High Pucker Factor Morning on the Upper End

    When i upgraded to a 24v system i was told and did plenty of research saying my factory wiring would be fine. After long troll i smelled something burning, so i opened up the back hatch and the factory wiring burned through one of the plastic handles on the battery. So i got the pleasure of pulling 6 guage wire through the whole boat, it was a pain in the butt, but now i have no worries

    High Pucker Factor Morning on the Upper End

    Gotcha, i would much rather get rid of that plug, im constantly worried about it bouncing loose, may break out the solder and do it right.

    New FLW rules

    No more co-anglers. They are doing marshals now and they add up the weight of the pros the marshals are paired with each day for a cash prize. Kinda of a crapshoot for the marshals but i guess its cool they can actually win some money. And every day you marshal you get an entry for a boat at the end of the year.

    FOUND: Spinning rod and reel

    I learned late throwing a baitcaster so i had the choice, neither way felt natural at first, so i went with what made seemed the most practical

    SAFETY while boating

    I never used to wear mine. I upgraded my 60hp to a 75, and then had the computer flashed to make it a 115hp. My little Tracker is a handfull now and i always make sure i have that kill switch on me. that mod V hull gets a little sketchy on a 17ft rig running 50's

    ICAST 2018

    WOW!!! Lowrance is really stepping up the game 6 inch contour lines and bluetooth so your text messages pop up on your unit. They need to take some notes from Garmin, they are starting to fall behind. Lowrance and Motorguide are sister companies and Motorguide is too falling behind, Their nicest GPS troller is 4 years old, unless they came out with somthing i didnt see today

    New FLW rules

    No mention so i would assume its the same ole same ole. I mean dont you want to watch 180+ pros go across the stage and hold up 2lbers. All the fish look the same unless someone catches a 5+

    Pflueger Supreme Spinning Reel

    Im with you on that, i have a few still ,they run pretty rough unless i totally drench them with reel magic at the start of the day. Ill probably stick with the president XT and my Daiwa Procyon's for a while

    Pflueger Supreme Spinning Reel

    I got the President XT last year for my ned set up and so far it has been great. Casts twice as smooth and far as my Lews that cost twice as much.

    Mega Longear Sunfish

    i guarantee more fish die per day from being deep hooked than from a spear on any lake in Arkansas
  17. Hey you forgot about sitting in the middle of Taney drinking beer with 5 rods loaded with powerbait

    In Lake Quachita you can spear bass. Yet it is still a good enough fishery that the Forrest Wood Cup is going there

    We should get all the divers together sometime at Diamond City. Ozark Angers have the one bass tournament on Table Rock, and Jig fest on the white river. Lets have spear fest at Bull

    Flutter spoon questions

    Talked to him the other day and it isnt out to the pubic yet. Looks nice comes with a good hook and a removable stinger. The spoon ive been doing well on needs a hook, swivel and if you ad a stinger it turns into a $7 spoon. I have noticed the cables arent near as bad without a stinger. I havent noticed it making a difference in my hook up ratio.

    AGFC is pretty good about keeping spear fisherman honest, if they see a dive flag they are probably going to check you. My brother was down once and got tapped on the shoulder buy AGFC, they had him go up while they dove around and looked to see if anyone was killing illegal fish and putting them on an anchor line. After the diver came up my brother asked how he hell they even knew they were out diving and they told him they spotted them with the helicoptor

    isnt that the same with any fishing rod and reel or spear. HEck yeah im gonna target better areas than crappy ones regardless if im catch and keeping or releasing.

    Flutter spoon questions

    Ive been fishing them a lot lately on TR. You do get hung on cables quite often but usually you can jiggle them free. in the last two trips i havent lost one. probably set the hook into 15 cables but somehow you can free them. Keep a hook sharpener on hand though

    You are living in a fairy tale if you think spear fishing is easier, Ive caught way more walleye by rod and real than spearfishing for them and the same for crappie. You have limited time under water to get the job done. Not to mention the effort that goes into diving. Dragging all that dive gear from the truck to the boat, taking it on and off 5 different times. IT is twice the work as sitting in a boat trolling around waiting for them to bite. Diving is a very physically demanding sport.
