    linda and i got out for a bit last night thinking that the lake would be calmed down, wrong.  we were still trying to stay in the boat at 11:30.  caught them on 3/4 GrassJig, 1 oz. Elite Black Widow, and 1 oz. Elite Mega Blade.  caught 10 keeps total, and a 7 lb. flathead.  most bites were in the 18 to 22 ft. range.
    same old thing about not fishing until you find an area full of bait.  we quit about 12:15.  the moon was pretty.  linda claimed victory on the basis that she got the big one, even though it was 7-3 my way on keepers.  she got the big one on the big wobbler (1 oz. Elite Mega Blade).

    Scott and Brad at Marine Repair Center in Springfield are quite good with installs as well as trolling motor repair.  That is not part of what they do but all that they do.  If they don’t have it in stock they can order anything you need.  I have been using that shop for over 30 years.  Last year I switched from Lowrance and Motorguide to Humminbird and Minn Kota.  I got all of my stuff from them and had them install it.  I don’t think you can go wrong with them.

    You won't be disappointed with the Helix!  I have the Helix with MDI on the bow through the TM and he Solix with Si at the console.  Had a 998 on the bow and a 1197 at the console and the G3 Helix is a huge step change in clarity!  Had the I-Link added to both heads so I can, if I choose, run the TM from either position or the remote.  I've heard good things about Ulrich, but I haven't used them, yet. I hope I don't need them, but it's where I would head if I had a problem.

    The single old ladies here in Bella Vista have a saying about the old guys that hit on them, they are looking for a "nurse and a purse".

    I don't understand anyone getting upset about something someone says.  If they actually DO SOMETHING that's one thing, but just saying or posting things is free range, and always has been.
    Stick and Stones, and all that.  
    I don't wanna be shielded/sheltered by the things that are on other people's minds.  The more I know about what you think....the better off I am.

    I don't have a Facebook page.  My ex wife and daughter inlaw where on it so I'm not.  I think it's kind of a joke actually.  Especially when they talk about Russian meddling in the election.  If you get your news from Facebook you get what you deserve.

    Carl, 
    I use the gamakatsu stinger hook, it comes pre rigged with a braid type loop that you can attached to the split ring or swivel of the spoon.
    I always try to make sure that stinger hook is on the cupped side of the spoon not to impeed the flutter action.  That could just be me being very particular.  
    I haven't had any doubles the last few trips but it does happen more often than you might think.

    I use a 6'10" spinning rod, moderate action.  6lb. InvisX, 1/4 oz weight.  Pretty much vertical fishing, I'll flip it out there 30 feet or so, let it drop to the bottom, work it with some subtle shakes and hops.  When you get over them like in those screen shots, they'll usually bite.  Sometimes you've got to leave it down there for a bit, they may not hit right away.

    LD Fisher reacted to MO Huzgr in State Park Marina area, slow fishing but beats working!   
    Son and I been fishing out of state Park Marina area last several days.   As you might expect, been slow.   
     
    Going out about 5:15 am till about 9-10 ish.  Fish must be still scattered as we've searched with electronics and see isolated fish that don't see to interested in cooperating!  
     
    Have tried drop shot, jigging spoons for the deeper areas.  The only place we saw a small school of fish I managed to get a decent white, but only one (on a white/pink jigging spoon).  
     
    Worked main lake points and long run outs with no luck.  The only semi pattern we out together on one morning was we trolled crawdad color cranks along the banks near the Long points and managed to get 4 smalls and one lm.
     
    Caught a couple of small largemouth beating the bank in back of coves.
     
    That's about it.  More of a negative report but as I said in title, sure beats working!    2 more mornings so will update if anything changes!

    many, many times when bass are above 35 ft.,  you can't sit on top of them and catch them.  you have to back off and cast to them.  just something that i have learned over the years.  you just have to experiment to see what you can get them to react to.  sometimes, even a weenie worm arced down through them will get them to commit.  spoons are also something to try by casting to where they are and working the spoon down through them.

    I agree!!  I'm not a great fisherman, but the success I have on TR is due to the trips we've taken with Bill.  And no one knows how expensive he can be.  After the first trip 5 or 6 years ago and the wife caught a 5-6 pound LM I had to buy a fishing boat!!!!!!!!!!!

    Picked up the new boat last week and plan to break it in starting this weekend and all of next week!  Took it out to a private lake to get a feel for the new features, spot lock, Helix and Solix........... Love the spot lock and I Pilot Link, but think I need to go back to school to learn how to use the Solix!!
    if you see me out, please stop by and say hello!

    Caught about 25 bass maybe 7 or 8 keepers on drop shot 30 ft deep.
     
    weird thing today was at around 11:00 we caught 8-10 on top water. Saw one blow up, threw at it with a spoon, then hooked up with two fish. Had two inexperienced fishermen with me. Threw out a whopper plopped and BAM. It was awesome!
     
    Also, while crappie fishing a dock, caught this flathead on a 1/16th ounce Bobby garland and 6lb test. Was a great fight and a Great trip today!

    Nope, not yet, dang it.  Heading down tomorrow for 9 days, so leave a few fish for us to sore lip!  Wife says I have to test the ladder to make sure I can get back in the next time I fall out............ now that I think about, she may have pushed me the last time when I leaned over!! 😁🤣. So I hope the water stays warm!!!!!!!!   Plan to be down the Kings and up and downstream the White from the SK bridge.  That means all the surf boats will be in that area because they really seem to like being close to me..................Ya'll can thank me later for concentrating them in that area so the rest of the lake will be clear........... that's after my boat stops rocking  🤣😂🤣

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he has to have a boat, 10 rods and reels and $4,000 worth of tackle.
