    We fished the USA Bassin championship on Sat and Sunday out of Mill creek.  Saturday we caught them on mainly jigs up the James pretty good. Then Saturday with all the fog we couldnt go to far so we stopped at a spot my buddy found them schooling a week earlier and we flat went to town catching them on top water over 175ft.  All three species mixed in.  We had a limit real quick and decided to go back up the James and look for a big one on a jig.  Caught lots of shorts but they werent biting it like they were the day before. 
    Over all it was really tough for most everybody, very few limits brought in either day. We had a little over 12lbs the first day and a little under 12lbs the second day. Just enough to take the win

    Yes we are targeting walleye and learning the areas we fish and looking for good structure. Earlier in the year my son caught a 27 in Walleye. Liprippa is my son and we've been working as a team in the boat bottom bouncing and using the electronics searching them out. We both love to fish. After he caught his 27 inch fish we talked about not keeping the big ones and just keeping the eaters/ 18 inch keepers trying different tactics besides just bottom bouncing spinners and having fun when we have some success using other trolling methods. To me that's what fishing is all about. Especially with my own son. Good clean fun 🙂

    glad you weren't hurt any worse. could have ended badly.
    I will have to say I am pretty religious about wearing mine as im not the best swimmer in the world by any means and summer before last I had a small incident where it could have turned out really bad with my last boat.
    my wife and kids and I were camping at Aunts creek for the weekend was Memorial day weekend and kids were wanting to get out on the boat and fish. so like most times camping im always the first one up and the kids normally sleep pretty late but I figured I would go out for a hour or two before anyone woke up. so I hit the water and headed to the back of the creek arm. managed to catch quite a few fish. and it got about 8:30 am and I figured I would head back to camp and make breakfast for everyone. so I button everything up on the boat and head back. so get the boat up and running and managed to get behind a boat pulling a skier so not wanting to follow them back I moved out to pass them. when I hit the boat wake all of a sudden the boat is in the air and sideways. it hits the water bow first and spins me around quicker than I can blink and I'm facing the same way I just came from. it threw me all the way across the boat and into the opposite side. I managed to stay in the boat just mainly because I was able to hold on to the wheel with one hand and the boat I had at the time you practically sit on the floor so it was a deep boat. if it were like most of the newer boats where you sit up high from the gunnel im pretty confident I would have went out. and all this within 1 mile of the boat ramp so being that it was close I didn't have my life vest on. could have been a bad deal
    what happened was when I went to cross the wake of the ski boat I gased on the boat and at the same time went to turn into the wake and the Hydraulic steering line came off the pump which kicked the motor to one side and threw me sideways in mid air. who ever had the boat before me had messed up the threaded end of the hydraulic hose so it did not screw onto the pump they just had a barb air type fitting on the pump and the hose with a hose clamp holding it on. stupid what people do to repair boats.

    Put in at big m in search of some new areas for walleyes. The old man caught one keeper right off the bat. I pulled another one to the boat but didn’t land it. Both were right around 18.5in. Caught another short and bunch of bass, bottom bouncing 20-25 fow. Didn’t have any more luck till the end of the day trolling back to the boat ramp. Switched to trolling spoons and crankbaits and landed a 25incher which felt like I was pulling in a tree branch. Got some pics of him and put him back. Didn’t kill em but always a good day on the water.

    Sounds like you threw the tackle box at them.....I’ve got a $50,000 boat and enough tackle to open a well stocked store, and I can’t tell you how many days of fishing I’ve had with no bites. But I can tie on lures like a champ!!! As I get older I find that I enjoy the serenity and beauty of being out in nature “almost” as much as getting my line stretched. ALMOST

    I was in a shop one night way up under a pickup replacing cab mounts and one of those baby carrying spiders approached me except I didn't know they were babies. . I am freaked out by spiders. They are good at a distance but I don't want them all up on me. Like I said I'm under a truck and there wasn't much room under there. I grabbed a tool and tried to flick that ugly thing away from me and that's when the babies poured off of her. It was like a liquid running off her back. I'm really surprised that I didn't hurt myself getting out from under there.

    Had a close encounter today, thought Vernon would enjoy this.  @vernon
    This afternoon I went out for a walk at one of the parks here in Bella Vista.  It has an out of service access road that goes uphill at a fairly steep incline, leads to the top of an earthen dam that backs up a lake called Loch Lomond.  I will do about 3 miles and will walk up and down that hill a few times to get my heart going.
    There's a gravel road that runs the length of the dam, maybe about a 1/2 mile in length.  I'll walk it to one end then back to the other end.  The tire tracks are gravel with some old blacktop, there's grass in the middle of the road and about a 10 foot strip on each side.  The sides and side strips are kept mowed, but on the lake side of the dam it is chunk rock with weedy type vegetation and on the land side of the dam it is basically a steep slope covered with thick, weedy growth.  
    So I am walking the dam today and see a big spider cross the track in front of me.  I would get close to it as I want to check it out and the darn thing would come after me, it would kind of hop a few inches at a time coming towards my foot.  I have never seen a spider that aggressive before.  It did let me get close enough to get a good look at it, and darned if it didn't have some baby spiders riding on its back.  Never seen this before, so when I got home I did a search on "spiders with babies on back"  and it turns out it was a wolf spider.  According to the experts it is the only spider in the US that carries its babies around like that.  I didn't squash it, couldn't kill a mama with her babies, and I had some respect for a critter that would take on something that outweighs it probably about 10,000 times.
    So now about the snake - I start walking down the trail again, and maybe get about 100 yards, hear something move in the grass, look down and a bit to my right and see a snake dart into the weeds.  It couldn't have been more than a couple of feet from my leg when it seemed to almost jump up and zip into the weeds.  I only got about a 1 second look at it, but I am convinced it was a cottonmouth.  Had that fat body with a skinny short tail section and the skin coloration those things have.  And it was a good sized one, I'm guessing at least 3 feet long and bulky.  
    I was fortunate it didn't go for my leg, because I never saw it until it took off.  And it was pretty cool today, I think it was about 60 degrees when I saw that snake, but it sure didn't act sluggish at all.  It must've been out in the short grass sunning itself until I came along.
    I have spend a lot of time outdoors and have seen some venomous snakes, but never have I had one that close to me (that I know of) where I thought it could've got me if it had wanted to.  One more step and I would've been within inches.

    Yep black snake, they love little birdies that like to nest over doors etc.  They have no interest even in people or even Jayhawk fans.

    Great report and pictures!!  And now very expense!
    .............. I showed it to the boss and now she wants to try to target walleye this fall.  So....... I am now the proud owner of a portable heater, two trolling poles with line counter reels, two rod holders, 24 pencil weights in various sizes and a drift sock to slow the boat down while trolling!!!!!!
    I do like the thought of just setting at the console and sipping a beverage while I fish!!  
    Could you in the future just report that you caught a few more, no sizes, no numbers and no pictures!!   LOL

    General reply to several posts. I have caught two at 10 and 13.75 pounds. I saw a 14.5 alive. I have seen mounts ranging from 10 the 15.5. I am sure Rangerman can say the same. Bill Babler has posted multiple pictures of Buster's very large catches. Do I think a 20+ is in Table Rock? Yes. In Bull Shoals? He** yes.
    As for learning to fish walleye, I urge you to read Rangerman's posts and the articles I have written. You will save yourselves years of learning.

    A buddy of mine in Washington used to fish about 6 times a year, he was always buying tackle however.  I used to kid him about buying stuff for his future "tackle museum" because he was never going to use it all.
    Another buddy of mine is always asking me about what I paid for anything I pull out of the tackle box.  He'll ask me "What did that set you back?".  I like to mess with him and tell him, "This is a special order color of Zoom Trick Worms, had to pay $49 for this pack."

    My brother and i kinda took a break from diving the last 4 years since we bot had kids. But next summer we plan on getting back to it, he already got a dive boat and i got a new camera. Hope to have some good footage next summer.. I think a lot of bass guys would like to see how bass set up in brush piles, and i think it would be fun to get some videos of different lures underwater
