    Baitcaster Reel

    For $100 I'd go with a Bass Pro Shop Pro Qualifier or look for a used Diawa Tatula off Ebay.

    Sculpin colored jig from the drawer at Phil's shop. Can't remember which size it was.

    Took an hour to pick me up but the fare was only $11 bucks. Cool cabby who is the lead singer/guitarist in a cover band and gigs at the local bars. Gave him a $20.
  4. https://youtu.be/Y7VHAPY6HQw Locked my kayak up by the dam this morning then drove the truck to Coopers Creek and parked it at the ramp. Caught a taxi back.This was a great idea btw. Hit the water around 10am. No generation. Paddled up towards the cable and began throwing a sculpin colored jig under a float. Missed a good hit first cast. Second cast I hooked this brown, which ended up being my pb and was right at 20 inches. Got it on video. My GoPro was acting up and skips a few times. Floated and fished back down to Coopers creek once generation started and most of the algae had washed through. Picked up a few rainbows on the way down, but catching that brown trout first fish of the day led to more of a leisure float with me smiling the whole way.

    Boats out yet?

    Yes, they’re out.

    Wow! Awesome fish and post! That looks like the trip of a lifetime! Have yet to ever chase smallies outside of MO. I need to drag my rear out of an Ozark stream for once and plan a pilgrimage up north. I'd be grinning for a month after a trip like that.
  7. Such good info in this thread. First off thank you to all who have contributed. With all these veteran cranker's chiming in, I'd love to hear what everyone's preferred setup is for cranking ww's/rc's. Same line and gear ratio for both?

    Who's planning an overnight float this fall?

    I'm on vacation from Nov. 5th thru the 13th Will be doing at least an overnighter on the upper Current during that time. Will be deer hunting the bad weather days and fishing the better ones.

    Weekend report 08/06

    Fished the park Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Bite was kind of slow and light. Ended up doing pretty good both days. Caught about 10 total. Nothing really big though. Seemed like they were bigger this time last year. Water was clearer than I anticipated with the recent rains. Had a bunch of looks and dismissals when I was on 3lb tippet, switched to 2lb and had much better luck. Hooked up on egg patterns, gold bead head nymphs, and midges. (Should've taken off my GoPro headgear. I'm blocking the logo on my O.A.F. hat! Photo fail!)

    TR for the weekend. Ongoing

    Thanks for the report. I've always had a hard time landing big bows/browns in the trophy section while throwing stickbaits too, but it definitely gets the heart racing when one gets slammed and drag starts peeling.

    Hybrids

    I hooked up with a few hybrids last year while trolling jigs for crappie on #35 last year. Had a nice one come off at the boat. Haven't been out there this yr.

    Second tag filled I am done

    Congrats! Still got tag #2 burning a hole in my pocket. I'm envious. Jakes are fair game here on out!

    Finally killed one.

    Nothing wrong with that! Congrats!

    Mrs. BilletHead scores!

    Doesn't get better than that! Very good work! Congrats to you both!
