  1. I seem to accidentally catch quite a few every year while fishin for crappie, and they are all caught in creek channels.
  2. I've caught 2 over 19" and 1 short one in the last week. Caught all 3 among schools of crappie on jigs. I call them "happy accidents".
  3. Be prepared to stand on your head for the installation (assuming it's a transom-mounted unit). I've installed 2 of them over the years, and neither were fun at all.
  4. I've had a Noco Genius 3 bank 30 amp charger (link below) for about 4 years now and it does a great job. Currently $240 on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/NOCO-GEN3-Waterproof-Battery-Charger/dp/B003JSO1X2/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1458007899&sr=8-8&keywords=noco+genius
  5. Ignore the channel swings. They absolutely don't hold fish. Seriously though, what species do you typically target?
  6. It's crazy to look at the lake level charts and see that Beaver is currently about 19 feet higher that it was 2 years ago at this time.

    I'm a Lakemaster fan. True - Beaver Lake isn't a "high definition" lake, but I love the ease of setting up the depth highlights, shallow water alerts, and adjusting the lake elevation so that it changes the depths for the whole lake (especially considering the frequent rapid changes to water depths on Beaver).
  8. Launched Friday morning at HB around 9:00, and fished til 2:00 or so. I caught probably 20 crappie total, and 10 keepers. 4 were 13"+. All came on jigs around docks and over brush piles in 25'+ FOW. Most of the fish were 10'-12' below the surface, but the larger girls were pretty high in the water column around docks. Not the limit I was hoping for, but the wind was horrible and I got a pretty late start, so it was a good day overall.
  9. With the exception of maybe 7 or 8 fish, most of our bites occurred 15'+ below the surface, with some deeper than 20' or so. Nearly every fish we threw in the livewell just rolled over on its side due to their sudden depth change. I really need to get a fizzer to let the air out of their swim bladders.
  10. The parents were in town visiting, so Dad and I hit the water early today in search of crappie. It was a great morning. I usually don't use minnows, but we did this morning and I was sure glad. We caught 2 limits by 10:30, and the larger fish (12+ inches) were mostly caught on minnows. Lots of fun.
  11. The crappie are deep and they are hungry. I've been on a really good bite the last couple of weeks.
  12. I also launched at HB Monday morning. Looks like my crappie milk run has finally come to life this year. I cleaned a dozen, but all of mine were 25' + deep.
  13. Sorry J-Doc. This event occurred right before the advent of cell phone cameras.
  14. You never know what you might find on LOZ at night. A few years ago, a buddy and me ran across some folks (all female, about 10 of them) swimming at night. None were sober, and none were fully clothed. I've never seen a water trampoline put to better use.
