  1. Theodosia area is/was completely iced over..
  2. I use a slip bobber rig. Cigar floats. Push the plug into the top,(either end) and I like Eagle claw bobber stops. Never have problems with the jig not sinking. Sometimes theres a little bit of foam inside the float you have to poke out with a piece of wire, but most of the floats are hollow. I use braid tied to a very long leader of 6lb. Typically 20'. usually set the bobber stop somewhere between 8-15' above the jig. This won't work very well at all with mirco guide rods. With a 1/16 or 1/32,the only two sizes I use, the float it sits a little bit sideways on the surface. lift bites i

    Made chili Half a large onion chopped then browned in the pot with no oil added. Add 1/3 c worchestershire sauce to deglaze.Then added 1c frozen diced green and red peppers. In a separate pan I browned some burger earlier , just plain no spices. Add that to the onions and peppers now. Next pour in one can of tomato sauce,one can of diced tomatoes and green chilies, one can of Bush chili beans,one can of water, and I used a chili spice packet,1tsp sugar, and 1tbsp black pepper. Stir together and simmer low for 30 min
  4. If I could only remember who made these and where I got them.🤔 eBay I think..maybe Walmart These are good too https://www.ebay.com/itm/Micro-Soft-Plastic-Crawfish-Lure-Creek-Fishing-Baits-Pack-of-10-1-8-Inch-/333740415283?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 Trout Magnet Trout Slayer has a little craw. https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/trout-magnet-trout-slayer-lures?gmc_feed=t&campid=71700000060361508&adgroupid=58700005482514787&device=m&keyword=92700057665728922&Channel=pla&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIk_KbvY_E7gIVCtvACh0GLAJKEAQYASABEgL2RvD_BwE&gclsrc=a
  5. The only thing that bothers me when I fish Taney are the pontoon boats that troll. For some reason they like to get really close to me. Then when they get really close they reel in their lines and start the motor again, sometimes that takes a while, and then they hammer down the throttle 50' from me and then run straight up the bank I'm fishing right in front of me. That happens all the time, regardless of what time of year.

    Bluegill,white bass, and crappie My version of deep fried onion rings. So crispy and very lightly battered . Thin sliced onion dredged in flour dipped in a very thin mix of flour water and black pepper and a pinch of cornmeal. Just thick enough where it clings to a fork yet still runny. I hate thick sliced and heavy battered onion rings. Try to bite them and the whole onion comes out leaving just the ring of batter coating yuk😝 Green beans and homemade red potato salad
  7. yes the technical part It's as old as the hills Bill. The people who showed me had been trolling cranks for crappie on Bull since the 60's. I wasn't even born yet.. Back then they used Storm. Rapala. Bomber.
  8. Find that odd, was the water too muddy? They work just fine for me and lots of other people.
  9. Trolling pearl red eye bandit 300s for pre post spawn crappie , they must have heard about that from Bull Shoals? First time I saw that done was over ten years ago from a couple who stayed at the Theodosia corps park every year. There plenty of people who catch offshore suspended crappie, decades ago before livescope. I've shown dozens of people how to do it. All you need is a $99 or whatever fish finder to see them. The rest is pretty easy. This same technique also works in 44-46° pre spawn water. If anyone wants to know how I do it. The trolling cranks deal. Send me a message.
  10. I don't understand why people spend thousands on electronics ,but won't buy a couple hundred dollar camera that confirms what you are seeing on your fancy equipment 🤔 I've got about $400 total in electronics and a camera. I almost always know what kind of fish I'm seeing on the screen. Why guess, just look...
  11. Ned catches fat bass in the winter. Its part of my winter bass box also. There's the proof , and these guys know. It's not just a dink fish lure if you know what to do with it.
  12. Last year the rains screwed up my walleye fishing in January. Tuesday I decided to go ahead and try it for a couple hours mid afternoon. I can get to my favorite spot by boat or bank ,the wind was just a little strong to try to mess with the tiny boat ,so I fished from the bank. About thirty minutes into it I hooked a decent size walleye, probably 17-19", don't know for sure because she spit the plug right as I was about to hoist her in. Came right to the top thrashing her head like a bass. I was trying deep medium and shallow jerkbaits. Snagged two deep divers in some buck root and lost the
  13. They were hungry, didn't matter if it was slow,still ,or fast. In Winter, when I'm shallow jerk bait fishing ,like along the bank, I tend to fish them a lot faster than you'd think. It's only when I'm trying to pull them up from deeper water , or fishing around brush piles ,that's when I let it dead stick for a while. Those fish that are in say 4-8' along the bank can get a really good look at the lure, so I keep it moving, not so much forward movement,but keep it moving. Some of these bites are reaction bites I think. The erratic movement triggers the predator inside
  14. Gosh I thought this topic had dried up. Happy to see someone post😀 nice work on the warts!
