  1. Hello fellow fisherman. I haven't been on lately. Primarily because Ive been too busy to fish. However, I did just fish a MSHP tournament on the 18th at The Rock! Fishing was great! Started off on north facing banks throwing a red custom painted rock crawler just inside secondary pea gravel banks. Immediately caught two smallies almost 3lbs each in about 8 fow. So we had almost 6lbs in the boat by a little before 7. Fished a couple more hours with only a couple shorts. My buddy didnt dress appropriately for the weather. He got too cold so we headed back to the truck to get some dry clothes for him as it had rained all day. As he was getting some dry clothes I continued fishing switching to a kitech to avoid all the snot on the r.c. hooked a nice one but lost him pretty quick. We were now in a south facing cove both fishing the swim bait and made quick work getting our five. In this cove we culled out 4 or 5 times. With a total of almost 16lbs taking first place. Pretty much kept the boat in about 20 to 25 feet and fishing the guts of the coves. The large mouth which weighed 3.57 came in about 1 foot of water. Good luck to all! Cant wait to get back. Sorry if this was the second post. For some reason on my end it wasn't showing that it went through.
  2. Happy hollow near the dam or four seasons in the James river/aunts creek area
  3. Hi everyone. Hadn't posted in a while but for good reason. I have been there in a while until mothers day weekend. Caught several good fish and quite a few keepers and shorts. Here are a couple of them. Me and my daughter went out Sunday morning for a bit and had a blast. Too water was great as well as the swim bait. I can't wait til memorial day weekend as we are heading back down. I wish I could tell you a definite pattern I developed other that they were caught anywhere from 2 fow to 50 few under the boat.
  4. Sad day when good men die. Mr. Bill Beck will be missed. Please pray for Mary and his family.
  5. Old plug, I don't believe anyone supports the philosophy of taking advantage of the consumer. If you are suggesting Johnny Morris with bass pro does based on his retail. Your simply wrong! His prices match, or are lower than many of his competitors. Now to rebuttle wether or not a business should take advantage of other businesses. Again if you are referencing Johnny Morris, I do believe the businesses in which he has purchased over the years have not been taken by hostile situations. (Agreed upon by others members of this site who have stated the same thing) In fact I would suspect there were negotiations by both companies who agreed to settle on an offer. Doesn't sound like taking advantage of someone to me. I would put money on it, if you had what he has rest assured, you would continue to invest just as he does. Everyone in this country has been provided the opportunity to create a life as successful as he or she desires thanks to our service men and women. (If you were one, I thank you for your service) but they have to be willing to take the risks he has, and you can bet he has taken some huge risks throughout his endeavors. He didn't start out a billionaire he has done hard work getting where he is today. But let's just teach our kids to work hard,Be successful (to whatever capacity you are willing to go) so someone like you can cut them down,tell them how evil they for being driven to succeed. Oh, and let's not forget the donations and contributions he has made over the years to many charities, organizations and communities. Millions I'm sure. I wish he could read this. I'd tell him to, "Keep up the good work Johnny Morris!" Despite what the "nay sayers" are saying.
  6. I don't get it either. The hate on JM. He has done incredible things for many areas and continues to do so. I personally know one of his head accountants who has worked for him for many years and has absolutely nothing negative to say about the guy. In fact she only speaks wonderful things of him. Additionally I know some of the store workers and have asked them personally how they like working for him. Even one of the horse drawn carriage drivers and a waitress who LOVE working for him. So yes I know personally or have talked to employees from the top to the bottom. (If you will) all of which love working for him. Because of him, my family personally have made many memories from what he has to offer. Yes I did have to spend some money to make those priceless memories. But I dont expect things for free. (Before you get your panties in a wad, I'm not suggesting anyone on here does) I echo the comment made, I don't see where he price gouges. Everything does seem pretty fairly priced. I can bet if any one person on here who would have gotten the business going he has, they too would continue to invest. I refuse to believe the discontent doesn't come from mere jealousy. It does....most of you who speak negative of him I'm sure have never met him. Not that I have. But just maybe if you had the opportunity to meet him you would have a different opinion. But maybe your too shallow to even admit that. Everyday I spin my wheels trying to think of an invention to hope one day I can make it big. In a sense his business is an invention. Rest assured the guy who owns tackle warehouse is pretty well off and has nearly every lure one can imagine for sale. But several on here who bad mouth JM accuse him of monopoly but in same breath praise tackle warehouse. Yes i do realize they dont own some of the companies he does but also rest assured the owner invests his money and even may have plans you aren't aware of. Suppose he bought out a boat company or another business. Would you speak the negativity of him too? Who knows, maybe he does have other companies within the same industry who knows? Some people are just jealous or hypocrites perhaps. Good Lord folks, Start living the american dream instead of trying to destroy someone else's. Be creative, be risky. Sorry for my rant as this is just my opinion.
  7. Scary story. No fish is worth risking your life for. I know we all live by that philosophy but sometimes excitement takes over. This is a reminder for all of us. Thanks for sharing that story and thank God nobody was hurt.
  8. My uncle is looking at putting a helix 9 on his boat. He currently has an 899 hd si. Does anyone know if the transducers are universal to each other. Hes trying to avoid pulling the current transducer off in lieu of not swapping them out.
  9. Awesome. I am heading down tomorrow with my squad. Looking forward to it. Thanks guys.
  10. Just wondering. I havent been down in a while. Is the water starting to clear up near the dam?
  11. Lol. Just messing with you. I enjoy your content. (Most of the time) LoL.
  12. Old plug, one of three things. You either need to trim your fingernails, you have giant fingers (unlike Trump) or you need to start using spell check. Lol. It takes me a bit to figure what your saying. Just kidding. Just having fun
  13. Dan this is a technique I do at loz. Thought I would try it at the TRL. It worked for me. I wish I had caught some wall eye.
  14. Wrench, my thought is the fish follow the old river/creek channel. On the way they find a nice hotel/motel to hang around and swim in the hotel/motel pool for a short time. We can only hope they'll keep the light on for us. Lol. This pattern typically will stay pretty decent throughout the summer. I like it again come winter with an a-rig, jerk bait, grub or a spoon. Look for those cut/pockets in the bluff walls. If you find a lay down or falling rocks, fish those spots really well. Also experiment with the half ounce, three quarter or one ounce jigs. My best was a toss up between the half and three quarter.
  15. Sitting the boat in water from 30 to almost 80 foot deep. Just depemds on How quick the bluff drops off. For the most part my boat is no farther than 20 to 30 feet from the bank.
  16. I have been doing phenomenal lately. First, as I reported a couple of weeks ago I was dragging a jig off points. Now I've moved onto bluffs. The bite has been great! I primarily have focused channel swing bluff walls. Literally throwing the jig on the bank and dragging it off into the water. Typically after it falls off into 10 feet of water they are hammering it. Me and my brother in law are catching 30 plus a day in just a few hours. The key to me certainly is making sure your on channel swing bluffs. I've been using 1/2 to 3/4 oz jig. Some have maybe figured this out already. It has been on for me for a couple weeks now. Good luck to all.
  17. Ealy. Honestly if you consider yourself handy, I would do it yourself. Its seriously not that bad. I did it one time in my boat and it turned out great. Probably for about $500.00 to $600.00 you could do it. Im betting to have someone do it your spending close to a couple grand. Not sure though I've never had it done before.
  18. Great job Ken and your wife. Thanks for the info. Enjoy enjoy!
  19. I've been reading a lot on the forum but wasn't able to provide anything beneficial as I haven't been down for so long. I got to make it down for a few days and followed BB's suggestions. I primarily fished secondary points on the lower end. I fished a half or 3/4 oz jig pbj or green pumpkin with twin tail grubs or a shake head with chiggers craw. I sat the boat in 25 to 35 fow (depending on how fast the bank dropped off) very slowly I dragged the jig across the bottom (counting rocks as I call it) they were exploding on it. Here are the best two caught. Though I caught mostly keepers. One day I got out at 730ish by 830 ish I caught 20+.
  20. I like the thought of the caliber product but....as I looked at it, it specifically says it's for aluminum boats however It can be used on Fiberglass. But precautions would have to be taken. Which only include waxing. I would be interested what others "know" about it. Thanks
  21. We'll I did go out. Put I. At moonshine. M&M it was rough taking out due to the wind. Pretty much focused on spimmerbait. I shouldn't have been so stubborn. I didn't catch one fish. I got skunked. Water was extremely tough. Gonna try it again tomorrow. MAYBE
  22. Any where to launch at on the lake around the dam?
