  1. Mad Scientist crappie experiment 😂

    Thank you sir. Might try and run down there and get a bottle or two. I’m not completely sold on it yet. But if it’s cheap than I’ll keep trying it out some. Yes males are on the bank with their war paint on. Easy pickings 😁 I’ve thought about wading them bushes when the wind is extremely high and rigging is no go. Just take my boat to where I want to go, slam it on the bank and go to wading. Done else where, worth a shot I guess one day. Thanks again
  2. Alien minnows😂 Heard about this product called fire dye from a bait shop down in Louisiana. Just curious about it and wanted to have some fun playing around with it. So gave the shop a call and order one bottle. The stuff cost like 12 dollars a bottle for a one time use. So don’t plan to use this stuff regularly. I’ld be broke😂 But it works well. Was trying to keep track what caught what but, a lot of fish caught yesterday and gave up. WT 56-60.. Clarity is still perfect. Rigging 1/2oz minnow rigs out aways from them bushes where them staging females are moving in and out. Still got dink like crazy but, hey it is Beaver😂. Just pilfered threw them and ended with 14 before running out of time, to needing to get home. Nice to always put a face with a forum member. Pleasure to meet you both yesterday sir. Sick of the wind... God blessed, pics below and yes that slab ate a green minnow 😂
  3. Second time in my life that’s happened.. Got out briefly yesterday after church. Basically got a short hall pass😂 Didn’t expect much. Been several days since on the water. Just wanted to go wet a line and catch a fish. Right away it was on after setting my second rod in the holder. Never could get all rods completely out😂. Stayed like that for about an hour but, the thing was I was getting dinked crazy. Usually I go underneath them and to the bottom but, they were throughout the water column. So, just made the best of the conditions and pilfered through what I could keep on limited time. Water clarity.... Is perfect... WT 53 degrees. Ended with 8... More rain and cold coming this weekend...🙄 God Bless. Pics below... Yes that’s considered a slab😁

  5. 40lb Striper caught ?

    I seen this one posted on a Beaver Report page over the weekend. Said it was caught last week. No weight stated.
  6. Not quite Lance worthy

    Good mess of fish. Ready for a little bobber action in them bushes myself. Once this all settles... Good fishing Lance
  7. Got out Friday and Saturday. Been a temporary bachelor around here and just figured might as well go fish Saturday too. Both days was a slow bite for me. Got to fish Friday a little where I been wanting to go for awhile. The fish seem better quality there but, once the gale force winds kick in and the boat traffic picks up, it makes it difficult. Ended up moving to a little stretch of area for shelter and stayed there. Ended with 15 on Friday Saturday morning that wind was still a gusting. Figure I go try a little of an area where it’s somewhat manageable but, then the wind started tossing my tin can around so, opted for same area as Friday. Ended with 10. Rigging minnows.... WT 57-59 Fish caught Friday where in 10-8 fow and Saturday fish caught where in 5-6 fow. Them males caught Saturday are starting to get their war paint on. Coming up on my favorite method of rigging now 😁 Pics below and God bless

  9. White bucket update

    Yes... They been biting light the past couple trips. Got to watch that line more than tips. Good light rod tips help a lot. If you really get into it I’ld suggest BnM BGJP. 16ft length too. Get them baits away from the boat. Like anything else the more you fish this method the better you’ll get. It takes a lot of water time Learn how they seasonally migrate. Learn how white crappie relate seasonally.... Time, patience and be persistent with it. You’ll get it. Yes... Boat traffic just part of it this time of year... There’s only one spring 😂
  10. White bucket update

    Wouldn’t know how to act if we didn’t have to fish in gail-force winds. These last two Friday trips have felt like work😂 Found an area where we could fish and have somewhat control of the boat. It was a slow bite there but, still came home with 12. WT got up to 57. Rigging minnows, 8-11 fow for the most part My ol coworker AJ.... Yeah, he’s got that fever😂..... God bless

  12. I would move your graph to the center and get these T- bars in the corners. Best bang for the buck. Easy to adjust. Easy, quick grap out of the holder.... I used these for 5 years with no issues. My opinion these are much better than any other expensive T-Bar brand out there. Follow the link http://hitekstuff.com/
  13. White bass😡..... I hate them things.... Next to gar, that’s the last thing I want to see on the end of my line.😂. I’ve hooked up on a white bass in the past on my out side rod and they’ve run all threw the other seven. I’ve had 4 rods go down and make a mess of things.... I catch a couple back to back I’ll pull up my lines and move... There a fun fish to catch the traditional way of fishing but, rigging Its a headache. Cranking... I use my T-Bar holders that I mount up on each side of the bow. I turn them parallel with the sides of the boat. The holder up closest to the trolling motor is a 16 foot BnM pro staff trolling rod. The next holder is a 12 foot BnM PST and then the next holder after that is a 8 foot BnM PST. They face out perpendicular to the bow. I use okuma magda pro line counter reels, 10# mono as backing and then about 100 or so feet of 10# fluorocarbon. I tie on a size 3 swivel so I can change out baits quickly and avoid line twist. The rod closest to the trolling motor has the least amount of line out and the inside rod has the most line counted out. Seem to avoid tangles the best and and to get fish in the easiest without crossing lines Bandit 300’s and Pico cranks are my go to lures of choice when catching summer time crappie fishing. I hope that all makes sense 😂
  14. Never been. Want to... Just always crunched for time. Being that I have 3 and 5 year old girls. I only can usually get out on a Friday mid morning to mid afternoon
  15. MG, 12v, 45#, optima blue top battery... Have a duralast battery that just sits in the floor board as a back up. My tracker is 2010 Pro170. Correct on that... There isn’t any room back there for another battery.. Crammed tight
