     21” large mouth went a little over 8 pounds on my shitty scale.

    That is an absolute toad! Might be one of those white bass hidden inside of that sow! Congrats! Would have won the one bass competition without having us blow up the photos to see if three more fin rays were over the half inch mark :grin:.

    Slavery exists now, only its called food stamps, welfare, and all of the perks that goes with it.  And the people that make the payments get tired of seeing it go to waste.

    It's political slavery; all for votes and power.

    I’ve been following this forum for a couple years and decided to quit creeping and contribute. 
     

    I read a lot on here about how to troll crankbaits for crappie and started trying it last year with good success.

     

    Yesterday I got my dad out for the first time in years and we had a great day. We ended up 1 shy of our limit due to a miscount in just under 3 hours.

     

    We put in at Greenfield boat ramp and caught all of our fish on the second bank we trolled. Most for around 12” with a few 13” fish mixed in.

     

    We started with Bandit 300’s and 200’s but nearly every fish came on the 200’s so we switched all 4 rods to 200’s.

     

    Multiple times we had 3 fish on at once. Chrome and blue was the best color with the runner up being a green flicker Shad. 
     

    Anyway, thanks for all the help. I am a beginner at this but hope I can help someone like your post helped me.

    Sounds like a great technique. Congrats on a mess of crappie! Great that you were able to take your dad fishing.

    As you can see by the other comments, many of us including myself no longer have that opportunity and miss it dearly. Cherish those time with family!

    Never tried a melon in a pot, how does that work out?

    We grew them last year. Got five small but very tasty cantaloupes. Really just a novelty. Figure if we give them attention this year may get a few more. We'll  see.

    She likes to fry the stuff, 6 slices were 1.25 lbs, couldn't being myself to take a photo of boloney, but she was sure excited.

    I actually really like pan-fried bologna, but prefer thinner slices. As a kid that was one of the few things that my dad would make us - fried baloney sandwiches :D.

    I'll admit I'm not a big fan of Jeff Bridges and thus have never seen the Big Lebowski :rolleyes:. Against my prejudice I actually liked his reboot of True Grit and R.I.P.D. is kind of a guilty pleasure movie for us.

    Other "classic" movies that I have never seen are the Big Chill and St Elmo's Fire. Or Kingpin (another bowling movie)

    Drifting scuds on a drift rig is still dynamite.  Our best bite today was from fall creek down all the way to lilleys.  I put a drift rig on my daughters little spin cast rod and she caught quite a few drifting an orange and a pink scud. Hate to admit it but she was out fishing me pretty good while there was cloud cover but once the sun got up the grey scud shined again today. I'm using a size 12.  Here favorite part of the day was stopping by Lilleys and meeting Jackson though :)

    Looks like a great time. Congratulations to you both!

    Barren Fork was a tricky one for me as well, was fortunate enough to luck into a really nice colored up rainbow to achieve my silver on the slam. Seems we have a lot in common, as I am headed to college this fall and I also only have the NFOW and the Eleven Point to go. Best of luck to you, maybe we will run into eachother on the water.

    Awesome rainbow! Congrats and good luck on the rest of your Slam! The hardest parts are over. 11pt is by far more accessible to waders than the NFOW. For the NFOW if you don't have a canoe or kayak, I would look into Sunburst ranch or canoe/kayak rentals or shuttles.
