  1. I use a Kistler for deep cranking. Forget which one. It’s ok. Been eyeing the Jacob Wheeler series ducket rods and curious if anyone can comment on it for big plugs.
  2. This is what I use. It may be a little wimpy for some people but I love the way it loads and the balance while fishing.
  3. The top water bite was slower this morning but managed a few before it was over. Attached are some pics from the last 2 days, including a really nice 19.5” smallmouth that I caught on top this morning. She knocked my spook 3’ in the air but missed it and when I went to walk it again the lure was fouled on the leader and would not work, so I dropped that rod and left the spook floating. Grabbed another rod with a red fin and threw it Into the action. And of course the fish hit the spook with the rod now laying on the floor! I dropped the Redfin rod picked up the spook rod and get her in the boat. It was comical.
  4. Caught some on a spook on a main lake point early. Had a clear one-knocker on, caught 2 and missed several. Should have used white, which I realized I left on the dock. It’s hard to leave active fish but should have. The surfacing fish seemed to be big singles, not packs like normal this time of year. Final did go get my gear, went back and caught one quickly before it was over. Moved to a gravel run out and caught a great smallmouth on a 1/2oz pbj football head jig with cinnamon twin tail grub dragged like a c rig, that spit it at the boat. Switched to a pbj ned and caught 2 more before going in. Also, checked a big brush pile on a another gravel point for drop shot fish before I left but no one home yet.
  5. 10-12” dark power dark worm at night around docks for LM.
  6. Just got down today and saw several good ones in the shade under the dock. You might try a dock pattern. Let us know how you do and share pics.
  7. Nice. Here’s mine. First rod of only a few I’ve ever built.
  8. Thanks for looking it up. A great article by someone that knows a little about fishing himself.
  9. Thanks Bo for the continued reports. Nice to hear from Champ again. The spinnerbait looks familiar...like something you may have won last year in the fantasy fishing group. Spot remover maybe?😉
  10. I missed a tournament early, lost interest and bailed. However, looking forward to settling up with the winners. Thanks for coordinating Brett. David
  11. I found out recently my garage could accommodate a new Basscat Pantera Classic. A 19’ class boat in a conventional garage....23’x97”. I can’t justify it yet but reality is closer than its ever been. Anyway you could frame out an alcove to get an additional few feet for the motor?
  12. Attached is a pic of a giant shade ball under the dock...a 4 stall dock with a swim platform. The perimeter of the ball was larger than the footprint of the dock. Crazy. I hope the pic comes through well enough to see
  13. I’m not ashamed to say we struggled. Only caught a few fish each day but had a great time. We fished the lower end and had water temps from 54 to 59. The slime got worse each day and made it difficult to fish bottom baits. We tried fishing deeper without any luck and then threw more of the swim bait, jerk bait and dreaded A-Rig. Biggest fish was a 2lb LM just inside persimmon hollow on a 2.8 kietech. The fish were busting shad but not like I’m used to seeing the Kentucky’s do. They were being more strategic. Sure enough it was a school of LM’s. I caught the one and my partner broke off a better one and we thought it was on. But it was over quickly. The rest of our fish were Kentuckys here and there including a few in the back of the cove we don’t mention, but they were nothing like Brett’s fatties. The sportsmanship from others was great. No issues and a lot of respect. By Sunday we saw lots of cruising fish shallow. I agree with others who commented on the shad. They were everywhere. Hard to compete with the real thing. Congrats to everyone that cashed checks. David
