  1. Ned Rig and Shaky head. Had one on a phantom Rockcrawler, but the finesse presentation was the key. Don't get in a hurry, fish slow. Most of the fish you could not feel thump it, just felt a spongy rod tip when you went to move the bait.
  2. Put in at Hawker point today, and just about left immediately when I saw the clarity of the water. In the past I have gone out of my way to avoid crystal clear water. Graph read 12 feet and I could see bottom. Decided that it would be a good learning opportunity so i picked up the spinning rod with 4 lb test with a finesse rig, and ended up having the best day I have ever had on Stockton. A lot of fish starting to move up, didn't see any beds, but lots of fish cruising anywhere from 2-12 feet. Most fish were in the 14-16 inch range, but did have a 6. 2 lb largemouth; on 4 lb line it was a bit nerve racking, but ultimately got it in the boat. There were fish on every bank I hit; steep banks, gradual sloping banks, chunk rock and gravel. I can guarantee that clear water will never scare me off again, I'll just throw the heavy stuff in the rod box and pick up the finesse gear.

  4. It was a tough day. I was hoping it wasn't just me who was unable to find many fish. I had two 16 inch keepers near Birch branch both of which came on a rockcrawler about 5 cast apart, and that was the only two fish I caught.
  5. Me and a buddy caught 6 in about an hour last night at Shoals motel. 4 smaller, but keeper males, and 2 in the 40-50 lb range. Water was up and rolling swift and muddy. Few places to stand on the bank due to the water level, but they were there.
  6. I fished for about 4 hours yesterday and did pretty well on a crankbait. Had 4 keepers, best of which was around 4 lbs. All in less than 12 feet of water. Had several shorts as well. 49 was the best temp I found yesterday.
  7. Anyone know how bad of shape these spots are? I'm not sure how much rain you got north, I know parts of table rock got it pretty bad. Hoping Turnback and the little sac faired a bit better.
  8. Just wondering if anyone had been in this area in the last day or two? I would sure appreciate anyone who could update me on water temps.
  9. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. I've read the reports on here for the past few months and finally decided to join. I have not been on table rock in a few years, and was wondering if the Ahoys ramp is still open. I understand that the Kimberling Inn is either closed or under construction? Thanks in advance for the help.
