    Happy Fathers Day

    I agree and wish a happy Father’s Day to all the fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers and those that bring meaning to a child’s life. Instill values in the children. Today at Mass the priest said, “ give a person a fish and he eats today. Teach him to fish and he will eat forever.” Thank you to all the folks on this forum for all you do to share your knowledge Mike

  4. abk, thanks for letting me know you’ll be down here this weekend. I’m gonna head to STL to avoid the flying jig heads around the dam. Good luck. I’ll be waiting to read the report and see the pictures. Actually, I’m going to STL for the high school musical theater awards at the Fox, presented by the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation. My daughter is the exec director of the foundation and they honor high school musical theater departments. Mike

    June 5, Big M area

    I use a MH rod with 20 lb flouro and a 10 lb leader about 2’ Long. I use a glass bead above and below the weight then a barrel swivel befor the leader. I usually use a 6” lizzard in watermelon red flake. But I certainly am open to suggestions. Mike
  6. rps, nice pictures and sounds like a good couple of hours of topwater fun. Mike
  7. bo, yes but it was during the slime period in the dam area so not much luck. Now that we’ve got a summer pattern here I will be bottom bumping waiting for that thump-thump. Mike
  8. Bo, I agree about the versatility of a jig. But have not caught a jig fish yet this spring. I know it will happen and I keep experimenting with different sizes and colors. Mike

  10. Bill, thanks for the information, I experienced the same thing. I went out of moonshine this morning at 5:45am. I found the same thing in Jakes creek. Caught one keeper SM on a plopper. Missed a couple others that blew up on it. Saw the first wake boat at 6:30 am water was a sheet of glass with not even a small ripple. I think it is turning over too. Decided to get off the water at 9:15 am. It was very August like weather out there today. Mike

  13. Patlock and I launched from moonshine ramp at 5:30am Saturday. Fog was south so we headed to the rock lane marina cove. Boats on first 3 points into the cove from the main lake. We fished a small cove on the right and had a decent 4 hours. Patlock can confirm bill Babler’s post about the smallmouth being angry at the plopper. He was throwing it and a 3 lb SM blew up on it about ten feet from the boat. It was a savage hit and hookup. We saw other blowups as the shad were thick in there. I saw a blowup within casting distance so I tossed a Ned into the center of the water ring. A few seconds later I felt a tick, tick on my line, set the hook and the picture below is what I caught. Nice fight on the 6 lb line. In the 4 hours we caught 15 fish, 4 of them were keepers. Both LM and SM. Caught fish on plopper and Ned but really didn’t thrown anything else. Patlock caught a keeper KY on a Ned and as I was netting it there was another one the same size trying to get at the lure. I tried to dip them both but the one swam deep. At 7:30 am we saw the first wake boat. By 9:30 am we threw up the white flag and surrendered to the boaters. WT was 79.7 when we started and 80.6 when we took out. Water was clear and only one area had green slime. Mike
