    WEEKEND CRAPPIE

    Buy my shiners at a small baitshop in Fairplay. Right on hwy32 as you go thru town. Think its called "Day Sons" They have BIG Leeches too for you walleye guys !! Fair prices on the bait too. They dont count your minnows one by one as alot do !!
  3. Posting a bit late. Stayed at Orleans Trail. Small get together with some cousins from KC area. Fished sat, sun and monday. Fished for crappie on sat morning with a couple cousins. Had 42 by 11am. No pics of them. Did some walleye fishing after that. No luck. Fish fry that evening !! Wife and i fished sat and sun mornings for crappie. Limits for both days. Pic is of these. Monday afternoon we were driving around looking for a good spot to swim and i ran across i giant boulder or Bus on the graph. Loaded with fish. Had to stop and fish it. Did some vertical jigging with a spoon and caught 21 brownies and a couple spots. Ranged from 10 to 14 inches. Fatter then toads and puking little shads. There were 2-4 other fish following everyone that i reeled in. All the while my wife was at the rear of the boat swimming and having a beer !! One of the best weekends ive ever had on this lake. Hard to believe it happened in late july. Did try fishing with green lights after dark. Not one crappie !! Couple on jigs. Rest on shiners. None on toughies. SHINERS is all i can say !!

    WEEKEND CRAPPIE

    Still fishing main lake brushpiles. Ones sitting in 25 - 35 ft of water have been best. Most of these have been topping out around 15-20ft deep. Catching most right on top of the BP. If we werent occasionally ticking the brush or getting snagged we werent catching any. Hardly any bites fishing deeper along the sides of the BP. Depending on location we were seeing a thermocline from 20-25 ft deep. As far as night fishing they have me stumped. An example on sat eve we set up on a BP at 7pm. Immediately started catching fish. Lasted til dark then shut off completely. Put the light out at 8pm hoping the bite would continue on into dark. Fished till 11pm. Not one bite after 9:30pm other then a few cats and drum. With a 100+ fish caught by all of us over three days i think we had 5 or 6 that wouldnt measure !! Opposite of Pomme. Would have to catch a 100 to get a limit !! Good luck with your nite fishing. Wish i could be of more help. See a black, blue and charcoal LOWE tritoon that be Me. Stop and say hey !! Be north of the mile long bridge.

    7-15 Crappie

    Another great evening of brush pile fishing. From 7p till dark. 3 different BP's. All have been producing. Came home with 27. Not one under 10". Had two right at 15". This year has been the best ever for me as far as size. 40yrs +/- !

    7-10 crappie

    Was fishing standing timber past few weeks with little luck. Finally started focusing on main lake BP's. Thats where they are. As far as what ive found the BP needs to be in 25-35 fow. Shallower ones seem to only have bass and bluegill on them. Have to put up with the boat traffic (wakeboarders) only downside to the main lake fishing. I seem to attrack them !! Shiners better then toughies too.

    ROD HOLDER QUESTION

    ROD HOLDER QUESTION

    I have some Attwood plastic rod holders that have the rotating locking pin. This system looks just like the Scotty Rod Holders use. Anyone know if the components between both manufactures are compatible with each other ?? I've seen a square rail mount that Scotty makes that would work better for me vs the one Attwood makes. Thanks
  14. I recently bought an Ulterra for my Crestliner TC17 and for the "wifes" new tritoon - Lowe SF212WT. Awesome TM. Best thing ever invented in my opinion. Mine is a 24v though. 80lb thrust. No shortage of power even with the tritoon. Bit overkill on the TC17 but it was already rigged for 24v. If your boats not too large i would think the 12v should be fine. Might be limited to how much wind you can be in. I got the HD quick disconnect mount and an extra puck from MK so i could use the TM on either boat. I wasnt buying two of them !! Fished three days straight without any charging of the batteries. No noticeable loss of power. Very impressed with the unit. Spotlock, auto pilot, etc... works great !! Anyone sees us on the lake and want to check out the TM or the boat just flag us down !!

    MINNOWS ??

    Anyone know of a baitshop that will sell minnows by the pound ? I used to get them from the Happy Hook in stockton but seems hes out of business !! He had a nice place with lots of gear and seemed fairly busy. I usually get 4-5 lbs at a time and keep in my own tank. Hate driving 20 miles outa my way to get minnows everytime i go.
