    Quick Trip to Big M- day after thanksgiving

    I've never said that I condone tournaments during the spawn. I'll never understand the negativity toward stocking LMB though.

    Well, I guess my issue is with the MDC and their refusal to stock bass. The hypocrisy of stocking other species but not bass is a tough pill to swallow when other states are very successful in their efforts. It's hard to compare any of the lakes that you listed above to any lakes in Missouri just based on the fact that ALL OF THEM are stocked with LMB. I'll never understand stocking paddlefish or trout when the biggest economical impact is the bass. Just from a business standpoint, it makes very little sense.

    I'm not sure if it's the same at Grand, but it does get hammered. Just look at the facilities there. Wolf Creek is the nicest boat launch facility I've maybe ever seen. It's there to attract tournaments. They do have a lower length limit on Grand at 14 inches, but I'm also under the impression that they stock Florida strain LMB there. I wasn't just suggesting stocking LMB on Table Rock alone either. It needs to be done on all lakes. It's only a matter of time before boat traffic increases on Bull.

    The simple answer is to raise license prices and supplement the population on these lakes with largemouth, period.

    I have a good friend that has bow killed a ton of deer at Busiek. You have to get away from the easily accessed parts, but before he bought a place he bow hunted there constantly.

    I had one over 5 and 3 more over 4 late this summer on Bull. Before this year, I'd never had a keeper smallmouth over there. You're right though, they're very long and lean compared to a 5lber in Wisconsin or Minnesota.

    Your favorite Mcstick and RkCrawler colors

    I like the phantom colors some days too. Honestly, I started throwing a Scatter Rap deep in Ike's Mule or Demon last spring when I fished with someone throwing the RK Crawler. It was amazing how having something different made a difference for me.

    If you're needing someone to show you around on the upper end of Bull Shoals, pm me a little before your next trip down.

    10/24 North Indian, Cow, and a lesson in between

    You might try throwing that A-rig on 50-65lb braid with light wire jig hooks. Most of the time the hook will bend out and you'll at least get your rig back. I've not noticed less bites on braid, but I didn't throw the rig as much this past year.

    Did you repossess your boat? Looks like he's in Brock Moseley's rig today.

    Lost Thermocline and High Blue Did Me In.

    I switched my jig trailers the other day to a paca slim. I cut it down some and also figured out pretty quick that green pumpkin with either blue, orange or chartreuse claw tips was all that got bit. I also downsized from 3/4oz to 3/8-1/2 oz on the actual jig. Hope that helps some too.
