    Long Creek 5/18-5/21

    Yes it was great for that short amount of time, I think it was a combination of the wind finally picking up and the storms starting to roll through the area. Just wish it wouldn’t have taken 3 days for the stars to align and the fish to finally cooperate! Ha

    Long Creek 5/18-5/21

    Well we gave it our all anyways... caught a few small largemouth Friday evening just running the banks close to the resort with a spinner bait, but were mostly just sight seeing. We didn’t get a chance to get on the water again till this morning (Sunday). Couldn’t get the skunk out till close to noon when the wife landed a nice 14” spot. About 5 this evening we finally got on a decent pattern throwing a Texas rigged green pumpkin trick worm on secondary points in the 5-12’ range. Caught 25 spots and largemouth in a little over an hour with 11 being (barely) keeper size. Not quite as much action as we hoped for but we saw some beautiful scenery and will definitely be back. The views alone are worth the trip! Tight lines!

    I knew they would be biting good at Stockton this weekend, while I’m at Tablerock showing all of Taney county how NOT to catch fish! 😂

    Long Creek 5/18-5/21

    The wife and I will be staying at big cedar this weekend and she agreed to take the boat (wife of the year, I know). Only problem is, this will be my first time on Tablerock and we’ll be on an arm of the lake that I never hear much about. Does anyone have any reports or tips for The Long Creek area? Also how is the big boat traffic around there? I can’t imagine it being any worse than LOZ but I could be wrong... any help is greatly appreciated!

    What a “crappie” day

    Only Had about 2 hours to fish this morning so instead of the usual flippin’ jig and spinner bait I tried some crappie fishing. Ended up with 11 crappie, 10 being keepers in the 11-13” range and a bonus 17” walleye. All caught on a roadrunner from right on the bank out to 3’ on flatter gravel banks. Also picked up 8 bass (all males) with 3 being keepers, all on or near beds.

    Way to find them! We were at CC yesterday afternoon too, had one bite on a minnow (missed it) in about 2 hours so we tied on the a-rigs and caught a limit of white bass

    29 pounds!? Wow! Glad we left before weigh in, after the day we had I don’t think I could’ve handled that kick in the gut LOL! Seems like there’s getting to be bigger and bigger bags weighed at Stockton every year

    Johnson fuel pump help!

    Thanks wrench!
  9. Needing to replace the fuel pump on my 1987 Johnson GT200. It still has the original VRO pump, still working, but the pump housing is cracked. I want to stay with the VRO and have found several places to order one, just wondering if anyone might know the part number I need? Thanks in advance!

    Have any of you guys tried the megabass knock offs? I’ve been thinking about ordering a few blanks and painting them myself but if they’re not somewhat comparable to the real 110’s then I don’t want to waste my money..

    2/28 Bass Fishing

    Awesome report, I might end up dragging the boat over this weekend after all

    Ive always seemed to have better luck on a black and blue jig with a chigger craw trailer, usually a 3/8 to 1/2 oz ball head jig does the trick

    First Bass of the Year 2-17-18

    I was very surprised to see how much the lake had warmed since my last visit, the creek we fished was 38 degrees a week before these pictures were taken. The bass will be getting real hot any day now
