  1. Jerkin Bass

    The plan on Sunday was to get the little boat out and catch some of the crappie that Lance has been catching and relocating to lake Crisco. Only had about hour and a 1/2 before dark so decided to go down to a gravel bank and see if could catch any walleye that were moving in to spawn. No walleye but did catch these bass and the one crappie. The one was on a rattletrap and not a jerk bait. The bass almost had no color almost silver. The picture actually gives them more color that you could see with your eyes. The bank has a pretty good slope so these were in 7-8 foot of water. War Eagle arm One posted upside down for some reason.
  2. Oooh got that fever

    Lance, is there an advantage to having the sinker in between your baits? My set up has always been to have the sinker on bottom with the two baits above it tied with Palomar knots
  3. Oooh got that fever

    Lance, keep them coming please. I'm like you, a lot of what I know about fishing this lake I have learned on this board. There has been plenty of trial and error for me but a lot of places, times, techniques, etc. I've picked up here that would not have tried or thought of like these muddy bottom crappie. Going to try and get the little boat out tomorrow. I don't spider rig but will try a double drop rig with minnow top and plastic jig on bottom with a couple of poles.

    Those will make the rockin world go round
  5. Slab Sunday

    How long is that first fish? Looks like a monster
  6. Catch them in that mud, laying on their bellies 😂

    Lance, that is a nice bucket of fish. That thing has had a bunch in it since the time I started lurking on this site. I never equate crappie and mud bottoms though. Wood, rock, gravel, docks, trees, etc. but not mud. Is this just a winter pattern? Thanks
  7. 11/19 Report

    I was further south in the War Eagle arm Sunday and could not net any shad. The color there was more stained than previous, not bad but more than before. Maybe the wind on Friday and Saturday stirred it up? Ended up trolling cranks and jigged a spoon under a shad ball I saw on the locator but only a few small whites. A couple of times would see some small surface activity and would cast to it with a curly tail but no takers. My little lowrance elite 4 doesn't have a temp sensor so only would be a guesstimate on water temp.

    Dan, did you get these on gizzards? I have no luck netting gizzards but been getting threadfin. May go buy some brooders and see if I can luck into one. Congrats on breaking in the boat with a beauty.
  9. 10/31/17 report

    If my tap water in Springdale was any indication of turnover late September would be right. It got fairly skunky smell and taste for awhile.
  10. 10/31/17 report

    Thanks Dan, that gets me excited to get the little runabout launched this weekend. Has the lake started turning over yet that you could tell?
  11. Cajun red line

    Great discussion and thoughts. I 100% agree as well with Wrench and snagged that color, especially for crappie, can and does make a difference. I've seen it many times with multiple people in a boat where one color out fishes all the rest and when the other people in the boat switch to that color their catch rate goes up so that takes out the technique, line size, etc. variables. Another question is do fish see color they same way we see color?
  12. I bought my grandson a Zebco 33 outfit and it came pre spooled with Cajun red mono line on it. I have bought plenty of lures over the years that had a red eye, red gill plate, or other red paint schemes that was supposed to look like a bleeding shiner that the manufacturer claimed would attract fish. If red on a lure attracts fish won't they see red mono line? Should I pull this off and re-spool with some clear mono or floro? Thanks
  13. Small white bass fun

    Wanted to get the boat out Saturday before the front but had some work to do on the house. I know, I need to get my priorities straight. About 5:00 decided to run up the Sidewalk hole and throw some lures from bank. The 10" white bass were hungry. Tossing a small chrome rattle trap they must have been hitting it at full speed. I thought they were going to be much bigger when they hit. A lot of fun on the light spinning outfit I was using. Did catch on 15" largemouth. Not much of a report but maybe the fish are starting to move into the coves after the shad.
  14. Oily plugs

    Thanks for feedback Wrench. Will check these out and see if I can get it smoothed out. Would trolling for long period of time cause the oily issue? My 82 year old dad rode his bike down here to Springdale for BB&BBQ and wanted to go fishing. He likes to troll so we put in at Blue Springs on Beaver went up to War Eagle Marina and back so a long period. I did run it on plane at the very end but that was only for 4-5 minutes. Thanks
  15. I have a small boat I bought from my father in laws estate and has a 1997 25 hp mercury on it. It is idling a little rough and did not know when last time plugs were changed. When I got them out they were fairly oily, not dripping but wet. I know the fuel mix is right so if these are oily is that a sign of bad rings or something else? Should I go with a hotter plug? Spec sheet says NGK BPZ8H-N-10 and that was what was in it. Other than the oil they "looked" good and gap was correct at .040. If plugs are not the issue then maybe just needs idle adjustment? Thanks
