  1. That actually makes me feel a little better 😊 still such a pretty night to be out. I was surprised I nearly had the place to myself but that's why I fish Tuesdays
  2. The last two Tuesdays were super productive so I guess the law of averages balanced things out today.. I threw jerkbaits, jigs, then headed to the outlets and tried scuds and midges...not a single bite... I dont think i have the high flow tactics figured out quite yet...i tried some heavier 1/4oz. jigs but I wasn't keeping consistent bottom contact. I did have one pretty cool encounter with about an 18" rainbow. Flipped my midge and float setup upstream to float it down to him..when it got to him he slowly rose and sipped in my pink float...makes me want to start tying some dries.. As far as my new equipment reviews. I LOVE my new pflueger trion combo. I got the 6' medium light with the 30 size reel and its my new favorite trout rod. Super light weight and the reel is super smooth. As for my other purchase, the size 25 Pflueger President reel, I was not overly impressed. It seems like its needs a lube job right out of the box...it ran fairly smooth but it's like i can feel the gear teeth meshing and it makes a very light grinding noise..anyone have a similar experience?

  4. Thanks for the insight Phil, im headed down to bank fish tomorrow evening and hoping for similar results to my past two outings. The fishing on Taneycomo has been outstanding!
  5. Does all this talk about spillway releases mean floodgates opening? Or is a spillway release something totally different? Will all of the trophy area be closed to the public?
  6. Went to bass pro and decided spend another $25 and get into another Pfleuger Trion combo rather than just a rod...ive got two already and the new series look just as slick. Got it spooled up with some 4 pound vanish, cant wait to try it on Tuesday.
  7. I'm looking into the Berkley Lighning Rod Trout in a 7' light action. Anyone try one of these yet? Some reviews say they break easy, some folks swear by them...if not this rod, what is another good setup for throwing small jigs a long way? Looking for something 6'-6" or 7' for a decent price....i really like the pflueger trion rods but i can only find them in a combo.
  8. Hey Dutch, absolutely got them at Taneycomo, there's been a ton of warmwater fish this Spring with all the floodgates running...I'll PM you the color, its not really a secret but I like to pretend my style is just enough different to be "custom" 😜😊
  9. Fished from 5:45 to 8:30 and flat out slayed.. 12-14 white bass, 7-8 smallies, 3 rainbows, 1 walleye....easily my best outing since moving to Missouri, maybe ever....quality was amazing too including my personal best white bass at 19" and personal best rainbow at 20" I might need to start selling my custom bucktail jigs cuz that's all they wanted to hit tonight and it had to be the right color combo or I got nada. What a blast, I might never beat a day like today!
  10. Thanks guys, My highlander is a 4wd with a v6 that shows a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs. The boat im looking at is a Javelin 389 FS. 1590 is listed as the dry weight but im guessing thats without the motor.
  11. Actually now i see on carmax the specs show 5,000 lb towing capcity, any input appreciated
  12. Hi Guys, I have been a shorefisher my whole life i have a boat that im really interested in that weighs 1550 lbs per the online spec sheet. My toyota highlander shows a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs but i know its not that simple right? Im thinking worst case is pulling the boat out of the water ....what information do i need to double check before making a purchase? Thanks!
  13. Thanks Vonreed, for the pictures too! I bought some fresh 1/8oz jigheads today with great hooks!
