  1. It was busy, but nothing like table rock and did our best to avoid people. We sure didn't take any fish away from anyone. Not a single keeper today.
  2. Are Coe ramps the only ones open right now or are some of the campground ramps available to use? Ive only been to Stockton once but thinking of trying tomorrow to avoid the table rock crowd and bull shoals is just rough at 30ft high.
  3. He had at least 1 brain tumor removed recently, think he had surgery then had to go back to get something else taken out.
  4. I agree with Wheeler, but it's always hard for me to bet against Edwin Evers too.
  5. Yeah I do, but I think it's when they bite it on the fall that they end up swallowing it.
  6. Pinching the barb definitely helps and using that trick to remove a hook when they swallow it makes a heck of a difference. Took awhile to do it very well, but it has definitely made a difference for me going in by the gills and turning the hook out from below rather than coming in from the mouth. I also never have that problem with a ned rig, not sure why there is such a difference.
  7. What jighead or style do you prefer to stupid rig your tubes? I use the little bass pro tender tubes a lot and have issues with fish gut hooking every once in awhile or getting hung up. I don't feel like the ones with a weed guard have helped my issues much. If I can set up a stupid tube correctly though I may use that more often.
  8. We fished the Moonshine Beach area on Friday. Was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't that busy. Guess a lot of people were back to work and maybe the possible early morning rain and high winds kept people away. We definitely fought the wind, borderline dangerous at times with a lot of white caps. Because of that we didn't get to fish many main lake spots. First thing before the wind got too crazy I had a big spotted bass hit my swaver right at the boat, had less than a foot of line out and it hammered but got came off as I tried to flip it. Had a smallmouth later in the day come up to it and snap at it but no hookup that was it on swaver and couldn't get a topwater bite with a walker or whopper plopper. Had found some shad balls but the bass werent feeding in them and didn't see any under them on the graph. The only somewhat pattern we could find was swimbaits/underpins on docks midway back in coves. Marked a lot of fish suspended around the docks but couldn't get any to bite unless they were under it. Had one real nice 19 inch largemouth doing that but mainly 12 inches or smaller. Caught a really fat spot on some gravel with the ned when the wind slowed down some and the sun came out. Had clouds and some rain early with high winds throughout the day and partial sun peeking through at times before coming out later in the afternoon.
  9. Thanks for the tip, how deep of water were you fishing over?
  10. Went back to Tucker Hollow yesterday and only managed 4.....if you count a perch disguised as a bass. 3 on the swimbait again and one on a tube. 2 swimbait fish were on wind blown points, but none of the 4 fish came from the same place. There was a lot more current it seemed yesterday so not sure if that in combination with the weather messed things up. Saw water temps of 59 and saw a lot of suspended fish at times, but couldn't get them to bite. Before I caught my first fish I had 2 follows to the boat and one snap at and miss a feathered walk the dog bait. Did see a lot of small sunfish in the back of a pocket but no bass around at all. After the rain let off, the wind came on fierce and did not make it easy.
  11. Tucker most likely because kdock has much less parking available right now.
  12. We put in there Saturday. Water is high for sure, but you can still put in easily and just have to park in various places around the campground, the courtesy dock was not accessible, so be aware of that. The campground is closed and so was the marina. There were a few people working on the marina who did mention that they had minnows, so if you see them out and you want some, might talk to them. Water continues to stay clear even with it continuing to rise. There were a few floaters, but not terrible.
  13. Put in this morning at Tucker, caught around 10 all on a 3 inchish Swimbait. All were around points and there had to be wind. Fog was horrid to start, was so bad at one point we couldn't go where we planned and got in the closest cove. First cast I had a keeper break me off, probably should have retied after my last trip. Early in the morning I caught them as shallow as 10 ft but was getting bit near 25 ft on the bottom as the sun was higher. Tried a chatterbait and tube but couldn't get a bite. Water temp was around 54 most the day and it was almost bluebird skies. The marina was closed but talked to them for a minute as they were working around the marina. They said they had some minnows already that they were going to have to sell. There was quite a few rigs parked in various places around the campground with the water high.
  14. We fished K Dock area Saturday. Didn't get a ton of fishing in but water temp was 48 and it was really windy. Caught 7 with 1 keeper largemouth, all less than 8ft deep. Most on a tube, couple on a more finesse set up A-rig and one on a rattletrap.
  15. I thought it was, but I didn't start fishing there until 2016-2017, so didn't know about a courtesy dock on the park side. Anything that gets into James River upstream though can get in there. Plus you know the whole power plant thing haha.
