  1. There was a lot of boats out on Saturday I assume those running all the way up the lake for the fishers of men tournament and I think there was another tourney also.
  2. I threw a Whopper plopper but not for long and only when there was some chop, with no bites. Also threw a tube and a small swimbait. Tube caught them inside the pockets, and swimbait on the point.
  3. I couldn't get bit shallow weekend before last. Had a few very small bass shallow this weekend but I'm talking under 10 inches.
  4. Got out again this weekend, didn't do as well but found some on a point and some inside the pockets. No size still. Had 2 on that seemed like better fish but didn't get them in. Saw one that looked to at least be a keeper. Not sure why but I'm either missing the better fish on the bite or not in the right area. Struggling with that this year.
  5. Fished around Mincy on Saturday. It was a nice day to be out on the water, lots of cloud cover, cooler temps and a nice breeze. Caught a dozen bass, only 1 near keeper size but a lot of 12 inchers. Saw water temps between 77 and 79 by the time we finished. Didn't have much luck inside any pockets, main lake bluff and points/entrances to the coves were the best places. Tried topwater with no luck and the ones I caught were on a tube or swimbait. There is still a ton of gar in one of the pockets, figured there was a lot of bait and might find bass around them, but couldn't tell for sure on the graph and didn't catch but one, and hooked what I assume was a gar that I didn't get to see on the swimbait. It felt like it was bobbing its head up and down and didn't act like a bass before it came off. Kdock looked to be under water still just in case anyone was wondering. Didn't check to see if you could put in off the road or not.
  6. Had a good day yesterday. Caught a lot of bass on multiple moving baits. Mainly spots and largemouth, not many smallmouth and the ones we did catch weren't that big. Float was nice but got hot on the last couple bends in the afternoon. Had 3 or 4 right around keeper length and saw quite a few more in the clear water along with tons of big shad and I assume sucker. Fish seemed to be really shallow. Also saw a mink (I think, not sure whatever one calls them around here) and watched a squirell fall out of a tree at the edge of the bank into the water. He ran right back up the bank though, was surprised it lived after falling into such shallow water.
  7. I figure it will continue to slow down based on previous days. The only time I went Horse Creek to Galena the flow was over a 1,100 cfs do didn't really get to fish. Is that stretch a favorite due to floating, fishing, and scenery or just the fishing?
  8. That should have said blunks, but after thinking more about it, probably only going to do one section either horse creek to Galena or Galena to blunks with the slow water. Any suggestions on which of the 2 you would prefer to fish? Thanks
  9. I'm planning to fish from horse creek to blinks I think Saturday. Shouldn't be any issues with the current water level and flow right? I know it may be a little slow but shouldn't be low enough cause problems right?
  10. I dont know but I know it catches big fish. I've only personally seen 2 caught on it. The one I caught and this beast I netted for my buddy.
  11. Slow fishing day Saturday and the temperature was nice, but I did catch my new pb smallmouth. It was 19 inches but didn't get a weight since the scale battery was dead. I would guess somewhere between 2.5 and 3 lbs, it wasn't all that thick and not as strong as the river smallies. Caught on a megabass hazedong swimbait that was given to me a couple years ago and sat in my box, I was lazy and saw it handy after breaking off a chatterbait so I tied it on, sure glad I did. Caught it up by shadowrock park, sure wasn't expecting to catch a smallie there. Water has been really clear for bull shoals from our account.
  12. I still didn't get to test them in the environment most people use them, but I don't see why they wouldn't work. Something different and should last. What color did you use and what river?
  13. I haven't actually floated Finley, but this would be a start to investigate your spots, and also a useful resource for other rivers using the drop down https://www.missouricanoe.org/river-maps/jamesfinley.html.
  14. Yeah.... Didn't mean to start all this lol just wanted to show a pretty fish and wasn't sure what to call it haha
  15. Growing up and still majority of the time they are all perch in my family lol
