    An impossible cast

    Great book on the history of professional bass fishing and the Table Rock/Bull Shoals region. In the book it mentioned Glen wrote a book called "Techniques of Bass Fishing" and later revised it to "Simplicity of Bass Fishing" but I can't find any mention of them online. Anyone know where to find one of these books?

    Fizzing?

    Out of 3 days of fishing last weekend (35-50') we only had one fish that was lethargic and didn't take off like a rocket. I put a trout fly in his lip on a trout leader attached to a weight and put him back deep on a rope. In less than a minute he was yanking that weight around and got off the hook. I think tournament fishing is a whole other story with deep fish. I saw people putting these deep fish in a live well last weekend and then 20 minutes later they are trying to revive them on the surface of the water like a fish that is just worn out from fighting. I doubt that worked very well.

    Fun Family Weekend on Table Rock

    Well that would fit his big old head after catching those two fish!
  4. Had the family down at Table Rock for the weekend. First post here but have learned a lot from the users in this forum. We fished a few hours Friday afternoon and ended up around 19 fish with about 6 keepers to 3 lbs. Drop shot fishing vertical with shad shaped worm in about 45 - 50 ft of water. Started on the bottom and when we hooked a fish it would get pretty lively for 5-10 minutes (assuming we could keep the boat in the general area with the wind). We fished on and off all day Saturday with the same patterns working. Between the four of us we landed about 35 fish with 10 keepers up to 3 plus pounds. We were still fishing vertical but chased a few bait schools when the fish would surface. After I told the kids that I had only been catching small fish when chasing the schools I proceeded to catch two keepers (2+ pounds each) in 5 minutes on a chrome Zinc Spoon. Fished for a while Sunday Morning in the cold, thick fog. Bite slowed down a little but we still found a few good fish throughout the day on the drop shot and a double willow spinner bait fishing under the bait schools. My son, daughter, and son-in-law all had a blast and caught some nice Table Rock Bass this weekend. Thanks for sharing the knowledge in this forum!
