  1. That is typical behavior for bass in any lake that has gizzard shad, threadfin shad, alewives, or any other schooling preyfish.....Just because you've been fishing the banks your whole life doesn't mean they weren't out there before.
  2. Best brown float?

    The water from the falls to James bridge has always produced best for me on browns.
  3. Walleye

    try vertical jigging a 2.5-4 inch gulp minnow with a VMC mooneye jighead on this spot on a spot locations. Seems to be better than the jigging raps for me in the summer in my lakes. http://www.rapala.com/vmc/jigs/walleye-jigs/nme-neon-moon-eye-jig/NME+Neon+Moon+Eye+Jig.html https://www.fishusa.com/product/Berkley-Gulp-3-and-4-Minnow
  4. Your best single double

    Mine are typically in April on suspending jerkbaits or September on crankbaits or top water but have doubled up in the summer on occasion too. Have had several multi species doubles, LMB/longear sunfish, HSB/LMB, SMB/LMB, and even a Muskie/bigmouth buffalo one time but the buffalo was foul hooked and was either snagged or the Muskie attempted to eat it.
  5. Your best single double

    I normally hookup with two fish on the same lure once or twice a year. Yesterday I hooked two good fish on one cast, a 20.5 " smallmouth and a 17.5. I felt like it was going to happen as I had fish trailing hooked fish all day. This one was unique as the large fish was the first one hooked and a smaller fish tried to take it. It was a great day!
  6. "Banner" Day?

    Thewhitesnoop has got an inferiority complex...
  7. Another weekend of...

    I have too, but nothing good comes easy. Gotta keep after it or else the meat hogs and river rapers get whatever they want. Make sure your voice is heard.

    Now is the time to make your comments heard. MDC is in the process of taking comments on all wildlife regulations. Attend an open house and make yourself heard.
  9. Surprising lack of activity on this forum.

    I've caught a few nice walleye there up to 26". Don't expect to catch one unless you put in a lot of time.
  10. Surprising lack of activity on this forum.

    Tons of wake boats and recreational boats during the summer. Great bass, crappie and Muskie fishing if you can figure them out. I fish it more than most lakes in the area.

    Looking good!
  12. Gulp Minnows

    I love them. They are one of the best vertical fishing baits made when paired with the right jighead. I like this jighead by far the best when vertical fishing. Smelt and pearl are my go to colors. A little super glue helps. Great after a shad hatch... https://www.fishusa.com/product/VMC-Neon-Moon-Eye-Jigs?utm_source=google_ps&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google_ps&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI0am2junI1AIVgrXACh2edAGWEAkYAyABEgKjM_D_BwE&utm_source=google_ps&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google_ps&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI0am2junI1AIVgrXACh2edAGWEAkYAyABEgKjM_D_BwE

    I think that there is a need for both free swinging heads and inline weighted heads. Each has its place. I'd be more opt to throw the free swinging head at night or in higher/darker water. Nutech/BO's jighead should be great as a head for them. I use 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 most often. I agree with Al that you will want to clean up the swivel attachment points. A pair of round bend pliers will help with that dramatically. There are also some specialized tools available for cleaner bends. Using the clasp attachment should work but I prefer split rings and sampo swivels. Play around with the arm length until you find something that works. Shorter is good for some situations and blade shape and size, longer is better for others. This is especially important if you plan to fish them as they drop. Blade sizes and shape can be very important. Hook shank length and hook size is critical. A skirt keeper (for jig skirts) slipped over the line tie will prevent the line from pulling under the arms and facilitates use of a snap, or you can add a short length or wire as Al mentioned. Craft fur and rabbit fur are Great but I use bucktail, CF, Angel hair, silicone and just a trailer. Just a Keiteck or RI Little Dipper on these can be deadly... I buy R bend spinnerbaits frames and pre-bent twin arm wires and supplies from lurepartsonline.com and modify as needed. They have everything you'll need.
  14. "Expert" anglers

    Doubt it... Had to specify whether they were caught or released when the tag was submitted. I caught quite a few myself from April to December of that year. And nothing would illustrate vulnerability to angling better than a single person traveling around the multiple watersheds catching "the vast majority" of the hundreds of fish tagged.
