  1. Thanks Champ, I honestly didn’t know what to do today. An undisclosed amount of rods and reels were laying on an undisclosed ramp. It looks like they were night fishing and set them out to put into the bed of the truck and pulled away.. If I left them there, the next guy might’ve just called it a done deal. I’d like to see them back in the right hands for sure.
  2. I’m hoping to find the owners of some rods and reels that were laying on the ramp at one of our local lakes. I went to load up the boat and found them laying in the middle of the ramp (public ramp). It was raining and I’m assuming someone grabbed them as a group out of the boat and laid them to the side. I initially picked them up and put them in the grass to prevent running them over. There were no other rigs there, I waited around for about 15 minutes and put them in the boat. If anyone hears of anyone who left behind rods/reels and can give me an accurate description, get ahold of me.
  3. I think when I have the biggest problem is out on the lake gluing on a new grub, jig trailer, swimbait, ned rig, etc...If I know exactly how I'm going to be fishing, I'll glue up a few prerigged baits. Pretty soon, I end up with a little box of prerigged baits that end up rusting due to the salt content. Taking the time out to apply super glue with a toothpick while I'm also trying to control the boat is a little too much to ask.
  4. Anyone else get tired of only getting a few uses from a tube of Super Glue before the cap sticks to the nozzle? I can usually twist the cap off with pliers, damage the nozzle, and get a few more baits glued, but what a waste! I've thrown away well over a dozen bottles this year. Any responsible super glue users ever get to use the full tube before it's trash time? What gives?

  7. Thanks for your replies. I'll keep checking. I'm handy enough to do a hack job myself, but I'd like to pay the right person to do it right. I called a local boat dealer referred to me by Basscat. He quoted me $2,000 if I supplied the carpet.
  8. I'm looking to have the boat carpet replaced in my Basscat. Any recommendations on where to take it? I live in Nixa but would drive a little ways out.
  9. Yes, Thursday night from what the radio said. I talked to some family today, it sounds like in Bolivar they really only had about .5 inches, but Morrisville had 5 inches. Dadeville area has as much as 10. That would put that water over at Stockton, which could use some help.
  10. I heard Bolivar had 6 inches of rain Thursday night. According to the USGS river gauge, there was no change in Pomme river level, which doesn't make sense. I know the lake is creeping up, how trashed is the Bolivar Landing area?
  11. This time of year, there are plenty of VISIBLE fish on beds. You can choose not to fish for those fish, but what is your alternative? We know there are plenty of fish that spawn back in creeks and pockets, but also there are those spawning on main lake points, bluffs, in cedar trees, boat dock lifts etc... I guess if a person is that concerned about harming fish during the spawn, he could just abstain from fishing for a couple of months.
  12. The RC Stick is obviously a Megabass knockoff, but Rick Clunn made a very good point last year while giving a seminar. He a trip to Japan to educate them about bass fishing, and literally was the first angler to bring jerkbaits to them and show them how they work. Who Made Who?
  13. If you're needing both knees replaced, I would definitely consider doing them together. I work in physical therapy, and have had countless patients tell me that their "new knee" is now their good side, before completing therapy. I've had many others who never got around to doing the second one, and the pain keeps them from walking altogether later in life.
  14. Nice work. I'm curious about the Spin Jig. Are you talking about an underspin?
  15. We stayed Friday/Saturday night at Lakewoods Resort in Protem. Good people and a great place to take a family. Somehow I ended up randomly staying in a cabin right next door to an old friend that I've known for over twenty years, and was able to catch up on old times. We actually began fishing together as kids tromping through fields and sneaking into farm ponds. I ran trotlines and noodles with him Friday and Saturday night and he ended up with a nice mess of channels, a couple of blues and a flathead. They made for an excellent fish fry Saturday evening with many of his friends and family. I dropped the boat in for a solo morning trip at daylight and fished in the rain till 12, coming in for lunch, and later out for a few more hours with the family in the afternoon. Most of my Bull Shoals fishing experience has been from Lead Hill to K-Dock, so aside from one specific spot, near Buck Creek, I had never fished the area before. It rained the majority of the time, ranging from a light sprinkle to brief downpours, with a pretty good wind blowing straight into Buck Creek. The lake was also about 14' high. First off, I ran halfway back into a major creek and picked a few deeper points to toss the Ned rig before working my way back into the pocket. Short walleye right off the bat with the Ned, followed by a couple of short smallies. The conditions looked right for a spinnerbait, but only managed one smallmouth with it. I spent about half the morning fishing in creeks and the other half on main lake points. I graphed a ton of fish suspended high in the water column and was able to catch several smallmouth and later blacks on a smoke grub.There was some random surface activity, but nothing that stayed up, and only managed one short smallies on a zara spook, I did have one 14.5" brownie on a fluke, but for the most part I alternated between the grub and ned rig all day with several fish coming from mouths of creeks on the steeper points. One point yielded a dozen fish, and is also where a lost a nice KY and walleye come off at the boat. I boated roughly 40 fish, mostly smallmouth, but never physically touched a keeper. The blacks I caught were back in a creek on a channel bank eating the grub as it cleared the outside brushline. I think those outside bushes probably are holding a lot of fish right now, but I couldn't figure out how to catch the bigger ones. Fishing out deeper actually produced some of the smallest fish for me with some coming from 22-24'. Right now, you can get bit on just about every type of point or creek channel bank, with the easy fish coming just out from the brush. I planned on taking out the family Sunday, but with the full day of rain heading that way, we packed it up and headed back home. We did stop at Fat Daddy's BBQ in Forsyth for breakfast, and had an excellent breakfast (strongly recommend the smoked ham. All in al, l a great time for a shortened holiday weekend.
