  3. What is yalls preferred jighead weight and or hook size for the 4'' Keitech Swing Impact? I was thinking a 1/4, but not sure if the hook would be to long. Thanks.

    Tough fishing for me

    This is our first day here for our trip this year. My partner and I had 52 total and 17 keepers. We're in long creek area. Had a full limit of smallmouth plus 2, 1 Kentucky, and 2 largemouth. Mostly pb&j ned, Carolina rig, a and shaky head. Not quite sure what to look for, as far as a pattern goes.

    Anyone Do Fantasy Fishing?

    Toledo is my home lake and I will say that the grass is spotty. I think they sprayed some the shoreline hay grass, but it has more to do with water clarity and water levels for the growth of the hydrilla. I think this guy is full of crap when he was talking about all the filleted fish. The Lake always has lots of pressure and some folks keep fish, but not to the extent that the article says. I have had an excellent year so far with numbers and size. Maybe this guy had a bad trip. This past week was tough with the rising water, water changing color, water temp dropping, and high pressure. Not to mention the transition the fish are making. P.S. We will be at Table Rock in 13 days!

  10. Swelbo1 -

    I went to TB 30 ago. I don't recall what end of the lake we were on but there were millions of stumps barely under the water.  One guy at the resort we were staying tore up his lower unit the first day before wetting a line. 

    I have 2 boats - 1) a big boat and 2) a 16 ft big wide John boat with a 20 hp Merc. I like to use the John boat on trips.  I used a similar boat there at TB years ago but again I have no idea where we were but the John boat worked fine.

    The question - Would this John boat work in the area discussed in the recent TR thread and to what wind speed?

    Whopper Plopper on Toledo Bend

    I second what DavidB says. We are there every weekend and it is a tough place to navigate in 15+ mph winds. You could stay at fin and feather That is located on the southern end on the tx side in Hausen Bay. Van Dam caught the majority of his big fish in Pirates Cove on the southern end on the LA side. Holler if y'all have any questions

    March 20th. Current Table Rock Report

    Bill, are you using a weighted hook on the swimbaits? If so, how heavy of a weight and hook size? I have a hard time matching the hook size and weight size to the swimbait to make it have the best action. Thanks

    Rod suggestions (on a budget)

    Sorry I was late to the party, but, if you haven't check out the Kistler Carbon Steel rods, they are very good rods with a good warranty and built in the US. The price point is very affordable for a very nice rod.
