  1. They postponed the event until Oct....and I see that they are starting to postpone the events in the future farther out. I cant imagine how this will impact the resort industry...not so much the virus, all though that is bad, but the loss of income and the uncertainty in the job market right now. C4F
  2. Quill - Here you go being socially responsible! 😵 sorry to hear but probably the right thing to do given all of the uncertainty and the daily updates. Prayers for all of you guys and your families that you are safe and blessed....remember to look out for others during these times. C4F
  3. Best for you folks to stay safe..... Take care C4F
  4. Only a couple of weeks away
  5. So are we just using our hands to grab them out of the water then??? C4F
  6. cheese if you are working let me know and I can bring chips.....also I will bring a sweet something!! C4F
  7. Thanks Patlock - making the OAF tourney is the plan for 2020!!
  8. I am trying to be happy for Quill.......but I am jealous of any that can get on the water.....I guess I could and just about WALK to "my" spot !!😪 C4F
  9. May you have a blessed day - and may we never forget why we celebrate this time.... John 16:33 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. C4F
  10. And a Happy Thanksgiving to all my internet friends .....you are all a great bunch.....and we are truly blessed beyond who we are most days. At least I know that I am..... C4F
  11. Hillbilly - you have found the secret to a long and successful life of fishing...... maybe even a few new toys under the tree since she has caught the bug. C4F
  12. With the change in the weather coming the week of Thanksgiving it will be interesting to see how the trout react! C4F
  13. I use these and they are easy peasy when it comes to moving the float...retying....etc. C4F
  14. Great report and it looks like you are "growing the sport" with that crew you have!
  15. Bill you are right on about the jig and area i.e. long gravel points........ went today and there was a "reasonable" top water until the fog lifted then they wanted to stay deeper. That is when the jig and the drop shot came into play....we probably caught 20 or so before it got to hot since there was no wind. C4F
  16. I was able to get out early today - a lot of fog as you would expect given the temps. I went just past Short Creek, right before the boat ramp, staying on the side with the houses and let the current take me down to Trout Hollow. I threw a brown, sculpin jig towards the bluff wall into the deeper water giving it a pop as I retrieved it, much like what Phil and Duane do on One Cast. I really got into into the numbers and better size but it was off and on, not steady like yesterday. Side note, I had to laugh as there were two guys in an aluminum boat that decided to plant them selves, as in anchor, right out from short creek....and as the numbers of boats increased they would move from one bank to the next.... I think they were the boat traffic calming device....much like a round about. I came in for a few as the traffic picked up and decided to take a young couple that I had met a couple of days before out as they were having no luck off the dock.....that is what happens when you are fishing for trout using a cat rod!! We went up just barely past Trout Hollow and I put him on the jig and gave her the Float / Power worm rig.....for never fishing that kind of rig nor trout she really schooled us two guys....pun intended....I felt a bit sorry for her husband as she was really enjoying catching more than him!!! So yeah the PW and Float is still the deal out there!!! Stay safe and have fun C4F
  17. BG I went back out and caught 12 or so....all came on the jig / pw combo.....here is a picture of what I am using
  18. Sorry to hear that.....there is a guy in a tin red Basstracker.....he was telling me a few minutes ago that he caught a couple of limits in the same area....you are using 2lb line right? C4F
  19. Really?....I just came in for bacon other wise I would be making another pass....I probably caught 15+ from 6:30 till now. The brown and sculpin jig was hot for me in the same places I noted....the best was in front of the docks. By the condos.... C4F

  21. Good report Jester - I fished just below the Trophy area to Lilley's yesterday morning....water temp was in the mid 50's when I started. The bite was steady and there were flurries in areas that I drifted by. I used the pink worm under a float....float depth depending the water depth. Then would switch up to a ginger and brown jig and that was crazy good. It really and I mean really started to get busy in that area so after a short break I decided to work my way from Lilley's towards the Landing. From here down the jig in the color mentioned was the cat's meow!! I was fishing the bank on the North side as much as possible.... The crazy thing was the numbers....not so much the size...even though there were some chunky ones....and fight!!. And to top it off many times I was the only boat in the area until I got to around Monkey Island to the Landing. Moral of the story - there is fish in every area.... Stay safe out there today C4F
  22. Great report Ryan - I appreciate the pictures and the detail.....I am due to come down in 7 days and 8 hours! I tell ya that Duane and jerkbait combo is the cats meow! I dont know what his secret is but I think that he is the trout whisperer......I went with him one morning and he flat kicked my butt....and we were fishing the same set up! There was a point where he put his rod down and I swear I saw 2-3 come to the boat wondering where he was! C4F
  23. I would take what Bo, Quill and M&M said and work all of that into an overall plan......like you I had a tendency to spend to much time in one spot while "thinking" there are Bass under the boat!! Today I do try different baits, presentations and depths while fishing. Then set an internal time and leave going to a new place. Through the forum and other sites I developed a better understanding of what my expensive time and water temp devices were really telling me!! C4F
