    Learned to fish on Bull Shoals, Taneycomo, and Table Rock. Now, because of living in Kansas City, I mostly bass fish Truman and upper Lake of the Ozarks....and some smaller lakes in the Kansas City area. I get down to Table Rock 4-5 times a year. Really enjoy getting my 6 year old son on the water at sunrise for a good top water bite, then a little dropshot (video game fishing), some "fast" boat driving (50 mph), then back to the cabin for some outdoor fun. Absolutely love Table Rock, and hope to one day have a little place on the lake.

  1. Appreciate all the detailed info regarding your setup, Bill. Question.....do you ever fish the pink worm shallower than 7’6”.....does the small swivel fit through the carrot float....or do you need to shorten the leader for that? I like the idea of the carrot float. It seems like it would be less likely to damage the line compared to the weighted “clip on” style float. I use the clip one all the time but I’ve always been a little concerned about it damaging that delicate line. Is there a specific size float you prefer? Is the small pink worm heavy enough to cause the float to stand up, or does it lay on its side? I appreciate everyone’s input on refining this fun technique. thanks
  2. Simply awesome. Well done sir...you deserve it!
  3. We used these gammy 6/8 circle hooks about a month ago with my 11 year old son drifting the pink worm on a drift rig. We threaded the worm 1/3- almost half the way up the line and had the hook point coming out about the middle of the worm. Between us we caught about 15 fish in 2 drifts from cooper creek to monkey island and all were hooked in the corner of the mouth. We were using a light action rod with a very soft tip and let the fish just keep biting until they hooked themselves. Lots of fun and no gut hooked fish.
  4. I don’t have any current information but in my experience you need to get out early (like 30 min before sunrise) to find the morning topwater deal. Watch for surfacing fish and toss a topwater or grub into them. Also have a ned rig handy for numbers of bites later on. Table rock can be pretty tough in the heat of the summer if you’re not familiar with the lake. If you really want to get your nephew on some fish, take a morning and go down to Taneycomo, stop in at Lilley’s Landing and have them get you set up to catch some trout. I don’t think you’d be disappointed with that decision. Best of luck.
  5. I’ve really enjoyed your posts over the years. Good luck in your travels and future fishing endeavors.

    Enjoyed watching Wheeler catch fish on the double fluke rig. Never tried it... do you guys throw it?
  7. Airstream, 6” or 6.5”.
  8. I picked all three rods up today and feel like, for under 40 bucks apiece, I did OK. I really like the seven footer. I think it will be great for the jig and float technique on Taneycomo, and would be a decent light Ned rig rod/grub Swimming rod as well. I think all three will have a place in my trout fishing arsenal. Thanks for all your input.
  9. I went ahead and ordered all three....for less than the Price of the St. Croix. Free ship to store...can’t go wrong. I may just keep them all...we’ll see. I’m thinking the 7 footer may be a good jig/float rod for my son. Thanks for the input.
  10. i was thinking of picking up a St.Croix panfish series spinning rod for casting light jigs for trout, but just noticed the Airstream series is on sale online at BPS for 39.97. Anyone have any thoughts on which length might best suit this technique? can't decide between the 6', 6'6", and the 7' versions. Im thinking the 6'6", but might just order all 3 and sort it out when they arrive.
  11. Thank you so much for your post. Stay strong in your recovery. I’m checking my steering right now.
  12. Don’t know about the line size, but I use 6lb green BPS excel for all things spinning.....I know there are better choices, but I’m a cheapskate. Also, dedicated topwater setups have 14lb excel.
  13. Bill....any reliable way to hook up with those followers you mention? I’m coming down next week to the dam area and think my young son would get a kick out of hooking up with a follower right at the boat. Maybe a weightless senko or a wacky rig? Thanks.
  14. Still praying.....God bless.

    Wow! Just Awesome. Glad to see you’re raising him to be a Jayhawk. Took my 9 year old out Crappie fishing yesterday and the highlight was a 10lb carp on an ultralight. He’s still excited about it this morning! Memories.... Well done.
