  1. Trophy-class largemouths are very hard to come by on this lake anymore. We saw a couple during this past year's Big Bass Tour event, but these days, anything over 6 pounds is a trophy for Table Rock.
  2. Known Bill for going on 20 years and, as most of you already know, he's a man of character and integrity from the soles of his shoes to the little button on top of his cap. As an outdoors writer, tournament angler and guide, I can emphatically say that my time spent in a guide's boat is about learning and not catching. I have the rest of my life to catch fish and I'll probably catch more if I learn something when in the boat with another guide. As for live bait, I have no interest, but I'm sure many tourists and casual fishermen are good with it as long as it gets them some bites. Thanks for all you freely share, Bill. It's a great service you do.
  3. Were you fishing a tournament? Just asking coz of the jersey.
  4. Long story short ... surgery NOT suggested. Gonna try an epidural steroid injection... itโ€™s set Monday afternoon. Truly appreciate all of the prayers and concern. You guys are awesome.
  5. Very nice brown fish. Congrats!
  6. Thanks for the morning laughs, you guys. I needed that! MRI is scheduled today at 12:30 to see what's going on with my back. Seeing the specialist again tomorrow. Ready to get some resolution going. This convalescent state is miserable.
  7. You know as well as anyone that I like to poke fun at any opportunity... especially at myself! ๐Ÿ˜‚ That shallow bite has sure changed over the years as we continue to lose valuable cover for both the baitfish and bass. Anymore, I pay far more attention to rock composition than wood. And I spend more and more time farther out with each passing year.
  8. NOW I know why I can't catch em anymore. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜
  9. The words Prairie Creek and secret should never be used in the same sentence . LOL
  10. Kinda like Prairie Creek on Beaver Lake.
  11. If that's true, I'll never stream a single episode of the BPT or watch another MLF broadcast. Anyone with feelings like that towards the Wood family is bat-crap crazy.
  12. I'm sure there are other ways to make a Fin run right but this works for me. If it saves you guys buying a few extra baits or helps you catch a few more fish, then that's what this forum is about. Just remember โ€ฆ you can only eat em once!
  13. Why should anyone be exempt from being checked for license? The water patrol frequently looks for nav light violations at the takeoffs of just about every sizeable tournament out of Kimberling City.
