    I’ll be in the area. Pick some dates and I’ll try to block some time off on the calendar.  Would love to watch Rick log a few more lunkers in his book.

    My how things have changed! Fishing was flat out TOUGH in the trophy area the past few times I have fished, but Saturday it seemed to be its normal self. Fishing the Elfrink Tournament my partner and I boated close to 80 fish. And all were healthy, fat beauties. I always fish up in the tournaments because of the crowds. I don't care about winning, really, and just use it as an excuse to fish and hone my skills. Driving back to Lilley's dock very much solidified that sentiment as I had to navigate through armada after armada of boats. No thanks!
    We started off throwing jerkbaits (McStick in Ghost Norman Flake and a 6th Sense Provoke in Pearl White) from Lookout through the Narrows. First cast I landed a 17-inch rainbow. We picked up quite a few great slot fish on the drift. It seems the jerkbait bite has slowed considerably over the past couple of years (unless you're Duane), and I think it has to do with a lot. Pressure, lake conditions, etc. But it was very good Saturday. I lost a very large rainbow at the cable that hit with roughly 10-feet of line out. I set the hook, line snapped, and the fish came to the surface to shake the bait. It would have definitely won big fish and put us in the money, but oh well. 
    Once the sun got high we started dragging Duane's small jerkbaits on a drift rig and we absolutely CRUSHED fish. First one was a fat 18.5-inch brown, which was sad. Partner had one on by Point Royale that came to the surface immediately. Never saw the whole fish but it slashed around and its tail came out of the water and it was another 5-6-lb rainbow I'd guess. Threw the bait. We could not go 25-yards without getting a fish from Trophy Run to the Narrows dragging the baits. It was incredible!
    I tied up a 1/16-ounce olive/light olive jig and they hammered that everywhere, too. Sometimes the fish would be on already as I reeled down to start jigging after my cast. Dragging a tan size 14 scud was also on fire. I would pitch it into a riffle on a flat and before I could reel down there was a fish on. 
    I went up below the dam to wade the banks on Sunday afternoon and it was incredible up there, too. I caught numerous 18-20-inch fish between outlet two and three. I ended up catching my PB Taneycomo rainbow on my hand-tied size 20 soft hackle, too! I measured it at 24-inches, but because it was pouring rain, I was in the water, and all alone...no pic. It was a beautifully colored male. 
    As I walked down to outlet two to survey the situation, I saw a gentleman had on what looked like a good fish. He was alone as well. I walked down and helped him net it and take pics. It was a 23-inch rainbow, also his personal best!

    It was nice to have a weekend where the fish were cooperating like you want on Taneycomo!

    My partner and I got so lucky that we finished second in the tournament. We fished from Fall Creek to the bridges picking up fish all the way but most were just stockers however once in awhile we would get a decent one. With about 10 minutes left my partner caught a 3 1/2 lber and on my last cast. We ended up with just over 10lbs and were overjoyed as we were eating it was still hard to believe we got so lucky. Congratulations to the guys that won and kudos to the Lilleys and their staff for putting on such a great outting. Hope to do even better next year.

    duckydoty reacted to fishinwrench in Lie detector test, What is going on??   
    They pay the examiner about 400.00 if an examiner is actually present.
    The purpose of the test is to shut up anyone that happens to throw a fit about being "cheated".  And to deter anyone from trying to cheat by requiring them to agree to submit to a polygraph test IF THEY WIN.
    Very seldom does any cheating truly happen....but occasionally it does...but nobody can be convicted of, or even openly accused of cheating, if the only evidence is failure to pass a polygraph examination.    If (according to the examiner) you fail the test they still have to give you the money....unless you just say "darn I didn't pass the test" and forfeit your winnings.   
    Polygraph tests are a psychological game that begins with the initial interview before the "test" is given, and ends after your reaction to the examiners comments AFTER the test.    An actual "lie detector machine" does not exist.  With a little psychology training you can perform a "polygraph test" with 3 Gummy Bears and 10 feet of 4# monofilament.

    Go above outlet one and work the seam of main lake and outlet with crank or jerkbait.  Slow retrieve with lots of pauses.
