  1. Great boat! I had a a 2002 185 VS for 14 years. Now have a 2016 Z 519. Hope yours treats you as well as mine treated me.
  2. Monday I had a decent day catching smallmouths and spots in the clearer water of the White River, but I headed to the Dirty James about an hour before the rains came. Paid off with a nice 5-12 throwing a spinner bait around the flooded bushes and trees. Last day here today. Back up to Michigan. Hope I can arrive virus free. I always seem to head home just when the fish move up and start to bite good.
  3. Looks like you found a few in groups instead of the lonely one and done spots that I had been finding. Had a couple of those groups myself finally Had 20 keepers yesterday out of 24. First keeper was a 3 1/4 pound largemouth on an A Rig. The rest were caught on a 2.8 or 3.3 Keitech. Best fish was a 3.88 smallmouth. Had several nice spots and a couple of Meanmouths. wonder how the cloud cover will affect the bite today?
  4. We always come down from Michigan to share your beautiful lake and fish the Aunt's Creek Association Buddy Tournament.My buddy Dale and I came down last week Friday. We had just got the news that the tournaments were called off. We each drove our own boat and trailer down with planes that our teammates would come later to join us in the tournament. We also expected four others to join us. Then the Coronavirus stated getting more people infected and shutting down more stuff, everyone else decided to stay home.We figured we could socially distance ourselves on Table Rock, so we have been fishing
  5. Dutch, I thought the same thing! There was no way I could hold my new Rapala Scale with that Striper hanging on the end of it.

  7. Quite a few floaters early in the morning. The wind eventually takes care of them. Have to pay attention. Water is starting to drop, so that should help.
  8. I have been fishing the past 7 days along with my buddy. We fish by ourselves out of our own boats. Fishing has been fairly tough. Our best day for numbers has been was 18 and 14 fish, with with only a few of those being keepers. The majority of our fish have been caught swimming a grub or a Keitech. Some nice smallmouths over 3 pounds and some chunky keeper spots have been caught on days of fewer fish, but my buddy Dale has been pretty steady the last couple of days on both numbers and keepers. Clearer water towards Kimberling City, but we have caught some in the stained water in the white an
  9. I was fishing the James River/Aunt's Creek area Tuesday evening. The water was very muddy, but there were a lot of shad and loons around so I was launching my A Rig trying to entice something to bite. I started to get frustrated and questioned my sanity for fishing such muddy water. I was going to leave this spot after this cast, and suddenly my late afternoon trip turned into something special. I felt a tug and set the hook and soon found out that this was not your usual bass you catch on Table Rock, but a Striper! In forty years of fishing Table Rock, I had never heard or seen one caught. I
  10. I was going to ask if anyone knew how the James was between points 10-14. We ran to Kimberling Area today to find clearer water. Some floating trash there also.
  11. I have the Float and Fly kit that I bought at least 25 years ago. In Michigan I use it to catch crappies. I should update with the Spro version.
  12. There are so many good lakes with Giant Smallmouths. I have seen 4 and 5 pounders being kept to be eaten on one of the lakes NE of Traverse City. We had a D & R Sports tournament on there and about 200 over 4 pounds were weighed in. Here is a 6 pounder from Lake St. Clair in early May caught on a Lucky Craft Slim Pointer in Table Rock Shad color. Water was still pretty cold that spring. Hit on a 5 second pause.
  13. This was a 6 pound 4 ounce smallmouth caught in the fall on Manistee Lake, one of the drowned river mouths that connect to Lake Michigan. This is an example of what Michigan smallmouths can grow to be. If I can figure out how to do it, I have a 6 pounder from Lake St. Clair also. Marcel Veenstra also guides on Burt and Mullet Lakes in the Indian River area in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan. You don't catch as many bass here as you do on Lake Saint Clair, but you could catch a 6 or 7 pound fish on one of those lakes.
  14. Marcel Veenstra - Marcel's Guide Service- Also on Facebook Art Ferguson - Art of Fishing Guide Service This Year, late April through early May should be good. Catch and Release during this time of year. Most of the fishing for big smallmouths will be in 4 to 9 FOW. Fun times! This is the time I like to go, but the guides can put you on fish other times of the year. Most of the big FLW and Bassmaster Elite tournaments are in late August and Early September. Did you see Seth Feider last year on Lake St. Clair?
  15. I agree. I had the opportunity to fish Lake Champlain in 2014 as a co-angler in the Northern Bassmaster Open Tournament. Big Largemouths in the Northern and Southern ends of the Huge Lake, and a ton of quality smallmouths. I live in Michigan, and the possibility of catching a smallmouth over 6 pounds in any of the lakes connecting to Lake Michigan exists, as well as many of the northern inland lakes. I try to make a trip to Lake St. Clair a couple of times each spring before the spawn when huge schools of smallmouths move shallow to feast on the yellow perch that have just finished spawning. 5
