  1. I concur on the G-Loomis, but for me I prefer the E6X 852S JWR(Jig and Worm Spinning). The 7'1'' in Med-Fast is INCREDIBLE. The first 6"-9" of the tip is soft and the rest has the backbone of a Med-Heavy. I predominately throw 1/8th Ball Head on 2.8" Keitechs, but I have thrown up to the 5" and see negligible difference in sensitivity/cast-ability and man do they cast true. On the lighter jig head I almost always use 8lb Berkley Sensation. For me it has performed very well and has been my go to line down there for 15yrs+. Incredibly sensitive tip and a good price for a G-Loomis. I think they a
  2. Excellent. I can promise you that when he reaches my age he will appreciate the fact that you started him at that age on this impoundment. My dad and I talk about it often, how grateful I am that he started me down this path. Now we have reached the point in the last 10 years that he can just sit back, relax and let me run the trolling motor, guiding the trips. Anymore these days the student has become the teacher and the smile on his face when we go out is all I need. You are doing right by your son and I can guarantee he appreciates it.
  3. Little late to post this, but my dad and I just wrapped up our 35th annual father/son trip. As always it was a blast. The lake is fishing incredible at the moment and they can be caught on darn near anything, on any bank or off a bit, anywhere on the lake, day and night. Our fishing was 50/50 up the James just past Thompson down through Big/Little Aunts and further up the White into Baxter. The wind on some days was a bit gale force, but a little patience and persistence can be rewarding. Most of our fish were on Keitechs, Ned Rigs and Flukes. At night we were tossing Spinnerbaits and salt cra
  4. Looks like a smallie to me as well. Slight dip in the back from the spiny to the soft dorsal fin, not your typical humped back I would expect to see.
  5. Thanks all. Yeah, we will always do night fishing this time of the year because you never truly know what stage of the spawn you may wind up with on any given night. We have night fished in early April in past years witnessing first hand the first wave of spawners moving up. Those nights get magical, quick. I’m talking 9 keepers in 10 casts kind of ordeal. Plus, we just love the peacefulness of it all. It is always on our agenda. There was a significant uptick though later in the week of quality bass being caught, especially at night. Points seemed to work best for us. One item of note-for tho
  6. Much apologies for the delay in this report as getting back to the grind at work has me consumed. Of my 34 years coming down to Table Rock Lake only one word comes to mind: WOW. It has been a very long time since I have seen the lake fish like this. Here is a quick snapshot of our trip by the numbers, per day: Sat May 11- On water by 630pm, off the water by 10pm. 15 caught, 3 keepers. Sun May 12-On water by 930am, off water by 430pm, back on the water by 630pm, off the water by 12am. 50+ fish caught, 13 keepers. Mon May 13-On the water by 10 am, off water by 430pm, back on the w

  8. Eh, I am good with this forum. Any other sources are used only in conjunction with the real-time applications I have learned over the years from all of these guys. What you wont find in most reporting or other forums is family and community. I weigh that just as heavily as the bass these guys have assisted me in catching. We may get each other worked up from time to time, but the end game has always been a sense of enjoyment in fishing one of the most beautiful lakes the lord has been able to bless us with. Thank you to all, especially the guides who take time out of their busy schedules, for
  9. Clean and healthy looking fish. Good job.
  10. This is information you just simply can not find anywhere else. Thank you for making us all better anglers so that we can enjoy our time on the water to a greater extent. Cheers to you.
  11. I am not sure how it would work on boats, but I use rubbing alcohol on real tough stains in my car(cloth seats). I have a 6 year old daughter who is notorious for sneaking in a few permanent markers with her regular markers and it takes everything out with ease. We recently traded in my wife's Cobalt that had spilled coffee all of the floor mats(had probably been there for a few years), there were melted crayons, permanent marker "art" all over the back seat and I had it spotless within about 30 minutes. Perfect de-grease solution, but if trying on your boat you may want to either dilute it or
  12. Merc- Right on point. It's amazing how many fish are passed up because an area is not properly broken down. I'm sure its harder to do that in a tourney, but if pleasure fishing that's the part that is most fun. Great points.
  13. Excellent. I have a copy of those from the COE as well. A majority of the map I took photos of and have them in the phone for future reference. The maps are copyright 1977 and rather frail so I am doing my best to preserve them. I am highly considering going to a professional printer and having some waterproof copies made when I have the extra money available. They show all of the timber where it use to be before everything was cut down.
