  1. Baxter 1/20

    I was out on Saturday and had similar results. On the water at Kimberling City at 9, off at 1. Went from KC up above baxter, and was determined to catch fish on the stickbait, but they were determined to not eat it. Sounds like I probably saw a few of you on the water based on locations. I noticed several dozen shad floating on the bluffs across from Mill Creek as well, but not as many as I'd have liked to see. I'm also not sure if I have ever seen more ducks on Table Rock than yesterday. I did get some time with a few baits I hadn't thrown before however, and believe I learned a bit. I have refused for a long time to spend $25 on a Megabass 110, but now understand why they cost twice as much as their competitors. I love my McSticks and will still throw them when I think less action is better, but I was amazed how much more action the 110 has. I also threw the 6th Sense Curve 55 (another Wiggle Wart knockoff), and the jury is still out for me. I really like their finishes, and was impressed with how little it hung up, but I'm not sure it is as good at deflecting and grinding as the Wart or RkCrawler. Probably why it didn't hang as much
  2. Shad Kill

    This appears to support Gavin's claim, but refers to Gizzard shad and not Threadfin: http://www.in-fisherman.com/biology/science-of-shad-winterkill/
  3. Kim. City 12/29/17

    Got back out for a few hours on Saturday afternoon. Same game and same places. Could not find the fish in the same creek arms I had fished last weekend. Assuming the small cold front that moved in Friday night had something to do with that. Did go to a few familar banks and cranked, and picked up my personal best smallmouth. Scale said 4.47, and she was a bit over 20". Only fish in the boat, but I'm ok with that...
  4. Still cannot access OAF from home computer

  5. Kim. City 12/29/17

    Got out for a few hours this afternoon after it warmed up. Just a few other brave souls out on the water. Was able to find fish all over the place, but didn't get many to the boat. Caught a few pretty nice fish though(see pictures). Curious to get some opinions on the brownie in the first picture. Doesn't have any meanmouth markings that I can see, but certainly has quite the jaw on it. Caught him later in the afternoon on the RkCrawler; wish I'd tried running banks earlier in the day based on other reports.

  7. Fishing journal/log APPS

    If you haven't ever played around with Microsoft OneNote, it's a pretty powerful platform. You can set up notebooks in the cloud, and sync them through your computer, phone, etc. You can also paste in pictures and all that fun stuff. I don't use it for fishing, but I take skeleton notes for work on my phone, then I can go home and fill in the details/clean it up on my laptop.
  8. perfect weather

    I tried for a bit on Sunday and Monday. Found a few fish over the tops of pole timber on the blade, but couldn't get much love on the banks.
  9. Boat Detailer

    Aaron Kyle is a friend of mine, and started PolishPro after leaving another detailing operation. He's a great young guy trying to build a client list, and does excellent work. He also lives in Kimberling city, so he's very close by. You can see a bunch of his work at his facebook page below, and I believe it speaks for itself. 417-294-4162 https://www.polishprodetailing.com/ https://www.facebook.com/PolishProDetailing/
  10. Weekend outlook? 10-27/28

    2.8" Keitech on a 1/8oz. or 3/16oz. head, or underspin could play into your light tackle as well. These small shad they are chasing has made me downsize everything recently.
  11. Tournaments galore

    It will be very interesting to see how today plays out. Big North wind and 30 degree temperature drop overnight. Looks like the teens struggled yesterday as well. I got out for about an hour yesterday. Tried to throw the blade on wind blown banks that should be holding fish without a sniff. Got tired of getting wet with the whitecaps and called it a day.
  12. Table Rock Buoy Removal and Massive Boat Wakes

    I made that drive Thursday and Saturday, and I saw MasterCraft, Regal and Malibu billboards, all of which are not his companies.
  13. Falcon rods

    I was at Sportsman's Factory Outlet in Springfield last week, and they have some Lew's Inshore Custom Speed Sticks marked down to $70(originally $130). I got one that is Medium/Fast action, and love it for throwing lighter stuff (it's rated for 1/4-3/4oz. I believe). However, I agree with the others that if you had to have one rod, it would be a MH to be able to throw heavier baits better(they didn't have MH rods of that type, or I'd have owned a few ).

    If you're buying the BuCoo, I'd be careful to get one with standard guides, and not the micro guides. Seems like they had some issues here: http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Falcon_Bucoo_Micro_Guide_Casting_Rods/descpage-FBMC.html#customer_reviews
