  1. Fished Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Threw swim bait jerk bait jig and a rock crawler some. 1 fish for our efforts on a swim bait. Good weather. Now back to winter in Illinois. Tired of it.
  2. Nice fish Sprint. Can’t wait for some spring like weather and some fishing.
  3. Quill no problem. I use suffix 832 high viz green a lot. Have also used the moss green style. Some time it gets lost in the reflections. Black sharpie sounds like a good thing to try.
  4. Bo what color braid do you throw? I usually do a 3-4 foot floro leader on my Hyviz braid. Did not know if the fish would be color shy on the little ned rig.
  5. Those 2 work well for me. I use sexy shad 90% of the time. Also use a lot of 2.8’s
  6. So ready for spring and some TR fishing. Got 8” snow here in Illinois. 2 degrees tonite. -5 tomorrow nite.
  7. Sorry. Grand kids to Disney over spring break.
  8. Buck. I’m far from an expert but I would play with the sensitivity
  9. I use external spot light scan transducer. Down scan and side scan. I don’t use spot light feature.
  10. Wrench. My wife was the same. It took me months to pay for everything. I battled her every year not to spend so much. She put hours of thought and love into each persons gift. It was her favorite holiday. She passed away this year and I really miss fighting with her about how much she spent. Love em for who they are while you have them.
  11. Hi folks. Got back down. Spent couple days with the boys and today I got out fishing. Caught 5 3 keepers all on spoon 50-60ft water on the end of docks. WT 53 Best one today went around 4 pounds.
  12. Awesome. That young man’s smile says it all
  13. Beardsley Branch. Area of the lake. Everyone’s secret spot. Lol.
  14. Bgc. Bill will match his fishing day to the experience level of his clients. He or any of the other guides in the area can teach you the seasonal patterns and spots on the lake. I recommend going out with a couple different ones. They all have a little different take on the fishing. I am in the same process as you trying to learn the lake and the patterns. Table Rock is such a large body of water it’s hard to find the 20% of productive water. It takes years of time on the water to master it. And those pros still get stumped sometimes. Good luck mastering Table Rock.
  15. I loved my bass boat. But this time I purchased a Ranger 620 Deep V. Takes the waves much better. I haven't taken one over the bow in a year and a half. Still have to hang on for dear life not to get thrown out.
