    Live Watson vs some other guy on TR

    I watched about 30 minutes, as you say, they were spooning docks. The other guy (I can't remember his name) got a largemouth that went 4 lbs. 5 oz. Some pretty chunky spots got caught also.

    You don't have one of those electronic fish noise maker things that brings the bait to you?
  5. That Oahe tournament will be interesting. Missouri river impoundment I believe. Wind can be brutal there at times.

    Bugle lips!

    Made it over to Big M this morning, launched at dawn. Plan was to hit a few summertime largemouth spots and go from there. Plan didn't turn out well, could hardly get a bite early, the exception being a carp that probably went about 15 lbs. that decided to eat my c-rigged craw. First carp I can remember catching on a c-rig, and he had it in it's mouth so I can only assume he meant to eat it. I was hoping it would turn out to be the biggest bass swimming in Table Rock, but I could tell after about 10 seconds that it was no bass. Thought it might be a gar or drum, a little surprised to see old bugle come to the net. Later in the morning I headed out to a place I have named "Keitech Point" and swam the Keitech. Caught some there, made a location change to another rocky point with trees and caught some more there. All spots, except for one 12" largemouth. Caught a little over 20 and when I left about 1130 AM they were still biting. Had a wake boat towing an inflatable couch with 3 kids siting on it pass by about 50 feet away and that made me decide it was time to go. As I cam into the Big M launch there was a white garbage bag floating in the water in the middle of the cove, I decided to get it out of the lake and dump it in the trash can. Went to lift the bag and it fell apart spewing bottles, cups, and other trash all over the place. Had to drop the TM and net as much as I could. As they say, no good deed goes unpunished, LOL.

    I was out there too today, and it was busy.

    Line Size Question

    I always wonder about the pound test rating on line weights. No standards bureau to test it out, so we have to trust what it says on the spool, unless you do the weight test like you did. I like Maxima, it is what I used for salmon and steelhead fishing on my spinning outfits. Still use it for cranks and top water.

    Line Size Question

    Maxima is at .229 mm, BP is .230, so BP is slightly larger in diameter, so small a difference that it shouldn't matter. We're talking .001 mm.
  11. Quillback

    Line Size Question

    Must be an error on the Maxima site. BP gives the mm here. https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/bass-pro-shops-excel-monofilament-line-jumbo-spool

    Line Size Question

    Maybe the .009 was in inches? That converts to .229 in MM. You can type into Google - "convert .009 inches to mm" and it will do the conversion for you.
  13. Quillback

    Line Size Question

    I see .229 on the TW site for 6 lb. Maxima (Ultragreen).

    I can't help, but you might want to post that question in the Bull Shoals forum. Welcome BTW.
