  1. My neighbor and his son where throwing Wild Eye shads on Beaver for Stripers 2 years ago, they were using small 3-4" ones. They caught something like 30 stripers, one went 35lbs. This was over the course of several weeks in May, not on one trip. Never have thrown them myself for stripers, maybe this year, but if they're on top it's just too much fun to get those blowups.
  2. Got out early, flat calm, threw a top water and had some decent fishing for the first couple of hours walking the dog. Caught a couple dozen on the top water with a few keepers mixed in. The fish were on main channel banks and in the coves, the best bite was over 5 - 10 FOW. Wind kicked up about 10 AM and the top water bite pretty much stopped when that happened. Could not get much going on the Keitech or the shaky head. For the most part the fish looked to be gone from the main lake points that they were on just a couple of days ago. Threw a crank on some windy banks, no touches on it. Wind really started blowing, bite was slow, so I left at 1230. First two casts caught these two fish: Only Keitech keeper:

  4. I have thrown a couple of big glide baits, had a couple of bass swim up and take a look, but never eat them.
  5. Fishing was a little different today, caught 30 spots, not one largemouth or smallmouth. Most came on a 3.3 Keitech on a 1/4 oz head, caught a couple on the swing jig/Menace and one on top water. Fish were on main lake points and windy banks, usually in 5 -20 FOW. Caught 3 walleye, one was a keeper, a couple of crappie and even a rainbow trout, but no dang largemouth or smallmouth. WT 56, but I don't remember looking at it after 10 AM or so, I bet it warmed up later in the day.
  6. Yeah, in just a few weeks the wake boats will emerge.
  7. @Johnsfolly You need to persuade your management that you could do your job working out of a 'home office' located on Table Rock.

    Wish I had some to offer, I just don't fish that lake very often. Last year KVD whacked them on a square bill during a BASS tourney. Anyway, good luck and I'll be curious to hear how good/bad the fishing is.
  9. Saw this one on Beaver a couple of years ago, copied from a thread on the Beaver lake forum:
  10. I love fishing a square bill when they are biting it.
  11. Yep, that's why I use the 1/0 on the smaller swimmers.
  12. It was a nice eye - lucky for him or more likely her, I just had some fried fish a week or so ago so she got to live to fight another day.
