    Coming to a water near you

    Isn't there a convoy with a couple of thousand Honduran bow fishermen headed our way?
  3. When I lived in Washington state I used to trailer my boat to saltwater launches and I had my share of trailer light issues. You have my sympathy.

    Jig fest boat thread

    Need to get a line on boats and open seats, several of us are boatless and are greatly appreciative of seat offers. However, should there not be enough seats, we can rent boat(s) from Miles - it's $100/day. We need to get this figured out before arriving in case we need to notify Miles to get a boat ready. Here's the boat people I have so far: Mreed (possibly one open seat) Zigjigman Terrierman (possibly one open seat) Little Red Ham? Eric? Here's the list for boatless bank beaters: Myself JestersHK and possible 2 friends Daryk Campbell SR John's Folly Billethead I think Wounded one could be fishing with Eric? If I missed anyone, please reply.

    Jigfest 2018!

    I think I included him in the calculation. I figure by the time it rolls around the number will change by one or two either way. Should be in the $115 to $125 range per person. But be prepared to go as high as $150, just depends on if everyone shows.

    Jigfest 2018!

    OK, looks like the weekend of December 8th is the one that works best. Will plan on renting a lodge or two starting Thursday night the 6th through Saturday night the 8th. So who is coming and who needs lodging? Need to get that figured out fairly quickly so we can make reservations at Riley's.

    Ranger RT 178 tackle storage

    I would give Ranger a call. That being said, I bet 3700 sized containers will fit, assuming that's what kind of storage box you prefer. They measure around 14"X 9" X 2" deep.

    Jigfest 2018!

    Well I have 16 down for lodging now - if that is the case that works out to 112.50 each, but we can round it up to $113. If it's 15 it will be $120, so bring some extra cash in case someone cancels. Remember Riley's only takes cash or checks. I have no problem being the treasurer, I'll have a big envelope we will put the money in and hand it to Miles, come see me when we're there and fork over the dough. I am claiming dibs on the first bedroom to the right on the ground floor of Cedar Gables, I am bringing my pooch and it's a convenient place to put him.

    new to the area

    There are walleye in the lake for sure and the guys that target them seem to do well. I trailer my boat, but if I was going to get a slip and target walleye and striper, I'd try and get one at Lost Bridge Marina. There's walleye year round on the north end of the lake, and stripers are there year round also, but there are peaks and valleys as far as numbers. If you live in Rogers or Bella Vista it's going to be a 30-45 minute drive to LB Marina. I'm partial to that end of the lake, not as crowded, and certainly not as developed. It does get busy in the summer. If you live in Rogers, Prairie Creek marina is close by - it's a big marina and very busy during the summer, but it's centrally located and gives you access to the river arms or north towards Clifty and that area. Stripers get caught right out in front of the marina in the winter. Probably should also check to see what marinas sell gas in the winter if you plan of fishing during the winter.

    Big M area 11/7

    Launched at dawn, brisk wind out of the north was blowing. Caught a keeper largemouth on a jerkbait on about cast # 10, got a little smallie a couple of casts later and then spent the next 2 hours not getting a bite. Fished down a steep chunk rock bank, caught a keeper smallie on a wobblehead and then caught 2 14" spotted bass on the next 2 casts. 3 casts, 3 fish after 2 hours of no bites, all on the wobblehead with a Menace Grub. About 5 casts later and a little further down the bank I caught a 14" largemouth. Then it got tough again. I did hook onto a pretty good fish that I never saw that got off. It was a weird bite, one of those deals where I felt just a little tick, felt like the wobblehead ticked off a rock, but just a little funny feel to it, so I gave it a kind of weak hookset and found my self with a hard puller on. Pulled hard for a couple of seconds and was off. Hate losing a good one on a tough day, it is still bugging me now. WT 60

    C’mon over to the Darkside

    Well if we're going to go beads and sliders, might as well screw one of these down on the front deck.

    From the album: Jeff's other pics

  15. Wow Seth you did do some grocery shopping, congrats! Was out for a walk yesterday, saw a 6 point about 50 feet away, usually bucks around here will spook pretty quickly, but he just kind of slowly walked away then stopped. Then sure enough saw a doe back in the brush, they both moved a little further back in the brush where I could not see them, but then heard some 'wheezing' going on. It is that time of year for them.

    Stripers are on top

    Put the boat in the water at Indian creek about 7 AM, I could see top water striper activity right out in front of the ramp. My plan today was to fish for black bass, but seeing those stripers made me change my plans. My one regret is not getting there 45 minutes earlier before it got light. Anyway got after them, throwing, targeting the ones I would see breaking water. Did a lot of chasing, they are spooky, the water is clear, and the shad they are chasing are small. A lot of times they would not go after my topwater (Evergreen Shower Blow 135), but once in a while one would blow up on it. And I mean explode, that's most of the fun, just seeing those big pops. I boated one that was in the 10-12 lb. range, a couple of 3 lbers and a couple of spotted bass. Missed several, had one knock the lure about 3 feet in the air, came after it again once it hit the water, missed it, then after I walked the bait about 10 feet it blew up on it again and missed. Had another one pop it twice and miss both times. Had a couple of brief hook ups also. It kept me pretty entertained for about 2 hours then it shut down. There was another guy out there who looked to be doing the same thing I was doing and I saw him boat 2 stripers. Went back into Indian once the top water bite died to try for some bass - had two bites on a swing head with a Menace Grub and that was it. I quit about 11 AM. WT right at 60 degrees.

    That is a nice fish - for some reason the pic didn't show the first time I saw Dan's post above.

    Cool - kinda makes me wish I had gone out today. Were they on top?

    HAHA, yeah usually I don't catch enough to make it a problem to remember the score. Of course I am getting older and short term memory starts to degrade, but then if I got one I'd probably forget where it is.

    communicating with the mdc

    That's a bit of a pet peeve of mine with AGFC - They write up those reports but don't let anyone know how to access them or better yet, provide links to them on their website. You have to know who to contact and what report you are looking for to get a copy. It's in their best interest to make this stuff easily available to the public so that we know that they are doing good work out there, one example is AGFC stocking walleye in Table Rock, but for the most part it appears that many anglers that fish Table Rock were unaware that is was happening. I have exchanged emails with the AGFC public info person about this but nothing has happened.

    Good luck Dan! I am probably won't be out chasing them again until after the forecasted nasty weather blows out which looks not to be until next week. I just hope it doesn't end the top water bite.
