  1. Help me out here, over the weekend I fished long creek from 86 bridge area up. I have fished that area for 20 years with a lot 9f success in March. Generally with the conditions we had over the weekend 50 plus water temp, wind, and slight stain, I can just about count on 15lbs. I blanked up there Saturday in the AIA. Tried all depths and techniques. Crank, shakey head, jig, wobble head, and even a little a rig (please no comments..lol). I committed to the area based on the shad kill I saw in brief ride around Thursday from Moonshine to Old 86. Didn't practice in other areas of the lake and just wondering what I missed as this was the worst butt kicking I have ever recieved. Anyone else have an idea? If not I might have a boat to sell..lol
  2. Everyone seems a little worked up..lol. I have not ever thrown the a rig and decided not to throw in the aia this weekend. Got my butt handed to me and my wallet robbed. I will tell you the a-rig is not a a throw and wind bait. I didn't practice and tried to throw it in jerkbait spots and got my butt kicked. Personally, hats off to those guys who have learned it and catch em on it.
  3. Will be fun to watch. They put less pressure on the lake than any other type of tourney. Be neat to see if it is a Kentucky fest or someone targets others.
  4. Sold to a loving crappie fisherman
  5. I have a spare prop that is 100% percent perfect and needs a new home. It is a rare 25p wide ear trophy plus that has a small amount of extra cup added and blades thinned. It was blue printed and balanced and has only been run twice since. This cost me $200. It also has the blowout ring on it (can be taken off) to adapt to large torque master power units. This is a very hot prop but I bought a new boat and I over spin it. I havent run it much at all. It is great for a big boat and smaller boats with a 225. It ran 69 mph on my buddies z521 ranger with a full tourney load with a 250 pro xs at 6100. Will turn similar rpms as a 25 fury or a few less than 25 tempest. Need $350 or trade for 26 fury.

  6. Forgot about this..will take 120 for either or might trade if you have some fishing stuff I could use. BRETT
  7. On just about any lake there are people who will find them and always someone who catches them. It is what makes doing this so much fun and can piss me off like nothing else. I have fished Ozark lakes for 35 years and they give and take away. It is short term memory and the fun of the good days that bring you back. I remember two years ago I prefished 2 days on lake of the ozarks and 2 days in a tournament and caught 1 fish. This was the worst 4 days I can ever remember. Before the 120 boat event, my partner said it wouldn't take 15 a day to win. Well, it too north of 22 a day to be in the top 20. I wanted to sell everything🙄😡 and still am completely lost. Later in the month the same basic folks were on table rock. I got on a good pattern and got 2nd by .01 lbs. We were 6lbs above 3rd and only 10 limits out of 150 boats. We probably had 25 keepers. So morale is, sometimes you don't hit the matrix and sometimes you do..Just keep fishing.
  8. Physics will tell you your secure it from the motor to the trailer. Like Wrench said, be sure to secure it the boat to the trailer. Other opinions on this are based on a lack of facts or mis information. Also, always tighten and check motor to transom bolts regularly as they cause most problems.
  9. I will say the jigs 4 bass jigs are nice, quality made ones. If I don't make them myself I usually by his or Waco Johnson's. I think we all have too many colors. If I only had two colors I would be green pumpkin with a little orange and green pumpkin with a little blue. Oh and PB &J, oh and black and blue...never mind I have to have a lot of colors.
  10. The plueger and Abu spinning reels are the same reels in comparable models over the last 4 years. I have both the older xt pluegers and some revo sx, sxt, and premier spinning reels. The newer sxt revo and premier has a great drag and excellent spool for braid. I like them over about anything I have tried. You pay more for lighter reel and a better drag. Used to only have stradics, but they aren't what they used to be. Also, Champs spinning reels.work good because he uses them twice a year😀
  11. Has the recent rain muddied up the dam area?
  12. I wonder if the MDC would make available that study. Usually they won't release it. I dont know why either...dont know what it would hurt.
  13. After the rains last week, anyone know the color of the upper niagua?
  14. my wife isn't like that, but I am with you on the second part. Christmas isn't about what it should be. Ruins a good fishing weekend.
