  1. Late Weekend Report. Table Rock 1, me 0.

    Yep, a little while back I caught a bunch of Ky and SM in 12 fow vertical fishing with nightcrawlers but the plastics would not work. I have had trouble catching with the plastics as deep as 25-30 fow so I switch to the live bait if I had it and then it works.
  2. Electronic help

    Even with power from the starting battery you can get the interference - I did. Thus the choke. as indicated above.
  3. Electronic help

    You can call MinnKota and they will send you a choke (donut) free to put on your trolling motor which will help. You are correct regarding the need to turn off the console unit. The new Humminbirds have a standby switch on the Power drop down button which eliminates the need to totally turn it off. Hitting the Power button again brings the unit on immediately.
  4. Electronic help

    can you describe the issue - i.e. interference from the console unit or when the trolling motor is running - what troller do you have?
  5. Where to fish from shore?

    Yea, search for Quillback's shore reports - at the time I recall thinking he is doing better from the shore than I often do in a boat.
  6. Lower end 9/23/17

    Fished a couple hours this morning - WT 74, clarity about 5 ft up in North Indian. I'm still fishing the long flat gravel runouts using drop shot worm. Found fish in about 20 - 25 ft sometimes on the bottom, sometimes suspended over 30 -40 ft, sometimes under bait balls. On one occasion the screen went totally dark for the bait fish. Caught 10+ fish mostly Ky, a couple SM, and one Meanmouth, plus some perch that seemed to move in after catching a KY or 2. Most of the Ky were just legal (or close) and the SM all short. Tried swim bait on the flats but no luck with that. Nice morning until about 9:30 when it got hot. Very few boats out. Saw a loose buoy in the middle of the White in about 150 ft up towards Pt. 5 - this one appeared to be floating towards shore. I see this from time to time and if I think they are likely to have found a new permanent home, I mark them on the locator so I don't hit them at night. There were a couple that stayed out in the middle of North Indian for months earlier this year, probably moved by the higher water level.
  7. Table Rock Buoy Removal and Massive Boat Wakes

    My neighbor recently talked to the duty ranger who said that the removal of buoys are off the table but the solar thing is still in play. They are still getting negative feedback on the solar.
  8. bass are on the move

    Bo, thanks for the info. I had been doing well on the drop shot until about a week ago but have been completely lost in the last few days. Hopefully I can do better with this info. I was out in the back of North Indian for an hour or so this morning at first light and noted lots of bait fish on the locator but only picked a couple of short KYs. The bait fish were mostly deep on the bottom in about 30 fow but no visible sign of bass or the like with them. Bobby
  9. Phone service

    Yes Internet is a problem depending on were you live - Suddenlink is great (highspeed, when it works and if you can get it where you are), Century Link dsl is slow, or hughnet which is expensive if you are a big user.
  10. Phone service

    My neighbors and I have tried them all - if you want service everywhere on the lake get Verizon.
  11. Water Patrol Rescue

    All we need now are some topless bars and we can really be LOZ south.
  12. How Accurate Guys?

    thanks bo
  13. How Accurate Guys?

    when you guys say spoon, do you mean slab spoon dropshoting or a flutter spoon? or either/both?
  14. Water Patrol Rescue

    Wow - How do you sink a Pontoon Boat - one of the pontoon must have been taking on water or ripped from the deck
  15. Fishfinder/GPS advice Side imaging?

    That's why I tied the two units together. When I see something of interest on the rear I "mark" it and the location shows up instantly on the front. The same with the front unit marking showing up on the console.
