  1. They are the white ones... I would be curious if anyone had issues with breaking.
  2. I am looking to add a couple of new crank bait rods to the quiver. I am looking for a meadium or MH moderate action rod in the 7'0 range... BPS has the Johnny Morris Carbonlite 2.0 on sale right now for $99.00. ($85 if I trade in a rod)... Do any of you have any experience with these rods? Thoughts? Any other suggestions for a cranking rod in the $80-$120 range?

    Lake house rental

    Tons of options on AirBnB- I was looking at them today. I have used VRBO and AirBnB many times- read the reviews and do a little homework and you are almost certain to have a great experience at a good value.

    Keitech fat 3.8?

    +1 on the 2.8. Sexy shad and blue red pearl... I’m sure some would disagree but I don’t over think the color on those- if it looks shadlike they seem to bite it.

    Feb 8-9th Longs Creek

    Got out of town for the weekend and came to fish the lower end of the lake for the first time ever.... It it was cold. Really cold. It was also windy... which made it feel colder.... but when you have two days to fish you take it come hell or high water. fishing was brutal for us. Couldn’t find any sort of pattern to run or active feeding fish. Add to that running all new water and I just couldn’t put the pieces off be puzzle together. On Friday we ran up the creek pretty far- caught a smallie and spot on a swim bait and lost a really nice smallie at the boat on a jig. Found some fish feeding in the mouth of a little cove and caught a white bass on an A-Rig. Saturday we ran the other way and again found some feeding fish suspended in 80-120 feet of water- but in a point where the wind was blowing hard. I couldn’t really fish it effectively but we did catch one very far white. In the afternoon we ran back up the creek- caught another small spot on a jig. We marked a lot of fish suspended in the channel back there. Couldn’t get anything to buy until I got out the ice jig. Caught 2 crappie there- suspended over 30 feet of water. We marked a ton of scattered fish up the river and after catching those crappie I am pretty sure they were all crappie . All in all a tough cold couple days... but better than a lot of other things I coulda been doing!

    Trout opener article in the St Louis Post

    I wouldn’t touch the “trout opener” with a 10 foot pole these days.... but when I was I kid I can remember we lived in a small town south of St. Louis. Dad took me to Maramec Springs for opening day... catching a trout seemed like a big deal to me- I had never caught one before.... We got up at the crack of dawn to get there before daylight. It was cold....crowded... and miserable. I made the trip more enjoyable for him by falling in. I remember him taking me to some bathroom to try to dry off. Poor dad- ruined is day I’m sure. But now it is just another one of my good memories of fishing with my Dad.

    Bass Pro Tour

    I wish they would mix it up- why should every event have the same format? I think mixing it up over the course of a season would be fun. Some events like this- some 5 fish limit events. Heck- make one a biggest bass event. Kinda like NASCAR having big tracks, short tracks, and road courses...
  10. Fatty! Great fish! Thanks for the report!

    Shell Knob

    We were at Big M as well. Jerk bait and a few on spoons. Got off the water when it started to rain at about 11. Nothing to write home about- finished with 8 or 9. All smallish k’s. We couldn’t really find any suspended fish or large balls of shad. A few suspended fish off of Viney but they were very scattered. Really wanted to crank some fish and thought it was set up for it but we got no love on the Rk.

    Quill: During the flood a last year I launched from IN FRONT of that sign... which made it even funnier...
  13. Not much to report unfortunately. I am trying to figure out how to catch fish deep so I stayed comitted to trying it with zero to show for it. On the water at 7. Off at 11. WT 52-54. Hit the main point at Viney and marked fish- also marked a mother load of shad halfway back in Viney. Stuck with spoons, a jig, and a swimmer with no luck. Figuring out how to stay on the fish we were marking was a real battle. BUT it was my first time out with the new Lowrance Hook2 splitshot and I couldn’t be happier with it. In lieu of grip and grins- please see attached sonar images. No fish but fun day trying to learn something new and using the new electronics. If I remember correctly- I think this is the hump right by the boat ramp at BigM-. Halfway back in Viney- middle of the channel Main point of Viney- fish suspended over 52 ft
  14. Around some of them yes- on the main lake but not back in the creek. And not all of them. The Bass seemed to be scattered.
