    Pool 8 Mississippi River tips.

    Was it common to catch pike while bass fishing or do I need to fish for pike to catch them I've never caught one
  2. I'm taking a trip up to Stoddard Wisconsin just south of Lacrosse the first week of October to bass and pike fish. I've never been up there I've watched the Bassmasters tournament videos out of Lacrosse they were more mid summer. I can't find any recent fishing reports. Does anyone have any experience fishing up there in the fall. I'm hoping the frog bites still good. Any info will be greatly appreciated
  3. Do you just punch a hole at the corner of the bag for the ring or zip tie. Sounds like a good idea.
  4. What's a good way to store spinnerbaits and buzzbaits I've been using a big square Plano spinnerbait box were they hang from notches. I don't like this because once you pull one out another comes with it then getting them back in place neatly is a pain. I've been looking at the Bass Mafia Blade box has anyone tried this box it $50 kinda pricey looks like a good idea.

    Any one fish Mark Twain Lately

    I was up there last Saturday fished from noon til dark caught 2 bass both around 2lbs. One up in Indian creek on a spinnerbait the other on a bluff end on a spinnerbait. My dad caught some small bass on shaky head worm. The lake was rough all the way til dark from boat traffic . I wish I would have got there at daybreak. It's hard to fish the points when the recreational boats will go between the boat and the bank when there's plenty of room behind me. I think there should be a common sense test to be allowed to operate a boat This was the worst trip I've had this year at Twain the lake was low and clear on the main lake up in the creeks the water was stained.

    Got a nice one today.

    I put in at the 107 bridge today at 6am ran almost to the dam. My plan for the day was to learn the lake and learn to use my electronics. The first stop was a ledge near a channel swing that I found brush on last week I didn't catch anything there last week but didn't hardly catch anything at all last week. I started throwing a spook with no bites next I picked up a deep diving crankbait it took a few cast to find the brush finally found it and slowly crawled it threw the brush then got snagged I popped it free then got bit. I thought it was a catfish or drum the way it fought finally landed it weighed it and released it was 7.31lbs the best I've caught on Mark Twain this was the only fish on a crankbait. I caught several 1.5-2lbers on a Carolina rig and 10" worm. It got rough with all the recreational boats so fishing the main lake was tough. I went west to stoutsville to get away from the ski boats there I found a bunch of crappie fishermen the Crappiemasters were doing a tournament out of Stoutesville. I caught a couple nice fish on a big white spinnerbait. I would of had maybe 4 or 5 keepers fishing was tough but that first fish made it worth it. The Minn Kota Ultrex has made fishing deep structure so much easier it's a game changer on windy lakes
  7. I did catch some nice fish up the little gravois had bass chasing baitfish near the last docks before getting into the creek we would catch a few then nothing for awhile then catch more then nothing. I think my dad caught 4 on 5 cast. Most around 2lbs had some long skinny fish. All on spinnerbaits. Caught a bunch after dark on 10" worm on the main lake area around Coffmen kinda rough water out there last night. I wonder if fireworks affect the fishing. I left all the fish.
  8. Ok thanks for the info. I do think it took more then 3 pumps
  9. I'll have to check. I was getting a low voltage warning on my hummingbird. Would that cause my fuel pump to not get the voltage to work properly? It did seemed to die after running awhile so the motor should have charged the battery. The low voltage warning would go away after it ran awhile. My boat was at the dealer for 3 weeks getting a jack plate installed when I picked it up I went straight to the lake so it was off the charger for 3 weeks but it was charged before it went to the dealer
  10. I bought a new boat in January I've got around 20-30 hours on the motor it's a 2018 150hp Mercury Opti Max. A couple weeks ago I took it out when I first started the motor it would run then die it seemed hard to get it in gear before it would die finally I got it to stay running never had anymore issues with the motor dying that day after it warmed up. I figured it was bad gas. Today I took it out to lake of the ozarks ran from Coffman up to the the little gravois while idling into the shallow water the motor started to sputter then it died it would start then die then it wouldn't even start. I pumped the bulb and it started up and ran good for about a hour then did the same thing. I'm thinking fuel pump it should be covered under warranty. Is there something I should check or am I overlooking something.

    Anyone been bass fishing lately?

    I bass fished Muddy Twain lake yesterday got to the Allen ramp around 5:30am first boat to the ramp kinda surprised started fishing pigeon roost creek I was throwing a buzzbait the guy I was fishing with was throwing a small plopper the fishing started out slow then picked up as it got light. Got 2 keepers on top water when the sun got up went to plastics tight to the banks around secondary points caught a bunch of small fish with some keepers mixed in. When the sun got high had to start fishing off the bank about 4-6'. Caught around 8-10 keepers biggest around 3lbs most were 2lbs. Fished til 2pm got back to the ramp the main lot was full and the overflow lot was getting there. This was my best day bass fishing Twain. I was expecting it to be my yearly lesson to not fish this lake I guess I'll have to try again. The mid lake area was pretty muddy water temps in the 80s
  12. I got my tires balanced just drove from Ofallon mo to Stockton lake drove really smooth seemed to help with gas mileage too. Thanks for the advise.
  13. Can I have the tires balanced at a tire shop like you would a car
  14. I bought a new ranger aluminum boat back in January the trailer has surge brakes on it. Since I've got the boat I've used it about 10 times. Recently I've noticed the trailer becoming rough to pull nothing crazy just seemed a little different so today I checked all the lugs and the air pressure that all seemed good then I jacked the trailer up and spun the wheels and I could hear a slight grinding noise I'm guessing it's the brakes. Any suggestions on how to fix this. I'm going to call the dealer in the morning. Just figured someone may have had this same issue and knew of an easy fix I'm heading to table rock on Sunday and the dealer I got the boat from is a hour from home. Thanks for any advise
  15. A small tackle shop in Ofallon just seems odd that they r 2 different brands having the same problem I'll try to send them back
