So was anybody else as lost fishing this weekend as I was? Holy cow did I suck it up! I caught a 3.15 kentucky on a whopper plopper about 20 minutes in on Saturday and thought it was going to be a decent day. I broke off one good later in the day and that was it! Sunday I caught a few small keepers and a couple shorts and then called it quits when the heavy rain set in during the early afternoon. The guys in our group that did best fished brush piles. The big one I broke off came off a random brush pile I came across on the graph while fishing around a dock. I guess I need to suck it up and go mark a bunch of brush piles for in the future since it seems like it's more of a summer Big Bass Bash than a fall version anymore with our weather patterns.

Maybe I’m crazy but I figured top fish would break 7#. Either way, I’m very happy for Oliver on the win. Y’all should check out his big bass dreams YouTube channel, such an enthusiastic guy

I saw that name yesterday and thought it sounded familiar. As soon as I realized who it was, I figured that his fish was caught on a giant swim bait and it was. Could you imagine throwing a 6oz bait all weekend?! That would wear a guy out!

Where was the winning fish weighed in at, anybody know?

All four big money fish were weighed at Alhonna. I think two were caught up the Gravois somewhere, one around Shawnee Bend and the winner didn't even really know the lake and said just around the bend from the weigh in site (Alhonna).

Most of the big fish were weighed at Alhonna...time to start moving fish from the Gravois to other parts of the lake!

I have baits to about 4oz and, honestly, with proper gear, it's no different than tossing a 1/2oz jig and pig on a MH all day. If you're balanced in your approach and let the tackle work for you, it's all fun. Hell, I'd recommend a couple glide baits for the rivers, ISlide 185, Gan Craft 178 or Deps SS175. They'll pull big fish while being small enough to get the 2lb fish.
