That is a Monster bag for sure.  Had to be an A-Rig.  Still hard to find that kind of a bite, which is plenty hard.  I went out for about 3 hrs. here at the Lodge and only had two keeps both K's.  Both fish on a Tim Hughes custom painted megabass.

Congrats to the winners. and really 2nd. and 3rd. with close to 14 is a fine day of fishing.

Just got word in on some others locals just out flinging that did well yesterday.  I guess from Shell Knob to Campbell Pt. was excellent on  a jerk bait and A-rig  One of the locals out of Joplin and yes that would be local as he fishes several times a week here had a nice 18 pound bag, with fish being up on the transitions.  Said he had a great 6 lb. kicker on the jerker.  More on the jerk bait than the rig, but it was also worth throwing.  Would fish the transition with  either the jerker or the rig and then redue with the other bait.  

On another note they don't want the jerk bait dead slow, you can hop it.  bump, bump, bump let it sit for a second or two and then rewash.

Also a good buddy out of Indian Point caught them using his Livescope.   25 keepers that he thought the best 5 would go a solid 15 lbs.  Said they were deep 45' to 60' all on a grub.  Said on one location, the entire bottom just lifted.  Said he saw everyone he caught eat it and lots that didn't.  He was using a 3/8th. head on a Keitech 3.2 and just fishing it vertical.  Thought he was going to A-rig them but got on the deep bite and could not leave it.  Said he weighed lots of 2.75 pound K's.

Both guys said very few short fish, most were solid keeps.

Good Luck

Back in the day the Fann Brothers one with a jerk bait and the other with a C-tail grub were the team to beat.  Now days, the A-rig has kind of taken that bite over.  Those boys are still good, but the and I say this with a grain of salt the "modern A-rig chunkers" have taken center stage, and really as far as tournament fishing, its not close.
