    I took the boat up to the Dam and had a good morning. I caught 3 on a sulphur dry fly early and then switched to a sulphur colored crackleback and that was the hot fly this morning. I caught a dozen nice ones on it including this fat one in the picture. I probably missed as many as I caught on the crackleback by setting the hook too early. It is hard to wait for them to turn before setting it when you see them come up and take it from behind. Then you end up pulling it right back out of their mouth. Still fun to watch them take it even if you miss them.

    I have arrived in Readstown, WI. Spent an hour fishing a stream close by this morning and drew first blood on a wild brown. Ate the hopper good! Got some Spotted Cow and now relaxing before the evening. I'll post more pics as the week goes on.

    Dog and I stopped at the Field of Dreams site on the way up yesterday, too. Pretty cool.

    Decided to see what the night time fuss was all about on my first night in town.  I have been searching for a lure that I thought would work and perhaps hadn't been fished on Taney before or not much with all the pressure these fish get.  Well I think I found it a couple weeks ago so decided to try it last night. We caught a ton of fat bows up to 19 inches on it. The highlight though was a 24 inch 7 pound brownie followed 15 mins later by another 20 inch fat brownie. To say I was pumped was an understatement!

    Tyler obviously doesn't seem to have any problems catching plenty of big smallies. Maybe other guys just need to get out there and figure em out. If he's figuring this stuff out on his own and wants to post videos, that's on him. He seems to be fishing the same stretches of water quite a bit so he's not messing up everything. I enjoy making videos of my fishing escapades myself, but they are always on highly pressured waters anyways so I don't feel like it really matters. Everything I'm catching fish on is nothing secret. I'm not one to ask for advice from another person either and would rather figure things out on my own. If somebody feeds me info or shows me something, I don't post any video of it because it's not mine to share. That seems like the fair thing to do IMO.

    I only really fish the Gasconade so that's all I can really comment on. The fishing pressure from tournaments and pleasure anglers has gotten worse every year since I started fishing in 2012. The smallmouth fishing has been better the past two years than it had been the years prior since I started fishing it. Most tournaments are dominated by smallmouth instead of the largemouth like they had been in years past. I've seen more 3.5lbs+ smallmouth brought to the scales in the past two years than I can recall in the previous 7-8 years that I've been fishing for them. 

    Is this due to higher water levels or something else? I know it takes smallmouth a lot longer than 2 years to grow to 3-4 pounds, but they sure seem to be more abundant than they used to be. The opposite seems to hold true when it comes to largemouth though. It seems more difficult to find a 3+ pound greenie now than it used to be.

    Many of you have a lot more years of service chasing bass on these bodies of water than I do so this is just based on my decade of experience. I don't do much floating on the smaller streams so I have no say on those, but I do feel like I have pretty good tabs on everything below Big Piney through all of the different bass clubs that fish it. I've only fished way up the Gasconade once and it was like a completely different body of water. No tournaments and little jet boat access made for a lot easier fishing. The biggest fish still seem to come from way down river even though it gets a lot more pressure. Could just be more places for them to hide I guess since it's quite a bit bigger water.

    Greasy B reacted to Phil Lilley in Triploid Brown Today   
    Had this brown brought in this morning - released.  26 inches 9.5 pounds.  Caught on a scud trophy area.
    The adipost was clipped.  So I sent a pic to Shane.  This is what he said -
    Last stocking of trips was 2015.  They were 2 year old fish. 
    It had to come from that year class.  So I'm guessing the heat treatment didn't take on this brown.  I don't think it's a true triploid.  The fish would be 8 years old.
    Thoughts?

    Greasy B reacted to Greg B. in Summer Crappie   
    Sorry for my absence lately.  This summer has really kicked my rear end and I've not had a lot of time to get online.  Just wanted to post a bit about my crappie experiences on Beaver for the last few months.  
     
    I long line troll jigs mostly up the white river arm.  Last summer I found some large schools and stayed with them a while, but this summer has been different.  I've located some large schools but getting them to bite has been difficult.  Most of my trips have been between the 412 bridge and War Eagle Marina.  I'm currently finding crappie suspended at different depths in 13-20 FOW.  Most fish are between 7-10 feet deep of late.  
    I'm reaching them with 1/16, 3/32, or 1/8 jigs trolled at about 1mph.  I find that they like the jigs a bit faster in the summer so I'll often vary speeds up to about 1.4 to see what kind of mood they are in.  
    My son and I have had a few good trips and several slower than average trips, but I think we are about to settle into a decent pattern and hope to move things in the right direction.  Good luck out there!

    Do what you can to get rid the world of Youtube fisherfolk & hunters. Stop watching & unsubscribe from Youtube hunting and fishing channels, never fish/hunt with those who bring a GoPro, and last but not least.... DONT LINK THEIR YOUTUBE CHANNELS! The more hits they get, the more they make!
