  1. We fished over the weekend and caught them in two locations, one was as wrench stated on wood. The other was 5'-7' deep under docks in deeper water. We couldn't get more than 2-3 off of the wood, but we did hang out on a friends dock and caught several moving a jig slow under the floats. The dock is on a point on the main lake. We caught mostly males around wood and mostly females under the deeper docks. Fishing was slow and the bite was light. When the wind picked up it was tough to feel them.
  2. I will be taking the family down for Easter and we will be targeting crappie. Are they still under the docks, or have they started moving shallower?
  3. We were down this weekend and it seemed to change every day for us. One day they wanted a shad imitation under a cork the next day wouldn't touch it but would hit a slow moving jig close to the bottom. We ended up with a double limit on Friday and Saturday, but we had to work for it. Evening bite was the best for us. Most fish were scattered and only once did we catch more than 3 in the same spot.
  4. If you like Garmin and are looking to upgrade in size, Bass Pro has the Garmin 9" on sale right now. The Echomap 93sv plus for $599. It has the capability of adding livescope. https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/garmin-echomap-plus-93sv-with-gt52-transducer-fish-finder-chartplotter-combo
  5. I only paint for me and my friends, and I only buy the blanks that I like to use. With that being said, I did buy a bulk order of these Live Target Craw blanks about a month ago as I was running low. I have been fishing them for several years now and they are my favorite bait. If anyone is interested and would want some, I would be willing to sell some of them. They run about 4'-5' deep and very straight. They are not the cheapest by any means, but they are almost $10 in the store. I would be asking $2.00/bait plus shipping and ask if you want any to by 5 or more. Me ssage me through her
  6. BlackJeep, my trip was last weekend, Oct 4-6. We didn't go above the fall creek marina docks and I was using a rented pontoon. You will not have a problem.
  7. I may not be the best to answer this question due to the amount of times I get to fish the lake, but here goes. I would assume it would change often due to water flow, time of year, time of day, and how you like to fish. For us we started at fall creek and on our first drift we went all the way to Cooper Creek boat ramp. We had a few flurries of action along the way and as the current felt like it was getting slower, we decided to motor back up. On the second drift we stopped at Lilleys, third trip we stopped just below Trout Hollow. After that we decided to run down towards that lan
  8. They work really well and are cheap. I get them off of ebay
  9. I took several friends down over the weekend for some good times and good fishing. We started Friday drifting below fall creek. We threw just about everything to start with, power worms, jigs, jerk baits and worms. It took us until about 11 to realize that drifting the crawlers was going to be the best bet for numbers. We were using a #6 circle hook and #5 round split shot on 4 lb mono and a 4lb floro leader. The circle hook helps with very few of them getting hooked deep. I have started adding a bobber stop below the weight to help prevent the weight from slipping down to the hook. Thi
  10. Thanks Phil, Love the reports, I will be down Thursday with some friends who have never been trout fishing. I am sure we will be drifting worms, should be fun.
  11. Spent the weekend fishing the lower end for bass for the first time. I have had several trips to Taney where I brought bass gear but chickened out and always stayed above the landing. This time I went down with the sole purpose to fish the lower end. We stayed in a resort around the landing and started out Friday along the main lake and in a small creek south of the landing. The moss has choked up most of the bank and creeks in this area, so it was tough for us to get anything started. We ended up with a few small bass flipping soft plastics behind the moss at lay downs. After that we he
  12. LOZ has great cell coverage, they could have gone up there
  13. Bill, Do you modify your red fins? Could you post a picture of what red fin you are using? I was down over the weekend and tried the red fin with no luck. It was my first time trying to use it, as I really like the spook. I am wanting to learn the bait, but the one I was using wasn't staying on top. I will be back down in the middle of next week with my father in law and nephew and would like to get them on that bite. How slow do you have to reel it? Did you do anything to it to make it float better? Any help will be appreciated. I was getting very frustrated with it.
