    I actually bought a pair of those snippers a few years ago after you recommended them.  They work great and I'm pretty sure that the fish we hooked deep will be OK but I'd still rather just avoid the deep hooking altogether if I can.  
    And you're right - those babies will cut about anything with minimal effort.

    We did the slack line dead sticking deal a bit early on in the trip but ended up with a couple deep hooked fish so we gave it up.  It just kills me to hurt those beautiful fish and it just ain't worth it.  As for Ned in general it was probably the fewest fish we've ever caught on the little dude.  Lots of trips by the second day its about all we fish from then on but not this year for some reason.  
    We caught probably 80 - 90 percent of our fish just slow reeling the little Keitech on one of Bo's 1/8 oz. crappie heads.  Although we tried the deeper fish on the flat gravel and the extended points quite a bit we just never figured it out.  We ended up mostly "pond fishing" the swimmer either paralleling or just casting to the bank in pretty shallow water in the pockets and coves and they would just load up on it.  No discernible strike at all it would just get heavy.  
    On the steeper banks we would let it fall and quite often a smallie would just rip the rod out of our hands before it got more than six or seven foot deep.  But only on the drop.
    The fish that we did have hit it hard while slow reeling either missed or came off almost every time and I'll be danged if I know why.  A bunch of times we'd have what felt like a decent fish on for eight to ten seconds and then - poof - they were gone.
    We didn't really see very many beds but what was really weird is I think we only caught three Spots the entire week and they were all little ones.  Had maybe a dozen largemouth and a half dozen really nice Googlers but everything and I mean everything else was smallmouth.
    I can't remember a spring trip that we didn't catch a bunch of the big football Kentuckies but I guess I can't say that anymore.
    Overall I'd say we averaged twenty or so fish a day with four to six keepers.  The first few days we had several nice three to three and a half pounders but later in the week the keepers became more marginal and not as fat.  Of course we're fat, old and lazy and seldom get out there before one or two o'clock so if they were biting in the morning the only way we'd know is if we read about it.
    We didn't do as good as we had hoped and anticipated for this time of the year especially with the rising water and the color being so good but what with the up and down and in and out weather conditions I guess maybe it wasn't to be unexpected.  
    And, yes, for that I blame myself!🤦‍♂️

    Actually I did have but they declined to renew the deal a couple of years ago.  Said they just didn't have the resources and manpower to keep up and they were gonna just stick with the "natural" occurring stuff from here on out. 
    Currently have a deal in the works with the History channel though.  It's a documentary called "The Vernon Chronicles - Natures Not so Natural Natural Disasters."
    If it all works out it could amount to a pretty penny for ol' Vern if you know what I mean.😉
    Might even be able to work out some guest shots and interviews for a few of you guys if you're interested!
    That is if you don't end up on the cutting room floor..........📽️✂️

    Thanks.  That's kind of what I figured but was curious nonetheless.  If it was ten years ago when I was still gainfully employed I'm sure I would have been among the first to have one but now being on the "fixed income" and all........👨‍🦳
    Now I just have to be happy living vicariously through all you one percenters!

    For the fishing I was doing during our trip the livescope really isn't a lot of help.  If fish are right on the bottom you really can't see them unless they are moving around.  With that said there were a couple times I saw suspended fish and picked up a jerkbait and caught some.
    There was another time I was able to keep track of a big ball of shad pretty shallow moving around and caught 4 walleye and a couple bass by throwing a jerkbait in and around the shad ball.
    There were other times I just shut the livescope off as it wasn't doing any good to have it on.

    You think YOU guys are pizzed - if Kathy doesn't kill me before we even leave she'll drown me soon after we get there.
    She is NOT happy and of course also thinks that it's MY fault!
    I gotta come clean here.  I ain't doing ANYTHING!  It just follows me around like Joe Btfsplk (if you're under 65 google it)!
    Heck, I'll even try the nose wiggling deal just in case........👃

    This could be your tag line. God Bless You Dave. You don't fish nearly enough and you shouldn't be able to whack them as well as you do given the long layoffs.

    But I was! Glad we left the boat at home! Was a little sad we didn't have it for the window of decent albeit windy weather Saturday afternoon, but yesterday made me real glad. I was a drowned rat just getting the truck loaded from checking out of our room. So I'll take all of Vernon's blame!
