    What's Cooking?

    Skipped lunch just so I could sin this evening
  2. Yes a bait ball, yes there's some kind of fish under. But they aren't actively feeding imo. If they were on the munch there would be lines streaking all over the screen as they chased the bait but it looks like they are just following the bait in that picture. Vertical jigging white or silver spoons can be very effective for that.๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. It's pickles time again! Only have the one cucumber vine and it makes em short and fat
  4. The long wait is finally over! Starting to get some eaters now๐Ÿ‘ picked these this morning to have with the sweet corn and pickles for tonights Bull Shoals catfish and bluegill fish fry

    We did some peppers today and more cukes. Hot bananna, red and green jalapeno, and habanero.
  8. The last few trips have been pretty much the same thing. Top water baits before the sun gets up , Im on the water by 5:15. noisy bright colored ones in dirty water, natural colors and a more finesse approach in clearer water. Back of coves is where I've been finding some bass shallow in the cover. With falling water the bite back there has been getting slower,but still productive. A Bill Dance Spit n Image and a Bass Asassin 3" Shad Asassin have been the the most productive for me. Around 9am I put away the bass gear and start looking for Gill beds. With the lake dropping the fish are moving out and they arent where they were at for a long time. The ones I'm finding now are in 2-4' on gravel near deeper water and near steeper banks and there's usually 12-15 beds . Not catching very many females now, just the big bulls guarding . They are suckers for a floating Jighead with a honey worm on it. It's fairly clear water,4' visibility , where I found some yesterday and they would smash that floating jig on the surface while lightly twitching it. Up shallow in foot of water next to the bank there are hundreds of baby gills and baby yellow perch in the same school. I saw one bush had at least 50 gills in it and about a half dozen five inch yellow perch mixed in with them. I can see a lot of the lake ,acres of water where I was fishing and never saw one school of fish busting shad in the last 3 outings. What ever happened to the days where we'd catch schooling whites in the Summer? I just don't see that anymore in the Theodosia Arm.
  9. Fresh picked this morning. Just to sample. These sweethearts are amazing! I like them way better than the cocktail variety I grew last year. Had enough to feed myself and give some away and there's still hundreds more green lol.

  13. Remember these Sugar Babies from a couple weeks ago or so,,, Well,,,๐Ÿคญ Absolutely loaded with melon blooms, already got 14 baby melons baseball sized and they are getting bigger every day and will need support soon so they don't break off. There must be 90 or more smaller.There are sixteen watermelon plants in that raised bed. Four in each corner.

    Did a couple test run pickle jars this week, turned out fine๐Ÿ‘ This time I'll show the whole zucchini cake๐Ÿ˜‹
  15. Speaking of gold tomatoes, I found this beautiful plant sitting on my deck Monday. It was a gift from a neighbor. It has a few blossoms ,but it needs some flower fuel. supposed to be gold cherries! Will know in a few weeks. A lot of you are probably getting red ripe tomatoes now, and the next bunch is forming, or has been. Now is a good time to amend your soil. If you're using soil. I highly recommend flower fuel and cal mag plus. Cut back on the Nitrogen a little too. You'll notice a big difference in just a few days , with way more blossoms, and more and bigger fruits. Tomato plants need the extra ca.,, Mag,, P ,,and K, especially if they are big plants and heavy feeders like mine. Also picked up some more Ancient Earth nutrients (humic/fulvic acids) and some other organic water soluble products to use the rest of the season because I'm about out of the Espoma bag stuff and at this stage the plants need a stronger fertilizer than the Espoma ratio numbers due to their size. I increased the feeding schedule to twice a week now. Have been successful in preventing diseases and fungus so far this year, no blight , rot, rust, or yellow leaves using just a simple Neem oil soak. Been foliar feeding with just the cal mag bi weekly and watering in the just flower fuel once a week for now. Plants are as healthy as can be! It's peak bug season now, every bug and critter that likes tomatoes are out so keep an close eye on your crop! When I thanked my neighbor for the plant I noticed he had about four different kinds of bugs on his plants. Last night I offered to spray them with a Dawn soap and Neem mix and he agreed they needed some attention pronto. I've been have great results using just a Neem soak in my garden. I use 1/2 tsp per litre and pour into the pots every other week at first when the mater plants are small and not yet producing blossoms, then when they are big I'll use it 4x times a month at a ratio of 1tsp per litre . Neem oil actually has beneficial nutrients that are good for the plants and has many beneficial uses in the garden. My cardinals are still taking care of the caterpillars for me. Yesterday they had their baby Cardinal with them teaching it how to hunt worms too. Corn is doing wonderful, watered and fed it yesterday. Counted at least 40 ears now ๐Ÿ˜€ Watermelon are growing like crazy! There's already quite a few baby melons golf ball size,and the vines are growing a foot longer every day now. I've been using the same disease/pest preventative Neem soak on them, same flower fuel, cal mag and Ancient Earth,, only difference is the main food source is an all purpose water soluble 20-20-20 fertilizer that has all the micro nutes already in it. I use a lower nitrogen number on my maters.
