  1. Anyone else fish this area yesterday? And if so, did you do any better than us? Scheduled myself off work for the afternoon and hit the water about noon. Off water by 5. Fished piney and Wooley and points in between and just couldn't figure anything out. Found bucks in the north pockets of piney but couldn't buy a keeper bite. Couldn't get them to sniff a search bait and I struggle using dragging baits any deeper than 20 ft in the wind. Just wondering if anyone had success, because we sure didn't 🤔
  2. Not much to report. Fished state park to the dam. Water temp 44 and clarity is fine up there. Tough fishing though
  3. Thanks guys. Going up Sunday to try my luck I'll report my findings
  4. Anyone know the current water temp and clarity? Thanks! NH
  5. If the James above Springfield dam is any indication then it'll be a few days. Still muddy and rolling at flood stage as I drove over it today
  6. Thank you, Dutch, hadn't thought about golf gloves. Great idea for not losing grip or feel! NH
  7. Does anyone have any suggestions on quality gloves for cold weather fishing? Numb hands early Sunday morning made fishing tough, but losing feel while wearing gloves makes fishing impossible for me. Thanks in advance for any info! NH
  8. Heavy 7+ moderate would be my best guess. I just don't throw the a-rig enough, or any other lures that heavy, to dedicate a rod to it on a somewhat limited fishing budget. NH
  9. Should have clarified, I was actually throwing one of those 3 wire a-rigs. Threw it on a 7 MH fast but im sure that's not the ideal setup. I threw it more friday than ever have. Maybe someone with more experience will chime in on it. NH
  10. Delayed post, but not much to report. Got skunked from 11-3 or so out of mutton. Marked lots of fish and bait between 30-40ft, both suspended around 30ft and right on the bottom at the mouth of a cove off a channel swing, but couldn't get a bite out of them with a-rigs, swimbaits, underpin. Too much wind Friday to drag a jig for em. Was nice to get out on the water either way, better days ahead. Water temp was 39-40 and clarity was maybe 2-3ft max. NH
  11. Thanks for the update, waterpossum. Should work out that I'll be able to get on the water on Friday - I'll try to post what i find
  12. i had planned to get on the water this week, possibly Friday. Will the foot+ of water from the rain muddy everything up? If anyone is on or around stockton this week and has any water clarity info for me I'd greatly appreciate it! NH
  13. I'm fortunate enough to have access right from my back yard, although it's quite a hike. A deeper pocket with chunk rock and laydowns makes it worth it.
  14. Hadn't been on the water much lately as work has been hectic, but got out yesterday afternoon several miles up from Springfield lake. With barely any water flow i couldn't get bit anywhere except the deepest rocky ledge in the pocket, but they were stacked up in a 30yd section and it made for a great couple hours. Swimbait and shaky head drug along the deepest drop produced 10 fish in well under 2 hours, with this toad being the best. No scale but best guess was close to 4lb. Only fished the one area behind my house but would guess this pattern would be good anywhere there's dee
  15. Nah, if people look into my fishing report history they should know not to take too much stock in my fishing advice 😂 NH
