  1. Glad I stayed home! I'm planning on starting back to the club this next week though.
  2. I don't think there was enough rain to make it bad.
  3. I have read that most of these guys deep crank with 5:3.1 and the ones that don't do that do it with a speed in the 6 range. That was new to me that David Fritts would use a reel that fast. I use as slow of a reel as I can get away with on those big cranks, but I also have to crank the hell out of it to keep up with it if moving down a bank at all.
  4. Yeah. I was going to go a couple of weeks ago but it was trying to make me buy 4 seats at a time and I only needed 2. Figured I'd get up there when it got a little warmer anyway.
  5. That Royals hat will always get a like from me!
  6. You could always head a little south and put in at Tucker Hollow. The ramps at Beaver, and Shadow Rock have been useable lately too. I was just there last Sunday and we put in at Beaver. We had a tough day, but had no issues with access.
  7. It has been way under water, but I haven't checked in a week. We'd been launching off of the road at the end of the campground just past the bathrooms with zero issues though.
  8. The crankbait fish I was catching were on chunky rock with gravel around. All of them in the 1st or 2nd cut of a creek.
  9. Thanks sir. I actually tossed a jerkbait for a few minutes because I love that bite too, but they were eating that crankbait about as good as they can. I hated to leave!
  10. My wife broke her leg on Sunday and it's obviously put a damper on hitting the lake in the short term. Got done at the ortho dr and decided to make a super quick run to the lake and see if we could find any that wanted a Rock Crawler or a spinnerbait. We dumped the boat in at Aunt's Creek at 11:45 and had it on the trailer by 2:15. Not ideal but had 6 really nice keepers in that time all on the baits mentioned above and they all choked the bait when they bit. Looking forward to getting back out. 62-63 degree water everywhere we dropped the trolling motor and never went further than a couple miles from Aunt's.
  11. We found a massive school of whites and caught the heck out of them on a jerkbait. Had two giant crappie mixed in with them. Before we got on that deal I had 2 nice keeper largemouth and a big kentucky. One on a spinnerbait, the other two on the jerkbait.
  12. FYI, the road is nearly impossible to launch from but we did it because we're dumb. I can't go again until next wednesday, but I'll be putting in at Beaver that day.
  13. Fished that area yesterday. Lauching off of the road is pretty tough. We did it, but had to back way down into the water because it's still a little low to do it safely. It's very flat. When we left, we backed down the curved road toward the parking lot and that was better. The dock is barely visible with maybe only the top 2-3 inches of the sign showing out of the water.
  14. I'm headed over there tomorrow. I know it's up and I honestly assume that if we go to K dock and not Beaver, that we'll be launching from the road. I'll try to remember to post an update on here on Friday.
