Two Table Rock Firsts

Fished Thursday afternoon to Saturday evening always from 5:30AM til around 9AM then back out from 7-9PM. Fish for me were mostly on the pea gravel main lake points in 20ish feet of water. Best thing going for me was 1/4 or 3/16oz spot remover jighead with a 5" YUM Dinger in ozark smoke or green pumpkin worked slow dragging and hopping it back. Seemed like the fish stayed in the deeper water (15-20ish) in the mornings and in the evenings moved up and were more in the tree line (8-12 feet). In the evenings caught several fish right in the brush/trees and were taking it on the drop or as soon as it hit bottom. Had a few on the big 10" worms in red shad and also electric purple but had more bites on the Dingers and fish quality was the same on each so stuck with the Dinger more often. Topwater was pretty weak for the most part with only a few fish when they came up to feed for a very short time. The one afternoon I did go out around 4PM on Thurs I only fished for about an hour or so and did hook up on a few with a DD22 and a few swimming a grub to suspended fish on Pt. 2 in 35ft of water and they were suspended right at 20-25ft. Looks like drop shotting would be the ticket in the afternoons but I just dont have the electronics to do it right.

As far my 2 firsts in my life:

1- Caught a double on a spit'n image for the first time ever. Pics are from my phone as I didnt have my camera naturally.

2- I also caught someones entire rod and reel combo. Was dragging the Dinger and thought I had a large limb on my line by the way it felt coming up threw the water but reeled it up and had it on there. It is an ambassadeur one 5000 paired with airrus co matrix 457 6'2" M. Looks like it had only been in the water for a short time maybe a week or less. If its yours let me know and I will send it back to you if you just pay the shipping cost.
