A Couple Of Custom Painted Perfect 10 Rogues

Great looking paint jobs... Those drum seem to like baits that are colored the same as them. I catch a ton of drum up on the Mississippi throwing a Purple back, Iridescent blue sided, pearl bellied Storm Lightnin' Shad. It looks just like a baby drum. Maybe they are cannibals?!?!?!

Real pretty but they would not be very pretty around here after they bounced of the boulders and chunk bank in February and March. And if your not hitting the hard stuff now and then your not within a few inches if the bank and that is where it will be happening a lot if the time.

MOSMALLIES---- Have you ever fished the Mississippi up in the Clarksville area. I and a friend use to fish it a lot in the winter. Back then we could load a ice chest with sauger and walleye and big black crappie in a afternoon below the darn. I also know someone who caught a 9 lb bass in the pool just above the darn on the Mo side. It used to be shallow and full of lily pads. Mississippi River is about the best crappie fishing in Mo

Old Plug - I have fished it once in early January when the Sauger and Walleye were spawning. We were one of about 15 boats fishing a huge community hole on the the Illinois side just below the dam. We limited out in a few hours vertical jigging 3/4 oz. grubs tipped with big minnows. Watched a buddy in another boat land a 40-50 lb Flathead that day too. It's a really neat fishery that's often overlooked.

Sometimes, but not always, I get quite a few jerkbait fish suspended over timber and brushpiles. If I need to bang stuff off the bank and rocks I probably won't be using one of these. But I can usually cast well enough to avoid beating the crap out of my lures.

I think you should test those on Beaver first, QB. Prairie Creek, Ventris and Coose are real good jerk bait places. There are no stripers in any of those places. Really. I promise. There aren't. :XD:

Well I know a few pretty good casters around here and i do not think there is one of us that has not clipped a few rocks and chipped up plugs in late winter. There is other stuff but you still hit the rocks with it. You have to be within a few inches. The bass are often very very close to the bank here at that time on sunny afternoons.

MOsmallies If that spot your talking about is below the darn on the ILL side right past the last gate I have been there many times. If you will try for big catfish around there you will not be disappointed and you can expect to tangle with 50 lbs are much larger.

You do know these are deep divers? Wouldn't make much sense to throw them up on the bank when the bass are up shallow, I'd use something else, a shallower model, but that's me.

Stripers scare me.
