    Ok.....lots of info to pass along here. First, safe light will be at, or very close to 7:15. Plan to blast off at 7:15. Registration will close at 6:45, so plan accordingly. Blindhawg has graciously volunteered to be blast off boat, so at 7:15, we will mass at the mouth of Turkey Creek (almost directly across from the ramp) for blast off. Be sure that you see a silver & lime green Triton as blast off boat as well as my white & black Phoenix. If neither of these boats are present, you are not in the correct group. I will be taking up money, so look for my my Phoenix & gray tundra at the ramp. I plan to be there by 6. Be sure to bring a waiver form for both you & your partner. I will have a few on hand, but, as your ability to fish tomorrow depends on that waiver, please do not rely on me to have enough for everyone.... I only have approximately 50 on hand. Lastly, there is quite a bit of floating debris between 25e & poor valley, so drive carefully if you go that direction. Look forward to seeing everyone. Drive safely.

    This just isn't factual, Doug. Biological fact is that they will find a nest & they will spawn there. Yes, it does cause them some extra stress and there may be some hatchling and/or egg mortality, but rest assured, those fish will still spawn.

    The more organized I get, the more stuff I buy, the more I need to organize. I thought buying a bigger house would help, nope just put more stuff in it. However in my man cave closet I have punch board on all the walls. It's a large walk in closet. I have guns hanging on one side, bows hanging in the back with archery accessories. Then the other side I have fish lures. The more I can hang from the walls the less I have in the floor. But I still have stuff in the floor lol.

    Mountain Man - if you keep using words like progeny in here you're gonna hafta set up a dictionary section, dood. Geez . . . Airborne doesn't do math or science in public.

    I prefer those plastic racks you can get at Walmart. The heavier duty grey ones rated for like 300 pounds. Get component box tote bags from Bass Pro to store you're component boxes. I can't remember the brand of those racks I use, but they also have handy little hooks on the sides you can hang like life jackets from, and the shelves all have slots you can put to use as well. As for the girls though, always remember.......you will always run out of money when you're chasing women, but you will never run out of women when you're chasing money. Take care of numero uno dude.

    My advice would be to get more fishing stuff and don't worry about the girls

    Well, in 5 yrs studying wildlife/fisheries biology, I never saw or heard of a fish intentionally wasting their progeny. It's just not in their instinct. Their natural drive is to reproduce at all costs. Nor did I see any research in that time frame that was conclusive about negative effects of catching bedded bass. Don't mean to imply that you're intentionally repeating false info, just that maybe tge info you received maybe wasn't accurate.

    Very nice, Airborne. You're a good dad. Keep them kids on the water.

    I only got to watch your promo and the only thing I can add is wear your PFD . I have 2 small children and want them to see me put mine on when the big motor is on and be safe on the water . Dont get me wrong , when I was younger mine had mold growing on them and never seen the lite of day but if you can get one person to at least think about putting it on the next time they are on a boat you have done a great job .

    I would try it in the river before I took it to a mechanic. There is probably an idle adjustment somewhere on there but I sure cannot tell you where

    I still use to low profile Hoppy's black lights that fit into jacks in my boat deck even though my Son In Law did install led rub rail black lights on the boat last year. One side of the LEDs has already quit working and need to be replaced if he wants to use them. I told him it was mistake to go with that lighting but he knew best. Boat looks like a Christmas tree out on the lake. He also put the front running green and red lights lights up front and they quit working and I am still using the factory front running light. I would imagine he will be going back to what works which is what was on the boat before he wasted all that money if he plans on night fishing...........jmho

    This is great information for sure. Normally when a front is coming in bass are feeding up and when front is in bass go to closest cover and stick their noses up against it making it hard but not impossible to catch them. You will almost have to put it in their mouth but they will still take an easy slow bait very close by...............Good luck

    Yeah I like the fishing videos more than anything and people explaining what's going on at the lake. My fishing videos do better than any other. I had a fishing video with TNBassin and it done tremendously well so have my last few fishing videos. The tips,unboxings,vlogs don't do so well most of the time but they help stay active since I'm only able to be on the water 1-2 days a week

    For 5" baits I use a MH/fast baitcaster, 6.4:1 reel. Usually spool w/ braid (50#) around grass, fluoro (15#) in open water. I let conditions tell me what kind of hook to use (weighted or unweighted). I prefer unweighted (I like the Trokar swimbait hooks). Gives the bait a slower, more subtle fall. I use a spinny pole w/ high speed reel for the smaller baits. Usually spool fluoro (10 or 12#) but have used 30# braid in some applications/conditions (dirty water, thick brush). Easier for me to cast the lighter baits. Same deal on hooks - conditions tell me weighted vs unweighted. If I'm skipping around docks or brush I'll rig weightless or very light weight (1/16 to 1/8 oz).
