  1. Cold muddy water

    With rising, cold, dirty water, there are no answers. Best bet is to fish where the fish were holding before the rising water. They usually won't move up until the water level stabilizes. That usually means a jig or worm, deep & painfully slow. Or you can go extreme & throw the biggest loudest crankbait you have & try to get some shock bites. Sometimes it works. Something like a manns loudmouth or 3/4 oz rattletrap. Big colorado blade spinnerbait. Keep moving around. Find the warmest water you can.
  2. Bobcat Bumpkin Lures

    James makes an excellent jig. I have used them alot. I highly recommend him. 👍😁
  3. Lowrance Elite 12 ti

    I was surprised to see that KVD switched to humminbird this year. One would think if lowrance had something better coming out, he would already have it, doing shake down & development work with it. Lowrance really dropped the ball on this stuff, they have lost alot of money.
  4. Float and fly

    Ive tried the slip flote thing & i couldn't get the fly to pull line thru the flote. Do you use a heavier head jig?
  5. Bomber Fat Free Shad

    I used to throw a fat free shad (citruse?) alot. It was a good bait on norris. But i got tired of having to buy new ones, because the bodies started splitting, from the rear hook forward. The older (10yrs) ones didn't do that, but i don't have any left in that color. I quit buying them, & went back to my old favorite ( no, im not telling) & have done very well. I even tried the square bill version bomber made, & was not impressed.
  6. Metal blade vibe lures

    They do hang up alot. But you can cut down on hang ups by just removing the rear hook & upsizing the front hook.
  7. Gloves

    Ive been wearing a cheapo pair of fleece(?) gloves i got at bps a couple yrs ago. They are grey & say white river on them. They are thin, but are fairly warm. I can use a baitcaster wearing them & they have good feel. Not waterproof at all tho. As far as the latex gloves, when i was a mechanic we all wore gloves at the shop. The best ones i found were diamond grip. Really tough & good feel. The tool trucks sell them, but i don't know who else does.
  8. Swimbaits

    Reaction Innovations skinny dipper for me. Caught a ton of big smallmouth on a 5" white trash. Big bite baits makes a knock off of the dipper & i have caught a bunch of fish on it too. They also make a hollow style that works good. It is almost identical to the zoom. One thing that sticks out to me is the lack of largemouth i catch on swimbaits. Ive thrown them alot too. All different kinds & sizes. Barely caught any Lm. Except for one technique that i use at night that sometimes loads the boat on Lm or sm. But the rest of the time i get nothing as far as Lm go.
  9. Damiki Technique

    I have found i get more bites on a smoke (natural shad) colored yamamoto shad shape worm than i do a damiki. You can also take the jighead out of the equation & do a drop shot. Some days it works better.
  10. New to me!!!

    That's awesome. Congrats. 68 in a ranger? Thats like sitting on the couch watching tv. Lol. Try 75 in a 17' bullet. I heard it was a bowling ball....
  11. Jon boats

    Ive been thinking of doing the jon boat thing for awhile. Been looking for a 1672 to convert. I was thinking a 90 qt cooler would work well with a good air pump.
  12. Shaky head

    8 or 10lb line, 3/16 or 1/4 oz head. I used to throw it ALOT & have caught a metric ton of bass on it. There are times when its hard to beat. I have all but quit using it lately tho, seems like i can't get many bites on it anymore. Berkley quit making my favorite worm to throw on it, the 7" power shakey worm. Green pumpkin or blue fleck.
  13. Ned Rig

    Yea thats it. I would cut it down to about 2" & put it on a spot remover head. It was one of those last resort type things to try & get a bite. It is a pain in the azz to get it screwed on that keeper, but it won't come off for nothing when you do. Only time i have EVER caught fish on that junk too, and i had a bunch of it. Worms, senkos, grubs & flukes. Can't remember ever catching anything on it, except the " ned rigged " stuff.
  14. Ned Rig

    Well they stole my idea. I have been throwing the tail of a senko on a spot remover head for 8 yrs or longer. It is good on cold water smallmouth & spots. Strike king used to make a bait like a senko, but it was made of elaztech, real stretchy & buoyant like the z man junk. You could fish 1 worm all day.
  15. Gloves

    I have the Bps 100mph jacket & love it. Ive had mine for about 5 yrs now & the only complaint i have is the damn hood won't stay zipped onto the jacket. Other than that, its awesome. They tend to run on the large side, whitch is good for layering. It is still pretty waterproof & is absolutely windproof, even at 70 mph in winter running down the lake for 30 mins. I have never been able to do gloves, but after last winter i'm gonna have to find something.
