    Loose connector Bird 1198

    Sounds like a job for my favorite thing ever..... Black tape!!! Don't do that unless you want to look extra redneck like me. I would say maybe replace the cables but that may not improve things if the female receptor is the problem

    Drop shot for trout

    Like tracker said I have always heard missed dropshot bites are usually because of the knot. I will also throw out there that a trout is a nibbling bait stealing sum b

    Bladed jigs

    I have finally been doing some damage with a bladed jig fishing the milfoil in downtown Knoxville. I got one about 3 lb LM with the OG z man black and blue with craw trailer . Then I got some handmade baits that work even better! I have pictures of the fish and baits but it says I have posted too many pics to this website

    I have a silly wedding to attend, otherwise I would jump on it like a duck on a jubebug. Weather will be perfect

    Jack hammer bladed jig

    Do you throw them in open water? Steady retrieve? I have been fishing grass with them and it’s not working. Everyone seems to say throw them into vegetation and keep them away from logs

    I’ve heard it’s almost all spotted bass with some of them getting close to 6-7 lbs . Small lake that I believe is clear water most of the time

    River fishing

    I fished holston Under that bridge yesterday evening (stayed literally under it for a while because of the downpour. ) we caught some tiny smallmouth and sunfish on crankbait, hair jig, and inline spinner. it’s pretty tough sledding right there this year. I did get a sauger and a drum trolling after my buddies left right before dark. There are big fish in the area, but they are pretty smart I guess. Maybe try Fishing as deep as you can out in the middle of the deep holes, there are some humps and sharp ledges here and there. Do you have a depth finder on the kayak? Also just remembered if you were fishing the holston in the morning, I’m guessing the water was raging so that makes it a lot tougher. Spinnerbaits jerkbaits and loud topwater seems better during generation

    Berkley max scent

    Hahah! It is foul

    I’ve never been there but they typically gather under the grass mats midday where I fish down south. Frog or heavy sinker seems to be the trick

    Gulp will get me bites in the dead of winter when nothing else seems to. I miss winter already......

    Ned rig

    I havent tried the elaztech material but I have been known to rip a worm to shreds and throw it into orbit from frustration after 15-20 attempts to get them to hang straight! A lot of the videos I have seen of people fishing the ned, the worm isn’t straight when they show the bait but they just fish it anyway. I just use small portions of a variety of floating soft plastics on cheaper jigheads. Even still I try to rig them weedless, hard to fish bottom with exposed hooks in the crazy current near me.

    My Merc 4 stroke is a pain but it's mostly bevsuse there aren't any parts available. It's a 2008 50 hp 4 stroke and apparently they didn't make many. Powerhead is fine but people have a hard time doing any work on it. Mechanics mostly say they have never seen them except in salt water
