  1. You should have some good luck with the tubes and smallmouths in the whole area.
  2. Vivrett Creek is a good place to launch a Yak but if I was going to launch there I would go a little farther out into Suggs Creek and launch at Seven Points. Upon launching begin fishing down that right bank towards the mouth of Suggs as that bank wall is fairly deep and holds some nice bigger Spots. After you have fished that bank you need to move out the Cable Island and stay out in 15 foot water and fish towards the Island. You should feel some rock piles in about 10 foot water and pick up some nice smallmouths off the piles. I fish them with a Green Pumpkin 2.5 inch Tube with tail tips dipped in either Red or blue. That whole area is good for Tube fishing or Stick bait fishing.
  3. It would be easier to help you if I knew where your launching from. I have a lot of places I can recommend for Yak fishing once I know where you have been fishing. Another thing about Priest is it's not the best lake to fish when it's muddy or stained really a lot. Cold water does make them somewhat sluggish but they will still bite. Especially the smallmouths and the Spotted Bass.
  4. You mean a bass was stupid enough to actually bite that ugly thing? You have got to have some really stupid Bass in the lakes your fishing in...….LOL...……...
  5. Ok, this is a one time offer and runs through November 30th. I will pay the shipping on any bait orders of 200 baits or more through November 30th 2019. Here is an opportunity for all the new comers that have never used my baits to get to try them out and save some money and for my old customers that have been thinking about placing another order to also save some money. For more information or questions send me a PM here on the site!! Softy aka Softbaitmaker aka Doug
  6. I don't clean my rods but as one member mentioned using cotton ball to check the guides is a smart move. I don't use a cotton ball but do use a Q-tip and run it around inside all the guides to make sure there is no issues with cracked or nicks in the porcelain!!!!

    New Boat

    Congrads on the new ride Justin. They do build a great boat. Now all you need is to put some of my baits in it and you will have a complete fish catching package...……..
  8. Well I just shipped my first order from the new bait room today. Now I am ready to begin getting orders from all you guys that said you will be placing one soon.....LOL. I need something to do during these cold gloomy winter days so lets go. I'm ready......LOL!!! Softy aka Doug
  9. Thanks Steve, enjoy the trip and see you when you get back.
  10. Ok so I know there was about 1/2 dozen folks that told me they had bait orders ready when I was back up and running. I am working on one of those now and should be done soon. Now if ya'll are still planning on placing the orders I would appreciate it if you placed them so I know if I have enough material on hand to complete them or do I need to order some to complete the orders. The earlier the better so come on and get them orders in. Just PM me here or send me an email. drichards.sr@gmail.com Thanks Softy aka Doug
  11. Yea, I figured I would get those ugly color baits out of the way first plus your order was the first one I got so far...…….LOL.
  12. Well, it's been a little challenge but I finally got the bait room ready and began pouring a few baits and working on a bait order I have. I know a few folks here have said they have orders ready. You can send them to my email here drichards.sr@gmail.com or send them in a PM here. Thanks for being so patient while I put the bait room together. Now due to the change in my living area I will be driving about 44 miles round trip to the post office to ship the packages so I am being forced to increase my bait prices to account for the fuel so instead of $25.00 per 50 count it will now be $26.00 per 50 count. Look forward to hearing from ya'll Softbaitmaker, Softy, Doug
  13. Had a friend of mine here yesterday that is going to be installing the ventilation system to look and see what he is going to need to do to getit up and operational. Slowly working on getting it put together.
  14. Your best bet to wet a line in that area would be to get a map of the TWRA lakes in that area and see what lakes are nearby. I think there is several lakes to choose from and they are kept well stocked for some good fishing. You can even rent boats at some of their lakes............JMHO
  15. Thanks for the offer Rusty. I was just about to come here and post that my friend had a company in Texarcana Texas send him a replacment part to repair his Motorguide for $19.95. Motor guiide quit making these parts for them and this company bought out all of their back stock and still had about 10 left so my buddy bought 3 of them. They guy even told him step by step how to replace the part into his trolling motor.
