    TNBF #6 Cherokee Night

    It was good to meet you guys to. Hopefully we can do a little better than 1 bluegill this weekend. I fished with by friend in his club tournament Saturday night and he showed me a thing or two, so maybe we won't come in empty handed.

    Best deep diveing cranking rod

    I have 4 of the old Quantum 3.8 to 1 reels and still use them to this day. You can't beat it for ease of cranking with big plugs like the XD-10's but getting Bass to the boat after hookup is a different story. If they come at you it's almost impossible to keep up with them. What I use them most for now is Walleye fishing. You can't crank slow enough for Walleye with the spoonbill plugs so the 3.8 to 1 works great.

    TX#4 Douglas Results

    Thanks for posting the results. I was wondering what place we ended up in.

    Triton boats

    I doubt very seriously that Triton boats will be leaving any time soon. Way to big of a money maker for Johnny.

    Bladed jigs

    Don't ask me. I have two of them that I got out of trees while fishing and have only bought one other but have yet to tie one on.

    Back to The Creek 9-22

    Made it back to Beech Creek Friday . It was a nice day to fish but we only caught 5 bass with the biggest going around 2 1/2 lbs. Dad went with me and he got three of them on a popper and I got mine on a frog and a jig. We lost a couple too, He had a smallmouth that would have been over 3 lbs. but it jumped and spit the plug.

    3 Stainless steel Props??

    They should have some numbers on the inside where the shaft comes through the hub. Try cleaning the black circle in the hub. I downloaded the pics of the Rakers and think I can see some of the numbers on the bottom pic.

    2nd Trip To The Creek

    It was a lot cleaner last week. I could only see my jig for about 1 foot yesterday.

    2nd Trip To The Creek

    Well I made my second trip to Beech Creek this morning but unfortunately the fish didn't cooperate as good this week. I caught 1 on a jig right off the bat about 2 lbs. and then got 1 on the frog that would only go 1.5 lbs. I only had 1 other hit on the frog and I broke my line on a hook set with a small creature bait strike and that was it. I fished from daylight till 12:30 and call it a day. Water temp was 73 to 75 deg.

    First Trip to Beech Creek

    I finally made it to Beech Creek yesterday and I have to say it sure is a beautiful place to go fishing. If you like to flip wood or fish a frog in grass like me , this is the place to go. I found the ramp at a little after 7 and fished till 1:30 when it started raining. I caught my 1st fish on my 3rd cast on a frog that was about a 1.5 lbs. and my last fish on the frog that was 3.5 lbs. my biggest for the day. I ended up with 8 fish total 4 on the frog and 4 on a jig but I missed several more strikes on both. I saw some deer , a raccoon and a bald eagle and i'm still kicking my butt for not having my good camera with me.

    Phoenix sighting

    A big part of used boats not selling is that a bank will not finance it for 15 years with 0 percent interest. People that have the money to buy without a bank just get new boats with the warranty every 4 or 5 years and trade them in to a dealer before it expires.

    blacklight question

    I always use the low setting on mine if I'm by myself. If my dad is with me I turn them on high so he can see the bank better. He's 76 years old and has a little trouble fishing in the dark now but at least he still loves to get out and fish.

    Wear Your PFD & Kill Switch

    I read on BBC that the bolt on the steering arm came out just as they were crossing the wake from the other boat. There was nothing he could do to keep it from hooking. I was ejected from the boat during the blast off of the Watson's open on Boone Lake a few years ago. I was the passenger in a Tr-18 Triton and as we crossed the wake from another boat it turned hard right and threw me a good 30 to 40 feet from were the boat ended up. I was sure glad I was wearing my life jacket.
