  2. I was Marshall for Jason Christie @ Elite Series Toledo Bend when he landed this 9lb 10oz bigun. My 2nd Elite Series to Marshal. Lots of fun and what a great seminar. ...more Long day in a boat with no rod in my hand!!

  3. 7lb. April 21 and she still had eggs!! WHAT?

    7 lb. Largemouth Bass with a Watermelon Wacky Worm - both ends dipped in chartruse

      Eggs in April is rare but she was probably in the last wave of spawners. I caught one is December of last year that was full of eggs but for some reason, either ...more defective scale or she would've been a half pound not pregnant because she was 2lb 1.5oz, I was so confused about it. If I would've known that she was pregnant I wouldn't have kept her for supper that night. So now from December to the beginning of May I'm not gonna keep any. The only time that I do keep any is when I'm going to cook them that night or later that week. I probably keep a total of 20 a yr.

      Mostly 3/4 jig in buck brush about 2-4' shady side of brush. Middle of the day. Also throwing a frog behind brush in the middle of the day and catching 3-4lbers. ...more Jig was black and blue with black and blue trailer. He flips to a target 20' away and hits a dime.. Awesome display

  7. Ok, full post spawn is on. Scattered near creeks and following balls of baitfish. Get to know your electronics and make fine adjustments. You will see the baitfish ...more with bigger fish on the outside. Rattletraps, chatter bait, spinners, etc.

  8. Toledo Bend. Ok, spawn is still on but some of the females are moving off beds. Gotta throw behind hay grass w something seedless. I prefer Baby Brush Hog w 1/8 ...more oz weighted hook. Get ready, she's gonna pull hard.
    Happy Easter
