  2. Kenneth, I catch my shiners with a pole and with a net but I would like to know what is best to chum them up with. I've used bread, dog food, and cat food. ...more Is their anything that might work better?

    1. Doyle Shaw
      Okay thanks, I'll try it.
    2. Maybe some cheap oatmeal mixed with sand (wet )

    4. Mike D
      DAaaang !!! Hawg !!!!
    5. Conlee Clower
      Thank you sir!
    6. Conlee, There won't be. Cold fronts coming thru tonight (33 degrees) wind and post front blue skies. The artificial bite was just starting to pick up with the ...more warm stable weather, now a new cold front. Shiner is the only good bet , right now. Wait a month for the artificial bite to kick in, a couple weeks in the 80's should get it going
    7. Shawn Gearinger
      Great catch! Nice hawg!
    8. Conlee Clower
      Let me know how it goes on artificials from Thursday 3/16 thru Monday 3/20th if anyone gives it a go
    9. Rich Pardy
      Man what a monster and to top it off 2 like that!!
    10. Thank you Don, had a really good February and March is shaping up well also. Rodman was on fire with big fish near the end of the month. Had 12 bass over 9 lbs in ...more a 14 day period. Off the chain. Slowed down a little in the last week or so, some. Rodman has made this rookie guide look good this year. Thanks for the great comments and support.
    11. Both Capt. Makes it hard to work shiners. And all the way to the surface in most places.
    12. Don Smith
      Great day! You are bad ass Capt. Ken.
    13. Melissa Norris
      wow nice catch! 😀
    14. Morris Campbell
      Wow!! Pads , hydrilla?
    15. No. Capt Campbell, those areas are chocked out with vegetation now. Place has completely changed in 6 months. But thank you for the advice.
    16. Morris Campbell
      Did you try those areas we talked about??
    17. Morris Campbell
      Nice work Capt Kenneth!!!

    1. Morris Campbell
      Thanks guys. Kenneth we went through 8 dozen jumbos both days. Only had 3 that were omg size. They didn't get any of them near the net. It was game on for the3-5 ...more lbers!
    2. Great job Capt. Haven't seen numbers like that Ever ! And I thought 30+ days at Rodman during draw-down was awesome. Keep up the great work
    3. Ben Ford
    4. Rich Pardy
      You guys are slacking, you couldn't even hit the hundred mark in 2 days :) OK I'm officially jealous, awesome couple of days of fishing buddy!!
    5. Wade Bowles
      53! That murdering them, Morris
    6. Morris Campbell
      It was tough fishing the wind the first day and the air temp dropped almost 40 degrees overnight!!! Still not snowing though..:))
    7. Morris Campbell
      Brian, they bass fish all over the country and are big time believers in the Stick Marsh now.
    8. Morris Campbell
      You guys must be having crazy weather. It was 80 Thursday and 46 Friday morning here!!! Wind was 20-30
    9. I've caught nothing in 3 trips for 2 weeks and I'm starting to twitch...
    10. I hope you gave those young men some pain meds for the reel shoulder the next morning!! Sounds like an awesome day on the water!!!
    11. Tim Swartz
      Sounds like a day in heaven, as I look out my window at the 6in. of snow. Very nice Morris, enjoy the good fishing n good weather.
