    3. @Karen, yes it is! I thought it was about to start falling but we got another hard rain yesterday afternoon so maybe not. It is a little over 6 ft high right now.
    4. Karen daniel 0
      The lake is already up that high again? Great job finding them. I love the cypress trees!
    5. @Capt. Morris, yep I figured out they were under the Cypress trees that were flooded. In about 7 ft of water. We are about 6 ft over full again. Rain just keeps ...more coming .

  7. Weather not cooperating on the weekend, but managed one good one 4.5lbs on a double fluke rig with a white fluke.

    4 lb. 9 oz. Largemouth Bass with a Fluke

    1. nice one
    2. Thanks Tim.
    3. Tim Drawdy 0
      Nice one Shawn
    4. @Max, it is easiest to use a spinning rod for the double fluke rig, in med or med/heavy. The big ones can get you wrapped up in the grass so 30 lb braid for main ...more line and 20 lb flouro for leaders. Try it out in your part of the US it should work well.
    5. @Robert, we are getting some heavy rains and lots of lightning today. Guess it's a good time to watch the Masters tournament.πŸ˜”πŸ˜”
    6. Double fluke rig is a fluke on a leader that is tied to a barrel swivel then tied to main line, with a barrel swivel that can slide up the main line also with a ...more leader and a second fluke. You can look on you tube and see it also. You twitch it through the hay grass. It is deadly on bass this time of year.

      Double fluke? What's that?

  8. Not a great picture, but notice the black spots on the fins and tail, caught on a 1/2oz white spinner baits over a creek bed

    Largemouth Bass with a spinner bait

    1. I am using a half ounce spinner baits with a single Colorado blade, letting it sink near bottom then slow roll it and stop occasionally. Strikes usually come on ...more the pauses. No trailer, just a trailer hook. Using both white/chartreuse and chartreuse with gold blade.
    2. Eric Rooney 0
      Do you let the lure fall before starting your retrieve? Slow rollin it in? Been trying to get myself to throw them off the bank but my patience gets to me sometimes. ...more Trailer?

Fish for mostly largemouth but enjoy catching crappie in the summer time. Really anything that tugs on the other end of the line is fun to catch.

Fishing Favorites

  • Species Largemouth and crappie
  • Waterway Big Sam and Toledo Bend
  • Lure C-rig is my fav, then crankbaits, shakey head jigs, football jigs and senkos. I am learning to fish deep structure more. Still working on that first ten pounder. Personal best is an 8.3lb.
