  1. Past hour
  2. I would spend the extra money on Wera laser tip screwdrivers. They are the most solid, best gripping screwdrivers I've used. You don't want to mess up you reel screws!
  3. My enthusiastic egg hunters.
  4. Hey hey hey whoa whoa whoa. Are you suggesting the husky jerk is an “x rap knockoff?” The husky jerk was around before the x rap was ever thought of. And they are both made by the same company. Just ribbing you a little bit, good river info
  5. The chatterbait is a versatile bait. I fish from the bank and I'd have to say it's my favorite bait in lagoons with diminished visibility. In clear water it's not nearly as effective. How do I fish it? The first order of business it to fish it parallel to the bank, especially if there is cover like algae or aquatic vegetation for the bass to hide and ambush prey. Many times ripping it past cover for a second will draw them out to strike. It's also effective casting straight out from the bank into deeper waters and drawing those fish in closer to the bank. And remember, you don't have to stick to straight retrieves with it. You can fish it like a traditional jig, letting it hit the bottom, sit, then either lift it or drag it for a few pops before letting it settle to the bottom again. As for colors, I use a bluegill colored chatterbait with a Berkeley Havoc trailer in the Perfection color. I also have a whit chatterbait with flecks of gray/silver that I use with a cheap Zoom paddletail trailer in white. In fact, that combo has been on fire for me for the past week. I also have a black and blue chatterbait that I fish in clearer water and I have a blue crawfish trailer I use for that one. I don't get nearly as many strikes on that as I do the two listed above. I don't night fish from the banks down here because I don't want to be gator food.
  6. I always go weightless Texas rigged worm when I’m catching too much goop
  7. I hate the term "breezy". The weather people seem to love using it anytime we have gale force winds though. It's windy, that's what it is, windy. My wife's flower pots blew over, the 200 acre lake on my drive home from work had white caps on it, and whole trees where rocking violently back and forth in the wind, nothing "breezy", about what was going on outside.
  8. I use a modified poison jig mold to pour mine without the split ring. They're much more of a hassle to do, and I feel like I catch more big fish on the ones with the split ring though.
  9. I typically use a sweeping motion like I would with a Carolina Rig.
  10. There’s smallmouth in downtown Nashville in the Cumberland. And some 60 lb stripers!! Yes you could use that boat all the way upstream until you Start getting into trout water where they run jets. I’ve never driven directly from Nashville to Chattanooga but I’m guessing 2-2.5 hours on I-24. Its a treacherous stretch of road according to Johnny cash coming down monteagle mountain. “It’s a loooong steeeep grade!” (You should check out that song) The two main bass lakes near Nashville are Percy priest and old hickory. Lots of LM in both, good SM population in priest. Center hill dale hollow and Cordell Hull are also in the area
  11. Well that all depends on which part of Tennessee you live in
  12. I hold mine the same way so I can't do it with a baitcaster, but I do it all the time with spinning.
  13. They're best in shallow water imo, especially around vegetation. White with a chartreuse trailer in lakes without shad is a great fish producer for me.
  14. 10 packs of green pumpkin and watermelon Powerbait Maxscent "The General" worms at Wal-Mart this morning for $1.50 a pack, score!
  15. There is one thing you can do............ “Lieutenant Dan!!!! Ice cream!!!”
  16. Is thread at the tip top purely decorative, or is it necessary for strength? Also do you guys usually run the thread over the base of the tip top or stop flush with it?
  17. From my personal experience, if you have 200-300 to spend you NEED to consider Megabass Orochi XX (or even a new Levante), Shimano Expride, and either the St Croix Legend Tournament or Avid X line.
  18. I have the Abu Garcia Fantasista Regista 7' M Fast and it is fine rod. I would say the sensitivity is on par with most of the G Loomis GLX's I have but it doesn't have that magical balancing feel, of say my 783C GLX. In the price range you are looking at, I would say the St. Croix Legend Tournament 7' MH Fast is a great get it all done rod. The Avid is also a fine rod at a few dollars less.
  19. Largemouth 100%. Come on guys that looks nothing like any other species
  20. Was out on tonka Saturday. North arm parking was darn near full. Maxwell bay dock was not in and was half full. Saw at some ice on the edges of Crystal Bay but outside of that it’s all clear. Beautiful day to break in a new boat and motor. See you all on the water...Opener can’t come soon enough!
  21. Fishidy has a few mentions of LMBs being caught in Bailey. Don't know if it's the lack of reporting, or a severe shortage of them that has so few mentions. https://www.fishidy.com/map/us/texas/burleson-ponds There's also some old (2010-2011) reports of LMBs coming out of Bailey as well on another forum https://texasfishingforum.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/5017284/Bailey_lake_hidden_creek_in_bu
