I will be there around noon on Saturday and fishing alone.  I would be happy to have you join me.  If the wind isn’t too bad I am going on the main lake.  If it is bad then I will explore the creeks of SM.  I will touch base on Friday.

Sounds good bro.

Went out on a high pressure day, knowing it would be tough.  Fished about 4 hours.  Checked several deep drops, including deep flats along the river.  Saw a lot of shad balls, but the bass seemed to be suspended away from structure at about 10 ft. deep.  A Table Rock guide would wax 'em, but not me.  

 

Before I quit, I moved to the back of a small creek, and found them along a sunny bank, just a few feet off the creek, 5-8 feet deep.  They wouldn't chase anything I tried, so I went to the last resort--a spinning rod with 10 lb. mono, and an 1/8 oz. shakey head with Zoom finesse.  Saved the day!  Nothing big, but caught 9 in a short time, and missed a couple.  Left them biting for another day.

I have a club tournament on Toledo January 26 and won't have the pleasure of a depth finder. I'm majorly lurking this thread.

Side note talked to a local this morning at the station in zwolle, they had been out night fishing them white perch, him and 4 family members limited last night.

 

Said live shinners at 23 feet of water, said they caught probably 50 small buck bass as well.

Well finally got to wet a hook yesterday! Tried deep structure and could not get a bite. Went into Mill Creek and caught several short fish but did manage to catch an 18-1/2" and one just over 15" on texas rig junebug centipede in 10 to 15 fow. Fish where in the front 1/3 of the creek. Hope this helps someone.

Catt. Let me know if you got a source for those in 1/4 once.

 

Toledo town seems to only keep 1/2 once in stock.

 

1/4once is the bomb

Bill Lewis may not make em in 1/4 oz any more.

 

Gold, black back, orange belly is a classic color but everyone has moved on to the new fandangled colors!

 

Gold Tennessee Shad works good or I'll buy gold black back & paint the belly.

 

Don't forget Red Chrome 😉

I think they still make a red craw or something like that in 1/4 that I use. I'll post a picture when I get home if I remember.  I started adding flo orange paint (the one made for tipping gun sights)on the bottom.  I always switch back and fourth between the 1/2 and 1/4.  I never noticed a big difference in size of fish caught but some days they will eat both, some days neither, but some days they prefer one or the other.
