Well the boat is full of gas, the rods and reels have been checked, redtails are plentiful in the bait well and I'll be getting up in a matter of hours to get on the river, my son is having a bunch of friends over to pull a allnighter, doubt I'll get much sleep. A friend of mine is going to be at my house by 5am. Should be on the river by 5:30 for sure,plan on fishing till 10 or so! The fish should be active and bunching up with feed bags on! It's going to be a great time on the water! grin.gif

Got on the river by 5:30, had dreams of having a livewell full of tails by 10am but no dice. Did however end up with two eyes and a sauger that had eggs in it and a couple throw back eyes. (Yes turk I found eggs again) Caught a couple smallies worthy of a few photos and had a great time!

Made it out and on the water by 6:30: two cats and one sheephead-. Jig and a minnow. I think I have one or even two bad batteries, trolling motor dead by 9:30. And we were done. Maybe tommorrow.

Got to the river early but the bite was slow, the highlight of the morning a 24 1/2 eye which when back in to fight another day, 2 other small eyes and a nice smallie, just that one releaser made my day, nice time!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test    Tried to take a pic and flash wouldn't work on phone      Cret

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.
