How many of you guys open bass season on the Ole Miss?

Recommended Posts

Mark Christianson

Well, since I am going stir crazy(as well as a bunch of my buds), I am already thinking open water.

There is always a lot of chat around bass opener as it comes around, but I am just curious how many of you out there hit the Upper Miss for your inaugural bass casts for the season?

What areas do you guys like to hit? Not looking for ANY specifics. Just curious how dispersed people are, or if everyone hits a couple areas.

I know me and "the boyz" are seeming to be getting a bit over anxious and even stressed just waiting for open water.

I get home from Alaska on Memorial day, so I may not be able to make it out for the bass opener, which will be a first in many years for me. But I will be out my first opporunity upon getting home.

What is the first lure everyone is going to throw in the water for the bass opener?

It depends on the water level, but for the first of the bass openers I'm heading up nort on a lake. (Why does the bass season open earlier up nort I dunno) Then for the opener down here I'll prolly hit the sippi. I'll prolly toss crankbaits first, but we'll see.

I don't know where Im going, depends on the weather, might go to a little wright county lake and see if the spawn is on, if not will probably be on the river somewhere. My first cast will probably be a jig and pig either way. Hopefully the waters high and muddy on the river by then grin.gif

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
