Anyone planning on heading to the lake in the morning? I was going to go tonight until these storms came out of nowhere.

I think I will possibly put in at Crows Creek and head up Camp Branch. Might go for the Smithville Slam again? Lee

On the water at 6:00. Can't catch anything on jigs, must just be me. LOL
Pulled out cranks and caught several dinks, 4-5 keepers and several white
bass, man what a load they are on crappie tackle. Hard on equipment! Had
a 13" and 15" w.b. on at same time and in the net at same time, won't do that again with treble hooks what a mess. Great time, for me as long as I am catching sumpin. Don't keep anything.

Well wife and I stayed till about 9:30. Only thing I needed was a Walleye today for the Slam. I even caught me a 3lb flathead on a crankbait today. never caught one of those before.

Of course after fishing in Burtons tournament on Thursday night and not weighing a keeper in. I catch a 5 fish limit this morning in 2 hours. Just my luck again.

Was as calm as you will ever see Smithville on a Saturday. Lee

Ohh yeah 3 Crappies is all I got lol

took the two little ones out this morning north of roberts. hard to get a bite on jig so i started picking up the floating shad that were about 1 inch long and started dropping them in by the trees and the bite was on. ended up with twelve fish 10-13 inches. off by eleven,getting to hot and the kids want to go home to swim. i also think i saw double d up there doing some stump jumping but other than that it was pretty quiet up there. oh if anyone is interested i did see several schools of whites busting water up there early this morning.

Rodney up north yesterday the shad was all over the place about 2 inch shad I was wondering if the bite was on minnows. Seen a couple shad floating but not many.The jig bite was real slow had to hold it in front of them forever.

I might go after White bass in the morning..... I saw them schooling on top yesterday when I was on the water in the early morning.

Just got back again. Weather was a little more tolerable this morning. Went up north in Eberts way back. Ended up getting quality fish on Washoppers pink/chart.

Dave the loop knot worked good. I could tell a difference jigging it.

Got my Walleye today, but lost my favorite crankbait today. Looks like I will have t make a stop into Rogers today to get some more.

Water is getting a little dirty now compared to last week.

I did it was in about 4' of water. I just figured I could reel down to it and unhook it?? Well I thought I had done so pulled the rod up and broke my line. Lure was still on something :mad:
