@metz12 you win, it's much harder to hook a fish with that small a mouth than a big fish that swallows the bait.  (giggle)

The Hawg Forum / Felt like Fall

With temps at 54 degrees and a 10 mph wind it sure felt like Fall this morning. Things started slow until @ProvidenceBassHunter and I got the spinner bait dialed in, then we landed so quality fish.

Landed 14 fish today out of the canoe and lost one giant, most fish had a really good average weight. Stealth is key..

@metz12 , it was a weird weather morning. Clouds then sun, the torrential downpours. We had 2 inches of water in the boat and there was a river running down the boat ramp when we pulled out. @ProvidenceBassHunter I heard there was a tornado in Woodstock just 20 miles from us, I told you that looked like a funnel cloud. Lol

Even though I caught these quality fish before the storm, we still caught fish during the downpours. One other thing, I'm not sure I could have landed the big fish in the thick cover without the good net work of @ProvidenceBassHunter , thanks Bro.

Thanks @Curt - RI , it's amazing how many big fish never get caught in pressured waters. I'm sure if I was plowing through the weeds with a trolling motor, those fish would have never bit.

The Hawg Forum / Great day in the canoe
« on: July 28, 2018, 11:37:33 AM »
Caught nearly a 20lb limit today out of my canoe from a small public pond. Funny thing I've noticed with places like this is that they get so much pressure if you're not there early you won't catch much. Once the sun comes up and people hit the water the bite shuts down.

If you have a smaller boat, you can make a small hole in a cooler to run a aeration line which I have done and I always used ice to regulate water temp in summer months. I would even go so far as to use oxygen tablets and have never weighed in a dead fish. It's obvious these people don't care about the resource. Hard to believe they can't see the trees through the forest.

My point was the craft and skill of the fisherman has been put on the back seat, it's just like cell phones, people can do crap without them like reading a map for instance. As I said it was just my rant, but it sure is fun taking 1st place money from a guy in a fully rigged boat as I drive away with my crawdad in my truck.  (giggle)

Good points @Curt - RI , I hear you on the bottom contour and the GPS at night, electronics have there place but I think its gotten out of hand. Perhaps if I fished the great lakes I'd be arguing for the other side of the coin.

This is in no way a slight on you or anyone who uses a Hydro-wave but what ever happened to just going out and catching fish. I have a Crawdad and a small canoe and have no electronics, temp gauge or anything but a trolling motor. Why is it we feel the need to have every electronic advantage on the market? Sure if I was fishing the Elites and Hydro-wave threw a ton of money at me I'd have it tattooed on my butt, but at what point are we still the skilled fisherman if we can find the fish with sonar, turn on our Hydro-wave to excite the school and drop down to catch them while watching on our graph. I'll say it again this is not meant to be an insult, I know you can fish, it's just my rant and I don't have the money for all that high end stuff.  :hmm:

The Hawg Forum / Re: Spinnerbait and Buzzbait Trailer Hooks
« on: July 01, 2018, 09:07:33 PM »
If you're not using a trailer hook then you are missing two or three fish a day that you probably never even felt. Just today I caught two bass that just had the trailer hook. If you're in a tourney those two fish could mean a win. This is coming from a guy who has been making spinner baits for over 10 yrs and throws them every trip out.
