Incredible season on the Ivie. Produced the largest bass since '99, plus the whole smallmouth ordeal. Very impressive production.

They are really biting good on Fayette also but I just hate to fish in 15mph winds!

From that pic it looks like you found a place to get out of the wind.

Won the first annual Horseshoe Bay members bass tournament last Saturday. Not exactly a huge field but hey, we won by over 3 lbs with 11.88#. All sight fishing bed fish.

Ughh can’t ever get pictures to load from my phone.

I would be interested depending on where it was held. Lake Whitney or Belton would be nice lakes....I have never fished either one, but have watched some good fishing shows from them.

Alright so I need some input. I know fly rods, I want to upgrade my conventional gear, looking to pick up 3 new rods, 2 casting as a spinning. No boat so all bank fishing if that makes a difference. Here is what I’m thinking

7’3” m, fast action
7’4” mh, moderate

7’1” ml, fast action spinning

Okay or better recommendations?

I would go with a 7 6 heavy fast, 7 3 Medium heavy fast or moderate depending on what you fish the most and a 7 medium fast spinning rod.

Tx rigs up to 1/2 oz go with MH-F anything bigger go with a heavy-fast
Spinner baits same basic thing.
Medium Heavy is your all purpose type rod. I would only go with mod or mod fast if fishing crankbaits

I'd get 2 7' to 7' 3" MH fast action baitcasters and a 7ish foot ML spinning rod. You can do anything you want to do from the bank with that.

A 7'4" MH moderate would be something I would throw a mid depth crankbait on which is not something I would throw off the bank in most cases.
