All fish caught on standing timber with hand tied jigs. The fish were extremely spooky today but the lake has taken a pounding over the last few weeks.

I did it myself. It was a pain. I bought mine from BBG Marine. Cheaper than any advertised price, but dont buy directly from their site, email and get a quote.

Im sure some ( most? ) ( especially newer ) boats will be easier, but I had to run a whole new circuit to a new fuse block to meet the power requirements.

I got all my stuff from Zeke at the Bass Tank. Free shipping and no tax. It's easy to install yourself. I would recommend a seperate battery. Alot of places will wire it to your cranking battery and they draw alot of juice! Especially the 10 and 12" screens. As for size don't look at a 10 or 12" screen ever if you get the 9". I have a 10" and wish I got the 12. 1222 is all you need if it's for Livescope.

Well without Tapacrap my reports are gonna suck, but this weekend was awesome again! 15 pound plus stringers 3 days in a row! Poked around some Friday and had a cooler full but fishing was awful tough. Sat and Sunday were like you flipped a switch and had limits both days with multiple 2 plus pound fish. Had several 2.30s and a 2.42 on my scale this weekend. It weights light so can probably add .2 pounds at least to those and I get a pound on anything over 13 pounds from my scale on a certified scale so I'm sure we were more mid 16 pounds on 7 crappie. Those RC crappie are getting smaller and smaller and I'm not even there yet!

Fishing next weekend then gotta find time to go to Darbonne! Never been there but I wanna go!

Then onto Grenada hopefully!

My life is consumed by a dang panfish!!!

I went to the boat show this weekend. I knew there was going to be some temptations there and luckily i didn't buy anything! But i did fall in love with the G3s. Those boats are sweet! Just dreaming about a nice yamaha 4 stroke some day.

BUT, if anyone is looking to update their graphs, I called Bass Pro in Garland and found out they still had some Helix 10 Mega SI G2N units. They rang up for $999 which is the black Friday price. The new G3N models are $2K so this is about the best value i've been able to find. They are supposedly holding more back in the warehouse to be sold at the spring fishing classic sale.

That's a good deal, and what I run on my console. Does it have the "Go To" feature?

Good deal right there TA! That's how I got my first Helix 10 G1. Wait till the new tech comes out and old stuff on clearance.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!

I picked up a G2 Helix 10 a week ago a Cabelas for that same price. In fact I got the 10 G2 and 7 G3 for less than a G3 10.

Thanks for starting this thread. I recently moved to Rockwall area from Mississippi. I have crappie fished my whole life at the big three lakes Sardis, Enid and Grenada. Looking forward to figuring them out this spring once they move into shallow water and I can wade with my jig pole!!!

Here is my new prototype bow livescope screen mount. It is adjustable from 22" to 29" height wise and turns 360. I have $83 invested including the base. Should be easy to see whether sitting or standing.

Will report back following install and sea trials!

Thanks. Ended up with 19. Mostly on timber. Most were right above bottom, but some were about 4ft from bottom. 18' water. Didnt see many fish at all in shallower water. Wind was rough after 10am or so.

Snowflake, I went where we went ( as you suggested )

Nice, I got my boat back from an overdue service and I'm ready to get back to Conroe so I can figure em' out too! A few weeks ago, we caught a few in about 10-15 FOW suspended in about 8ft.

My first jigs from scratch. Poured the heads, powder paint, baked them and then tied them up.
