Please take 2 minutes and watch this short video about cold water safety. We have a couple of fellows every year die here on LOP.
This suit could save your life

2020!? I'm working today and tomorrow but back in the saddle Wednesday! I expect fish will be harmed. I remember that day. I think my boat was right behind her. Great fish!

Think we fish 12-13 national tournaments this year and 6 local club tourneys and maybe a few others. I wish Wally would announce the qualifiers for the Crappie Expo soon. I would like to fish a couple of those even though we're already qualified for next year at Branson. He put's on a heck of a show but to be honest I'm not real excited about going back to Table Rock but I bet the excitement will grow as we get closer. Our goal last year was to get a trophy and that happened on the second to last national tourney of the year with a second place finish at the Crappie Masters National Championship on Darbonne. We start our national season back there the end of February and then go back again in late March for the American Crappie Trail National Champioship. We fish Grenada 3 times this year, Lake Washington, Rend Lake, Quachita river twice, Truman Lake twice, and one national tourney on Fork for Crappie Masters. Crappie USA didn't come back to Fork, was hoping for a hat trick on Pro Series wins there but won't happen!

Looking forward to Grenada in March, if we can catch the water right that could be another EPIC trip! We had 7 crappie that weighted 20.94 pounds last year. Probably saved me $1500 not having that .06 to get us to 21 pounds because there would have been a replica stringer made! It did include my personal best of 3.71! Almost forgot to get her measurements before I turned her loose! My son also landed his first 3 pounder last year and is currently the Lake Fork Jr Angler record holder at 3.17! Super proud of him but sure wish I caught it that day! Oh well!

Thanks to all the great partners that help us out along the way! We couldn't do it without you!

Hide 2022 slabs! I'm coming to your town!!

Thanks for starting a new thread Marty. And for the safety tip link.

The best to all out there this year!

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

Maybe on a lake that is not 12' high and have an actual crappie get together instead of a White Bass Gymboree?

Still had a good time, the beer was cold and food was good!

First 50 of the new year took a ride. Had 4 over 2 pounds with a 2.35 big fish. Having to keep them is stupid! Heading back to lakes I can throw them back later this week! Haven’t been on Fork in a couple months. Fished 3 spots and caught fish on all of them!

I ran out to Palestine to run some fuel through my boat since it has been sitting for so long last Friday. While I was draining the lower unit real good in anticipation of the freeze I walked over to the cleaning table to check out what a guide and his client had in the cooler. They had the biggest limit of crappie I have ever seen! They said they caught over 100 and only kept fish over 14” and up to 16”

I am sure the cold front changed things up.

Crappie Masters TV is back on! Just watched Mike Valentine put a Conroe sized stringer on Grenada! 19 pounds! Not too shabby!! Can’t wait to get back there in March! Hopefully can hit the water right again!

I ran a few trips between Christmas and New Years just to clean up those last few remaining fish. Pines is all cleaned out. Nothing left but cat fish and carp

I wish one of you gurus would come to Granbury and show me how it's done. I'd buy the beer

Unfortunately I don't have livescope. Talking to the guys that do, it just sounds like cheating. They pull up to a dock and see exactly what is under it in a few seconds then either fish or move on. Is it really that easy?

Yes it is.... One of the biggest benefits is it keeps you from fishing where there are no fish

Great message here! We used mustang survival gear that would both “keep you warm” on an airboat and would serve as flotation in case we ended up in the water. Thankfully we never put the flotation part to use other than in training.

In addition to this gear, we added a small pouch that contained two fire making devices. Wet and cold will kill you fast. Stay safe out there!

Wish everyone going out fishing tight lines and fishy smelling hands

MF the whole world. Pretty sure my brand spanking used Evinrude blew up.

Whatever. Can't get any worse.

Took it out to scout the giant private lake I just got access too by my new place. Fired up, weird noise, water dumping out the cowling. No more turnover. F it. I'm just going to drink now.

Dang flex I hate to hear it. Maybe a rebuild project with the kids. Will keep my eyes out for used motors.

On the bright side the creek fishing is getting hot! Probably can do some damage from the banks.

Whatever. Can't get any worse.

Took it out to scout the giant private lake I just got access too by my new place. Fired up, weird noise, water dumping out the cowling. No more turnover. F it. I'm just going to drink now.

Unfortunately I don't have livescope. Talking to the guys that do, it just sounds like cheating. They pull up to a dock and see exactly what is under it in a few seconds then either fish or move on. Is it really that easy?
James Davis can put you on slabs on Your lake! He’s also big into those striped trash fish too! It’s a good dock lake that’s all I know.

Flex, you've had more probs with motors in the last year or two than anyone I know. Hope you can find one that works for ya brother.


I've been though quite a few used ones over the years, since 1983. Finally bought a new one in 2015. It's had a few minor issues (impeller ain't nothun, fuel lift pump during 2020 covid summer when parts were not available, clogged fuel filter). But it's been pretty dependable for the most part. It set me back a little at the time I bought it due the money it cost me, even with the dealer's discount/clearance. But well worth it.
