I got to try out the Ultrex, and like it so far. I am sitting in the Lubbock airport about to fly back home. I had a funeral to attend but managed to fish maybe 2 hours on Friday. I caught about 8 including this 16.25".
I just realized I haven't calibrated the compass yet, although it worked fine. I think I read that you have to make several circles like I had to do with my Garmin Force. Is that right?

I was hammering 40-60 fish every trip in October and am struggling to pull 5 off brush in November. New to crappie but I thought fall was one of the best times to fish?

Mine usually has so much fish slime on it I can’t see the fingerprints! Usually clean it off once or twice every trip!

Those October fish were still on the flats. They’re transitioning to a winter pattern now and while I rarely fish brushpiles I haven’t seen fish on any that I have run across Livescoping through timber the last couple weeks!! Main lake timber off the creek channel is where I would look!

Nice fish y’all! I was planning on going to beat up some winter slabs tomorrow but have a customer wanting to come in tomorrow afternoon. Told him it would be a lot easier if we just did e check and e sign! If he goes that route tomorrow morning I might be beating down slabs by lunch!

Didn’t book anything while the kids are out of school! Little man needs to go shank some slabs in the face!!

We are here on Palestine at Big Eddie bay for a few days, stumbling around with last-minute back-up electronics (‘Bird just died). Hoping to find a few crappie under the bridge tomorrow I guess

Crossmembers on the 155 usually are stacked this time of year! Small dark jigs. 1/16oz. Black and chart. Purple and chart or Shad colored would be my pick!

I have livescope on a dedicated Gyll and really like it. I plan to replace the trolling batteries next. I think David said gyll wasnt a good starting battery option?

No sir! Most motors say do not use a lithium for starting. Checked out some stuff I haven’t fished in a long time and found some new stuff! We stuck 30 in the cooler in 3 hours! Fished 12-3! Beats work! Little man hasn’t shanked slabs in a while! Headed to Oklahoma after thanksgiving to see if we can find a few ducks!

Garmin has a $200 rebate on Livescope now until the end of the year I believe! If you got everything else you need try out a pair of Hook and Bullet Light Pros! They’re the only sunglasses I’ve been able to put on in the morning and take off when I’m done cleaning fish! My 580s were back and forth between my hat and my face all day long! Not with these. They’re not cheap but nothing good is!!

Mallard man we are gonna need a report. What's the secret!?

I fought some wind yesterday on RC. Caught a few nice ones under the bridge. All the brush and timber were smaller fish. Only needed enough to make some smoked fish dip. Will report back tmw on the dip!

Had someone cancel so I decided to take a quick trip out since I was already on my way. Fished 7:30-930 trolling motor switch broke 1 fish shy of a limit. Drop or find brush. I guide on lake Houston and Conroe.

Look forward to hearing how the smoked fish dip goes!! Jenko has 30pxt off now through Monday on their website! If your looking for a dang good crappie rod at a great price look em up! I run mainly 11’ mid seat Kevin Rogers rods on my trips. Little man likes the 10’ and we both cast and shoot docks with the 7’ Trick Sticks! Spring time I’m gonna give their X15 a workout. For the $$ the Kevin Rogers can’t be beat IMO. Good mix of sensitivity and backbone!

Dip is good! Not near as good as Rick's though! I think next time I'll try cream cheese instead of sour cream.

Zach has been talking about coming up and going fishing with me for a couple of years.
We finally made it happen this morning.
It turned out to be a great day to be on the lake and he beat the beaks off the fish.

As they used to say in my home town paper… A good time was had by all
