    Bass migration

    My memory isn't as good as it once was but I remember , I think, KY Wildlife Agency used to tag fish and upon the return of tag a guy could collect a few bucks! Never cashed in. But it was a tool used in tracking fish movement. That too was a few moons ago!

    Wish ya'll more crappie but I'm gonna have to go with the deep thinkers! Not sure if crappie released after hooking deep are different from their cousins, black bass. But if we catch bass deeper than say 20ft they gotta get fizzed or released asap. If you keep em in the live well they get bloated, float upside down and have trouble surviving. But fizzed, a lot on youtube on this, or released asap and they'll live to fight another day. My problem is catching em fist!

    Any Garmin Echomap owners here?

    I've owned this unit in 7 inch. Fairly simple to use, great mapping, great sonar, DI, SI. I actually like Garmin better than the HDS Lawrence I use now. Slicker than a peeled onion!

    Rod repair in Knoxville area?

    I would check with local tackle shops. Most have a guy that picks them up at the shops and returns a few days later, If this is a fly rod try Orvis in Sevierville.

    Glad to see that you are doing well. It's best to follow instructions from the Dr even if you don't want to LOL
  10. Glad you got a good shop! Hard to find sometimes. Ty's Outboard , located not far from German Creek bridge on Cherokee, is also an e-tec shop. FYI for those living nearby

    49 pound bag in FL - WOW!

    Enjoyed this video--a bunch. But as I was watching, I couldn't help from think they could have used both live wells. That's a lot of fish for such a small space. Maybe it didn't work. Happens. I get it that they want to weigh without a crowd. Lakes in FL are very crowded but fish care is important. I haven't been to Big O in many years, used to go every year for a few days in winter. It can be slicker than a peeled onion one minute and rougher than a 3 week payday the next!

    Guntersville first trip 2018

    I'd start as far back in cuts and creeks as I could get. Work my out to mail lake points. Add a jig to your list. Some of the bass will be very shallow, bedding. Scattered from 1st secondary point to back. G-ville has many large flats off of main TN river channel. I highly recommend staying away from barge traffic and if you do fish a ledge or 2 be prepared for high rollers. Good luck
