Table Rock: Qillback’s Report, Big M area, 9/2

Posted by Phil Lilley on September 3rd, 2016
Fuse.jpg

Rolled out of the Big M launch about 0615, went up lake a ways and worked a chunky rock bank that merged into a gravel point. Threw a Yum Might Bug, Texas rigged right up on the bank, dragging and hopping it back – caught several bass doing that, with a couple of keepers. That bite died off once the sun got over the hill, so did some different stuff, threw a shaky head for a bit, picked up a short, threw a buzz bait, picked up another short, then tossed a DD22, while paralleling some windy banks. DD22 also got me a short, and a miss on one that might have gone 2 lbs. that jumped and threw it. read more…

Out at first light – awesome day, nice temp. – Fished Indian Point to Point 5 area – caught several short SM and this one keeper (18 inch, 3 lb) SM.

I was in the complete back end of Spring Branch and a Wake Boat just had to be there even though there were few boats on the main channel, so I left – Bless their heart.

Water temo – 81 degrees – visibility 4 ft.

When coming off the lake today at Norfork Dam launch, another man was also leaving. He fished with Binks yesterday (8-17) and learned how to use Binks spoons. He bought several and fished alone today. He used a white spoon with red throat and landed a 31″ 12 # striper and a nice hybrid too. He is from Cabot, AR and said this was his first time coming to Norfork. He sang praises for Binks. I agreed as I’ve fished with Binks twice. Binks is a great guide and explains what he does so you can too. Thanks to Binks for being a great part of the Striper Club and helping all of us to be better at this thing we call “fun”.

Current River: Fishing with Ham, Shadow Bass and PB Smallie

Posted by Phil Lilley on August 8th, 2016

I was up at 3:15 am Friday Aug. 5th. Even though I couldn’t get a motel room in Eminence on Thurs. night to save a 3 to 3.5 hour drive to meet Ham at 9 am I couldn’t sleep. It has been several months since Ham and I set a date in May to take this trip. That got flooded out. Then we set a date in July and that trip got flooded out. It had been raining in Columbia since Monday, but no rain down south and the water gauges were stable through the week. We may actually get to fish on this trip. I packed my last bit of gear and food/drinks in the car and pointed it toward the Current River and was on the road by 4 am. As I turned out of my neighborhood the sky opened up and it just poured on me for 15-20 miles. Once it stopped, I didn’t see any more rain on the way to the Current. read more…

Went out at 6 AM with two friends of over 40 years. Marsh and Gene visit every three or four years and let me pretend I am a guide. Fortunately, I got lucky today. I did not fish but spent the time driving, baiting, and coaching. The two of them caught 5 keeper walleye at three locations. The small fish in the picture is 18.5 inches. The large fish is 24.5 inches. read more…
