New job and haven't really had much fishing time this year. Took off about 4:45 this evening and took the boat out. First time it's got wet since the 6/6 real estate tourney.

I actually put together a 20+ lb limit tonight. Haven't been able to do that in a couple of years. '07 was a decent year, '08 was my worst fishing year ever I believe.

According to my Bass Pro scales the smallest LM was a touch over 3.5 lbs. Largest was 5.25.

I can't believe how they were hitting tonight and all but one caught on a crankbait. I've always had crankbaits but never caught a LM on one til this year. In my last three outings I've caught 9 good quality keepers with a crank and a few more that didn't quite measure. Small ducks were getting tapped while they were swimming, bait fish jumping everywhere.

I really needed a good fish outing without getting skunked.

Wow!! Nice stringer. I was on Old Hickory yesterday afternoon and only caught a few short fish. How deep are you fishing and are you using a "magic" crankbait...LOL !!

Yep, you got me out of my Sandy Chapel doldrum! LOL! I caught a mess of crappie and bg to eat and was gonna watch your technique for cleaning, but it was so late when I got home I couldn't call. Cleaned them and Alex and I have already released them ;\)

I have exactly one crankbait and I've had the same one for about 2.5 years. Just never caught fish with it until this year. I've caught 3 fish on it this year that struck it like a top water before I could reel. It's inexpensive 4-8' depth and supposedly a crawfish pattern, but looks more like tiger coloring to me. Bandit is the brand and if you get the Bassmaster magazine, a few months back they did a segment on budget lures that are really good (paraphrase) and this lure was one of them. Dug it out of the box this year to give crankin' another try and I'm glad I did.

I motored to one spot and trolled within a small area with banks on two sides. Absolute center maybe 12' deep. I kept the boat planted off center in 4-6' of water and targeted laydown and grass. Of course 4-8' crankbait and the bottom felt very soft. Casting toward the bank and guessing the strike zone was 2-3'.

When Bowriter first made me quit going to Sandy Chapel and go to Davis Corner about 2 years ago, I found this little spot. Maybe 1 3#'er all this time. I spent time searching other spots, but if it got boring I could usually go over there and wear a few 10-12"'ers out. Either they grew or new blood moved into the neighborhood.

PM me and I'll take you there. Friday night if I can get out of the office at a decent time I might go. Otherwise I'm stuck helping my MIL move the rest of the weekend.

Usually, the first hour fishing at DC, we don't even start the big motor.

I do that quite often myself. I park my boat in the garage so the keys are always in it, but I left the boat outside for a 3 week period at one time under a "weather proof" cover and kept the keys inside to prevent theft somewhat. Got to the ramp a few times and realized no boat keys, but was still fine.
