Roosevelt / Re: LTF Crappie Tournament

Will do One Blade. A brief scenario would  be: Sign in the morning of the tournament and then receive boat check, then you may launch wherever you chose, proceed to where you want to fish and wait (honor system) for your phone to give you the designated starting time. Fish as long as time allows but be in weigh-in line at 3 p.m. Sound familiar? You may keep your fish or let the weighmaster put them in the release tank for putting back in the lake. After weigh-in you will be fed, usually pizza or sloppy joes or pulled pork, chips, and soda or water. More to come. ......Art

Roosevelt / LTF Crappie Tournament
« on: January 13, 2019, 08:29 PM »
I got a call this afternoon from Tracy Purtee of Let's Talk Fishing and because of the government shut down he can not obtain a permit for 2/23. He is scheduling the tournament for Saturday, March 16th out of Badger at Windy Hill. I'm meeting with Tracy next Saturday and should have most of the details that evening. The entry fee per two man teams will be all in for $80 and pay back one spot for each three teams. .....Art

We again had a flock of 12 geese fly over us going from Haystack to Windy Hill and saw two pair of mallards on the east side of Windy. .....Art

We fished today from 9:30 until 1:15 and sadly again we never got a bite. We visited four habitats and three had plenty of fish while the fourth had almost nothing. Trying times! .........Art

We fished today from 9:30 until 1:15 on three habitats that had loads of fish. We never got bit and it was the same for the three boats trolling around Steamboat and Windy Hill. More weather predicted for later this week. .......Art

We fished yesterday from 9:45 until 2:15 on five habitats including two of the new ones. We caught 2 nice crappie and 2 lm bass on our 3' Ugly Stick fun poles on jigs. Some habitats had mucho fish and a couple had hardly any. Now more storms but will try again Tuesday, weather permitting. ........Art

Now your seeing what I was up against in December! Weather permitting we'll kick off 2019 on Friday and hope for the best. These fish haven't fed (that I know of) since November so a few days of steady barometric pressure should start a feeding frenzy, I hope! Happy New Year. ......Art

General Discussion / Re: Alberto Knot - Tieing Braid to Fluoro
« on: December 24, 2018, 02:03 PM »
Here it is: Go to the Fishing with Johnny Johnson website then bring up youtube. Go to the show Swimbaits with Kevin Finley, then go to the 12 and a half minute mark and Kevin will show you how to tie the refinded alberto knot. I watched it a few times, got it down pat and it's small, very strong, and important to me, quick and easy! That's my Christmas present to all! .......Art

We use Sunline Sniper in 5 and 6 lb. test and have  very few break offs. We tie it to our braid with the refined Alberto knot. No problems. .....Art

I fished yesterday with Kasey and my oldest son. Rick (visiting from Pa.), from 10 until 1:15 and the fish were in government shut down for us! Fishing three habitats Kasey caught a bass and Rick a crappie and I zipped. My friends Jack and another Rick also had 1 crappie when we left but said the bite turned on shortly after. They fished eight or nine habitats and caught 14 crappie and a couple other species on minnow tipped jigs. Late bite! Merry Christmas to all. ........Art

You were right on about the habitat placement.  Warnecke and I were stowaways on their boat for a while yesterday morning out of Ringtail. We made two more habitats in the Windy Hill area with concrete fish balls and then they were going to add Georgia cubes to existing sites. The new sites and additions will be posted soon. Thanks G & F a bunch. Neat deal!  ........Art
