No, I retired from guiding six years ago. I'm working with one of the best bass fisherman in Arizona, Matt Shura (928-488-0868), to show him my habitat patterns to help him get started guiding for crappie. He is a class act and I've know him for almost thirty years! Give him a try and you won't be sorry, ......Art

General Discussion / BPS Crappie Habitat Seminar
« on: November 15, 2018, 06:43 PM »
I will be doing a Roosevelt Crappie Habitat Seminar at Bass Pro Shop in Mesa on Wednesday, December 5th at 6:30 p.m.  It will be sponsored by Ground Game Flooring, LLC of Payson. The seminar will feature members of Az. Game & Fish department explaining how the program came together, funding, purchasing materials, and enlisting volunteers to help assemble the habitats. Also the transporting and dispersal on the lake. I will talk on how I located the best fish holding habitat and the methods of presentation that have been successful for my partners and I. The event will also be pod cast with more details on that soon. If your a crappie fisherman or fishing in general I hope to see you there. ..........Art

We were on the Tonto end from 7 until 3 searching out and waypointing new habitat. When we fished it was a lockjaw situation and we only caught 3 crappie and 2 bass. Some of the habitat was only put in place two weeks ago but is already hosting fish, Thanks to G & F the future looks bright! ......Art

Not the same. I go thru the flouro loop with the braid, pinch them together, then wrap the braid ten times around the flouro, then back thru the loop the same way I went thru the first time, wet and gently draw up. Pull hard to test and snipe tag ends. It's strong and twice as fast to tie. .......Art

I talked to Curt Gill and his guys about a half hour before we quit and they had caught a few bass but no crappie. They had no trolling motor and were trying to fish by anchoring and it wasn't working too good! ........Art

We are really in a rut, although not a bad one! We fished today from 7 until a little after 1 at which time the wind came up and the lake was white capping. Fishing three habitats, for the fourth time this month, we ended up with 26 crappie and 4 bass. Again drop-shoting and jigs both tipped with minnows in 20 to 28 feet of water. .........Art
