Good Day on the Hill today-Started out with a nice  DT6 Red Craw and Deon bite-They would nail it. (Better get you some) After the Crankbait bite went away I caught the remained on a VMC Weedless Finesse Jig and soft plastics. Sufix 6lb mono on the crankbaits and 10lb Sufix 832 Braid with a 6lb VMC Fluorocarbon leader.  46 degree water and good color. Get out your snow shovel it sound like we are going to need it Sunday Morning. Rick McFerin

Ronnie and I fished from 7:00am until 11:30am without bite one! Nothing-zero-nada-goose egg! They were pulling the water hard enough that it would continually pull your boat out and down stream. The generation stopped and from 11:30am until 12:30 we had 7 bites-5 in the boat (4 like the bottom pic) and one pushing 4. Ronnie needed to go so we loaded the boat and headed home. Everything on a VMC Finesse Weedless Jig and soft plastics . I believe that I  found a pattern if could have stayed-or at least I’ like to believe that. More the end of the week. Rick

Ronnie and I fished from 6:30 until 11:15 and had  11 Spot/Largemouth mix. I fished an additional hour and had the 2 that you see me holding above. We caught a couple early on a DT6 Red Craw then switched over to a VMC Finesse Weedless Jig and soft plastics and caught the rest. Ronnie was using *8b Sufix Mono and I was using Sufix 10lb Braid and a 6lb Sufix Fluorocarbon leader The bite was extremely light , most of the time you didn’t see a twitch-slack line nothing-just a subtle heaviness.  Thanks for visiting my site.

Normandy 1-2-2019


Best of 11 that Ronnie and I had on Normandy this morning on a Rapala DT6 Red Craw . LOT’S of color and differing water temps as high as 54 degrees and as low as 48 degrees. I got Ronnie to try Sufix 6lb mono several years ago and he is a walking commercial for how great the line is. If you haven’t tried it pick some up and you will be hooked to.  Rick McFerrin

I have been trying to get all my pictures to load for over an hour and have just gave up.

Ronnie and I caught 17 today on Normandy on a Rapala DT6 Red Craw. We had 10 off 1 bank and the others were scattered. Water temp 44 to 46 with  great cranking color. We  both used  Sufix 6lb mono on these DT6’s-Slow and easy and very shallow. Rick McFerrin

Here are 6 pictures that I have been holding back because of a tournament that Bill and Braxton fished this pass week end. Bill is holding 4 that we  (he) caught (I was a good net guy) on a Float N Fly and the other 2  pics are of  Braxton on tournament day. Their club has a 3 fish limit which is great and these 3 Smallmouth won them 2nd place and a good payday in their club fish off.  Billy and I also had several smaller Smallmouth on soft plastics. Once again I was using a VMC Weedless Finesse Jig on Sufix Yellow Braid with a Sufix Fluorocarbon leader. Headed to Center Hill to fish with Billy this morning and the actual air temp here at 4:38am is 22 degrees. Burrrrr! Rick McFerrin

Everything except 2 on a VMC Finesse Weedless Jig and soft plastics the other on w Rapala River Shad DT6 Sufix Braid and Fluorocarbon leader. . Water temp 56 degrees and good color. Some stuff floating  because of the rain that we have had lately. Thanks for visiting my site. Rick McFerrin

W/O 11-5-2018 Tim’s & CenterHill

This is a 2 day report. The gentleman that is holding the Smallmouth is Robert Markham-2 years ago he had a heart transplant and now he is doing great. Robert gives all the glory to God for his recovery-and that’s where it all belongs. We caught either 7 or 8 with the 3 being our best. The pictures on the floor was from yesterday on Center Hill. My camera wouldn’t work and I don’t like taking pictures this way but there wasn’t another option. I took a few and skipped the rest. Everything we caught on Tim’s was on soft plastics. I caught 3 yesterday on a Rapala Skitter Walk  and 6 others on soft plastics rigged on a VMC Weedless Finesse  Jig head. I lost 2 other heavy fish that I never saw.  I also caught a 6 or 8 5 to 6 inch Smallmouth-there is a ton of them in Center Hill-good for years to come.   Sorry for the pics-In a new camera hunt today.
