re: Toledo Bend 10 day trip coming up. - TaserTiger
[quote]35 pounds with 5 fish is BassMasters status. They must have been site fishing and taking big females off the nest.[/quote] Yes. What I was thinking, what I posted and still what I recommend. Fish 1'-5' grass or non-grass shoreline however you want and wherever you think you can land big ...

re: Toledo Bend 10 day trip coming up. - TaserTiger
[quote]I fished braid 2 seasons and consistantly caught less fish.[/quote] Very fair assessment. That's what I would do. Make up my own mind about methods, materials, baits, etc. Sounds like you have done that. It was just a suggestion to be sure you have that "tool" in your arsenal. Brai...

re: Toledo Bend 10 day trip coming up. - TaserTiger
[quote]It's a challenge between you, the fish and 12 lb test. [/quote] I totally agree. It's a war. I have lost large fish when my line broke on several occasions. Toledo Bend is not a "clear water" reservoir. Try 6/30 braid or equiv. (6# equiv. mono diam., 30 lb. test) instead of 12 lb. ...

[quote]Can't imagine spending any vacation and not be on the lake. As long as work is good, I'll be on the lake. We night fish half the time. [/quote] Weather will be getting warmer shortly. Consider renting a tent space at any of the places available that provide that option where you like to ...

re: Gymnastics: LSU 197.475, Kentucky 195.725 | Final | Tigers Win!!! - TaserTiger
Great job, Lady Tigers. I am so impressed with this years team. I will follow every meet. Why doesn't SECTV cover more of #1 or #2 rated LSU women's gymnastics? Yeah, I get WatchESPN via Roku via Hughesnet - too slow to stream live or replay. Why not more LSU coverage on ESPN or SECTV? ...

re: MSN's comment on Guice trucking kicker - TaserTiger
Of course the smaller kicker was totally overmatched. Props to Guice. Magnificent hit and leveling by Guice of that smaller kicker with his 20 mph + speed down the sideline. Guice looked super good on that return. The smaller kicker, however, forced Guice out of bounds on the return. He did...

re: 21 ft Bass Boat with 350 HP? WTF - TaserTiger
[quote]Is it really necessary to go 100 mph in a bass boat?[/quote] No, it's not necessary. For some people like me - Yes, because we desire it. Why? Well, "because we can". In about 1971 I had a Challenger 15' bass boat (similar to an Allison) with 150 Merc. Would do about 62 mph trim...

re: Bass Fishing - Suggest a brand/type of plastic lizard - TaserTiger
Many great ideas from the board. Here's a thought. Pour your large lizards yourself (or have a friend, etc. pour them for you). You need a large lizard [u]open[/u] pour mold (to keep it simple and avoid getting more complicated with injection molding). You also need a quart or gallon of l...

OK, Mr. 23-21... That was my original thought. I waited too long to post my thought. My bad. Congratulations to you. Seriously... OK, Mr. Delahoussaye 3/3, I will go you one better with 4/4 just so I can say I am staying original with my prognostication. Geaux, Mr. Delahoussaye. B...

re: I won't miss Miles or think fondly of him - TaserTiger
My take: he did the best he could. Thought he should have been replaced long ago. LSU will move on. I know this is not the music board, but I have enjoyed LSU football for over 60 years (over 70 years old now) and I thought of this song to epitomize recent Auburn, Miles, Alleva et. al. e...

re: Humming birds in Shreveport - TaserTiger

re: Schooling bass on Toledo Bend - TaserTiger
Addendum - Reason for moderate retrieve of sinking lipless 1/2 oz. chrome/black back baits resulting in retrieve at about 5' depth is because many of the larger bass in any school are "lazy" and prefer to pick off (gorge) on wounded shad that the youngsters at the surface have failed to swallow ...

re: Hummingbird Swarm - TaserTiger
Hi - I love hummingbirds. I feel the best way I can contribute to this excellent thread is to link a similar hummer thread earlier this year from late April - late July: http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/outdoor/hummingbirds-hummingbird-feeders/63086125/ Simply amazing birds. I know ...

re: Schooling bass on Toledo Bend - TaserTiger
Sorry - late to the party. You have tried Rattle-Trap? Something doesn't add up. When bass hit the surface and boil the water quickly get within at least 75' of them. Cast to the other side of the action with a 1/2 oz. chrome/black back Rattle-Trap or Spot. Reel at moderate speed through...

re: Gilmour or Waters? - TaserTiger
Gilmour. No question in my mind. I have never seen/heard anyone play steel guitar as skillfully as he can. He makes his steel guitar seductively "whine" through the octaves in a way that completely captivates and spell bounds the audience. Practically a trademark sound in many of Pink Floyd'...
