re: Weekend Results 2/17 - 2/19 - rballa19
Fished a little benefit tourney yesterday with my dad at Toledo. Had a hair under 14 pounds. Caught a 5.6 on about my 5th cast but never caught any other size to go with it. Most of the fish came off stumps in 3-5 feet on Senkos. ...

re: Toledo Bend 10 day trip coming up. - rballa19
Just talked to my dad, he's fishing a club tourney today. Said he had about 19-20 pounds, every fish on a senko up at Blue Lake. Were fishing another tourney tomorrow and are going up there. He already left to go fish at Lanan cause that's where they weigh in at. ...

[quote]I'll be texting you while I'm there. Let you what we are doing. [/quote] I was thinking on my last trip that it was weird I hadn't heard from you yet this year. I guess it seems later than the second week of February with all this warm weather, though. Good luck, my dad and I will be there...

re: Toledo Bend 10 day trip coming up. - rballa19
If you get wayyy back in the pockets you can find some really shallow grass up north. And by really shallow I mean a foot of water or less. It has held bass, though, we caught quite a few out of it the last couple of weeks. All were males. As far as hydrilla, milfoil, and hay grass, Housen and S...

re: Anyone running a Phoenix Bass Boat? - rballa19
Don't have one, but I've decided when I'm ready to get a new boat it will be a Phoenix. It'll either be the 721 or 920. Those things a badass!...

re: Duckett Triad Rods - rballa19
I have two micro magics and 5 ghosts, and you can definitely tell the difference in quality between the two. I've had problems with the eyes coming out on the ones I've had for a few years. I've only broken one, though. I use one for my frog rod, with 65 pound braid and jerkin the shite out of em and...

re: Petition to make all tidal waters open to public - rballa19
[quote]Not sure what exactly you mean, but think of it this way. Currently, these waters are privately owned. If those waters are made public, there has been a taking of property simply because people want to fish. That might be the most selfish thing I've ever heard of.[/quote] It's not selfish,...

Only grass I've seen has been in Housen and Six Mile. We usually fish white perch at night, hanging lanterns on stumps and then fishing under them. ...

re: Toledo bend report - rballa19
[quote]I find the speed craw to have a higher hook-up ratio since there is less plastic in the way. They're lighter though so you don't get the casting distance like with a horny-toad.[/quote] I put a 1/16 ounce weight on sometimes, it's not a lot but it helps with casting and doesn't really drag...

re: Toledo bend report - rballa19
My dad has been up there since Friday. He caught a good bit up north Friday and Saturday, including a couple of six pounders. Most fish on senkos and squarebills. He went to Six Mile Sunday and Monday, and caught 10 Sunday on a Carolina rig in 10-17 foot of water. Lost a 7-8 on a rattle trap in ...
