re: Fluorocarbon Line - rballa19
I use flourocarbon on a lot of stuff. Any moving bait except a swim jig pretty much. Never had problems with breakoffs. I use 25 pound for flipping bushes and semi heavy grass. 20 pound for chatterbaits and big Texas rigs. 15-17 for squarebills and lighter Texas rigs, 12 for crankbaits. Tie a paloma...

re: Fished table rock? - rballa19
I fished it for the first time this past October. Caught a ton of fish but size was hard to come by. I ran wayyyy up the James River and found dirty water and caught all my fish on a chatterbait, frog, and buzzbait. My buddies that stayed closer and fished the clear water caught a ton on Wiggle ...

re: What's going on with professional Bass fishing ? - rballa19
MLF has the BPT, which is their highest level. That’s where guys like KVD, Evers, Wheeler, and such are fishing. They kick off in a couple weeks. They fish the catch, weigh, release format and every fish over 2 pounds counts. They use this to qualify for the cup events, but the cups are secondary to...

I like them. They have great colors and come with good hooks, so you don’t have to change them out. I’ve caught a ton on Rayburn on their version of a one knocker trap. ...

re: Toledo Bend 2021 Official Thread - rballa19
Haven't been since November. Lake has a risen a little over a foot and half since last Thursday. Needs a little more rain to get it to where I like it. I've been spending all my spare time on Rayburn the last month because that's where our first BFL was. Finished 8th in it, but the next one is o...

re: Toledo Bend in September questions - rballa19
Honestly September is probably the toughest month of the year on Toledo. I'm not saying you can't go catch em, they just get in a funk around that time. I think they start spreading out too much between shallow and deep, and it just becomes harder to pinpoint them. Best advice, try to find lily pads...
