re: Toledo Bend updates - rballa19
Did really well last weekend on frogs and Yellow Magic popper. Caught a ton of fish and several 4-5 pounders. Just fishing down steep banks mid lake, they were choking both. Also caught a good bit on a spinnerbait where the wind was too bad for the topwaters. ETA pic [img]https://i.imgur.com/Z...

I have a BFL this weekend, and will be practicing tomorrow and Friday. A seasoned pro such as yourself shouldn't need info on what the fish are doing :cheers:...

re: Toledo this weekend - rballa19
I fished the BASS nation tourney Friday and Saturday and didn’t do very well. Only caught three keepers each day, but that was partly my fault. Lost a couple of big ones and broke one off. We couldn’t use nets and I tried to boat flip one thinking it wasn’t that big, but when it came out the water i...

re: Official 2019 Toledo Bend Thread - rballa19
Shad spawn temps are still a little ways out. I found a few reallt protected pockets that the temps got as high as 64-65 in. For the most part though, temps were staying in the 58-62 degree range. I think the full moon in a couple of days will have a big push coming up to spawn on the north end. ...

re: 2019 Bass Masters Classic - rballa19
Really wish I could make it to this one. They may set new attendance records, a lot of big names will probably never fish one again! I'm rooting for either Jordan Lee to pull off the three peat or for KVD to break his tie with Clunn. ...
