Sure hope folks are releasing those 7,8 and 9 lbers....even though they are not part of the lunker-replica program. There are thousands of people on that lake every day now...sure would not like to see them kill the goose with the golden egg.

Admiral, I think I can keep 10.
On a weekend trip means 20.
I can load the ice chest!!

I went to the Bend a few years back with a bass aficionado. Spent the weekend at the state park cabins. His truck, his boat, his fishing spots. I had to buy all new tackle because I quit bass fishing long ago. Stupid fish that's easy to catch. So at our first stop I use a 10 inch curly tail worm June bug color and start wailing on the bass. Catching 3 to my podnahs 1. He finally broke and asked quietly if I had some more. After I gave him one I was still out catching him.
At lunch we load the trailer and instead of eating he drives to this gas station/bait shop and talks to a guide there that convinces him he needs this $9 spinner bait. We get to the vehicle and I grab my tackle and take out a copy of the spinner bait he bought but I paid $0.98 out of a can't sell bin. He said his was better tuned. Uh huh.
I caught 5 to his 1. I told him mine must be really out of tune to get so much attention from these stupid fish.
Needless to say, I never got invited to go back to the Bend. He did catch his personal best bass at over 8 pounds that weekend. I had one larger that I broke off at the side of the boat. I just couldn't hurt my podnahs feelings by beating him with a larger fish. I wailed on him enough. Getting soft in my old age, not as vicious as I used to be. A mutual friend did tell me he was joking about my success with a 98 cent bait. We still fish salt water together.

Didn't think anyone would mind if I tooted my own horn.
True story though. I may have paid $1.98 for that spinner bait, if that helps any.
Anyhow, I'm always willing to help the lesser of us that needs it!

;-)

I wonder if Zebco would sponsor me with all those 88s I use.

Re: Toledo bend
Vicious, in your original story, you said you paid $0.98 for the spinnerbait. Then, you claim you paid $1.98 for the spinnerbait. That is part of your problem, you cannot keep your stories straight. Try to toot your horn less, and pay more attention to your story.... I am here to help....

Re: Toledo bend
No claim there. I said 'I may have paid $1.98'. I was really trying to help ease your pain. I can feel it man!!

Don't be to eager to dis me. I gave Bill Dance some tips he still uses and I was just joking when I told Roland Martin to hold them 3 pounders close to the camera and tell everyone that they weigh 7.

Love, peace and fish fry grease!

Ah, thanks fish_finder.
I am going to look up the rules/laws before I go and make a slaughter.
Speaking of slaughter, did I tell y'all about the cane pole I cut myself back of Little Gypsy power plant? I sight fished bass in the BC Spillway with that thing. Called it my slaughter pole I caught so many with it.
