    No info on Piedmont,just wanted to welcome you to the site. Glad you found your way here !!! THE CATKING :)

  3. I fish Piedmont alot. Mostly bass except spring and fall i like to go for eyes too. I have been doing good on bass at the shallow end. I like top water early and late in the day. Tubes are my favorite if buzz baits are not working. I do good also on u-tail june bug worms. Smallies are still doing good at the damn. I use a white gitzit tubes and let it fall. It works good when they are hanging under the shad and schooling them up for a hit. You have to have a topwater in your hand and drop it right in the middle of them crashing into the shad or they won't hit you. Spring and fall I like to troll hot n tots slow for eyes. Good luck.
  4. Thanks CATKING.Were some of you part of GOFISHOHIO?A co-worker told me about this site.I don't think he's a member but he reads it.So if he does read this I'll just call him a "PICKLERHOOKER" :) then he will know who I am. :p

    I fish Piedmont 90% of the time.Melon color tubes and spinnerbaits{1/8..1/2} are the only lures I'm catching fish on right now.I haven't hit the dam yet this year.I too fish the shallows with topwater but a big ZERO so far this year.YA CAN'T BEAT TOPWATER FISHING :D

    Did anyone see Chet Snezek 50" lives right by me so I have a pic of it. As soon as figure out how to get it on here I will post it.

    I know Chet well. I used to be good friends with his daughter back in the 80's.
    Just saw the picture of his musky in the Muskies Inc magazine. WHAT A BEAST !!!
    I grew up in the Ferry area.
    I wouldn't be surprised if we knew each other :D
  7. I have to boxs of spinner baits. I lost confidence in them the last few years. I don't know why. I just don't throw them enongh. I talked to someone out on the lake last week that was using a spinner and he said he got three nice ones. I'm going to try harder with them. My tube colors are watermellon seed and pumpkin. What spinner blades and colors should I go back to?
    80% of my spinnersbaits have white/char.
    One 1/2 oz has a NO.5 1/2oz. has a double willow no.5+no.3
    1/8 oz has a no.3 or no.4......I think no.4 :confused:
    I caught a 23.5 Muskie on the 1/8 oz. over top weed beds.Sometimes I rip it across and sometimes I let it drop to the bottom and bring it up FAST. I'm going out early tomorrow.
