Re: Dobyns 733 breaking

My Fury 733 broke on the first cast. I'm guessing something happened during the shipping.

I sent it back, waiting to hear from them.

They're a great company, I'm sure they'll make it right.

The red gums lead me to believe that they are munching on craws. Pretty much a staple pattern on the D pre spawn.

Re: Delta Advise?

The full moon shut the bite down significantly from last week. There are definitely fish spawning and on beds.

Last week I had 26lbs, yesterday, 13lbs. All of those were guarding males, no bigger females.

It was 50/50 reaction bite and wacky rigged plastics.

Best summer month for clear lake?...

I am planning a trip to clear lake this summer for my "bachelor party." No partying involved, but I would like to time it with a good top water bite.

Which month would you historically say would be best for frogging/topwater? June, July or August?

There is a few areas with grass/primrose to flip/punch.
