    My bro in law and I did a little fishing in Yellville, AR the last couple days. We caught 62 small mouth and 2 rock bass over 2 days. The first day was slow and we only caught 16. The second day we caught 46 smalls and 2 rocks. I caught a 16.5" and a 16.75". We had an absolute blast!

    We were using jigs, Carolina rigs with craws and yum dinger worms, and an occasional roostertail to see if it would work. I caught the 16.5 on a black roostertail. I never catch big ones on roostertails.

    We don't keep any of them. We like to let them go so the next guys have a chance at catching a big one. I prefer to eat walleye and crappie.[​IMG][​IMG]

    1/8 oz chartreuse roostertail was my go to lure when I lived in TN. I never used plastic worms until I lived in FL, and now I pretty only much use plastic worms.

    That looks like some awesome fun. Wish I was there instead of where I'm at now. Although.....if I get a chance I could go peacock bass fishing. Doesn't look good for a day off though.

    Looks like fun! I think that's a different chest rig than I've seen you wear.......

    Haha. The fly fishing "chest rig" helps a lot when wading in water. It keeps me from having to wade back to kayak everytime I get snagged on a rock or tree

    Yeah, but you can't carry many mags in it.
