    And to stay on-topic... I dig topwater in the morning (buzzbaits and Rebel Pop-Rs are my faves)... followed by a black/blue Strike King jig with a blue/metal flake trailer OR an 8-inch purple/metalflake Culprit worm for farm pond bass.

    I always carry a few spinnerbaits and Rattle Traps in Tennessee Shad or red crawfish for backup, and the ultra-shallow crankbaits from Bandit and Manns are the ticket when nothing else seems to draw a strike.

    My ultimate shallow crankbait is BY FAR the Bagley Balsa B II. I've crushed the competition in tournaments on it numerous times and not many people throw it. Favorite spinnerbait would be a Zone (now custom made) 4 bladed spinnerbait

    I've never heard of the Zone... is it new?

    I like Bagley's as well... I have a favorite in Tennesee Shad that goes to about 6 feet with a wobble you feel clear down to your feet. It's the only one I have, and only appears when nothing else seems to work. Those things are worth the extra protection.

    Zone is about like Hildebrandt. They are spinnerbaits from the past but they only make custom ones now from what I understand. I have them made by the man I know at Zone as well as people from the Fishing Expo here in Raleigh every year. I throw alot of bandit crankbaits but I throw Bomber the most, from model A's to Fat A's to Deep Diving Fat Free Shads fish EAT BOMBER

    Custom equals expensive... too rich for me. :rant:

    I agree about the Bombers... there are a few lakes around here with good populations of bass where the bait of choice right off the ramp is a Bomber A or a Bandit down to about 12 feet. Firetiger and Firecraw never seem to be a bad choice.

    Well... there you are... Why didn't you come to KC and say hello, you redneck. The coyote hunters were out in force and the camo was a popular stop.

    You ready for hunting season out your way?

    Blue back, Chartreuse sides are BAR NONE the best color of Rapala, Bomber, Bandit, Strike King, Manns, Bagleys, etc. especially these lakes around here where shallow timber is the best bite late in the summer.

    Holy crap... I must have dropped out of the loop. What the hell happened? That sucks on an epic scale!

    You didn't miss much... the whole place sounded like a dog pound on acid for three days with every call vendor trying to out-call the other. JEEEEZ if I never hear another coyote howl for a few months I'll be grateful!

    I hope you get better, dude... nothing heals like the woods and getting back to nature. Keep me posted on the recovery. I'll tip a few back and say a few words to the Great Spirit for you.

    basically, its an old injury that finally gave way. i havent been to work in a little over a month, and going to be out a bit longer(doctors are really slow). basically, i got a ruptured disc in mu upper back/neck, and spinal stenosis to go with it. it hurts like hell......but i do as i always do brotha....deal with it. then, my dad dying a few weeks back hasnt helped the situation either, so we are just managing i reckon. i'll definitely keep you posted on the recovery and all man. gotta get in the woods........hell, thats my relaxation!!

    Wow. I had no idea.

    I just did a search on spinal stenosis... my sincere prayers for a full recovery, my friend. I know you'll come through with guns blazing... you have too much attitude to be put down by this. Don't let the bastard get you down.

    My condolences on the loss of your father. I wish I had words that would console that, but I'm sure that whatever I say here would fall short. I haven't had that experience yet, but as years pile on I realize the mortality of those I hold dear. Hold his memory close.

    Hang in there, brother. I'll be looking for news here and I'll keep a few words between me and the greater powers for you and yours.

    I agree... a worthy tribute indeed, and I'm sure he'd be honored.

    It's good that he had a son who would do such things for him. You just went up a few notches in my book, and I'm looking forward to meeting you some day.

    Hang tough, bro.
