No problem at all. Been fishing all over the place, letting the weather dictate where I go. Fish are everywhere right now.

Sort of...I'm back about every 2 weeks, just haven't had time to fish much when I'm back.
I am planning on fishing the nearby dam spillways for stripers, wipers and walleyes, locals tell me they'll be running about Feb. 1st. - thru March for the spring spawn. By then the ice will have melted off the lakes.

I threw a Sammy on Guntersville during a big bass challenge event a couple years ago after reading some opinions on it; it had an interesting action but it wasn't what I was used to and since the fishing was slow that weekend, I struggled to keep confidence in it. I still have a couple in my box, guess maybe I need to give them another go.

After my only Bonnie bit the dust (I wore it out), I picked up a KVD sexy dawg and have done decently well with it. It doesn't have quite the action the Bonnie did, but it's served me well and it's easy to find.

Once again, thanks for your posts and input. Maybe our schedules will align one day.

Bruce - I'm usually limited to weekend days, but if you're in town and you want to get out for a few hours fire me a text and I'd be happy to take some of the work out of it for you and get you on the water. You've been a big help to me even before I moved here, and I'd love to be able to return the favor any time. You have my number.

Just got some of the Rhythm Wave Jackalls . Opened up one of the packs and the swimbait smells like fresh cooked plastic. That normal?

I'll let em air out outside the house! Was wondering if the smell really started when I pierced it for the line thru.
