Well guys, down here in the South(Alabama), conditions aren't perfect but at least we haven't had any white stuff. Temps are ok(mid to high 50's) but the wind has been a bummer. Makes it feel like the 30's
and difficulty positioning the boat for any length of time. Went a couple of times last week and manage a few keepers, nothing picture worthy yet :'(
The smallmouth fishing has been spectacular on Pickwick Lake. The winning string( 5 fish) on a tournament last weekend weighed in at over 31 lbs!.(all smallmouth!) 2nd place was 29lbs plus.
Trouble is, the area where these were caught, is so popular, you almost have to take a number and get in line to fish it :)
Oh well, maybe next week it will settle down a bit where we can sneak in there and get our share..

I just got some Power Pro Maxcuatro Braid to try this year.
I got it in 20lb test Yellow.
.007inch  .19MM so very small (25% smaller)and super strong for being 20lb test. Size of 4lb Mono and 12lb of other braids.
Gonna use it for my Basic Bass fishing. I put it on my Shimano Stradic Ci4+2500HGFB reel.
Should cast like a rocket.
I'll let you guys know how I like it.

We have been cloudy, windy, cold, and misty all day long.  However, tomorrow, Thursday and Friday are supposed to be really nice.  Can't come soon enough for me.  I've had a lousy winter of health and fishing.  I'm ready to be healed and on the water at least a couple of times per week.
I hear you falconrod.  I'm not knocking drop shot, it just did not work for me.  I gave it over a year.  Float n Fly did not work for me either.  I also have very limited success with wacky unless the water is high so I can use it around the bushes.

If I could catch fish on it like Ed does I'd do it all the time.
Jigman...the best fish I ever caught on the dropshot whacky rig was when a friend pulled up along side me after my cast.  We BS'd a bit and my line "took off".  It was great 'cuz I set the hook while my buddy was 5' away in his boat.  I acted like it happened all the time. 
Hahahah with you there  Jigman. BUT  Ed I will give it  a  try  as a  wacky rig and  thanks  for reply.
