    ISA Road Trip 2018.

    Glad to see you guys made it back alive! No one was posting and I was worried you guys had nothing good to report. Good to see that was not the case. I sure hope those fish recover so us guys coming up next week have a shot at them. Apparently, the water deep enough for your boat. Any issues?

    News For Ned Riggers

    According to to one of the guys (Ned) who developed the technique, dragging them on the bottom where they can get snagged is not always the best method to fish them. Very light jigs and the very buoyant Elaztech plastic produces a very slow fall, making them almost neutrally buoyant. He likes to swim them through the water instead of hopping or dragging them. When I’m in water where snagging can be an issue, I try and keep them off the bottom. Ned rigs are such a versatile bait , they will catch fish no matter how you retrieve them. I like the weedless ‘shroomz to toss around downed trees. They only used to come in a 1/10 of an ounce size which for me is heavier than I like for other presentations, but they will come through branches pretty well.

    ISA Road Trip 2018.

    We've had some people who've had to drop out of the trip. Check the calendar in the first post on this thread, we now have 3 open spots. We can't refund any payments unless we can fill the vacancies. Let me know if you'd like to join us so we can get some money back to those who can't make it.

    I don’t know for sure. I was told by someone else that Jim Clark was dropping out but he hasn’t contacted me.

    July 28 Float- altered

    We all did. A lot of the floating algae seemed to have gotten caught in the area of the quarry and the stretch from there to the take out had much much less. Lots of better fish in that area with a good mix of grass and a little depth.

    July 28 Float- altered

    6 ISA members showed up, everybody caught fish. I don’t have an official count but 10-20 each I think is close. Bart had a 19 and Sean Leheney had an 18. Floating algae was annoying so topwaters were used. I got most of my fish on a weightless Senko. Pictures will be in the E newsletter coming out in a few days.

    July 28 Float- altered

    Lots of algae on the bottom in that area. Any baits that bump the bottom will come up with a mess but not much except a few strands of grass are floating so it should be easily fishable especially with top waters

    Pot Luck Picnic

    I wouldn't miss it. I hope everyone can make it.

We have permission to park at Currier Elementary School at the west end of their parking lot which is just east of the river over the bridge on the south side of street ( on Garys Mill Rd.-See google map) I will bring dibble bars, gloves, the plants and floating blowup boat. There will be 11 flats. We will be planting just north of the bridge. It has been predicted to rain sometime that day. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Currier+Elementary+School/@41.8567527,-88.1913795,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x29eff904e9e720a3!8m2!3d41.8567527!4d-88.1913795

With enough help, we should be done in just a few hours. If you can help, post here and let us know.
