Me too - especially when it's me. :D
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

Pop's got his mojo.

I'd love me some maple bass, with some hotcakes and a little bacon on the side.

Nice! Production at Maple has slowed down for me big time. I rely heavily on senkos and they're just not giving me anything right now. looks like you guys are still crankin em out though good job

Senkos usually produce well east side when the hydrela grows and bass spawn/post spawn. Also there are some weeds left on the southern shore and eastern shore as of now after the weed kil and you may have some good luck with senkos. I personally throw lipless cranks early on the season and chatter baits. As summer progresses I'll throw big black blue jigs and 1oz chatter baits with a high profile trailer. Concentrate on the deepest water next to shallow ledges. Fall approaches I switch back to spring patterns. Also they allow trolling motors now on rentals as I've seen over the weekend. On the other hand you can try and sneak your own watercraft in there if you own one.
