Thuggin4Life said:always plan on an extra 30-50 minutes if launching a boat at ballangers. between the tweeker biatch and the guy i dont know who talks more. guess that guys dad dug the pits so he knows the depth everywhere and said he brought the bass over from the wildish ponds and planted them in ballenger since the wildish bass were the healthiest out of the study the did. and he help plant bass at dorena had something to do with mercury levels. also he has told me about the otters and how he has been trying to remove them and "relocate them". one time he let me borrow a lure he made out of a hook and flat piece of gold metal thatwas some kind of pipe or hose clamp for a water heater. you realed it in a bit and the stopped and it would slowly flutter side to side as it drifted down and backwards. with a worm on the hook it killed bluegill quite well. seems like that gut can tell a good story. i ggave up on ballenger this year but sounds like it is slightly producing for the rest of you. maybe i will have to rethink my stradegy and try next year.
That guy does seem to be full of info . Think the fish are there just heavily pressured beautiful water still.
