    I know, right?. You’d think with all the cameras they have everywhere to catch illegal urinating and drinking that they could catch some of these people🙄.

    Ned, with or without weed guard?

    I used to use only the ones that had a weed guard. Then I accidently bought a bunch without a weed guard. Now I only use those. (until they are gone anyways)

    Bummer Being Poor

    I can hook you up with some part time work if you need a little cash. My wife has a list that you can take your pick from, and then there are boats that need cleaning, brush that needs clearing, a few wheel bearing jobs that I'm sure you can handle, ect. None of it is overly strenuous.

    9.15 plus tax to be exact. Your's looks like separate start and run capacitors so maybe that's why it was so high. No wait. I spent enough dollars and time studying electronic design in college to know that you got hosed. $300 might be the going price and be the same that everyone is paying for that particular cap but come on. Have you seen the insides? It's not rocket science. Maybe you unit was designed by Mercury!!

    Ned, with or without weed guard?

    I use the one's I make w/ a guard. They have the fine fiber guard with a few pieces trimmed to size and the others have a do-it wire guard. With Bull Shoals as high as it is we've been fishing these heads deep in the brush . Might lose 2 or 3 a day at the most. The EC lil nasty hooks on them have yet to let a fish throw the hook. Every one that gets stuck w/ that sickle hook gets in the boat. The jig is also flat on the bottom and oval shaped like a mojo weight which keeps it from hanging in the rocks and helps the bait climb over and through wood. Don't use super glue either. The bend in the hook keeps the worm in position most of the time. Currently sold out, but will be making some more.

    $10 ? I got reamed! Had to replace a capacitor 2 years ago and that SOB was 300 and change. Someone with HVAC knowledge please tell me if I got hosed. 😥

    I've used both and really didn't notice a difference in snagging up, but I typically only use them in the winter on fairly clean bottoms.

    Well then maybe that's what they were busy doing while those dirty rotten scoundrels were powerbaiting zone 1.

    Anything new going on up there?

    Anyone been there recently. I didn't make it up there at all last year, but am hoping to this year at some point.

    Crappie Fishing

    I'm no expert on Pomme or Truman, but Ranger and Oneshot have never steered me wrong over the past two years. They know their stuff and have helped put me and the family on fish every time we come over from CO spring, summer and fall. I've tried both standing timber and brush piles on Pomme, have done good on both, but tend to do better on brush piles (when I can find them, really need a finder that isn't as old as I am) especially in the summer when we come over for the 4th of July Turman Lake is a crappie factory for sure!!! Like oneshot said, lots and lots and lots of good structure. Haven't spent as much time on Truman in a boat, and when I have it has mainly been around the Fair Field area, but always seems to find some fish. The docks below the dam are one of my family's favorite spots. Fishing is almost always good enough to keep 3x 11 year olds and a 13 year old interested and fishing and will often light on fire where I don't even get to fish cause I'm unhooking and re-baiting everyone else. One piece of advice on the docks, it can get crowded at times. We normally try to get there around 2-3pm, a little ahead of the evening rush, so we can claim our spots. But even when it's crowded, everyone is really nice and all seem more then happy to try and make some room. Also a decent place to throw out a line or two for catfish, while you crappie fishing. Picked up several 3-7lb cats off those docks. Have never tried the actual "river" below the dam, but I've heard good things.

    Secret trout water

    Lucky! Wish I had trout water by my house, but might not be good for the marriage... Ponds I can walk to are bad enough... Nice job man! Hope you get another shot at that big one.

    Decent brown 5/23

    I made a quick trip to the Cotter walk-in access this morning and lucked into this guy. He was 23" and put up quite a fight, He took me down to the backing twice and made 4 nice jumps.

    Bait Fishing in Zone 1

    No. But yeah it actually would work. But again no. I'm not asking anyone to do anything. But you can't come on here acting like a child unless you are willing to do something. Anything. The MDC doesn't want you to confront them either. That's why they gave us a number. Takes what? A few minutes? Tell them what you know and see if they respond. If they don't then you can start complaining. This is exactly what is wrong with our country today. Everyone complains about all the problems but nobody is doing anything to make it better. And it is a trout park so what really do you expect?? I mean it's kind of like whining about somebody eating a donut that you were going to throw in the trash.

    "I’ve called a few times in the past too. Montauk and Bennett. But, if I took it upon myself to police all the regulations I’d spend most of my day on the phone." That's why I was cracking up when I read the original post.

    Bait Fishing in Zone 1

    I’ve called a few times in the past too. Montauk and Bennett. But, if I took it upon myself to police all the regulations I’d spend most of my day on the phone. Its obvious that the agents don’t really give a crap. Otherwise there’d be someone there every weekend. And they’d be busy writing tickets. So the solution in your mind is for the people to police the people?? Yeah, that’ll work.

    bull. When smalliebigs saw something happening on a smallmouth stream he called the number and ACTUALLY did something about it. Not your job? If you aren't part of the solution then you are part of the problem.

    And nice build on that popper. I had it stuck in brush behind me. Banged off some concrete. Landed 9 fish. drug it through some gravel. Still looks like it did. I don't even think it lost a leg!

    Would be a good song to fish a popper or a jerkbait too.
