  1. Past hour
  2. it was on the internet, so it must be true..... was the FB post from Missouri?
  3. Today
  4. You said your casting the spoon instead of vertical fishing it. Are you throwing it out and hopping it across the bottom? Im Runnng low on slab spoons and ordered some Zinc ones tonight
  5. the lake might be on a slow down note as far as level. but, the amount of current running through the lake and the dropping water level is the major reason that the bass seem to be here today and gone tomorrow. i fished yesterday and about 3 hours this afternoon in the hurricane. wednesday, we had around 20 keepers and caught them in a different place, again. bites were still 50 to 60 with a few around 40. this afternoon, had to go looking again and found another area with some shad and bass. we ended up with 10 keepers and six of them were really nice lmgs. 1/2 and 3/4 oz. Zinc Spoons did all the catching. i did find one place with lots of shad, but no evidence of bass around. found two other places with both shad and bass. there are not any secret places, you just have to put in the time to go looking. however, with that said, even when you find them, you have to work at getting them to bite. i talked to a couple of boats this afternoon that were fishing shallow on windy banks, but had not had much luck. if i were to try shallow fishing, i would probably give the eagle rock area a shot or way up the kings or james. i have not looked at these areas, but because of lack of water depth and cooler water temps, if there is any bait left in the area, there would be a better chance for it to be fairly shallow. there will definitely come a time that the deeper shad will bust up and come up near the surface. when that happens, a better percentage of the bass population will follow and i will be fishing up in the zone. i still like jerk bait fishing. for those that like to venture to other lakes, if the water clarity on grand is decent, there is a lake with a great winter jerk bait bite. i have a younger buddy that lives over by anderson that is busy getting things rolling with his new place of employment, and is in the middle of house building to boot. he says that he is going to be ready to start fishing very soon. maybe i will go over and we will go see what is going on on grand sometime this winter. but, there is still a bunch of catching here on the rock. bo

    Time to Plan Thanksgiving!

    Picking up Turkey tomorrow, and always brine. Head count is around 25. One Vegan, so 24. I do the Turkey, dressing, and gravy every year, others bring the sides so it is stinking easy. I do use some of the offal, and the neck to make stock for the gravy. Chopped offal and neck meat go in the dressing. Gizzard & heart are the bits to use. I fry the liver and share it with the dog. Too strong for the dressing or gravy.
  9. Another option for the 3.8” is the G-Money swimbait head. 3 for $3.99
  10. Nice variety! Really nice walleye. I would guess that the spots were released in lake crisco😀.
  11. I’ve seen two bobcats in the past 40 years. Would probably see more if I had the patience to sit in a tree, deer gaze, and let them pass.
  12. Yep, bull hockey. He shot the cat just because and needed a cover story, or just felt like spinning up an interesting tale. I've only seen a few of them, all just glimpses. I don't blame them for being elusive since every knucklehead with a gun will shoot them just to say they did.

    I really don't recall the crappie LL being 8" but I was in north MO for several years, so maybe I just missed out on that. However, I do remember when MDC installed the first 12" LL for black bass at Stockton. I also remember a lot of bass anglers who opposed that regulation, most saying that it would ultimately ruin the bass fishing on STK lake! (And, that was one of the first length Limit regulations in the country at that time.) As the lake aged and densities decreased from the initial reproductive "Boom" years the LL was increased to 15" to maintain optimal densities and growth rates. It was such a success that now nearly all states have Length Limits for black bass. MDC was a leader in fisheries management at that time. As for the life expectancy for Crappie, If I my old memory serves me correctly, the oldest crappie that we ever aged from STK was 7 yrs. But very, very few make it to that age. We always thought that most end up in hot oil by age 5. Hope this helps!

    I think the technique is pretty important—big reason I posted it. The boil gets things dissolved and the flavors developed. Needs to be cold when you brine the turkey.

    Time to Plan Thanksgiving!

    My brine? Fill a 5 gallon bucket or other vessel half full with ice and water. Add around 2 - 3 cups of industrial grade maple syrup. Add enough kosher salt (1 cup +) to taste like seawater. Throw in a small handful of peppercorns. Add three bay leaves and 12 to 16 sprigs of thyme. Add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper. Let sit overnight.

    This also is a great brine and one I have used.
  17. I think not. I surprised one when I was a kid. He was working on a fresh rabbit that he had just killed. He dropped that rabbit and took off. They aren’t anything like a mountain lion.
  18. New in the box Sonic hub 2 with two 6 1/2" speakers sells for $326.00 on Lowrance website. Asking $275.00. located at Pomme De Terre lake Call or text 660-679-1417 Scott
  19. Thank you, wow, they are proud of those $7 for 3 of them

    What's Cooking?

    Best Turkey Breast I have ever cooked. Walmart bacon wrapped half turkey breast, pkg Lipton onion soup, pkg frozen seasoning mix(onions, celery, peppers), cup chicken broth. Instant pot for 30 minutes high, 20 minutes bleed off. Mashed taters and green beans with cream cheese. That turkey is moist and melts in the mouth, buttery smooth and flavorful. Melts in the mouth is a plus since the radiation and 2 cancer surgeries took most of the salivary glands. But I still have some taste buds. Happy 4TH year for me!! Cancer + 4 for me....

  22. Maybe it was this guy... Same M. O. Looks like same buck and bobcat Wierd Freak in KY Found
  23. But they wilt pretty fast in a choker noose. Thin windpipe.
  24. To quote another forum member “fake news”. Mike
  25. My cousin saw a bobcat try to take down a young of the year deer one time during deer season. The bobcat lost. It all.... They are alpha predators and can grow pretty good size like the one in the pic. Hunters have been attacked in the woods while turkey hunting by them. Personally, the only ones I have seen were pretty elusive. And smaller than that one. And, I have been hunting a long time and never gut a deer in the field. I just go get the tractor or 4 wheeler and take it to the house to a nice clean processing area. Field dressing is for public hunting. But the time from field to knife is usually less than 30 minutes. Guts can stay in that long. Hang them high, gut them clean, skin if warn and not getting cold quick, or quarter and put in refrigerator if warm weather. Nice thing about a farm. And telecheck. Back in the old days, had to load them back up, drag them to town and check, then take back to farm to process or hang. So much simplier now. And better on the meat.
  26. http://www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil/pages/mcharts.htm That page lets you select lake, month, and year(It seems to not be working for me right now but has in the past). Gives a lot of information, inflow, outflow, rainfall (@ dam and overall basin), volumes basically overall and on a daily basis. Pretty cool tool to check historical information out.
