    Pumpkinseed?

    Everything that I have seen is that the horned pout is a brown bullhead, Amerius nebulosus.

    Maybe it was the size of the lake. Back in Missouri I would catch yellow bullheads in a local lake and it also has decent channel and blue catfishing as well.

    Shell Knob 7/27 and 7/28

    Fished the Shell Knob area Saturday and Sunday. Fished from 6:00-10:00 then 12:00-4:00 or so Saturday and 6:00-10:00 Sunday. Catching was great as it seems the fish have really moved out into some of my favorite summer holes, with my favorite way to catch them. Most came on a 3" swim bait, 1/4oz head or a 3/4 oz dixie jet. Have a few on top and messed with some vertical spoon fish as well. Numbers were just amazing Saturday but the short to keeper ratio was subpar. Most of these fish came on the main lake or the mouth of coves suspended down 20'-40' overall depth didn't seem to matter but the depth of your bait is critical. Sunday morning was one of those days, found a big group of fish at the mouth of a larger cove, they would surface chasing about 2 times an hour but stayed biting below the surface. This school was a mix of Spots and some very nice LM's. Counted down the spoon or swimmer to 30ft or so and hold on, i noticed when i would cast to the edge of the schooling fish and got the bait down below them i would get better fish, if one of the smaller spots didnt grab it first. Coming down Thursday to Monday this week with a friend from up north, hope they are still biting! LD Fisher, was that you coming up the Kings both Saturday and Sunday morning? i really wanted to fish that point you were sitting on..... 😃 HAHA This post has been promoted to an article

    Did some ground cherries in pots too. Kinda cool fruit that comes in a husk like a tomatillo.

    Most of our flowers are in pots. Spikes, petunias, gladiolus, sweet potato and some others I think. Got them interspersed with herbs in pots. Oregano, marjoram, thyme, parsley, chives, dill, sage and basil.

    Neutral safety switch. The next time it fails to crank, shift it in and out of gear a few times to reset the switch.....and try it again.

    Went Checked Things Out

    Drove over to Pomme de Terre Lake and can’ t get in where I usually go because of mud but the Lake is down to where if you’re Bank Fishing can and it looked like the Ramps are open. Hunting will be interesting because most COE land was flooded so no crops. oneshot

    Ouch why the hate for roostertail on here. I love those things. I also admittedly don’t catch much but that’s not the roostertails fault. I fished Joachim creek at Herculaneum a few days ago, and the little bass were active. Throwing the same type roostertail, at the same place as me, some older dude had 50+ times that he brought little bass in in the same time frame that I brought in 3. Regardless of how I tried doing it. Made no sense.

    So do you believe that an unrealized 1.7° is enough to alter the geography of a species? If anything I'd blame it on human land use and development. I think those critters are trying to get away from the noise....but have run out of places to go.

    Fished All Around Florida Sunday.

    Hell I never see a skunk unless one gets killed on the road, and obviously the woods are loaded with them because for 2 weeks in February there will be dead ones everywhere.

    I am sure we could go back and collect it. It seemed to like the dock pretty well. It was a loner. Maybe stowed away on a boat and was trying to find his way home. I was schooled. It was a cotton mouth. And it was north of the Missouri River.

    I used to do exactly the same; had cages full of snakes caught wild in the basement. 2 4’ lengths of 1/4” rebar with a 6” “L” on one end pinned poisonous snakes down as you worked up to the head so you could grab them , make ‘em dizzy, and toss them in a gunny sack and tie it off. Had a couple get loose in the basement one time...that was interesting. I quit keeping venomous snakes after that. We had leather bootlace lasso's rigged on a broom handle because black snakes were fiesty and they'd hurt ya. We had a big "Roundup" one day in a couple of fields that were along the town branch, we filled a big Rubbermaid trash can about a foot and a half deep of assorted snakes (mostly garters, speckled Kings, blacks, and ringnecks) and then hauled the can over and dumped it out in front of a girls house that was having a birthday party. 😁 Then laid down and let them crawl all over us. We were little jackasses. Show & Tell at school was always a snake of some kind. I have some old poloroid pics somewhere of some of our snake adventures. It was actually really cool. 😊 One of the guys parents would let him keep a few at home, but the other 2 of us had to sneak them to our room occasionally, keep them hid, and we didn't dare let one get away inside the house. My mom had a real good nose for that musty captured snake smell.

    caught a few

    got to take by buddy mike sowders and a friend of his last night. catching has been kind of spotty the last two trips and last night was starting out much the same, but mike and i decided to just take a creek arm and break down everything in it. paid off in finding a group. had some really good quality. did not get a pic of the biggest one. it was a lmg in the 7 lb. range. was too big to swing with 3 in the boat, and hard to anyone to get too. mike had it in tow, but lost his balance trying to get back up, and it went back in. makes no difference because it was going back anyway, and i got all the good out of it. so, ended up with 8 keeps. one whopper brownie, one brownie in the 4 lb. class, two other brownies in the 3 lb. class, two more lmgs in the 3 lb. class, one big kentucky, and one more keeper lmg. we did have a few shorts. everything was caught on the 1 oz. Elite Mega Blade (big wobbler). they were located in the back 1/3 of the creek. still had 45 ft. in the creek channel. the area was loaded with bait. mike had not been able to catch anything on the big wobbler yet, but now sees what a great fishing tool it is. there most certainly is a learning curve to how to fish it. mike and his buddy got a great crash course. most of our bites came from 15 to 22 ft. i had one other bite in that same area that jumped my line about two feet, and when i set the hook, the line just cut into. don't know if it was a gar or a walleye. i've caught walters in that very area before. bo

    Big M area, July 30

    My first day on TR since June 20. I knew it would be a challenge to find some fish, and it was. Dragged a jig in a timbered cove first thing in the morning, had one solid bite and that was it for the jig. After that, I spent some time scoping deep water spots hoping to find some schooled fish - never really found any except for off the end of one gravel point in 30 FOW I managed to catch a couple of 13" spots on a drop shot worm. After that I decided to live or die dragging a c-rig around with a Rage Craw, that did bring me a couple of largemouth (one keeper) and a walleye. The c-rig fish were in 15-20 FOW on a flat that came out from a chunk rock bank. If I had to do it over again, I would have just thrown the c-rig and jig all morning. 6 bass total, only one keeper. Left at 1030, boat traffic was getting pretty busy and the bite, what there was of one, tailed off. This post has been promoted to an article

    The busy season.

    If your strictly wanting to fish there are quite few coves/small creek arms where the bigger boats wont be as plentiful. Think way back in roaring river, owl creek past the boat docks, rock creek, and maybe Viney cove(viney cove will be subject to large boats). There are decent smaller ramps in owl creek and several in Viney Cove on the Emerald Beach side. Use google maps to get locations. The problem with all of this is at some point your going to have to run down lake or will at some point meet or pass a pleasure craft unless you launch at owl creek and stay up past the boat docks(even then it might happen). If I was really wanting to fish a larger area you could put in at Hickory Hollow on the Kings side and fish a lot of the river. Still yet there will likely be some level of boats even up that far and the lake is much smaller up there. Unfortunately it wont be until school starts before its starts throttling down and then the weekend will still be busy. Your best bet will be launch before daylight and pull off as they start coming out.
