    question

    Last warning... This site isn't like others where there's no rules against pretty much anything. We've said we want a place where kids can go and read about fishing - where they don't have to wade through cussing and lewd remarks. We usually don't allow politics or religion discussions either but this hasn't gotten out of hand... and I for one have learned a few things. But as I give an inch - some have taken a mile. Don't ruin it.

    What's Cooking?

    Having a retirement party for a good friend at work, spend tonight making a double batch of Jambalaya, always good always popular. Meats include a pound of spicy pork sausage, a pound of polish sausage, a package of chicken thighs diced up, 4 cans of oysters. Tomorrow will get more chicken stock to offset the amount the rice soaks up, 3 bags of shrimp, and a large pa kage of imitation crab meat. (I love that stuff) short of meat it aint.

    Good Way to Start a Friday

    Two of us had a good hunt this morning at a farm lake in Northern Greene Co. We could hear them coming in before legal shooting time or before we could even see them for that matter. Overcast morning so we got no help from the sun but at about 7:00 two flew right towards the decoys and as we shot,...ducks started going up everywhere in front of us. Two then four and then repeat was the order of the day and by 7:25 we had our limit of Mallards and Gadwalls. Ironic as it may sound more continued to try to come in as we picked up spent hulls and retrieved our birds. I forgot to take pics and even worse I forgot to save any flank feathers! We'll go again after Christmas and I'll remember then. These were fresh ducks and wanted to be where we were waiting. This observation is supported by the fact we never blew a call! Conditions/Equipment: Dense Overcast skies Temp 31 degrees No wind, completely glassy surface Thin sheet ice along shoreline extending out 18-24" 2 dozen, Dakota Mallard flocked head floating dekes (3 on a jerk-string) 1 Higdon Splashy Flasher motion decoy Merry Christmas to all, od

    Yellow bass on flies or lures

    Crab orchard lake is full of them near the dam but they are usually tiny. Rend lake and Carlyle also good bets. PM me if you want to know a lake with some in the 12-15” range.

    Carry Weapon?

    I don’t care if you have a weapon or not. Bad mouth, grab, my wife or daughters and me and my family will be leaving promptly. Depending on the circumstances, I might accept an apology or offer one for my, wife's, or child's behavior. The relationship might be over. Bye and pressing charges if you touch one of my daughters. Lots of options before you get into your Rambo fantasy. I’m not going to court & risking a civil lawsuit for a macho fantasy.

    A knife can deploy faster than a gun at close range. Edge of your credit/debit card will slice too. Slash at the forehead, eyes, hands to disable. Used to carry but just extra weight IMO.

    question

    You are absolutely correct. However people are not born knowing how to perform CNC machining or even stick welding. The quickest way to learn those things is school. That is why the Eureka Springs schools maintain a building trades and supports a high school program at a multi district location. That gives the students a head start. However, the choices are not school or no school. The choice is what kind of school.

    Congratulation to Josh Busby from Rogersville, Mo on punching his ticket to Bassmaster Classic next year. I went to college and was fraternity brothers with Josh and am excited to see him get this shot. It seems like MLF has taken over the fishing world and we just don't hear or see as much about Bassmasters or the Classic as we used to. I still think it would be a dream come true to fish on that stage. Good luck to Josh at Guntersville! https://www.bassmaster.com/news/busby-heading-classic

    It’s food day here at the old salt mine. I've got a friend who works here who is a phenomenal baker. She's just got that touch and every thing she does is top notch. I won't buy baklava, and won't eat baklava if it's served. It's always too sickeningly sweet, except....... hers is outstanding. Don't know what her trick is, and even if I sat down and made it with her I doubt I could duplicate it.

    Nice Rainbows Caught Today

    Blake caught this rainbow late this afternoon. He caught it close to the dam throwing a jerk bait he custom painted - he's been taking lessons from Duane. It was the first fish caught on his baits. 23.5 inches. Released. Duane had a trip this morning. I'll steal his pics off his facebook page. Most were caught on his jerk baits I think.

    Kim City - Dec 19 - Deep bite

    I fished a while this morning and the deep bite is still good but it takes a lot of searching with the big motor and trolling motor. The shad are normally stacked when you find them and they might be thick for several hundred yards. I do not see very many fish relating to stacked shad. I normally find the shad then use both the big motor and trolling motor to search the edges for active fish. The shad are normally in the channel and I move to the shallow edges (normally 38-55ft). Caught fish this morning on a 4" smoke grub, Damiki rig, and 5/8 ice jig. The WT is about 50-51. The graph picture below shows no shad around the fish, but the shad were very thick about 60ft away. Had about 12 keepers and plenty of shorts.

    A Clouser, probably a #6 would be my choice on the flyrod. Sassy Shad on a 1/8 head if using spinning gear.

    Crappie in December

    Yep. Deep brush is a safe bet. In some areas the fish never really group up on structure, most of them are in open water chasing shad. In that case spooning can work really well. Last year this was all that really worked where I fished, if just fishing brush I would pick up a few, but it was pretty slow with a short period of action right before dark.

    Carry Weapon?

    Getting around in the North STL Hood is no big deal. Wear a suit and tie, carry a brief case. Do your business and don't linger. The skells will think you are the lawyer or the insurance man there to help their neighbor(Only reason to go there). Show up casual and linger, you are a mark. Should not be there, desperate for drugs or foul poontang, and you have a pocket full of cash and a vehicle. Would be lucky to leave with an STD, empty wallet, and the vehicle.

    Man this cracks me up..... I think if some of you boys came up here in real ghetto of North St Louis most of ya would turn into Casper the ghost. I only carry in very select areas where I have to take pics of properties up here and it’s more of a matter of self awareness. Out in the sticks I don’t even consider it, I’m with GAVIN take a blade, although I had a piece with me when I floated with him and Larry StL on the Piney once and almost broke it out hahahaha so I may be talking out my posterior on this one.

    question

    The increase in the cost of college has greatly outpaced inflation. Then you’re left with possibly hundreds of thousands in student loans. You better get a degree in the sciences or accounting or engineering. Combine that with the 100% proven fact that politics has entered the universities. It’s a total crap shoot. I’d say go to a local college first then spend your last 2 years where you want.

    Right, I'm thinking that Chet definitely benefitted from the timing. Imagine being a truly experienced photographer, entering a competition, and being beat out because someone has a soft heart for a dude that lost his foot in a chainsaw accident. The road to success these days passes over the Pitiful creek bridge.

    question

    That right there may be the biggest problem with college tuition/debt and the ideology spread at universities. Sure go spend that money on that degree in Art History.....see how well you can sell yourself to get your first job. Then moan and groan when the system shafts you. Truth be told most of these people doing that are ignorant to the repercussions of their decisions and their parents don't steer them in the right direction to begin with.

    Fishing Goals 2020

    My goal is to fish more in 2020 than I did this year as is with most I’d say. I slacked this year on my Flathead fishing I wanna get back to chasing them in 2020. Plan on fishing for more river walleye after the new year as well as crappie. Would love to hit the big lakes more my lake fishing was pretty good this past year, want to keep expanding on that and not just the rivers that I dearly love. Taking my son fishing more in 2020 my most important goal.

    question

    we were never promised an easy life. we are hear to learn, gain knowledge and wisdom, and to try as best we can to like Christ. learn to have that pure charity of heart. each trial we go through is for us to learn from. it is either to help us individually or to enable us to help someone else going through that same trial. the only way back home is through Christ. all of our choices will have a consequence of some kind. always choose the right, and it will help any of us to stay on that straight and narrow path. as far as supernatural happening in your life, maybe you have had but never recognized it. just a unintentioned meeting with someone can be your supernatural meeting, or something that someone says. being in tune with the Spirit helps in knowing when those moments have happened. i would guess that most never really recognize when a special blessing is given to them. they come at any time from anyone. one can pray about something and sometimes you get the answer in your head, but most often, it comes in many other ways. when one exercises faith, it will then begin to strengthen one's testimony. reading your scriptures is a great place to start. bo

    question

    And the person who decides that racist or sexist tendencies are a BAD THING is called a.... what? While I agree that judging someone based on gender or skin color ALONE (without even giving them a chance) is not cool, you are a liar if you claim no initial concern based upon it. My wife, who rips on me constantly about my "racist/sexist attitude", does quite a bit of buying/selling/trading via Facebook marketplaces. If she is meeting another white gal there's no hesitation or concern whatsoever, but if she's meeting a guy she needs someone to tag along with her. If she's meeting a black guy, or a Mexican dude....oh buddy....she wants ME to go with her, and wants ME out of the truck FIRST. Now what kinda hypocritical crap is going on there ? Has she ever had a problem with a black or Mexican fella? Nope, never. So what up, ya Ho?!!?? People are so full of BS and phoney ! It's real, everybody is like that, so own it and stop claiming to be non-judgemental when you obviously are, just because somewhere along the line someone decided that people shouldn't be that way. There's a reason for it and you know it......but we ain't getting into that HERE.
