    Wife just

    My uncle posted this on FB this week: "With all this snow falling, my wife has just been looking through the window for the past few days. If it stays cold for much longer, I might have to let her inside."

  4. As everyone knows in the Midwest (and North Mexico), we're coming out of a extremely cold weather event. This cold spell will have a huge impact on Lake Taneycomo going forward. Why do I say that? Because we get our water from Table Rock, and in many places on that lake, its surface is frozen from bank to bank. Because it's so deep, the lake will hold this cold water clear through the summer and into the fall months. We'll probably see temperatures in the upper 30's on Taneycomo later in April and May, maybe into June. And water temps in the fall will not rise into the mid 50's like in y

  10. Guys, Everyone has now paid their entry fee. Thanks to all of you for quickly doing so and making things easy. Most appreciated! We have 21 participants which brings the prize pool to $210. I figured it would be fair to payout the top 4 finishers. If agreeable by the group the Tackle Warehouse Gift Card payout shall be: 1st = $100 2nd = $60 3rd = $30 4th = $20 Let me know if anyone has a problem with that scale. Thanks again guys!

    CUSTOM PAINTED ROGUE?

    It seems like the company that makes Rogues (Smithwick or Pradco) used to do a lot of limited runs. Not quite customs, but a little less common.

  16. I know for a fact that the weather we are having here in Missouri was due to a mistake at the National Weather Service. They had a new hire that thought MO stood for Minnesota. So they gave us their forecast. Our dumb luck because the one time in history the National Weather Service got a forecast right it gave us Minnesota weather!๐Ÿ˜€

    Crawfish Trapping

    While I've always been terrified of them, the deal that tore the sheet forever was farm pond fishing with good buddy back when I was in my early twenties. My friend was getting started learning the guide business in Montana and later Alaska and, like his mentors, always carried a .44 magnum in case of a bear attack. Well, not in northeast Kansas I guess but it had become a sort of habit whenever he was in the "bush". Or "wild" or whatever you wanna call it. Outdoors would probably suffice I suppose. Anyways, we're in this rickey old wooden john boat at his uncles pond when he got his

    Nope. Most often used here as an adder with basmati rice and mushrooms cooked in chicken stock. Doesnโ€™t take much - simple and delicious. Mike

    Just a guess but with it being around 60 on Tuesday I would say that Wed would be a safe bet for launching but you might need a torch to thaw out the fish if you catch any. lol

    Penzey's is were I usually source it. They have it on the shelf. Some grocery stores have it but you have to ask at the courtesy counter. Usually located next to the Dom Perignon & Cristal.

    Looks like factory black and white with some accents and an epoxy coat. I'd fish it after I debarbed those hooks. Great looking bait.

  30. Many times. String and some kind of bait like a fish gut. Drop it down and let them pinch, flip them out on bank. Caught a nice mess on 11pt one trip many years ago. We were cleaning trout at the 19 bridge access and tossing the offal into the river on a moss lined bank. Noticed the crawdads swarming it. Tied some guts on the hook and grabbed another ziploc bag. I caught them, buddy tossed them in a bag. We flushed them out for a day in a cooler and feasted. Picked up some already cleaned tails today for some Etoufee, had a craving for it.

    Road Trip?

    Always something to look at in that area. Make it an over nighter and shack up in a motel. Enjoy the local flora of a small town. Arcadia, Caledonia, Fredricktown. Mountains old as the world's beginnings. Mining, Parks, Elephant Rocks, Shutins, and just simple folks enjoyin life.

  33. They shut the water off around noon today so I went to the C&R zone at the dam. Caught some nice rainbows, 1 cutthroat about 16" and a Tiger trout that was about 13". They stocked the tigers last fall and the ones I caught in the fall were all around 8 inches so it looks like they are growing pretty fast. They were all triploids so I guess that's why. Here's a couple pictures of the better rainbows. One on a Y2K and the other on a Ruby midge.

    I like 8 weights and sinking lines. I hate those leaders that Wrench uses but I'm not as good of caster as he is.

    Fly rod/reel help

    I trim all of my sink tips down to 10ft. or less, and actually have come to prefer Rio sinking leaders. Some guys whine about the "hinge effect" of them.....but I don't have any problems with them at all. You just have to alter your stroke a bit.....Cast it like you do a Clouser (in an oval path) instead of trying to cast it like a dry fly ๐Ÿ™„

    Fly rod/reel help

    No I haven't. Anytime I want to fish a sink tip for trout I reach for the 6wt. 7wt. would be better, but I don't trout fish with my 7 or 8wt. rods. I've tried a variety of lines and sinking leaders on a 5wt. and for me they either don't get down quickly enough.....or they are too heavy to quickly pickup and cast. I mean, I can do it, but not nearly as efficiently. I hate missing a good shot because I couldn't get control of my crap before we drifted past it too far. I guess if you're standing in one spot at a trout park all day.....then it wouldn't matter, but that

    Fly rod/reel help

    Most 8' 5wts are not really well suited for deep nymphing, or streamer fishing. Small lightly weighted streamers, or shallow nymphing w/o an indicator should be doable with your rod though. I prefer a 10' rod for deep nymph fishing. Usually use a 9' 7wt for smallmouth, or 9' 9wt for saltwater, or really big flies. I would not put a sinking line on anything under a 7wt.

    Unless you wanna huck giant streamers to big browns then a 9' 6wt. is perfect IMO. You can pull it off with a 5wt. but 5wt. sink tip lines are a joke. Sinking or sink-tip lines don't become useful until you get to 6wt and above.

  40. Rolled over the Eagle Rock Bridge today. Broken ice all around from the swimming area down to the submerged island/point across from RR. Upstream looked solid frozen. Past the mouth of RR looked wet. 3 hours later and a lot more wet than frozen. That sun is working it over good.

    Knee Replacement

    Quill my sister-in-law in KC that's how they told her they were going to do hers. They need to wake up and come into reality. We had a nurse from St Louis that works at Washington University and she was told if you want the best, go to COG, there is a reason they're one of the top centers in the country. We also have a lady at our church that had an ankle done at kU orthopedic and they fused it. Told her there was to much deteriation to fix it. She could barely walk. A friend told her COG could fix it. Not only did they defuse it, And clean up the mess she has total movement and no

    Knee Replacement

    Surgery took under 2 hours was doing therapy 3 hrs after surgery. Moved to lodge COG Lodge that evening. Short walk down the hall. My wife was my support person and we both stayed in their wonderful lodge. Just like a fine hotel. Had therapy again that evening and walked stairs. Next morning full work out with therapists and headed home by 10 am. No pain what so ever I had a spinal for surgery and that blocked any pain. Only uncomfortable I had was the 3rd. day at nite. Took 1 oxycodine. Hated it but felt better. Never took another one. I used an ice machine and tramadol as needed. Still

    Must have been day dreaming. My Master Naturalist wife introduced the fact that hypothermia can begin when the water temp and outside air temp added equal 120 or below (she's also a kayaker). Today it would have been around 45. But I have done 3 tours in Korea, and today would have been jacket weather compared to winter on the ImJin.

    Crawfish Trapping

    Northern water snake - harmless. Several summers ago I feel asleep on a raft near our dock - woke up with one of these laying on my leg - although I knew it was harmless, I darn near s___ myself.

  50. We used to trap them with gallon milk jugs. Bury the jug up to the opening in the bottom with bait inside and a short piece of rope tied to the handle. They crawl into the jug to get the bait and can't get back out because of the smooth sides and inward sloping top of the jug. If they really try hard I'm sure they could swim up and out, but it would take some work. Used to catch lots of them that way and the "traps" were easy to come by.
