    Shot my personal best deer.

    While not a MO deer I do hang out here on the forum so thought I would share my personal best deer. I shot this one in Nebraska. After seeing this guy Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and not being able to get a shot; he finally gave me an opportunity Wednesday. My personal best by far!

    Saturday, Big M area

    Fished in the morning, the day started out cold and foggy, but rapidly warmed up into the mid 60's. Mainly fished the Ned rig, and there was a decent bite, boated 15 fish and lost many others, it was one of those days where the bite was weird and they were hard to stick. Mostly 12-14 inch spots, had 3 that were right around the keeper mark. Chunk rock banks in 10-20 FOW WT was 54 early in the AM.

    What's Cooking?

    As soon as I am back in town I will message about the deer.. Big thanks! I have a soup in the slow cooker this afternoon. I am using the turkey stock made with the roasted bones of last weekend's roasted turkey. I added onion, carrot, celery, tomatoes, spinach, garlic, tomato pate, white wine, spices and herbs to the stock for now. Near dinner time I will add ditalini. I picked up a take and bake baguette to go with the soup. Nancy insists on a salad, so cucumber and tomatoes will serve once more. Good living in the Ozarks! P.S. Everyone should experience what I went through Friday. I put the roast turkey, the smoked turkey, and the vegetarian dressing in slow cookers to warm and served them in the buffet we prepared for the students and their teachers. They left not a shred or a crumb. Little things count for much.

    What's Cooking?

    Split, brined and smoked 2 turkeys for our Church thanksgiving dinner. Put them on this morning early, smoked for 5 hrs then bagged them, terrible just terrible I tell ya. During the wait time my wife was making cranberry tart 4 hing and some pecan bars, and I got bored and decided I would make some bread, 2 loaves, one for supper and one went home with daughter and grandson. Currently awaiting my turn to go work clean up after the church dinner. Did get to take grandson for a ride to see where Nanna shot her deer at, and mulch up a few leaves, he is my buddy. No pics of anything, so maybe I only dreamed it?

    Shot my personal best deer.

    One of my fishing buddy's sent me this a few hours after I turned down the chance to go fishing with him. I was too busy working up my wife's 3rd deer. I keep telling myself it's only a few more days till it's over.

    deep bite is gaining steam

    Took Jeff this morning out of the Lodge. Deep bite in the dam area outside of Beardsley is fantastic and as you know I have not purchased my Winter pass to go in there yet. We had 49 fish with 30+ keeps this morning. They were not bunched up as much to really hammer them with a spoon but the C-rig is just working out of this World. 1 oz. wt. size 2/0 hook and a Zoom watermelon candy centipede or a pbj centipede are just getting hammered. Probably the best rig bite I've seen in the last 10 yrs. We had 3 doubles on this graph location. I was throwing the big jig and Jeff the rig. He caught 5 keeps here and I had 2 nice ones and a 14.7/8. Surface temp was 56.7. Got some nice pic's of Jeff with real quality K's and a nice jaw. Had zero LM today. When he gets back to the Lodge I'll post his pictures if I get a moment and can get them off his phone. Depth was about 10' deeper today. Nothing under 35' and lots of them in the 45' to 55' range. Not nearly so many shad today and when we did find them there were no fish on them. One point we fished was covered on the South side with millions of shad. The North side of the ridge was covered with Bass. Go figure. On most lakes you tell someone you are catching bass 50' deep on a C-rig and a jig they would clear their throat and think you were bonkers. Not on this pond, catch them where their swimming. Good Luck and Look Deep

    Got in late this afternoon, only had the last hour of daylight to fish. Started a little below outlet 2 with only a few people around (amazing for a 70 degree afternoon). Throwing a P&P midge size 18 on 6x about 3 ft under indicator. Hooked up with a decent fish on the first cast but then had to search through a few other staples without anymore luck. Finally did well on a couple stripping #6 pine sculpin before leaving. Nothing big but great start to the week. Need to hit Phil’s for Mink scuds and more Sculpins tomorrow. Also want to get out after dark and throw some streamers in the next few days. If anyone else is down here pls chime in and let us know how you are doing.

    I marinate a couple of hours in soy sauce, brown sugar, fresh ginger and fresh garlic. Then grilled over hot coals like a fine steak.

    Secrets are no fun!

    I find that size 20-24 get significantly more bites than 16-18 on my dries at Bennett.

    Yep, I knew it. You aren't allowed to share a plate of fried fish and hush puppies with another gal either......even if your Sig-O doesn't eat fish. Now you can gift them RAW FISH..... that's ok.... but bygod you don't cook it and deliver it to them while it's still warm unless you wanna sleep in the recliner chair for 3 nights. Been there/Done that. 😏

    What's Cooking?

    I once made a deal very similar. I was going to apple picking with my now-wife. A female co-worker who lived alone offered to make an apple pie if I Supply the ingredients. She enjoyed baking but it would have made too much for her alone. I came home and told my girlfriend slash now wife about the deal. What happened next I would have never imagined. Most reading this probably know. I was totally in the dark. Long story short I learned that women do not like other women making food for their significant other. The story ends on a happy ending, we've been married for over 13 years now been together for 19. I just attended the wedding of the female co-worker a month or so ago. She ended up marrying a long-lost high school buddy of mine. Our sons play on the same soccer team.

    Wacked them all day. Probably 50. Mostly Kentucky’s in 15 foot of water. Heavy fat fish looking to barely take a bait. Slow is the way they are hitting finesse baits.

    deep bite is gaining steam

    Was on the water this morning at the Dam after about 3 weeks in the deer woods. Bite was just stupid, 26' to 40' on the bottom and suspended over that 40' number. So many it would have been hard to try and count. Just fish after fish.. Did have 2 really nice SM I didn't photog. if a fish came off, no worries as another one would grab the bait, regardless what you were throwing. Was reeling one in on a C-rig and it came off and another one hammered it right at the boat as I was pulling it up to re-cast. Had several come off the spoon and another would hit it before it got to the bottom. You could bring them right to the surface if you caught one they would worm like crazy. From KC to Cricket Creek right now on the gravel rolloffs. You can really catch them on a C-rig, a 3/4 jig, a jigging spoon or a drop shot with a shad shape worm. Not hard at all. surface temps ranged from 55 to 59 degree. Water especially up Long Creek is stained. I was mining for an upcoming guide trip and fished 8 locations this morning and caught them the same on all 8 stops. Lots of LM mixed in with the K's and also a few nice jaws. Good Luck

    Shot my personal best deer.

    I agree. Go ahead and post your personal best. Here is one of the largest deer I have taken with my bow. Not a buck, but it was the most difficult, frustrating, and rewarding blood trailing job so far.

    Shot my personal best deer.

    In an effort for full disclosure on the scoring: I had the deer officially green scored today. I feel stupid as I made a mistake. When scoring a deer you only get the first 4 mass measurements per side and I thought you got all the mass measurements between all the points. With that said the deer officially gross scored 198 5/8ths; so the extra mass measurements that are not allowed added up to 10 3/8ths that I stupidly added that I shouldn't have. All my other measurements were right on the money.

    Shot my personal best deer.

    It is 7x6 typical and 9x7 with the extra junk. Me and a buddy are definitely not official scorers but we try our best to follow the Boone and Crocket guide to try and do it as accurate as possible. With that said we came up with 209 gross. Not sure what the 'net' score would be as we say 'nets are for fishing; not scoring deer'. I will eventually have this one officially scored but it will be a while.

    Cape Fair - up Flat 11/3

    I dropped in at sun up and it was chilly, cloudy and breezy. Started with a buzzbait and never had a sniff. Tossed a Rock Crawler for another 20 minutes with nothing to show for it and a hodge podge of other stuff that did me no good. So I decided to run up Flat Creek. Water was 55.5 degrees when I decided I found a place I wanted to try. I tied on a jarkbait thinking "what the heck". And I am glad I did. Caught around 15 total but all were short of keeper length I believe. Still a great time. For living right on the water - I sure don' get out enough. Thanks for reading.

    Can't believe you caught any on that Sexy Cartoon color McStick. Fish must be a lot dumber up river than they are down by the dam. Thanks for the report. 55 degrees.....getting down there eh?
