  1. Topwater Boat Question.

    Awwww Man, I never got to see it
  2. Great nymphing combo

    Heck of a deal! I'm becoming progressively more rod poor though.
  3. White Bass Size limit

    I don't know the limits on White Bass anywhere because I have zero interest in keeping any of them. I love to catch them, but they are a recreational fish only.
  4. Poaching Story

    I think I might keep 5 a year
  5. What's the Buzz

    Pretty high gradient and smallish watershed. It goes down very quickly after a rain and is a treacherous wade/drag. There are several areas that have long stretches of exposed bedrock covered with a slime/algae. Multiple falls onto bedrock. No much fun. add in the fact that there are No USGS gauges. It's good when you get lucky and t)2 water level is right, but it's no better than the other creeks/rivers. there is no Holy Grail creek/river that others aren't fishing in this area. Wisconsin or Minnesota maybe
  6. 28-inch Spawning Colors Rainbow

    That's a MONSTER! You Da Man! That's Fantastic!
  7. I got a 2017 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT 5.3 L V8
  8. I was able to carve out 4 days to go take my Dad fishing. He isn't able to go fishing by himself anymore and most of his fishing buddies are in similar situations. Big Cypress Bayou below Lake O the Pines is a Cypress tree lined jewel. I freaking love it. If I got to make a trip there in mid to late October/November EVERY year that would be fine by me. Shallow dingy water that has panfish, catfish, and bass. This year I had a special treat. My daughter was able and willing to make the trip down with me. She has always been close with my Dad. It was important to her to spend some time with him. We didn't get an early start either day, but we fished more than I expected too both days and caught decent numbers of crappie. My numbers were down, but I was playing guide most of the day. I took my trout boat down because it's better for my Dad, but it's harder to control and we a bunch of wind. New truck did great. I put over 1000 miles on the trip. At times, I averaged almost 17 miles to the gallon trailering the trout boat. Dang! My biggest disappointment was failing to catch a Spotted Sunfish. I tried.

    Done deal Jeff. Friday AM it is. If we are sure about those dates, I'll text Got Muddy, Richard Cross, and make sure LRF know ASAP.
  10. Watching my Dad's health fail and watching his personality change as dementia tightens its grip on him is very difficult for me. I fish because he fished and included me on his trips. He doesn't love fishing like he used to. I guess that's ok because he really can't fish very well any more and he can't go on his own anymore. I'm headed down this Friday with my daughter to take Dad fishing Saturday and Sunday for as long as he wants. It may be an hour or if might be all day. Hopefully, he'll enjoy himself.

    I'll be staying at my Bluff Cabin. I'll have a boat and a couple of empty seats. I'll fish Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
  12. Official Jigfest #4 thread

    Woo Hoo! I'm looking forward to it!
