    I’m a numbers guy, but I expect 2020 to be more about new experiences. I have a trip lined up for Mexico, hoping for a New England trip, hoping for Carp on the fly in Michigan, trying for a Sandhills Nebraska Trip, and still trying to line up a Venice bass fishing trip.

    My man Marty is making me want to wave the fairy wand more.

    I intend to fish the Spring River in OK.

    I’m hoping for a follow up Redear trip with Quillback.

    I’d like to get Waldo on the stretch of the White above Eureka Springs.

    Waldo also needs to ply the waters of the Strawberry River.

    I’m going to try for 10 states fished this year.

    And let’s try for 10 Benjamin’s and 20 Fifty Burgers

    so let’s say modest numbers like 3000 total fish

    a Great Big number of fish species caught like say 75 total species. I want 13 lifers in that mix.

     Including an American Eel which I failed to do in 2019.

    pics or it didn’t happen right. 

    What are you hoping for in 2020?


    New England trip - Got the Rona

    Michigan trip - Got the rona 

    Spring River in OK - Got the Rona 

    I made the Redear trip with Quillback. Caught a Toad. 

    I am not likely to get to 10 States this year. TX, LA, AR, MO so far. I am supposed to add Florida, Kansas, and Nebraska.

    maybe OK maybe IL maybe KY or TN 

    I'll have to double check on trip totals. Lots of 50 Burgers, but not many (any? ) Benjamins so far. 

    Sitting at 1498 fish to hand 

    45 species so far. 55 species is going to happen. We will see beyond that. 7 lifers so far. The Florida trip should blow that goal out of the water and push me along on total species number too.

    Still planning on hitting The Ditch. Still planning on fishing Strawberry River again. 

  2. Just Do the Current River. Round Spring to however far you want to go (maybe Van Buren gets you that 50 miler from Round Spring).

    IMO, August is a terrible plan (too hot at night), but on the Current you will have plenty of camping options. You'll have flow. You'll have decent fishing opportunities. Decent amount of take out options. 

  3. Growing up, having a Rebel flag in the back window of your pickup truck was just something a lot of southern boys did.  It just showed a Love for where they lived ;  Nothing more. I do not believe for a second that everyone with a Rebel Flag is a Nazi or white supremacist.  I don't believe it is intended by most to be a Giant FU to people of color. I don't own any version of the Stars and Bars. Never have. I don't romanticize that era. That's not my thing in any way manner or form, but this cancel culture where ppl are triggered by so many things and the offended mob has to appeased has gotten way out of hand. Some might see that as "improvement" , but it is not. 

  4. Overall, we caught a break. I hope people won't be too disappointed that it did not require catastrophic releases to prevent over topping the dams. 

    Earlier,  it looked like Norfork was releasing water from spillways rather than running in thru the turbines ? The trout might like the cooler water in the mix. 


  5. There has to be a Big Picture explanation. There has to be pieces to this puzzle that we aren’t aware of. Because on the surface this makes absolutely no sense. At a minimum, they could have kept running 20K 24 hours a day for the last handful of days. That 50K water could have been 30K water which would not have flooded resorts. 
    property owners along the White are likely to suffer a big hit.

  6. Glorification of The Civil War was never my thing. It is a part of our history. Pretty dark times for a lot of ppl back then. 
    I think it’s pretty outrageous to equivocate it to a Nazi Flag. Lots of ppl triggered by lots of things these days.
