  1. Floated Mountain Creek to lead mine Friday, the water had just a hint of color to it from the rain. We caught a ton of 12-15” smallies on spinning rod flukes and fly rods with streamers. Awesome day once again on the Niangua. (Even though I snapped a Sage rod on a log jam )
  2. Topwater poppers on a fly rod are working.... brought in a couple of big smallies this week and a lot of little ones.
  3. Hey guys, I typically hunt in Laclede county where I live, but want to experience a float/archery hunt for turkeys this spring. It seems like the Eleven Point would be a good place to do that. I talked to someone at the ranger station on the phone and she said that floating the stretch of Irish Wilderness would make it almost impossible to accidentally stumble onto private land. 1. Is that the case in regards to it being almost completely public hunting land on the stretch of the Irish Wilderness? 2. Is the river in that area pretty fast or is it easy to float? 3. Is that stretch of the river big enough to be bothered by jet boaters? Thanks so much for your help!
  4. I've heard the narrows are incredible. I live on the Niangua but was considering coming down next week to float and fish for smallies. Is that an area that is floatable right now? If so where would be good in and out points. Also, is this a good place for smallies? I'll just have a day to float. Thanks!!
  5. I have a great 1648 Alweld jet boat with a 50 hp Merc. The boat is 87 and the motor in 75. The boat runs perfect. The compression is great and the motor had been stored out of the weather. The bottom of the boat has dents from being a jet boat but there are no leaks. It has a brand new 2010 Nationwide trailer under it and all new seats and steering wheel. Also has a brand new Motorguide 43 lb thrust trolling motor. Rewired last month. Truely a great boat but I want to trade it for a 20,25, or 30 hp tiller boat. Somebody who wants to upgrade would really like this boat. It runs great on the current and gasconade but my little streams are a bit too small for it. Call or text me at 417-531-9922. Thanks. Sorry about all the dust!
  6. Brown?......Oh yeah that was that fishing guide that molested the little kids on the gravel bar a couple years back.....yeah "puts meat in the boat" i get it now! Lol
  7. Yeah I don't see many down past NRO.
  8. Thats pretty irritating....most of us just shoot up to where we want to fish and then float back. Putting in at Prosperine would let us avoid the huge masses of canoers upriver, but still not have to go all the way around to Lead Mine.
  9. Come on now.....there arnt any canoers there! You haven't go to give me hell for takin a boat on the lake! Lol
  10. I put in at a little campground off of J where the little Niangua runs into the lake....tool my jet up river a little and then fished the lake a little....didn't catch but three fish! What the heck?! Does that area suck or what? I did however see a million gar!
  11. I understand what you're saying. I don't think it would benefit anyone to run a jet in any crowded areas. I and a few others who live here do run them on less busy areas in the summer and more often in the spring and fall......nobody likes to get knocked around in a canoe!
  12. I'd rather have jet boats than all the pricks in canoes that litter the river with beer cans and show everyone their naked parts. I think the Niangua has worse problems than jet motors!
  13. I was just doing some thinking.....I wonder if enough of us wanted to write the MDC about a gravel ramp at Prosperine if they would consider putting one in? It wouldn;t take much, just moving those big rocks mostly....it would just be nice to get put in down there.
  14. Thanks so much Al...I run my jet on the Niangua alot and it sounds like it may be similar...probably should stay off until this rain gets it up a little! You wouldn't happen to be the Al Agnew who has his name all over these beautiful paintings in my office would you?
