  1. That got me to laughing uncontrollably ....... and I am not done yet.
  2. I can dance just like that....it just takes a lot of tequila (and only tequila will do). Or maybe I just feel like it. But does it matter?
  3. Ryan, I did like the cold over the heat and humidity. But I want to mention the sounds of summer. My wife has developed a cough that is worse while at home. I have taken to smoking a pipe outdoors and all of the sounds of a summer evening are very relaxing.
  4. I got out on Sunfish Lake on Sunday with the Mopar Vessel. I had hooked into something large the last time, there while in my cedar-stripper and I fished the same cove for more than an hour throwing a tandem spinner bait, buzz bait, the Ned-Rig and a wiggle wart with no success. I switched to an inline spinner and he hit it. It was a fight on that spinning outfit.
  5. This just happened to me. I was doing brakes on my '06 Dakota. I was convinced the lug nuts were metric for a brief instant. I could not get a 7/8's socket on some of them. On the first one I tried to turn it without the socket fully on and rounded it -- a mistake that would make a 16-year old feel like an idiot. I applied PB blaster every day for a week, bought a 23-mm socket, got all of them off but removed the damaged nut last -- I hammered that socket all of the way on that nut and it did turn. The nuts have a chrome plating, the steel on the nut rusts and expands the chrome plating. I replaced all of them with after-market steel-only nuts. Thanks for reading -- I do feel better but have no idea how this topic started.
  6. The road to it goes through where the picnic tables and fire pits used to be. It about two hundred feet from the old ramp on the north side of the lake. Google Earth shows the lake in the drawn down state but does not show the new ramp.
  7. They used some of those blocks they acquired for the ramp. A boat with average draft should be able to launch.
  8. I have still to see anything published on what decision has been made by the USFS. I had the solo out there last week. The water is up to the new boat ramp. I paddled to the dam, got out and looked down. The dam does have a lot of structural issues. The new road allows access to the dam and I picked up a lot of beer cans. It is getting as bad in rural areas as it is in my neck-of-the-woods up here. Now, that biologist says the redear population has increased because of the oxygen generated by the vegetation. It is just that I do not have a plan for catching them. I started catching bluegill -- better than average. The next day I had a bucket and all I caught were small bass. I got a kick out of it all, though.
  9. JD, my Ouachita had stick steering. I had to remove it and install a console with a wheel when the rod cap on the 55-horse came loose at WOT and I bought a 75-horse and rebuilt it. The stick steering unit was rated for a 35-horse outboard. I came to miss it. Advantages: It takes up no room in the boat where a console, or two, does. When you stop the outboard and decide to fish you don't have to move seats. You have better visibility. Casting decks are overrated -- bending over to lip a fish is a lot of work these days. Disadvantages: A bit of a rougher ride being in front.
  10. I use the cedar-stripper for small lakes around here, it is not a bad experience. I use the bass boat for one trip in the spring for crappie at Wappapello and one for bass at LOZ in the fall.
  11. It is they who should read that book.
  12. That is what ran through my mind. Why would you take videos if you weren't planning for this outcome. And then, they post the videos on YouTube.
  13. I would go if I was not out of town for my job. Hopefully, this goes well and you all could schedule another event.
  14. Now that looks like a cool place. I did not know about it.
