    Macsimus got a reaction from Daryk Campbell Sr in Lake House Rental?   
    Hey Guys, we're looking for a house to rent on or near the lake for March & April 2020. It's mostly just for the two of us and we are mature, retired folks with our party days in the far distant past.¬†ūüėÄ
    We've been renting a house in the Blue Eye area for the last 6 years but it looks as though that has fallen thru for next year. I've been scouring VRBO and AirBnB without much success and was just hoping maybe one of you might have a lead on a place. I bring a boat so I would need a place to park it with electrical access. I love to fish all over the lake and so have no wish to keep it in a marina. We would prefer the Blue Eye area.
    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Probably regional. Toothy fish that we disdain up here are the northern pike, aka slimers, aka toothy critters, aka jackfish in Canada, eh. Actually good eating but tiresome as they bite off a lot of tackle. I would never risk a MB jerkbait up here.¬†ūüėČ

    One of the funniest things I’ve noticed about the Upper Mississippi above Minneapolis is that everyone you talk to thinks their section of the river is better than anyone else’s. That river is good for 100 miles. 
    The bass look different from different sections of the river, the farther North you go, they look like an oversized blue gill, very tall from top to bottom. The farther Downstream, the fish look closer to a Missouri smallmouth. But guess what? You put them on the scale and they weigh the same. It all depends on what kind of water you like to fish.

    Sounds very challenging. I've only done float and wade trips. Just think of the bright side however - no¬†jet fleas or¬†wakeboard boats.¬†ūüėÄ

    Macsimus got a reaction from shark bait in Interesting MLF Stats   
    Including today's first two periods, if I understood it correctly, the MLF guys have caught the following:
    LM         2,800       4,846lbs
    Spots    2,615       3,804lbs
    SM           562       1,005lbs
    Not sure where they got the 12,655 lbs total as I added it up and got 9,655 total lbs. 
    Still, some pretty darn good catchin'!

    Generous advice, Bill, as always. What I admire is the fact you do not need to build your rep and yet you still handout facts.

    Do it let him fool you on the pronunciation.¬† ¬†You don't fish in the Mississip'ah river.¬†ūüėĀ

    Indeed. But, now that I know how to correctly pronounce 'Missouri', I feel better about myself.
    How are ya, lad? Did you make it down for a spring trip this year?

    They're known as government dogs up here.¬†ūüėĬ† I have never been able to enjoy staring¬†down a hole in the ice hoping to catch a 6" bluegill. Now a heated shack with a good card game and a pot of chili on the stove is an excellent treatment for cabin fever.¬†¬†

    Lol. That pic was taken in Feb. Here it snows in Nov and just stays until April. None of the nancy snows that are gone in a day. And yes, I would prefer rain.

    No offset or door size problem thank goodness, but I did have a garage depth problem.  With my son's help, we added a dog house to the back wall that provides space for the motor. It hangs about 6" off the ground so no footings. It allowed me to stuff a 20' 4" boat into 20' 11" of available space thanks to the way in which BassCat minimizes trailer length. Straight in, no angle parking, and the missus is able to park in the other stall which ensures general happiness.

    Macsimus reacted to Phil Lilley in National Youth Fishing Tournament   
    I had the honor today to captain a couple of Jr High boys from Springfield in the aforementioned tournament today on Table Rock.  I had William and Sam Kuzemka in my boat.  We launched out of State Park, first cast at 6:35 a.m. on the first point NW of the ramp close to the Branson Belle.
    They started out throwing a swim bait (grub) but I quickly switched them to a ned and it was on.  They fished my smallmouth banks in Jakes, Powerline and Clevenger Coves... all the ones I could remember.  I don't think I got over there any last spring so I was going off my long-time memory.
    Set the boat in 16-20 feet most of the time until the fog burned off about 10 a.m., then we backed out to 30 feet.  I had them fish the bottom although every 3rd or 4th cast came back with the green slime.
    They had about 13 keepers, all smallies expect one spot.  We culled a couple of 16-inchers and had one kicker brown about 3.5 pounds.  All bass except the spot appeared to have spawned - they had no pouches at all.... but what do I know, I'm a trout guy.  Had may be the same number of shots plus 3-4 nice gogs (which I'm going back for this week!!).
    The boys weighed in at 13.58 and took 2nd out of 60 teams.
    260 teams in the high school division... weigh in at White Water.  Needless to say there was a traffic jam getting into the lot, which was basically full when I left at the beginning of the High School weigh in period.  I hope they pulled it together cause .... well you know.
    Ulrich was there with 2 pontoons/tanks for the catches.  Babler said they do a good job keeping them alive and back in the lake.

    I was glued to my laptop watching KY3 radar for most of the storm. I couldn't believe the number of tornado warnings that kept popping up. Severe weather always puts me on edge after going through a terrifying storm with my kids when they were young. Fortunately, nothing other than some heavy rain in the Blue Eye area after the rough stuff passed.
