  1. My son and I decided to social distance at our cabin for a day and night for my birthday after a rain halted field work here on the farm. We left yesterday and got to the cabin at 6pm. I looked at the lake and saw it was dingy from all the rain but it called my name, I was imediately thinking crankbait or spinnerbait! It was cold and windy but I convinced Landen let fish till dark so we launched the boat. He wanting to learn more about boating and insisted he wanted to run the trolling moter which I always do. So I let him and told him head over to a favorite point of mine, where the bank levels off more slowly, thinking be a good place to throw a crank. I had a spro Rock crawler I had planned on tying on, but my favorite crank rod had a teckel drunker tied on from my latest river trip. I’ve had good luck with that little deep diving crank thanks to Ham for introducing me to them. So I was like I’m gonna chunk this for a few Minutes then tie on the spro. Well Landen positioned me in a good spot and made my first cast. The second cast was towards a fallen tree, bout halfway to the boat she hit. When I drawed back on her the drag began to go. I said son get the net it’s a biggun! Finally I worked her to the surface but I failed to remember my net had a big rip in it from December’s Jigfest, well Landen netted it beautifully but she ripped the hole even bigger and fell back in the water. So the fight was on again but this time my line was through the net as an added level of difficulty ha ha. I had Landen hold the net as I once again surfaced the fish, by this time it had one treble left in the thin part of its upper lip. Finally got the fish back up and grabbed lip and rubber net all together to land it. For a few minutes there it got really exciting ha. Didn’t have my scales for some reason, guess I took them out of the boat? But she measured 23 inches long, don’t have a girth measurement either. Looking at some charts I’d say she’s around 8 pounds! I’ve fished this lake my whole life, including my dad since 1965, and I’ve never caught one this big anywhere. Just right place and right time and right cast. Letting Landen run the trolling moter for the first time may of made this happen to! Today is my birthday and can’t think of a better present! Bret
  2. Let him practice on my coosa today in a local pond. He did great
  3. Landen is wanting a kayak this year and curious what some of you might recomend for an 11 year old? Gonna start out on our little lake at the cabin and when he gets better try the southfork or something similar easier to navigate. I have an original jackson coosa and have loved it so far, thinking he might need something little more stable?
  4. Been using this grease here on the farm for everything from bearings to wear points on farm equipment. It’s doesn’t mix with water like some cheaper greases so I really love it on wheel bearings. Haven’t used it in my jet pump yet but I’m out of the marine grease as of last time I greased it. Think this would be fine on a jet pump to?
  5. Put in at lobo Landing and you can fish 2 or 3 miles of river just take it easy, it’s a deep stretch of river with tons of grass beds. Pretty good fishing round there. Anywhere else in the trout water section of it would be Risky. Plenty of good water at Lobo to have a great day fishing
  6. Here’s one of my favorites. We took my jet up a local farm drainage ditch known to have some bass and had a good little trip chasing some kentuckies
  7. It was. Local river here are blown out still. Our southern mo ozark rivers here are staying fishable pretty soon after a rain. They giving. 2-4 inches here this Tuesday again.
  8. Took the future son in law fishing today. He hung with me pretty good and taught him a few things about river fishing. I had taken him once before and when I mentioned staying close to Home and trying some crappie or heading back to the river, he immediately said he loves that river bass trip last time He didn’t twist my arm much for that and off we went. The fish are for sure coming out of there winter stage here, did best on a crank in some pretty good current in what I call staging areas above holes. We had a pretty good hour then the wind and clouds moved in and the fishing slowed, great afternoon however I brought him back home so guess he gets my approval 😛. She had a couple BF’s in the past that might had disappeared. Ha ha
  9. Thanks man. Yeah kinda makes you ready for summer
  10. Pete if restrictions aren’t a problem I’d go with the 90/65 bit the 60/40 HO option fits for 60/40 rivers. I can tell you there is a noticeable difference from my old 60/40. Seth is right about the tourqe it jumps out of the water fast with the extra weight I carry. I love it. Starts up great on cold days to I think Seth is right on the displacement specs.
  11. I run a 60/40 HO on mine Pete. My old 60/40 would run 27to 28. This one will run low 30s. I have an 18/52 now as opposed to 17/52 on the old motor. I didn’t really want the extra speed as much as the ability to plane out better with more weight. I believe the HO does that better for me. With 3 batteries, gear and trolling moter and if I wanna take 2 guys with me. My boat will still plane good and run high 20s. It’s more weight on the back being a 90hp head detuned or whatever but love it after 2 years of use
  12. Here’s another one I uploaded from last season. Always love the ones with me and Landen. Two part show with some catfishing here at home on the St Francis and some trout fishing up on white river with some white river zig jigs!
