  1. Not to hijack the thread but met up with a fishing buddy and we kayaked around George Winter last Friday. I got skunked but he hooked into a real nice Longnose gar with a chatterbait I believe. Probably a 4 footer. I tried to unhook it without getting cut by it as it thrashed around, but just as I got some actual leverage with the pliers, it thrashed around one more time and I guess the pliers gave him enough leverage to break off the line and take off, unfortunately with the chatterbait still attached. Hate to have them swim off like that but it was a hard fish to calm down enough to not get cut up bad, even though by that time it had to have been pretty tired.
  2. I would imagine in Missouri it would probably be mainly a thrill/experience thing. Some of the shows I’ve seen mention eating them but I got a feeling most people wouldn’t be doing that with them here.
  3. Personally feel like it’d be better to let the population grow another 5 or so years. Current estimate is what, 500 or so. That’s still really small number for a state the size of Missouri. Let them make a little more of a comeback before opening a season for them.
  4. Me and a fishing buddy were planning on hitting up Mark Twain Lake sometime next month, but recently someone told me that the boat ramps are about to close down due to the virus situation. Tried to find more info on this and I think I did come across something saying most of the ramps will be closed, but I figured I see if anyone here has any more info about it. Like how long that’s supposed to stay that way and such. Thanks for any info in advance.
  5. Unfortunately I still didn’t make it down there. Maybe next week I will instead.
  6. I work this weekend, otherwise I would’ve been down there today, but I think I’ll go either tomorrow or Tuesday. That said, is anyone down there today, and if so, how is the fishing and the crowd.
  7. I think there’s still a few parts of it that are still kind of nice looking. Some of the area around Unger I think still looks nice for example. Not like some of the big floating stretches but still better than some of the rest.
  8. Wasn’t expecting that stupid photo bucket logo all over the ones I posted.
  9. Beautiful pictures guys. Here’s a few of mine. Will try to get a few more posted. Meramec between Sherman Beach and Castlewood I believe. http:// Red Ribbon section of Meramec between Hwy 8 and the Springs. Castor River Shutins at Amidon Johnson Shutins on the Black River
  10. Wish I could help but unfortunately when I went none of us 3 caught a single crappie though that was what we primarily tried to catch. Minnows, jigs, little crankbaits, all that, and not one crappie.
  11. How do you tell them apart from a smaller white bass. The picture looked a lot like it.
  12. I’m out again as we speak. Guess it’s nice that the phone has service at this spot. Though 7th day at it is really testing my patience to where I’m on the phone way more than I should be. I’d be happy if I get one and it at least doesn’t go more than 10-15 yards before falling back down and dying in short order from the first (and hopefully only) shot. And wouldn’t mind seeing if the bullet opens up with this ammo, and if it stays inside the deer or exits out, too. I’ve only taken 3 deer ever so far, each time I shot at least once more cause I was either surprised that they got back up, or didn’t drop at all, from the first shot. But nowadays I’m thinking 1 definitely didn’t need any followups, and leaning that way in regards to another one. Last one unfortunately did. I’ve seen 7 deer so far this season but each time they’ve seen me first. Feel like I was hitting up good spots but for whatever reason hardly saw any where I thought they‘d be.
  13. Sounds like it got some potential for bigger fish in the deep spots. Either way nice scenery I would imagine.
  14. I've had years when I've seen less than this one, but that's not saying much. Seems like I hardly ever see any. Figure one of these years I'd have a season where I see them frequently, but not looking like it's this season either. I'm hoping to have a clean kill like she did. Except, I'd hope they drop right in their tracks and don't get back up. My rifle caliber is not as potent (7.62x39), but I think my bullet selection this year is better than what I got my first 3 deer with, and in general I haven't got any shots that were all that far anyways. Now I just need to get a shot opportunity to really find out if these rounds do the job as humanely as I hope they do.
  15. I always wanted to float that stretch to see all of it. I've waded the stretches from hwy 8 to cardiac, and cardiac to a bit downstream of suicide, but once I hit a deep section around a bend downstream of suicide, I couldn't figure out a way further downstream. What did you guys do, take 2 cars and drop one off at scott's ford, or did you have someone else shuttle you?
