    Jet Boat Safety

    Even after you get to be an old pro and run the rivers all the time you will still have mishaps. Ask any old river runner and they will tell you it is not a question of if only when it will happen. Most of them have many stories about the times they have crashed or ended up high and dry. The rivers change after every flood and things move around a lot. Like everyone is saying boulders are the worse and logs and stump can do damage so try to avoid them. Running shallow many times means you will beach or at least suck some gravel so get use to that. Only way to learn is to get out there and do it. I would say take it slow, but you normally want to stay on plain to run shallow so slowing down is not the best option in most cases. Good luck.

    Winter Crappie Question

    Funny you should say that. I spent yesterday evening powder coating a bunch of jigs heads. They are nice and bright and real pretty. Will do a couple more colors tonight to be ready for this weekend.

    Winter Crappie Question

    This guy knows what he is talking about. He has crappie catching dialed in and consistently catches them most every time out. These were from yesterday morning. (Thanks for taking me Ed). We fished with jigs and did not use any crappie nibbles. Some were under docks and some were near trees and brush near the bank.
  6. After reading this thread I realize I have been very lucky dealing with thrashing whites and hybrids after dark using a crank bait with two treble hooks. Seems like they never stop fighting and thrashing while trying to unhook them. I am now going to make sure I have a new pair of side cutters and a first aid kit in my boat. One thing I have noticed though is I have hooked my paints leg or shorts a few different times while carrying my rods down to the boat because of the hook keepers hooked on the rod. It seems it always results in a torn article of clothing getting the hook back out when that happens.

    Big Bass Bash This Weekend

    i did get out for a while last evening at dark. I did not go after green bass as i thought the wind might fire up the white bass. I was right

    Webb outdoor championship

    Watched Mike catch his fifth keeper right in front on my dock slip as we were talking. I had just asked him how he was doing and he said i got 4 decent keepers and need one more good one. He made a cast and then loaded up and set the hook. Once he got it in the net and in the boat he collapsed on the deck and said "dude that fish might of just won me a 40 grand bass boat. and he said look at me i am shaking like a leaf. i said hope it did. And he did win. That was very cool to see. http://webboutdoors.com/2015-info/central-elite-pro/2017-elite-results/marfell-wins-elite-championship-and-nitro-z19-powered-by-mercury/

    Thinking of winter tricks

    i was thinking of doing this too only with a 3- way swivel. Have a weight on the bottom line and a suspending jerkbait off the other with 18" -24" of leader. I believe the goal would be getting it closer to the bottom and i am thinking having the bait tied on a 3- way might make it act more like it is supposed too.

    Whites, Hybrids and Stripers?

    Wow. I got into some whites and Hybrids last night and now i know why you could get addicted to chasing hybrids. Man talk about a blast. They hit so hard you better be holding your rod tightly as you reel. I had one that was like hooking a freight train. All i could do was hold on and listen to the drag sing as it did circles around the boat. It finally wrapped around the trolling motor and broke off. But i did land a couple along with the whites.

    Whites, Hybrids and Stripers?

    Yesterday with the cloud cover and cooler temps the Whites were blasting shad all over. I started out to fish for Bass and started on a point not far from my place. Within five minutes of being there i noticed the whites blasting shad not far from me. So I fired up the big motor and eased closer then used the trolling motor to get within casting distant and managed to get three nice ones in the boat before they went back down. I then starting random casting a crank bait and got hit a bunch bringing it in but did not connect. A while later i saw another big school doing their thing and tried to get to it, but could not get over to them before they went back down. Saw a few more over the course of the day but got tired of chasing them.
  13. On Ozark streams, I have always considered any smallmouth 15” to 18” a good one. Get a few of those on a trip and you have had a very good day. Anything over 18” is getting to trophy class and 20” and over is a definite trophy for most folks that fish the river occasionally. There are some who fish Ozark stream all the time (like every day) and these numbers would not apply to them. They catch many fish 15” to 19” and hit the 20” mark a few times a year. And I have had many days where all I caught were 10” to 15” and thoroughly enjoy the day. And all of them were released. I did have a replica made of my wife's monster (22") from a few years ago and that is now hanging on the wall.

    Trout for Sale - $4 each!

    Many years ago we used to go to a VFW place down the road from us for fish once a week because the people running it lived in our neighborhood. They had a sign listing prices for the different meals and also for different fish. The sign said cod fish dinner x amount, walleye x amount, crappie X amount, and catfish.x amount, ( i don't remember all the prices). I asked my neighbor one time where they get all the different kinds of fish and he looked around and kind of whispered, it's all the same. people can't tell the difference and we have never have anyone complain.
