  1. In 99 I was 2 years into my new IT career and was also carrying a pager for the big crash that never came. And I was truly happy to be out of the lawn care and landscaping field I had been in for 20 years. No more snow plowing ! I was in a great marriage to a beautiful woman and had 3 kids and I was looking forward to whatever life had in store. And amazingly things have gone better than I could of imagined. I survived two buy outs and I am still employed, although about ready to retire. Two of my kids have graduated college and the third one will this May. And my wife and I are truly in a great place. We bought a house last year in Linn creek and plan on living there after retirement. Life is good.
  2. This past summer we upgraded our swim ladder to a Wet Step and the old ladder was sunk at the back end of one of our boat slips. I also ended up hanging two of the christmas trees off the dock and i plan on setting the other 3 horizontally behind the dock.
  3. I managed to get 5 nice big Christmas trees from a local lot yesterday and now I am thinking about the best way to sink them. I have done it before and i normally cut some branches off to give them some openings between the branches and then tie a line to the top and add some weight to the trunk at the bottom and hang them off the dock. But maybe placing them horizontal would be better? Also it might be better to let them sit for a month or two to dry out and lose the needles? Also might be better to sink two or three together? Create a good size brush pile right behind my dock? I am curious to hear what you all think is the best way?
  4. You too dude. I fished my very first bass tournament as a co-angler with two rods. One had a Ambassadeur 4500 and the other was a zebco 33. I think it was 1975 and i was 18. BASS had a tournament at the Lake and there were a bunch of guys like Roland Martin and no one knew who they were at that time. My "Pro" was a farmer from mid missouri and my tourmament was not fun in his little "bass" boat in March with the wind howling. We were bouncing around while he was trying to run "up the river" and ended up breaking off the trolling motor and it went downhill from there. But i did actually catch more fish then he did. i was throwing a purple plastic worm and he thought i was nuts for fishing a worm in the cold water. After i caught a few including a decent keeper he said you got any more of those worms.
  5. i'll tell you this about main lake points last year, my good buddy who has been fishing there his whole life of 60+ years kept texting me pics last spring of 5lb plus fish saying "man are you getting in on this main lake bite" He said in all his years he had never seen the bite so good for big bass. Based on his pcs i have no doubt it was happening. His place is in Racoon Holler and he would go from there straight to hopping around main lake points and hammer them time after time.
  6. Lake News is reporting today Ameren says they will begin dropping it beginning in January. https://www.lakenewsonline.com/news/20191212/ameren-missouri-begins-winter-drawdown-at-lake-of-ozarks
  7. Nice boat and fish. Also nice that someone is running around the Meramec in a RiverPro now that Hogwally is slacking off running around the country for HD Tackle. I definitely miss running the river and fishing the Meramec in the fall.
  8. Wild story. Be careful out there! https://www.newsweek.com/arkansas-hunter-deer-puncture-wounds-1467449
  9. Saw a post on FB showing one of the boats fishing in the Gravois area this morning. Had the ref and the camera man with him.
  10. Been there done that and that it why i am on my second blazer now.
  11. I don't fish many tournaments but the one BFL i fished at LOTO taught me a lot. As a co-angler i got to watch a pretty good pro do his thing, which was flipping, pitching and skipping his bait around and under every dock he wanted to fish to. I was amazed by how far he could get a texas rigged worm up under a dock and also how consistently he could hit every little opening between the floats. Or under cables and next to piers. It showed me why they are catching fish that most average guys never get a bait to. It was fall fishing and a tough bite but he ended up getting his limit.
  12. I have never hunted ducks but looking at these jigs makes me want to go out shoot some just to send you the feathers and get some jigs back.
  13. I actually pulled up to a main lake point that has big brush pile that is about 15-20 deep and threw my deep running crankbait to come through it and ended up getting 5 fish there and 3 of them were keepers. Every time i felt it hit the brush and come through i would get a fish. There were two guys fishing in a really nice Nitro with dual power poles across the point from me and after i caught those fish they came over slowly and said hope you don't mind we came over but man we had to know what you're doing. They said we been fishing all day and not gotten squat and they were pre-fishing for this Costa tournament this weekend and we are not from around here and said we see you pull up and catch 5. So I showed them the crankbait and we talked a bit and i wished them luck. One thing i know from experience, i could pull up to that point 5 different times and not get anything and then on the 6th time they have decided to feed and they eat whatever is pitched in there and it can be fun.
  14. The four keepers i caught Sunday were all on crainkbaits. I use a deep runner on main lake points and a squarebill around docks. Caught plenty of fish but no money fish.
