  1. They were all over Truman Saturday along with a bunch of pelicans.
  2. Agree. I try to stay between 1.5 and 2 but the wind and waves will slow you down or speed you up and i sometimes think that helps. The changing it up i mean. But right now i think you might have better luck doing what you're doing. Jigs tipped with minnows over deeper brush in coves or shooting docks. I usually save the trolling for July and August when the crappie are chasing shad in the river channels. Right now it is the time of year when crappie follow the shad into the creeks. My neighbor across from me has been standing on the corner of her dock and casting a jig out past a dee
  3. I have read about how animals and insects give off pheromones that relay signals to each other. Like bees when they feel threatened will release the one that signals time to attack and they will come from all over to do it. And deer will flee when one of them senses danger even though the others can be some distant away. And once one of them starts the activity, they all do it. So i would think it would be the same thing with fish. And with them in water, maybe the pheromones work even better.
  4. They do that all the time when we are coving out. My sister said one got her in the back and it left a welt.
  5. Something else to worry about now. https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/state-and-regional/something-bit-me-muskie-bites-angler-in-missouri-first-conservation-department-says/article_0a2558b6-78ef-5ecf-bd1e-9399a7ef3d84.html
  6. Now that i am here full time i troll for crappie often and have it dialed in nicely. This was yesterday's take. Hard to tell from the pic but there are 2-13", 2 -12" and the rest are just about 11". The Flicker shad was the top producer and like usual had a catfish and bass on the flicker shad. One thing i have done on the flicker shad is changed out the hooks. The ones they come with are too small and you miss a lot of fish. Amazing thing about this is i didn't go out till i got off work at 3:15. and quit at 6:00. Trolled in the river channel along the bluffs and got bounced around
  7. I have been trolling for crappie during July and August when the big boats let me and getting some good ones. I always use four rods with a bracket i have set up in the back of my blazer and usually use 300 series bandits and flicker shads. The bandits catch the most crappie, big and small, but the flicker shads catch all kinds of fish, Some big crappie, bass, white bass and catfish. Also got this walleye on the flicker shad last Friday in between the storms. Went a tad over 7lbs. I usually troll the mid lake area around the 30 and got the walleye along a bluff. While i was bringing it in had
  8. Saw pics of some really nice bass being caught this past weekend. 6 and 7 lbers.
  9. Did not see near as many boats this weekend. Cooler weather had the bigger boats staying away and even saw a lot less fishing boats. But the weather did not seem to bother the fish. Seems like the crappie have moved in to spawn. Yesterday evening just before dark I had a nice limit in under two hours standing on the back corner of a dock and making the same cast over and over. i was throwing parallel to the bank and getting hit about 3-4 away from the bank every cast. And that was after bass fishing for a few hours in the morning. Bass are turning on too.
  10. i have this pic from our old river place on the Meramec that i took when i was planting some milkweed for monarchs. In the background is the bluebird house i put up. i think the plan was to show the before and after of the milkweed. The bluebird house had been there a few years by then. i think it was the spring of 2015 when i put it there and a week after setting it in place, there was a pair of bluebirds using it. I remember this because i saw the female going in and out of the house and when i looked, there was a nest in it. A couple weeks after that we had a spring flo
  11. i want from not having it on my old boat and then having it on my new boat and now would not be without tilt and trim. But i had a jet so probably not apples to apples. With the jet with out power trim every time i wanted to pull to the shore i was always worried about sucking gravel or junk into the jet. With power trim i just trimmed it up as i was beaching. i am sure that is the same deal with a prop, but maybe not as important.
  12. That was the one mistake i made when i had mine built- i wish i had gone a little higher with the horsepower. But at the time i did not see me being full time at the lake. I had the river place back then and was only planning on doing the occasional lake trip. Turned out opposite of that. I keep it at the lake and do the occasional river trip. But it is still nice to be able to do either without any issues.
  13. Yeah I have come to love mine and would not be without one. They are a pain when fishing but in the heat of summer or pouring rain it is really nice to sit under.
  14. I posted on here before about how i think i i have the perfect river and lake boat. i ran all over the Meramec for year and ran in some super skinny water with no issues. Now i keep it at LOTO where i use it for all my bass and crappie fishing. Plus ran way up past the swinging bridge a couple of times. Also used it on the White river below Bullshoals dam and on Bullshoals, Table Rock and hauled it up to Canada to fish Rainy lake a couple times. Being an 1856 with the modified V and high sides it handles waves fairly well. And the 90/65 4 stroke is super quiet and i get decent gas mileage. Onl
  15. 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 trul
