    bfishn got a reaction from snagged in outlet 3 in Being Prepared   
    I went there for gas last Saturday, having already given up on TP. On the way to the pumps I saw 2 carts with TP, so, expecting to be disappointed again, I parked and trotted in one more time. The guy was putting the last of several cartons on the rack (most already gone), and I scored a 12-pack of Charmin!
    Never in my life would I have expected to be so happy about something as seemingly trivial as TP. When I was a little farm kid in No. Mo., we still used an outhouse, and I couldn't wait till the latest Sears Roebuck catalog came in the mail so we'd have a new batch of thin paper pages... those slick, shiny pages really sucked!

    Hit four patches. Found some in all places. One produced well and other three just a few. Tally for looking 80 right on the nose. One place had some of the big yellows. Generally it means towards the end to a patch. Man I hope not. I have found giants there during the first part of May and that is a ways off. Strange year for sure.

    When I was around that age Dad would get home from work around 6, load up the boat, and we would get to the Theodosia park around 11,11:30pm. Depending on what time of year it was we would either sleep in the bed of the truck in the camper shell in the ramp parking lot, or launch in the dark and fish till daylight ,go get breakfast at Gigs in Isabella,and then go back out. We would stay a couple,maybe 3 days, usually a weekend trip. When I got tired I just slept on the bench seat of the boat ,or if it was cold, on the floor of the boat wrapped in a blanket. I remember waking up  in the middle of the night soaking wet from dew many times, or from the sound of Dad yelling "GET THE NET BOY!"  
    5 years old is a little young to stay out so long like I had too. But it made me a better fisherman, especially at night  Sometimes we would fish for 12-16 hours straight. Cooler stocked up on food and drinks. 
    By the time I got home I was burned out! 😆 We only made a 3 or 4 trips each year back then. But I still remember many of them. That's what you want your kids to have too is lifelong childhood memories  of fishing with Dad.👍

    Went morel hunting before hitting the  lake, found 17. Got in on the last fifteen minutes or so of a white bite. Caught 6 females and then they either left or got lockjaw cause I couldn't get bit again. Still mad at those bluegill too! They can be picky about colors sometimes. They ignored the hot pink and chartreuse today, but loved the fluorescent orange  and red. 🤔 
    Took home 6  big one's ,9". They all made a decent meal with  the ones from before ,and had a side of some fresh fried morels to go with.

    I got out a world map put it on the kitchen wall, took out some darts and told my wife to throw a dart.  I told her that we would go there no matter where it landed.

    It has without a doubt made a difference in the finding and by watching videos it has also assisted in the catching, but there are and always have been a percentage of the fish that just will not bite and who knows how many lures or baits they have seen and what accounts for this.  I think timing is a key factor.  On another note however as the gentleman told me you might catch one on your first drop into a school but then the others will not touch the bait, either a minnow or a jig. i don't have any idea how to explain this.  I will tell you this has been going on since I started fishing and that's been a while.
    We have spoken about this for years here on Table Rock where the K's will charge a bait either live or artificial and then get there and run from it.  Or, at times you can see them on 2D sonar and as soon as the bait drops they scatter and are gone.  Other times they come at it like they are starved and they might already have 3 shad  in their mouth and a crayfish hanging out of their throat.  I guess what I'm saying is we don't know what triggers them to strike.
    What i do know is if they are already feeding it is much easier to get their attention rather than being in a suspended state weather this be on cover ie like a tree or just suspended using depth for cover.
    What Panoptix is, is a time saver.  It allows you to fish where the fish are.  Not going to promise  you will get a bite but you know they are there and can see how they react to the bait  Watch Mike Bakers current Truman Lake vid on Spider Rigging Crappie,  He made it just last Sunday and to your point he would not have caught some of them without Panoptix as he enticed a lot of strikes by working the bait as the fish watched it or pulled away from it.  Also some would just plain run from it.
    I think as much as the tech has progressed, just the shear number of fisherman that are extremely learned is at an all time high.  With all the knowledge that is available not with standing the electronics it has somewhat changed the game.

    Not here, biking and walking trails are packed, kids out playing baseball, golfers golfing, lakes covered with boats;  motorcycles, vintage cars and convertibles on the roads.  It was in the 80's today, and it was like what you'd see on a warm spring Saturday as far as activity.  I don't know if this is wise behavior in view of the virus situation, but it is what it is.
    I picked up some redworms today, going to see what the bream are up to tomorrow.

    I about lost in in Wal mart this morning,
          Got there just after eight. The Mrs. and I. Didn't even go to the old folks hour at 6 am.  So there is a rather large lady in a Wal Mart scooter up by the self check out. Two mega packs of TP in her basket. Lady there said mam did you see the sign? One package per customer. She replied oh my husband is coming up front and one is his. Ok then.  So we are in there for milk and maybe flour and yeast. So we work our way to the back to get milk figuring that no tp on the shelves. We get to that isle and low and behold that rather large lady made it back there and I have no idea how and pitches out one of the tp mega packs back out of her basket. Husband is back there with more in his cart. I figure par for the course in our little town. Plenty on the shelf actually so we grab a pack and head for the milk. Then we go to the isle with baking goods. Guess what that rather large lady in the scooter is there her poor husband in tow. His head is hanging pretty low. We walk to the flower and yeast area. Oh no here she comes. Singles us out. What are you looking for? We were hoping to find some flour and yeast. She gets rather loud. Them #$%^& ^#*(@ Amish came in and took everything they could find. Didn't leave nothing for the rest of us. I grab a small bag of flour and begin to turn around. Again in a loud voice. Those $%$^@@#&  ^&*(!@#  Kansans are worse than the Amish. They are over here buying our stuff. WE should close that border! 
           It was all I could do to keep my big mouth shut. Bit my tongue and left with her still spouting off. Note Store is pretty well stocked with most items. Even canned goods.
