  1. I have taken a canoe out at Blunks before, I wouldn't think you should have any difficulties. Good luck and let us know how you did!
  2. I'm not a huge fan fan of Shoal even though it is literally a few miles from the house. Although Buzz and I normally float it a couple times a year. We normally go from the pipeline down to mt. malang . We did pretty good last year and it has finally come back down to a descent float level. Looks like you got into some fish!
  3. That looks hot and uncomfortable! Just get a shoulder or belt holster.
  4. I know some monsters have been caught in Alton by the grain elevators. Those catties love the grain as well!
  5. If more people get back to work then the fishing pressure will ease up some. I have noticed WAY more people at the places I normally fish as well. Most of those people don't have anything else going on in their lives right now so they get out more. JMO
  6. My cousin said it didn't surprise him. He used to fish that tailwater all the time and said there were monsters in there just waiting to be snagged. Man those get big over there!

    Largemouth Are On

    I honestly think not many on here fish Grand on a consistent basis to make a report even. If you want a good report on Grand go to FB and sign up for the grand fishing report on there and lots of people contribute to that page. You can thank me later! lol
  8. Depends on long of a float you want to do. If you are looking to float back to 2 sons then you will need to put in at Pineville, Low water bridge, or Mt. Shira. At the bridge you have to pay however to launch because they are pretty strict about putting in or out right from the bridge. Private property around it and all of that. tjm is right about the flow right now. Good float water to fish IMO. I might go down this weekend as well. Just be aware this weekend you will run into LOTS of people on the water. If you have little ones just be aware of the party people on the water. Again, lots of people on the weekend. The lower end after Noel is harder to find anyone to shuttle unless you have your own way. That is a much longer float however. Better in a lot of ways and not in others. Hope we have helped you out.
  9. Pond bass and pit bass got to eat what they can find! nice catch!
  10. Surprised no white caps out on that water! lol
  11. I keep thinking that as well Ham, but Grand seems to never slow down on them and cats. I figured they put a no limit on the whites for a reason down there. It has been no limit on them for at least the last couple of years. I honestly don't know how many years it goes back. I am guessing they feel like they need to cull some of them out of the lake. Cats are also thick as can be from what I keep seeing and hearing about. Although they have a limit on those, but I think it is still like 15. They finally got smart about the crappie and put a length and 15 on them. I honestly don't know how that lake keeps fishing like it does for those species.
  12. I saw a post yesterday of a guy just up from 10c bridge and he was putting the smack down on the whites. Apparently they are still up stream somewhat. But, in general it wasn't anything like it was last year.
  13. The protesting I understand. Plenty of black people have been shot for no good reason. Tulsa, Dallas, Louisville, Baltimore, and now Minn. These are the ones I can think of in the last few years. The rioting and looting are just an excuse for the thugs to steal at will and know they aren't going to get caught.
  14. My son is in the guard and he got called up last night to go somewhere in MO. Something he has never had to do before. I bet he will have some stories for me when he gets back!
  15. Bummer for me I was looking into those rods!
  16. Looked like it was stored inside your house as well! Glad you got it sold.
  17. Funny you posted this. I think my neighbor is about to sell his 119 as well. Although he has done a few more floats in it than that. $140 is a great price! I would have bought it just to have another one at the house.
  18. Snagged, I would almost bet most of them were put in by outfitters. You are right though, I can't say for sure, but tjm knows what I am talking about! I actually talked with someone who floated it on Sunday the day after and he said it was a real somber mood for most people out there. He is very experienced though and said his group didn't have any problems. The trickiest stretch he said was after Indian enters the creek and under the train trestle. He did say the water was moving and he knew a lot of people shouldn't have been on there as well. I won't float Elk unless the CFS is under 1000. Have been on it too many times to know better.
  19. I get it that they are not held responsible and most of them have you sign all kinds of waivers anymore, but still. You know as well as me tjm that most of them around here would rent out a boat to a blind person and wouldn't think twice about it. JMO I know.
  20. So sad, but it seems like every year the Elk claims someone's life. This time it was on Saturday. Apparently the fire and rescue had to perform 21 water rescues that day alone. WTH goes through someone's mind that they have to put themselves in that kind of danger? How many beers made it alright to make that decision? The water was cresting on Saturday from all the rain we had and I know that river was rolling hard and fast. I know people have been cooped up for sometime, but not around there so I don't buy that excuse. This time the person was from Fayetteville and got pinned under a log jam. The one common thing I see in all the drownings on Elk is high water with no business being on the river to begin with. Plain and simple. I'm wondering how many of those rescues were from people renting a yak or canoe from a livery. I hold those places accountable as well since they should know better than to rent to someone during conditions like that. Almighty dollar trumps all of that it seems like.
  21. I wouldn't even attempt the take out at Buffalo creek now. I was down there scouting it out earlier last month and the floods have completely washed out any road into there. Trees down everywhere and dang near impossible to just walk back in there. The only place that I know of for sure to take out is a ramp further down stream, but I don't know if it is private or what. I just know there is one about when you start seeing boat docks and by then you are definitely in OK. The only doable thing is to paddle down and then come back up, but that will be dang near impossible again with the flows like they are. Unless you have a motor of course.
  22. I bet those were a blast to catch on top water! Nice
  23. Our Walmart doesn't carry pistol ammo anymore as well. Pretty sure that was a corporate decision nationwide. Along with the 5.56 and .223, they won't sell those anymore as well. Have you tried SG Ammo online? They are out of Stillwater OK and have a rather large inventory of about anything you want. That is all they do all day long. Sell ammo that is and nothing else.
  24. From the article I read there wasn't really that much to go on. Journalism isn't what it used to be!
