  1. indeed my friend, I try to give an accurate and honest report even if i sucked
  2. I would like to follow this up if that is okay. I was there last week for the entire week, saturday thru sunday. I've fished Taney for 30+ years and multiple trips a year and I honestly thought the trout fishing was as tough as I have ever seen it. The last two thanksgivings i'm pretty sure they haven't stocked (atleast not down lake). The previous thanksgivings up until the last couple years they put tons of fish in. I heard from alot of different people that it was as tough as they had ever seen it so I didn't feel terrible bad. Regardless it was tough enough that I went down river and had quite a week on the bass. I was averaging a dozen nice bass in a 2 hour morning. I posted some pictures in the Lower Taney forum. I did run to the cable one day for trout and caught several nice ones but it was alot tougher than I was used to and the lower lake trout bite was non existent for some reason. Even the fish house which is about the easiest place on the lake to find them usually I had a hard time getting a hit. I threw jigs only when trout fishing. Hate to report a bad report or that I sucked but just wanted to give an honest report from myself. Boy we had a great week though for bass fishing and family time and that's what is most important. I took my 8 year old daughter on the trail up by the hatchery one day and that was a blast. There are some really cool hiking trails in the Branson area!
  3. My kind of black Friday!
  4. It was a good run this morning in the rain. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
  5. Been a pretty good week so far from Rockaway down. When it's warm I can't catch crap but the cold days have been pretty good!
  6. I'm really curious about that week of thanksgiving as well! It looks to me like it's dropping around a half foot a day and if that held true we would be at 915 towards the middle of next week. But who knows what that level will do with Beaver.

    I make "crab" cakes out of crappie and catfish alot. I have several places over run small crappie. I just filet them out, boil them and put them in the fridge. Then crumble them up and make a "crab" cake out of them. They turn out very well that way.
  8. looks like it washed out or almost washed out part of the road across from the branson landing last night and snapped a power pole.
  9. dude that's no joke. i think my bow was $610 or something like that. i think it would of been like 200 bucks cheaper to do a skin mount but it wasn't worth killing the fish to me. i'm scared to think how much your brown mount was but hell it's worth it with all the time and effort we have put in to catch these fish.
  10. wish i would of seen his work in person, i bet his shop is really cool. how about you get a bow big enough to take to him this year, and i'll get a brownie and then we can each have one of each?
  11. Those look awesome man! What a story and big beautiful brownie!! Don did an unreal job on my rainbow replica last year too. His work is stunning and i was thrilled with mine as well!

    you can buy an insulated blanket for the Traeger but truthfully i've never had to use one. I've used them in single digits before with no issues. They have "P settings" which allows you to change what smoking temp you use based on the conditions like air temps and wind. mine sets on a covered deck but is 100% exposed to wind and cold temps and i've never had an issue at all. hope that helps some?
