  1. The best part was watching her swim away.
  2. Decided to go make a few casts after work below the Springfield lake dam in hopes of catching a few bass. I was throwing a pb&j double tail grub and I caught a small bass right off the bat. Keep in mind I'm using a 6 ft rod with 6 lb test. A few casts later I feel the hardest pull on my rod I have ever felt in my life. I loosened the drag and let er run. Every time the fish would turn I would try to make up ground. After about 15 minutes of this and being almost spooled multiple times, the fish got tired. I had no idea what was on the line, I just knew it was huge! I very carefully and slowly tightened the drag and started to haul her in. With the assistance of a nice fella I landed the behemoth. I was blown away. By far the biggest fish I have ever caught. Snagged him in the tail and my lure fell out as soon as I got him in. I still can't believe it. What a great evening. After a few photos I watched her swim away to fight another day. Yes! I love Missouri fishing. I wouldn't wanna live anywhere else.
  3. I'm my experience when I get frustrated I suck bad at fishing. We all do our best when we are relaxed and using baits we are familiar with I think. Just keep in mind that even if you get skunked, it's still WAY better than being at work. If you approach it carefree I think you will catch more fish. And don't bring bananas. I learned that the hard way.
  4. The water was running just under 900 cfs on our float. Water was a but murky but not too bad. By the end of Saturday after all the rains the river crested around 9000 cfs. As of now it's 2910 and falling so I'm sure it's pretty muddy now but I haven't seen the river since. Should be good in a few days.
  5. Put the canoe in with minnmofishbro at about 8:30 AM with partly cloudy skies. Started out fishing a copper tube hitting structure on the bank all the way to the hwy 14 bridge with 0 luck. Not even a bite. Time to think different. I knew the fish were there somewhere but as learned from Ryan Walker, water was falling and I do believe that makes the fish act weird. I switched to a pb&j double tail grub and started working the edges of rapids and the back flows below riffles. They were in the moving water and you had to fish fast for some reason to get a hit. Didn't catch anything huge but we had a nice day. Found a few chunk rock spots that were holding a lot a goggle eye. Caught tons of those towards the end of the float. I love catching those dudes. The way they fight is very unique. Big fish of the day pic included. All fish were returned to be caught another day. Free. The. Fighter.
  6. Homey don't play dat is a very regularly used phrase in my family!!
  7. I was throwing purple minnows, white, chattruese, orange grubs, small crank, and a small spoon. Basically everything I could think of. The agent was a man in his 40s or 50s. Real nice guy. I have Thursday off and I'm debating going back or trying something else.
  8. I fished Orleans and Taylor both yesterday for about 4 hours walking the banks and I didn't even get a bite. Only saw one fish caught the whole time. Got my liscense checked by a conservation agent. Good to see those guys out and about doing their jobs.
  9. Nice fish. Me and the old lady threw all kinds of stuff around the bluffs by the playground. I hooked one for about 3 seconds and that was it. Need to get my boat out there and invest more time in that lake.
  10. JerryS and myself will be there. I will bring junk food. I have a buddy that runs a snack cake route. I have a feeling his truck is gonna get robbed!
  11. Jerry s and myself should be available both days. But I like 4/22 the best. Good call Quill.
  12. The forecast up here in Springfield is not looking good. I think it would be a good idea to reschedule. I wanna fish this so much but it's looking like it could possibly be bad.
  13. Myself and Jerry S will be there. I've been an angler my whole life, but this will be the first tourney I've ever fished. Can't wait.
  14. My boat is an all aluminum 10 footer with a bps 30 lb. trust trolling motor. It was made in the late fifties early 60s and was given to me by my father when I was 10. Top speed 5.3 mph.
  15. Yea I want info...
