    First time drawing Weldon but have done Busch a few times. Same deer heard and yes I agree, most spookiest deer around. I've seen Busch bucks do things that still keep me up at night contemplating my own sanity!

    I got drawn for the managed hunt at Weldon Spring late season. Gonna reschedule my vacation time for that hunt instead.

    Not for the faint of heart. This is the shortened version.

    Thanks for the info fellas. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, I've been forced to cancel the trip. I have been putting in a lot of miles on my mountain bike to get in shape for this trip. Well a loose rock trail I was riding on this past Monday gave out from under me and sent me sliding down a ravine. Fell 20 feet and landed on a rock outcrop. Broke 2 ribs, partially collapsed my left lung, and had a slight concussion. Don't remember the fall or anything till I was in the ambulance. Did get it all on my GoPro. It's weird having 15 mins of video of me disorientated, but still conscious and talking that I have no recollection of. I'm off to a good recovery and returned back to work today, earlier than expected. Luckily WY allows tag $ refunds for medical issues. There's always next year!

    Just caught my biggest ever!

    Awesome fish! Great job with the landing and release!

    I'm headed to WY Sept. 29th till Oct. 7th to hunt unit 78. I have tags for antelope and an antlered deer. Hoping to tag my first Mule deer buck. Although main objective is to hunt, I want to spend some time fishing the N. Platte river. I'll be focusing on the section from the Colorado border north to Saratoga, and will be bringing a flyrod and a lightweight spinning rod. Looking for any pointers on best access points, guides to look up, flies/lures/jigs to bring, maps to purchase or any other general advice that would help. Thanks in advance for any info provided!

    Saw a Pygmy while turkey hunting Table Rock this spring. Kinda nerve racking knowing I was sitting on the ground in the dark near one.

    For $100 I'd go with a Bass Pro Shop Pro Qualifier or look for a used Diawa Tatula off Ebay.

    Sculpin colored jig from the drawer at Phil's shop. Can't remember which size it was.

    Took an hour to pick me up but the fare was only $11 bucks. Cool cabby who is the lead singer/guitarist in a cover band and gigs at the local bars. Gave him a $20.
  11. https://youtu.be/Y7VHAPY6HQw Locked my kayak up by the dam this morning then drove the truck to Coopers Creek and parked it at the ramp. Caught a taxi back.This was a great idea btw. Hit the water around 10am. No generation. Paddled up towards the cable and began throwing a sculpin colored jig under a float. Missed a good hit first cast. Second cast I hooked this brown, which ended up being my pb and was right at 20 inches. Got it on video. My GoPro was acting up and skips a few times. Floated and fished back down to Coopers creek once generation started and most of the algae had washed through. Picked up a few rainbows on the way down, but catching that brown trout first fish of the day led to more of a leisure float with me smiling the whole way.

    Boats out yet?

    Yes, they’re out.

    Wow! Awesome fish and post! That looks like the trip of a lifetime! Have yet to ever chase smallies outside of MO. I need to drag my rear out of an Ozark stream for once and plan a pilgrimage up north. I'd be grinning for a month after a trip like that.
  14. Such good info in this thread. First off thank you to all who have contributed. With all these veteran cranker's chiming in, I'd love to hear what everyone's preferred setup is for cranking ww's/rc's. Same line and gear ratio for both?
