    nice indeed, one of yours bud?
  4. are there any maps for the lower part of taneycomo from fall creek down? all i can seem to find is the upper maps.
  5. off topic but this is why we have the general discussion board rite. is anyone going to go see the rolling stones in st louis? if you like classic rock and havent had the chance to see theese guys yet go do it! i got to see them at soldier field in september and it was way better than i ever expected . the tickets were pricey yes but worth it to see the greatest rock band ever. ok if you dont want to get bent over by ticket master heres what i found out from some of the folks that seem to know what they are talking about dont buy the tickets till your there, ya buy em from scalpers its cheaper from the number of posts ive seen on the stones fan club site i belong to also get them from the box office close to show time.....they will have extras and dont want to eat them so ask if they have any deals. ive seen as much as half off of face value that people have gotten from the scalpers like i said they dont want to eat the whole cost if they have tickets and will be getting rid of them cheaper and cheaper as show time comes up so if your in the area go ahead and try it out if you get in you wont be dissapointed. im planning on heading down there for the show and trying the scalper thing(god and wife permitting) ticket master got me once they wont do it again !!!!!!!!!!!! if anyone plans on going maybe we can hook up for a brewski before the show
  6. thanks for the reply and advice leonard i will check them out next time im out at the store.
  7. we get down there once a year and love it, if you are fishing for food and some action try some power eggs from berkley(make sure your outta the trophy waters) on one of the taney drift rigs found at all the resorts down there. i use the single hook rigs not the trebles. if i remember right last year we tore em up on 2 bubble gum eggs on the hook and one white one threaded on the line about 1-3 inches up from the hook. we found it best to float from fall creek to downtown branson after the old r.v. park area the action kinda thinned out for us. also we found lil cleos to be decent when the water was running along the outside banks from fall creek down a lil ways. we tied off/anchored and fished different cover we seen along the way. not drift fishing but maybe something you might want to try. hope that helps some good luck!
  8. sounds like ya caught a sampler platter bud lol glad you finally got out there man
  9. well i found out that jet boats arent that good on big water and thats the info i need to know, do they act like jets skis i guess kinda stall out when u hit a wave? ill probly end up with a tracker model with a 50 on it or something but i was wondering about the jet boats.
  10. glad to hear your feeling ok leonard. my dad had that opperation years ago and man they gave him a zipper and he was laid up a while in the hospital. they must have come a long way on that opperation. hope you have a quick and full recovery. dad says he can eat anything since hes had the gall bladder removed, the only thing is it doesnt stick with ya very long i guess lol
  11. my father had accupuncture done around 4 weeks ago and i had it done yesterday. dad hasnt smoked since, he was at 2-3 packs a day and ripped the filters off of most of them hes been a smoker since the mid 70's and man im really glad he quit. me on the other hand im not doing to hot its just a matter of will power i gues because i dont really have a craving for it its just hard to kick the habbit of doing it. ive had about 8 cigs the last 2 days not bad from 2 packs of reds a day but still havent quit...need to. anyway just throwing it out to yas if some of your are looking for help it was 90 dollars for 2 days of theropy. and if my dad can do it anyone can including myself ill get there eventually i hope lol. i had 3 needles in each hand and he did some very low voltages things on my ears something to help out with the cravings. after he stuck me with the needles i laid there adn listened to calming music mixed with outdoor sounds like water and stuff like that for about 30 minutes and then he did the things with my ears. the 2nd day was the same but not for as long. none of it hurt and i do think it helped. i had it done at a chiropractors office. hope it helps yall out. you have to want to quit i will say that much. i will let you all know how my progress goes
  12. will the classes run through summer? i wont get down there till august but i do plan on attending a class if they are still goin on.

  14. 15 fish not bad leonard espescially if they were hitting that soft, wish i coulda joined ya and thanks for reporting
  15. good luck on what would probly be the fishing trip of a lifetime for most of us. like phil said be safe and take tons of pics. enjoy!!!
  16. boy i wish i could leonard, if i left now id probly be able to meet ya about 3:30 am lol any way go tear em up and have a good time man report how ya did ofcourse. goodluck!!!
  17. wow those are some good deals, ill probly be ordering some soon
  18. ive owned 2 pairs of oakleys in the past one pair was stollen and well the other pair is at the bottom of table rock lol like 10pointer i definately recomend straps on em from experiance. i just havent been able to get myself to buy another pair of em. i stick with the wal mart $15 deals usually. i did buy a pair of $35 glasses this last year and you can tell the difference between 15 and 30 dollar glasses so you generally get better the more ya spend. while i would like to get another pair of oakleys and would recomend them i just cant stomach losin another $100+ set of glasses. any kind of polarized fishing glasses are beter than none so if all ya can afford is the wal mart specials by all means get them.
  19. hey thanks all for the help appreciate it. heres another one for ya's ok i know you have the fly line, a leader and a tippet ...what is a tippet and do you need it, its just another leader isnt it? also backing is xtra fishingline behind the fly line rite? can ya tell im a newbie lol
  20. guess the fish were bitin a lil last weekend here is a link to the only site i know of with mark twain info on it. weve had a bit of a warm winter so far dont know if it will last but if it does a few more weeks my but is gonna head up ther to try my luck. its been hit and miss for me at twain im no pro and mainly fish for enjoyment of it. i use live minnows and jigs when i go ans sometimes a combo of both. there is tons of standing timber, i can usually get one off of every cpl of trees when they are in em. havnt really tried the main lake for them my boat is a lil small for running all over the place. there are decent number of tournements on twain through the fishing months mostly bass i believe but there are a few crappie events on the lake as well. besides bass and crappie ive seen some monster cats taken from there as well. its a corps lake so there are no private docks and no private houses on the lake. they do have some nice camp grounds. in my opinion if you arent fishing there really isnt much to do around the twain area with the acception of 4th of july when there is a decent rodeo over at the dam area of the lake. so when i go up there it usually includes a trip to quincy illinois one of the nights. about 45 minutes away from monroe city. there is a great pizza place called tower pizza and mexican best pizza ive ever had. and there are a few other things around quincy to do after dinner. gamemasters is like a mini bass pro shops and usually i get to spend about a hour in there depending on my wife lol if your into gambling there is a casino a lil farther away but not much farther.there is also hannibal missouri home to mark twain and a buch of historicle sites thats a good 25-30 minutes back east of monroe city. i havent got up there yet this year but i figured id throw some stuff on here since phil was kind enought to give me a spot on here for a lake that is a lil closer to me. by the way there is a lake honeywell about 20-30 minutes from monroe city that missouri game and fish magazine had as one of the possible producers of a new state record bluegill. went there one time but the weather wasnt cooperating with us so we couldnt fish it. you have to either rent one of there boats and put your own trolling motor on it or paddle the boat yourself other than bank beating. hope this helps a lil, more to come when i get up there. any questions ask away i will try to answer if i can http://www.cannondam.com/fishingreport/
  21. hey brian could ya put a trolling motor on that or would the battery be to much weight? if i lived down there i would definately have a lil pontoon boat like that myself.
  22. firemedjoe, i purchased a 6'6'' browning IM7 challenger combo from bass pro last summer on our anual branson vacation and i love it its a med hvy but has great sensitivity and a lighter action tip it seems to me compared to my other med hvy rod.
