  1. I'll take it. Sent you a pm.
  2. I'll take the reel.  Let me know how to pay.  I'm in KC.

  3. As long as your informed going in you can manage expectations. The never apologizing part I completely respect.
  4. Well what could go wrong there... Preciate everyone's responses, couldn't get the deal done, so I'll be fishing out of my tin for the foreseeable future. Tom at Championship called my right back yesterday.
  5. Corp report on Truman Dam https://www.lakeexpo.com/boating/the_lake/truman-dam-rated-potentially-unsafe-in-new-engineering-study/article_a68ae274-3f93-11e9-b736-dfcc886fcec1.html#utm_source=Daily News Lake Alert&utm_campaign=%2Fnewsletters%2Flists%2Fheadlines%2F%3F-dc%3D1551911416&utm_medium=email&utm_content=read more
  6. Looking to take rear bench seat out of Reata 210 fish and ski, so as to open up the cockpit to be more fishing friendly. Idea is to configure it with jump seats something similar to the Lund Pro V Bass. Any recommendations of a good shop that can tell me if it's feasible and what it would cost?
  7. Know of a 2 boat crew that caught 5 over a weekend early this May. They were throwing big inline spinners. All were caught early in the day. Conversely, I was at state park marina Saturday afternoon of Muskie Tournament last year, not sure how many boats they had, but at time I talked to a local muskie guide, the entire field hadn't measured a fish.
  8. Fixed that sinkhole. https://www.agfc.com/en/news/2018/07/18/spring-river-danger-resolved/
  9. Rental. Would have been more fun/comfortable in mine.
  10. I’m sure bass pro will refund it. I’ll give them a pass on the bail, you had any binding issues when wet? This afternoon, other than wobble, because ot was broke, it was smooth.
  11. I've had a preference for Stradics over last 20 years or so, and have not had some of the problems that I read about on the net, but wanted to try something different, and more economical, so I bought a Pflueger Supreme size 30 day before yesterday, paired it with a med lite 6' 6" fast taper rod and went to the Elk. 2 hours into float I feel a wobble during retrieve, look down, the bail arm had broken where it attaches to rotor, opposite side of line take up. Have no idea how it happened, didn't drop it, didn't bang it against yak. Can't think of what caused it. I used it for a while longer by carefully opening bail and repositioning broken arm before casting. It reeled very smoothly...until it got wet, then it was rough as a cob. Luckily I had a standby. Actually I have several stand by's, just can't stand the sight of a rod without a reel. How bout Daiwa???
  12. Floated Elk for first time yesterday. Did the 8 mile float down to Sandy Beach. Friend and I caught 45 smallies, 2 lm, and 2 goggle eye over 8 hours of fishing. Thinking next time we do the 5 mile float. Lots of dinks with half a dozen14-16" fish. Everything on soft plastics. I quit picking up beer cans out of river after first mile. Ran out of room on the yak. Sad.
