    POTUS

    Ahead of Flo making landfall, I understand that he and Melania jetted down to Mara-A-Lago to work on his paper towel toss. After Maria hit Puerto Rico . . . . there was some talk within the GOP about how poor his accuracy with the Bounty was.

    POTUS

    Nice! I would like tickets. Would even purchase stones (for throwing) at obscene vendor prices if not allowed to bring our own into the venue. Are you bringing vegetables, rotten eggs, fouled meat, dirty undies to throw? I got a Stormy Daniels Penthouse 2004 copy . . . can you get it signed for me? Hopefully that is allowed at least.

    58 pound Bull Shoals Striper

    Paul Dallas caught it on a willow-leaf spinnerbait under a 3-inch diameter red and white plastic bobber.

    Beef tongue

    Beef tongue

    This is a disgrace and I feel a certain kind of outrage, . . . . . thou I must look for it . . . . A tongue shall not be consumed no more-est thou than a tongue shall be silenced. Even if thou consideration is as livestock , , , reasonable gentlemen, and even rough cut men will not partake so willingly of such organ, right? Like the down flake of snow, the seasoning salt doth fall upon this tender instrument of voice?? Speaking in tongues?? No, eating in tongues!! Poor taste among buds, as you consume THE taste buds??!!!! You care not a lick, while you consume the licker, and in your arrogant glee even swallow with liquor!! I render you as savages, the whole lot of you!!

    Kayaking

    Pretty scary story there trout4me. Glad you were there to rescue. That could've ended very wrong. Brent - if you are new to kayaking, then I would say upper Taney is probably NOT a good idea. Much more narrow up there, more boat traffic for sure than the lower end, and the wakes from big boats as trout4me says, will easily flip even experienced kayakers. Very high consequence water as Gavin said, especially if water running, ICE cold water will suck the strength out of you in seconds.

    Kayaking

    I've canoe'd it a couple times. Gavin is right. Also, early morning and evening fog is a concern. Make sure you are visible to other boats.

    Nighttime Brown Trout

    Is this happening at the outlets? I've seen this happen at Maramac Springs when they are feeding the fish in the hatchery, I think a few pellets make its way through, and it starts a feeding frenzy in the fishing water immediately below. Also when they are cleaning the pens.
  9. Enjoyed reading that adventure. Thanks for sharing.

    2 drownings at Castlewood

    While the Meramec is full of snags and hidden under-water dangers, just like any other rivers of similar size flow . . . . I'm guessing that out of the 14 drownings that occurred there at Castlewood . . . . . at least 12 were people who didn't know how to swim. They see people wading ankle and waist deep and think they are safe. They get a little bit overconfident and wade further downstream and then hit some loose gravel at a drop-off ledge . . . . their footing gives and slides out from under them, and panic ensues. Someone who also cannot swim attempts to rescue and they drown as well. Probably not entangled in a strainer at that spot, but I'm just guessing.

    Salmon River Epic

    Neat shots. Will have to look into this trip. Would make a nice birthday for my wife to give to me. 😀

    Rare experience

    That would bug the crap out of me if I was fishing and a drone started hovering. Maybe a large sign that says, You got 10 seconds to get that out of here or out comes Mr. Winchester.

    Larry Dablemont Article

    Did I miss a good fight here? Don't have energy to read 10 pages, but somehow I want to weigh in. 😀

    A word about Kayaks

    Not sure you'd want to put 500 lbs in a Disco 119 . . . . and the Osagian and Lowe Line are both aluminum battleships, eh? For a feller of your husky proportions, I'm thinking you can find much better canoe options than any of those 3 . . . . and without having to build a trailer to haul it. I'd look at Old Town or Wenonah. There are several good 16 and 17 foot tandem canoes that can be paddled solo and are also light enough to easily cartop transport.

    A word about Kayaks

    Generally speaking, yes. Exception being that there are solo canoes that are narrow and super-light enough and can be paddled exceptionally fast with a double bladed paddle that will scoot along just as well as many kayaks . . . but then the distinction between kayak and canoe starts to get blurry. Fast and fishing are two words than can contraindicate in my opinion. One must allow for observance of nature and beer consumption.
