  1. New brand of bass boat??

    Spoke with a gentleman about a Ranger 198P aluminum for my kids to start learning to run.... He's seven miles from the Ranger factory and as he was pricing a boat I asked him about the "rumor" of a new company and he said "they're doing the ribbon cutting as we speak". I wondered aloud how many current employees at Ranger may jump ship and go to the other side and he said it's already happening. Not sure that means much to Ranger, but.......Should be good times around Flippin. I hope they are successful and open the market up. Never was a fan of complete control over any one type of product. It will be neat to see another brand and style.
  2. Fizzing?

    Not seen this before. Interesting. Does the hook just pull free after he fights or line break? No doubt been used many times, but in my naïve state hadn't seen or heard of it. Whatever method as long as it's effective. Wonder if you could use a small crappie hook and bend the barbs down? As far as tournaments.... fished many in my life and have come to conclusion that a two or three fish limit might be the best alternative other than going MLF at the boat.
  3. The lake be dropping

    Hope they drop it to 900'..... makes for better arrowhead hunting, err, uh..... I mean looking for lures with the kids. Ya, that's what I meant, lure hunting. It also helps those of us who put out brush piles and rock piles. Hoping to set up a "dump bed" on the beater pontoon I have for putting piles out. It would be nice to have a hydraulic set up somehow, just need to figure out the mechanical side. 906' last year for sure. Google earth has a photo from space with us putting piles out on the James. The lengths people will go to in order to find your brush/rock piles! Down and side imaging isn't enough they have to monitor you from a satellite now.
  4. Fizzing?

    Curious...... with all of the reports of fish being 40' + deep..... how well do they do after bringing them up from those depths? I know the deep crappie right now swell up like a football and can hardly get back down even with immediate release. I've always tried to bring bass/crappie up slow, but even with my best intentions they often swell up and have to resort to "fizzing" if needed. Curious what you folks are experiencing with the deeper fish.
  5. On the edge.

    Baseball, soccer, Girlscouts, and now basketball with two kids........ I haven't been since May or June. Not sure I can back one down the ramp at this point. I dearly love my kids, but dang Tomorrow? get off the ramps I'm coming in and I'm off ALL next week. Do I pass on the left or right of oncoming boats? What's that switch thing I'm supposed to wear? and most importantly..is it stick bait season?
  6. What's up with that?

    I use the SuperGlue Liquid and have the same issues, but...... I open it put a drop on without touching the tip on anything, tap the bottom of the bottle several times on a hard surface, put the lid on as quickly as possible and keep it upright. Seems to help. I've been told Gorilla gel works well and I've used it and not had many issues. I keep 2-3 brand new bottles of Super in the boat at all times.
  7. Tournaments galore

    With so many tourneys it looks like the Missouri Department of Conservation would consider enforcing a three bass rule. There are a few tournaments that have a ten fish limit! Not a 100+ boat tournaments, but even if it's 30-40 boats......ten fish, really? Three fish would be a step in the right direction.
  8. Table rock help

    For 30 pounds of fresh gulf shrimp and 6 doz oysters, I would let you use all of my tackle, boat and have my wife cook you lunch and dinner while you're here...................on second thought.....you can't use the boat.
  9. Ski boat encounter

    Good for him and you. Courtesy goes a long way in all of our lives. If everyone would take a breath, be grateful and courteous we could all live better lives. My petty problems are nothing compared to what others are experiencing. Sounds like a boater who is trying to do the right thing.
  10. Launching in Eagle Rock area question

    Do it one time, ONE TIME, one stinking time and you're remembered FOREVER!
  11. Table Rock Buoy Removal and Massive Boat Wakes

    I just clicked on the link and it brought it up.
  12. Buzzbait prep.

    We make our own with a do-it mold that has a keel on it. They track fairly straight and surprisingly don't roll too bad when you hit cover. We use a couple different blades, but the blade with the holes seem to work well. My 12 year old and I have a blast fishing them on Stockton and TR. MAN I LOVE FALL FISHING and it's just around the corner.
  13. Buzzbait prep.

    In the 70's, my dad taped them to the top of the tailgate. People used to look at us like we were nuts. Lost a few to the tape coming loose and you had to pay attention to how long you left them on.
  14. Table Rock Buoy Removal and Massive Boat Wakes

    Two things that stick out in the article..... and both, OF COURSE, involve money in the pockets of both Blunt and the Tri-Lakes Board of Realtors. 1. "The Tri-Lakes Board of Realtors is leading an effort to halt the shoreline plan revisions." 2. Per $$$Blunt.... "The plan imposes, with little justification, excessive restrictions on the use of the lake. These restrictions will have long-term, negative impact on the community and the lake economy." Mr. Blunt, what do you say to the people who live on the lake that have their property destroyed because of the chaos that your "policy" of LOZ 2.0 is and will cause? What do you say to the families who can no longer use the lake because they can't afford a $120,000+ cruiser to keep up with the chaos? What do you say to those who have been injured or will be injured because of the massive wakes your LOZ 2.0 policy has and will bring? What do you say about the actual shoreline being destroyed by the massive wakes? What do you say to the Missouri Water Patrol who have their hands completely full of rude, drunk, obnoxious fools in their $120,000+ cruisers and wake boats? Mr. Blunt, in 2010 a study was completed stating that TR would soon be overrun with chaos if restrictions are not placed on the lake. The study told YOU in 2010 that your policy would endanger and restrict many people from enjoying the lake. The Corps of Engineers is paying attention to the chaos that is LOZ 2.0 and they read the study from 2010. Where are you in regards to the chaos? That's right, filling your pockets! Mr. Blunt, I would like to personally invite you to share in the beauty of TR lake on July 4th, 2018 and treat you to a boat ride in a 22' (because 21' just isn't big enough anymore) Ranger bass boat. I will pick you up at the Chateau on the Lake at 11:00 a.m. A light lunch will be provided. We will cruise past Indian Point on our way to Shell Knob so you can understand just how meaningful your policies are. YOU can enjoy the tranquility, beauty and peace that has become TR. I will provide wine, cheese, crackers, caviar, cigar and a barf bag so you can get the full effect. We will be stopping on several points along the way to fish a drop shot, jig and topwater (if cloudy enough). I suggest you wear a mouth piece and a cup (or at least a jock strap) for the cruise. Thank you again sir for leadership and I look forward to a wonderful day on Table Rock Lake with you. I encourage EVERYONE TO SHARE THE STORY ON FACEBOOK and include your comments on just what a "hands off policy" will do to TR. Encourage and praise the Corps and Water Patrol for trying to restore some sanity as they work so hard to prevent TR from becoming LOZ 2.0. Facebook it and share your thoughts!
  15. Spotted/Kentucky Food Fish

    Sorry Vernon....he was a short stop not an outfielder. He played a short time for KU before getting picked up by the Dodgers. Will be up your way this October going to Midnight Madness. Some of the best memories I can't seem to remember were spent at KU. I think. Thankful/lucky I didn't get any "seed tics" then, or did I, I can't remember. What happened at Watkins Student Health Center stayed at Watkins.
