    March trips

    Quick report. Out 3x last month. March 15th pulled brooders in PC. Screen full of bait & fish. 3 guide boats kept me company.1-14# striper. Nothing else. didn't see any other hook ups. Brutal wind, wt 48. March 18th, back in PC North wind even worse, Marked nothing. Out yesterday. Water temps skyrocketed to 55-58. Muddy water. scratched out 3 bass, 2 eyes, (1-14" crappie, still prespawn). All on 3.3 Keith, white w/ chartreuse tail. All caught 1st 100 yards in Ventris. Glorious day to be out inspite of stiff wind.
  2. Not in love with BP but mostly because of out of stock issues. That said, the Cabela's in Rogers was much worse before becoming a hybrid. BP has doubled the size of the fishing area and yes plenty of it is their own brand but many more rods and reels than before, and the electronics selection is much greater. I agree the fly dept. is lacking. I tie flys and they are out of most everything I go there for. How can they not carry Spro? Cabela's never carried Dixie spoons. I guess the days of the $50 Pro Qualifier bait cast reels are over too. Any thoughts on the BP brand outboard oil? Half the price of other brands with same specs. JMO
  3. I've been on the forum for 5 years. I live on Beaver with a slip so that is where i fish. Certainly not an easy lake but this forum taught me a lot in the beginning. Most of the frequent reporters are gone. I learned how to striper fish from Fin&feathers and his antics with doc were fun reading and informative. DanTF was another I learned from. I'm not sure why they have stopped posting but perhaps they got dogged for their reports. Anyway I try to report as I can. October tornado took a lot out of me and I haven't fished since. But trying to get the fire started again. Good luck to all and thanks to Lance & Quill and those who do report.
  4. No Kobe hate here. Sad he went so young, seemed like a good guy. Just commenting on what makes you famous. Two of my favs were Ernie Banks & Walter Peyton, just as great players, just as good men. Memorials didn't fill a stadium with singing & dancing. Enough from me, lets go fishin'.
  5. A real hero and yet no fan fare, no celebrity posts, and sadly no mention on the news that I saw. If only she had played for the Lakers too. Our priorities sometimes seem odd. Just sayin".

    Polar Bear

    Wow! 18#+ sounds like a mighty good day!
  7. Hey Dan, good to hear from you. Glad to see the boat is getting a workout. Is that middle pic a Wiper? Right shape but solid lines. Haven't seen many since they stopped stocking them. Nice fish!

    question

    Really interesting thread. Every few days I go back to the first post and smile reading how it has evolved. Guess not many of us are fishin' lately. So my 2 cents from an old guy: Having "faith" to me means believing in something that can't be seen or proven. I have no problem with science as to me that is just another good thing created by God. Each generation strays from the principles and beliefs of their parents. Not really poor parenting, just different outside influences. Us "Boomers" were influenced by TV. Our parents were not. Think about our TV. The good guys always won. The policeman was a good guy and caught crooks. That is the belief system we had impressed on us at a young age. Not so today. Our kids were born into the internet influence. My grand kids(10) are growing up with video games,(ever watch 5 minutes of Grand Theft Auto?), and social media. Remember we grew up with "Sticks and stones ...but words will never hurt you". Now kids kill themselves over "tweets" . As our age group dwindles, we will become more annoyed by everything if we let ourselves. I choose to fondly recall the past, embrace the present and hope for the future. Schools do a terrible job, in my opinion, teaching history. My teen grandkids look at some pics/medals from Vietnam and ask "who were you fighting". But just think, a history class has only so much class time and another 60 years of history to teach. The Civil War gets very little attention in most schools. WW2, How many current students can speak of a family member who fought in any US war? My last rant: What ever happened to "look both ways before you cross the street" . Driven through a Walmart parking lot lately? Peace to all and Merry Christmas!
  9. What were the results of the striper tourney out of PC last Saturday? I got whomped by the tornado and will be clearing trees for some time. Just wondered how it went.Thanks!
  10. LOL! The absolute best description ever.
  11. As you see there is no "right" answer to your question. While I've never guided professionally, I have taken business clients fishing back up north. I tried to have plan A and plan B and ask them what they would prefer, casting, live bait or trolling. Since moving to Rogers 5 years ago, and being blessed with fishing that mystery lake named Beaver, I've had many friends come down to fish. I'm usually surprised when I ask them what they would like to do as fishing for stripers or crappies takes a whole different set of tackle, and is much more species specific that fishing a natural lake up north. Mostly the answer is to "just catch some fish". Good for you to "take the temperature" of folks on the forum but perhaps not a typical mindset of a vacation client. I know I'm going to be in your boat one day to learn to fish off shore. (still hope to put some in the boat). JMO Be well.
  12. Not much C-P-R in bow fishin' is there. Guess they just have to kill something to feel good. JMO

    old school walleyes

    Quick comment on the walleyes this year. Out last evening for 2 hrs. Tried a different area than last. Beaver continues to amaze me that in-coming rain/storms do not seem to have a positive effect on the fish activity. Raining, yes I've had good bites while it is raining. But the pre frontal effect seems nil. Anyway only one fish last night but it was a nice 20" eye. Just my small sample but I have already caught more walleyes than all last year and they all seem fat & healthy. No so last year as most were scrawny. Have a safe 4th all and read up on Nike's latest.
