    Reel help

    Once again, thanks to all you boys for your thoughtful input. I realize a fishing reel can kinda be like your ball glove, your choice of vehicle. What feels right for you! I did have the price listed wrong. It was 99 dollars. I bought a few other items on the 25 days of Christmas sale, including some Bandit crankbaits simply because somebody on here liked them. I went to BassPro yesterday to buy a new walleye rod and checked out the Daiwa Fuego. It seemed like it was a smooth reel. But i was disappointed that BP was also selling it for 99 dollars so no real savings at TackleWarehouse. Appreciate all the advice and opinions from you boys! Go Chiefs!!!!

    Reel help

    Hope all you boys had a great holiday season. I was checking out TackleWarehouse 25 days of Christmas sale and i noticed one of the days was a sale on Daiwa reels. I need a new spinning reel and i believe a lot of you here a while back were pretty high on the Procyon. So i thought i would buy one of those. I went back to TackleWarehouse and alas the Procyon was sold out!! They have the Fuego on sale for 139 dollars. I thought some of you recommended the Fuego also here awhile back. Anyway, thought i would ask you guys for some advice here. As always, i appreciate your input on fishing gear here. thanks

    Fall walleyes, in search of....

    I was there with a buddy last thursday and friday and we struggled. We bottom bounced with crawlers most of thursday afternoon. Nothing. We finally started drifting a 1/4 oz jig with a crawler and my buddy caught a nice 19.5 incher. I had 2 smalls. We went back friday afternoon and it was your classic "walleye day". Cloudy with a little chop. Went back to drifting the jig/crawler and nothing!! We targeted 15 to 25 fow. Water temp thursday was 66. It dropped to 61 friday with the cold night and cool day air temps. It was disappointing.

    Anybody see this yet?

    Thanks for sharing Dan. I have a place down there and always tell myself i want to target some muskie in Oct and Nov but I'm usually in hunting mode by then. I was becoming more and more disenchanted with the KC Star over the years. When they dropped Brent Frazee and his outdoor articles that was the final straw for me.

    What is the rain situation down there boys? Up here in Smithville we have had over 9 inches of rain in the last 72 hrs. Got some major flooding going on. Roads closed. Was thinking about coming down this weekend. Thanks.

    Lost tackle tray

    While trolling for walleye last friday around B2 on the main lake i found a floating tackle box tray full of soft plastics. I stayed around the area for quite awhile hoping somebody would come look for it. Nobody showed. Very few fisherman on the water at that time. I wasnt sure what to do. Thought about leaving it at Orleans Trail Marina. But brought it home. If its yours and you can identify it I will be back in that area in a couple of weeks. Maybe i can leave it somewhere and you can pick it up.

    FOUND!!! rods and reels

    I'll second everybody on here thanking you on here for trying to do the right thing. I had a similar incident myself this past friday while trolling for walleyes on Stockton. I saw something floating and went over to check it out. It was a large plastic tray from a tacklebox. It contained all soft plastics. I stayed in the area for an extended time hoping someone would realize they lost it and would perhaps retrace their steps. Nobody showed. I really didnt know what to do. Take it to the marina? Place it on shore? Keep it? I kept it and brought it home. But after seeing your post here Ealy I will post on the Stockton forum page. Its not a tray full of expensive crankbaits but still would like to get it back to the owner if possible.

    Boats, boats, and more boats

    One of the best things if not the best of being retired is i get to fish during the week. I have a place at Pomme as well and i will go down during the week and have the lake virtually to myself. Same with Stockton. A few more boats on Truman during the week and Table Rock can still get crowded. I come home on fridays and see all the traffic pulling boats going the other way!! Life is good!!

    Have a question

    14 walleye on one trip and 11 walleye on the other trip i would consider pretty darn good. With 11 keepers!I really would like to learn your bottom bouncer technique. i tried it the last two trips down there and we caught 5 keepers on the first trip and just two on the second. We fished about 6 hours. I would give you some of my money Lmt out!!

    I'm not an expert by any means kelbrand but i have always heard oct and nov is best. Get a cloudy overcast day with some wind. I'm usually hunting by then and dont get a chance. But I swear I'm going to!
