  1. 3DHUSKER....funny that you should ask! Ron Preston is a great friend of mine and he has told me that I can use his music at any time...with that said, I'm still not sure how to get around Youtube banning a video on copy write claims. I could just have Ron send me the audio files....I grabbed "Day Just Like Today" from Spotify. I was afraid to link poeple to the video you referenced because I didn't want people being blocked. I am anxious to use his music in my videos....he is a very good local talent who has many good original tunes.
  2. Still practicing with the video editing. I fished Stockton lake on 8/4...what a beautiful day to be on the water. It actually felt like I was back in Maine! I have linked to a video of myself landing a 18 inch walleye and a 17.5 inch smallie. https://youtu.be/bZCIeoDF3z8 Oh and BTW...I found an anchor while fishing. If anyone wants to claim it, please let me know...(picture below). I have no use for it!
  3. I was born and raised in Maine. September is a great time to be visiting. If you have questions about where to go or are looking for ideas, let me know and I'd be glad to help!
  4. I am just happy that the video is available now!! Did you notice that I was wearing a light jacket in the video!
  5. Copywrite issue should be resolved. Hope video is now available.
  6. Dutch...must be my background music. I will remove the music and repost.
  7. Liphunter....it seems to work for me. Before I try to change something I will wait to see if anyone else has issues. Thanks for letting me know!
  8. When in Missouri I primarily fish Stockton Lake. I thought that some of you might enjoy a video that I put together while fishing in Maine last week. I took all of my kayaks and got to spend some quality time on the water with family. You can check out some of the vacation pictures on my Instagram account (OzarksKayakFishing) or my Facebook page (Ozarks Kayak Fishing). The video is from a solo trip to Pocumcus Lake in northeastern Maine. I have cousins on two different lake in the area and they suggested Pocumcus Lake for smallies. Hope the link works for you!.....Apparently there were copy write issues with video! They should be resolved now and video is available...I hope!! https://youtu.be/j_ma4OAun38
  9. It was a bit chilly in the morning so I waited until 2 pm to access lake. A slow troll in about 12 to 18 ft of water brought home 7 crappie, 2 walleye, and a white. The water temp was about 63.5 F. I wasn't disappointed with my catch, but I was expecting the bite to be a bit more steady! There was a lot of paddling involved to get these fish!
  10. Hi Everyone: I have recently retired from my 31+ year career in power production. I'm ready to do something fun! This spring I will be starting a kayak fishing guide service. The name of my business is "Ozarks Kayak Fishing". My company consists of a new truck, four 2019 Jackson Coosa HD kayaks, and a Tennessee trailer. The kayaks will be equipped with a fish finder, poles, pliers..... I have always enjoyed fishing on Stockton Lake and I look forward to sharing my passion of kayak fishing with others. I promise that I won't try to turn this forum into a advertising platform! I will occasionally share pictures and information obtained on my adventures. I have just recently gone live with my website....www.OzarksKayakFishing.com. The website is definitely a work in progress but it will get better every day. If you are interested in learning to fish from a kayak check out my website! See you all on the water.

  11. Walcrabass: The Cedar County Commissioner is Marlon Collins and his e-mail address is Commission@CedarCountyMO.gov. He was very pleasant to talk to on the phone. I do not have e-mail addresses for anyone at the Corp. They were also very pleasant to talk to!
  12. Fellow yakkers, hunters, hikers, mushroom seekers and others: The attached article is a well written letter to the editor of Stockton's local newspaper (I assume) written by Wayne Terrell. The letter discusses his displeasure with a new local landowner who has requested to the Cedar County courthouse that a portion of County Road 1774 be closed. If the County Commissioner upholds this request a bad precedence will be established. As a kayakker the final decision will not effect my access to the lake. However, if this landowner has his way which County Road is next? It appears on the surface that this landowner is trying to turn his/her 180 acre plot of land into their own personal 680 acres. Pretty greedy in my opinion! I would suggest that you take Wayne Terrell's advise and call the County Commissioner and the Corp of Engineers to state your opinion on this matter. Wayne also mentioned that there is a public hearing on September 9th at the courthouse. I personally cannot attend and therefore I have already talked to a representative for the Corp and the Commisssioner Marlin Collins. Both calls were quite pleasant. The Commisssioner asked me to send him an e-mail discussing my disapproval so that he could display it at the hearing. He will problably ask you to do the same. Thanks for your time and hope to continue meeting more of the Ozark Anglers members out on the water! YakAttack
  13. Corp Land Access Threatened

             A fellow yakker brought the attached document to my attention tonight.  It's a very well written letter to  Stockton's local newspaper ( I assume) by Wayne Terrell.  He discusses an issue concerning a "new area landowner" filing documents with the Cedar County Court asking for permission to close the western portion of County Road 1774.  I'll let you read the rest of the article if you so desire.  

           The western portion of CR 1774 does not terminate at the lake so I do not use this road as a kayak access.  I do however use the County Road that tee's off from CR 1774 for access to the back of Price Branch.  If precedence is set by the Cedar County court by granting this landowner permission to close access to this  Corp land from hunters, hikers, mushroom seekers, and everyone else then which access is next??  I was fishing this Monday in the vicinity of the dam.  I accessed from the County Road on the eastern shore just south of the road that turns to cross the dam.  There were people fishing from shore, a scuba diver testing his gear, and many families swimming.  Again, if precedence is set what keeps all other local landowners shutting down all of the County Roads leading to the lake or other hunting areas?  I would urge everyone to do as Wayne Terrell suggests....consider attending a public hearing on Monday, September 9th at the Cedar County courthouse at 10:00 an in room 5 or  call the Cedar County Commissioner or the Corp of Engineers to voice your opposition to this request.  I live is Springfield and work on Monday and therefore will not be able to attend the meeting.  I will however call to voice my displeasure.  Phone numbers are provided at the end of the article.  

         I have enjoyed meeting some of the fishermen that post on Ozark Anglers and I enjoy reading the adventures of others.  I have posted a few adventures myself in the past... I'm not trying to turn this forum into  a  political debate platform, but I would assume that my opinion on this matter would be shared by most of you and it would be a shame if this access was restricted because no one knew about it and therefore no resistance.  



  14. OK...so I just started playing around with my GoPro. Very new to editing but it sure does look like it could be fun. May 25th I kayaked into Price Branch. Came home with 3 crappie and a white. I promise that the filming and editing will improve!
  15. Hey...you know where we were fishing!
