  1. I put in a little over three miles up at stockton yesterday checking the usual spots and looking in new spots, didn’t find any. It always seems to be about a week before turkey season for me up there....I did find a few closer to Mt Vernon two days ago...
  2. So I didn’t know any about these striper tournaments. Where do find information on them. (Without using Facebook, I am anti Facebook) Thanks
  3. Well....we got Beavered today Had 3 stripers blow up and knock my bait around but didn’t hook up a single time. We were in em several times but did not catch a single one. Didn’t bass at all this morning. Maybe it’ll improve after this cold weather moves thru....probably chase em again this weekend.
  4. Put in at LBS at 0600 ran up to Fords then to Cedar with no action then up around to the bouy point where we caught 6 keeper sized stripers and and nice walleye. From there we headed down to the clifty that runs east and west ( not sure if it’s big or little) anyhow got on some bass in 25ish fow with the kietech on 3/16 head. Fished it low and slow and caught em from dink size to solid keeper size. Headed back in the AM for another trip before the rains.
  5. Dan, So I always stay at Shangri La when I fish down there, they are famous for the pie. At first it was always an early spring striper trip, we had some excellent trips. Later I found myself working in pine bluff so every other weekend I stayed there. The bass fishing is pretty good, but from reading your posts over the past couple years I’m betting you are most interested in walleye so I think you will be interested in the fact that jigging spoons and brush piles equal walleye this time of year on Quachita.
  6. One more place Laneys in Pleasant Hope has an excellent pork tenderloin.....wrong lake I guess but worth the stop if a person is over that way
  7. Burger Shack in Miller hands down the best burgers in the area way better than state park burgers....the burgers in greenfield are good but not as good.... no doubt the best ones in Lawrence/Dade/Cedar counties. The place in Arcola is real good too. Burger Shack ain’t been there 10years but the burgers are always excellent
  8. Putting a dollar value on big antlers has ruined deer hunting. Outdoor television has ruined deer-hunting. Outfitting whitetail deer hunts has ruined deer hunting hunting. Twisted herd management (my deer mindset) has ruined deer hunting.
  9. When you say swamp do you mean it’s just muddy or do you mean it’s muddy and full of trees
  10. I’ve got 4 or maybe 5 of them, PM me if you are interested.
  11. So my wife and me are in Puerto Rico this week, today we went on a road trip to the east side of the island. We saw they have windmills for electricity, every single one of those things still have the blades blown smooth off from hurricane maria....every single one we saw.
  12. I had a nephew in that tournament too, he got to weigh in a keeper so that was pretty cool. He also got to fall out of the boat Saturday while pre fishing, and even better his fishing partner stuck a jerkbait to the old mans face. Had to go to the hospital and get them cut out. Memories were made😂
  13. I used BJ Boat rebuilders to re-do the gel coat and put carpet in my boat 2 yrs ago. The boat is kept inside and now two years later the carpet is coming up and the gel coat is hazy. I took it back three times, got tired of foolin with them. One of those 3 times was for a screw about 3 inches long they ran through the hull. TAKE YOUR BOAT ANYWHERE BUT THERE!!
  14. What Fishin Wrench said ( I think he’s not a big fan of Churh people)..... Everything was decided before any of us were ever born. You can side with science and think you can stop the end ....good luck with that. I think/believe the global warming debate, like so many other things these days is an attack on Christianity, it’s good versus evil. I guess my point is.....wait for it.....Ask Jesus for Salvation, it’ll change you. Maybe do a little something for the environment too. Plant trees, don’t have 14 kids, maybe drive the little car for work instead of your pick up (even though I don’t like the little car) just be a good steward.
  15. I’m not sure that you can fish Norfork on the white river border pass, I’m thinking you gotta have a regular AR fishing license ??
  16. Ritz crackers, flour, salt, pepper milk, eggs crisco usually, but do use bacon grease pretty regular dust with flour first, dip in eggs/milk then coat wit ritz/flour mixture, fry till it floats also use bacon grease when I pop my popcorn 🍿
  17. Wrench is right....don’t matter how you try to prevent it, when your number is drawn the gig is up
  18. Pappy rays jigs 👍🏻👍🏻
  19. Where can I get these predator blanks?
  20. So I’ve got a couple days off starting Sunday and plan on a little striper fishing. My question is: If the Gov. shuts down will they close the COE ramps? If they close the COE ramps can I still put in at Ventris or maybe the 412 bridge?
  21. That’s a nice buck for sure. Never mind the age of that deer, a man has to have the time available to let deer like him walk Until I get to retire some far off year from now that buck is taking a ride to the house with me every time Spent a year living in NW Kansas impressive deer herd, lots of walk in hunting that is exceptional, I would argue better than any private SW Missouri ground I have ever hunted Kansas is good....not Iowa good.....but good. Missouri on the other hand does a poor job. Rifle season during the rut??? C’mon man!!! Over the counter non resident tags???? Get serious!!! Crossbows for anyone during bow season???? Wow!!!! The only bucks MDC is concerned are the ones in people’s wallets.
  22. I know a fella in Kirbyville who has a 1988 ranger fisherman 680c with a 90hp Yamaha for sale. I don’t know much else about it. If you want his contact info let me know.
  23. First picture I’ve been able to post, anyways it’s a 99 basscat, I try to take care of it cause new ones are way too expensive!! You’ll see it at Stockton, Beaver, Table Rock and occasionally At Norfork and Quachita too. I’m kinda socially challenged so let’s just go with a friendly wave for now. Black Bass Matter
  24. Like the title says I never it was here. I live between Stockton and Table Rock so naturally i’m always fishing close to the house ( mostly stockton) I had to work in Bowling Green this week and kinda stumbled onto Mark Twain by accident. So I’ve been looking at maps of it and like the looks of it. My question is how is the bass fishing up here?
