  1. I haven't watched a bobber sink in over - well been a lot of years. What type of bobber are you guys using? Have a web link?
  2. Dow Scubbing Bubbles. Aerosal pump sprayer and easier to use. Spray and wipe calcium away almost instantly. Slight etching of bare aluminum makes it sparkle. Just rinse with water to neutralize. I've used this for years restoring electrical and mechanical antiques with never a problem and makes the Merc shiny black again.
  3. It will go in before it goes back out. Thanks.
  4. Thanks. Postal folks are bouncing it around SW Mo. Still don't have it. Running on the garden hose, output is very warm but not hot after 5 minutes. Could be something else too. It never cut back on power and runs fine under 5 grand without alarming. That horn has to be the Queen of all idiot lights!
  5. Have one of those coming today in the mail. Got an alarm at WOT last week and local shop is backed up. Can anyone suggest a normal water or engine temperature range I should be prepared to see? 2018 Merc 40 ELPT
  6. Took the wife out Wed evening. Night actually by the time we put in. She forgot the boat key.... Had to go back for it.... Had a spot in mind. Taken. Went on in and found a spot but not as deep as would have liked at a little over 20 ft. Threw the green light in and tossed crawlers at cats for an hour or so with no takers. I've been night fishing before. Spent sundown to sunup out there once. Something about this night was different. I stumbled all over the place. Need a bigger boat with a larger payment. Almost fell in twice. Once stumbled over the wife as she sat on the port gunnel of the back platform. 116 pound lady kept this old 200 pound man from going in the drink. Nice bruise on her back from my elbow. At any rate. Nice big active minnows from the 66 station in Stockton netted us 5 really nice white bass.😀 Had one crappie at somewhere proud of 13 inches. She was full of eggs. I'll let you biology types explain that one. I though it a little late in the year myself, but I'm only an expert on non fishing matters. We both lost several whites. I had one in the boat that was easily the largest one I ever caught. He was hooked in the lip and as I went for his lip, he flipped - broke the line, skipped off the gunnel and was gone. I lost 2 or 3 more at least. Wife lost 2 or 3 also. 6 LB Stren. Used that on my ultra light gear for 40 years or more. Guess they improved it and I'll look for something else. I've tried smaller braided and found it too hard to tie especially in the wind. Cleaned the last fish at 0300. I've joked about white bass, but we ate them. Compared to that frozen crap from China they were delightful!
  7. Ok. Thanks. Found the old minner bucket so may give it a try. We went out couple nights ago and had very little luck, but when the sun went down and the bugs subsided, it was bloody wonderful out there!
  8. Bump. I'd like to learn more about nighttime crappie also. Bought the underwater light and the wife loves to watch the bait fish swirl around it. That's about all we've gotten out of it. What's the secret?

    Anybody been fishing the Masters area? Haven't seen a word about it and haven't been to check out the ramp this year. I'll try and fix that this coming week. Just hoping it's worth the drive!
  10. Just spoke with a gentleman at the Corps office. They have extended non collection of boat ramp fees through October.
  11. Country living at it's best! Doctor's office is a little less laid back. I couldn't get the app to work so we just visited on the phone and he renewed the prescriptions.
  12. All open in Stockton. Auto parts store (Well, Oreilly), hardware, groceries, gas and drive thru food windows all going strong.
  13. Six feet apart I hope.
  14. I suspect weekdays will become weekends on the lake. Great.

    Chantarelles are good in eggs..... https://duckduckgo.com/?q=missouri+mushrooms&t=canonical&atb=v143-1&iax=images&ia=images&iai=https%3A%2F%2Fnature.mdc.mo.gov%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2Fmedia%2Fimages%2F2010%2F05%2Fchantarelle.jpg Cutting up Morels into another food is illegal in some jurisdictions. Capitol offense! Well, Should be 😀 Nothing better than a fresh Morel fried up in butter. Lard in the good old days! darn, but I'm hungry.
