  1. I will be down with JestersHK, like him I will need a bed and boat. Excited to see everyone again.
  2. 2nd Weekend of Dec works good for me just like JestersHK! Excited to see everyone again.
  3. Thanks John, I really appreciate it, your posts were a great help! Hoping to give my kids some special memories.
  4. Thank you Snagged! I am hoping they have an awesome trip. They have fished Bennett many many times and Tany a few.
  5. Thanks Ham! I appreciate the advice. I have some Zig Jigs left from the last Jig Fest! We had planned on letting the kids fish Dry Run, they are excited. Hoping we can get on some while we are down. We may make a drive over to Cotter as well.
  6. I will be packing up the camper and family next week for a labor day trip to the area. We (wife and two boys, 15 and 13) will be camping at Dam-Quarry campground beside Norfolk Dam. Any advice on where we should fish other than below the dam?
  7. I am taking my wife and two boys (15 and 13) to fish over Labor Day weekend. We will be camping at Dam-Quarry and fishing close to the Dam, but I am open to other areas. We have no boat so it will be wade fishing and from docks. Any advice on where, how, and with what would be appreciated. We jig fish and fly fish.
  8. I'm in! I'll be coming down with Jesters. Can't wait to see you all!
  9. What a weekend! Food, fishing, fun, and friends. As a newbie, I felt welcomed and can’t wait to get together again. The conditions were less than ideal, but we still caught some fish. I was blessed to get to fish both Duane and Phill. I leaned a lot from both. The food was amazing. Thanks to all the guys who cooked. Duane worked his magic with the fish and the deer nachos. Those flavor crystals were on point. The Martyque that Les made was amazing and Johns mushrooms were great. Let’s not even talk about the smoked chili and kraut and sausage in Thursday. Fishimg on the lake was good buy a bit slow. For me , it was the night that was awesome. Dj, Geno, Daryk, John, and I all wandered up and braved the dark and cold. The fishing was good, I daughter several nice bows. The highlight was a story I will never forget if Daryk would not have been there I don’t think any one would have believed it. At about 11 Dj and Duane’s lute were slammed by a big fish. After 10 minutes or so, we finally got a glimpse of the biggest brown he had ever hooked up on. He did a fantastic job of bringing him in, then disaster struck. I was trying to net it for him and the the fish came off. Dj dropped to his knees and grabbed for the tail. He was not able to keep the hold and did not get a picture. We were both beyond upset. He stood for a while dejected and I went back to fishing. After about 5 minutes, I was slammed and it was on! My little ultralight bent over and the drag screamed. After around 10 minutes we were able to land it! A beautiful brown and she was HUGE!! Measured 32’ and 11” tall. It was the same fish DJ had hooked up on. She even had a 12” rainbow sticking out of her mouth. We were able to get pictures for both of us, and we are having a mount made. She was released and swam off strong. I was upset that we had to move it cause I’ve always wanted to fish the White, but this experience couldn’t be beat! Thank you very much Phill, for the hospitality.
  10. I’ve got to post as well! After Dj caught an enormous fish and I failed to net it for him I felt horrible!! He has a beautiful fish and no pics! Then... BAM!! Fish on!!! He hit one of Duane’s rainbow patterns and bent my rod over. The line peeled and my drag squealed! Dj was yelling for me to beach him instead of the net! Finally got him to shore! He was 32” long and 11” tall! He had a 12” rainbow hanging out of his mouth! It was perfect. What are the odds??
  11. For what is worth, and I am not a local. . . .Watching weather.com shows Saturday being the worst day. Temps during the day look to remain above freezing. My main concern is the water status. I have never fished the legendary White, so I am really excited. But as I am riding with HKJesters, I will go where he takes me. As long as he is taking me fishing!
  12. I can also bring Rotel dip and chips if people like that
  13. Would baked beans be eaten with the fish fry? My wife makes a mean baked bean dish
  14. Quillback, i am a newbie this year. What can I bring to help out food wise. My wife is a good cook and I am pretty good on a Blackstone.
