  1. If you pet him, you've a chance to walk away. If you feed him.............you're food.
  2. Really he means, don't feed the bears
  3. When they came out that very thing got my buddy a ticket and they didn't have a thing to say even when we showed the agent the problem when he checked us. Cost my buddy over $100 bucks and that was in the late 70's. They knew and haven't done a thing to change it. The fish was an eighth inch over. 1/8" over, he measured with a home made measuring board.
  4. And he has a pair of binoculars. Don't ask how I know. LOL
  5. I have one but not used it alot. It's medium power and medium action and I use it for crankbaits and lipless baits. I've not had any problems with it. I really like the rod. It is lightweight and I really like it. I'll be using it more this spring. I've debated buying another, but am waiting to see how it performs with more fishing under its belt.
  6. I was on Taney Nov 5th taking advantage of Phil Lilley's offer to veterans. I had a great time and I appreciate this time at Lilley's. I would like to thank Phil for making this offer. Thank you. I took my boat ride and it was so much fun and so beautiful that I had to share.
  7. http://www.tablerocklake.com/lakerecreation/fishing/MoFishLimits.html Found this link and looked on MDC site which said 15" minimum for walleye. I'll be using the MDC information. Thought it interesting
  8. Phil, I found this camera they use on motorcycles and has attachments. I'm not familiar with it, but it appears worth a look. https://usa.ioncamera.com/shop/air-pro-wi-fi-lite/
  9. Don't mention politics or you'll have to move in before he finishes. I love going there and wandering around, it is amazing.
  10. Yes, I'd like to do that. Thanks
  11. Thank you for the information. I'm looking forward to flyfishing several areas in my area around MM74 on the Osage
  12. How long do you make the Clouser? I know Whites seem to have a preference to bait fish lengths, so is that the overall length they are tied to?
  13. Thanks, too many different lines for me, but I like to try them.
  14. I have purchased Pline Floroclear which is a fluorocarbon coated line. What does that mean? I have found it stiff and kinks and while it works for heavier weights, 3/8 oz and above, it doesn't work well for 4# line. Is flourocarbon better than this stuff. I'd rather stay with Mono
  15. Only costs $7.00 for a trout permit for the year.
  16. I wrap the skirt on the jig with a couple wraps of light gage copper wire and twist the wire tight.
  17. Thanks, sure makes me glad I have a tinboat. But it sure disrupts the fishing, I know. Once had a guy tell me a draw down didn't hurt the fishing. I knew that was wrong and the week proved it was wrong. Caught one nice fish and blanked the rest of the week.
  18. Son-in-law and his cousin was told they were dropping the lake last week end. They had to take out their boats. How far did they drop the lake?
  19. Dutch, you do an excellent tie on those jigs. Too pretty to use.
  20. I always let them know I am going to walk behind them so they know I'm there.
  21. Struck me funny, spinning reels to golf balls.......I guess there's a way to screw in a small eye screw on each side of the ball then tie the fishing line to one and a short leader with a midge on the other and have Lilley place driving pads on his docks and we can practice golf and trout fishing with one swing of the club and see how the spinning reels work. I know, its a stretch. LOL
  22. Now that makes me feel better. I am scared of the narrows and I haven't been down enough to learn how to navigate it when the water is lower. Obviously more practice is required and I will be getting that. Love that place.
  23. Yes, real tricky and I have the redesigned prop to show it and I was going just fast enough to overcome the current.
