  1. Nice drum Dan. Ha The smallies a toad.
  2. I'm originally from Eldo, which probably explains my dain bramage. Don't drink the iron infused spring water, it'll turn your hair white.
  3. Ken's is 3 miles from THE CABIN and we have a late breakfast there frequently, always good biscuits and gravy.
  4. to eat going to or from the lake. Criteria- gotta be consistently good- has to have been in business over 10 years-under $10 including beverage (yes, I am cheap). Breakfast- White grill in Nevada. Love their mess (yes, its called Lou's mess) Booths and stools, in business before WW2. Lunch- Reds Drive-In in Greenfield. Best pork tenderloin around, and old fashioned burgers and malts. Anytime- Cookies in Golden City- true Americana- whole ham slices- great fried chicken- open faced beef sandwich, burgers, good pork tenders, and heavenly pies just staring at you. I believe it was established in 1942. Honorable Mention- Only because they haven't reached ten years yet- Tractor Bar B Q in Lamar. Breakfast lunch or dinner. Great service and food. What's yours?

  5. I think we've gone from non-venting fuel caps to just plain venting. LOL Just saying
  6. these federal agencies that police us but no one polices them. Hear my story. Sold a 6 hp Tohatsu to a fine young fellow who happens to play football for OSU. He picked it up Friday, got back to Stillwater and took it out fishing. Ran fine. Got ready to come in, wouldn't start. Choked it(mistake). Still wouldn't start. Texted me at 1 am. Texted back to prime it. It started. Got a text that morning that it had randomly quit running several times while traveling just 2 miles back to ramp. Next morning I called Kim at Joplin Marine and he said don't choke a warm engine (true) but the reason it wouldn't restart was the EPA MANDATED vent on top of the filler cap has to be just right or it won't feed fuel, and if you screw it out too far it seals off again. They loosened the fuel cap a little and its still running. Just saying.

    kinda cranky

    fPicked up the 12 yo grandson Friday morning and headed to Neosho MDC range, he shot some nice groups. Met a couple of OSU football jocks at the house and they bought my Tohatsu 4 stroke. Headed to Stockton, pattern had changed, only 2 crappie on flickers in 2 hours. Back on lake about 7 this morning, 5 drum and 2 green carp by 9, breakfast at cabin, back on lake about 11, 5 more drum and one more green carp, got tired of seeing all the shad just off bottom, put on 3 way w/ one ounce dropper ahead of flicker, 12 inch crappie, coulda shouda changed earlier, got hot, went to air conditioned big chair, woke up, weedeated lawn, still scratching chiggers but have had worse trips.

  8. Steve, I'm not really a cove fisherman. I would call these flats, but where on a normal year these would be too shallow , they are now 20-25 fow. Deeper water is near and some stumps near also. Not a brush pile fisherman either, although Stockton is a brushpile lake. There are a lot of fry near the banks, in the trees right now, but I did see shad just off the bottom in 20-23 fow. That 1.5 mph is probably the key. Did make a run around deeper trees in 40 or so fow but no luck, didn't even see anything interesting. The graph on that boat isn't high tech, a Lowrance dsi4, purely down imaging black and white, w/ gps, and crappie show up on it as dots. Those small shad piles might be interesting to drag your bottom bouncer thru. Stockton is known for a NOON bite. Hope you find some, OGHFM
  9. I use number 7, and the Pro model worked better than the original today
  10. today cause I left the Super Guide in the garage and took ye olde Arkansas Traveler, it'll float in a ditch. Same pattern except they refused all colors but firetiger. 8 caught, 7 keepers, avg 23 fow and 1.7 mph. Seen a lot of shad just off the bottom in 20-23 fow. Me thinks the eyes are hanging out in the trees (shade) during the day and easing out for those shad as the sun sets, but I'm wrong more often than right. 14 fillets will be released to the grease at a later date.

    Waded Water

    To launch the boat today. Only fished bout 2 and a half hours w/ grandson and his buddy. Boated 7 crappie, 6 were keepers. Flicker shad in firetiger and purple, 23-6 fow, 1.5 mph, lunch at Reds, home by 2. Nice day w/ the boys.
  12. Hey, wheres your report from Sons creek trip? Went there today and somebody beat me to my secret spot.
  13. They were all ok. Happened Friday just after dark. They were getting it on the trailer about 11 am sat.

    Crappie ?

    Caught 7 yesterday, 6 Friday and 14 Thursday. They aren't prespawn , they are off the brushpiles and seeking shad and the shad are 16-24 ft on the bottom where I'm catching them. I occasionally see a line 6 ft off the bottom but they have whites after them. Warmest temps have been 55 in the pm. I've been working sloping flats w/ 35 fow nearby. When the water was really stained a roadrunner tipped w/minnow was working, but the water had cleared some yesterday and they preferred the rockport rattler, with a little slab jam on the joker skirt, black/chartreuse was best. sloooow. Have caught several nice ones and only 2 shorts over that 3 day period. Not saying minnows won't work, but I don't believe that they make much difference until much later. Hope you find some. OGHFM

    kinda late

    On this post, fished Thursday pm and Friday am on south end. 14 nice crappie thurs, 6 Friday. The wind was closer to nil Friday, don't think it was moving the shad as much, seen 52 degrees surf temp, no bait fish any shallower than 15. A couple of lines at 15 held crappie and white bass. Most were caught at 18 plus or minus a foot sucking mud. Drop double jigs to bottom, pick up slack then one full crank. Half thumped, half just a nudge. Roadrunner/joker w/ minnow tip, me thinks nibble tip would have worked as well, all released--------to the grease. OGHFM
