  1. much earlier in the day. Kept pounding the same area cause I didn't want to get to far from the ramp and had been catching some really nice crappie in one area. Picked up 3 pretty quickly then zilch for over 2 hours. I'm using the old Arky traveler with just the electric troller cause I don't want to beach the Super Guide, so things move slowly. Any how I decided to go across the lake and try a different flat. Found em, 18-20 deep, still wanted the black and chartreuse, picked up 7 in about 2 hours..Mostly males but the big sows are nearly ready. Everything 12-14 inches. Also kept 3 whites for a couple I mow for. Lots of folks out, a fellow in a kayak had found several morels. Stay safe.
  2. Snuck up late yesterday, on water just after five. Fishing buddy always complains I have advantage in front seat of boat so gave it to him. He broke it and done a nose dive to floor within 5 mins. Saw it coming, told him so and he still done it, go figure. Caught 18 before dark, 11-13 inches, they preferred black and chartreuse, 13-16 fow, slow stroll. Asked fishing buddy how many he had and he says 8 so I tossed my last one back. Went to clean them and he had 9, says I told you the front seat was better!! Since the restaurants are closed and he can't buy breakfast anymore I may consider leaving him at home!! Or not.

    I'm sure glad I didn't mention that the sheep that were lying down. Coulda got nasty quickly. And I don't take responsibility for this thread, Dutch is the guilty culprit. Just saying.

    I have gone four times since the Super Bowl. Found crappie on flats near channels , 24-28 fow shadowing lines of shad 4-6 foot off the bottom. Nice fish, no shorts, fairly light bumps but I tip w/ minnows this time of year so they'll hold on longer. 3 limits, mostly 11-12 inches, until yesterday, don't know if it was low pressure or the cows laying down in the fields but they had lockjaw. Left early, stopped by gun shop on way home, then sat in big chair and brooded the rest of the day. Boat is serviced and loaded, new line on, jigs and skirts organized, just watching the waves of weather for and opportunity to get the skunk off.
  5. Sons creek was clear at noon today, and over run with white pelicans
  6. was cooperating with us this weekend. Boated 18 on jugs set in 4 fow. Set 6 jugs about 3 pm Thurs and had 3 within 2 hours. Set the remaining 12 and had 8 more Fri morning. 1.5 to 7 lbs. Had a family fish fry on Sat and told them they were walleye. Some of the family aren't the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree. OGHFM
  7. open yesterday (Friday)
  8. Got to the cabin about 2 pm Friday, mowed and trimmed the lawn, fixed a couple of jug lines then hit the lake about 5. Trolled flicker shad and the birdwatcher (my wife) caught a 19 inch walleye in about 5 ft of water. Put out juglines while disguising my pouting. Got them out by 6 and started dragging FS again. She boated another eye in 6 ft of water while watching the flock of pelicans. darn. Finally limped the boat toward the ramp and she caught another keeper while watching some cloud formations. Went back to cabin and cleaned her darned fish while pouting. Got up at dark thirty and asked her if she wanted to go. Nope. Heres my chance me said. One short walleye. Did get 5 channel cat, but got finned twice, plus the remote for my trolling motor quit. Got it kinda operating enough to rebait the jugs Sat evening but HER walleye bite had ended. 2 more channel though. Sunday morning another NOPE, only 2 channel cat before the rain started. Came home and she made me watch the Chiefs lose. Still pouting. OGHFM
  9. Nice drum Dan. Ha The smallies a toad.
  10. 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.
  11. Ken's is 3 miles from THE CABIN and we have a late breakfast there frequently, always good biscuits and gravy.
  12. 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?

  13. I think we've gone from non-venting fuel caps to just plain venting. LOL Just saying
  14. 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.

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.
