  1. It seems a catch and release tournament is a good compromise between sport and conservation. However, I really don't have an issue with doing a weigh in tournament or two per year. As for the big brown, I wonder if they tried to stop along the way back to give it time in the water? With such a large fish, the tourney would have been the last thing on my mind. I would have pulled into Scottys and made some calls to figure out what to do.
  2. Do not know the buyer or boat, but saw this up my way https://columbiamo.craigslist.org/boa/d/ashland-boat-supreme/6957176001.html
  3. My initial thought was indeed the type of races at Lake of the Ozarks with the big offshore boats going 200mph. This sounds much for manageable.
  4. Unfortunately, you have to do a lot more than that on a regular basis to actually get put into prison. I mean, you have to try really hard on numerous occasions to go to jail these days.
  5. Completely unscientific, but when drift fishing with bottom bouncing rigs, it seems that night crawlers tend to produce more distinct strikes allowing for actual hooksets in lip for even novices vs powerbait eggs/nuggets where they just swallow it. If they do swallow it, NBD to just just cut the line and put a new rig on your swivel. You'll be fishing quicker anyways.
  6. You can't fix stupid
  7. I asked a related question a year ago or so related to night fishing by boat. You rarely see anyone trying it. Duane pretty much said the fog is too unpredictable. Makes it too tough and dangerous.
  8. How is that different from a wooly bugger? Caught so many fish back in my college days stripping woolies down at the dam. They look similar, but the hibernator looks thicker
  9. 20k cfs would make the tailer water level about 713-714, correct?
  10. 11500cfs release by this afternoon. Guessing that will be doubled within a day or two. Corresponding move at Table Rock coming I bet. Going to get dicey
  11. Well, here is the MDC video story on the state record rainbow. Caught at Roaring River in the park right below the hatchery pond dam. Wonder if it was a recent stocker from the pond or it truly had been in for awhile?
  12. I am trying to imagine what a 17lb rainbow would look like and I'm coming up with nothin' after seeing this 12lb fish. What a catch and great job on the video production
  13. At least Table Rock has some storage left. That won't last long though with the forecasted deluge to come the next five days and when they start purging Beaver. Hoping for the best
  14. Trust me, I know all about the locals and their precious 659. When I moved up here I couldn't get over the whining over a 1 foot drop or rise. Growing up on Stockton I was used to anything under 10ft difference from normal pool being acceptable and these people want to complain about 6" either way?
