  1. It's pretty evident Facebook fishing groups are divisive and bring out the worst in people. I hate them. You post a pic of a fish you almost always get "why are you holding it like that? Did you release it? Why'd you use xyz bait?" It's ignorant and annoying. It'd be fine if it was done the right way, but it never is. Keyboard warriors. Franklin said "never insult somebody in public, you only make enemies." Insult them in private, sure. Same with hunting groups. If you ever post a pic of a buck, you have more balls than I.
  2. Oh, they work. Get a Jake's Spin-a-Lure and you will catch fish. Like Babler said, generally better from Fall Creek on down. From the Landing all the way to Rockaway Beach I have caught, or witnessed being caught, multiple big fish. Try trolling them with weight on the bluff banks and without weight in the shallower areas. Or cast them. Can't go wrong. My buddy has caught multiple 5+ pound browns on Jake's from Bee Creek down to Powersite. It's bigger water and acts more like a traditional lake, so trolling is good. Dickey and I think downriggers could produce some huge fish down lake. Best colors I've had on the Jake's are gold/red, black/yellow and silver/red. Good luck!
  3. We will have to meet up on the water or for a beer after a day of fishing!
  4. Well I finally was able to fish for an extended period of time, and it was on! Blake, from Lilley's Landing, and I boated up to the cable Saturday, 7/27 around 4:00 pm. We fished until dark-thirty, making several drifts from the cable through Trophy Run, and then from Lookout to Trout Hollow. Blake was throwing a 1/16-ounce peach jig with a sculpin head and the trout were hammering it. I, of course, threw a jerkbait. The ticket this time was a Spro McStick in Table Rock Shad. Fish were slamming it--hard! Lots of chasers but a lot of fish hitting within a few jerks. Most of them had all three hooks in them, somewhere, too. A real pain to release them without getting some new jewelry. We landed around 70 fish in 4.5 hours. Biggest we landed were some absolute chunk rainbows by the cable and through Rebar. A few were 16-17-inches and two pounds or more. The fish are fat and healthy. We had 2 units running and fish were everywhere--near the bank, middle of the lake, and near structure. I missed one just below the cable on the south side that was 20-inches or more. Big rainbow that went after it, but she just whiffed on the McStick. On my last cast I landed a 16-inch brown just across from Trout Hollow on the gravel bank and wood. A nice end to a heck of an afternoon. Dillon and Jack Harris were fishing around us most of the afternoon. Everyone caught a lot of nice fish. Jack caught a 19-inch rainbow on a sculpin/olive jib and Dillon had one 20-inches near the boat but lost it (due to a net mishap). Shags from 96.7 KCMQ and and his graphic designer, Tim, were around us, too. They did well on scuplin/olive jigs, Shad Raps, and a variety of baits. Here are a couple of his photos from the weekend. Photo credits to Nathan "Shags" McLeod. Here is the McStick I used. As you can see, it took a beating. I will be back for a week starting August 10th and will be giving some detailed reports then.
  5. No kidding dude. Felt good to catch a crapload of fish.

  7. Truth! Went to visit my buddy in Denver a couple Junes ago. Drove up to Boulder to fish. When I left his house that morning it was 67 deg and when I got to my fishing spot it was 34 deg. I was not complaining but holy hell was it cold.
  8. I think it's just because I'm stuck up here with all these 90 degree ponds year after year. If I lived in the Ozarks and was able to do that, I'd have a different view I'm sure.
  9. Also, after enjoying a Casey's breakfast of large Kona blend coffee, two slices of breakfast 'za, and a cake donut, getting out of waders fast enough to not fill them up is an extreme sport.
  10. Sitting here at work in KC and it is 97 degrees outside already. Heat index getting up to 110 this evening. All this does is make me think I have reverse seasonal depression! I hate summer. I hate "going to the lake," boating, etc. If I am going to a body of water, I want to fish it. Give me fall and spring--fishing is great, hunting seasons are open, you avoid a full-on flop sweat when walking to your car. Anyway, who else is preparing for teal season? What do you all think will happen this year for numbers? I've been hearing duck hatches have been excellent up north. I only hope! I need teal season and walleye fishing on Stockton.
  11. Probably not. Have to be in STL Saturday afternoon so I'd like to sleep some. But we shall see!
  12. I will be sure to blab the secrets any chance I get!
  13. I started a new job with Cerner in May and I have not fished since May 11th. That is 60 days. I am going nuts. I made the decision to take off Friday and I am coming down to fish Taneycomo for the first time since February (which was a good trip). Anybody going to be down? Plan on wading in the morning then seeing if Phil has a boat available for the afternoon. I will have a report after the day, assuming I catch fish. None of you care, I'm sure, but I had to post this somewhere haha. I am going crazy!
  14. Hammer down and let 'er rip then.! Only need a few inches of water. Lookout will be your barrier--go up and see what it looks like.
