    Good thread. Gives me hope we can do the OA tournament this spring. Some of you will be post infection and we all have learned about staying safe. By the next year after that perhaps we can laugh and stand around the grill as Phil does salmon.

    I’ve never been a huge fan and or impressed with the Smallmouth on the Nade.  But, yesterday I changed my mind.  I put in at a public ramp solo and ran a couple miles up before I noticed my fuel gauge was at 2.6 gallons !!  Not cool.  I guess I fish nearly every day and sometimes it slips my mind but I reacted instantly and decided that whatever looked good in the next mile or so I would sit on it and figure something out.   I guess I’m a good judge because I set down and immediately see I am in 16’ of dead water with maybe a slight bit of back flow.  That means water is literally running the wrong direction.  I immediately toss a swim bait as far as I can  and let it slowly fall to the bottom.  As soon as I moved it a few inches that oh so familiar feel of a winter smallmouth loading up on my rod.  I fished for 2 hours without moving off the same spot. 40-50 fish.  8 smallies and the rest were spots.  All keepers or bigger.  4 of the smallie were big imo.  I didn’t try any different baits on them because it was clear they were on bait fish and the 3.5” swimmers I throw were the ticket. Water was dirty and deep.  Fish were glued to the bottom.  I don’t know any other method that would’ve worked. This is strictly my opinion, but the Meramec has bigger Smallmouth, and the Nade has the numbers.  Don’t attack me on this one.  Just my opinion.  I think I’ll go hunting tomorrow.

    Boys as you can see here from Vernon and Dutch you just dont know how it is going to affect you. And who knows what is coming years after if you contract it. There are just so many unknowns. Bottom line is to do all you can to stay safe. It doesnt mean you cant still live your life! Its sad to me that this has become a political issue. Glad you're doing ok Vernon and everybody else on here that has tested positive. I'm hoping for an OA tourny in March!!!!

    Magicwormman, glad you guys are on the mend. It’s no wonder the medical experts are baffled by Covid as the degree of symptoms are all over the board. Kudos for donating plasma.

    BEWARE!!!! My wife and another couple went to visit a friend who was in the hospital for 3 weeks and home for 2 weeks. They all went into their home.......bad mistake! All 3 came down with covid and than my lovely wife shared it with me! I had a lighter case than my wife. She was sick for 14 days, but I was only sick for 6 days. We both had no energy the entire time and I had the NASTIEST taste in my mouth. I couldn't even drink coffee and I lost 9 lbs in a week! We self quarantined for 3 weeks and than went to get the antibody blood test and we both tested positive. We are going to Springfield next week to give blood plasma. I understand there is a real need for it at this time. Please don't believe 14 days is enough if you go into a home.

    At that weight I would guess 25-26 inches. Starting around 23 inches, the second digit means roughly a pound. 23 inches equals 3 pounds, 24 equals 4 pounds and so on. On my two largest walleye, the 10 pound fish was 29.75 inches. My 13.75 pound walleye was a fat 32.5 inch fish.
