    So a jig, which is a lure if it has marabou feathers tied on it becomes "bait" if it has soft plastic attached to it instead of marabou. Think I've got it now.

    Taneycomo, May 30 fishing report

    Might result to that. Probably will have some in the boat. Nick and Mandy's niece is here with them, and loves to fish. Probably take her out bait dippin' tomorrow.

    Taneycomo, May 30 fishing report

    Tried a couple of my known productive spots down lake from Lilleys Landing this morning. More properly formally productive spots. Not even a single bump on sculpin/peach jigs near Cooper Creek, Monkey Island. The bridges, a or landing. Even tried trolling a Flicker Shad down by the Landing. Nothing. Went up to Fall Creek, and fished the Gulp Worm under a float. Caught one about 12-13 inches, and several 10" fish. All fat, and healthy. Caught one more about 12" in 1/16 oz scupin/peach jig.

    "This kind of talk"? I believe I have been trying to be nothing but respectful, and informative. I made a comment about not shopping at Dicks, and answered a question as to why. My answers have been based on fact, not political agenda driven media hype. But I will let it go at this.

    No offence, but you either live in a sheltered world, or have an obvious lack of knowledge on the subject. I quite often hunt with handguns. Since 1972 I have hunted deer with a 44 Magnum revolver. For the past several years I have used a Thompson Center Contender handgun. I also have, and at times still do carry a 10MM Glock G20. My son that has several AR platform HUNTING rifles also has a Glock G40 in 10MM for hunting in Missouri's Alternative Methods deer season. What was formally called "muzzle loader" or "black powder" season. But now also allows centerfire handguns. Not only in Missouri is there a special season where handguns are used for deer hunting. Illinois, and many other states have a specific handgun deed hunting season. As for the use of the AR, or any semi-automatic rifles in school shootings, the first school mass shooting was at the University of Texas in 1966. 13 killed, 31 wounded. The weapons used. Remington 700 volt action "hunting" rifle. Remington 141 "hunting" rifle. Sears model 60 "hunting" shotgun. Maybe a few facts over liberal news media fiction on the subject could help you expand your knowledge of the subject.

    Today the AR 15, and AK 47. Tomorrow the 1911, and Glock. The next day the Remington 1100 and Browning A5. Military, full auto true assault rifles are already highly regulated, and quite expensive to own. If the AR platform is banned, those intent on harming others will just find another tool to use.

    Before the M16, a modification of the Armalite Rifle patent 15 designed for the Armalite Corporation by Eugene Stoner the US military used the M14. A modification it's self of the M1 Garand of WWII. The M1 being another of those "military" rifles that according to you should been kept in it's "proper" place in the military. Except that the M1 has been used in civilian target competition for many decades. Only to be replaced by the M1a which is a semi-auto variant of the M14. Much like the AR 15 is the semi automatic version of the M16, or current issue M4. Both of these civilian versions of military rifles operate no different than the long time deer favorite of many hunters, the Remington 742, and it's various incarnations over the years. Same for Browning's BAR hunting rifle. Pull the trigger, one round is fired, the spent case ejected, fresh round loaded, and sear set waiting for the next trigger pull to fire another round. A system dating back to the early 20th century, over 100 years old. The "furniture" on a rifle does not change the way it operates, only it's appearance.

    Their anti-Second Amendment policies go far beyond modern sporting rifles. The first thing they did when they took over the Galyan's store in West County Center was remove all handguns, and handgun ammunition. That was probably 10 or 15 years ago, and I haven't seen a reason to buy from them since. That has been my personal choice. Of course any merchant has the right to "separate" products any way they want. But when they do so in order to make a political point, and make a big deal out of it they deserve to lose business from people who disagree. BTW as a side point, the AR platform is one of the most popular sporting rifles today. My son took a fine Northern Missouri 10 point buck with an AR chambered in 6.8 Remington SPC. A rifle that he built from a vast array of AR15 parts that are available on the market. That flexibility alone is what makes that particular rifle platform so popular. Buy the lower receiver, which technically is the "gun" (serial numbered part) and without all the machining, and finish work of a gunsmith that would be required with a bolt action receiver, you can build a great spotting firearm in chamberings from 22 caliber to 50 caliber.

    First time rules questions

    So then Trout Magnets, and Gulp Worms on a tiny jig head, along with curly tail grubs, and Road Runners are not allowed anywhere in the park?

    Any Brown I catch will be saved for later fishermen. A bit more educated, and maybe photographed, but saved for the next guy.
  14. Going to Bennett for the first time in early June. I have questions about what appears to be mostly the revenue generation rules. Three zones, OK I can see a special zone for the fly rod purists to enjoy their sport without bait dunkers around. But what constitutes a "fly"? Is any single hook lure considered a fly? Is a jig a fly? Now, zone 2, flys and artificial lures. Are soft bodied lures permitted. Like Trout Magnets, or twister tail grubs, Road Runners, etc.? Zone 3 Only soft plastic bait, unscented or natural and scented bait allowed. But all flys and lures are prohibited even if natural or scent has been added. Does this make the now very popular on Taneycomo Gulp worm on a tiny jig head under a float illegal in zone 3. If it is not legal because it is a lure is it then legal in zone 2 because it is a lure? Now, if jigs are legal in zone 1 because they are a "fly", would the jig tipped with a Gulp worm be legal because it is considered a fly or lure in zone three? State revenue generation opportunities at their best. Now you need to have a lawyer accompany you on fishing trips!!!
