    It all comes down to paying attention, slowing the heck down in potentially dangerous situations, and using COMMON SENSE. Of course, it's impossible to use something you don't possess.

    Hey Steve, sorry you had this encounter. I fished derbies for 40 years and still fish one occasionally, but the disrespect shown by SOME (that means NOT ALL)  tournament anglers for EVERYONE else on the lake is one reason that Donna and I decided that we'd rather fish for fun than money. For us, the two just were not synonymous anymore.
    Hope your rig is running good now and that you are finding some fish to catch. Fall fishing is coming soon.

    I know I'm stating the obvious to boaters who know... it's boating 101.
    Port to Port.
    I see ppl on this lake all the time cutting across to my right instead of staying on their right.  They see a straighter line instead of staying port to port.  They don''t know.
    We balk at the boater's license here at the marina because there's a lot of young adults that want to rent a boat and can't  because we can't issue the temp license - because they've already  been issued one (that's the limit - one) and they won't take the time to get the real license.  But may be everyone should be required to take some kind of simple exam of basic boating navigation.

    For those of you that have never been to this location, please keep quiet.  Two row boats could collide here in the right situation and it takes almost nothing for one boat to ride up over the other boat. If your hull is 1 inch higher than the other object momentum is going to take the means of less resistance at most any speed and cause you to lift over the other object, instead of breaking thru it.
    This is the case weather the object be a dock another boat a log floating in the water or your trailer at the ramp.  Slick hulled boats are either gliding over the top or airborne, just a matter of physics.
    Son Steven and I were there at 9:30 and the MSHP was working the scene.  
    This is a hairpin turn by the Emerald Beach ramp just below Viney Creek.  One of the drivers was cutting the hair pin on the WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD.
    The lake is wide enough there to not be a problem, however you can cut the hairpin if you are headed up stream and it looked like this is what happened.  You cannot see around that corner as it is a bluff bank.
    Conditions on the lake at the time were wonderful.  No fog, full visibility and beautiful.  Really no boat traffic at all yesterday in the upper white.
      Someone screwed up.  Be just like you or I deciding to get in the truck and go around every inside blind corner or curve on the wrong side of the road.instead of staying in the outside or our own lane.
    Terrible shame.

    Everyone should show respect for the position of POTUS, regardless of your personal feelings about the man. If you don't like the man, do your part to vote in someone else. But don't disrespect the office -- that rubs a lot of us the wrong way who put our lives on the line for this still-great country.

    Like any good golfer, I've got all the shots!
    Kansas City forecast for Tuesday is a high of 56 and Wednesday is 60.
    And they're sayin' snow in Colorado and western Kansas.

    Vernon, in my 30 years coming down I have had everything for upper 90's to 50's in September.  Snow would not suprise me.  I prefer not to sweat so cooler is better.

    Yeah, well,  we're headed back down on the 12th and until you can put our weeklong visit in that rearview mirror it won't be safe to go outside!
    How's everyone feel about snow in mid September this year?
