  4. 866-494-1993. The gentleman on the phone always answers and generally has what you need Are his initials CA? if so he's a fishing budy of mine. Outcaught me for the 1st time in history like 5 weeks ago. I still haven't heard the end of it. darn good attorney though 😅
  5. Bucket List Fish

    Guapote Central America. My dad just bought a place in Costa Rica. I'm hoping to cross this 1 off my to do list next year.
  6. Grandglaize Creek Float?

    No I'm in KC but always looking to get out. We're doing 2 rivers to Van Buren next weekend. Then my teaching job starts back up. Busy season is upon me again.

    If you're going to be a bear be a grizzly. but all the same I'd float with anyone any day. MZ
  8. Whatchya Drinking?

    Crane is 1of my absolute favorites. Their Beet Weiss is incredible as well. Everyone I have from their brewery has been very friendly, very knowledgeable, not snobby like many in their craft and most important love their jobs. I wish more people did what makes them happy. Too many crabby people in this world.
  9. Whatchya Drinking?

    I had a string of craft beer success tonight. Won't upload my Tallgrass brewery Manhattan KS Key Lime Pie photo. Doozie though. Get it if you see it. All were good. The cucumber saison and the watermelon kolsch I probably won't target again. The others are definitely on my frequent flyer list

    In the immortal words of Emo Phillips "the party was great...from the sounds of the letter"
  11. So we got on about noon on Friday and finished Sunday about noon. The river was moving fast but water color was great. There was massive flood damage throughout most of the trip and in certain areas apparently a tornado had hit a couple of days after the flood had subsided. All said and done, we had 2 dicey runs. The 1st was at an island. The main channel appeared to have a tree down across the entire width of the river. Current was strong enough that we knew we couldn't get down to investigate and get back up if it was blocked. We chose to float, drag through the off channel side. It was cumbersome with 2 fully loaded canoes but was definitely the safe decision and we never questioned our decision. The 2nd we had no choice but to run it. It was at least an s-curve...felt like a double or triple. Both of us float with the Spring Creek Outriggers so we are sluggish and wide loads. We made it to the last downed tree relatively unscathed but Kevin got tied up in the last tree. I fortunately cut wide enough on the bend prior, so I was able to push outside of him and hit the run. Fishing was good Friday, better on Saturday and then I got shutout on our 4 mile float on Sunday. Kevin had success on Texas rigged hula grubs and craws in watermelon or green pumpkin and caught a few on fluke shad. I had the majority of my catches on green and brown jigs trailing a green pumpkin slider and a texas rigged 4 inch green pumpkin "senko imposter". I also caught a few on a 1/2 oz. white rooster tail and white and black 3/8 oz. Willow spinner. Nothing big but tons of action and all very healty fish. The guys at Rich's were very good to us and were busy with flood cleanup when we showed up and when we got back. They will be at it for a long time. Here are a few photos from the trip. We can't wait to get back out as soon as possible.
  12. What's Cooking?

    I just ate and that made me hungry again!
  13. Good evening everyone, I'm looking for some feedback on which river to float next weekend. Putting on somewhere Friday afternoon. Pulling off whenever we are done Sunday. 18-30 miles is our comfort zone as we are fishing 1st. Paddling is a nuisance unless it is directional for fishing cover or back upstream to hit a good spot again. We were thinking Big Piney or Gasconade but they look pretty out of sorts still and just got significant rain again. Jack's Fork and Current are great but a bit of a haul from KC for 2 days on the river. We've done the Niangua from Bennett to Lead Mine a bunch so that's always an option. I've been trying to talk my buddy into the James for a number of years and we are still yet to float it. Anyone with up close opinions of these rivers right now, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks, Mark

    Great video and awesome song to go with it. My wife and I saw them in concert last summer. They were 1 heck of a live show! We are big fans of Piney River Brewery as well.
