  1. Here's something from AGFC. @Ham https://www.agfc.com/en/news/2019/08/23/land-donation-increases-future-opportunities-on-white-river/
  2. Can't get the link to work, but short story is 5 acres along the White river below lake Sequoyah was donated to AGFC.
  3. Great report! Good to hear Frank is still alive and well.
  4. Duane Doty is another option, I'd at least talk to Duane and see what his take is on fall fishing for walleye on the upper end of Bull.
  5. I use the EWG for C-rigs and T-rigs, but lately I have been using screw locks a lot to try and avoid the plastic pulled down to the hook bend situation on a bite. I do rig as shown in pic #1 on finesse worms.
  6. ell I just shot myself in the foot. My original lineup was Zaldain, Pipkens, Gustafson, Yelas, and Herren - I decided, after reading some "expert" advice, to switch out Zaldain, Pipkens, and Yelas for Herren, Combs and Hudnall. Zaldain is 1st Pipkens is 4th. After day 1 I could've had 3 of the top 4. It's early, but most of my guys, with the exception of Gustafson, are already significantly behind. Grrrrrrrrrr……….
  7. There's a certain dock in Beardsley that holds schools of jumbo sized largemouth year round. Pretty easy to catch, just cast a wacky rigged Senko near one of the dock cables and wait for the thump. However, one of the dock owners is a bit psycho. If he sees you anywhere near the dock, he'll throw rocks at you and make nasty comments about you and your family. There's also the rabid mink that inhabits that dock, sneaky little devil, you won't even know he's there until you feel him chewing on your ankle. PM OA member Abkeenan for GPS coordinates to the dock.
  8. I have had one knee replaced, before replacement it wasn't too bad and all of a sudden it got so bad I had to hold on to the wall for a minute when I got out of bed in the morning. I jacked around with the cortisone shots but looking back should've just gone with the replacement and got it over with. If you go that hyaluronic route it will be interesting to hear how it works out for you, just in case my other knee starts going south. Getting the knee replaced is not fun, but the pain during the rehab part was never as bad as it was before the replacement.
  9. Never seen one of those before. Looks like a punk style Preying Mantis with the pink coloration and the spikey back.
  10. Looks like we have another one this week, less than 3 days to get your lineup in.
  11. 4 lbs. separate #1 from #10. Yelas is my last man standing.
  12. Kudos to the young man! That's doing pretty darn good for this time of year.
  13. I am trying to stay away from the Rock, too far to drive for only a few hours of morning fishing. So I'd rather not see a report like this as it will make me want to head over there. However sounds like it was a lot of fun!
  14. A guy I used to work with took an annual one week trip to Wisconsin with his brother to musky fish. If they caught three in a week they thought that was good. Catching 3 in a day is pretty cool.
  15. Just think how big it would look if you long armed it. 😀 Nice one!
  16. Feider either caught some good ones late or BassTrakk was off, but he is now my number one guy. Lots of guys within striking distance.
  17. Well I don't have either two of those guys in my lineup. And it's all about who I have. 😄 I do have Feider, and he is spinning out. Looks to me to be one of those tourneys where there's going to be a bunch of guys doing around 20 lbs. per day. If you have an 8 lb. day (Feider) it's going to be tough to overcome that deficit. Other 4 guys I have are doing OK. Harvey Horne, my Bella Vista homie, is doing well, I don't have him on my team because basically he hasn't done well at all this year, but hope he can hang in there and contend.

    Great Books

    Been reading some Adrian Goldsworthy - he is a Roman historian and has written quite a few books on different subjects from that time. It's pretty readable, written more for the layman than other historians. And he does write some fiction, the Vindolanda series of which there are now 2 books with another due out soon. It follows the adventures of a Centurion named Ferox stationed in what in now England.
  19. Welcome indeed, that's quite the fishing resume!
  20. I believe the Coast Guard thing is given to you once you pass a CG inspection. Certainly not necessary, but if it's something you want, why not? Do a search on CG vessel requirements to see what you'll need to do.
  21. The BPT Redcrest championship is being held on pools 7 and 8 from August 21-25. If you have the time to watch some live coverage you can pick up some tips.
  22. Congrats! I love to fish, but not in lightning, I would've called it a day too.
  23. Are they busting on small shad? If so, try a small spoon, like a 1/4 oz Kastmaster or a 1/2 oz jigging spoon. You have to be fast, cast it right to the boil as soon as you can, let the spoon sink for a 1/2 to one second,then give it a rip. Rip and drop back to the boat. I like to spray paint the flat side of a silver Kastmaster white - I use Krylon spray paint - and hang a #6 feathered treble on the back. I use 5 lb. Maxima on a light spinning set up. They aren't named Kastmaster for nothing, you can launch that 1/4 oz with the right tackle.
  24. Seeing Bo's post reminds me of something else, if I am vertical fishing for bass, I try to keep my bait in front of the boat, or to put it another way, I try not to fish a spot after my boat has drifted over it. I'm pretty convinced that the boat, or it's shadow, when passing over the fish, spooks them.
