  2. Watching some live coverage, they are rocking and rolling in the waves. Kind of like fishing the Rock when the wake boats are out in force.
  3. Gobies get my vote for Sturgeon Bay.
  4. I started fishing an ALX Zolo McSmalls this year, 7 1/2 foot rod. I use braid to flouro leader and this rod will cast 1/8-1/4 oz jigheads with 2.8 or 3.2 Keitechs very well. I also use it for 1/8 oz Ned rigs. It's a great rod for those applications and I really enjoy fishing with it. I've picked up a couple of accidental stripers on while fishing keitechs and it can handle them, though it is a bit adventurous. Think I have a pic. One thing it is does not have a full cork handle which for some is a must have, This one also came on the McSmalls.
  5. Statesboro blues is my #1. Lyrics are funny too. Written in 1928.
  6. That's good that they stock some down river. How many do you think are in a raft load?
  7. I'm a sucker for these things, I'll probably buy one or five..
  8. You know how paranoid guides are when it comes to their secret spots - that's a camo pattern - in case someone is out there flying a drone around looking for where the guides are fishing. No way that boat can be spotted from directly overhead.
  9. Nothing on the BASS web site yet, but word is Cayuga is cancelled.
  10. That is a mess of gills. Love eating them but hate cleaning them.
  11. Sorry to hear that. When I hit the road I was really wheelingHad gravel flying and rubber squealingAnd I didn't slow down till I was almost to ArkansasI think I'm going to reroute my tripI wonder if anybody'd think I'd flippedIf I went to L.A., via Omaha
  12. They stock grass carp here in the Bella Vista lakes for weed control purposes. I accidentally snag one every once in a while, certainly would be fun on the fly. In the winter sometimes I'll see one on it's side or belly up acting real sluggish almost like they are dying but as far as I can tell they are healthy, dunno what is up with that, maybe you guys do. Anyway I like to sneak up on them when they are like that and whack them with my rod tip, talk about an explosion, LOL.
  13. You can reply here and say that you are in. As an entry fee we ask that you donate any amount you want to a charity of your choice. Or you can donate to CAM: http://christianactionministries.org/main/
  14. OK starting the sheet, I am signed up. Reply to this thread and I will add you to the list. Quillback Snagged in outlet 3 MoGuy1973
  15. Well I'd say if you gave her that tip with the thought that would be your OA entry fee, then that would work, or if not, next time out you can do the same (assuming good service from the waitress). No one has signed up yet BTW, I will to get the ball rolling, I am thinking I'll hit Beaver that Saturday, might have an outside chance at getting an 18" smallie.
  16. August 7 at the pond behind the Metfield Clubhouse, open to children between 3 and 15. POA membership not necessary. Registration starts at 7;30 AM, fishing is from 8 AM until noon. Call the lakes department (479.855.5068) if you have any questions. Parents do not need a license but must not aid children in reeling in the fish. Participants must provide their own bait and tackle. In the past they have always stocked catfish for this event and I assume they will this time also. Pretty much cut grass down to the edge of the water so lots of space to spread out.
  17. That's pretty neat, good way to combine exercise and fishing.
  18. He's been known to do that. 😀
