  1. Still cannot access OAF from home computer

    I was wiped out after the tourney yesterday so I didn’t make it to Bill’s. Phil said he will go over there one of these days and get in touch with one of us techies and try to get this issue resolved.
  2. Kudos to Seth!

    Definitely plenty of fish to be caught. Finding wuality is the hard part. We only had two over a pound a several .75-.90s.
  3. Kudos to Seth!

    I wish I had that same luck at these trout tournaments.

    How is Babler from Lilley's? I'll be down to fish the Masters this weekend. If I have some downtime after the tourney, I could swing by and try a few things to see if we can get OAF working.

    Weird. I can't find anything about that ISP when I do a search for it. I'm assuming it is a WISP that offers fixed wireless service? The only two WISP's that show up for Nixa are Total Highspeed and WON.
  6. Size vs Quantity?

    Nice fish. I'm all about catch and release, but it's never a bad thing to keep a limit of small ones to eat. Too many fish equals more competition for food and that ain't good either. The thing with fish is that once they get to a decent size, they should be cared for and put back for the next person to enjoy. Killing big fish is the problem. Those little guys get replenished every time the stock truck pulls up.

    Are you sure Truman doesn’t have them? LoZ is full of threadfin shad.
  8. A little fishing during a snow storm

    Supposed to be in the 50s Friday through sunday this weekend! Hallelujah!
  9. Got down to the park about 12:30 just as the last two anglers were packing up and heading out. I fished from 12:30 to 4 and had the whole river to myself. Fishing was good. Lots of midging activity. My total fish count was between 20-30. I quit counting after 15 and caught several more after that. Most of the fish were between 1-1.5#. I'm not sure I ever did catch anything real small. My two best fish came on back to back casts by the bathroom hole. The first good fish was an 18 incher that I plucked from the fast water upstream of the falls. The next cast was below the falls and it produced a 21" rainbow that weighed just over 4#. The trout were midging heavily and I think a guy with a soft hackle or a crackleback on a fly rod could have really put a hurting on the fish. There are quite a few trout over 20" in the stream right now. I wasn't looking real hard for them and I spotted at least a half dozen. Nothing gigantic, but all about like the one I landed. I also saw a trout about like the biggest one that I caught floating dead in the moss down by the river bend near the back parking lot. My guess is somebody caught it and then beat it all around and held it out of the water for a lengthy period of time trying to get pictures and stressed it to death. That is a shame. If you catch a nice fish, keep it in a net in the water while you get things ready. As you can see, the big one I caught today is still in the net with it's head in the water. If I let it flop around on the gravel for several minutes while I fumbled around getting my phone, chances are it too would have died. The net is also what I use for weighing fish. Leave the fish in the net and then clip the scale to the net. No sense is risking damage to the gills.Of course you have to deduct the weight of the net to get the actual fishes weight. I think my net weighs around .20 so the fish was just a smidge over 4#.
  10. OAF on the Meramec

    If I ain't snagging or fishing a tournament, I'll definitely be there!

  12. King Of The River

    I never met the man, but I remember my buddy talking about Duffy back in the mid to late 2000’s when he was going to college in Springfield. Duffy gave him some pointers and helped hiM with his fly fishing several times back then.
