  1. 😊Duck hunting is starting for me next Tuesday
  2. I called back then as well and got more of a solid answer that it was being discontinued.
  3. I stopped by Extreme in Branson West this morning. The metered braid that I spoke of above is called Lure Pro Multi-color and comes in 10/2, 328 yds for $14.00 plus tax, S&H. They do not have it in stock but can get it and will ship to you. Call Jack at Extreme 417-272-0305
  4. I found the same thing when I tried to buy it on line - I'm thinking that these on line sources just haven't changed their web info - I believe the company just don't make the stuff anymore and what I bought and what you might find on the web is just left over stuff. I recommend googling Simmons - there is or was a gun dealer in the Kansas City area by this name but I don't think this is the same company. Yes, I did use the stuff from Extreme but could not find the empty box last night and it is OK - I drive by there daily and will stop soon to see if they still have and/or can get it and let you know.
  5. Correction above feet not yrds. Also I looked on website suggested by Moguy and they show 10/2 there. Better get it while you can.
  6. Randy is correct. After he took me walleye fishing and showed me how to troll with metered line , I searched high and low for the the stuff he uses, PowerPro 10/2. I ended up buying several large spools on ebay and on a Simmons webpage. You might try these two places again, but I think I bought all that was left in the free world. 😀 However, a few months back I was telling Jack at Extreme Outdoors about this and he and Kelly found a new product with similar if not exact specs. except the color changes are 30 yards instead of 25. They bought some for me to try. Short answer - look on the web for PowerPro or call Extreme and talk to Jack. Bobby
  7. This is why I don't teal hunt at least with the dog anymore - by the time the big duck season starts in Missouri & SE Kansas, the snakes are usually asleep. My Cheyenne Bottoms story above is an exception which is why I don't go there anymore.
  8. Sorry, I can't make that out - what kind of snake?
  9. These snakehead creatures have been captured in Georgia and have moved as for as to the waters of northeast Kansas. They can travel in water or on land. - WOW, scary. https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/10/us/georgia-invasive-snakehead-trnd/index.html
  10. We use to duck hunt at Cheyenne Bottoms in western Kansas. Some of the marshes were lined with rip rap. Although it was pretty cold (not super cold because we were always there is the early part of the season), sometimes when you walked down the rock bank into the marsh, you would hear all this rattling. I got in the habit of carrying the dog down into the water. If the midday sun came out and it got warm there would be hundreds of these rattle snakes on the gravel roads running thru the area. You could not drive for running over some which was OK with me. Between the long drive to get there and the snakes I just got sick of going there.
  11. You must face your demons. Get it "face". Bobby
  12. I've heard stories that the Flat Creek area is full of water snakes - particularly Water Moccasin. The lady that cuts my hair lives across from Flat Creek restaurant and has a slip in the dock across from the restaurant. She will not even go down to the dock as she claims the area has snakes. A friend told me that the Flat Creek access off Hwy EE and on down is full of poisonous snakes - boat loads. I was over at Bridgeport today working on my duck boat so I drove over to EE. It looks really nice but pretty narrow. Have any of you floated up there and/or fished up there or know about the snakes? I imagine there are some deeper holes. Bobby
  13. Although not encouraged by Bill's report because if he can't do it, I don't have much of a chance, but since this was a nice morning until about 9:30, I went out anyway (dam area as well). Looked in the type of ground that has been talked about recently. Found a couple on the graph on the cove sides of a run out - caught one nice 3lb SM. It popped off as I raised it into the boat. GPO jig with similar colored trailer. Spent the rest of the time cruising and staring at the graph.
