  1. Walleyed Mike, I will be sure to hit my knees when I am at that ramp !!!! Walcrabass
  2. To All, Interesting reading on the OPEC oil embargo................ One theory I have always had is this............... Along with all the other stuff like oil prices etc. that are mentioned in the article, it also mentions the reduction in speed on our highways from 70 to 55 MPH. In my opinion for an economy that is supplied and moves largely by trucks this reduction in speed made a directly correlated/ directly proportional slow down in our economy........... Thus we got double, triple, quadruple ( depends on how you look at the big picture ) whammy-ed during this time !!! No wonder my teen years were so tough !!!! Walcrabass
  3. To All, I definitely remember the Gas Wars !!! I also remember asking my Dad what the little 4 meant on the gas pump. He replied that is was 4 tenths of a penny and explained it to me. Gas that day was 12.4 cents per gallon. In the wars as I remember they would cut 1/10 th of a cent at a time to fight the competition. Just for something to do................. Look up the price of gas in Venezuela right now.......... Don't cry too much................... Walcrabass

    Olfishhead, Your reply definitely helps !! Looks like we could expect 5 to 6 years of age for a Crappie if it did not get caught and end up in the oil !! I am kind of the old farmer type of guy. If the hog will live long enough and you keep feeding it the hog will get bigger. I think bumping the length limit on the Crappie to 11 inches might be a good idea. We could deal with a bad year or two if we had to do that. As for the Bass........ I am so grateful for the 12" length on the Kentuckies and I tout the Biologist that instituted it the highest !!!! Smart person !!! I do believe there is room for a slot on the Largemouth though. Something like cannot keep anything ( for tournaments either) from 17" to 19". My opinion is these are prime spawning size/age Bass. And of course nothing under 15" either. Thanks for the information. Hugely appreciated. Walcrabass

    Olfishhead, You are obviously a person with a great deal of knowledge on this topic. I greatly appreciate you contributing to the post. What is the expected life span of a Crappie in Stockton Lake? 6 Years?? Maybe they could withstand a couple of bad years to reach the 11" or 12" Length limit?? I remember when the Crappie length was 8" on Stockton and the Bass were 11" ????? Somewhere along the way we bumped it up a little?? Walcrabass

    Rootman, I am so glad you sent the picture of the 13" and the 11" Crappie. This shows exactly why I have been asking for a 12" length limit on Stockton for the Crappie. Just LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE in SIZE ? !!? !!!!! 1. Stockton has a good supply of Crappie. Black and White both.................... 2. Stockton has a great supply of Shad.................... 3. Stockton is obviously deep enough to hold these type of fish, even through the worst winters and hottest summers. Fish Biologist please answer me.................. Why don't we have a 12" length limit on the Crappie in Stockton Lake??? You helped us out greatly with the lowered length limit for the Kentucky Bass please help us out with this one too !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Walcrabass
  7. Lifes2short, I see on your posts that you like Fly fishing in Colorado. Have you ever been to Westcliff or Silvercliff? I have fished there a couple of times and it was really good. PM me and I can give you some details. Walcrabass
  8. Dutch, On the trailer.................. I put mine on so that the trailer comes out slightly below the bend of the hook. Then add the trailer hook on top of it and of course something to keep it there. I do not have problems with the trailer hook getting the way of the action even if I am using long tail skirts on the Spinnerbait. The trick I have found is to keep everything slightly below the bend in the main hook. Freefallin, Yep, Red Colorado is a killer........... love it on Chartreuse OR White Baits. Walcrabass
  9. Dutch, Your choice of the Red Head etc. Spinnerbait has got to be a true killer, dip the tip of tails in Red Dye and even better. I don't have any JUST like yours but close. Are the blades a Size 5 and 4? Also for this time of year and in the Spring I use a Chartreuse Head, Chartreuse body, Chartreus Big Colorado, and Red Small Colorado. Then add a Chartreuse/Pepper Split tail trailer ( with the tips dipped in Red Dye ) and of course a Trailer Hook. A great Dirty Water and Cloudy day pattern. I have used this one for over 40 years.

  10. Skeeter, The Oak trees get whacked pretty good when the water stays up too long. They will make good " debris" in the water as they fall apart. Hopefully when they fall over from wind or no living root system to hold them up anymore they will end up in the lake. Nothing better than a laydown with the roots at the bank and the trunk and top in the water........... you get hung up less on those kind !!!!!! Walcrabass
  11. Awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fried Kentuckies. Nothing better.................
  12. Yakattack, I would like to have some email addresses to send in my two cents worth. We have enough problems with public access and don't need to start anymore. I always think of Kansas and what has happened to the ability to float a creek or river...................... disaster................. Walcrabass

  14. Dutch, Must be City Folk........................ want to get it at the counter in the store, take it home, eat it............... no problem-o. Walcrabass
  15. Dutch, Please ice them down, give them to someone else ( neighbor??) and they can clean them at dark. Gotta get them out of the lake............. Walcrabass
