  1. I agree. She is pretty small for her age and it was a big part of the reason i ended buying the 5.56/.223 instead of a .308. With the adjustable stock and very low recoil she shoots it better than I do. She put probably 300+ rounds through it and really had it dialed in. It fits her perfect and she is comfortable shooting it. We started with a red dot sight and limited her to 75 yards. She has already told me she wants a regular scope next year as we had several deer that were out of range for the red dot but she could have probably taken with a scope. Several in the 90-125 yard range. Looks like I get a good excuse to by a scope!
  2. Her second year hunting. She’s a natural when it comes to shooting but wasn’t sure if she could actually pull the trigger. We had several opportunities and this played out perfectly. I told her that she would take the first deer that gave her the shot and even though it’s not a big one, we were both happy (I think I was more excited than she was) She’s hooked now and wants to wait for a buck next year. She’s 11, I didn’t get my first deer until I was 16!
  3. Congrats Bill! What an awesome fish.
  4. Going to be lots of boat traffic especially on friday through monday with labor day weekend coming up. I usually limit my fishing time from daybreak to about 9 or 10 am. I have been having good luck on topwater and swimbaits the last couple weekends. Look for deep points with gravel. Been sitting in 30-50 feet of water and either watching the graph for bait and fish or looking for surfacing fish. A buddy of mine has been having good luck on jigs and 10 inch plastic worms around timber in 20-25 feet of water. Hope this helps and stay safe out there, the lake gets crazy on holidays.
  5. right place, right time, right conditions and right baits. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. Couldn't repeat the same thing on sunday morning, had a thunderstorm blow through and the fish weren't on any of the points i fished saturday.
  6. Fished from 6-9 am. Had lots of top water activity this morning. Fishing a spook and 3.8 keitech on a 1/4 oz head. Had close to 30 fish with only 5 or 6 keepers. Had the trifecta this morning but mostly spots. Lost a real nice smallie at the boat that almost made me cry, biggest smallmouth I have ever seen. Fished mainly deep points with timber. Boat was in 30-50 feet of water the whole time and the graph was completely lit up the whole time. They were just flat out feeding this morning and it was an absolute blast. Got lucky and picked the right spot and the right baits.
  7. We've caught several walleye at stockton with that humpback shape, a few would have been keepers if you could have straightened them out. never kept one to eat so don't know if they are worth eating or not.
  8. No size, all were between 15-16 inches. I have had Musky try to take fish away from me at Pomme but never had a bass do it. Would love to have seen that! We have fished Stockton all my life and I have never seen the lake as busy as it was Saturday. Everything from 30+ foot Cigarette boats blasting by at high speed to the slow lumbering big houseboats. We agreed we would try avoid the weekends and fish during the week now that dad is retired.
  9. Put in a Roark about 7 am and started trolling the flats, nothing, not even a bite. Headed up around old state park and trolled the main lake points and some shollower bluffs. Caught 3 walleye, 2 drum and white bass. All in about 20-22 fow on shad colored cranks. The walleye bite was weird, never had one just hit the crank, all three that we caught came when we would hang the crankbait up on something and then as soon as we would get it unhung the fish would hit it. Usually can't keep the 12-14 inch spots off the trolled cranks but we didn't catch a single bass all day. Left around 2 when the pleasure craft completely took over the lake. It looked like Table Rock on a holiday weekend so we headed for the truck.
  10. Go to the Missouri State Highway patrol website, click on the water patrol link and then click on the regatta permits. You can enter the lake, month and year and see all the permits issued for a specific day. For this Friday it looks like tourney going out of Indian Point, Chateau on the Lake, Campbell Point, Cape Fair and Mill Creek. Here's the link to regatta permit webpage https://www.mshp.dps.missouri.gov/WP04Web/app/searchRegattaWeb?action=Search+Again
  11. I use that same minnow bucket. It works really well. we also buy the 1 oz bottle of G Juice and put about 8-10 drops of in with minnows. we have been able to keep minnows alive for 3-4 days with the G juice and changing the water out a couple times times per day.
  12. Just make sure the person you are selling to is able to own a gun, don't sell to minor or convicted felon. Its a good idea to print off a bill of sale and have them sign it so you can prove the sale was made and you no longer own the gun.
  13. Never had 4 big ones on the same day, usually a limit of 15-18 inchers. This is my biggest, just fooling around on the dock by working an inline spinner like a spoon while waiting to take the kids swimming .
  14. Good Luck. Won't be the same around here without your posts. Thanks for all the advice on catching walleye.
  15. I was thinking the same thing Wrench. I thought you could only shoot rough fish, carp, gar, etc. I didn't think game fish were legal to shoot. Are bluegill not game fish? You can use perch and bluegill for bait so maybe they aren't game fish.
