  1. Solid motor 5 speed. Text /call Matt 4178947917. In Ozark.
  2. I stand corrected about fin and feather...thats great news! Rather them have my dollar anyhow.
  3. I was at Bass Pro around 10am and they had white in the Z-Man Zinkers for the Ned. I use the Strike King Zeros as well, they had one package of the PB&J. Some of the restock stickers said they'd be in today, but this was at 10am...I would call before making a trip. Also, I never see these items at Academy or Fin and Feather or Walmart for that matter. Good Luck.
  4. I'd recommend a 6wt rod. Streamers at night you can get by with much heavier lines. 2X leader 2x-5x Tippett. I'm a leech guy at night myself. But there is tons of info on his forum on nighttime streamer fishing.
  5. I'd rather wrestle a bob cat than be there opening day that falls on a weekend.
  6. This starts out with a big thanks to FFF and TFO. Back this past October we attened the FFF conclave in Mt. Home. For the kids that participated and registerd early they recieved a "free" fly rod combo courtsey of TFO. They got to tie a few flys and go to Dry Run Creek! Emma, Madi and myself set out yesterday on Taney and we got her on her first rainbow on her very own fly-rod. She loved it! Madi has already experianced this but this was Emmas first on her own gear. I know this fish is a dink, but that fish represents a whold new chapter in her life and fond memory for me. She caught it on an egg and we got lots more after this. Conditions got windy yesterdy so I had spinning gear as back up, Thank Goodness.

  8. Another one to check out is Silas Turnbo. Turnbo Manuscripts.http://thelibrary.org/lochist/turnbo/toc.html Once on the site do a key word search for "forsyth" very coold encounters of the past because he uses very specific lanmarks.
  9. Dad and I took a break from fishing one day a month or so ago. He and I have always been intrigued by what lies beneath Table Rock. We both have a the large USGS maps of the 1948 land survey for the resevoir project. It shows buildings, roads, cemetaries and such, very intersting. Most of us have all seen pictures of the old bridge, but we wanted to see if we could spot it on my down imaging. After some zig-zags and searching it appeared on the screen. Not the best pic, but I thought it's worth sharing. I believe it lies between the 2nd and 3rd pylon on the north end about 100 yards to the west of the bridge if I remember correctly. No GPS on my finder. If anyone has anything to add like this I'd love to see it.
  10. With the wife out of town I decided to do a little evening night fishing with my buddy Marcus. On the way down my Pop caught wind I was heading to the lake and he wanted to break in his new spinning rod...bad decision for us that is, he put us to shame conducting his clinic. He was using the Ned Rig and just catching the crud out of smallies just before dusk on a gravel bank. He had a great time, we all did. He decieded he gave us a good-enough lesson and we dropped him off. Marcus and I went back out using some deep crank baits off the bluffs above the treetops, and wouldn't you know this gem of a walleye happen grab on...It was a great night.
  11. Don't hate me, but I like the Mr. Crappie electric filet knife....HOWEVER, in passing I mentioned to my wife about the "Bubba Blade" and low-and-behold it showed up one day, and I have to say, it's pretty nice. I use it a lot when no power available. My dad on the other hand as the old school Bass Pro bone handled filet knife with the leather sheath, very nice, high carbon steel and works great, he bought it in the early 90's and has rarely sharpened it and it's still has a great edge.
  12. My brother and I had a great day at top of the rock. Phil said it best "surreal". We shook hands, autographs and walk the path with the players and governor Nixon (not stating anything political just the facts) and Johnny Morris. It was truly a blessed day for he and I. It's a beautiful place!
  13. I will be there Friday. Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the company I work for, is supplying all the transportation for the players. It was great to meet several of them as they were coming in. As Phil said, this is a great event for Branson and the area, rumor has it for the next four years it may be held in April.
