  1. I went yesterday the water was muddy from the darn area to around the Robert Allen ramp water temps from 62 to 66 the warmer water was on the north side of the lake in little Indian creek. Sounded to me the crappie were on the banks then moved off mid last week I did see people catching them in the timber. I bass fished from 6am to 11am caught 6 mostly small bass tight to the bank one on a buzzbait the others on a swim jig. The boat ramp was crazy when I took out.
  2. I’ve been down at Truman lake bass fishing the last 2 days caught some nice fish but they are so far and between. Is fishing lake of the Ozarks up near Warsaw worth a shot. Seems like they are running water and it’s kind of dingy. I see some coves and back water areas on google earth. Any info or opinions are appreciated
  3. So I’m guessing that most resorts around the lakes are closed if they are open I don’t know if I’d use them right now and all the campgrounds with Electric tent camping are closed I’m thinking about going to some conservation lakes that do have camping but no electric for charging batteries. I’ve got a power inverter for my truck. Is it ok to charge my batteries off this inverter. I know I’d have to run my truck for awhile but any charge is better then no charge. What’s your thoughts?
  4. Bass Mafia blade coffin made for spinnerbaits or chatterbaits. 6 months old like new. I’m asking $25 I’m in the St. Louis area if interested call Pat at 636-544-5441
  5. I’m a member of Bassholes Bassclub we are looking for some new members. This bass club is out of St Louis it is a draw for partner club we fish for heavyweight, heavy boat and big bass each winning $25 per Each tournament cost $30. If it’s a 2 day tournament you still just pay $30 for both days. It’s a very laid back club more about just fishing not so much about the money. We fish around ten trips a year all over the area some Illinois lakes mostly Missouri lakes some Arkansas lakes. We don’t weigh our fish they are all measured and released then your partner agrees on the total everyone is fishing against each other this makes this possible. We are looking for boaters and non boaters. This is a affordable way to fish some of the bigger lakes without owning a boat. If anyone’s interested give Gerry a call at 314-609-9872
  6. Where do you stay when you go to pickwick? Doesn’t seem to be anything on the lake near muscles shoals. If your fishing down the lake are you fishing the banks or out on the ledges. I’ll be fishing lake of the Ozarks this spring a bunch just looking for something diffrent.
  7. This spring is like to take a trip somewhere diffrent I’m thinking mid to late April. I’m not really looking for monster bass just good bass fishing. I’ll be taking a boat so I’d like to stay within 8 hours of St. Louis. I’ve been thinking about somewhere on the Tennessee River (Pickwick, Guntersville, Chickamauga) or somewhere in Louisiana seemed like there were a bunch of oxbow lakes near Vidalia that MLF fished last spring. If anybody has any suggestions or ideas let’s hear them.
  8. I was hoping to see them fish Stockton, Pomme, and Truman.
  9. Where is Big M ramp Where is Big M ramp
  10. The location on Jordan Lee’s post says somewhere in Missouri
  11. I don’t think it’s a Bass Pro Tour event. I think it’s either a Select or a Summit event they usually try to keep the locations secret until the day of the tournament.
  12. I seen a video this morning where KVD was talking about fishing a MLF Cup tournament in Missouri. Does anyone know what lake or lakes?
  13. I love eating flatheads and blue catfish I just didn’t know what to do with it. I couldn’t get it in my live well in one piece maybe not in 2 pieces. I didn’t have a cooler. I wanted to continue fishing.
  14. Got to 107 ramp at 6:30am ran towards the dam fished points and some off shore structure. Caught a few small bass on magnum trick worm went to Indian creek marina had a really good bass on came off at the boat. Decided to take a ride to the south fork area it was muddy so I ran back to the main lake and fished all the way back into a small creek at the very back in really shallow water there was a bunch of baitfish getting chased around so I threw everything back there that resembled baitfish with no luck. I picked up a brush hog started pitching to some standing timber I felt a big thump then watched my line slowly start moving. When I set the hook I knew it wasn’t a bass I fought the thing for a good 10 minutes it kept wrapping around trees and trying to go under the boat when it finally came up I wasn’t bothered by not having my net in the boat because it wouldn’t fit in my net anyhow. This is my biggest fish I’ve caught on rod n reel. 39.84lbs Flathead. Released in good shape. It made the front deck of my boat into a slip n slide and I think it ruined a fresh spool of florocarbon line I think it’s been stretched to much now it has a ton of memory. Caught a couple more bass. 2 keepers on the day
  15. I fished up there last October we missed the good bite by a week. Still caught plenty of fish almost every fish we caught were out of Lawrence lake a backwater on the Minnesota side throwing chatterbaits. We stayed in Stoddard Wisconsin at Waters edge resort it is about 10 miles south of Lacrosse. It was a nice place to stay had there own boat ramp, restaurant and a bar within walking distance. Great view of the river and good prices.
  16. When ideling the motor will die and I need to pump the primer bulb to restart. Then the motor will run great for a while then die again I’ll prime again. I’ve changed the gas cap this was Rangers idea the dealer had the boat they can’t find anything. Just recently I had a alarm for the fuel filter water seperater to be replaced since then this problem has been more frequent. This has been the most frustrating experience
  17. I’ve got a ranger aluminum boat it’s about a year old it has a 150 pro xs on it. The fuel line has a primer bulb I don’t see primer bulbs on the newer glass boats. Is this primer bulb nessasary. I’ve been having issues with fuel pressure since early summer the dealer and ranger have been no help.
  18. Thinking about coming down on Monday to fish Greer access hopefully for some smallmouth. Has anybody been down this way that can give me a river condition report and how the roads are. Looks like this area got more participation then where I’m from. Thanks for any info
  19. Bassholes Bass Club is looking for new members. Boaters or non boaters. No boat needed to fish tournaments. Very affordable and laid back tournaments. We fish several lakes in Missouri and a couple in Arkansas and Illinois. If interested call Gerry at 314-609-9872
  20. I know my oil is kinda low in the tank I got about 3" in the resevoir could it be telling me it's low
  21. Last Saturday I fished lake of the ozarks. I ran from Coffman up to Indian creek motor ran great fished awhile then went back to Coffman so my partner could the bathroom. Just after starting the motor I got 6 beeps from the motor. I checked the pisser it was good the motor never shut down so I ran nice and easy back to the ramp the motor ran great no more beeps so after the bathroom break I started the motor up again and got 6 more beeps the motor seemed fine the rest of the day but always got the beeps just after starting the motor. I called the dealer Monday the service guy said its a low voltage issue starting battery is weak. The motor starts fine I'm running helix 9s I keep the console unit on standby while not running the battery is less then a year old I keep the batteries on a Minn Kota charger. Anybody have experience with this issue? Thanks for any info
  22. Hi Mike I think I passed you while fishing across from Hawaiian island if that was you in the Crestliner I was in the silver aluminum Ranger. It was a beautiful day out there caught a bunch of bass nothing big biggest was 17" largemouth. Most fish were on a small brown jig and a shaky head tight to steeper banks. Now I'm wishing I would have tried a swim bait.
  23. Thanks for the info. I'll report how it goes tomorrow.
