    Pesky Invasive Largemouth Bass Oh My!

    Bucket biology is never ok, but does anything actually thrive naturally in that lake? The article states that Chinook Salmon, Char, and Trout are the only species STOCKED by the Alaskan fish and wildlife in that lake. Seem like they don't want Bass messing up the fish they CHOSE to plant, which is understandable, but diminishes my angst a bit.

    How is the Park Fishing?

    Sounds great! Thank you for the info. I know it took beating when I was there in late May of last year.

    How is the Park Fishing?

    I have not fished much this year. Thinking of taking my boys out for a day. How has the park recovered since last year? I have not been down since last winter and we fished the river.

    Anyone tired the Compass 360 brand of waders? I have bad luck with 3 pairs of Frog Toggs that have leaked out of the box. http://compass360gear.com/WADERS/2111145-Tailwater-Breathable-Chest-Wader_2.html

    Your first "big" smallmouth?

    Lots of great stories. Mine was a hair under 18 out of the Huzzah last year. Nothing different on that day besides the rain and parade of floaters running aground on the same non discript tree in the middle of a benign stretch of water. With a 50 yard window you would have thought the river navigation would have been better. Most memorable came from the Mineral Fork. The sole of my shoe became separated from the rest so I was attempting to walk upstream. I wasn't really fishing much just kind of slinging around slowly trudging to my car. Anyway came to a small riffle with a tree crossing over it. Didn't really cast just kind of dunked my fly in while walking. Felt the strike, shoe caught in the current, and into the laydown I went. The water was shallow, but man that hurt. Caught the fish though and at the time it was my biggest about 16 inches. Totally not worth it though.

    Charlie Strong did great at Louisville and is doing fine in South Florida. It was always going to be Herman at Texas and Strong was not exactly welcomed. So yeah, I think you need to consider it. Likely, it will be a mid major guy, but that is always high risk/high reward. I heard a rumor about a certain coordinator from the Giants. I seriously doubt it is true and I don't imagine it would be well received.

    I agree. Whoever they get has to either be an ace recruiter or someone that can develop talent. This staff doesn't appear to be able to do either. I think for MU to be successful you have to be able to develop players. Plenty of SEC schools such as A@M and TN have loads of talent, but neither coach can develop. MU is going to have to find a coach from a mid major who is ready to take the next step. Unfortunately, I think there are going to be a lot of good jobs open so the timing is not ideal. I think you need to give Charlie Strong a look. He never fit in Texas and that was doomed from the start, but he could be great for MU.

    After today I think you gotta fire Odom. You could say last year the mistakes were youth, but this team is extremely poorly coached and appears to regressed from last year. Lack of talent doesn't help, but the coaching is atrocious and Heupal's offense doesn't work against any decent defense.

    Anyone still feeling optimistic? Mine optimism was shredded after the 1st quarter of the MO State game. Purdue does not look like a push over against a Mizzou team that looks a lot like last year. We have to win tomorrow or we are in big trouble.

    Looks like Jontay Porter will in fact skip his senior year and enroll at MU this fall. Top 3 class. If Cuanzo can coach this could be fun for a few years. The only one and done is MP. Jontay will be around for awile.
  15. I fished for bass with a baitcaster for years, then fly fished exclusively for 8 years. Now I do both and it is usually seasonal. Spring is fly rod for bluegill, trout, and bass. Summer is baicaster for when bass go deep amd my lakes get overgrown and winter is fly fish for trout. I like it all. I don't fish enough rivers...maube when the kids get older. The biggest issue at this stage of life is finding time. I spend to much on fishing, but you can't take your money with you. Think too many feel it has to be one or the other. There is a time and place for it all.
