    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.
  2. 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.
  3. Nice bass yesterday

    Yeah, we spend a lot of time at pond down the street catching Bluegill. He loves it. Then he caught a bass and now he wants to that, but realizing it is a bit more challenging. Yesterday, was the first time I took him to fish with my buddy so he was pretty enamored with him. A legend in a little boys eyes I am sure. My buddy was a great sport about it. A lot of times I just load up both my boys and we just go look at rivers, lakes, creeks, playground etc. It sounds kind of hokey, we call it adventuring, but they love it.
  4. Nice bass yesterday

    Thank you. He really wanted to fish yesterday, but changed his mind when he got to the lake. He had fun, but wasn't feeling the fishing today. I usually wait for him to ask to go...so he doesn't feel pressured to say "yes" when he doesn't want to. He does a great job, but at times he just wants to go and explore.
  5. Caught this nice one yesterday and several more just a bit smaller. Been a long time since I caught that many big fish in a day. It was hard to leave, but the little guy wanted to head home. My buddy caught several nice ones as well.
  6. Current trip

    Yeah, the cable is much deeper than it used to be and a more challenging wade. There were about 5-6 angler's fishing it Saturday so we moved on. I did good on terrestials/hopper along the bank as well.
  7. Current trip

    Finally, made it down to the Current on Saturday. Boy was it crowded. Tan Vat was full of what I assume was a family reunion. Rarely, do I see floaters between Tan Vat and Baptist, but I bet we saw 30 boats. Many doing the same float over and over again. Their river too, but kinda hard not be a bit annoyed in a stretch usually dominated by wading. It was an all day thing too, not just a passing group. Fishing was pretty solid. Caught a bunch on topwater. Lost a giant Brown on a stone fly that snapped me off. That fish was hot. It will be along time before I hook into another one that big. Still have the image of that giant's jump burned into my brain. It was a holy crap that thing is huge type moment. Seriously, that fish was huge. Fished upstream from Parker a bit in evening. It has been awhile since I have fished that stretch. I don't remember it being that deep upstream. We probably should have walked the trails further, but we were running out of daylight. Managed a few small Rainbows and Brown's but needed to find better water to wade. River has changed, but not as much as I would have thought in the spots we usually fish. Baptist Access looked fine after the cleanup, but since I didn't see it before the flood not sure if it did any damage. I don't know why we thought we could bushwhack upstream from Baptist....that was a bad move in summer time. Need to explore Parker a bit more, but it seemed tough to wade. We had a great time, but as usual would have liked to stay another day or two.
  8. more weirdness

    I'd agree Norm your a much better guy than I. Probably smart to keep you cool. I would have called the cops as that is stalker type behavior. No doubt they just wanted to piss you off, but they need a lesson.

    So this must be where Jim Mcelwain was vacationing.... http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2708815-florida-coach-jim-mcelwain-on-viral-photo-of-naked-man-on-shark-it-isnt-me

    That is good one to fish. fish quite a bit with my fly rod. Mostly small bass, but there are a boatload.

    You will probably want a lake with minimal moss at first. Catfish lakes are pretty wide open and they hold all species.
  12. Winter 2016/17

    Jig and pig along the rocks in winter is killer....especially in lakes it is to mossy in summer. Nice redear and bluegill fishing in many lakes....just gotta look around a bit.
  13. Fishing with the kiddos

    Mom was with us. She took the pictures. No way I take them alone. One adult per child is my motto... and always within reach of the 2 year old. Found a nice shallow spot with no current so they could get there feet wet. Most of the stream I would never dream of taking them. 2 year old had a life jacket on most of the time. He was most interested in the playground and rock throwing so minimal time fishing.
  14. Fishing with the kiddos

    My 4 year old caught this nice Bass on a horny toad a few weekends ago. Also took the kiddos out to Montauk for a quick trip to take advantage of the eight inchers. Not sure if you can see the expressions of my 2 year old, but the faces he makes cracks me up.
  15. 5/30 Big changes,

    First time down during the week for me. Tuesday and wednesday. Gonna do that more often....lots of room to breath. Think some are still scared off, but really kudos to the park staff...they are working really hard.
