Another new guy.

Recommended Posts

Howdy everyone. I am expecting! Got a Bonafide 127 on order. Went to pick it up a couple days ago but boat was damaged so sent it back. Supplier said they would ship me a replacement as soon as they receive the one I refused delivery on. My due date  should be in a couple weeks. Was so disappointed that I had to send boat back. Had planned to be on the water today (a beautiful day by the way) but here I sit. Im new to kayak fishing but am a competent class III whitewater canoeist (lived and boated for many years in Colorado, Utah, Montana and the Missouri Ozarks) and have a couple years of river jet boating under my belt. So Im fairly confident in my paddling/river skills but have a lot to lean when it comes to catching fish. Haven't had much luck yet but am willing to pay my dues. Hope to hook up (pun intended) with some other Ozark yakers. I live near Rolla MO. Im about 2 miles from the Gasconade (as the crow flies), 20 or so from the Big Piney and Meramec and 60-70 miles from the Current/Jacks Fork. Im recently retired so do most of my fishing during the week to avoid the crowds. Have been spending most of my time on the Gasconade and local lakes (Little Prairie, Council Bluffs). The plan is to start hitting some of the smaller streams like the upper Gasconade and Big Piney. If any of this interest you give me a shout and maybe we can hook up for some Ozark smallmouth fishin. 

Sometimes you get and sometimes you get got.

We used to have just a few now we’re overrun with em and their fishing reports while I have to work.

Welcome to the group. 

Maybe they should get their own forum!😁

We just have to convince them that fishing isn't cool anymore.

Dont have to worry about me catching them all. Not with my skills/luck., but that's OK. I enjoy fishing and playing on the river. If Im lucky enough to catch something its just an added bonus.

Or they could be sending you texts of their Western trout fishing trips while your in the work meat grinder😌. Gives us something to look forward to when we are done working.

I don’t care if you catch any it’s because you are there and I’m in the cubicle.  You’re living my dream. 👍
