  1. It was my first time fishing the little piney and let me tell you it did not disappoint. Started out right above where Lane spring flows into the main creek at about 7am. Saw several fish spread out rising to what appeared to be very small blue wing olives. I tied on a size 22 BWO and tried for those fish for about an hour and gave up fishless and proceeded downstream (these also may have been creek chubs rising on the hatch so may have been wasting my time). Fished another stretch with confirmed trout with BWO still on, but still had no luck. It was now 11am without a fish, so I continued on

    NWA crappie

    Went out on Tuesday after returning from Branson trout fishing. I sure do like to catch those trout but crappie eats better, imo. caught about 40 kept 12 for the table.

    Fall walleye

    Fished yesterday, mostly in Son's Creek arm. Just casting at the shore for bass nto targeting walleye. Red small shad rap, PBJ ned , and shakeyhead. 3 of us. Caught Several keeper bass, loads of small bass,and 3 walleye between 16-17". Also 3 hard fighting drum. All in 3' or less. Wind was a big help. Webb Outdoors was having a tourney with 40 boats. The ones I saw were all hugging the bank throwing fast moving baits.

  7. I need a common carp for temporary use. $40 reward for the first person in Joplin area to bring me a LIVE common carp over 10 pounds. It must be live and cannot have any holes in it from bowfishing. I am not buying the fish. I am paying to use it and it will be released when I’m finished. As a bonus, the reward will increase to $50 if the fish is over 20 pounds.

    What's Cooking?

    Well if I gotta be trapped at home I might as well eat good. Tonight some chicken thighs getting a hot cisco bath, a pot of mashed taters livened up with cream cheese and garlic, and an acorn squash in the microwave. Now if I don't mess up the gravy!

  10. Several members of Mary's family have basically what amounts to congenital defects in their shoulders...three of her brothers and her dad have had shoulder replacements, and now Mary has had one as well...last Thursday. Things went well, apparently, and she has gradually cut out the opiods(she's deathly afraid of getting addicted). She's trying to do the exercises, has a passive motion machine at the house, but so far has been unable to move her shoulder more than a few degrees. Has anybody here had a replacement and used one of those things? Or just used the pulley system to exercise the

    Fall walleye

    I had a lot of luck in October/November of 17 doing pretty much the same things I did in the summer. But this year, and last year, I haven't had much luck. I know a lot of guys catch them shallow on jerkbaits around this time. Something I hope to get better at. I usually have the best luck during summer, when the thermocline keeps them confined to the top half of the lake.

    Fall walleye

    We had some luck last weekend trolling flicker shads along rocky banks in 10 ft of water. Just an idea for you. Heading up tomorrow to try again. Good luck to you

    Try the silicone tail thing like this one has Ones made like this swim like crazy, but honestly (and oddly enough) it is not one of my better fish catchers. Sure is fun to show off though. 😊

  16. 4 units running this morning and just blowing down the pipe. We were drifting crawlers from Fall Creek down and the drift speed was 2.7 mph thru Trout Hollow. Bite was unreal with quality bows coming to the boat in lots of doubles. Guides Rick Lisek and Steve Dicky were catching them aplenty on the pink worm. 10' of tippet below the strike indicator with one BB 100 oz. jig head on the worm.

  20. I had a pretty good jig bite Sunday. Bluffy stuff on the channel. Ive been throwing a 3/4 ounce. Brown seemed to be the best for us

    I believe I'd skip the dumbell eyes and use a 3ips sinking leader. You're not gonna get the side-to-side dance with that weight on the nose. Might as well be a fur strip Clouser.

  22. General feedback regarding the Kim City area: I just fish a few hours in the morning. The early bite (7am) is pretty reliable, but it gets tougher with each hour. The 15-20 foot jig bite stopped for me back on Oct 1st. Then the square bill and spinner bait in the backs held up for several days, then it slowed way down. Some mornings the rock crawler works on some decent fish right at daylight on the main lake. This morning I was fortunate to get the jig to work on a few nice fish (a 4# LM and a nice SM). I normally start with a jig to see if it is going to work, then throw a CB and spinnerbai

  23. I am an early morning guy myself and I do believe there is a bite to be had early right now. Later in the day if the wind picks up I think that can produce a bite too. These bluebird type days where there is no wind at all, I think you're better off getting out early.

  24. I don’t kill spiders either unless they are brown recluse. They are nature’s best bug killers. My wife gets mad when I find one in the house and let it go outside. Snakes don’t bother me much either. I’m usually trying to pick them up and move them. Copperheads are a different deal though. Glad you didn’t get bit today.

  26. I had to make some since they killed all the fish at Horseshoe Lake at Carondelet Park. So many big dead sunfish due to the duckweed infestation and I'm still mad. I've had some success crappie fishing at a lake I've been fishing since the 80's. Float n fly jigs and pill spins have been working for me.No 15's yet but have caught decent numbers in the 11-14 inch class with some bonus bass. I don't keep crappie this time of year so everything has been released . Some of the baits I've been using. Lot's of fun using 2-3lb test line except when you snag up.

  27. I know what you mean, but Mary has had really bad arthritis in that shoulder for 10 years. It all started when she began to have a lot of pain when doing various activities. Went to a specialist who examined her carefully, and thought he knew what it was, a problem with a tendon that could be fixed by clipping that tendon. Arthroscopic surgery, no big deal. But when he got the scope in there, the cartilage in her shoulder joint turned out to be shredded, with little bits and pieces of it floating around all over the place. He told her then she'd have to have replacement surgery, and soone
