  1. And he was a Jesuit....Converted many to Christ at gun point no doubt.
  2. Have you seen the people that frequent Ozark Outdoors?
  3. Taking his toys and going home😀!
  4. Did not see this earlier. They will dump some trout in the lake at Tilles in early November. Jefferson Lake in Forest Park gets a couple thousand more.
  5. It is capitalism at its finest! The tables have turned. Crappy employers will have to up their game, or go out of business.
  6. A Bell Morningstar is a fine boat. It is yours to do what you want with, but it's always going to be around 6" too wide to be a good solo canoe. I'd send it down the road before I hacked it up like that. Might take you awhile to find a used solo canoe, and you may have to travel to get it, but you will find one. Good luck.
  7. See T Man's boat. He appears to be properly prepared for an evening or two of life on a gravel bar. I'm sure that he has a full sized lawn chair, jumbo sized sleeping pad, roomy tent, packed full sized cooler, real cook ware, and accessories. If I'm set up like that, I will have three rods rigged (Caster, spin, fly/spin, fly, fly/ or caster, caster, spin) depending on location. On a day trip. I'll rig 4-5 rods.. Al runs with around 5-6 rods. More bait casters, than spinning rigs. It' a PIA to run more than two rods out of either of our SOT kayaks. The seating positions really limit your reach to what is right in front of you. Your butt is stuck in that one spot.
  8. I like my 15' Mad River Solo Canoe allot better than either of the two 12' sit on top kayaks that we own. It's faster, lighter, tracks better, you sit higher, and it has less tendency to roll in serious chop. There are no disadvantages on the water. That Esquif Echo (15' solo) looks like a really sweet boat, I'd go for that over that 12' solo.
  9. I put a Thule Aeroblade on the cab of my truck, and the back of the canoes get supported by the back bar of my ladder rack (Trac Rac). I can have 2 canoes on top...bikes/coolers in the pickup bed, and tow a travel trailer at the same time. 12' kayaks fit well on the ladder rack. I only put the blade on for when I haul canoes because it creates some annoying wind noise.
  10. Calling me and my town Wankers is funny? My instinct is to wash your mouth out with soap like an 8 year old, but I'm gonna restrain myself and think about what Jordan Peterson would do. What's O'Fallon got going for it anyway? Cookie cutter homes, a Walmart, and some cave graffiti? It's a "No Pride McBride" kinda town.
  11. Sold a used car today. Listed it at 10am and it sold above asking price before noon. Had 3 way bidding in my drive. Probably left some cash on the table. Shoulda said the auction starts a 4, come back with cash then.
  12. I’ve never caught much on an ant pattern. They seem to be worthless as a searching pattern, but they sometimes take a rising fish that refused a bigger fly. Have some in the hopper box, but they rarely get fished.
  13. Gavin


    Neither will beat Alabama, so what's the point?
  14. The PD payroll is the biggest line item in many N St Louis County municipality budgets and I’m sure it’s the same for many rural towns. Those small cities don’t pay very well and there gonna lose allot of people in this job market. Heard that Shannon County no longer has 24/7 emergency services because the can’t afford it anymore, and that the jail is closing.
  15. Haven't found a soft hackle fly that wont catch trout, so that one should work too. Nice tie.
  16. Looks like a regional hybrid design drift skiff/power boat. Who made the hull? Where was it made? Michigan maybe? Might be worth towing it back to where it came from if you want top dollar.
  17. Or the guy playing hacky sack in the college quad.
  18. That's a negatory FW! We cant have easy access to Mescaline, Psilocybin, or DMT (even though primitive cultures used them safely for years). What would we do with all the unemployed psychiatrists & preachers? Anti depressant sales would plummet!
  19. Nice! Gar & catfish are fun on light tackle.
  20. Where are you located? Your local fly fishing club or shop would probably do a class for nothing.
  21. Buddy mowed his sunflowers in Troy last week. He says he has no birds. Nothing but cut weeds at MTC and Busch...no birds there either. Looks like tweety birds will be the only thing on the grill on Wednesday. I'm gonna sleep in, unless birds arrive. Haven't heard squat about CB...Lots of flowers up there this year. If they aren't holding birds, I don't know what will.
  22. There’s 60 acres of cut Sunflowers by the Weldon Boat ramp. No doves.
  23. Haven’t seen many, doves are sparse too.
