    With a little break in the storms I dropped the boat in with my daughter Macey and ran a short distance and literally caught this big one on my first cast   Followed by several dandies, then the sky opened up and we high tailed it home

    Here’s a couple or 3 nice walleye I’ve caught lately on my home waters    There’s been a consistent big smallie bite for weeks but I can’t help but go after these toothy creatures.  I lost a really big one a week ago that I’m speculating in the 29” range.

    It’s all about the flow!   When I fish for walleye, I usually fish where most people would pass by and not give it a second glance. These fish set up on very predictable locations when they feed.  This morning I look at the river and it dropped to almost perfect walleye conditions

    There's a lot of high-quality info in that one little sentence.
    I was lucky enough to have HW share some tips with me a few years back, and I managed to luck into a sauger before moving away.
    Wish I would've had a chance to fish the Valley Park area when I was back this year. But it was blown out, and there were crappie to chase. I might try applying his techniques to the Yellowstone this year.

    The water temps dropped to 50 degrees and the rain gave it a little more color   The HD Craw produced a legit 20” today and that gave me a 😊. Multiple others in and around 18”.

    Watched a female and a male on a bed last Friday   They were getting it done.   Seen a group of females roaming shallow.  Seen fry Monday.   Middle meramec.   Didn’t get much reaction from them.  Hopefully this rise don’t put fry in the cornfields 🙁

    There's nothing like a new friend.  It's like a challenge to see how soon I can make him call me a Cocksucker.  🤣

    Wrench and myself finally got together for a day of, well fun...... Tho wrench gave his idea of a recap to our day, I’m going to give mine, as it is slightly different than his....  
    So, for a solid week leading up to this benefit tournament, wrench sent me pictures of frog infested fishing backwaters, whites the size of musky, stories of buddies of his coming up to fish, catching nothing smaller than a 7lb fish. The more we chatted, the more my excitement grew. He talked about us fishing his favorite honey holes, as the launch was in his backyard. Now, for a guy to take you to fish HIS holes, is a big deal. Just Incase I fell overboard, or got lost launching the boat, I asked for gps coordinates as a backup, so I could meet him at the next secret hole. Well, those never came. Yeah, I know, can’t give out all of your secrets. 
    The evening before launch, I get a message, which I shared with him right away, saying the launch site has changed to the other end of the lake. Man did my anxiety take its toll, because for a week, seeing these pictures, hearing the stories, and finally fishing his secrets holes, I knew getting that message would change everything. So I sent wrench a copied text with the new launch details, and about 10 minutes later, I get this response: “You’re on your own”. 
    Now mind you, this is like 8:30pm, the evening before our first outing together. 
    As I load my gear into the truck, my mind drifts off to those stories I heard all week about 7 pounders every other cast, possibly hooking a white that swam back out of the river, that would engorge any musky left over on LOZ, and the idea of seeing firsthand his honey holes, I got settled into bed around 1:30am. At 4 I fire the truck off for my 1 hour 50 minute drive to this new area of the lake. We met at a local supermarket that was boiling smoke from some ribs they were preparing.  Our agreed meeting time was 6:30am. 
    Im one of those that am atleast 45 minutes early most places, especially fishing related. I get there at 5:40, roll the window down, letting those smoke searing ribs sink into my lungs. I have my gear laid out across the bed, standing outside waiting for wrench. At 6:31 he pulls up, smiling face and all, as I comment “where were you, at the donut shop” to his reply, another friendly smile. We load up, get to the launch, chat with a couple dudes, and launch. 
    7:30 takeoff time, and looks at me and says “well, I have never been on this side of the lake, so I hope you got the goods”. Now, I remember a week ago telling him “I have been on this pond once in my life, and it was by the dam, for crappie” so when he says he is relying on me, I just sunk into the boat seat. 
    We get to the first cut, and both catch a few behind docks. Keep moving and more of the same. As the day goes on, and the washing machine wave makers start coming out, this was about 10am on a cool, cloudy sky, I knew it was going to be rough. And rough it was. 
    In closing, we caught a bunch of short fish, watched guys weigh in limits, got a free t-shirt, and finally got to hang out. 
    Wrench is one of those guys you just feel comfortable around, not the “Im wearing my speedo in the boat with you” comfortable, but one you can joke with, tease, and enjoy the day with, thinking “I could do this again”. We had 9 fun filled hours of doing/saying guy stuff. I have no doubts we will be doing this again soon, but with a few modifications:  Everytime he texts me pictures or stories leading up to the outing, I’m blocking his number!!!!
    “disclosure”. SOME of what you just read was true. You choose what isn’t. 
    Wrench, you’re a good dude. Thanks.

    Need to download MLF app. You can also keep up with live scoring on score tracker or watch it live. I’ll have it on all day. Love it. Especially when it’s a familiar body of water.
