  1. We are sitting here tonight watching synchronized swimming. As goofy as these girls look, this has to be one of the hardest things in the world to do in sports. Holding their breath underwater for over half of a 3 minute routine with their legs up in the air kicking and spinning around, it’s kind of mesmerizing to watch.
  2. Not sure if there's a place to put a jon boat in up there but it has to have less than a 10hp motor this time of year. Horespower Limits on the Rivers - Ozark National Scenic Riverways (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov)

    Whatchya Drinking?

    For $20 it's a really good bonded Jim Beam product.

    Whatchya Drinking?

    I’ve been on a bourbon kick lately.
  5. Even then, a shark if they were so inclined and could live long enough could make it all the way up to the Minnesota headwaters of the Mississippi as all 29 dams have locks they could get in to navigate up past the dams.
  6. I'm not sure about a full sized boat like that, but a kayak or canoe that was 3D printed. That sounds good, although I plastic molding they use for them now is a pretty fast and tried and true process... 3D printing is cool, and I really want one to mess around with although I don't have a clue how to work CAD software or anything else you'd need to make anything worth while. I've watched several videos of people making fishing lures with them and it's a cool process.
  7. I’m hitting the Mississippi tomorrow for some bull shark action! I bet they love feeding on this big Blue Catfish that are in there! https://gizmodo.com/two-bull-sharks-swam-up-the-mississippi-river-all-the-w-1847300882/amp
  8. I did get this email from them about a week before they sent me the survey link. I guess they didn't get enough input through the website they linked below so they thought a survey would be a better idea. MDC invites public comments on potential catfish regulation changes on the Mississippi, Missouri, and St. Francis rivers Regulation considerations designed to meet the desires of big rivers catfish anglers and harvesters. JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is seeking public input on potential regulation changes for both recreational and commercial catfish harvest in some big rivers of the state. People can learn about and comment on the potential regulation changes by going to https://mdc.mo.gov/contact-engage/public-commenting-opportunities/big-rivers-catfish-assessment.The comment period will end August 15, 2021. Blue catfish and flathead catfish support important sport fisheries on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, as well as a commercial fishery on the Mississippi River and a small portion of the St. Francis River. Our studies confirmed that current management approaches continue to support healthy and sustainable blue catfish and flathead catfish populations in the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, and regulation changes do not appear to be necessary to maintain these populations or prevent overfishing. However, MDC is considering changes to management strategies and harvest regulations to better meet the desires of big rivers catfish anglers and harvesters. “These potential regulation changes can help MDC manage catfish fisheries on Missouri’s big rivers, but we need to understand Missourian’s opinions about catfish angling and harvest before moving forward,” said Joe McMullen, an MDC scientist who’s involved with catfish management in the state. “After we collect public comments, we can tailor our management strategies to meet the desires of fishers and implement harvest regulations that can improve both sport and commercial fisheries accordingly. Depending on public sentiment we may also decide to retain our current management strategies and harvest regulations.” Potential sport fishery regulations include: Establish a minimum length limit of 18, 21, or 24 inches for blue catfish and flathead catfish on the Mississippi and/or Missouri rivers (currently there is no minimum length limit). Maintain the current daily limit of 5 blue catfish per day on the Missouri River but establish that only 1 blue catfish over 30-inches in length may be kept as a part of that limit. Potential commercial fishery regulations include: Establish a minimum length limit of 18, 21, or 24 inches for blue catfish and flathead catfish on the Mississippi and St. Francis rivers (currently the minimum length limit is 15-inches). People can learn more about the regulations being considered and view associated research reports and summaries at: https://research.mdc.mo.gov/project/big-rivers-catfish-assessment.

  9. My survey asked me about catfishing. 🤷‍♂️
  10. If it is flex sealed that thing will never sink. They put a screen door in the bottom of a jon boat coated in the stuff and it still floated!
  11. I'd have to agree with you on the "braid" scissors that came with my Rapala tool kit (pliers, diagonal cutters, scissors). They don't cut braid. I've found a good pair of athletic tape scissors work well. I really need to upgrade mine to something else. Doing a quick Google search it seems a lot of people like the Gerber Neat Freak scissors.
  12. I think braid is cheap relatively speaking because it lasts so long so I'd just spool it up. I'm using the same braid on a couple of my reels that I've had on for 5 years where I usually respool everything after a year of use using nylon lines. The only time I ever really respool braid is when I get a bad backlash (on casting reels) and have to cut it out of the reel. Don't worry about coils because braid doesn't have a memory like mono does.
  13. I think the farthest one I could find was from Nemisis Mountain in Montana. Ended up being 6031km to the Gulf of Mexico
  14. 1863km from my house to the Gulf of Mexico. Cool site.
  15. Not sure why it took so long to certify but here it is. https://www.fieldandstream.com/fishing/brown-trout-certified-igfa/
