    Last I checked, Cuomo isn't the POTUS.  Every state is dealing with its own variety of problems and challenges from this and Cuomo certainly has made some mistakes, no doubt about it.
    However, if you really have been following it . . . Bunkerboy's only TRUE concern hasn't been the health and welfare of this country's citizens . . . . . his only concern has been getting re-elected.  Daily press briefings of lying.  We all knew it granted,  but the Woodward tapes are proof that he has been knowingly and intentionally lying to all of us since at least Feb 7th.   And now he isn't denying he said those things,  and with a straight face he says he was worried that you might've panicked, Ham.  How thoughtful.  He was protecting you from yourself.  🤣
    As for Wrench, no panic there, because Marlboro Reds have made him all but immune.🤣

    We stayed at Bucksaw and fished nearby in the spring.  We hammered the crappie although I am sure the bite has changed.  There is a LOT of timber in that area.  If you have a good GPS and lake map on it, you should not have a problem.  If you don't, buy a paper map and go slow.  Bucksaw has nice enough rooms and a diner on the dock.  Bait, ice and slips as well.  You would not have to leave the resort but you will need a car to drive from the lodge or cabins to the ramp.

    Water was up slightly and pretty dingy. Caught 7 in a few hours on a black/yellow 1/16oz marabou jig just above the next dump below the bathroom hole. Missed a lot of bites since I had to detect bite by feel alone. Bait definitely works better in the dingy water but didnt have any treble hooks handy to try it.

    There are several places to stay around the Warsaw area.  Sterret Creek and Osage Bluff have motels.  Not sure of their pricing but you can check online.   There is also a motel in Warsaw that is somewhat reasonable.  It is called Lakes Inn (previously Truman Lodge).  It is next door to Sonic close to Hwy 7 and 65.  Just a little south of Warsaw at the Hwy 83 exit (White Branch area) there are a few reasonable motels.   Headwaters is the cheapest around $50 a night.  It is older but relatively clean.   There is Rivers End at $56 per night but I think they charge $5 person above that price.  Hidden Lake is about 8 miles west of Warsaw on Hwy 7 around $55 per night.

    Not to hijack the thread but met up with a fishing buddy and we kayaked around George Winter last Friday. I got skunked but he hooked into a real nice Longnose gar with a chatterbait I believe. Probably a 4 footer. I tried to unhook it without getting cut by it as it thrashed around, but just as I got some actual leverage with the pliers, it thrashed around one more time and I guess the pliers gave him enough leverage to break off the line and take off, unfortunately with the chatterbait still attached. Hate to have them swim off like that but it was a hard fish to calm down enough to not get cut up bad, even though by that time it had to have been pretty tired.

    Got down about 9am and landed four decent sized fish in the first 30 minutes on the orange wacky power worm and a white trout magnet. Those fish were cleaned and put on ice in a cooler and then I went and walked around the hatchery for a bit with the fiance. After that was done, I went down to the bathroom hole. White trout magnet was getting lots of interested again. I caught 4 or 5 more and then let the fiance catch one (free fishing weekend so no tag required) and then we headed out. I thought the fish bite was decent, but saw very few trout caught by others. You had to keep the bait near the bottom or you didn't get bit. Water had just enough stain that it was hard to see the fish tight to the bottom, but they were there just ahead of the dumps.

    People asked me if I was being forced to wear a mask due to Covid-19. Nope, I'm just a white boy who burns easily and sheds like a snake!

    Hey everyone.
    I realize it's been several years (at least) since I've been a regular here, but to those  few of who have any idea who I am (and everyone else, of course), I hope you are all doing well and are healthy. It's been far too long since I've been able to wet a line in the Missouri Ozarks; I had a four day camping/floating trip on the 11 Point scheduled this month since literally last year. My folks and I were going to do the whole trout section and some smallie fishing dang near to the Arkansas border and were very excited about it...but my folks are a bit on the older side and have a few health conditions, so we decided to cancel it out of an abundance of caution, which broke my heart to a degree that is difficult to describe, but was probably a good call. In any case, here are a few pictures from my recent outings in and around Indiana, which, I'll stress, is not nearly as nice as the Ozarks.
    I miss you all, and I miss the Ozarks. 
    Catch a whole bunch of fish, and be safe and healthy when I can finally come back to Missouri, ya'll.

    Personally feel like it’d be better to let the population grow another 5 or so years.  Current estimate is what, 500 or so. That’s still really small number for a state the size of Missouri. Let them make a little more of a comeback before opening a season for them.

    Haris122 reacted to JUNGLE JIM 1 in Post spawn crappie & Reptile pics   
    Crappie have finished spawning finally. Girls don't have their bellies anymore. Did catch one big colored up male yesterday but wanted to get him back on it's bed quickly so no photo. Biggest crappie was a 14.5 inch female and an 18" Largemouth was the highlight for the day. As I was leaving I spotted this Black snake stretched out across the trail. I thought it was dead so I poked it with my rod and it moved a little. Got a few pics since it was in no hurry to leave. It coiled up in a strike pose and let me take it's picture. As I was leaving I spotted a small box turtle sunning itself on the road so snapped a picture before moving it to a safer place.

    Haris122 reacted to JUNGLE JIM 1 in Late Crappie spawn   
    This is the latest in my memory that crappie have spawned here in our area. Males are finally getting dark but the girls are still full of eggs. Lake was flooded but has been dropping and for the last few trips I have been able to reach some pre-spawn fish in the brushpiles by wading with 9 and 10 foot rods. Blade baits and duck feather jigs are both working for me, the crappie have been really thumping the baits leaving no doubt when they hit. I don't know where the bigger 14 - 15 + inch females went, haven't gotten one of those in over a week but 11-13 inchers are fun too.

    Haris122 reacted to JUNGLE JIM 1 in County park crappie   
    With the re-opening of many of the county parks including my favorite crappie lake I went out yesterday morning to give it a try despite the rainy, windy conditions. Lake is way up but still managed to find a few fish.  First one was the biggest. Thought I had my first 15 incher but she was only 14.75 inches so I'm going back today and try again. I release all crappie over 13 inches hoping to catch a giant here one day. They aren't spawning yet so might find some even bigger in the next week or two.

    We finally got some warmer temps so I decided to give the crappie itch a scratch. Despite the windy conditions the last two days I managed to find some slabs that were fat and hungry for my float  n fly's. Most were in the 12-14 inch range but caught some smaller crappie and gills as well.

    Because I have been out in the Sun Fishing All Weekend!  Sunburn and sore muscles.  For the first time since the first weekend in Feb, I had a weekend chance to get to TN and do some fishing.
    Started south at 4 am Sat. morn and saw my last face mask at the rest area in SE MO.  Met my Doctor Buddy at Gibson County Lake to try some crappie fishing.  Something different for a change.  As usual, I am not  a crappie fisherman and started catching bass on my lure.  He ended up with several bass too, a nice big redear, several bluegill, and one dink crappie.  The lake was packed, TN opened the flood gate early and the lake was full of boats.  Had to wait to pull out at noon while a Professional Fisher in a nice big $40k rig put his stuff in his boat, then let his wife put her stuff in the boat, all while sitting smack dab in the middle of the 2 lane ramp at the crack of noon as the 20 mph wind was driving everyone else off.  Everyone gave him the nice big one finger salute for a job well done.
    Off to Pickwick, decided to fish the river below the dam, it was down to 77k cfps and just barely fishable.  First notch I hit, second cast, nice 5 lb cat came to boat.  It will make a nice meal this week.  We ended up boating about 50 fish before dark, mostly smallies and a few kentuckys, nothing over 3 lbs.  Did catch a few white bass to go with the cat and a big skip jack.
    Fished the lake today, wind was already up this morning at launch, rough ride to the first spot.  Boated a few fish today, but it was tough.  Ended up finessing about 20 bass, but nothing better than a 3 lb smallie.  Light jigs or ned rigged worms on light tackle fished very slow caught them all.  Spawn is over and post spawn feed up has not seemed to pick up yet down there.  Water temps were pretty cool at 64 and lake was slightly above summer pool.  Lots of pleasure boat traffic.  The subdivision looked like a holiday weekend.  Temp was  86 when we pulled out and I went thru 2 big storms and hail coming back.  Jackson Tn had power outages with 70 mph wind.
    Tennessee opened back up this weekend.  State Parks were allowing campers again, boat ramps in them opened too.  We sit down last nite and had BBQ in a restaurant with many other people and traffic in Jackson was about like normal.  Like I say, I did not see a mask after I left MO.  But the Cstores and one BBQ restaurant was only place stopped.  Concessionaire at county lake only allowed 2 people in shop at a time and all chain restaurants were still drive thru only.

    I work this weekend, otherwise I would’ve been down there today, but I think I’ll go either tomorrow or Tuesday. That said, is anyone down there today, and if so, how is the fishing and the crowd.

    Water clarity wasn’t the greatest. Fish seemed to he very congregated in certain spots. I helped my fiance catch her five at the buzzer and then fishing slowed. We basically waited around till 9:30 to get in a spot where fish were biting and then caught a 10-12 in short order down below the bathroom hole on a black/yellow jig and orange trout worm.
    I’m not sure how many tags were sold but park was the busiest tyat I can remember seeing today.

    I think there’s still a few parts of it that are still kind of nice looking. Some of the area around Unger I think still looks nice for example. Not like some of the big floating stretches but still better than some of the rest.
