    willyfish got a reaction from snagged in outlet 3 in Anybody Fishing   
    Me and a buddy were just talking the other day about going up there last week in May or first of June. I don't know of anyone that goes anymore either. It seems like a catfish lake from what I hear. The crappie were good at one time but its like it got fished out and never bounced back. Every once in a while you will hear about some bass being caught but its rare. It has turned into a mudhole from what I understand. If we go I'll report what I see or hopefully catch.

    I lived in the Boston area in the glory days of the Big East.  John Thompson, Rollie Massimino, Louie Carneseca, PJ Carlisimo, Jim Boeheim,  Gary Williams, the UCONN guy whose name I can't remember - anyway, that league was crawling with great coaches and players.

    I've heard stories about Tommy Biffle and Martin being real A holes on the water, but that's with money on the line so I get it in a sense. For me its the off the water stuff that makes you wanna walk the other way. 
    I really miss the old Big 8 basketball with Roy Williams, Billy Tubbs, and Norm. That was a lot of fun!

    Shortly after it had opened back in the mid 90's I bought a boat from Jimmy Houston Marine down in Tahlequah, Ok.  His son in law was managing the operation at the time and although Dower was a really nice guy he didn't have a clue what he was doing.  Well, that actually worked out in my favor as I'm pretty sure I got that boat for around cost.  When I picked it up he even asked me "How did I do on the price?" I think it might have literally been the first boat he ever sold.  Well, since I had priced the same boat with five other dealers and he was at least three grand cheaper than the next best I'd say he did pretty good.
    In fact I showed the paperwork to Steve Monte at Steve's Boat's and Bob Parkey the Ranger rep and they both said that there was no way in heck that he could seriously be selling me that boat for that price and that there had to be a mistake.
    Anyways, while the boat was being built we went down to the Tulsa boat show where Dower took me to meet Jimmy.  What. A. Jerk.  He started lecturing me on not under powering boats and how "guys like you are always under powering boats to save a few bucks" (although the boat had already been ordered with the max rated outboard).  He even said, "Don't be bringing that boat back down here and come crying to me when it doesn't perform because you put too small a motor on the back."
    He had the KU-OU basketball game on a little TV in his booth and me being a KU guy I wanted to watch a little bit.  He spent the next twenty minutes brow beating me with all the reasons that KU was over rated and how HE could do a better job coaching Kansas than some guy named Roy Williams.  
    Finally I couldn't take it anymore and left to walk around the rest of the show but OU ended up coming back and winning.  Well, Jimmy tracked me down on the other side of the arena to brag about how he had told me that KU was over rated and that HE woulda won that game if he had been coaching KU.  Finger in my chest and the whole bit.
    Never saw him again but I couldn't help but smile extra big a few weeks later when I drove that Ranger off the lot knowing I mighta got at least a little piece of Jimmy Houston Marine that day.
    Was sorry to recently hear about his wife's illness however as she seemed really nice.

    I remember back in the day I would hear stories about certain shows using scuba divers. They would attach fish to the lure under the water and it was fish on for the "star of the show". It was the only way they could make a show to sell product.

    I'm aware of the matchups, I was just doing a little foreshadowing for the final. It boggles my mind how UCLA made it this far. I will most likely be on the dog Monday

    I'm going to guess Zags will be 5.5 over Baylor and 9 over Houston in the final. A lot of that will be how these teams look on Saturday of course.

    I agree on Timme. His little act on throwing his arms up after a basket is silly. I guess he can enjoy it while it lasts because he will get eaten alive in the NBA, if he is lucky enough to make a team. I was surprised how bad Michigan played against UCLA. They had favorable matchups all over the court and Wagner was off big time. Houston has a shot at Baylor. They play D and hit the boards. It was a pretty forgettable weekend of hoops for me.

    Fishing pressure on Rayburn is insane and worse than what Missouri sees I'm sure. I just snuck a peek at regatta permits for April on The Rock and this pond is going to take a beating. Is it safe to say Table Rock has passed LOZ in overall pressure for Bass?

    That's a great tip because I was curious how you were getting through all the trash with that lure. Nice fish and noticed you didn't need a computer and a 60k bass boat to get bit. Thanks for sharing
