  1. Al I agree. I like special regs and I'm all for them if data supports them. Unfortunayely I doubt the MDC actually has any finite data that proves whether or not the work. As far as enforcement goes I feel that as an officer you should be able to learn/remember the regs regardless. They can't be that complicated. I personally disagree with river tournaments and don't think they should really be promoted. Rivers fish too small for there to be tournaments on in my opinion. As far as keeping people off small streams if the trend continues with "YouTubers" plastering creeks all over the web, I think that land owners are about start letting air out of tires or worse. I did NOT make this post to argue or stir the pot. I just thought maybe we could voice our opinion to MDC. Since I seem to already have stirred it, the left is coming for all your guns, the right is killing everyone with covid, and who wants to talk religion? Lol (all totally a sarcastic joke)
  2. Unfortunately, I agree with you Brian. I guess my only reason for posting is that they literally cannot do less. However, I would rather have them do nothing than ignorant programs like when they tagged fish
  3. If you select 'extremely dissatisfied' on the question which asks, "How satisfied are you with MDC overall?" A text box will drop down for you to fill out. Probably should've included that in the original post.
  4. Hey guy, the most recent MDC survey is most likely in your email inbox by now. I did mine this morning. As smallmouth fisherman I think we need to voice our opinion on the issues surrounding smallmouth in Missouri. As most of us have noticed, there has been a lot more fishing pressure since the spring of 2020. Especially on smaller bodies of water which are primarily smallmouth fisheries. Take the survey and let MDC know about the issues were facing... giggers, spotted bass, unreasonably high kreel limits, etc. It may not make any difference, but it's an easy way to try. If nothing else, it can be a gripe session which we all love lol I'd love to be able to catch fish like this till I'm a grumpy old timer, but if something dosen't change, I fear they'll all be gone!
  5. All in all had a great trip! Caught 2 on the places that you marked but didn't seem to be happening. Fished bluff ends with a jerkbait and swimbait and caught some really nice walleyes, smallmouth, and largemouth!
  6. Thanks Steve I'll definitely check that out!!!
  7. Thank you! You're ever on tabke rock, LOZ, or Truman and need some help let me know!
  8. With all my favorite streams blown out and Table Rock fishing tough my Thanksgiving fishing trip plan A and B are out the window. My nephew's 12th birthday is right around this time so I thought I'd take him on his first fishing trip. I know there's tournaments this weekend so if anyone doesn't want to give any info I totally understand, but have they been biting on Stockton? Some guys say jts alot like Table Rock and I've never fished it so I'm just curious. Not looking for spots just general patterns. Like I said I've never fished Stockton before and would just like my nephew to get on a bunch of fish. Maybe catch his first smallie and walleye too but we will just be bass fishing. Thinking a swimbait, ned rig, and jerkbait but not really sure. Any help is much appreciated.
  9. You know you hit the nail on the head there bill. I would love to get rolling into things in the fishing industry. Not even sure really where to start to be honest. I appreciate all the kind words from everyone though! Means alot coming from a hammer like Bill!
  10. If you fished a different arm of the lake you definitely could've been. We fished the Kimberling city and dam area.
  11. Haha hopefully I'll buy a boat too. The job definitely has it upsides when it comes to fishing!
  12. Yeah you're probably right about that 🤣
