Bantam Sunfish

Bantam Sunfish (58/89)



  1. Possible Ozark Hellbender young ? or just salamanders...
  2. Shawnee river boat with trailer - very lighty used.... the older the better. Will pay money, but trades are an option. Let's talk. Thanks for looking, or helping, or anything - Brian
  3. Nice ... this post is still here ~ this ant still works!
  4. I still have a few of these left over. These are a great hook...
  5. I just arrived to see the water off at Taneycomo.... which I am sure is because of the upcoming work to be done 6/1. You can imagine my shock to see the water down ... 1st time in years it seems. It’s gonna look crazy in the daylight .... cheers all - Brian 4:45am Edit - I just spoke to the Operator of TR Dam at the moment and he told me that No... the water being off has nothing to do with the work to be done. They have always been very cooperative with me... So honestly, the water could come on at 6am now today for all I know. Taneycomo is a tough one to figure out I tell ya... It seems odd to go from running full blast with 5 flood gates open up above to nothing - Zero. The guy in the TR powerhouse hates to be bothered... I could tell from his tone... so again - no tellin’ what the heck is going on.
  6. Wow... that is fast! The growth rate of those fish is impressive! Brian Shaffer
  7. No night fishing is a bad night... unless the wookalar gets ya - then its a bad night! p.s. why did you blur out Linda face ?
  8. It's a rainbrown. ... ... ... No.. a brownbow. Nah... that's just beautiful man. Perhaps I will have to watch these here videos of this Hank Patterson fella. Hope it is worth it... hope it's not too corny.

  11. Hey just FYI - not so is the adipose fin clipped on all triploid fish. I just called into the Hatchery itself and asked how to determine triploids. I was told that fin clippings mostly are done to know when a fish was stocked by year. It could be adipose or pectoral or ... how many other fins are there ? I am not sure I have ever caught a triploid trout in Taneycomo myself...
  12. Nice fish... all the way from New York too... Cool. I dig your chosen screen name on here by the way... it happens to be my email address. Welcome and Cheers to ya' - Brian
