  1. Watched the latest episode of Ike's World or whatever the name is, anyway Ike went fishing in a reservoir in NJ by the name of Merrils Creek and they caught a lake trout. Looks to be easily within JF's driving range. Dunno if you've got a lake trout yet on your species quest. @Johnsfolly
  2. Man that is some good fishing! I went today and made myself stay shallow and I stunk it up, 3 little 12" spotted bass. Did catch a big gar on top, had him snagged in the side of the head, he pulled drag and did some tail walking, couple of times that fish was completely out of the water, kind of neat to see. Had him head first in the net, I was going to get his head in the net then grab him by the wrist at the tail, but he got a hook snagged on the net and tore free. Was glad to see him go, but on the other hand would've liked to get a pic.
  3. I do remember those, something else I had forgotten about.
  4. That is a pretty neat find, I can remember the days of using can openers, well I remember the adults using them. Something I had forgotten about, it's neat to see reminders like this of the ways things were back in the day. It also brings back memories of those throw away tabs they used to have on cans, pull the tab right off the can. Oil cans too.
  5. Could've qualified for a world record, but it got fried. White catfish catch shatters Connecticut, and maybe, world record | KTUL
  6. That's great, life is keeping me busy so haven't had a chance to get over to the Beav in a while, but looking forward to the cooler weather and good to see there are still a few in the lake.
  7. Camping at the park will be closed so I anticipate the power will be off, so bring the charcoal - Jeff.
  8. I'm hoping someone will volunteer to bring some burgers.
  9. Yep good for him, I watched some of the live coverage the last day and Neal is about as laid back for a guy leading for a $100K check can be. Watched him land several 3+ smallies on a drop shot rig, they'd pull drag and run around and Neal was cool as a cucumber.
  10. They look to be close to reaching the top of power pool.
  11. So far 14-15. We'll probably get a few more as we get closer.

    You Mizzou-ites probably didn't notice, but the Hogs beat Texas this week.
  13. Sorry to hear that, hope it works out for you!
  14. That's some good fishing, thanks for the report!
  15. Angler Sets State Record with Giant Crappie - Wired2Fish.com
  16. Congrats to them for a fine showing! Bring him on over to Table Rock for the Bo James Memorial tournament on October 16.
  17. Hey, need a volunteer to be the weigh-in person. We'll have 2 plaques, one for biggest bass and one for biggest 3 bass limit. I have one of those MLF scales, and I guess the best way to weight the 3 bag limit would be to put them in a tourney bag and weigh them with the scale.
  18. I'll bring dogs and buns, small charcoal grill, charcoal and lighter fluid. I will also bring hand sanitizer.
  19. Michael Neal - 120 lbs. 36 bass, works out to be better than a 3 lb. average, that's some fishing. Wheeler not too far behind him. St. Clair is a lake I want to fish someday.
  20. More B-24's were manufactured than B-17's.
  21. Thanks for the report, it has been a while since I have been over to Beaver. Neat aircraft, you'd think it would be tough for them to get enough room to land on take off as busy at the lake must have been.
  22. Ahhh, the Big TRD, didn't know it existed, but that looks like it has potential for sure combined with the Flatlands head.
