Stay Away From Crane Creek

Haha this title might really attract some attention, especially from my last post. Anyway, was fishing the LWR yesterday and ran into Ray, he was doing his usual, running the dogs Rusty & Jake. He mentioned that there will be a large bike gang coming into the Crane/Highway BB Area this weekend. Apparently he heard through Crane PD, that highway patrol, FBI, and BATF may be in the area too. So he just wanted to let everyone know that if you plan on fishing Crane this weekend, be aware.

Water is low. Fishing is average. Saw three cottonmouths. They are out now. Walk slowly and carry a big stick. The weeds are thick at LWR. Usually they will bolt, but one I got close enough for it to straighten up and display its fangs.

Ill be on the current this weekend. Forgive my ignorance but how close is crane to the montauk area

Fish always lose by being "got in and dressed." It is best to weigh them while they are in the water. The only really large one I ever caught got away with my leader when I first struck him. He weighed ten pounds.

There are no snakes on Crane, come down and enjoy, no snakes at all. It's the frogs that will get you.

I'm surprised you got any fishing done after running into Jesus Ray. Ol' boy is full of stories...and, uh, "stuff." Did he train that revolver on you and ask for your papers?

He talked to me for nearly 2 hours one time...

Good Lord, 2hours ? A common windy local is a bigger turnoff than any outlaw biker group, or clutch of angry moccasins.

Hey I'd love to chew the fat with ya there, JR but I ate a bad eggroll and have a terrible case of explosive diarrhea.

"Oh man I feel for ya there. One time my sister inlaw made up some tater salad and well usually she makes the best darn tater salad you ever ate, she puts real mustard seed in it and uses irish potaters with the skins on, hell she won awards 4 years in a row at the Fall shindig there at the civic center. But boy one year she made it up a couple days in advance and while she was throwin' it together she realized she was short on onions and left it on the counter figgurin' she'd be back right quick, well that old Dodge dart of hers threw a timing chain and......... "

OMG, just shoot me!

I thought the windy locals are what gave the Ozarks its character, LOL
