Ok B's, here we go again, for the 7th time.
Sam and I said this post needs to have some mention of the Spoonbill hex and other Voodoo weather hexes Johnny throws at us.:sneaky:

Ok, now on to my fishing day.
My dad and I fished Greers today and I took him to the farthest reaches of Middle Fork. We went to a shoal and that was far enough in the ComboCat.
We were just fishing and not targeting any particular fish. Of course, whenever we got into some White Bass, I would get some texts from the Big Man, but I can't repeat them on here, unless there isn't a filter:sneaky:
Anyway, we caught 30-40 White Bass, Black Bass, Brown Bass, Crappie and even 3 big Hybrids. I did have a monster crappie I saw, but it pulled off.
I spit out the infamous Jimmy Swaggart quote....."Forgive me Sammy, for I have sinned...", when I tied on a Spinnerbait and pounded some buck brush. No fish until my dad swung in a nice 18" largemouth on it.
I just fried the bass and crappie, and am about to enter coma #37 for 2015.

There is a lot of Nasty Weather out there now. I sure hope all of us in Ark are spared and prayers to those in Okla and other areas for the damage they have had.

Been working to much to fish lately. I have to work again tomorrow and Monday then taking off to see the sugar doctor again Tuesday.

We did go by the coffee shop in Roland today for a few hours. I was down $60 and put the last $20 I was going to lose in a 25 cent red ruby machine. This machine is a 5 quarter machine and I was playing 3 quarters. It hit some and had me up and down for about 30 minutes getting me up to about $90 then it turned red and spun twice, the second spin lined up 3 red ruby's :cool1::cool1::cool1:. It shot up with what was already on the machine to $743, I spun it about 3 more times cashed out and came home :biggrin1:.

I'm still here in Missouri you B! In 2 days I head for the tornado hellhole called Oklahoma. Got mushroomin' on the brain this go-round.
Had PipeRat's 2nd annual sinker pour today, it was a blast. About 20 folks showed up. Fried fish, French fries, deer chili, cheese dip, deer sausage, tater salad and a few other things too. Wore out now, need to get into shape!

See you B's in the mushroom patch!

They are not bad if you eat em while its hot. We can only keep two a year per person and once you reach your limit your done. We kept one on this trip that was hooked in a spot that may of been terminal. They have a bunch of red meat in them so cutting as much of that out as you can is critical to decent table fare.

I only go once maybe twice a year, just to change things up a bit. If everyone on the boat gets to land one then its been a good trip.

I'm afraid you may be right! LOL:biggrin1:

Wanted to go fishing this morning. Got up at 5 checked the weather. Wind was terrible, decided to wait till about noon when it is supposed to die down and change out of the south.

Anyway I got to get out of the house and give the wife a chance to do the housework> :laugh: So I will be going wind or no wind.
