    Finally made it to FT Riley and promptly got myself a fishing liscence and hit Milford lake. I actually went fishing befor I had all my household goods unpacked......I think I have a problem.:wink:

    Anyway, I've managed to land a few nice channels in the 3-5 pound range fishing at north overlook park. Unfortunately, the snags in that place have claimed almost every peice of gear I throw out there.:angry:


    Anyway, just wanted to say howdy again ( I was in Iraq last time I posted). Hopefully I'll see some of you on the water and you can teach this old Salmon and Steelhead guy how to get some big, nasty cats!

    Tight Lines,
    Bennett

    I never did get stationed at Riley.

    I heard enough stories that I think I have been there though.. :smile2:

    Quite a few guys fish that lake from the BOC. Some are retired and do it full time to.

    Get ahold of Catfish Fever, he can get you acclimatized on that like quickly.

    Welcome Bennett! You will like fishing Milford a lot more than you will like Ft. Riley :smile2:. Just messing with ya, Riley aint that bad. There is a lot of military history on that post if you are into that sort of thing. Clear your calendar for sometime in Oct. and join us at Milford for our Fall mini gathering. It will be a great time.

    That's actually why I chose FT Riley.

    I was offered Ft Campbell, KY, Ft Bliss, TX and Ft RIley.

    Ft Bliss was out of the question, I've had enough deserts thank you very much.

    Ft. Campbell has one stocked fishing pond.......Ft Riley has 29.:eek:oooh:


    So, Yeah, it was a no brainer.

    Good to have you here in KS. Lots of good fishing around up that way. I fell in love with fishing at Kansas State.
