    What would the Kansas site be without this thread!!

    Went down to the 8th Street ramp a bit ago, not open yet but they do have the concrete in place. Looks like they need to haul in some rock and it will be ready to use. I'll post up when the ramp is open.

    Yeah Geoff they extended the ramp a bit, but that will be for not if they just push the mud straight down the ramp when they clean it. Don't really care about folks launching and fishing there, most head up to the dam so they don't bother me any. They can keep the dam if I can have the rest ;)

    Boy, it sure was difficult to find this post again! I clicked the new messages button and it didn't even show up. I had to figure out how to manually go in and find it. This is quite overwhelming! I think I'll take a nap.... :sad:

    Thought I would pop in here and make a post on the best thread on the BOC.
    It sure is taking me a lot longer to check on what I want to check on now in the BOC.
    It's driving me crazy! :eek: :eek:

    Andrew, That's awesome! It seems like you keep catching them when nobody else is. A run every 10 minutes would be something.

    Just tell her you'll pack some heat in your fishin saddle, I do. Well, ok it's your mom and she probably wouldn't approve. I've never heard of anyone having trouble down there, granted I haven't fished there in years. Last time I was there in the early 90's, I fell asleep on the rocks and woke up to a spider chewing a new mouth on my upper cheek. Man that was painful, it made me lightheaded and sick to my stomach. I barely made it up that mount everest of a dirt wall. I think I have a phobia of that place cause I've never wanted to go back there since. :cursing:

    Charlie, is the 8th street ramp open 24-7 or is it a gated/locked park?

    When you all talk about the Kaw river, is this the same river as the Kansas river or is it a smaller one near-by? Never been there and just curious.
