    Has anybody fished the new Lake Lenexa yet. It is a 35 acre lake out at 89th and Monticello {off of k-7 and Prairie Star Parkway}. It just opened to fishing 5/1. I stopped by there the other day.Pretty little lake lots of trails and overlooks and standing timber.Fairly liberal fish limits 10 channel cats :angry:etc.Electric motors only and boats off the lake at 9:00:angry:. I think the park closes at 11:00. I will try it out this weekend and report back.No feeders that I could see on the negative side:sad2:. I'm gonna take the gas motor off the back of my jon boat and put the 36 volt trolling motor on.

    Summer time to me means the pungent odor of soybeans.I was heading out Monday and needed some chum.I usually drain off some or all of the liquid off of the beans before I leave the house.But I normally do it across the street in the gutter.I was lazy and drained it off in the backyard.Big mistake.Roy Williams the wonder dog my 125lb golden retreiver manage to eat a few beans and rolled in the wet spot from the chum liquid.Oh my god he smelled like a sewer. His breath could knock a buzzard off a poop wagon at 200 yards.My wife was throwing a coniption.She had to take him to the groomer and get a bath.

    I know how you feel Eric. My dog likes to roll in the stinkiest stuff she can find. She found where we butchered our deer this year. She tracked blood from one end of the house to the other :angry:. Thank goodness for the little green clean machine.

    Eric and all you KU fans, I think you guys need to spend more time with " MAN's BEST FRIEND" instead of reading rivals.com wondering about the recruits KU has coming.

    Funny story.

    Sorry to hear about the dog rolling in the juice, eric. That stinks (pun intended). That smell doesnt wash out, you have to wear it out. Have you thought about getting him a nice cologn.

    It's not that bad. You get used to the smell after a while. I almost always catch some fish when I'm using it.Except when I went to Gardner Lake with Shelby last year.

    rivals.com big 12 team recruiting national rankings Texas #2, KU # 6, OU #7, OSU #11, Baylor #17, KSU #18. Notice Missouri is nowhere to be found in there. Those 3 stiffs Mike Anderson brought in nobody has ever heard of.I heard one of them had committed to James Madison first.Reading the rivals web site might put most MU BBall fans on suicide watch.Losing 3 1000 point scorers in one year is tough on any team.But when you replace them with some division ii players you are in big trouble. over under on wins for MU in 2010 15-17 wins.

    35 acres is plenty big enough for some pigs. I caught my biggest catfish out of a 6 acre lake. I released the fish back in there too. Haven't heard of anybody catching him. Some day I'll catch him again when he is a 100lbs! :smile2::big_smile:

    That's because I haven't been out there yet.Lol :big_smile::big_smile::big_smile::wink: I think we can take care of that. The dinner bell will ring the first time I go out there.I only have 6 or 7 bags of crappie in the freezer it's time to stock up. Then we'll concentrate on some of the small lakes.

    went out last night at lake lenexa after the rain and caught 2 bass in 20 minutes on a scumfrog off the dock next to the boat ramp. no bites on hotdog and a bobber, but the lake looked nice and the fish were decent size for a new lake like that.
