    i got to meet troy (spoonfish) and earl (catfish earl) last week we had a sinker making party at my dads house in his garage. we had a blast and poured alot of sinkers around 150 lbs worth or so . troy and earl are a couple of really great guys nicest people you ever want to meet:big_smile: we shared fish stories and fishing styles and knots and of course some good jokes:smile2::smile2:.

    its was just a really great day a couple of dads buddies came over drank a few cold ones dad slept like a baby that night i tell ya:smile2::smile2: funny as heck!!!!!!

    troy told me about his catfish tournaments and all the prizes hes gonna have for them this year he really has alot of great stuff to win bait tanks rod holders , drift socks all kinds of gear and money to win so give troy a message and find out all the info gonna be a good tournaments in truman and the osage river and even a couple night tournaments so come on down and have some fun fishing and you never know you might just win some money and prizes .

    earl showed me his bait fish traps hes making and i was really impressed with them better then you can buy from a store im gonna order 1 from him to catch me some perch, bluegills,bullheads, for when i go flathead fishing. be great for you guys that trott line and jug line also they would make getting bait so easy and they are built tuff and wont rust. so give earl a message and make your bait getting needs easier!!!!!

    I had a great time guys. Thanks, it was nice meeting everyone. I looked for your dad at the dam today Scotty. Didnt see his truck, he probably got there about the time I left. Did he catch any thing there today? Should have plenty of weights for a while, I had 44 of just the 12 ouncers that I brought home. Now we need to get out and loose a few of them...:0a23:

    I'd be up for giving montrose a go again. I went up there about a month ago and caught some pretty nice fish....the only problem was they were all carp...had some really good hits though. I'm sure its getting better now.
