    Nah, I'm waiting on the hardcore guys like you and Crazy to get out there and break up some of the ice so the rest of us can get on the river:smile2:

    Seriously, though, there were some nice fish hit in KC last year, hopefully that trend continues this summer.

    There are lots of Texas fishermen whacking blues right now. Lakes include HUGO, TEXOMA, LAVON, TAWAKONI, KERR, and LEWISVILLE. I know you got some mighty good cattin in KC, but now is the time to travel south to get into Texas best fishing of the year. Recent reports include lots of 30 lbrs a few 50 lbrs and even a 70+. from TEXOMA.

    I hooked a 300lb chunk of ice down at Kaw Point yesterday :0a18: Was a pretty good fight, but the dang circle hook pulled out just when I started to turn it.

    I bet this is an awesome time to fish Texoma...Kansas City, not so much just yet.

    I just got done changing motors out on my boat this past weekend, I ended up putting a 2003 90ph mercury on the back of my 17 foot boat. I went to the river last night to take it for a test drive.......man does it scoot! I bet I gained 10-12 mph and I like it! I have a few more things I need to get buttoned up on my boat, but other than that I am ready to chase the blues. :big_smile:

    Doug is that the 80# you guys hit last summer? You guys tore 'em up. I only fished downtown about 3 times last summer and we hit a 45 flat, a 55 blue, and a 70 blue. I know Josh hit at least 1 60 and not sure how many smaller in the 30's, 40's, and 50's were caught and released by just you, Brad K., Josh, and Doug C.

    Nice to see that not only are there a lot of big fish coming out of that stretch of the river but that all were turned loose. Now if we can just get them to stay between say Waverly and Leavenworth we're set:smile2:

    That and it freaks people out when you show them pix of pigs with the city in the background.:smile2: Seeing Gary down there on the screen reminded me - you hit at least one 60 from the bank last year didn't you Gary? Plus several other nice ones if I remember right. Now that I finally got the title to my trailer and can get plates for it (don't ask:eek:oooh:) y'all may see me down there more this year:wink:

    I know a buddy of mine hit a 40 and another big one that he couldn't get in the boat and gosh only knows how many hawgs Andrew pulled out of the river last summer in town.

    Last year was kind of an off year for me - one big fish, which was a 50 from the bank. Had 7 fish between 42 and 58lbs from the bank in 2006 by comparison, so that is probably what you are remembering.

    I spent a lot of time in a boat last year, which I enjoyed, but it wasn’t real productive for some reason. I pulled some nice ones into the boat for Steve, though, and I’m pretty well sold on the boat fishing. Tiffany has been having some health issues – if we can ever get past those I’ll get more serious about getting a boat of my own, at which point I’ll pretty much own my own parking space down there at Kaw Point :0a1:

    Awesome video! Best part was your fishing partner trying to release that one that had his hand in a death grip:smile2: Thought he was going to lose his glove for a minute!
