Short story, my back has healed up petty good, its been almost 7 months now since the surgery. With helping the girls (my daughters) I have not been fishing much.:embarassed: She has gave me to OK to take a 1 ½ days to 2 day trip fishing by my self. This coming month. I was think about hitting the Osage at Osceola at 13 hwy or going to 83 Hwy and going up the Sac. I what to target Flats. Now from the people that live in the area, are these good places to start and go up rivers from there? I think the first ½ day I would just travel up river and look for holes and wood, to fish. I still do not feel safe putting my boat in the Big Mo.
