    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.

    Hey Steve, great to hear you're on the mend and ready to hit the water again. Haven't fished the water there, but I'm sure you'll have a blast. You stay safe and just don't overdo it!!!:wink:

    Congrats on getting back to good health AND fishing!

    Having had major back surgery myself, I'd highly recommend taking it easy on the first couple outings. Back surgery changes things, and at least for me, slowed my movements and some reaction time down. Be careful and think ahead. Don't get yourself into some place that'll be more than you can handle.

    Have a GREAT time on your first big trip back!!! :big_smile:

    Please be careful. I too have had my fair share of back problems and the cuttn' zone. When ya think you have it made and your back eases up a bit is the perfect time for it to through a fit again. Believe me i know......
    Be careful and do take it easy and go slow. My worst part i realized the hard way is that my balance hasn't been half of what it was before surgery. So don't be a superman. Good luck and enjoy your trip!
