    1. PVC flag poles can with stand sustain (over 36 hours) 45 M.P.H. winds at El Dorado and tents can't.

    2. Glow Sticks are not just for the grandkids.

    3. When you 'thank' someone on this web site and the little tab 'Remove Your Thanks' pops up, that does not mean the Web Site wants you to remove your 'thanks'.

    4. Cast Nets are new to us and work really well, thank you everyone. We're old men, who makes Cast Nets smaller than 7' in diameter with 3/4 lb. per ft. weight?

    5. Shad eat moss, maybe thats where all the moss goes, lol. Shad and minnows are not the same and shad works well for catching cats. Thank you everyone.

    6. There really is a way to make good tasting Hush Puppies. Thank you.

    You might be a Kansas Catfisherman if while fishing on a log jam you get arrested for tresspassing.

    Guess you have to get out there and do it to know that your flag poles can withstand that wind. Better luck next time with the tent fellas:wink:. It was great meeting you and John at the Perry gathering. Fish on!

    your success is directly related to the amount of time you spend on the water! not really a new find,but one that can be hard to accomplish sometimes!

    this one is more of a murphy's law type,when fishing big cat's the biggest,meanest cat you catch will come from the lightest,weakest rod you have out!

    finding like minded friends to fish with is a gift not to be easily dismissed,it can make even a lousy trip enjoyable,when you share it!

    1) Circle hooks work on soft shell/snapping/water turtles.

    2) I have absolutely no idea when the best time to fish is.

    3) I have absolutely no idea what the best bait to use is.

    4) I know the difference between CPR and CRP according to catfish.

    5) When fishing the river, wear a life jacket.

    6) Don't tell your Wife a time you will be back for sure.

    Great Post Ron ...rep to you.

    - You really can cook coffee over the open flame
    - When your gas gauge read's empty (believe it)!
    - Men really do know how to cook
    - Kansas gathering's really can draw over 100 boc memebers
    - I would rather be a Kansas BOC members than any other
    - You can/will meet over 20+ new friends every year
    - There are other body's of water to fish than just lakes
    - You can catch catfish in March
    - Winter really does come sooner each year.
    - Kansas is the only state that has 4-5 gatherings every year
    - JJ will never change
    - Lyida & Jim are the BEST!!

    Things I've learned this year. :crazy:

    -You can have friends you've never met
    -Kyle wasn't exaggerating about Ashley cooking.
    -Jim CAN get up before noon.
    -Having a map on your phone doesn't always get you where you want to go.
    -Don't use the back door of the shower house.
    -True friends are still friends even after you hang sh!t on them.
    -Sometimes its more fun to watch others catch fish than to catch them yourself.

    -Boats are expensive
    -As soon as you get a boat you will be too busy to use it as much as you should
    -Shad isnt as hard to find as I originally thought (at least in the summer :smile2:)

    Log jams, while enticing, can be dangerous, and prove to be expensive to fish on occasionally.:eek:oooh:

    -You can catch catfish with a bobber (thanks Shelby)

    -If you put a wet, shad slime covered cast net in your trunk in July, you WILL hear about it from your girlfriend.

    -No matter how excited you are about catching your PB channel, don't stick your hand in its mouth, it hurts:smile2:

    I have learned there a bunch of guys and gals on the Kansas site thatare good folks, I have enjoyed readinng the posts and the stories
    I have learned there are a bunch of fishermen that know a hell of a lot about catfishing, and if you pay attenion you can learn a thing or two

    Things I've learned in my two months living in Kansas---


    When the guy on the news says it's gonna be windy, believe him.

    Milford Lake has more snags per square foot than any other body of water on earth.

    Snapping turtles will hiss at you when you catch them.

    A grown man can scream like a little girl when a snapping turtle hisses at him.

    Jim has the coolest fishing vehicle ever devised.

    If you don't like the weather in Kansas, just wait 20 minutes. It'll change.

    The skunks at Milford are NOT scared of you!!:eek:oooh:
