    What place are you all planning to fish first when this winter " FINALLY" leaves ?

    Me, a little stretch about 100 yards long thats between the Bowersock & 4-35:Happy:
    Not fished it in some time & it has been on my mind for a while this winter.

    How about the rest of you? Any certain water been making you itch during this cold spell?

    Probably Big Blue River downstream from Tuttle Creek Outlet around the
    railroad bridge near Hwy 24. Or the Tuttle Creek Outlet itself on the east side.

    Im itchin to go after some blues and crappie but I will take what I can get. I will be goin to Ok soon to get my license and I will probably fish Kaw Lake. I like to fish alot of different places and I have found some new places to try this year. I prefer rivers but I also like the state lakes(no jets skis, free camping, etc.):smile1: and a few of the big lakes. I cant wait for the water to warm up. I will fish in the cold, I just wont touch the ice.:bad:
    Most likely the first place will be my local rivers, but when the ice is gone, or thin enough to bust, Im going to be everywhere.:biggrin:
    Hopefully spring comes early and the fish are hungry.:pig::eat:

    Eldorado lake for me.. unless there is no water in the creeks or the spillway isnt releasing. then ill hit butler lake for some big channels.. I cant wait for spring though i got a nice lil place where the white bass run up the creeks and you can sit for a few hours and catch upwards of a hundred fish =P..

    I plan to do some ice out fishing with winter killed shad for channels just as soon as it starts melting. 30-40 degrees and windy as heck! If I hit right I'll be nailing the channels!

    Sounds good Tom, its nice to have good company. I think Melvern will be like Milford was about 7 years ago when we were catching 20 lbers was a pretty regular thing. I just hope they put them back and we dont see a bunch of trotlines up there.

    I think your right Troy.Melvern is going to get good for some nice blues in the coming yrs.

    I dont think it gets a lot of pressure from line's except from some locals.

    But it's alwas seen that from clear back to the mid 70's.
