Yes- just haven't had time to post them yet. Maybe tonight when I get home from work? :shrug:

Anyhow vital stats for the gobbler were approx. 20 lbs, 10.5 inch beard, 1 and 1/8 inch spurs.

We had our Truman/LOZ trip last week. Got into a couple spoonbill and I caught a 6 lb walleye. Lost one day to rain all day which really pushed the crappie bit out but had a good time.

The paddlefish were somewhat tough this year- low flow until late in the season and now more flow than you could ever imagine. There's no way right now, if the season were to still be open, to effectively snag.

That walleye is a good one- what part of the lake did you get it and what kind of structure? Spawn on the tribs has been done for a while but pattern on the lake is different and probably behind some. Crappie are definitely behind some, and the changing water levels (higher) and changing weather are going to make it another tough year likely for fishing but good for the spawn.

Got him up Tebo on a maribou crappie jig about twenty feet off a pea gravel bank in. 5 fow. Good challenge to catch a toothy fish on 4 lb test. One of these years we'll hit the spawn right on this trip.
