Default BassFishin Get together 2/2009

Last year i offered to host the get togethor for 2009 via of a joke from WTL. My question is before i move any further forward. Is that what do you guy's want. Or do you want to meet somewhere else. If i do do it we will do it in march below truman durring the annual white bass run. I have to tell you it is a bit unpredictable in weathor here in Mo that time of year. But the whites will be hitting regardless. The heated lodging at uncle Gabby's & a warm breakast from Maxines each day. With some coffee to go course. We should beable to tuff it up. We are on the jet stream so that could mean a 50 degree day & the next it could be 20. So you need be be prepared for that. If you choose else where i will not be insulted at all what so ever. Just post your opinions. Majority rules on my planning.

It just seems a little early in the year to me, and white bass arent quite real bass. They're plenty fun though. We need to have a robust discussion here I think and figure a plan.

I know it. There is bound to be some fine fishing there.

There are several factors that must be considered.

First, we need to know who in theory would like to attend this event.

Second, we need to know those people's locations. Its best to position the thing within a days drive of their residence.

Third, we need to understand what time most people are available. March? April? May? Summer?

Then, we pick a location. As far as your location sounds, it sounds fine - but the weather is probably going to cause problems for others as well. I don't think I could attend. Too far to play early season roulette with the weather so I can fish for white bass.

The Guntersville event worked last year, first cause John did a great job, but also because it had the advantages of being at a good time of year, it was a centrally located lake and lake Guntersville is always ranked as a top tier trophy bass fishery - as I told someone else, "even if it turned out I didnt like you people I could still go fishing on a great lake."

There is not one lake in Missouri that can't holds it's own to other other lakes. Smithvile,Truman, Table Rock, Stockton, Lake of the Ozarks, Bullshoals, Pome de terre, Taneycomo. No state has more famous lakes than missouri. Read your stat's Mo plays host to more fishing tourments of every type than any state in the US. Plus Mo is right dab in the middle of the US. That is why were able to host so many fishing events.

Thats great, and maybe Mizzou would offer an opportunity for more western anglers to attend - we just need to treat this like its in real early, preliminary stages.

But since we are finding out info, how far is you proposed idea from trout fishing, and what type of trout? What is the closest major city or town? What about camping opportunities? Last year I was near broke so I (and Daniel) brought tents - some might have to do that again.

(BTW, is there a Lamberts close by?)

The best trout fishing in the US is at Taneycomo in Branson on the white river. Which holds the worlds record for the largest brown trout ever caught. lamberts is just outside springfield. BPS world headquarters is springfield. The bait monkey is hard to get off your back at the worlds largest BPS.

Nope & fishing is like south meets north. It's a hienz 57 type of fishing. Where both yanks & southeners should do well. We could do it later in the year if yall want at the same place. But we get very busy in the ozarks in the summer months.

I really think we do need to aim for later in the year. What is the closest town? I want to see where we are looking at exactly.

I understand the later in the year weather is more predictable, but it sure would be nice to time it with the spawn!

I realize that too many people may not want to do this but im just throwing it out there... Sandusky, OH... Lake Erie... great fishing for largies and smallies. If the water is too rough you can stay in the bay... and just fish for largies. Also, there is great camping nearby, and Cedar Point Amusement Park is nearby along with other attractions... perhaps in the summer. Just throwing it out there. Lets here your thoughts!

Good ideas, everybody...let's throw everything in a pot and stir it, see what rises to the top.

AND, it doesn't have to be just 1 get-together. Northwest region, Midwest region, South region, Texas region, etc...

moose........just a thought but what about having one at grand lake sometime closer to the summer? there isn't a better lake anywhere around here than grand when it comes to largemouth and even some kentuckies (except maybe table rock). it's heaven for a power fisherman and the finesse guys hold their own there as well.

There are a couple reasons I'd have to say this may not be possible.

1. Temperature/weather. To us northern guys, cold ain't bad, but some of the southern guys might not come because it'd be cold. I personally, would rather be cold, cause it's easier to dress warm than to cool yourself down in near 100* weather. And heck, if this spring is gonna be anything like last, we'll still be ice fishing in march.

2. White bass... They're considered pests by the walleye fishermen here in the Maumee River in Toledo about a 20 minute drive, if that, from my house. It's a bit farther than that to MO. And I'd rather fish for real bass.

I like C-rig's idea though. I wouldn't mine coming out ot MO to fish grand lake or table rock.

Just some thoughts to think about.

Smallie fishing on Erie, or even St. Clair would be a pretty cool get together. I'd definately come.

Since we are now throwing out options;

Last year G'ville was very successful, might as well throw that in. Its the best lake for trophy largemouth that we are going to put on the list. Might be one of the best in the world.

Or, Joe Wheeler State Park near Wheeler dam. It has many cabins, rustic camping areas, world class smallmouth fishing with lots of very good sized largemouth - the cabins are on Wheeler lake but you have the lock and a good ramp onto Wilson lake 2 miles away. I know this area well.

Reelfoot Lake Tennessee - It would be able to draw people from the midwest, north, south and possibly Texas.

Sam Rayburn, possibly.

We really need to get a map with the possible people who are interested in going and look for a good location relative to that.

If we discover that there are enough interested parties, but spread out, we might consider Mississippi's idea of regional locations.
