This year was great with somewhere in the neighborhood of 500+ fish caught with over 300 caught on the First Day! I'm already looking forward to next year because we not only have a new cool place to stay, but we can leave our boats in the water, not pay the daily park fee, have a fire at night, and get cheap bait without leaving our digs. Oh and the proprietor is easy on the eyes. And, thanks to Adam, we now know the mayor of Selkirk!
And thanks to Mark for these pics!

I took some guys from Inwood smallie fishing at the MO river in May. We boated around 50 smallies and one 20" walleye. Fished the Big MO twice with not much luck in March. A trip in June with the guy holding the smallie below and did very well on casting jigs towards shore. And a trip in September with a few walleyes and the smallie pictured below.
The crappie and northern were caught at a local sand pit. I didn't catch either but cleaned and ate both of them. Had a decent summer with lots of bass caught at this sand pit with friends and family.
Pictured below is a mess of pan fish. Kept 40 in about six hours of fishing on East and West Lake Okoboji this fall. I spent a week in August in Okoboji and enjoyed fishing the lakes. Lots of action on pan fish just good ol' slip bobbers and worms with the chance of catching anything in play.
If anybody wants to go fishing, just call Im likely going somewhere! A big thanks to Dad for letting me borrow his boat.

2 Dads, 2 Boys, 3 Buck tags all filled. Christian shot this nice buck the second morning, he missed his first shot at 220 yds, but ran quickly to the top of a ridge and got down prone ad dropeed him at 150 yds on the second shot. A perfect shot.
We camped this year, I got nearly twice as much rest as opposed to driving back and forth from town. It was a great hunt- Again!

Am 100% sure CHristian shot the buck I sent you guys pics of, so heres what he look like when the velvets off.
11 points, hes got one little sticker off the back base of his horn, which when we zoomed in on the velvet photos, you could clearly identify.
HE came out at about 7:40 PM, about 80 yd, Christian dropped him where he stood with a .308. He disappeared(fell into beans), I wasn't watching the deer when he shot(I was watching the gun), when I looked back he was gone, but there was buck about 35 yds from where he stood, I thought how did he move so quick?, but Christian said- "hes down, I know it", then I looked a the alive buck and could see he wasn't the same one, he was nice, but lacked the giant brow tines. He just kept eating, like he'd never heard the gun shots...
hes got a 19.5 inch big spread, 9 inch tip to tip, 6.5 inch brow tines

Same spot ,2 years in a row, 3 turkeys down! Brian graciously let the 4th one walk this year.....I gather it might be first picked next year on the last evening? Check out the difference in foiliage on essentially the same week.......yes it was colder this year...

Not too many pics like these on this blog- you gotta drive 15 hours! OK , the fishing wasn't spectacular, but- watching your son reel in a 27lb mackerel(his biggest fish ever), and your youngest nephew reeling in his biggest fish ever (that Graham is a fishing machine I tell).......both are always a treat, .
Then- we have my youngest daughter, other nephew, sister in law, puking over the other side of the boat for chum.......ah memories.....

Ahh....love this time of year! I have moved out of the hunting mode and have hit fishing mode big time.
I caught this 24 1/2" walleye from the dock in 3.5 feet of water about an hour before sunset, along with several crappie, a little northern and a couple of decent perch.
There was a tournament on the lake the weekend before and there was an 8 pounder, a 6 pounder and several other nice 'eyes taken during the day. Can't wait to get out there this weekend!

Jeff, Jordan, Jake, Steve, and I had a successful Saturday goose hunt on the ground by Wentworth. Jeff and Jordan had let me know when they were coming up to hunt the ever evasive sky carp. After driving around a bit they decided to set up their nice decoy spread near the big slew by Wentworth. (Needless to say their decoys were much more impressive then the first year they came up!) Friday evening they produced two geese with Saturday looking promising - it was up early for the Iowans. Wind had switched and was out of the South and decoys had to be moved as well as the blinds....... needless to say I showed up when much of that work was done... Perks of having access to great hunting ground) As you can see Jeff, Jordan and Jake ( Triple J goose hunting) must know what they are doing, geese decoyed nice and steel shot filled the air bringing down 13 geese in total. You will have to ask Jordan about his upsidedown backwards/hanging out of blind shot. It was a successful hunt and a fun time........ nothing better then seeing waterfowl flaring into your decoys...... and the words "Take Em" echoed!

It’s supposed to be 70 degrees this week! So, time to bust out the turkey pics and get pumped up! Here are a few shots around the camp and hunting last year.
Fellow turkey hunters, we’ll be having opening night lasagna provided again by Team KS Gulker again, served with a fine plastic cup of Coors light, green beans, Italian bread, and pecan pie with gobs of whip cream. Top it all off with one of Joel’s cigarettes..
Then we have Kelly’s famous vomit breakfast. Following that- some turkey hunting. You’ll then be treated to your 6” subs, chips and little debbies again for lunch, followed by some more turkey hunting.
Followed by an Iowa crockpot cook-off of some delicious recipe (which I forgot, did not write down, but am sure was delicious-Pork?), with green beans, bread, a plastic cup of day old luke warm Coors light, and pecan pie with gobs of whip cream. Top it all off with one of Joel’s cigarettes..
A little vomit breakfast, turkey hunting and subs, followed by crockpot smoked brisket, corn on my knob, bread, a cup of two day old luke warm Coors light, and pecan pie with gobs of whip cream. Top it all off with one of Joel’s cigarettes..
