Fishing Bennett Springs

Hey everyone,
It was a great weekend. I got to go up to Bennett Springs Saturday morning. I met Marshall and Mike at the Store about 7 and we were ready to go. We went up and started around the spring and the water was a little high but clear. It didn't look like there were too many fish in the river. No matter!!! I was fishing!!!! I fished around the spring for a while and then started my walk about. I ended up below the big bridge in the shallow swift water. I threw the Killer worm at them and they responded. Caught 25 till 10am. Fished it under a palsa about 3 feet and a small shot about 1foot above the Killer!! Went up to came and saw the rest of the Robbs and Watsons. It was great to see and talk to everyone!!! Ellen your growing up way too fast!!! Stewart your a wild man!!!! Cindy you haven't changed a bit!!!! Mike it was great to meet the rest of your family!!! Great bunch!!! It was a great weekend!!!! Fish Fun and home to my family!! Doesn't get any better than that!!!

Lots of news

Well it's been an interesting week. I was ask to talk at the local Rotary lunch this week. I saw a lot of familiar faces and had a good time with them. They had a lot of great questions and I hope I got them the answered good enough.

I talked with a friend from St Louis also this week. He had a great trip to Bennett last week and did pretty well with tough conditions. He did quite well with the killer worm!! I hope to get to go down to Taney and visit with them at the end of the month.

That brings me to Taneycomo. The water is lower on Table Rock and that means FISHING!!!!! But of course I've got 8 rods to finish and I can't go!!! They have been catching a lot of nice fish.

Roaring River is still up and stained. They are turning loose some lunkers every Friday evening so if you want a shot at one be there Saturday morning!!!

Tight lines and smiles!!
