Default Trip to Missouri - April, 2022

This trip was planned a year ago after the paddlefishing adventure. www.thehunterslife.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20798

That said, the trip was primarily to get together with my friends, visit, and go fishin'. It was a great trip! I took right at 2000 pictures in two weeks. Got some great pictures of turkeys, and wood ducks, and spoonbill (ducks), and even some fish pictures. I should probably start with the fish pictures.

We went to Lake of the Ozarks to fish for paddlefish (AKA spoonbills). John caught two the first day, this one, about a 40-pounder: and one too small to keep.

The powers that be were not generating electricity (letting water through the Truman dam), so the paddlefishing was poor. We did snag a drum and this nice 20-lb flathead that we couldn't keep because it was snagged.

What happens when you put your hand in a flathead's mouth to land it.

We decided to jugline some catfish.

A 20lb blue:

A 25-lb blue:

Another 25-lb blue:

And various other blues in the 8 to 12-pound class. We've decided that next year we're going to head down AFTER paddlefishing season closes, and just jugline for catfish! More pictures, many more pictures, to come.

Be nicer than necessary.
