Les, Richard and I kicked for Elsmore about 0530 this morning. The fishing was slow. There was a caddis hatch that the bluegill were feeding on. Richard caught a couple channel catfish. One while his fly was hung up on the feeder cable. We had coffee on the tailgate and a good visit. It has been a couple weeks since the Smith men had a fising trip. We all enjoyed the time and look forward to the next one.Richard got his new pack and sleeping bag ordered so he is closer to a pack outing in a few weeks. We will hike and fish the eastern end of the Elk City trail as it has good fishing along the trail.
Josh and Les spent a week at Scout camp a while back. Joshua is turning into the hard core camper and hiker like his Dad.. I am proud of him. Until next time....I wish it would cool off a little de Paul N0NBD
We were at Elsmore a while before sunrise this morning. We launched at the ramp and fished the feeder. Richard and I both caught nice channels and some gills. I caught a couple weird looking gills. The heat ran us off by 8:30 but it was great to fish.
I do have some QRP radio to write about. The 4SQRP is assembeling at West Mineral Kansas at the Big Brutus mueseum to do a portable operation. The weekend date is set for September 10-11. the whole operation should be a blast! de Paul N0NBD
Richard and I fished both Saturday and Sunday mornings. We hit the Buffalo Lake at sunrise both days and the sun proved HOT! We caught greenies and I caught a 15 inch bass. I was fumbling for my camera and lost the fish at the lip. We went to Les's but he and his family were gone to the water park in KC, I suspect. The only thing I have to show for the fish is the memory of the fight and a chewed up thumb from him floping loose.
I saw on Larry W2LJ's blog the other day the temp on the speedometer. When taking a college car for service this afternoon this flashed up on the speedo..... It was a hot one today. No relief in site de Paul N0NBD
Les was packing for a Scout campout this week so Richard and I went to Buffalo to fish. We fished the big east cove in variable winds. Richard layed into a channel cat that fought for quite a while. Richard was using his new 3 wt. rod and did a fine job playing the fish in. He also caught a couple nice bass and a ton of greenies. I caught a couple nice bass and some 6-8 inch greenies. We saw Les and Josh off to their Scout camp and kicked for home. HOT but happy with the days fisning.
It has been too blamed hot to play at my kitchen station. 80 meters has been terrible for me and 40 has not been much better. When not doing 10 hr days at work, I have been chillin out in the living room where it is cooler. Also I have been getting up early and "feeshin"
Richard and I hit Buffalo lake this morning and had some fair fishing. the water is in the 80s so the bass and crappie are in the deeper water. The greenies are spawning and biting like crazy. If the fly gets by the greenies and has a moment to sink a nice bass will bite. It was a fine morning fishing and we headed home when the sun was high and HOT.
Les, Richard and I were on Buffalo Lake at 5:30 am this morning. We were trying to beat the heat. We fished until 8:30 and called it . The sun was out of the clouds and hot. We caught lots of greenies and Richard caught a small bass. Les was fishing but enjoying playing with his fancy trolling motor and remote control.
Richard and I kicked for Elsmore this morning thinking we would sink a few golden boys at the rock wall. We both caught fish but it was slow. Richard caught several "mad" pumpkin seeds and one greenie... I caught a minnow and a small bass but we had a good time. We will have to move our starting times up some as the heat is on.
