      Secure county schools will probably be closed the rest of the week.....pathetic. Go somewhere like Wyoming, it’ll have snowed a foot overnight, and the buses are out picking kids up....

      As someone who hauled bread at one time, make sure you buy four loaves of bread when you normally use one a week.

      We've got a big shutdown in February for 3 months. Unfortunately I'll be working a ton of OT and even more unfortunate that I'm salary so no paid OT.

      St. Peter don’t you call me cause I can’t go- I owe my soul to the company store......

  5. The classic qualifiers and the location poll should be finalized and active tonight or tomorrow. I've been trying to work through it all between working nights & sleeping.

      Thanks man!!  Cant wait to find out where it is.  

  6. Happy veterans day to all our vets. Thank you for your service, your sacrifices and your bravery.

  7. Things I've learned from our left-hand brothers & sisters in the wake of the Vegas shooting:

    1) Guns are magical creatures capable of acting on their own to inflict harm on people.

    2) 40+ guns are considered an arsenal. This includes handguns, long guns, shotguns and the dreaded "assault rifle" which, of all the gun types, is the most likely to act on its own accord.

    3) The statistics that show the cities in our country with the strictest gun laws also have the highest gun violence rates, are made up by the NRA.

    4) The tragedy in Vegas somehow is related to pending legislation on suppressors(NOT silencers....there is a difference, educate yourself before you speak as an "expert"). Although I've yet to see the connection.

    5) Somehow, knowing everything about a shooter's past and guessing why they might have committed these horrible acts of cowardice is acceptable news feed. No longer do we just need to know the facts, every Tom, Dick & Jane's opinion on why is necessary as well.

      We have lost the art of fence mending. Years ago, you would walk your fence line. You met your neighbor walking his. Exchanged greeting, maybe offered some help one way or the other. Went on your way and minded your own business. We are no longer capable of this.

      Is it the pen that misspells words? Is it the fork and spoon that makes you fat?- Yet somehow it’s the gun that kills people. Funny that left wingers call for gun control, yet praise Obama on a nuclear arms deal with Iran, which will lead to them having warheads.......

      LOL at Ross. I was about to say that same thing.....fishing, what's that? I ain't had a day off in 30 years it seems

      Just looked at the long-range wx outlook.  Looks like a cold front will shove its way down this way early next week.  Lows in the mid-50s, highs in the mid-70s.  Dew points are projected to be in the 50s.  Be still my beating heart but is fall coming a lil early this year?

  9. TNBF tourney on Boone for 7/22 has been cancelled. Please see the tourney forum for more info. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.

  10. Cant wait til October......

      Amen brother. Best birthday in a long time. Great to see some patriotism in our land again. 

  12. You can't keep the ground from shaking. No matter how hard you try

    You can't keep the sunsets from fading. You gotta treat your life like jumping off a rope swing, baby, cause the whole thing is really just a shot in the dark.....

  13. May 27 tourney on Ft Pat has been rescheduled to Oct 7 on Watauga. See tourney forum for more details.

  14. Fake news media is a real thing......fantasy vs fact can be muddled & spewed as news anywhere. Geez.

      It's everywhere. Not just big media outlets but social sites too

  15. Tourney committee is making some changes to the 2017 TNBF tourney schedule. Keep an eye on the tourney forum for changes to the May Ft Pat tourney......

      I was wondering if this one was going to move around. Memorial weekend on Patrick Henry......

      For some unknown reason I like fishing the Ft. Pat tournament.  Never catch a fish there, but something draws me back.

    2. Mountainman

      Mountainman

      Never know what weather you'll get on memorial day here.....last year (or year before....memory sucks) it was rainy & 65 degrees.

    3. Peck

      True true....If you change the date, keep it a day tx.

      Well ran tourney guys, as always

  17. I'll make someone a killer deal on a great boat. Can't beat the ride quality in Phoenix and this ones loaded to the gills.

    1. SteveHTN

      SteveHTN

      Guarantee no one will find a better boat  for the price. It's a sweet a** ride and been well cared for. 

  18. Starting to know the back of the woodshed like my own hands. Can't catch a break or a stupid fish

      That lake has been all over the last 6 months. Hopefully you're done with that woodshed come Douglas.

      No doubt it's a beautiful lake & a great fishery, it's just sucked every time I've gone down there.

      It can be the bomb or it can be bust. But there are definitely good areas & bad. Since the alewives & zebra mussels took over, the Lm have been getting bigger, but harder to catch. 

    4. trackertxw175

      trackertxw175

      Caught a lm up there during a New Years Eve TX and could see it like 30-40 fow. Couldn't believe how clear the water was.

  20. Man.....behind the wood shed again this week. On a roll to start 2017!

    1. trackertxw175

      trackertxw175

      Looking at the results I'm guessing the rig bite was on

    2. Mountainman

      You would be correct, sir.

  21. Got taken behind the wood shed on Cherokee today. Shew.

      One of those days when you struggle to put 5 keepers in the boat, only to get to the weigh in & find out that 17 lbs probably won't get a check. Makes you wanna sell your stuff & take up knitting or basket weaving.

      That lake has been unforgiving lately. All of my usual spots have been dry as a martini the past 6 months. 

  22. Big thanks to everyone who fished our trail this year. We had a great year & wrapped it up with a great, albeit chilly, finale. Can't wait til next year!

  23. Big thanks to everyone who had come out to fish with us this tourney year. Thanks to the tourney committee, with special thanks to Shannon, Wes & Chris Hopson for all your extra efforts to make these tourneys run smoothly. Can't wait til next year!!

  24. Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow fishermen & your families.
