Hello to all viewing the Missouri Board of Crappie.com Threads.

We have talked before about a Fun MO/IL crappie tournament. I was PM from one of the guys on the IL board this week about this subject, "Are you (meaning MO groups) still interested in a match?"

Well we need to find out the answer to that question for ourselves.
If a MO/IL Fun crappie tournament does not pan out what about setting up a MO Fun crappie tournament or tournaments. And then after we decide when and where, post it on IL/KS/IA/AR boards to see if any others would show up. (Thank you Ted great idea) I really believe this maybe the way to go at first.

Lets get everyone's input on the subject please.

When answering if you would like to share you first name and the city your from and the lakes you fish it maybe helpful in the planning.

Hello all, I am interested in having a MO vs IL. Mostly just get a chance to fish other places that I havent had the chance. And to kick the IL guys butts and for some braggin rights. But if we cant get something worked out between each side. I think that we should try to set up 2 or 3 dates. Maybe one this spring, one for the summer, and then in the fall. This way you may not be able to make it to one or two of the events. But you can show up at another, or just show up at all like I hope too.

I will put my vote for LOZ (fall), Truman (summer), and Mark Twain (spring). I am not against fishing any other lake in Missouri.

I would make MTL fall due to possible spring flooding that occurs every other year. It would cancel an event. But other than that good idea.

Well that can happen on pretty much lake, at any time of the year. Look at MT when it came up 12' or so in 2 days last August. No one can predicte mother nature and what she will throw at us.

Don't know how many I could attend, but it sounds like fun. It would be a chance to put a face with the names here . Also are you talking about anyone fishing (wives-friends) or just Crappie.com members.

Last Year we only had 3 boats and we fished LOZ. Had a great time put faces with names over a drink after we were done. The 3 boats were TAE73/CrappieOutlaw, Bugman/girlfreind, Crappiehead/Paul.
If I remeber right TAE73/CrappieOutlaw won with Bugman/girlfreind have biggest fish.

If someone wants to carry the ball this year and get one going I am game. I was disappointed last year as so many talked like they would come and only 3 boats showed. On the other hand it made the first round of drinks cheaper for me.:)

Yes it was alot of fun, it was also nice to put face with a name. Yes it was us that brought in some good fish. I am also like you crappiehead I might be interested in it, but not going to help push it again.

Sorry, I misunderstood the posts from last year. I thought it might be an annual deal or something. I know the problem though of no one showing up to things. I've been trying for 3 weeks to get a few buddies to commit to a trip with Jerry Blake. With everyones schedule the way they are,it probably ain't going to happen.

I want a lake other than LOZ. I want a lake I can pee over the side of the boat and not get the police called.

My sentiments exactly,CH! It feels like I'm fishing on the 50 yard line of the Edward Jones Dome during half-time on LOZ. Give me the natural areas anyday. A lot fewer drunks and dopers to avoid as well.

This time of year there are no drunks or dopers on the water. Even though with the wind yesterday (sunday) sure make the waves as big as 4th of july weekend. First time I have been in 3-4 foot waves.

I would be very interested in fishing with you guys someday but my boat limits where I can fish. It's a good timber boat but when it comes to Lake O, I think I'm better off taking my chances in the Electric Chair! The idea of having more than one meeting would make sense for someone like me with limited boating potentials. Just a thought.

If we do this again this year I will looking for someone to fish with me more than likely. Have a date this next weekend to meet someone who may be willing to fish with me this year. It would be good if she does in case I hook myself her RN Nursing would come in handy. Would also be a plus in case fish are not biting. :D
