Floated a 4mi section of river today in SW MO with my dad. It was his 75th B-day so I decided to take him on a fishin-float trip stead of the usual birthday card...

We got a late start but managed to get on the river around 9am and fished till about 2pm. Total catch & release was around 25-30 smallmouth/LMB. Most we're in the 12-14" range which is typical of this type of creek, but I was really surprised to see some LMB in the 15"+ range in some of the deeper holes. Of all the fish caught we probably missed twice that many or more. Everything was caught on 5" natural colored stick baits. We must have went through two dozen baits with all the smaller dinks attacking these baits and tearin them up...

Anyways, great day to be on the water and spend some time with the ol man....
