Kc Spring Get Together

Recommended Posts

Going to get this started so all our discussion about it doesn't get lost in the other thread.

 

First is the proposed 1 day deal in March. I think we have 2 real options, 1 Melvern and 2 Lake Shawnee. I don't think that Wyco is a real option because of the price of the boat/fish/trout permit. I think if we do Melvern it should be the end of March, if we do Shawnee it should be more mid-March so there will be more fish still in the lake. I think at Melvern you obviously have the potential to have another cold spring like last year where it could be really tough at Melvern. Shawnee as long as it's thawed the trout should be biting. I'm thinking we just take a vote again like last year for anyone wanting to be there, either post up your vote or send me a PM so I can tally them up. I'm going to put mine in for Lake Shawnee, maybe like March 15th?

 

Melvern-4

Shawnee-5

 

Second is the 2 day deal. My thinking with this is for us to go somewhere that is too far to do a single day trip. I think we should go somewhere with camping or hotels so everyone has the option to stay where they'd like. Like always, the main goal is for everyone to have fun and catch fish, which I think should be taking into consideration into where we go. I think having some stuff other than fishing to do would be a plus for anyone wanting to bring the family along as well. I think the 31st of May/1st of June was the weekend that was working the best for everyone. Again, like last year I think we should vote on it so everyone gets a say in it. I'll make a list of some lakes and if anyone wants to add any to the list just let me know. I'm going to put mine in for Grand Lake :)

 

Grand-6 1/2

Table Rock-1 1/2

Stockton

LOZ

Bull Shoals

Melvern

Milford

Beaver

Hazel Creek

Mozingo

Wilson

Melvern and no vote cause I won't be able to go

 

It'll all be worth it after the little one gets here, pretty awesome experience.

Well depending on how many people show up and if Jon's family allows us stay at their cabins, there may be room for them to stay there. Other than that, the city of Grove is the best option of places to stay. There's quite a few options close by that are reasonably priced. There's also Honey Creek State Park that has camping for a cheaper option.

Does the OK DNR have cabins like how KDWPT does at the bigger lakes? Ive looked at cabins at various places on Grand, like Pine Lodge, 158/night for a 4-5 person cabin in the woods, not lake front. Kinda steep for what I was thinking.

I vote for Melvern and as for the 2-day, I really can't say. Never fished any of the lakes other than Melvern and Milford.

Getting to fish a new lake is part of the fun I'd think :)

 

I've fished all of them at least once so any questions you or anyone has about them I'll do my best to answer from my first hand experience.

I'm cheering for the Broncos, and a Manning retirement  :eyebrows:  He named 2 lakes so I split his vote, even my country educated self can do that math  :laugh5:  Now if we get guys wanting to give 3/32 of their vote to one lake and 5/16 to another and stuff like that we're screwed  :cut:

Check out Longs resort in grove. We used to stay there wen I was a kid and my dad stayed a few years ago. It's a decent place with cabins, covered crappie dock and a boat ramp and the office was a small marina geared towards the crappie guys.

My x girlfriends parents have a house with a ski boat, bass boat and jet skis so I've spent lots of time on that lake my whole life I just hope that it doesn't skunk me again.

Honestly if anyone is thinking of making this the family vacation you may want to vote rock and take the fan to Branson it would give them something to do and places to eat

Especially if it rains

Pretty sure I caught my first fish of the trip when we were down there for the Classic out from under Long's Resorts Dock. We caught quite a few fish around that area.

I'm not sure if we have anyone planning on bringing their whole families with them? I know there's a couple guys planning on bringing their sons to fish with them but that's all I've heard of?

So I happen to know a guy on the rock who might be able to provide some lodging (and I would imagine he would do it for cheap) if he isn't completely booked up. Just throwing that out there.

 

He even posts here

I've got a free place to stay at on the rock now  :respect-059:
