Good morning all. New member here from Central Ill. My Name Doug, I have been in this area for about 2 years, prior to that spent 5 years in Tampa Fl, 1 Year in Atlanta Ga and 21 years throughout the pacific (Navy) Was born in Iowa and raised in Prairie du Chien WI. I am obsessed with Fishing. Specifically smallmouths. I primarily fish spinning gear but intend to work on baitcasters this year, and will focus on jig fishing. Unfortunately I am shore bound but not letting that keep me from the water.
I see some folks here from another site I frequent. Found my way here via Gotstafish's website links.

Where you at and what is your home lake? I live on the Lake of the Ozarks in central MO.

Welcome to the bassholes Doug.
welcome aboard.I am from the braidwood area let us know where at in central I bet we'll share some of the same water this year.Also you come up a little north and I can put you on some smallies
Welcome to the site.

I wish Florida had some Smallmouth bass. One of the rivers in the panhandle near Pensacola is actually cold enough year round to easily support Smallmouth as well as Brown Trout. I thought about putting some of those in there once ;) just teasing. It would be sweet though.
Welcome to the party!!! :cheers: Dave
Welcome Dug! I know you'll enjoy your stay!! :fishing01:
