MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
- During these winter months, many lakes levels are down exposing
prime fish holding structures. Good time to do a little
GPS Scouting

- Here are some tips for winter fishing Go Vertical for Cold Water Fishing

- With winter upon us, anglers must start thinking of getting our equipment ready for storage
till that first fishing day next spring. This could include cleaning or
making repairs on a reel, sharpening hooks or just organizing gear.
Last month we shared tips on How To Repair Cracks and Holes in Cork Fishing Rod Grips.
This month we have: How to change Rod Tip or Repair Broken Fishing Rod Tips
* As a reminder, Do Not over heat rod as it will weaken it..!

** Support our local Bait Shops to assure they will be there when we need them for fresh,
lively baits and current fishing info or advice as well as the latest tackle..!
  - Just a Thought..  

* Looking to save some money on your next fishing trip?
Make sure to browse timeshare resales for sale and rent by owner.
Timeshare resales that are for sale and rent by owner are
typically 70% off the price you´d pay at a resort or vacation home directly.
There are several timeshare resales available for rent around the Lake of the Ozarks.

Fisherman´s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,
I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.

The angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus"
