Compass for Life - Boy Scouts

Boy Scout Month

For over a century, Boy Scouts of America has developed our future leaders. Once again, Bass Pro Shops is saluting Boy Scouts with a month devoted to helping educate them, raise money, which will benefit our local council, and assist in providing a Compass for Life!

In September, round up your purchases at Bass Pro Shops Altoona during Boy Scouts of America Donation Month. Half of the donations collected will go to the Mid-Iowa Council. The Mid-Iowa Council was formed in 1914 as the Des Moines Council. Several other councils formed and, as scouting and the local area grew, the councils merged, gradually becoming the Mid-Iowa Council in the 1970s.

Do You Know What Is Great About Barr Lake? by Eric Allee

As soon as I turned into the park I was floored by the amount of wildlife I spotted in the short drive to the boat ramp. A few deer with their ears perked up, a coyote with its head barely noticeable peering over the prairie grass at those deer, and a mischievous raccoon digging in the trash. After launching my kayak I felt like I was in the middle of a Wild America scene so much that I could almost hear Marty Stouffer’s voice. I was surrounded by pelicans, cormorants, hawks, and a handful of birds I couldn’t identify without a bird watchers handbook.

Right after launching my kayak I couldn’t believe I was only three miles away from my front Door. # I’ve lived right next to Barr Lake the majority of my adult life and to be honest I’ve never given it a shot. I guess hearing buddies talk about it for years finally piqued my interest enough to check things out myself. Neal Wilkinson owner of Rocky Mountain Adventure Guides drives from Larkspur for Barr’s sometimes amazing walleye fishing. Matt Mascarenas a guide for Tightline Outdoors and park ranger at Barr Lake enjoys the walleye and perch fishing at Barr Lake. Both Neal and Matt are accomplished anglers that wouldn’t waste their time repetitively fishing a location if it wasn’t worth it, or they’re in cahoots and messing with me!

Fifteen minutes after launching I caught my first walleye from Barr Lake. A few hours later I lost count of how many walleye I’d landed and couldn’t believe how na├»ve I’d been to look past Barr for so long. I didn’t catch anything big that first day out on Barr, but I did catch I’d guess 25 walleye in the 13-16 inch range.  I also had a fish come unbuttoned that felt really big… could have been a carp, but then again it could have been a monster walleye! The grueling 4 minute drive home was sweet icing on the cake after an awesome day on the water.

From that point on I’ve been a regular at Barr Lake fishing it multiple times a week. I’ve caught walleye, perch, largemouth bass, crappie, carp, bluegill, and a toad of a wiper. Much like anywhere else fishing at Barr Lake has its ups and downs, but after you learn the lake you can expect to catch a few fish even on a slow day. Last month there was an amazing bite vertically snapping Jigging Raps on top of subtle pieces of structure. I use the biggest jigging raps they make and prefer anything with some flash or chrome to mimic the shad in Barr Lake. As that bite has started to slow down I’ve transitioned to trolling bottom bouncers and Lindy rigs with crawlers and that has kept me on fish. I can’t tell you how fun it is to try new to me techniques out of my kayak! I’m not reinventing the wheel or even changing the tire pressure with how I’m trolling in my kayak, but it’s been a ton of fun so far.

I Have A Dream........

            Memphis Pyramid

Traveling to different parts of the country on vacation has become part of my families plans over the last number of years and we’ve tried to make a point of visiting each of the Bass Pro Shops close to the region we’re visiting.  A few months ago, we finally got the chance to visit the Memphis Pyramid which now houses one of the largest retail shops I’ve ever been in that was totally dedicated to a single company.  Totally “Gobsmacked!” as the Brits would say, is the only word I can possibly use to describe the scope and scale of the place.  I didn’t think it would strike me so profoundly because I’m an employee of the company, but boy was I mistaken.

I visited the store with my wife and two other couples but we became separated within a few short minutes upon entering the doorway because it seemed that everyone picked a different direction to head.  I spotted one of the many aquariums and had to stop and see the fish, while others wondered off into the clothing, sunglasses, or fishing sections.  I really don’t know for sure because I spotted something else of interest the moment I turned from the aquarium glass.  The retail space is amazing, given the amount of equipment but you have to look beyond the items for sale and take in the details of the dioramas, the water features, the freestanding elevator, the Ducks Unlimited Museum, archery and pistol ranges, restaurants, bowling alley, snack shop, Big Cedar Lodge, and much, much more.  My absolute favorite is the waterways seeming to surround the retail space.  They’re filled with all manner of fish including paddlefish, sturgeon, alligator gar, stripers, bowfin, catfish, rainbow trout, and a whole bunch more.  It seemed like another new one popped up right when I thought there couldn’t be any more.  Awe inspiring is a good way to put it.  And imagine, one guy started the whole thing.  Did Johnny Morris dream of owning a pyramid when he was younger and everything he did to this point was a step towards achieving this goal? 

I know the pyramid wasn’t originally designed to house an outdoors equipment mega-retailer but you’d never know that it wasn’t built to Johnny’s specifications.  The interior has been masterfully camouflaged and decorated to give the impression of being in the wilderness, not a store.  It’s difficult to get a true feeling of the scope from any one location and pictures just don’t do it justice so just take your time and wander around to your hearts content.  Please remember to breathe and take a time out if you need to.

The Memphis pyramid is an awesome place and I highly recommend that everyone put it on their list of places to visit around the Memphis area.  It’s unlikely that I’ll get a chance to visit the actual Pyramids of Giza but I’m glad to have been able to spend some time visiting ours in Memphis.  I don’t pretend that ours was built by aliens like the ones in Egypt, but in its current rendition, it was surely built by a man with a dream.

P.S. Sorry for the alien joke.  I was watching “Close Encounters Of the Third Kind” while writing this.

Fish Food Comes In Many Flavors

John's Lake Hex​Fly fishing can be quite a challenge if you just take a look at casting and presentation by itself but the one thing that does give us an advantage over other types of fishing is the astounding variety of fly patterns at our disposal and our ability to imitate just about any food item possible.  We’re sure to be able to find something that’s on the dinner menu of the local waters, no matter what the fish might be eating.  Be it a fish, frog, lizard, damsel fly, crab, shrimp, a Hexagenia Limbata Mayfly like the one shown to the right, or a berry that dropped off the mulberry tree along the shoreline, there’s a fly out there to imitate it.  You just have to figure out what’s going to work.

I was recently fishing on John’s Lake in west Orlando and finally got a chance to see a hatch of what local fishermen have been telling me about for years.  A hatch of mayflies had occurred and just about every surface in the parking lot had a few of these beauty’s resting in preparation for their mating time.  I’d heard of these occurrences but had never actually experienced one first hand.  Folks come in to the shop each year looking for mayflies and we show them a variety of types ranging from the smaller Blue Winged Olives to the giant Adult Hex as they tell stories of bass and panfish swimming across the surface with their wide open, inhaling bugs as fast as they can.  These anglers normally chose the larger of the two, making me wonder what they’ve been drinking.  Now I know what flavor Kool Aid they’re sipping and I’d gladly join in.

As I’ve said in other posts (Hotdogs, Hamburgers, and Hatch Charts) fish know what’s on the menu and you, the angler, better be throwing something close to what their looking for, or luck won’t be turning in your favor. Many of these hatches occur for such a limited time that hitting it right can be quite a challenge.  Baitfish availability isn’t normally that specific, but can be limited to a particular season be it spring, summer, fall, or winter.  Shrimp are a prime example of a prey item that’s available during a particular season, so throwing imitations at the right time of year is an obvious necessity.  Your success rate will drastically increase once you’ve got the pattern figured out as it repeats year, after year, after year.

Florida anglers are lucky in the sense that we’ve got so much food for the fish to chose from, but on the other hand, why would they eat a piece of metal, fur, feather, or plastic on the end of a fishing line when they’ve got so much food to chose from.  We need to work doubly hard to ensure we’re matching the hatch when there is one, as was the case a few weeks ago, and throwing somewhat generic bait patterns when there’s nothing special going on.  So do a little research, determine the flavor of the week, and stock your boxes accordingly to maximize your chances of success.

Keeping Up With Cast Iron

.

There are special and specific ways to keep up with maintenance of Cast Iron Cookware.

Seasoning -

Is the process of treating the surface of Cast Iron with a stick-resistant coating formed from polymerized fat and oil on the surface.

Cleaning

For best results on cleaning your cast iron, rinse the pan with hot water immediately after cooking. If you need to remove burned-on food, scrub coarse salt, and a nonmetal brush to prevent the nonstick surface to dissipate; for rougher messes you can use mild dish soap and a scraper to get a deeper clean. If the pan gets a sticky coating normally is a sign of over seasoning of your cast iron a quick fix to help reduce is to rub with coarse salt and a dry brush to help remove access oil from your pan. If your cast iron starts to develop rust over time, scrub it with steel wool and mild dish soap. After scrubbing dry the pay thoroughly and use your favorite oil pour on to pay and evenly distribute with a lent free towel. When storing your cast iron put a paper towel on top to prevent dust from getting on it and store in a dry location.

Restoring rusty cast iron

  • Scrub thoroughly with a steel wool brush until all rust is gone
  • Wash with a no metal brush to get rid of excess rust
  • Apply a small amount of mild dish soap and clean thoroughly
  • Wipe dry the fully apply with oil throughout the pan covering every area
  •  Set oven 350° place upside down and bake for 1 hour
  • Let cool in oven

Now you have a fully restored cast iron pan

Your shins will thank me!

At the 2016 ICAST show this year there was a lot of press on Gator Guards “NEW” product – The Hitch Guard. Sue and Scott Smith owners of Gator Guards make several products to protect your boat. They have created a new personal favorite of mine.

gator guard

It’s happened to just about all of us. You’re walking around you’re the back of your truck and bang! Suddenly a severe pain comes from your shin striking into the trailer hitch mount. Gator Guards recently came out with a simple fix to painful incident. The Hitch Guard is a full-coverage that goes around the hitch, by using an automotive-grade polymer cover for single hitches. It stays soft from minus-70 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. It has low-profile design which allows for unrestricted use of trailers and equipment attaching to your pull vehicle. It’s very simple to install, slide the Hitch Guard onto the existing trailer hitch and secure with an include zip tie. I promise it is instant shin protection! Your shins will thank you the next time you accidentally bump into your trailer hitch…
