A WV Fishtacular in the works for Oct...

OK, I thought I'd start this off by describing my standard line at Sweet's Falls: I hit the setup eddy behind the rock at the top. Find the little seam that marks the curl going into Dildo Rock. Peel out and set up my line right where I want to be. Get to the lip of the falls and see the line where ...

Camping in KC area?

Any recommendations for campgrounds or campsites in the KC area? Looking for something within an hour or so drive. Prefer less crowded, but girlfriend prefers reasonable toilet facilities too. :-)

Thanks,
Fish

Great boatball game - we were one person short of having the magic number of 8 for 4 on each team. But we soldiered on - a great group to play with. Anyone feeling the burn today? :) Despite being in KC, Dave apparently chickened out and was a no show. :?: Would have been our eighth boater... We sta...

Cavedave, you're about right on hp. The efficiency of a good propeller pump can be 70%+. For a homemade one, I'd say 50% would be about right. 250 hp diesel engines aren't hard to find or expensive. We could do this... one day, maybe we will.

Man, some of the boatball newbies can really play! The old-as-dirt team was doing a little heavy breathing, but they held their own. (Full disclosure: I don't think I'm any younger than James.) Our team had a definite age advantage - Wahoo can really paddle! It was a great workout and a lot of fun -...

Can anyone post directions on how to get to the dock? I'll be there by 6 - if you can't make it till later, no sweat. We'll play around till 9 or thereabouts.

I have all the stuff except for two "anchors" - anything 10-20 lbs or so that we can tie a rope to will work well. Have a pretty good ball - water polo ball is nicer but we can do without it if needed. I know James and Dave are coming. Looks like I'll get to meet some more good folks this afternoon ...

I've had a design in mind for years like this one. I call it the Big Dumb Pump. Probably would move even more water than this one potentially, but the same idea. Just a big homemade propeller pump with a diesel engine driving it. With a salvage ship propeller, used diesel engine, mountings, and the ...

The First Rule of Boatball: Never talk about boatball! Oh, wait, that's another club I'm involved with... nevermind. I am definitely in for boatball Wed evening at Shawnee Mission Park. Just got back from CO creekin and I was not in top shape at all. Need to build back up to boatball shape so the cr...
