2014 Fall Strip Pitt Classic


fishing user avatarkanasbassfisher08 reply : 

West Mineral Mined Wildlife Strip Pits are full of bass waiting to get caught by us! Im wanting to have a get together down there shooting around Oct. 4&5 thats a sat. sun. trip come for one day or two it will be a blast. there are cabins for rent. ill find the details on prices and stuff just wanted to start sparking some interest!!!  its great for jon boats or buddy bass boats and even full size bass boats thats what i have and no problem putting it on most of the pits. alot of pitts down there have boat ramps. some gravel roads but most of the way is paved roads.

Im up for anything


fishing user avatarDoc-Drew reply : 

I'd be up for this. How is camping down there? I have been wanting to go there ever since I moved to KC but have never gotten aroud to it. Chris you mentioned you are taking a bass boat down there. Do most of the pits not have a good ramp? Another thing, since there are a billion pits down there, would we be limited to a certain area or would all be fair game?


fishing user avatarkanasbassfisher08 reply : 

ok so most of the ramps are gravle and concrete but some have drop offs at the end! are they great some are and the 10 i recommend are in my opinion are the best but i would allow you to fish any of them and ill have maps for every boat of all the pits and ill have them marked which 10 i like and they are all labeled weather they have a ramp or not and as far as caming i know of a couple with camping but i almost think its free game if you tent camp ill check into that too but the cabins are a decent deal. im not doing this in sub for what blue has this is just another fun get together and who ever can make it great and if not ill fish im just going down that weekend and fishing and the more the marrier

i know there is camping at big brutus for sure not far away but ill still do some checking on the cabins and tent camping


fishing user avatarjrsmith_80 reply : 

I was down there over the weekend and the cabins are very nice. The Mine 19 cabin is were I stayed, it has a kitchen, one bathroom and one bedroom. It will sleep 6 guys fairly comfortably but sharing one bathroom sucks. Kitchens have a fridge, stove, microwave, toaster and coffee maker.

The fishing was was excellent on most ponds, on one of the ponds that I fished with three other guys, we all caught fish and not one fish was under 15 inches.

Big boats may have a problem getting on the water as all the boat ramps are an "enter at your own risk" type of deal. Be very careful to pay attention to the end of the ramps, once they end it's a nice drop to the bottom.

Tent camping is free!!

At the cabins there is.


fishing user avatarkanasbassfisher08 reply : 

Thanks jrsmith for all the info any prices to go off of for one cabin and any info on how to reserve them? That would be much appreciated.


fishing user avatarjrsmith_80 reply : 

I believe they are 70 bucks a night and you have to rent Friday night and Saturday night together to get the weekend, during the week you can rent for just one night. You can go to the KDWP website and click on reservations to reserve them. The one we stayed at was named "Mine 19," I cat for the life of me remember the name of the other cabin but they are about 100 yards apart. Both cabins also have a grill, picnic table and fire pit.

There is also plenty of power to charge the boat batteries.


fishing user avatarjrsmith_80 reply : 

One thing I might add is there is NOT a maid service. You are required to take bedding, towels and the all important TOILET PAPER!! Some one goes to check the place out after you leave for stolen or broken items but the renter is requires to clean up after themselves before they check out.

I also know that you need to allow plenty of time to make reservations, I was told the weekends fill up pretty quick.

I sure wish I could go with you guys but my wife and I have reservations to go down there in the middle of September so going again in October is not an option.

If you guys have any questions please don't hesitate to ask as it's all still fresh in my head.


fishing user avatarKC Jedi reply : 

I am certainly interested in this. Would like to sign team 'Cut Bait' up for the tourney! Should we just make reservations on our own?


fishing user avatarkanasbassfisher08 reply : 

ill check this week and see if its open and see what i have to do to reserve it

You can camp anywhere by any of the pits for free from my understanding. Just no electricity to charge your batteries with. 


fishing user avatarhalfpint33 reply : 

There is 2 camp grounds in Columbus which is a few minutes from most pits.Also if ya plan on fishing the trout pit which is where the cabins are at ya have to have a trout stamp as well as regular fishing liscence.

I may be in on this with my brother in law.We both live in Columbus so we dont have to travel.


fishing user avatargardnerjigman reply : 

My dad's house is up for people crashing there. Lives in the country ( but it's a chip and seal road) in farlington. Plenty of power sources and room for boat parking and charging. Bring your sleeping bags and we can all save some $$$


fishing user avatarkanasbassfisher08 reply : 

looks like that is the plan guys 


fishing user avatarjrsmith_80 reply : 

I just got home from the strip pits today. Man was the fishing tough! I'm sure the cold front didn't help at all. I didn't catch a lot of fish but the ones I did catch were decent. I only fished the trout pond as I was with my wife and she really didn't care to fish a lot so we just stayed near the cabin. Hope you all have fun fishing there. According to the local the state record bass lives in the trout pond, I sure the heck didn't see him! They stock the trout pond with trout the first weekend in October so the bass fishing ought to be good with the big ones chasing those little trout.

We saw one the first time I was ever on the trout pond that I still believe was 100% for sure a state record class fish. The number of fish in the 5-7 pound range we saw that day was incredible, they just wouldn't eat anything we threw at them. 


fishing user avatarkanasbassfisher08 reply : 

yeah man thanks for the update and im sure fish will be plentiful this fall once they acclimate to this crazy weather!


fishing user avatarkanasbassfisher08 reply : 

Ok guys just a couple days left who's in gonna be a good weekend for fishing


fishing user avatarhalfpint33 reply : 

I may be able to make it but the fishing just plain sucks at the pits this year.I have talked to guys who have fished them for years and they say this is one of the roughest years they have saw for bass fishing.I have been on vacation all this week and fished most everyday at the ts and have only caught basically bait.If others are in I am sure I can go.But if no one else is I will stay home and pkay in the shop all weekend.
