  1. Just because you can't use them on your lake doesn't mean they are useless. I take a trip to fish up north, Minnesota or Wisconsin, every year and I wish I had them every time. They have a use and when you need them I am sure they are great. Similar to spot lock trolling motors. They are a $1200 luxury add on to a $800 trolling motor, but once you have one you will not go with out.
  2. Here is the home page for the Missouri Water Patrol Regata permits. Search lake, month, year and you can find any tournament that was given a permit. https://www.mshp.dps.missouri.gov/WP04Web/app/searchRegattaWeb?action=Search+Again Good Luck
  3. Are there any public fish cleaning stations on the lake? When I go crappie fishing I usually go down for the weekend and stay at a resort and use their facilities. For those of you who go for the day, where do you clean your fish?
  4. I saw that one too, it is interesting to watch him with a jerkbait in his hand. I think the filming of that video is a couple of years old though, he has a motorguide on his boat and he announced that he switched to Minn Kota in Jan of last year. Kind of weird, but I am always curious of when these shows are filmed.
  5. It must be spreading. I saw one on LOZ the other weekend too.
  6. There prices are about the same at the other top brands.
  7. I recommend Charlies at Rock Lane. It is close to you with good food and a good bar. I believe they have an all you can eat ribs and catfish on Fridays.
  8. I was getting mid 40's for a water temp.
  9. Came in Friday to thunderstorms and tornado sirens and woke up to low 40's and wind Saturday. Went out looking for some crappie but didn't have much luck. We started off targeting shallow per the reports from last week and was rewarded with several nice spotted bass. They really helped make the day. Caught them on crappie jigs in less than 4' of water. We had another larger bass hooked but came off. With no luck on the crappie shallow we moved out a little deeper. We only caught a handful and all of them were on jigs. The ones we caught were in 8-12', I think the cold may have moved the out deeper. The wind and cold forced us to head back in without a limit. Hoping for a better outing in a couple weeks.

  11. I jumped on this deal for my daughter when they had smaller sizes. This is going to be one of here Christmas presents. good luck http://www.cabelas.com/product/HERTERS-ROARING-FORKS-LUG-SOLE-WADERS/1833026.uts?slotId=0
  12. I fished both Sat and Sun with my wife. We were in the Toyota tournament and had a wonderful time. This was my second year at this event and we talked some friends to come down since they just purchased a new toyota. They will be back every year too. As far as the fishing, it was very tough to put patterns together. We caught fish on everything from jigs in 20' to topwater up shallow. We were one of the several boats with 1 keeper on the ned. I lost one that jumped and spit my jig that looked like a keeper and my wife had a solid fish break her line while fishing the ned. While I caught fish on several different lures, my wife caught more fish than me and she threw the ned most of the weekend. I know that there are several posts in this thread about the amount of boats on the lake lately, I just wanted to say that the lake felt more empty this weekend than most of the times I have been on it. Never did I pull up to an area and see more than a couple boats even in the cove. I don't think I was even close enough to talk to anyone in another boat while fishing all weekend, I fished from the dam to past long creek marina. Don't worry about what how many regatta permits are on the web page, just go out and enjoy the wonderful resource that is Table Rock Lake.
  13. I talked with Hank Parker over this summer about line and he said that he hates Vanish because it will break for no reason. It will work great at times and then break without any abrasion. He only uses Trilene 100% Floro, both products are made by Berkley and he is sponsored by Berkley, so take that for what it is worth. Like Nitroman said, there are a lot of other choices out there.
  14. Total Regatta Permitted days issued by the Water Patrol for Table Rock April - 91 May - 63 June - 70 July - 55 Aug - 51 Sept - 63 Oct - 39 I think it looks like the lake will be pretty open this month, compared to the rest of the year.
