  1. There has been a 180 acre farm for sale on 1774 over looking Price Branch. I wonder if this is the landowner we are discussing. Years ago I was able to drive into the back of Googer off of Y highway ( county rd 131) but the last time I tried that road was blocked (I believe the corp quit maintaining that road)

    A quickie

    Nicely done. Did you fish towards Turkey Creek? I was wondering if some of the timber out in the middle of the lake in that area had started showing. I know the timber around the island is visible, but there's some pretty good sized trees that are scattered in the main lake and four or five that sit smack dab in the middle of Turkey Creek.
  3. Is this Burger and Fries?
  4. The draw down has been very consistent for the last two weeks except for that last deluge of rain. Like clockwork the drawdown is currently 3" a day
  5. I was surprised last week. it's a pretty good launch. Saturday the lot was full. Fishing has been poor for me. I know what you mean about the height on some courtesy docks. The one at the town of Stockton was really high the last time I was there about a week ago.
  6. I like ken's in Arcola, especially the catfish. I have heard that Grandmas place north of Jerrico Springs is a real good place, but they are only open on Friday nights and maybe a couple more evenings during the week. I plan to try and find it next time at the lake.
  7. That duplicated our night, although a few boats came in with multiple fish, just nothing real big. Maybe its an anomaly, but I think especially after dark with all the water that poured into the lake and decaying vegetation there is an oxygen depletion. I would venture a guess that the majority of fish were caught before 9.
  8. I only have one report. A guy was putting his pontoon in Friday night at Cedar Ridge to put out lights. He said he had been out a couple days before and had three crappie and some small white bass from 9:00-2:30 using minnows. He was tying to a bridge pier.
  9. Bagnell Dam is pouring out water and Truman seems to be responding. Maybe Stockton's time is on the horizon.
  10. The best ramp is Cedar Ridge south. The courtesy dock is usable and the ramp is steep enough to float a boat.
  11. May be a false alarm, but the lake has come down about an inch since midnight.
  12. They told me 1973 was the record. I assume some of the marinas were not in full operation. I think the next highest was in the early nineties, maybe 1992
  13. We had a good trip Wednesday eve, not as good as yours. We were fishing water with a little color and the depth 12-14' also. The few females we caught looked to be assimilating their eggs.
  14. The majority of fish have spawned out. The post spawn light fishing is really good.
  15. I am hoping you didn't go out in a boat yesterday eve. I was in a protected place in maze creek yesterday eve and didn't realize the main lake had gotten so rough I have a pretty stable boat, but it was tested to the hilt bashing into 3 and 4 ft. rollers going north to State park marina. The real excitement started when I tried to make the turn into the marina at the floating sea walls It looked like something you would see on the ocean with the waves battering over the walls sending spray 20' in the air. got soaked but feel extremely lucky. .
