  1. I have been helping Nathan age and track their growth rates. A few of those 1998 otoliths came from me. What is even more impressive than those fish living 20+ years is the average growth rate of the ones they are stocking now is 3-4 lbs a year! The 2013 fish are averaging 26-29 lbs right now. Would like to add that this very rough data of what i am seeing in my catches. MDC should release their findings after their study is complete and it will be a lot more accurate.
  2. Yeah, that road launch is out of play for me at this level. Figured the levels should be getting pretty close for shadow rock. When i was launching of the road up in Swan creek, the level was 688ish and my graph showed 8 ft deep as i idled over the road at the concrete bridge in Swan creek.
  3. Is shadow rock ramp open?

    Shad

    Anyone know if there are any licensed bait dealers selling shad in the hot springs area?

    Shad

    So what are the guides doing at ouachita? There is no shad in that lake. They used to go to Oklahoma or the Arkansas river to get bait?
  7. That's awesome footage! They really are beautiful fish.
  8. Well, I accepted the challenge of finding them elsewhere and luckily succeeded. Completely different end of the lake and they were bruisers. Biggest was 13.2 on the digital scale, smallest was 10.6
  9. All the ramps are great. Locations just vary depending on the time of year and what you are fishing for. Crappie are on the banks everywhere and biting great right now.
  10. These are from a couple of days ago. They are starting to do their top water thing. I won't divulge exact spots, but just cruise until you see 8 boats with 5-6 people each in overalls. They have been following my boat since they crowded me at the weir. You might as well just butt in as they have no problem doing it to me or anyone else. As soon as anyone catches a hybrid, they will move to within 20 ft of you and cast lures within 3 ft of your boat. I don't think they are trying to be rude, I think it is just not considered rude in their culture? Better find them quick. The last 2 spots they d

  12. Back in coves. Probably close to the bank right now. Or look for them flipping on the surface. Cut bluegill and creek chubs will work better than livers.
  13. For sure the catalog outlet. If they have whatever you're looking for in there, it will be very hard to find it cheaper anywhere else.
  14. Correct and correct. You could also launch at Sapps and head down towards Avery
  15. I would get cut shad, launch at Avery, up the pomme arm, and fish current seams (eddies) on the inside bends of sharp corners. We caught several slots and a 39 lber yesterday afternoon/ evening.
