  1. The my knowledge from researching the subject for a Facebook thread. You only have to register it if it's gas powered. Electric motors/ man powered craft under 16ft were exempt. But I would consult a licensing office to double check.
  2. Even if Powersite doesn't generate, it will come over the top.
  3. It looks to be clearing up as of yesterday.
  4. With the dam maintaining 62k flow, I would fish the coves and creek arms. It's still a pretty swift flow in the main channel and probably wouldn't do any good while drifting at 10+ mph.lol
  5. Wayne at Ozarks Extreme Outdoors might be able to help. He's our fly tying guy there. Here's the store number if you want to call and see if he's available. 14172720389
  6. Actual moving water. I fish creek "arms" in the Dam area all the time. The James is actually the closest to me, but I'm sure most fish will be sore lipped from the Bronzefest tournament on the 7th. So I'm not interested in the James.
  7. I'll be taking a personal vacation while the wife and baby boy are in California for over a week. I'm planning on the May 12-14 weekend and thought about hitting a creek or river on the east side near Shell Knob, and I've never fished anywhere in that area. Any one have a decent stretch with good fishing they would recommend?
  8. I don't know where George lives nor do I have his number, but I'm curious as to what is available.
  9. Here's the Top 10 results from Saturday's tournament. Big bass was a 18.75" Largemouth bass caught by Levi Panting.

  12. I've worn Hoo-rag brand (available at Ozarks Extreme Outdoors) for 3 years now. Winter or summer (I wet it in the summer) and it's done the job. They even help with "wind burn" too, either a windy day in the kayak or blasting down the lake at 60mph in my buddy's Skeeter. They help at night with keeping bugs out of your face too.
  13. Sorry bud, I haven't been down there since September. I had my own "leg weight" preoccupying my time too, at least since Halloween day.lol

  15. The guy that bought it (a tournament angler from Texas) does plan on tossing it a few times, but it will end up in a glass case.
  16. They said big swimbaits didn't work on Table Rock either... Its entertainment from the "Live Entertainment Capital of the World", it's not perfect but it's rolling and should air this summer on the Pursuit Channel I believe.
  17. They've been filming since last August, so lures can be used in their prime season. I'll being filming an episode for a swimbait company out of Louisiana within the next few weeks.
  18. They're from a company in Louisiana called "Category 5". It's one of their Suicide Croakers. I'm testing them out and will be fishing them for the company on a TV show, that will air this summer.
  19. I saw the wind blowing into one of my favorite coves on TR yesterday afternoon and found them stacked in there. I initially threw a single 5" prototype swimbait in the area and had a football shaped spot come from behind and grab the tail, I got excited and pulled it from it and the bait was pulled down the hook. I switched to the A-rig with some smaller baits and on a short cast to check the rig, 3 fish swarmed it and I caught that SM pictured in the middle. Believe it or not, that's a 3 pounder, I had so many layers on that it made it look small.lol The fish were not that deep either, the one fish nearly hit the rig at the surface pulling it out of the water. It was on a bluffy bank, if I were in a boat/kayak I would definitely figure 8 the rig once it's close, that's how I caught 2 of them. I landed 4 and missed 6 in about 30 minutes.
  20. It wasn't so much of a plug as it was a piece of media showing those who might own a action camera that there is a device available that will aid in recovering their entire camera boom/suction cup setup (that the backdoor float doesn't keep afloat). If I was plugging, I would have included the website and pricing... otherwise PM me for those details.
  21. Here's a review of a retrieval device from a company I represent called Savur Outdoors. This one replaces the "long" screw on action camera mounts.
  22. Post kill is a 8.69lbs LM on a River2Sea S-waver 200, March 2014, in the Dam area. Pre-fish kill, my dad did alot of the lunker catching, most of the bigger LM were in the 6lbs range, and SM/Spots were in the 4's / low 5's. I have seen Spots in the 5lbs+ range, unfortunately they were trying to annihilate my biggest baits by bull nosing them at the surface, in the spring. It was like watching Shark Week when they tow around the seal decoy. The biggest spot I saw at that time, came out of the water and flipped over the bait, it had to be at least 22" long.
  23. In areas where there's already alot of "noise" in the water, there's really no stealth advantage. But in shallow areas, 15ft or less, in the back of coves, rivers, and ponds, I would say there might be an advantage. I know some the west coast big bass hunters will use sonar to locate fish, but once they find them, they turn it completely off. And on calmer days, they turn their trolling motor speed down too (higher speed, more water turbulence on blade startup/electronic noise) and creep into spots. With a kayak, all the fish will hear is splashing, which typically they are used to hearing. Plus the gas, maintenance and insurance bills are much cheaper with a kayak than a bass boat.lol
