  1. From what i have pieced together I think the power pool level was 654 until 2017-18 and then changed by the Corps to 659 or 660. This website is a really good graphic record of the lake levels on a daily basis from 2016 til now. Check it out http://bullshoals.uslakes.info/Level/ To get 2016-2018 data just click on that year's box below the graph. Then use your mouse to slide across it to get the date you're looking for
  2. Good catch, you're right. And high water does not seem to be as much a "fluke" anymore
  3. Thanks for the testimony on Lakewoods. In talking to them on the phone they sound like the kind of people you "want to get to know" I've read some good reports on this Forum regarding Buck Creek as well as 3 & 5 fingers, not to mention the 2 sugarloafs. Most of that info came from 2008-2014 time frame though. Like you said flukes worked well back then but now ???? Maybe COVID changed the pattern & bait selection. HA!!! Anyway thanks for the input
  4. Sent him a PM but no response. His website is for sale, he hasn't been active on his facebook page or his Linkedin one since 2017 either. Kinda like he dropped off the face of the earth. Hope nothing serious happened to him. Anyway thanks for the recommendation. I'll keep looking for help
  5. thanks, what was his forum name? i don't know how to look him up by his full name. There's probably a way but i'm a dummie on most of this stuff
  6. I posted this on Upper Bull Shoals Forum back in December but thought I would add it to this Forum because I know there are members that don’t read both. If I’m being too redundant just delete the post, I’ll understand. I've lived and fished in Missouri for over 40 years and am ashamed to admit I've never been on Bull Shoals. I fish all over the state TR, Lake O, Pomme, Stockton, Mark Twain, and I live on Lake St. Louis (near Wentzville) Anyway the bass club I started in 1985 has finally given up on KY Lake and we are looking to find a replacement for it. Our club is small, our tournament
  7. Thanks, my problem is I have only 1 Navionics card which I use at my console and upfront I have a Lakemaster Card and that's the one that worries me about coverage.
  8. So now a new question regarding maps. I have Humminbirds on my Cat and use both Navionics and Lakemaster maps but. I believe my Navionics South Card covers Arkansas but my Lakemaster Great Plains V 5.0 only goes to the Missouri Border. Unfortunately my boats in storage so I can't get to it to fireup the units and see if Bull Shoals is included. I saw the Lakemastewr V 6.0 Great Plains Card covers Bull Shoals or I can get a Mid-South card, but before I spring for another $100 card can anyone tell me if my older version already does the job. Also for those in my club that have Lowrance and Garm
  9. OK, I pulled an audible and made a major change to location for our April Tournament. We are going to launch out of Buck Creek Area and leave Howard Creek and the dam!!!! I was always nervous about fishing so close to the dam. It limits the directions you can go and type of water to fish. After reading this Forum and Lower BS I heard about Lakewoods Resort up near Protem. After talking to the owners I felt like their place and the "mid Lake" Area fit our clubs needs better, SOOOOOOO we're off to fish a different places. I don't expect to see stained water (unless it rains alot, but f
  10. Thanks, that time of the year protection from North Wind is a good plan, even though "the wind is your friend"
  11. Hey, that's encouraging info, thanks. I have heard from other people and other reports that the fish on Bull Shoals like "small pockets" "bluff cuts" etc.. To me that means little niches or cuts in a bank that are 1 or 2 boat lengths deep rather than a pocket 50-100 yds long and they can be on either main lake or in the creek arms. Have i got that right?
  12. Thanks for help I'm trying to gather enough info to pass along to the club members so they "all" have a good experience on the lake. It's our 1st venture this far out, since Ky Lake has gone dry. We have a mix of fishing styles in the group. 2 or 3 like topwater and power fishing, 5 or 6 are finesse prone with wacky, shakey and Nedrigs in their arsenal as well as jigs & carolina rigging and 1 or 2 fish crankbaits or spinnerbaits. The biggest issue will be finding enough "Off color" water for at least half the guys. We fished Table Rock for 5 years out of Aunts Creek in late March and
  13. Thanks for the tips. I'll certainly contact you sometime mid April. We're fishing the last wee of that month.
  14. Got sidelined with Grandkids over Xmas. Back on the searchs now I have "cut & pasted' 54 pages of "data" on April/May reports from from Upper and Lower Bull Shoals. They're in a word document. Now I start back thru them and save the "nuggets" of what, when, and where. That'll get me a better idea of what baits on what days at what depth and where on the lake I should look. That's usually takes more than one pass thru. When i get something down to a manageable size (2 or 3 pages) i'll send you a PM with that data , and if you would, tell me whether I'm off base or not. Thanks
  15. Thanks for the tip on "Lower" data. I'll get busy on it As far as White River Border Lakes Permits, I did look into them and the guys that aren't old enough to get by without a license will be using that permit vs an Ark Out of state License. Thanks for the suggestion. Since I'm an OLF at 74 I don't need a license in Mo. and Ark. reciprocates as long as I'm fishing Border Waters, so i get a freebee. Probably the 1st thing I ever got free from a government agency other than a plane trip ticket to Nam.
