  2. Still for sale. Cold weather doesn't inspire buyers.
  3. Think I'll CL it in about three weeks, depending on weather, unless someone on here is interested.
  4. What's the best month to sell a rig? March?
  5. Thanks for the nice comment, fishinwrench. Yes, that motor is a classic. I simply haven't been using the rig enough to justify keeping it. It's taking up garage space. It's too nice a rig to leave outside even under cover, IMO. I'm going to wait a month or so before putting it on CL. Hopefully, I can sell it here to some avid fisherman who will have it out every week. $4k firm.
  6. Because it's such a pristine rig for its age, plus the upgrades I've done, I'm asking 4K firm.
  7. Yes, I need to sell it...not using it enough to justify having it in the garage.
  8. Pretty much have to sell it as a complete rig, or it might be hard to sell. Sorry.

  10. Huge rain today in the Beaver Lake headwaters. Lake is only 2.2 feet below flood stage now. Rapid rise coming.
  11. Back in the day, (1960s-70s) we used to catch more fish on Beaver without fish finders than people catch now with them. Has the fish population declined?
  12. Anyone noticed the run starting? Usually small males come upriver first.
  13. 02-24-18: The White River at Elkins is rolling again, the second time this week. We should see lake level of 1120 Sunday.
  14. Do they sell fathead minnows?
  15. I knew a couple of guys way back in the early years of Beaver Lake that caught 10 bass in less than an hour that weighed about 63 pounds total. That was very unusual, even back then. Those bass probably were original stockers. The growth was incredible in the first four years of the lake staring to fill over the fields and woodlands. The five largest would have been well over 35 pounds total.
  16. He was kind enough to meet me at the 12 bridge ramp one day. Took me out in his boat and showed me how he catches crappie. Very nice and generous man!
  17. White River is barely trickling in most places. This fall has been even drier than last fall. The soil in fields around here is powder dry. Looks like 2006 all over again. Will we see the Monte Ne Amphitheater again soon?
  18. Some people gave him no credit, and negative vibes. He is a great guy. He started a FB forum.
  19. They don't need the power right now. It's an off peak part of the year, and Beaver is for peak electrical demands. They will not try to sell power when there is not much market for it. Winter power pool level is 1,120.43. The Southwest Power Pool will try to hold it to no higher than that, but can go lower depending on power needs, all the way down to 1,077.0.

    Bait Regulation.

    I can't either. I've always caught more on the AR River than on Beaver. It's a much richer fishery, and much richer in forage too. To guide on the river, a USCG Captain license is required.

    Bait Regulation.

    There are zebra mussels in the Arkansas River. Beaver may have some starting already from that practice. They take a few years to show up.

    Bait Regulation.

    That regulation will be very difficult to enforce.

    Bluegill

    Redear are getting huge (exceeding five pounds) in Lake Havasu Arizona due to their consumption of zebra mussels. Blue Catfish like to eat those mussels also.
