    Nailed it.....no possession during Spawn season.  Massive fines and confiscation of all equipment used if caught disobeying.

    I have gotten grief at the ball park during the anthem when I said something about take your hat off and place your hand over your heart.  Grief and also compliance.😎

    LD Fisher reacted to Randy Moore in Friday Evening June 26th   
    Attached are a couple of pics of a 6.0 lb Walleye my wife caught near point 9 on Friday evening about 8:00 pm.  It was fairly windy that evening.  The walleye nailed a small night crawler with no hesitation and took the bait deep under the boat.  My wife was using my Lew's medium light rod with a spinning reel and 8 lb test line.  We got the fish into the net on the first attempt, took pics, weighed the fish and returned it to the water.  Best guess on length is between 28 and 30 inches.  It was the highlight of an interesting week of fishing.  Report by Randy Moore

    I'm not sure what added value I could bring to you to seal the deal Quill- since your rig isn't brand new, i'm guessing its already had its First Scratch. It would take me at least two weeks to get from Bella Vista to Reeds Spring though. Lots of "traffic" this time of year along that route... Maybe I could offer a special on "backing up" your GPS data to my units, just in case yours ever crash, your waypoints would be safe with me! consider  my units your own personal Cloud!

    Staying in the Indian Point area and got in this afternoon, got some Danna’s bbq for dinner and headed out for a few hours before it got dark tonight. Had lots of bites and caught these two and lost a few more when they got off the hook.  Dragging tubes in about 15-20’ of water.

    Vernon and Bobby-
    Given that I'm still unemployed due to the COVID-19 restrictions on concerts and large events, I happen to be available to assist you guys.
    First Vernon- given that Bull Shoals is still only a foot or so below full flood pool, as a public service, I'd be happy to deliver your trailer fender from Flippin to Kansas, in order to prevent a man with your "special talents" from visiting the Bull Shoals drainage. All I would need would be for the OAF guys to take up a collection to pay for my fuel. If someone wanted to make sure I got some burnt ends while in the KC area, I suppose I wouldn't refuse that act of kindness, although truly, I'm acting purely out of the goodness of my heart, in the public's interest.
    As for Bobby's new boat- since it's not the same level of public service keeping Vernon in Kansas is, I'd have to have a reasonable per diem for my time, but I'm pretty confident I could get it from Flippin to Branson in about a week and a half. It would arrive ready to fish, motor broken in, and If we act fast, I could make sure to provide a few extra premium services, at no additional charge.
    New livewells have a disturbing fiberglass resin smell, which just ruins your day in the great outdoors. I will replace that chemical smell with a nice, complex air of Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted bass, that any livewell connoisseur would find pleasurably intoxicating.
    In addition to fixing the livewells, I also offer my special First Scratch service. We all know the level of concentration it takes to catch deep post spawn bass in the Ozark lakes, and I've found that new boat owners are often distracted by worrying about when their new boat might get its first  battle scar, and fail to be able to efficiently fish. In order to ease your mind and allow you to focus on fish, I will bear the burden of that first scratch in the gel, for a reasonable fee.
    Given that I'm also traveling with a 5 year old boy, I can also throw in the First Seat Hook Puncture at no charge, and possibly even the First Blood Spot, depending on how on his game my little guy is.
    Finally, given that its road repair season in the Ozarks, I will also provide, completely free of cost,  a light coat of fresh oil and gravel for the bottom of the hull and the trailer. This special coating protects the trailer, and breaks up the outline of the hull, acting as camouflage to the fish. 
    Again, I'm only temporarily available, so please, don't wait-  book now!!!!

    LD Fisher reacted to Browning Guy in When are we going again?   
    She's getting better every time we go out. I posted about things Ally says in the boat a week ago......this week she asked "when are we going again?".  A fun day on the water.... 30+ with 15 keepers including several 3's and a couple 4's. Ned rig (there I said it Spoony), but small swimbait caught the bigger fish. By 10:30, Ally was napping on the back deck and I had to take a selfie several times. Bite was over by 12:00. 
    About catch and release......it works. One fish spit up a shad and crawdad coming to the boat. Lipped it and looked in its gullet to find a ned rig deep and another shad tail. A good reminder to simply cut the line. This fish had three natural sources of food, one ned and was eating my swimbait. Simply leave the bait if its deep and give them a chance.

    LD Fisher reacted to NebSchmidty in Quick outings -- Indian Point   
    Made our 10th annual spring trip (a month late) down in record time, thanks to minimal traffic and almost zero road construction.  Got out Saturday evening and then again in 1-3 hour spurts, twice a day since then -- kids have their limits/priorities which seem to be limiting my fishing time a lot more these days.  Been out scavenging within a couple minute ride from the marina in either direction.  I've tried a few different presentations with minimal luck... so have pretty much resorted exclusively to my confidence bait, given the post-frontal cool, stiff north wind, and rising water. 
    If it's sunny, you want your 1/8oz ned to be some sort of light and natural color, but with a slight variation (dirt).  If there's clouds, you want red flake and a darker body (gp/red or cali craw).  Your ned rig in aforementioned size/color will usually prefer a slow, methodolical drag... often shining the brightest when you've parked your pole to help one of the three co-anglers in your boat to retrieve their fish, get a snack, or do something else that doesn't allow you the opportunity to remove your own lure from outside of the day's strike zone.  Most bites I'd estimate are coming from 6-16' depth, with boat in 15-22'ish, depending on time of day, temp, and sunlight.  Just outside the trees, or inside usual "old bank line" range seems to be somewhat of a loose marker of where I've been casting as a starting point. If you're a regular, you'll know what sort of terrain is the best target right now.  If you're not a regular, find some gravel flats on/near points.
    Most of my pics are on mobile, so I'll have a few pieces of documentary evidence appearing soon.

    The things my little girl comes up with in the boat........
    "Dad, that's a fish landing violation. 2 minute penalty."
    "Dad, how close to the dock are we? I need to pee." My response....."we just left the house".
    Me: "Hey Ally....do you know why the fish get under the docks when it's raining? So they don't get soaking wet!". Ally: looks at me like I have 7 eyes.
    Such a blessing to have her ask......"can I go" before I have a chance to ask her.

    You’re in luck!  We’re heading home tomorrow morning so I’m sure conditions will improve dramatically once we’ve cleared downrange. 

    Consider today just a little going away gift to remember us by😉. 
    Kinda curious what the total rainfall since last Thursday has been as well as the median daily temperatures.
    Personally, we think this week just might represent some of our finest work - highlighted by Monday and Tuesday!
    As for the fishing we’re the last two guys you should ask!

    LD Fisher reacted to Quillback in New parking requirements at COE ramps   
    With heavy rain in the forecast, and the expected rise in the water level at TR, parking spots at the ramps will be limited.  Therefore the COE has requested that boat owners use the least amount of space possible to park their rigs.  Here's the pic they posted of the recommended way to park.

    Looks like the lake level is headed up due to all the rain.  I hope it doesn't get too high because when everyone was catching two fish per hook, I couldn't get to my boat without using another boat!  We are heading down next weekend for an extended stay (along with probably 60,000 of my closest friends😆).  The wife and I came two weeks ago to do a little meat fishing and did well, but we lost two crappie to some unemployed otters😡.
    Hopefully the fishing will still be good, I can reach my boat on the dock, the tackle I've been stockpiling based on everyone reports will still be good and I can find a small piece of quite water to fish!  If you see a silver ranger angler out, please stop by!
     
    oh, does anyone know when Vernon is going home?  I need to know if I need to pack all of our rain gear!! 😂🤣😂
    Keep all the reports coming and thanks for all the information!!  Just please don't tell me that the fish have changed their minds on what they will bite!  I can't afford to buy more tackle, besides I not sure I could fit more into my truck!
