    i've cleaned out several trollers over the years.  sometimes you just have to have a prepared rod laying on the deck  for them.  most of the stuff they use just goes the the trash can.

    Personally I don't have a problem with spotlights and I think every boat should have one if navigating in the dark.  Everybody complains about it  "killing their night vision" .... but apparently their night vision sucks because they keep running into each other out there.    
    Myself, I don't care whose night vision I harm, or what alleged "laws" I break.  If I can't clearly see what's in front of me then the spotlight gets plugged in.

    people just don't get it, I would bet that the boat that caught fire at the Kings River Marina didn't run his blower or it wasn't working

    Whites are hard to track down this time of year.  Usually they show up randomly and are gone just as quick.  Crappie arent the best on that part of the lake either. Im sure they are around, but not in the numbers like other lakes.  Someone else may know where to find a few around there.   Throwing worms for some big gills would probably be a lot more fruitful for the youngsters

    Gentlemen, after spending 30+ year in the refining and marketing of fuels, I can tell you that all motors/engines are designed to use a 10% blend of ethanol.  As Wrench stated, the components will eventually wear out or degrade no matter what fuel you use!
    i am not a fan of ethanol, but when the government mandates and subsidizes a product to make price attractive, it will be used.  That being said, I use it in all of my outboards, inboards and small engines and have for years with absolutely no problems or issues.  Ethanol is extremely water sensitive, therefore i change water separators on marine engines annually, if I see a transport delivering gas to a station I will go to a different station to buy gas.  Why? Because while ethanol is metered and added to the transport at the terminal like any other gasoline additive, the key to not having problems lie at the station.  The station needs to be diligent about how much water has condensed in their gasoline tanks and remove any excess water before it is pumped into your tank.  When a transport drops gas into the stations tank, it will mix the sediment and water in the tank with the new gas and this will be suspended for a period until it settles back to the bottom.  Most gasoline stations will have filters in the gas pump housing to filter this sediment before you put it in your tank, but I still don't like filling up while a transport is dropping their load at the station.
    Ethanol has a lower btu than regular gasoline and therefore reduces mileage in a vehicle or affects gallons per hr in a boat.  But, it is almost impossible to find ethanol free gas.  Ethanol also boosts octane by 2 points, so, depending on the gas stations tank configuration, ( most only have 2 tanks ) you are buying 87octane gas that is in most cases 89 octane because to have a true 87 octane blended gasoline the station would have to find and buy a 85 sub octane gasoline which is not readily available at product terminal and generally only available at the refineries terminal.  To provide 89 octane the station would need 3 tanks or blend a straight 87 with a 91 octane to get a 89 octane at the pump, this would put the station at a disadvantage because of the cost.  So, if a station has straight or ethanol free 91 octane at the pump it is probably selling 89 octane at both the 87 and 89 octane pumps.  
    Long story short, today's engines and fuel systems are designed for a 10% ethanol blend and other than reducing btu's, with common sense maintenance one should not, as Wrench said, experience any problems on the water with a blended fuel.

    Table Rock Lake Current Fishing Report June, 14 2019  Shell Knob, MO.
    White River Outfitters
    Perhaps the most perfect Top Water Morning, Just up Stream from Shell Knob.
    ss
    The Idea this morning was to fish out of Eagle Rock.  I had a last minute cancel that I was not able to fill and have two trips next week out of Eagle Rock and wanted to get up there and see what was happening.  Got to the 86 bridge at 5:30, and knew I was in trouble as there were boats and rigs parked everywhere.  Didn't want to fight the mob, I'm guessing a pretty decent size derby.
    Didn't want to waste a perfect morning so I booked for the Shell Knob Bridge Ramp and there were only 2 rigs there at a little after 6.  Lots of boats flying by from up stream so I'm guessing the ER derby crowd was headed downstream to big water.  Mistake for the most part.  I headed upstream right into the teeth of them.  Boats on most ever dock and major runnout from SK to Carter, all right on the bank or flipping any dock they could find.
    With the cloud cover slight drizzle and little chop you could not have ordered a better Top water morning.  Fish were absolutely blowing everywhere at depth.  At first I thought they were whites, but nope, mostly LM with some really nice K's and several Jaws mixed in.  I petty much caught big keeper fish cast after cast from 6:15 till 9:30 on a Fin.  I have fished here in the good and bad times and today for me was for sure one of the good times.  Wish my son could have been out with me, he was here last week and we caught fish, mostly on a jig but today was special as it was all about the Top.

    A couple of guys that were fishing a dock came out and pulled up to me saying that had seen me wacking them and did not mean to intrude but wondered how I was catching them.  I asked first off did you catch any on that dock and they said no.  They had watched the MLF guys catching them early in the mornings on a shad spawn under docks and thought that was the deal.  I said it might have been a month ago, but those fish were long gone and out here for me to catch.  I tried to help them, but It just was not going to happen,so I wished them luck and they pulled off.

     About that time the fish blew up again.  I was sitting in 106  feet of water.
    Message to self, I don't think White River bass need to hide under anything.😎
    Just about every fish I caught and the numbers were a bit silly, were keepers.  With the way they were feeding this morning, I'm guessing they probably will not eat again until sometime next month.   I just got really lucky being in the right place on the right day at the right time.

     
    These fish were chasing schools of shad and also schools of fry.  There are just millions of tiny fry swimming in big schools around the Knob.  Some shallow and some deep.  Just have no idea how many offspring are out there this year as I think we  had a fantastic spawn.  

     
    My boat was so saturated with poop, fry, shad and crayfish that I had to take it to the car wash and wash it out to prevent from grinding it into the carpet.

    Lots of Daddy's in them also, just about the size of a 3/8 oz. jig
    Put lots of fish on the board, but for the most part just gave them a smooch and sent them back to the briny deep to continue on their feeding binge.

    I did catch 1 on a jig just for kicks and grins and a couple on a drop shot and a spoon, but the Fin was the deal by far on this perfect top water day on Table Rock Lake.

    I believe the BPT guys get 2 full practice days prior to fishing, so with good electronics and 2 days to ride around, they should have found the fish.  Tough for the weekend fisherman to devote that much time looking around.

    It takes a lot of patience to get as good with electronics as these guys are. Learning how to set them up, learning what you are seeing... I always just give up and start casting and fishing every time I set out to spend a day just learning electronics. I'm just gonna have to take all the rods out of the boat and spend some time getting better at it.

    The fish at Table Rock has been eating up the Ned Rig so we took the grandkids down to Shell Knob to get in on some of the action. Its the easiest bait to fish I have ever seen and the fish eat it up. Everybody caught fish.....it was a ball. Family time, lovin' on the grandkids, and catching fish.....what an awesome day.

    The wife and I decided to take our other grandson fishin' on Tuesday 5/28 and we had a ball. They ate the Ned Rig so good last week so I tied one on for everybody and they are still eating it up.....I taught Ethan how to fish with a spinning rod and how to work the Ned Rig. I even gave him my fishing pole. He started catching them really good.....then he started getting cocky......So I had to show him who's boss..... It was a great day. We caught fish and laughed until we cried several times. The boy is a blast to fish with. My wife was the camera "man" all day and did an excellent job. What a day....
