  1. Smallest 19” couple of 21’s and a 23” and some fat Gills for good measure
  2. I’ve been using the USACE Little Rock App On my phone for several years a lot of water level info at your fingertips
  3. I’ve never been on Beaver Lake but Bull is going to get really high and the campgrounds I usually stay at are closed now, until 9/30 due to flooding. So figured I would give Beaver a try. Thanks for the reply !!
  4. Will my June Bottom Bouncing techniques that I use with Some success on Bull Shoals work at Beaver will be fishing early June During the week , and is the Lost Bridge area a good place to start
  5. I just received and email from rev.gov cancelling my camping reservations at Tucker Hollow For first two weeks of June. Email said Tucker Hollow Campground would be closed until September 30th due to Flooding. Not Sure what level they close Tucker but sounds like Bull may be pretty high for a long while. I like to stay a few days first part of June to Walleye fish, guess I’ll make a new plan
  6. I happen to like pretty much like all fish, but Years ago I worked with a guy who had a tried and true recipe for just about everything he disliked the taste of and it seemed to work for him. Place one White Bass on a seasoned Hickory 1x4 board, One inch longer than the fish your cooking. salt and season to taste place in oven preheated to 350 degrees for 2 hours remove from oven give the fish to the cat and eat the board. Footnote: Supplement White Bass for anything you dislike. And some people prefer Oak or Cherry.
  7. Got my June Walleye trip in and it was a good one. Weather was perfect for the most part, water clarity was good a little Dingy for Bull but good for fishing, Caught Walleye every day Bottom Bouncing, only 1 or 2 keepers each day 25” the largest 19 to 22 for the rest. Fish were 30-35 ft deep off of main and secondary lake points although I probably spent the majority of my time on secondary points hooked up with several Fat Spots 4 small mouth and an occasional LMB and of course the ever present Monster Blue Gills A lot of bass working the surface Early morning I was tempted but stayed knee deep in the worm dirt MLF showed up on my doorstep Weds as I was camped across the creek from the High Water Ramp they we’re having one of there Cup tournaments only 9 boats competing. Identical 18’ Nitros all the competitors cameramen and officials get a break midday come in and grab a sack lunch they beached next to my campsite for lunch, then back out, 7 hours total of fishing they were a super nice group of people and apparently tore them up on top water and chatter baits as the front and rain came in Weds. morning
  8. Thanks for the info!! Weather forecast looks favorable next week so heading that way Sunday will fish til Thursday hopefully I will have some success and can post a report and some good pics of Some BS Walleye Thanks Again
  9. Well that’s good to hear!!! Thanks so much!!
  10. I like to scratch my Walleye itch in June normally the 1st or 2nd week of the month. But I fear I may have to use Benadryl this year. I normally find them in 20 to 25 ft of water in early June, my preferred method of fishing is bottom bouncers with a worm harness. I’m familiar with there normal water level living quarters this time of year and feel confident in catching a few, last year was an exceptional year So doing the math with the known water levels (had to take my shoes off) I’ve Ciphered that the stinking fish are in the brush. Worse than that, I fear that there scattered all over the place in the brush. Where’d I put that Benadryl? Anybody targeting the toothy critters with success in this high water? or is everyone picking them up while fishing the brush for bass I guess bottom bouncers don’t have to bounce on the bottom I have rigs with line counters so I’m wondering if a guy could troll over the top of the brush and entice them to come out for a snack, or will I just spend all day swearing at the brush I’m hung up in. any ideas or experience on how to target them or is it just one of those years
  11. If you have not fished much for Walleye I would suggest 2oz. Bottom Bouncers, most of the bait shops around the lake sell them and I like Slow death worm harness’s single hook with a copper, chartreuse or silver blade or propeller type blade. Thread the crawler all the way over the hook,cover it up, pinch the crawler off about an inch behind the hook.i also like the Gulp leaches and worms there not nearly as messy as the the live crawlers and more durable if the Blue Gills are working you over, but the crawlers will get you more bites, get your boat in 25’ of water and with the boat not moving drop your bait to the bottom, count it down unless you have reels with counters.Troll at 1 mph to 1.5 generally speaking you fish Bottom bouncers on the bottom... but don’t be afraid to count it down 25’ and troll in 30’ or even 35’ Best I can tell Walleye are about like all the other fish on Bull Shoals, so if your trolling an area and catching spots or Gills move out a little deeper, I don’t think the panfish like to set at the dinner table with the Walleye....not healthy. Good Luck and by all means HAVE FUN!!!!
  12. See previous post for description and history of boat The high back camo seat does not go with the boat I have the other matching seat it’s in good condition
  13. Putting my 2005 Supreme up for sale its a 2060 series I Purchased this boat in 2014 15hp Mercury has been well maintained runs good starts easy, 2 years ago I hit a Rock at the confluence of the Buffalo and the White broke the drive shaft off at the Power Head really strange because it did not do anything to the prop or skeg had certified Mercury Mechanic tear it down and replace Drive Shaft, Mercury was selling a kit for the 03's to 05's Mechanic said probably a bad temper on the drive shaft since the Skeg and Prop were not damaged and Mercury had a kit for those years I added a Minn Kota 45 lb foot control Trolling motor like new in 2015 also put a depth Garmin Depth finder on Last Year No SCREWS in Hull everything on with adhesive Has a nice Boat Cover Made Local south of Mountain Home on Hwy 5 guess its a 2005 also 2 live wells .... but previous owner Glassed the hole over on Starboard live well to make it a storage area.... works okay every thing stays dry Has 2 Spider chairs and a Pedestal seat in front just behind front Deck and Pedestal seat at stern Seats 4 but that front Pedestal seat is really for casting from the front deck EZ Loader trailer....
