  1. Delayed on the post, but not much to report anyways. Too hot to do too much fishing last week so I only spent a few hours fishing total over a couple different mornings. Wasn't able to find much of anything, just can't figure this lake out. Threw swimbaits any time I saw fish on the graph, but no takers. Fished worms, ned around timber and points, threw topwater when i saw surface activity and just didn't get anything going. Better days ahead hopefully Nick
  2. Thanks for the advice, guys. We actually won't get down there until Monday afternoon so we're hopeful its not super busy on the lake. We will do most of our fishing early and late, and a topwater/worm bite would be ideal as my wife likes to fish that way or ned. I'll give a report of my findings (or lack thereof) when we get back! Nick
  3. Spending the week on the rock next week around kimberling city area with the wife. Wont be a full blown fishing trip as its more about the week away with wife but we will do some fishing and i was hoping to get some advice from you all on what to expect from the fish in that area. Haven't been on TR much and sont fish that area much at all so I'll be starting from scratch. Thanks!
  4. After a few failed attempts to get out on the water over the last couple months i finally got out last night. Fished from 630-12 when we saw some lightening moving in. Ran a couple main lake points and swings early with a couple dinks to show for it, then found a bunch of shad stacked up near the mouth of Birch branch a little before dark and found some LM. Caught them on a spook, shaky head and texas rigged worm pretty good up through dark. Got bit from the bushes out to about 15 feet. Nothing huge but a steady bite kept it interesting. Pics of a couple better ones, both about 3lb.
  5. Thank you Hunter75 that helps a lot!
  6. Wanting to go out Friday night to fish with a buddy but want to avoid any tourney crowds since we won't be entering them. Can anyone tell me where any tourneys might be Friday night? Or where to find a list? Thanks NH
  7. Signs up stating no public access/no ttrsspassing and rope across all pull off spots. I get not wanting people trashing your land but what a major bummer for us who respect it and even clean up when we see trash.
  8. Hadnt had a chance to float yet this year but finally went yesterday. Planned to launch from hooten and take out at Mudbank (aka marbleground or extension of V) but was surprised to find mudbank is no longer a public access point as apparently someone bought the land and isn't allowing people on it any longer. Ended up having hootentown rental bring us our vehicle at McCall bridge. Really bummed about this! That has been my favorite stretch of the river to day float but now its not possible without hiring an outfitter. Wish it could have been grandfathered in as a public access but i guess its HL kerr to Galena or further up river. Outside of that unexpected annoyance the float was great. Even with swift water the bite up in the bushes was good on a ned and shaky head, and could get bit swimming paddletails through current too.
  9. No specific area of the lake in mind, we will look on vrbo and others. Thanks guys
  10. Wife and i are looking for a cabin/lake house to rent for our anniversary week around Sept 1. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good place to stay? Would love it if a dock slip was included, and easy access to the water would be great as we both enjoy sitting in a lawn chair ankle deep. Thanks for any info NH
  11. Well done. Main lake or in a creek? What was the water temp in that area? Thanks!

    You all did better than us. We launched about 730, off the water by 1230. Fished main points and swings with different dragging baits, a rig and jerk baits. Caught a couple on main swings around some timber in 16-18ft as it fell off into the main river channel but we struggled to find much. Id guess 1ft or so water clarity down river from CC launch and warmest we saw was 43.5 or so.

    I am anticipating very stained relative to the norm

    Thanks guys. Wasn't sure how a max depth of only 25-30 would change how they relate to swings and points. Looking forward to it, I'll let you all know how it goes
