  1. I haven't heard of any huge brown sightings, even through the fall season so may be not. Hard to say for sure.
  2. White Bite is still on. But I've found it to be better below Fall Creek rather than above it. We saw shad coming through thick at our place a week ago Sunday so all these fish, probably clear down past the Landing, saw these and fed on them. I'm using a 1/16th oz jig because I want the jig not to sink very fast. I'm not jerking the jig but shaking it to give it a wiggle - like the shad that were going down last week.... stunned, or lifeless and letting it just sink real slow. I worked the bluff starting well down from FC to Short Creek, then starting where Sun Valley used to b
  3. I have a terrova tm I want to give my son in law but he doesn't have room for the third battery. So the question is - can he run it on 24v and if he does, what can he expect? Thanks
  4. This jig bite isn't the easiest. The reason for the light jig is to try to "float" it across the bottom. Too deep and it grabs moss. They are chasing, like Bill said. My son Caleb had some luck working it alittle faster.
  5. See.... my editor will take care of these little typos. I spelled it the way it sounded I was in a hurry!!
  6. This is no April Fool's Lake Taneycomo fishing report! The trout are biting! But it is still fishing and not catching. It did finally happen! All day Sunday, threadfin shad poured into Lake Taneycomo from Table Rock Lake. It was amazing. How and why they did, just all of a sudden, is a mystery. They came in alive and they came in stunned. Hundreds and thousands floated down past even our resort all day Sunday. And, yes, the trout would hardly bite on anything we threw at them. Our jigs and shad flies weren't any match to the real thing. And the shad outnumbered us a thousand

  8. He and his wife... they’re doing the whole Branson thing.
  9. He said it is the first time back since the early 80’s. His timing here was perfect. Will try to get him out again this week.
  10. Well after a day and a half, they started biting. Crazy bite this morning. The rainbow with my grandson Jerry is well over 23 inches.
  11. not a good one... I tried one on our bank last evening
  12. Fished late afternoon with Blake and Darin. We just got to the cable, videoing a "boat ride", the horn blew and they started shutting the spill gates. Talk about perfect timing although I didn't think they'd shut them till tomorrow. Lots of shad in the water. We drifted using shad flies, white jigs, sculpin jigs, egg flies, scuds - nothing. We tried everything. Drifted to Short Creek. Nothing. Those fish are keyed in on shad and they've had their fill today I guess. They're running 3 units at 10,000 cfs. They may slow it down tomorrow - we'll see. Table Rock is just below 91
  13. It started sometime this morning, early. Shad started POURING - not over the top - but through the turbines. It's 2:30 and they're still floating past our dock. The bite early was good but mid morning not so much. We did better below Fall Creek and on scuds, not shad flies. They are supposed to reduce flows either later today but probably in the morning (Monday). More info to come... and some awesome white bite fishing in the near future.
