  1. Would a siphon or use of the sluice gates be enough to make a difference with O2?
  2. Miss my 2003 G3 1860. Had a 90HP 2 stroke Yamaha on it and in calm water that boat would scoot. Great for fishing any lake and using as duck boat in winter. Bought it new from Center City Marine in Springfield. Boat was easy to pull, put in, and load. Light enough to manhandle in the driveway or when putting in storage. That boat would float in 3 inches of water. Never should have sold it. Guy who bought it from me was going to build a larger front deck and turn it into a bass fishing boat
  3. Nothing wrong with white bass. Just have to get the red/brown stuff cut out of the fillets and I let them soak overnight in a brine before freezing or cooking them
  4. Always did best tied up to a tree at mouth of coves. Big Sac arm south of twin bridges. Minnows
  5. What a hog. That dull slap of the water gives me chills
  6. Wonder how many years in the lake's existence there has been a 10ft rise between Thanksgiving and Christmas?
  7. Lot of old models and data used. A lot more runoff in the basin with NWA, Springfield, and Branson development. Feds were using data from the 1960s to price mortgages in the 2000s and helped lead to the meltdown.
  8. And yet, they could have been passing more water though and keeping the White from potentially becoming ridiculous. But no, they backed it off once the lakes dipped just below flood pool setting up a situation when any large widespread rainfall could have destructive consequences from from NW Arkansas to New Orleans. Corps plays russian roulette.
  9. Still trending further east with 4pm advisory
  10. Still trending east little by little:
  11. Updated forecast maps: Although not great considering how full the lakes are, max rainfall in the 3" range. A few local amounts up to 6" possible in north central Arkansas and south central MO. A few days ago there was a swath of 4-6" totals in the forecast all the way through central and eastern Arkansas and central MO. I'd put more stock in the local office maps at this juncture to pinpoint more exact areas of rainfall amounts. The 7 day QPF is based entirely on computer models and is a good source for rain potential and areas that will get rain. Pretty good consensus with the local offices
  12. More model data here: Also, follow Ryan Maue on twitter.
  13. Updated storm track cone and rainfall forecast. Forecast track hasn't changed much for center of circulation. Width of uncertainty just getting smaller. Maybe a slight trend east
  14. I'd go past Shell Knob to Big M or Eagle Rock area. Troll or drift (drift sock if wind is right alignment with cove) jigs with 3" grubs or roadrunners in big coves or small tributary arms like Roaring River. When sun goes down tie up to trees in large coves nearest the main lake you can get and use minnows under a bait light.
  15. One good thing is that it at least appears to move fast and not stall out.
  16. Getting close to a 50/50 chance of it being a hurricane at landfall
  17. Hoping for prolonged dry spell. If they are keeping Newport below flood stage don't understand why they wouldn't keep dumping water. Seems like malpractice to hold this much water back and then if the rain returns they would have to double or triple the current flow leading to complete devastation along the whole chain and river. Oh, and a gulf storm is looking more and more likely
  18. Bingo. Two lakes become one when Taney tailwater matches Taney elevation
  19. Is there a source for Taney tailwater level? BS 695 is downstream at the dam. Would be higher upstream and taney is 702 at powersite dam.
  20. Two or three years ago when they were running about 20k cfs we were headed up from Lilleys dock in the morning and started seeing a bunch of stuff floating in the water and a couple of older gentlemen in a pontoon were scooping up what they could with dip nets around the pump house. Didn't think a whole lot of it, but as we continued up lake we kept seeing more tackle and trash. We get up to Trout Hollow and there is a small bass boat about half sunk with the stern up in the air. Luckily, a dock barge was there assisting the fisherman who looked pretty dang scared obviously. Would seem he had
  21. They have put two or three more wing dikes in on the Missouri that you can see just from the Jeff City bridge in the last few years. Who knows how many that you can't see from the road. All under the guise of deepening the channel. Sorry, but barge traffic between Jeff City and Omaha ain't coming back. The only barges above Jeff City are local sand dredging operations. Jeff City government leaders are trying to establish a port authority thinking that all these barges will start coming up from St Louis. If it was feasible and made money they would never have stopped doing it. Throwing more tax
