  1. Fun Fishing

    Got a buddy who's Father-n-law guides on Taneycomo , Bruce Curtis who owns Payable Guide Service. He has been after me to go fishing with him for a few months now so yesterday Heath, Smiley and myself finally hooked up and went out for some fun fishing. Fished from fall creek down to the landing and down past Roark creek never fished that area just duck hunted it, I sure wish duck season was open though lots of Wood Ducks around:) I can honestly say I have never trolled for trout in my life. What a fun day we had nothing big except for one big bass that my buddy smiley caught. Keeping the line bouncing on the bottom about 100 foot behind the boat was no easy feat with no generation but with the kicker motor set on cruise control we had no worries. You may have seen his boat out on the lake it is a Wooldridge and has all the rods all over the back and top. Here is a pic of the bass that Smiley caught on a husky jerk. I will say this those Trout sure love that pink power bait. Never thought I would ever be able to say that in a fishing report๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ it was a good time for sure!!
  2. Night Report 10/5/17

    It was a glow stick that they use for golf balls and we put in a large teardrop foam indicator.
  3. Run the water that's all the Corp wants to do and all I want to do is fish!! So last night for the first time ever I fished a lighted indicator along with a buddy of mine. I know this die hard streamer fisherman did just that. The results put the boat on the water at 10:15 boated to the cable took the boat off of the water at 1:15am. We fished the mega worms all colors white,red,pink& cream. Fishedthem about 8-9 foot deep and boated over 50 fish to the boat. Nothing huge but had some great quality bows along with a few browns. Fished the south side then would switch to the north side and picked up around 5-6 fish per drift. I never thought I would ever do this but you have to adapt and I think I am hooked!

  5. Blast and Cast

    Well shoot I would have love to talk to ya next time you see my longbboat up there give us a shout. You could have got in with us and drifted it has been good. Just hard to drift the north due to the waders. I had Olivia out with me last Sunday and I just anchored in front of outlet 1, so she would have a chance at some big browns. It seemed to work out until some guy decided he need to come across a pod of fish neck deep for no reason๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. Blast and Cast

    Well then that must mean the continued run of the water is due to the others not able to produce enough power. I hope they get the right eggs this year and they are coho salmon like they have done in the past๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. Blast and Cast

    Woke up around 3:30 drove to the farm with my buddy Matt to go turkey hunting. All we saw were some small hens and decided to pass just because we wanted something bigger than 4 pounds๐Ÿ˜‚. So we headed south to Taney for the casting part, picked Matts brother up and got the boat on the water around 10am. Nice and cloudy and just the right flow , looked to be about 1/2-1 unit of water. So we boated to the cable and fished the south bank making several drifts and catching 4-5 fish each drift. We fished the cream and white Mega worm along with orange eggs. By about 2 it started to rain then big rain set in and we were off the water by 3pm. Caught a lot of rainbows and no browns. Is it me and my eyes or has the water been really stained up the last few weeks? Looks like a lot of browns are stacked up on the north bank too. After seeing a lot of browns yesterday on the north side it makes me wonder if MDC has told the corp to run water so that the ladders can fill up so that they can collect the eggs. Just makes sense that this might happen since the corp has pretty much ran straight through for all most a week. Could also be because Bull Shoals or Norfork has 2 units down for repair not sure which one. Just food for thought, I just like my night time fishing with low water. Oh and don't forget this weekend in Mountain Home Ar. the Fly Fishing Fair will be going on at the UofA campus 5 bucks gets you in the door to see all the tiers and vendors. Also as Vp of Education I have to plug the youth part which is free to kids and is on Saturday they will be taught to tie some simple flies then will be taken to Dry Run Creek for on the water seminar. Till next time!! Giddy Up!!
  8. Day Time 9/30/17

    Olivia my middle daughter wanted to go fishing so we loaded up the boat and headed south met up with another buddy and his boy and put the boat in at 7am. Perfect water conditions to drift today, we boated up to the cable and started drifting down the south side fished mega worms in white, cream and red. Eggs in cream, peach and orange were the best today. Set the depth around 7-8 foot just deep enough so it bounced right along the bottom. They started catching fish right off the bat and about every drift they would pick up 4-5 fish the fish for us shut down around 10-10:30. Nothing huge but lots of fish and lots of smiles today and that's what it is all about..

    Incognito that's the way I like it๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  11. Wow 3 nights in a row of low water can't ask for it to be much more perfect than it has been. Last night we put the drift boat in and rowed up to the cable. Only saw 2 fisherman out fishing I can't believe there are not more people taking advantage of the low water at night. Fished the south side of Taney up by the cable first cast of the night was a nice little Kentucky then the rest were nice bows. I would go out on a limb to say that the avg fish last night was 18-19" long. Color of choice last night was playmate special and blood red. The moon had already went down behind the bluff by the time we got the boat in which was around 10 and we fished till 2 am. Going to take tonight off but I will see you all Saturday.

  13. Any night bite lately?

    I used to wade fish Taney all the time at night now I just use my boat and have zero issues getting where I want to go top or bottom, not that I need to have my boat out where I fish at I just enjoy it more for the ease of fishing. I have fished Taney going on 23 years now so I know the water very well, I suggest you learn it and learn it well in the day time so you know where everything is located because at night in the fog it can be very tricky if you have no idea where you are. As far as color of fly or lure I am a true believer in water movement verses the color if you have a fly or lure that will push water it will catch just as many fish as you want since trout become very predatory fish at night. Second is the color and to me reds, blues and purples work great for me but I have a lot confidence in those colors on the way a fish can see. I used to have a couple books that were titled " how fish see" & "how fish work" I loaned both books out and I have never seen them since then, it is a very good book full of information about color and how a fish see's it. It also talks about things or I just say it "animals that trout love to eat from mice to ducks. I would suggest that every fisherman read it for all the great knowledge that the author puts out there. Just my 2 cents worth from a strictly streamer fisherman at night.
  14. Not a bad night of fishing water was off and low by 8pm. Put the boat in and primarily fished big hole starting at the top and floating down. Had some waders fishing rebar or I would have gone up to the cable, there seems to be a good number of big fish hanging out up there. Nothing of good size but had a lot of silver bullets that wanted to eat. Blood Red was the ticket till the moon faded away then evil leprechaun was the color of choice. Last night they did not want it moving at all so we spent the night on a tight line with the swing. Would you also look who I found lurking around the ramp looking for a free ride ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐ŸŽฃ we fished from 8-1:30.
