    Bus on Beaver Bridge

    The bridge is closed until further notice. They were already doing repairs from 8 to 4 pm weekdays when the incident occurred (two buses btw) The bridge is damaged though no one yet has stated the cause. People in Beaver are forced to take the long way via 62 or Roaring River if they want to work, shop, or go to church. Many will leave their cars on the Holiday Island side and walk across to avoid the detour. If the buses caused damage, more than a ticket will be at stake.

    It's National Dessert Day! My Nancy wins!
  9. I went out from 9 to 2 today. Water temp was 69-70. The air was 50 to 60. Very little wind blew. The problem was that I could not find a pattern.I fished 5 feet to 25 feet of water and tried steep and flat areas. I caught one on a top water. None on a blade. None on a jig. 4 on a Ned. All were small. I did enjoy the total absence of "pleasure boaters."

    Any Stripers in Table Rock Lake?

    Very few, if any. The only source would be if they came through the Beaver dam and survived. However, Jeff Fletcher caught an Arkansas record striper, 64.5, in the river below Beaver dam in 2002.

    As do I. Tonight I relied on Harter House (Shell Knob branch). Chicken Kiev over chicken broth rice with a good salad on the side.
