  1. Last time these extreme low temperatures lasted this long the Threadfin Shad kill was HUGE ! And these lows are setting new records. -7 F this morning at Baxter. Walking out on a Dock it looked like the bottom was covered in Silver Dollars from all the dead Shad. The Lake is steaming like a cooling Lake does in mid-Winter at a Coal-fired Power Plant.
  2. 6 Inches at Baxter and the Ramp is Snow covered over a layer of Ice from three days of the freezing rain/drizzle. -6 F here this A.M. 2/16/2021. Forecast is for 3 to 5 inches more Snow tonight and tomorrow. Local side roads have not been touched. Correction: just dropped to -7 F.
  3. I'm certainly no expert but it seems common sense that a large part of the reason for not vaccinating more people is the astounding requirement that the Pfizer mRNA COVID vaccine has to be kept at 90 degrees below zero Fahrenheit to remain effective. When Pfizer first announced the vaccine success, the highly-respected non-profit, academic medical center "Mayo Clinic" immediately announced that even they had no refrigerated facilities that could maintain that incredibly low temperature. That has obviously been since rectified but not everywhere else ! By the way, Thank You President
  4. So in other words, the Editors running the KC Star are huge liars just like the ones running the St. Louis Post-Disgrace....why am I not surprised ? Create fear and confusion in order sell more Newspapers and achieve higher TV ratings ! Thank you and others on here with insider information for debunking the Fake News !
  5. Caught plenty of Drum at LOZ years ago but never heard of any in TR until this picture. Oddly, I was reading this just before seeing the pic: AGFC Finds Freshwater Drum in Norfork Lake – Hometown Daily News (hometowndailynewsarchives.com)
  6. There must be more than one boat in use by whomever or whatever is doing this. The boat we watched go back and forth and in circular and wildly varied "S-shaped" patterns for a couple of hours had a fully enclosed, permanent cabin structure on it and all the glass in the cabin was a very dark tint. No person was ever visible. Can't be sure but it seemed like it had a few more and different-looking antennas on the bow of the boat and the roof of the cabin. Thanks for posting the picture.
  7. We typically see the White Pelicans on their way through during Spring/Fall migrations but only very briefly. Saw an unusually large flock of about 35 birds circling above and beyond the neighboring Ridge to land over in the Little Indian Creek arm two weeks ago during that cold, rainy spell. They fly in a different formation than the huge flocks of Snow Geese that pass over since they kind of "stack-up" in single file, one bird behind the one in front and just a little higher. I've never personally witnessed them hanging around...maybe others have ?
  8. We've had a boat with several odd-looking antennas on the Roof and the Bow traveling back and forth at the mouth of the Big and Little Indian creek arms where they meet the White River channel out in front of Baxter Marina and the Baxter campground this morning. No one is visible on this boat as it has a fully enclosed cabin on the mid-section of the boat and that cabin has very dark tinted glass on it. Has anyone heard of or know of another mapping operation in process ? Thought that was accomplished when we saw about six boats spread-out in a line a few years back going slowly up th
  9. 3.6" at Baxter on TRL so far as of Wed. A.M. and a lot more is forecast today and tonight. I think the drought is ended LOL !
  10. I tried to be diplomatic and not crap on MK for that weird claim so I'm glad someone else saw through their statement that made no sense at all. I'm hearing many high-end trollers are going to brushless motors ( that I'm still trying to wrap my feeble brain around how they work ) and I own and use multiple brushless DeWalt power tools and really like their performance. So I'm now curious what the consequences of using Li-Iron ( not Li-ion ) batteries would be on brushless motors.....according to MK that is.
  11. Information in the link I provided claims the Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are not subject to the Thermal Runaway that Lithium Ion batteries have become infamous for that resulted in on-board aircraft fires while transporting them.
  12. That last sentence under the section about "SELECTING THE CORRECT BATTERIES" is very interesting, kinda'/sorta'. If you run your MK troller higher than 85% power ( on a real windy day lets say ) for a prolonged period you can cause damage to the motor ??????????? So, in other words, they are relying on the power-degradation of a lead-acid battery that is used heavily to protect their motors if used at more than 85% of the variable speed ? That statement indicates their motors cannot handle the higher continuous voltage a Li-ion is able to provide. That's the way it reads.
  13. New to me are the Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries I just discovered on eBay that are roughly half the price of Lithium Ion batteries. They aren't quite as light-weight as Lithium Ion but are still only 40% the weight of traditional lead-acid batteries. Saw them on the eBay site from a Chinese-maker in the $450-$499 range while they are on the Dakota battery site for the upper $800 range. Found this information about Lithium Ion vs. Lithium Iron Phosphate if anyone is interested: https://www.lithium-battery-factory.com/lithium-iron-phosphate-vs-lithium-ion/
  14. You hit the nail squarely on the old head with the comment about the astounding numbers of "Police protection" between BW and KC. Just incredible to see the numbers of MSHP, Sheriff, BW and KC cars usually seen in that short distance. And once the tourists have departed, it's common knowledge that then begin "preying" on the locals....especially KC and BW. Some of the daily shenanigans we see on the water out in front of our place during daylight and after sunset during "the season" makes us wonder why and how there are not more collisions and injuries on the water and we seldom see a
  15. Plenty of pictures of Bears, Bobcats (most often) and the occasional Cougar on this Facebook group. Just don't dare mention "hunting" or the admin will ban you forever. "Missouri Black Bear, Mountain Lion, & Bobcat Sightings"
