  1. Stacey King of Reeds Spring, Missouri, began competing on the Walmart FLW Tour at Lake Travis, Texas, on Feb. 12, 2007, and at that event, he won $12,000. Since that day, he has competed in 70 FLW tournaments, including four of the prestigious Forrest Wood Cup events, and won $427,000.

  3. The initial and only response from the Missouri Dept of Conservation was that they have never stocked reservoir-strain smallmouth bass in Missouri, fearing that they would adversely affect the stream-strain smallmouth bass in the Ozark region. In addition, they said that they don't want to stock species that aren't native to the waterways. After several more petitions to several MDC fisheries folks, one biologist, who has now retired, responded and said that our requests would be pondered by the appropriate folks in the MDC. But many months have transpired, and we haven't heard a word.
  4. The folks who mentioned that they are interested in the history of the stocking of reservoir-strain smallmouth bass in Oklahoma can contact Gene Gilliland at GGillOkla@aol.com. He is a fine angler and fisheries biologist. And he might render an opinion about smallmouth bass in Taneycomo. For anglers who have expressed an appreciation of the smallmouth bass on this forum, I would like to note that John and Roger Kehde, of Sedalia, Mo., and I have been petitioning the Missouri Dept.of Conservation to stock reservoir-strain smallmouth bass into Truman Lake. We have witnessed what has transpir
  5. We can contact Gene Gilliland at GGillOkla@aol.com, and he will tell us the history of reservoir-strain smallmouth bass stockings in Oklahoma. So far reservoir-strain smallmouth recruitment at Taneycomo has been meager; thus if anglers want them, they will have to convince the MDC to periodically stock them. And perhaps they will eventually find a recruitment niche; the fisheries world is an inscrutable endeavor; thus pays not to give up hope. And you can fight Mother Nature; Leonard Jirak of Hartford, Kansas, and the Kansas Dept of Wildlife and Parks has fought her a lot and won some bat
  6. There is a difference between reservoir-strain and stream-strain smallmouth bass. Traditionally, stream-strain smallmouth bass have a difficult time recruiting in a reservoir, but Taneycomo isn't a traditional reservoir. In eastern Kansas, we have a 5,000-acre power-plant reservoir that supports a significant population of reservoir-strain smallmouth bass, and during a calender year, the water temperatures in this lake range from 38 degrees to 90 degrees. In recent years, some anglers in Kansas have asked the biologists to raise reservoir-strain smallmouth bass until they are eight-inche
  7. Even Gete Hibdon is using braid nowadays on some of his spinning outfits. Gary Yamamoto is using on his spinning tackle, and Shin Fukae, the new master of finesse, occasionally uses it.
  8. A number of Kansas finesse anglers are using either 6- or 8-pound-test Stren Microfuse. A six-foot fluorocarbon leader is attached with either a J-knot or a Seaguar knot. Some anglers find that the Seaguar knot is easier to tie when the wind is blowing.
  9. Dear dtrs5kprs: Your ponderings about the adverse effects of the radical fluctuations of Truman Lake's water levels on smallmouth bass are interesting. We can note that Melvern Lake, which lies at the headwaters of Truman Lake in Osage County, Kansas, experiences similar fluctuations. What’s more, Melvern’s water clarity isn’t clear as Truman’s. Yet despite the stained water, Melvern’s smallmouth bass are recruiting, and the smallmouth bass fishing is better at Melvern than it is at Stockton Lake, Missouri. We suspect that one reason why the smallmouth bass fishing is better at Melv
  10. It should be noted that anglers at Grand Lake, Oklahoma, are petitioning their fisheries biologists to stock reservoir-strain smallmouth bass. But it looks as if that will not occur because it is feared that the reservoir-strain smallmouth bass will adversely affect a genetically distinct strain of smallmouth bass that abide in several of the streams that feed Grand Lakes. The Oklahoma biologists note that the mixing of the gene pools would result in the loss of native stocks," and that is a serious and legitimate concern. The smallmouth bass, however, that abide in Truman’s feeder streams ar
  11. Mr. Lilley ask for some data. Here is one example: In 1994, 394 six-inch smallmouth were stocked into Melvern Lake, which lies on the Marais des Cygne River and eventually becomes the Osage River and flows into Truman Lake. Melvern is a flatland reservoir. Its waters are relatively stained. According to most anglers’ perspectives, the clarity ranges from several inches at its worst to about five feet on the best of days. (Secchi disc readings, however, might be a tad better than the eyes of anglers). Melvern’s shoreline is graced with miles of rock and gravel, as well as long e
  12. To Missouri Department of Conservation and Concerned Anglers: A sizeable number of anglers want the Missouri Department of Conservation to stock reservoir-strain smallmouth bass into Truman Lake by following the practices that the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation have developed during the past 20 years. For example, the KDWP has developed a dynamic smallmouth bass fishery on the upper reaches of Truman’s watershed at Melvern Lake. And elsewhere in Kansas, significant smallmouth bass populations exist at Coffey County, El Dor
