  1. Reminder to those of you in the league to get your rosters set. BASS Elites start back up next week. Don't forget!
  2. As others have said give Bill Babler at White River Lodge a call. Class act, best boat and gear you could ask for in a guide and flat out knows every nook and cranny of Table Rock. If the bass are tough he also does Trout trips on Taneycomo. Always a good option in the heat of the summer. Give him a call and he can tell you what you can expect for your seasonal trip. https://www.whiteriverlodgebb.com/fishing.html
  3. This but with a jerkbait depending on time of year. June/July topwater early AM is going to be a better bet but people sleep on jerkbaits once it rolls into May. Not sure why that is but it's a mistake.
  4. I checked out Moonshine and people are able to launch there off the parking lot. Also had plenty of parking when I was there on Friday. The courtesy dock ramp is flooded and you have to wade out to the walkway on it. Saw one guy do it launching some jetskis and it got up to his chest before he got to the dock platform. I ended up just picking them up at State Park. Visitors are parking in the grass right at the entrance and then being shuttled down in a golf cart to the marina. It all worked out.
  5. That's a bummer. Sorry to hear that! Glad I have 5 more of them. Three of which are custom painted by Mr. Hughes. But only one in the color that shalt not be named.
  6. I've done well on the Mikey. Only complaint is that it cast like crap and helicopters most times.
  7. Thanks guys! High water sure is a pain in the butt for just about everything lake related. Except for Quill who is probably currently running his picnic table pattern and loving it.
  8. It wasn't my idea. Saw it A LONG TIME AGO on another fishing forum. It's light years better than using an old sawed off rod and big round reel that lots of guys use. Or winding the stupid thing by hand around a board (or pick your random cylindrical object). It's saved hundreds if not thousands of dollars dollars by now. I've said it before but it also had made me a better angler due to the fact that I have almost no fear of throwing expensive baits into areas I know I am likely to get hung up. Plenty of spots like that in TR with all the trees, cables, etc. I have about a 90% or better success rate of getting it back with the retriever.
  9. In-Laws are coming down and staying in Stonebridge/Ledgestone which isn't far from State Park area. Wanted to pick them up in the pontoon coming from across the lake in Beardsley. Is there anywhere around there to park/use a dock so I can load them up? Not sure with the lake level what docks may be available or where they might park their vehicle while we play on the 'toon for the day. Was thinking Moonshine ramp might work. State Park Parking lot might be flooded?
  10. https://www.lews.com/accessories/retriever Add the above to this: https://www.harborfreight.com/24-ft-retractable-dog-leash-91836.html?cid=paid_google|||91836&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=&utm_content=&gclid=CjwKCAjwztL2BRATEiwAvnALctXYYqbt3rBTcDsaITQ1xUDd8yMqfZu29S-aBl2oX70LOGxUzGdeehoCCqwQAvD_BwE Easily stowed. Easily deployed. Rod in one hand and retriever in the other for a one man operation. Works great. Just make sure you epoxy the leash latch permanently shut so it will never open and the lose the retriever. Mine is going on 15+ years.
  11. Jerkbait? Weighted t-rigged fluke?
  12. One Vernon Apple spoils the bunch.
  13. See. Proof. God hates a Jayhawker.

  15. I believe that's the "iPhone Effect".
