  1. Ah.....Got it. Carrot float goes on the line followed by a section of shrink tube to keep things from getting tangled and then the indicator goes on as a stopper. I was thinking the carrot float and indicator were actually hooked together by the shrink tube for some reason. You explained it well, but my brain was not computing it so well. I think I'll put together a couple of set ups and see how it goes.
  2. Great information Bill and that makes perfect sense after seeing it. Are the carrot float/indicator combos available commercially or are the guides building their own? I did some Google searches and couldn't find anything.
  3. Late report and nothing earth shattering. Morning was slow fishing at the island up past the Branson campground. Afternoon was much better, rainbows were stacked in front of the landing. I held the boat in 11-13' of water and fished spinners, jigs, and spoons for several back to back fish. Left at 3PM with the fish still on the bite. Fish were healthy, pulled hard, and decent size with just a couple little silver bullet rainbows mixed it. I do have a question. I watched a guide fishing longer rods with an interesting indicator sort of looked like a cigar slip float with a string below it attached to something else. Could someone share some insight on the indicator?
  4. My daughter and I wanted to take advantage of the good weather and put in at the Branson campground ramp around 10:30. Plenty of water flowing. We ran to the island for a long release on a feisty rainbow for her using power eggs. I managed the same in short order. Not much catching going on around us. Made the drift several times for some short bites. Moved to the landing and caught a small brown on a spinner. The fish was clean, light colored, and pulled hard. Had a decent rainbow follow the spinner and long released a small rainbow when it jumped. Missed a few more fish on power bait. Made one more pass at the island for a rainbow for the daughter. Great weather, slow fishing over all. Almost forgot, we ran to Fall Creek and tossed jerkbaits for awhile for nada.
  5. I am going to see if my dad and son are game with coming down. I want to get that first fish of the year caught so that monkey is off my back.
  6. Put in at the Branson campground ramp about 11:30 and ran up to the island. Caught a few on spinners and power eggs, no water running that I could tell. Moved down to the White River Fish Co. and caught fish it, even had a short double. Back to the island for a few more before calling it. Spinners and power eggs work well. I didn't have any jigs with me, need to refill my box. Tossed a jerkbait a few times, but wasn't feeling it.
  7. I was wondering this myself. Good sporting chance I'll be down there fishing regardless.
  8. We budget Christmas as well as everything else in the household. Whatever the presents are they have to fit in the budget. If it doesn't fit, it doesn't get bought. No credit card bills after the holiday, no regrets.
  9. Mind if I ask what pound line and what type of retrieve you are using on the jerkbaits?
  10. Is that for the boat for the day or per person/per day?
  11. Time frame doesn't work for me, but I would be interested in details of the trip (boat, cost, ect...). I have been considering a Venice trip and would love to hear some firsthand information.
  12. Put in at the Branson camp ground ramp around 11:30, still space for 4 or 5 rigs which surprised me given how nice the weather was. Summary....Lots of boats, lots of people, plenty of fish being caught. Watched bait dunkers and trollers both catching fish steadily. Caught ours on spinners retrieved medium fast over submerged weeds. 50/50 between little silver bullets and nicer sized darker colored fish.
  13. I have another commitment on the 28th or I would be all over this. I just got the boat back from the shop, gear is prepped, and I'll be flipping pancakes instead of fish into the boat. I can't catch a break.
  14. Ditto what Travis said. When I have one of my kids with me it is nice to tie up and go have lunch. Good fishing off the docks also.
  15. Sorry I did not make it with the buffalo chicken dip. After going to the gym my son wanted to go see Star Wars and I wanted to do something with him before school started back. Happy New Year to all and hopefully I'll be down for January 1 2019.
