  2. Hey, everyone.. Just want to stop by and say hello and give you an update on the Mrs.. Been a long hard Summer so far.. Half way through the cemo now, but still have 9 more weeks, then a 6 week break and then back at it again for 12 more weeks, a long road ahead indeed.. Been trying to work the AM shift and keep the Afternoons open to be with her, so time to do anything else let's just say is not there.. Just want to update all of my good friends on here, we are still here and fighting like Hell!! Thank you again for all of the prayers and kind words.. They do help.. Hope to see all of you on the water.. Be safe and good fishing!! Capt. Don
  3. Well Yes it has been unreal on the Rock for the last two weeks for me.. Really got on the Small Jaw bite with the tube.. They were eating it just like Mr. B said in one of his reports.. Some so bad just had to cut the line.. I found my best bites came in the 25 to 35 foot range away from the bushes, single cedars on a flat was my big fish target and it paid off for over a week of really good size fish.. Had one that came two days ago.. Biggest small mouth I have ever caught on this lake, never been able to two fist a small mouth, lifted her by her belly and my hand was gone.. Waiting on client to email me pictures, he had the nice digital camera, took one with my Iphone and it does not do any justice for this fish.. Will post pictures when I get them.. Here are some from the last few days.. Now went out this morning Cold weather shut them off..... Had my rear end handed to me from 7 to 11... Only 6 fish all small mouth and nothing over 15"... Still seeing them, but just could not get the bite, probably started this afternoon.. Back it it in the morning will see if they come back to life.. Warm weather is coming!! Good Fishing Don
  4. Most of these are good to go.. State Park Ramp (Dam Area) Indian Point Ramp (Dam Area) Cow Creek Ramp (Dam Area ) Mill Creek Ramp (Kimberling City) Aunts Creek (Deep Water Ramp) Others can add to this I'm sure most are starting to open back up... Don

  7. 1.was looking for anyone who has been on the rock, was curios about the water color and maybe how far it has moved toward dam from river arms. I can speak for Kimberling City Bridge to Indian Point (North Side of Dam) Water color Very good, Rivers Like the James and Long Creek is that muddy water moving down lake and is pure mud.. In Long Creek Mud Line is at State Park now heading towards the Dam 2. and are the fish still at the old bank still or are they movin to the flooded timber YES TO BOTH!! Bushes and Pole Timber 3. has water temp come up, i heard it dropped to mid 50's with all the rain Well some locations.. Worst I have found was 57 but I have found 60 to 61 Yesterday.. Driving over to Cow Creek Now to See if it is accessible.. Good Fishing... Capt. Don
  8. mrcold, no you will be fine.. Ramps are starting to be open now and I'm catching fish around the Indian Point to Point 7 area ok, so bite is still on.. Just make sure you stay in the clean water areas and away from the rivers.. That is where alot of the bad stuff floating is.. Just be safe and have a good time.. Good Fishing Capt. Don
  9. Hey Thanks Everyone, really want to thank you for the kind words... Her surgery went fine yesterday have her back home and resting.. Round one is over now only 2 more to go... Once again thanks for your thoughts and prayers.. Now lets get back on the water!!! Capt, Don
  10. S&M, I know what you mean, would like to get out myself.. But the Missouri State Water Patrol has asked all boaters to stay off of Table Rock Lake until atleast May 1st.. This is one for your safety because of the large floating debris fields and second to help from further destruction from wake of the boats on these boat docks that are barely hanging on.. If you can find a way on, go for it. Leave the Big Motor up or just wait a few more days and we will be good to go.. Be Careful.. Don
  11. Dotty when was this?? today??
  12. Well from your on the scene reporter.. WOW!!! Long Creek is pretty Bad, large log jam at the Bridge and all the way back around the corner and past the Long Creek Marina.. Stumps floating everywhere, all that is left at the swim beach is the Landing which was 6 feet above the beach.. Marina is now a floating Island and jammed packed with logs, parking lot is gone.. Ramp is way gone at Long Creek... Here we go again.. Trip in the morning will see how the rest of the lake is.. Will report back.. Good Fishing Capt. Don
  13. Phil is a good old boy for sure!! Love to work with him. Like Bill said something we already know, but still good to hear.. By the way Matt Nice Black!! D
  14. Selling my Backup Minnkota Fortrex 62" Shaft 101 pound thrust 36V.. Used only once, brand new Fortrex Mount.. Changing boats sizes no longer needed.. Asking 1000.00 with no box.. Questions or pic's email me on this site or at don@bransonfishingguideservice.com
  15. Whack, they are really easy to install and are made by Humminbird... If you need any help just ask, can help anyway I can.. Be Safe Good Fishing Capt. D
  16. It has been happening to me alot this year.. Fish are there and just not biting... Come back 4 hours later and load the boat.. Spring Fishing gotta love it! Good Fishing
  17. Get fished, Yes this is an 1197 unit. I have it mounted on the front of the boat with an SI transducer on the Trolling Motor and another one on the outside of my hull Aluminum Boat.. Use a A/B Switch box to change front to rear display. My way of not having to Buy another unit. All of those shots were read on the trolling motor transducer, but really only difference is about 18.5 feet, use the SI and DI on the front for looking around and under docks and such.. As far as the 2-D compared to the DI or SI I really use them all, each has its own place, DI and SI are for searching, 2-D is for catching.. Good Fishing..
  18. Joe, yes they do.. When you want them too... We can turn items off and on with out 15 menu steps.. Be Good Buddy, Don

  20. Techo, Well from what I hear is that Aunts Creek is really on right now.. Ton's of fish everywhere... Just look for the Guy in the White and Red Skeeter ask him where to fish he will help you.. You will know it is him, little boat and this Oak Tree of a man sitting in the seat.. Tell Him I sent you... Later Buddy.,.. Don
  21. Duck, it was crazy... Had to go back into protected pockets most of the time, really good banks were of course out there in the wind.. It was all I could do to hold the boat for my clients.. But it paid off.. No Flyrods here, heck had to double the weight on these split shot rigs just so you could cast them and they still just hung in the air for a few seconds... Once it turned on it was great.. Be Safe Don
  22. Another one of those strange days indeed yesterday, Started out around 6:30am at Big Cedar running up lake into the creek arms and fishing secondary points with docks and timber, depth of fish is from 15 to 25 feet with larger schools in the 40 feet range staging to move up.. Seen alot of beds and a few roaming fish, but looks like they pushed back out early.. Red Fins, Spooks, Split Shot Rigs, Shakey Jigs, Flukes, Senkos, Grubs and Blades in the wind you name it, fish were just slow at best, only had 4 fish with one really good black by noon.. Then it happened again 12:00 to 3:00pm it was like someone flipped the light switch on again.. Same locations we had fished in the morning flat came to life in the afternoon.. Just one point gave us 14 fish, had to have wind blowing in on it and it had to be pea gravel or small rock.. Slow dragging of the split shot rig with a green pumpkin fish doctor was the best bite by 5 to 1, but they were eating a shakey jig and a few on blades in the blasting winds. Still locating very large schools of spotted bass on the front of some deep water docks, have not found a way to get them to bite yet, have a few items to try this afternoon, but when they do holy cow going to be a blast. Had two days last week early morning around 6:30 had fish just flat eating the red fin, nice large fat spotted bass, but that has slowed, waiting on some good cloudy days and that should really take off. Getting really close, fish are in a holding pattern and waiting temps to warm the water or the Next Full Moon.. Really feel like when they go it will be an all out dash.. Good Fishing Everyone Capt. Don
